Heinz Field…What A Beautiful Grassy Mess

April 20, 2011

With the NFL releasing the Steelers 2011 schedule yesterday, it looks like the perfect storm is complete.  Again, over an 9-day span from Saturday November 26th – Sunday December 4th, six football games will be played at Heinz Field.

On Saturday November 26th, there will be the A, AA, AAA, and AAA WPIAL High School Football championships.

One week later, on Saturday December 3rd, Syracuse will be in town for Pitt’s final game of the season.

The following day, the Steelers will take on the Cincinnati Bengals.

We’ve learned from past experiences that the six days in between games is not enough time to re-sod properly…

This punt plugged like a golf ball due to the rain and lose turf.  So with a torn up field, it will look something like this for Pitt/Syracuse and Steelers/Bengals…

That’s actually from the Citrus Bowl two years ago, but it won’t be far off and we all know it. Just a shame that UCF doesn’t play there anymore…it would have been another reason to invite them to join the league over Villanova so Pitt doesn’t have the worst turf in the BIG EAST. Oh well.
