New look for SCSU

For anyone who has ever walked across the field at Jess Dow Stadium on the campus of Southern Connecticut State, you know how worn out it was.

It's also gone.

SCSU is in the midst of replacing the turf which was over 10 years old and wearing out badly. While the new field won't be blue like cross-town rival New Haven, it will be a pleasure to watch games on and even better for the players.

The new fields aren't as fast as old ones, they're softer and deeper but they will be welcomed by football players. Soccer players don't seem to complain about the new surface but field hockey players often balk about bad hops.

It was badly needed.
