Rocky Long done griping about blue turf: We'll play them in a parking lot

San Diego State head coach Rocky Long doesn’t like the fact that Boise State plays on blue turf, but Long is done gripping about it.

Back in the spring, Long said the blue turf was an unfair advantage because it took the opponent a quarter or two to get use to the different field.

Today however, Long told the San Diego Union Tribune, “To me it’s no big deal. They can play in whatever they want to play in. We’ll play them in the parking lot if they want to play in the parking lot. It’s not near as big of a deal as we want to make it out to be.”

In case you missed the funny exchange between Chris Petersen and Dan Patrick, we recommend watching it. As you probably know by now, Boise State will not be allowed to wear all blue uniforms at home this year during Mountain West Conference games.

Long actually commented on that as well. He said, “You don’t see them near as well when it’s blue (uniforms). When you break down film, you can tell.”

Alright. It’s over. No more, blue on blue on the blue turf talk.

By the way, Boise State -19 over San Diego State in the parking lot. Who ya got?
