BOISE, Idaho – Oklahoma State’s traveling party, four buses strong, came straight down Broadway from the Boise Airport to the University and pulled up at Albertsons Stadium. Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy and his security detail in Oklahoma Highway Patrolman John Vincent were the first ones off the bus and into the stadium to step on the blue turf.

Turf won't bother our team, but turf marching all blue uniforms running around camouflaged on that turf may. Shouldn't be allowed IMO. Should have been stipulated out in contract for this game. It's just wrong.

I agree about the blue uniforms on the blue field. Should be disallowed. Beat us on the field. Not on the camouflage.

green teams can't wear green on green turf?

anyway....


I was watching Boise play last game and several guys got hurt falling to their turf. One of the announcers made a comment about their turf (I don't remember exactly) which he implied was the older style of turf and was very hard.

I'm not sure exactly what that meant, or how he would know.

Wouldn't that work both ways? The Broncos wouldn't be able to see their own players also. They aren't looking down at the field, they are standing on it looking above it. There is no camouflage advantage. That's just an excuse all teams use when they get their ass's whooped on the blue. Do teams with green uniforms have an advantage on grass? Is this why the Packers have been so successful? No it's not, it's just a poor excuse for losing to a better team. IMO

yeah, there is that, and it's annoying to have to look at.... i guess there's that too..

makes Boise look like a gimmick team...

the blue field does not improve the image or perception of the program, and the team is traditionally good enough where you just don't need gimmicks and cheap tricks

one football fans opinion anyway...
