Why doesn’t UConn Football have an outdoor field turf practice field? This weekend and last weekend football camps have used the new soccer field for practices. There are two grass practice fields above the Sherman Family Athletic Complex. One field should be field turf.

Here's your chance to make it happen.

Which is the correct answer almost any time the question of "Why don't we have such and such a facility?" is asked.

Heck - other sports and intramurals having been using the indoor field @ Shenkmann for years.

They’ve been using the new turf intramural field across Jim Calhoun Way for the UConn Football Camps this year as well. Nice to have the versatility and ability to spread out by drill/positions.

Because thy have an indoor turf practice field. So they do not need an outdoor turf field. They also have outdoor grass practice fields which is the correct complement to an indoor turf practice field.
