2012 Media Day: Memorial Stadium turf thrills Tedford

By Kevin Danna, pac-12.org

After playing their home games at AT&T Park in San Francisco last season, the California Golden Bears are ready to return to a renovated Memorial Stadium.

Coach Jeff Tedford sounds as excited as anyone to be home. At Tuesday's Pac-12 football media day in Los Angeles, Tedford's voice rose as he described a photo he saw earlier in the day that showed the first row of turf being placed on the field.

"After spring football I had an opportunity to sit down with each and every one of our players and talk about the different things in their life," Tedford said. "Many of them talked about the excitement of getting back home ... in that environment that's so special at Memorial Stadium."
