DKR is going back to turf. The Austin American Statesman released a statement today:
At a meeting of UT's men's athletics council on Wednesday, men's athletics director DeLoss Dodds said the $27 million south end zone construction project will include the replacement of the stadium's natural grass field with a synthetic turf.
I remember the good old days when DKR was open to the public because there wasn't any grass to screw up. Maybe they'll do it again? Probably a pipe dream.
