is it time for the blue turf to go

Recommended Posts

now that BSU has beaten OU and given itself some credibilty should the school ditch (ASAP) the blue turf for green or keep it as their trademark?

No! The blue turf is what makes Boise St. unique!

Hell no. Blue turf is what BSU is all about. As long as that university is standing, they will have blue turf.

Actually I was watching the "whatever the :censored: it is computer bowl" from Boise and I noticed that it's a lot easier to watch a game on the blue turf than it is on green. The contrast was much better and it seemed easier on my eyes. I think the blue works a lot better for TV than green does.

I love the blue turf, except for the fact that Boise St. wears solid blue at home. Their whole team blends in with the turf and it looks weird.

I like the blue turf. In fact, I'd say Boise State got its reputation initially because of the blue turf.

I wonder what some other college fields would look like in team colors? Imagine the Big House with blue turf, or the LA Coliseum decked out in red for USC..... interesting thought...

They aren't going to get rid of the blue turf. Do you think that it doesn't help recruiting?

Hell no. Hell will freeze over and Tahoe will hit 100 degrees before Boise replaces the blue turf.

Does it also look weird to you when teams wear green uniforms on green fields?

Wow, I couldn't disagree more. Tried to watch part of a game there on TV once and it gave me a headache. It was like my brain kept trying to correct the color to green.

Well, nobody's really wearing grass green that I can think of offhand. Boise should go to all-orange to pop out against the blue.

Boise originally got blue turf about 20 years ago. When they got their field replaced a few years back with the next-gen artificial turf, they elected to keep it blue. So, I think it's fair to say that the blue turf will be there for the forseeable future

All this time, I thought it was about the potatoes.

Agreed. It looks so odd and hurts the eyes.

You know what would hurt the eyes even more? If they scheduled a Duke vs. FIU game. AT Boise.

I think I might watch that game purely for the "car wreck" value.

Idaho Potatoes at a Idaho Resteraunt is always good
