    Texas A&M will be getting rid of the natural grass surface at Kyle Field after the season, but leave it to the Aggies to find a way to keep it green while doing so.

    Starting Monday, fans can shell out $400 at AggieAthletics.com to buy a pallet -- complete with a certificate of authenticity -- pulled from the playing surface after the final home game on Nov. 9. That equals approximately 450 square feet of sod that has been trampled upon by Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the rest of the Aggies this season.

    The school said a limited number of single grass squares will be offered for $20 each.

    I'm going to try to get a single plot or two of it. No way for me to get down and pick up a pallet of it and get it home. Well, there is a way but not worth it to me. Going to be tough to keep my st augustine from growing over it, but a cool story to tell.

    My Brother in Law lives in Bryan and works for the University. He bought a pallet.

    He called the other night and asked me if I wanted some bricks from G Rollie.

    He has the inside scoop on a lot of stuff and can hook me up with a lot of shit....except game tickets:gaah:

    I couldn't get down there and I knew it, so I didn't get any flats. Oh well.
