Boise State: The old blue turf it ain't what it used to be




The SEC (and the world) should be lucky that the "LSU installing purple turf in Tiger Stadium" story was an April Fools joke. It was an obvious nod to the infamous blue turf in Boise State's Broncos Stadium. The one that garnered headlines long before the Broncos started to really give the NCAA and the BCS headaches.
Sadly, that blue turf held up too well recently. It may have looked cool on TV back in the day, but in the crispness of today's HDTV's, it looks horrible. In fact, the most recent version of the turf, which was installed relatively recently in 2008, looked almost threadbare at times. This was apparently because "a reflective glare from fibers in the turf produces a dull, uneven shade of blue." (Yes genius, it's an artificial turf.)
Well the powers that be at Boise State have taken notice of this, and decided to fix the problem. A new turf will be installed this summer, to be ready in time for fall practice to commence on August 6. Yes, it will still be blue, just like it has been since 1986. It's probably too late to stop now, even though it's quirkiness has possibly overstayed its welcome.
