We love the smurf turf at Boise State. Sure it's gimmicky and a little absurd, but when it comes right down to it, sports are supposed to be gimmicky and a little absurd. However, I have to admit that sometimes it's tough watching the Broncos play on the blue stuff. There's just something off with the contrast of the turf and when Boise State is wearing their home blues, the players tend to blend right into the field. Check it out.
Next season this problem will be corrected, as the turf is getting replaced this summer with a different shade of blue, which will supposedly be better on the eyes than the current version. This is great news for football fans who want to watch Chris Peterson's team play and actually see the players.
So while we support the smurf turf and look forward to the new color, we're drawing the line at Eastern Washington's soon to be red turf. Sorry scary video voice over guy, we're not buying this:
