College Football 2011: San Diego St. Coach Says Ban Boise's Blue Turf
This might be almost sacrilege.
New San Diego State coach Rocky Long, speaking on the Mountain West Conference’s spring conference call, welcomed in new member Boise State by blasting the Broncos' blue Smurf Turf.
"I think they ought to get rid of that blue turf. I think it's unfair," he said, according to the Idaho Statesman. When asked to expand, Long said, "it takes the visiting team a quarter or two to get used to that different field. Players rack the ball differently" on the blue turf, particularly since Boise State traditionally wears all-blue uniforms on the blue turf.
Boise State installed the blue turf in 1986. The Broncos are 69-2 at home since 2000, the highest home winning percentage in the country. Boise State went 40-0 at home in conference games during its 10-year WAC tenure.
