Question by Vicarious Cynic: Should Boise State be allowed to have Blue Turf? Doesn’t their home record indicate a significant advantage?
First off – I’m an Oregon Alum – stating my bias.
Second – I’m a college football fan, and I don’t understand why Boise State is allowed to have a turf color that is Blue. Seems like a significant factor in the game. What if Miami went with Orange Turf? Or Ohio State wanted to use a Burgundy ball? Blue turf? Fine for the practice field – should not be allowed come game time.
Nuts – I know the rules allow them to, I’m really asking if that rule allows them to have an unfair competitive advantage.
Answer by froggy_logic
miami can have an orange feild if they want
ncaa would have an issue with a maroon ball for ohio st.
boise’s blue turf is not why their home record is so great. it has to do with the weak teams boise plays in and out of conferece every year and boise is in a non bcs conf. most bcs schools do not go to non bcs teams to play. Oregon is the only bcs school BSU has beaten i can remember?
BSU is still living off the fiesta bowl 4 years ago when they used 50 gimmick plays to beat oklahoma… but who hasn’t beaten OU in a bowl game?? bsu has beaten oregon twice and OU in the last 4 years. they are the most over hyped team west of notre dame
