Boise Still Considering Blue on Blue?

Waaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

According to Spitpurple, Chris Petersen was on the Dan Patrick show this morning and basically came out and said that Boise will still consider wearing blue on blue for their home game against TCU depending on what the penalties for doing so are. In response to Petersen being a crybaby on a nationally syndicated radio station, apparently the MWC has added it to their agenda today to discuss what the punishment would be for Boise wearing blue on blue.

Man, you wanna talk about a bunch of little crybabies. You really can't just let it go, coach? Shouldn't you be more worried about Georgia in Atlanta instead of figuring out how your band of Smurfs are going to try and skate around the rules and play dress up against TCU? Is it THAT important that you get to wear blue on blue? Are you gonna cry like a fat chick without a prom date all season until you get your way? Seriously, you're a grown up. This sounds like something a 9 year old does when he doesn't get the birthday present he wanted. I'm surprised you aren't just threatening to completely take your ball and go home and not play any MWC home games unless you get your way. This is more embarrassing for you than anything. IT'S JUST A FREAKING JERSEY! Get over it.

I remember USC doing this a couple years back against UCLA because USC wanted to wear their home jerseys, and I remember they had to forfeit a timeout at each half. If you want to do that and lose a timeout per half against TCU, be my guest because those will probably be pretty valuable. We aren't UCLA, and you aren't pre-probation USC. Or maybe we should just return the favor by showing up in our Rose Bowl jerseys, or just white T-shirts that say "Thanks Kyle Brotzman" on the front of them, or maybe just wear Nevada's jerseys. I'm sure that would only cost us a timeout as well, since we are breaking the same jersey rule you choose to break.

If you wanna wear blue that bad that you have to go crying like a bitch to Dan Patrick, then go right ahead, or you could be adults about things and let it go, move on, and game plan for Georgia. This makes you come off as petty, trashy, and tacky, much like having a blue turf field with a track around it. So really, what were we to expect from you?

What little bitches. That said. Patterson would never sacrifice 2 timeouts because he wanted his team to look pretty.

It may or may not give a competitive advantage to make every piece of your uniform the exact color of your field, but it's starting to seem like they either think or know it does.

You're exactly right. If they really didn't think it was an advantage, they wouldn't be so up in arms about the whole thing. Nobody said they cant wear their team colors, they just can't wear ALL blue. Wear a blue top and some orange pants. The fun part is that it's clearly in their heads now and messing with their psyche, and we already know they have a fragile kicker.

I remember when USC wore its home uniforms at UCLA and was punished by losing a timeout at the start of each half, the Bruins, being the idiots they are, intentionally wasted a timeout to even the playing field. I propose something a little more fun. If they want to break the rules and wear their all blues, maybe our equipment staff will just "accidentally" pack the purples or blacks rather than the away whites.

I think you're making way too much of this. The same point could just as easily made to you, "Its just a freakin' jersey..." At the end of the day, its not that big a deal, anyway. Personally, I think having a contrast of field vs uniform is MUCH nicer looking, but if BSU likes it, I certainly don't care. Maybe there is some big tradition or something. I'll have to check up on why the NCAA is doing this - what their reasoning was in this particular case.

Really enjoy the site, btw. Have recommended it to a number of TCU friends. A nice, appreciated resource!

I do believe it is a competitive advantage, maybe not a big one, but I can see a QB having a tougher time spotting defenders out of the corner of his eye, and I praise the MWC for making the rule.

What's the penalty for intentionally snapping Kellen Moore's leg like a pencil?

Beecherl-

Coaches have stated that there is absolutely a competetive advantage. not as much DURING the game, but by reviewing film. When trying to watch film on boise to game plan it is extremely difficult to keep track of what their players are doing during each play.

I believe petersen himself has even said this much

Blount didn't seem to have much trouble finding this smiling douche with his camouflaged blue on blue. Or maybe he was just honed in on his pearly whites.
