Concerning the Cleats


For the many of you that watched the Rose Bowl, you may remember the surprising number of TCU players that ended up face-down on the ground, without a single Wisconsin defender within 5 yards of them. The apparent cause was slipping due to the new Nike cleats TCU had been given; the same model the Ducks are sporting in the Natty. It became such a problem that ESPN commented on it several times, remarking that TCU players disliked the cleats so much that they often switched out of them during practice. When asked why they were still wearing them for their bowl game, they said they hadn't brought any other shoes.

Now, as many people pointed out in the thread that followed, Nike made a turf version and a grass version of the new Air Zoom Alpha Talon cleats, and many people reassured one another that the turf model was far superior to the grass model (which TCU was sporting) and that Ducks fans everywhere should put their minds to rest. After all, what NFL indoor football stadium would use grass for their field?

"University of Phoenix Stadium is the only indoor facility in North America to have a natural grass playing surface"

well, God dammit.
