I'm always amazed at how f-ed up that blue is on the screen. "My rods and cones are all screwed up Jerry!"
spoiler alert: i linked this
but I agree. I can't stand that blue field.
(and yes, I know it's a quote)
Just awful. Everything about Boise State's aesthetics says "Hey, we should actually be in the XFL!"
I think it works for them, b/c its so unique. I actually like the architecture / design of Boise's stadium too, kind of looks like a open air hockey arena with a football field
It works for them as long as they keep winning. Stop winning and it looks gimmicky and amateurish.
Then again, they'd still probably brag about it since, well, what else is there to brag about in Idaho?
But think about the brand identification they have. This is a small school in Idaho, and yet practically college football fan can instantly recognize a game played at their stadium when it's on TV. That's a big deal.
This is true. Though, as it is with any sport, they just have to keep winning. I think they'd be fine without the blue turf, but I like my playing surfaces green and, well, less seizure inducing.
What the fuck are you talking about "they have to keep winning"? 63-2 at home as of late. I guess they could win more (2) in that span. NO OTHER TEAM CAN CLAIM THEIR HOME RECORD.
Think before you make your self look sports retarded.
haven't gone custom color-ed turf, especially some of these "I wanna be Zombie Nation RAWK" schools.. like Nike springing for a neon yellow turf to match those hideous Duck jerseys.
- Texas Tech with black turf
- Northwestern with purple turf
And no, I do not want night games with maize jerseys and metallica intro music.... but maybe the hockey band learning "whammer jammer" by J Geils Band would be nice...
but I think the NCAA now has a rule stating that the field must be green in color, with Boise's field being grandfathered in. Again though - I could be wrong.
And to be perfectly fair if I were a Boise fan I'd probably love the field. As a non-fan, and someone completely ambivalent to Boise as a team, I dislike it.
that's seems really toolish, but it is the NC-Double A, so I guess I'm not surprised.
has proven me incorrect.
reading that entry you linked to, I saw Boise is 64-2 since 1999 at home, with the only two losses coming to wash St in 2001 and BC in a bowl game in 2005 (Matt Ryan led Eagles?). I guess roll on blue turf-ers, roll on.
I know they are rolling at home, but on ESPN they just did their trivia question. "How many games has Boise State played at home vs. ranked teams since 1999." The answer was ONE- tonight. Guess that is what happens when you play in the WAC!
i imagine 20-30 players would die each game from the heat!
of their games at night. But think of the home field advantage?
"Well texas texh won their 45th consecutive home game on their black turf, aka "Death Grass" as the opposition could only field a squad of 8 players by the end of the game due to exhaustion, heat stroke, and acts of piracy"
I want to see their field match the parking spot. (via The Wiz Of Odds)
Man, if Leach wasn't a college football coach, he'd just be a really creepy guy that plays pirate video games all the time.
Actually, that probably is still true.
As a Tech grad student, I'm glad it isn't.
Does the blue turf look like it is 20 years old or something? I have HD, but the turf looks like the most worn out turf ever, kinda like worn out driving range turf.
I was beginning to wonder if it was field turf or old-school astro turf.
I was just on the turf in February, and it's FieldTurf (well, that type of turf), and it's in good shape. I think your tv is just sulking for some reason.
How does the QB see WRs when they have the exact same color jersey and pants as the turf?
It probably doesn't bother them too much, since they see it all of the time in practice. The opposing QB, however, might have trouble seeing the DBs.
"I don't think Kenny has any idea what's going on down there." -Kramer (of course)
I'm not sure what the hell this has to do with blue turf, but damn it, I don't care.
+1 to you, you fine connoisseur of Seinfeld.
Oregon just went over 10 yards of total offense...
with 30 seconds left in the first half!
Boise's a tough nut at home, but Oregon looks really poorly prepared, especially on offense.
Hey, Chip Kelly, not so easy, eh?
Honestly that might have been the worst half of offensive football I've ever seen, and that's saying an awful lot. 14 yards of offense, five three and outs, and no first downs.
Where were you last year? Only a few drives for Oregon, they were inept but come on, they needed the ball more.
Going for two (AGAIN!) when every sign points to the game being over? What the heck is this guy thinking?
I guess he just doesn't care whether people in his profession like him or not.
Or whether his kicker feels trusted or not.
watching this game BSU has an unfair advantage with that blue turf and their all blue uniforms. How the hell is the opposing QB supposed to see those safeties and LBs? I just hate that blue turf..
