Anybody have any insight as to what to expect for field conditions on Thursday? There have been discussions about the weather impact on parking and tailgating, but I haven't seen any predictions about what shape the turf will be in.
Even if the rain tapers off before game time, I would have to believe that the turf is going to be saturated and quite possibly sloppy and slow. I'm guessing that the game could turn out to be ugly and low scoring, but haven't decided if either side gains an advantage from poor footing.
My guess is that the turf will be in great shape. It has been really dry for quiet some time before these latest rain showers so the ground and drainage system should be able to take care of all the moisture. I bet conditions will be very close to normal if it quits raining in the afternoon.
What'd they do - just mow it in the opposite direction every 10 yards? That looks sharper than when Nebraska "paints" it on to their field turf...
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
might be a little wet but as long as there are several hours for the drainage system to get ahead and some sun it will be good.
The dry weather most of the day today will help too. Everything should have dried out from yesterday's rain so the rain we get tonight and tomorrow should be no problem. Can't wait to walk into JT and make the walk down to our seats for the first time.
