As I'm thinking about this...I believe there are only three teams left in the SEC who don't play on grass: Ole Miss, Vandy, and Mizzou.
I'm unaware of any higher incidence of injury on sprint turf, a little more springy than most natural turf fields. Now, if you take the incidence of leukemia in female goalkeepers who continuously dive into those granules of recycled tires, that's another issue. I think that might be the next class action.I remember back that astroturf had a much higher degree of injury rate than grass. Not sure about all these fields made of rubber but it can't be as healthy as grass. That would be the bottom and only line for my football team.
