Work today started on what everyone has been waiting for, the turf is going down on the new stadium. The construction crew has begun installing the turf, and they started right in the middle. The picture you see from the press box looking down is the 50-yard line stripe.

The two boxes on either side of the turf are right about where the sidelines will begin. The crew hopes to have the turf laid out and completed in the next few weeks.

The turf is being put in by Shaw Sportexe and the actually model of the turf is PowerBladeHP.
