The Blue is Still Second to None

What started as a gimmick in 1986 is now the single most recognizable symbol of the Boise St. Broncos The Blue, it's signature blue turf field at Bronco Stadium, is now in it's 23rd year.  As the body count of opposing teams continues to rise, so do the myths surrounding it.

But lately, other programs from across the country have tried to cash in on some of Boise State's success.  Or to be more exact, The Blue's success.  Not only is there a blue field for a high school team in Alaska, Texas, and New Mexico (thank you Brian Urlacher, you went to a MWC school not Boise State, you hack), there is also a new college football team in Connecticut with one.

What really irks me is that none of these teams can come up with a new color?  Why not be the first to have yellow turf, or red turf, or brown turf, or purple turf, or black turf.  Why isn't Boise State's team of lawyers all over these people?  Fred Meyer wasn't as blatant a rip-off as these places are.

What do you guys think?  Is it sheer flattery or blatant rip off?
