— While laborers continued to work feverishly Friday afternoon to lay down new sod at $1.3 billion Levi’s Stadium, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh insisted the field would be ready for Sunday’s preseason game with the San Diego Chargers . “As far as diving into this and peeling back the onion, I mean, what for?” Harbaugh said Friday. “We are getting a new field in. It will be in there for Sunday. It will be very good for this week, and our organization will always do things at the highest level.” Except, apparently, when it came to the original grass field, which was composed of Bandera Bermuda and planted in April, which should have given view publisher site the grass enough time to take root. Instead, new sod is being laid for Sunday’s game — from goal line to goal line and sideline to sideline.
