There isn't an official link for this or even a mention of a source, so it's not clear where this speculation is coming from -- take it with a grain of salt. After the debacle that was the field during the A&M game, it makes sense to think about this. The Disch just had FieldTurf installed last fall, so there is precedent within the program. Personally, I don't like artificial playing surfaces, but that's mostly for aesthetic reasons. Where this move doesn't make sense, however, is the fact that the administration spent a lot of money recently to move from AstroTurf to the current setup, so it seems premature to switch again.
