Bet you didn’t know the stadium was getting new turf.
I have to tell you that the installation is a wonder to observe. When I worked as a vice principal at Livingston High School, they installed Field Turf. I was out there everyday documenting the process. Truly amazing.
While it wasn’t announced as were a lot of the other construction projects, new turf - which typically costs $1 million-plus - is another shiny new toy for football. And it means that about 6,300 square yards (or 56,000 square feet) of the old stuff needs to be disposed of.
Well, there were a few people who asked the operations guys if you could buy a piece of turf. The answer?
Certain sections of the turf will be available for sale. Details on how to purchase TBD.— RU Facilities & Ops (@RU_Operations) July 5, 2017
Start saving your money. And think about it: at just $10/sf, they could raise about a half million dollars by selling the used turf. Voila: turf almost paid for.
Now, if we could just get red turf.
