Before the game, Ellis mentioned that the field at Ole Miss was a new grass surface. By the end of the game I reached the conclusion that I had never seen so many injuries to two teams in one game.

 

This makes me question the quality of the playing surface. Is there any SEC or NCAA rules or guidelines that that can be evoked so that an independent inspector can go to Ole Miss and take a look at the field and tell them what they need to do or not do and/or can USC file a complaint about the surface?

An inspector went to inspect their field and tore a ligament in his knee while inspecting.  :D

Man, Astro Turf from the '70s didn't create as many injuries as the Ole Miss sod last weekend...

Paul Dietzel wanted us to have artificial grass and asked evry fan to buy a square foot so we bought our two at our house being newly weds and having our season tix. It was like playing on concrete and .we had injuires but not like on that Ole Miss sod which seemed like closed cell foam rubber where the cleats hung up.


I wanta give these men a decent burial. Forget it. Buzzards gotta eat,same as worms.
