I guess I am one of the few people who likes the Smurf Turf.

If EWU wants to do it, more power to them. I would not want a red field, but I did like the Purple JMU field

How many more BCS bowls do they have to play in (and win) before you guys realize they're not in the Big Fluffy anymore?

I know, that's exactly what I was thinking.

I live in the Houston area, and the only time I hear people around here talking about Boise State it is usually about how good they are.
You guys can't be that dumb can you? Novody is talking about what they are doing on the field...the "punchline" comment is about their actual field...the Blue Turf...which is what this thread is about...colored turf.

Jesus christ fellas, follow the topic.

I think it would be cool. Life is too short for conformity.
"Sarah Palin absolutely blew AWAY the audience tonight. If there was any doubt as to whether she was savvy enough, tough enough or smart enough to carry the mantle of Vice President, she put those fears to rest tonight. She took on Barack Obama DIRECTLY on every issue and exposed... She did it with warmth and humor, and came across as the every-person....it's becoming mroe and more clear that she was a genius pick for McCain."

I know what you're talking about, you guys just make it seem like every time someone talks about BSU they talk about the turf...not the case.

That and it's impossible to watch a BSU game going more than 5 minutes without a Smurf Turf or Blue Turf reference

Maximum/Clenz you fellas don't agree.

Well maybe there is room for both there. It is not the only thing that is talked about but it is referenced every time and it is referenced as you would your crazy aunt. In other words no matter how good BSU is they are made fun of a little bit every time they play for their field. It's stupid but it happens.

Yeah, it sounds like he is talking about announcers, I was talking about actual football fans/people I hang out with.

That's really a pretty good post, especially the crazy aunt part. BSU has proven they can play at the FBS level, but every time they're on tv the 'smurf turf' is actually a joke the announcers can't let go of. Even though EWU will never make more than regional coverage it'll be interesting to see what the red turf is dubbed.

That'd be the whitish sticky stuff while you're getting fucked so you might as well just start with a pink field to match the running track right off the bat. :nod: :nod: :nod: :nod: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah, this is how I feel. All the smurf turf jokes were played out in 05/06 after the big OU win.

Back then my friends would say, "hey you know that team with the blue turf is on tonight,..."

now it's "hey boise state is on tonight".

maybe me and kalm just hang out with people who care about the game and the rest of you hang out with people who care about colors and turf and other weird shit. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :lol:

Exactly.

Who gives a shit what the color of the field is, as long as your team is wiping it with the other. :thumb:


EWU could put in a pink and purple field, and we'd still beat the (MSU) Bobcats on it. :nod:

Agreed, and if you have never been to boise to watch a game you would understand this 10 fold. It is horrific to try and watch a game on that field. With that being said it is also the worst stadium I have watched an outdoor game at easily. And as far as their tailgating goes it ranks right up there with Polson High school. :rofl:

It's official !

Eastern Athletic Director Bill Chaves, who is working with associate athletic director for development Marc Hughes on the project, said EWU needs to secure additional funding through private contributions before actual replacement can be started. It is hoped that the project can be funded and completed in time for the 2010 season.

"There is no doubt that one of Boise State's claim to fame has been their blue turf and like it or dislike it, it has certainly brought them a tremendous amount of notoriety," said Chaves. "In a similar vein we have a tremendous opportunity at Eastern to do the same by differentiating ourselves with the red turf while providing a superior playing surface."

"There is no doubt that the blue turf at Boise State has brought them notoriety, but until they started winning, it was notoriety nobody wanted."
Everything in smurf blue predicted by everyone else.

Winning solves everything.
