Freeze-dried turf not frozen yet, still for sale

The ongoing saga of the freeze-dried turf continues without any new developments. Still, the yet-to-be-frozen grass from Bryant-Denny Stadium remains posted on the Steiner Sports website even though the company does not have possession of the said turf.

A quick phone call to Crimson Tide Sports Marketing on Wednesday revealed nothing much has changed since our last conversation. The field is still in tact, and with temperatures well into the 90s, ice is the last thing on anyone’s mind in Tuscaloosa.

Bryant Bruce, the corporate sponsorship coordinator for CTSM, said the school still intends to sell the turf once its ready and it plans to do it the legal way. That means putting the grass up for bid which won’t likely happen until July.

Still, Steiner advertises it on its site as if it was the owner, just as it has since January.

Granted, this isn’t Watergate, but still an interesting situation to pass the summer months.

And now, to maybe help deal with the heat wave, I present The Bama Blog video of the day.
