I wonder if there has been any news about changing the turf out at Carlisle/Faulkner Field at M. M. Roberts Stadium? The current surface, which has been in place since 2004, survived Hurricane Katrina the following season but it has had drainage problems in recent years.
Either USM should get a new turf surface or do like Southeastern Louisiana's football program did, and get the artificial surface from the Louisiana Superdome. The turf the Saints played on in 2011 was sent to Strawberry Stadium in Hammond and installed there. I believe the Saints change their turf every year, and with the right drainage system, it or a brand-new surface would be better than the current one. Heck, even grass would be better.
If there are any updates, let me know.
