Will Ohio Stadium Ever Return To a Natural Playing Surface? Should It?

Perhaps it is strictly a nostalgic thing for me but I really miss the grass playing surface around college football. The satisfaction of seeing grass stains on an opposing QB from a big hit lasting throughout the game was awesome. For some reason Clarett's purple stained jersey at Northwestern stand with me after he dove for a TD. Tebow's gladiator game (red stained jersey) also stick with me. Grass being stuck in the facemask of a fierce linebacker was cool to see as well.

Perhaps the turf gives our speed an advantage over a grass surface at home but I sure do miss the natural surface. Will OSU ever return to a grass playing surface? Should they? Do you want them to?
