    I posted a while back about the fact TCF Bank Stadium is getting new turf - and had recalled the deal with the Loons said they had to replace the turf when they departed to their new stadium. It is nice to hear this finally is happening.

    My biggest fear is they do some sort of multi-functional turf painting design that requires more field painting and less stitching. PLEASE NO!

    I hope it goes back to maroon end zones. I miss those maroon end zones so much I no longer care if they are a perfect match to the shade of maroon on the seat backs.

    Any knowledge or guesses on what it will look like? I guess I would assume it will be a copy of what is in the new indoor practice facility. Just please go back to stitching and maroon end zones.

    I think they are doing anthracite endzones. /s

    I'd love some of that for my backyard batting cage...but, yeah, 500 lbs could be hard to handle.

    Request the odd length rolls. It mentions that there may be some.

    Spoke with the stadium manager last week. Maroon end zones. I don't know if the Minnesota will be in the old typeface or match the new indoor field (didn't think about asking that question).

    It will essentially be the same as it was originally just with updated B1G and TCF Bank Stadium logos.

    Is this the original turf? Or has this been done before?

    Also, it would be awesome if someone took it ALL and built their own Gopher field of dreams on some farm in the country.

    Serious question:

    Is anybody familiar enough with this stuff to know if it would be a viable alternative to the artificial grass some folks are getting on their lawns (can you cut it easily, would I need to remove topsoil first, etc.)?

    I have a small back yard and the %^&$ dog destroys it every year. I'm done repairing it every spring.

    I don't think so.

    This stuff has to be anchored properly and still maintained / has a shelf life.... and those black rubber bits get EVERYWHERE.
