So maybe the water drains under the sod?  The field is crowned and maybe that is how the water gets off rather than puddling? 

Increases porosity ... improves drainage.

So I am guessing this is the porosity between the sod and the ground?

Whatever it is....it seems to work well....have seen some major downpours that did not stay on the surface of the field very long.   Don't know if it is the same system that was in place for the West Virginia game several years ago but it was amazing they were able to play after about a half foot of rain fell in an hour....and yet in the second half the field was in good shape.

But two things for sure......AU ought to know how to grow grass ......and how to get rid of unwanted water...:)

When I started AU/API in 1957 both end zones were open and the team came out from the Field House located in the bottom left of the picture. I can't remember if the visitors did also. Its been fun to watch the changes over the years.

So, is there a lottery for lockers or a round robin double elimination pin the tail on the donkey challenge that determines who gets one?

So does this mean that we don't have enough lockers for our football team?  That seems pretty cheap.  Hope this is addressed in the upcoming reno.  UTx can have stainless with tvs and we have folding chairs.

My gosh...we spend a fortune on the football program and it's gonna kill some guys to sit in regular chairs 6 or 7 times a year?  We have something like 110 players on the roster.....and 85 scholarship positions I guess.....so maybe they get the lockers?  

Maybe that was a tongue in cheek comment but I really don't care what UTx has....can spend their money however they like but unless there is a bottomless pit of money for AU athletics, might want to look for projects that have more beneficiaries....JMO.
