    Default How many grass fields in D2?

    I saw this tweet and wondered about D2. Then I wondered about FCS and FBS too.

    In the NSIC, only Minnesota-Crookston and MSU-Mankato have grass fields.

    They are getting rare in high school, let alone college.

    The GAC has 3 grass fields. Arkansas-Monticello, Oklahoma Baptist, and Ouachita Baptist.

    When one field is used year round for multiple sports, turf is a necessity.

    As far as the CIAA goes, to my knowledge only Bowie State, Fayetteville State, Shaw and Lincoln have turf fields.

    All PSAC football stadiums have field turf. I believe Bloomsburg was one of the last teams to have grass. We upgraded to field turf when the stadium was completely remodeled in 2008.

    I don't think there are any MIAA teams with grass.

    The GSC has West Georgia with grass and West Florida with grass/dirt combo.UWF plays in a minor league baseball stadium.

    RMAC I believe has Fort Lewis and Western State still with grass. Chadron made the transition in the off season to turf.

    WOU still has grass as the only school in the GNAC as CWU replaced theirs this summer.

    Technically Cheyney was the last - they had grass until they cut all NCAA sports in the spring. Although technically I wouldn't have called that field grass. It resembled a hillside that a farmer has for goats to graze.

    Pueblo has grass fields everywhere you look. Except the stadium. That's artificial turf.
    Sprinkles are for winners!

    If you are having a buck thorn problem, get some goats. They do a great job of getting rid of those noxious trees.

    As WK alludes to above, the GNAC will have one less grass field beginning Saturday evening!

    There are no grass fields in the GMAC. However, Lake Erie's website lists a grass field. I've been to LEC for a game and to my knowledge, unless something changed in the last couple of years, they have an artificial surface.

    It's too bad Tug McGraw is deceased and can't comment in this thread.
