Rocky Long calls out Boise State's blue turf

San Diego State head coach Rocky Long called out Boise State, the newest member of the Mountain West Conference during a conference call earlier today.

Long’s issue deals with the blue turf at Bronco Stadium.

“I think they ought to get rid of that blue turf. I think it’s unfair,” said Long, who was promoted to head coach when Brady Hoke left for Ann Arbor.

Long added, “It takes the visiting team a quarter or two to get used to that different field.”

Perhaps Long is trying to get other coaches to voice their frustration, so in 2012 when the Aztecs visit Bronco Stadium, the field will be green.

Umm…can you say, “No chance?”

The teams that have to deal with the “Smurf Turf” next season are Tulsa, Nevada, Air Force, TCU, Wyoming, and New Mexico.
