A couple of weeks ago Nebraska Athletic Director Trev Alberts mentioned on Sports Nightly that the turf at Memorial Stadium needed to be replaced. A caller asked him if he would consider natural grass. Trev gave it some thought and said he would explore the idea.

On this edition of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented the Rimington Trophy, Dr. Rob Zatechka and Travis Justice go on a natural grass expedition. We talk to Brad Jakubowski. Brad is a Grand Island native, worked at the University of Nebraska, and is now an instructor of Plant Science at Penn State. He's pro grass and has good reason to be.
