Tulsa Excuses: Blue Turf Advantage

25
Coach Blankenship and QB G.J. Kinne use the blue turf as an excuse to their sloppy QB play. Sure it wasn't the fact G.J. couldn't run worth a darn and is still hurting?? Until Rocky Long I hadn't heard someone who actually played on the blue turf complain about it being an unfair advantage. Head coach Bill Blankenship said Boise's all-blue uniforms made it confusing against the background of the blue turf. "The last was a bad throw. If you look at film, G.J. saw the safety roll back to the middle of the field, thought he was gone and when he threw the ball, didn't see him redirect and come back to the sideline. That's probably why they wear blue jerseys with blue helmets and blue uniforms. I think there's a reason the Mountain West (Conference) won't allow them to wear blue at home." G.J. Kinne agreed "I know there's a reason they don't get to wear 'em in (Mountain West Conference games). I've never experienced anything like that. It was definitely different."
