    You know its the offseason when I start looking at what type fields teams play on.
    Looking at the AP final poll, eight of the top 10 teams played on grass fields.

    1. Alabama - Grass
    2. Georgia - Grass
    3. Oklahoma - Grass
    4. Clemson - Grass
    5. Ohio St. - FieldTurf
    6. UCF - Grass
    7. Wisconsin - FieldTurf
    8. Penn St. - Grass
    9. TCU - Grass
    10. Auburn - Grass

    Ten out of the 14 teams in the SEC play on grass.

    Arkansas - Sportexe
    Ole Miss - FieldTurf
    Missouri - FieldTurf
    Vanderbilt - Shaw Sport Turf

    What does this all mean? Hell, I don't know but I believe God meant for
    football to be played on grass fields. Your 2 cents welcome...............

    Florida Field used to be turf until Spurrier showed up in 1990 and tore it out.

    Unless it's a weather issue I don't know why teams wouldn't play on grass.

    The field at Boise should be banned as well, it's a joke. It was a gimmick and they've stuck with it too long.

    Coach, have you ever seen Eastern Washington play on TV. The field is red and will give
    you a headache trying to watch the game.

    I agree about Boise State...all fields should be green in my opinion. I believe Boise has
    an advantage wearing blue uniforms while playing on a blue field. Takes a visiting team
    awhile to adjust.

    Yeah, Eastern Washington's is a joke too. But they're a 1AA team, so it's not shown (on TV) very often.
