NC State Coach Accuses BC of Tampering With Field

N.C. State head coach Chuck Amato is complaining that his team lost to Boston College this past weekend in part to the fact that BC allegedly "watered the field down," thus causing his players to unfairly slip and slide.

Amato pointed to a number of times when his players forgot to put one foot in front of the other as evidence of a wet field, and wondered aloud if BC waters the FieldTurf at Alumni Stadium to make it look better on television.

Boston College athletics spokesman Chris Cameron assured that BC did nothing different for this game, noting that part of the field was watered for about five minutes during a Saturday morning, as per standard practice.

Cameron went on to say "I might point out that we played on the same field."

UPDATE: Unofficial N.C. State sources have looked into the matter and confirmed that BC did nothing out of the ordinary.
