Stadium Officials say Frisco Turf will be Better Than Last Year’s


BEFORE ALL OF THE HOOPLA AT A NATIONAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP, A LOT OF WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE, .. AND ONE OF THE KEY ELEMENTS .. IS A GORGEOUS NATURAL TURF. THAT’S WHAT THE BISON ARE PLAYING ON DOWN IN FRISCO, TEXAS, THIS WEEKEND. VALLEY NEWS TEAM’S MIKE MORKEN GOT A LOOK AT THE TURF .. AND JOINS US LIVE THIS MORNING FROM TOYOTA STADIUM. “THIS YEAR THE WEATHER WAS MUCH MORE FAVORABLE FOR GROWING THE TURF AFTER HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALLW AS FINISHED THIS YEAR WE WENT HEAVILY SEEDED WITH RYE GRASS. THE WEATHER COOPERATED BEAUTIFUL .. CHRISTMAS DAY IT WAS 64 DEGREES HERE AND OF COURSE THIS WEEK FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMEA ND THE COLD COMES IN” WHAT WAS THE KEY TO GETTING IT TO STICK THIS TIME? IT’S KIND OF LIKE COOKING, YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A BAD FIRE YOU’RE GOING TO END UP WITH A BAD MEAL.. SO WE PUT ALL THE INGREDIENTS THIS YEAR THAT WE THOUGHT WOULD WORK. BUT WE NEEDED A LITTLE HELP FROM MOTHER NATURE AND WE GOT THAT… AND NORMALLY WE DO. IT’S JUST LAST YEAR IT WAS THE WORST WINTER WE HAD IN 30 YEARS. THIS GRASS IS A BURMUDA BLEND. IT’S GROOMED AND KEPT SO THAT IT’S A FAST TRACK.. AND THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE SAYING IT’S GOING TO BE ON SATURDAY. “ONE OF THE KEYS THINGS HERE WHEN WE’RE WANTING A GOOD ATHLETIC FIELD DEALING WITH WARM-SEASON GRASS LIKE WE DO DOWN HERE IN THE SOUTH.. IS THAT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH PATCH AND IT CAN GET REAL THICK AND PLAYERS CAN GET THEIR CLEATS STICK AND IT WILL SLOW THEM DOWN. HERE WE HAVE A FAST TRACK. AND THE FIRST COUPLE OF YEARS THAT NORTH DAKOTA STATE WAS HERE THEY RAVED ABOUT THE FIELD AND HOW FAST IT WAS AND HOW WELL IT PLAYED. IT SHOULD BE THAT SAME WAY SATURDAY.” GET YOUR FRIENDS TOGETHER FOR OUR SPECIAL 90- MINUTE PETRO- SERVE USA BISON FOOTBALL PRE- GAME SHOW ON GAME DAY TOMORROW. IT STARTS AT 10:30 A-M ON VALLEY NEWS LIVE: CHANNEL 11. BETH HOOLE, BRIAN SHAWN, LEE TIMMERMAN, KEVIN FEENEY, MIKE MORKEN, AND CHIEF PHOTOGRAPHER DAVE ERICKSON WILL HAVE YOU COVERED RIGHT UP TO KICKOFF AGAINST ILLINOIS STATE.
