“Horseshoe Prints” Rankle SchianoDecember 4th, 2012
“Hoofs on the line!”
Greg Schiano probably wanted to scream that at the ridiculous horse running around the chewed up field at Mile High on Sunday. Actually, it probably would have been “hoofs behind the line.”
The leader of the New Schiano Order explained on The Greg Schiano Show on WDAE-AM 620 last night.
TJ Rives: The lady riding the horse around throughout the game, it’s unique to Denver. Did you give that a second thought? She was on the field pregame riding the horse around. She’s on the field in between plays riding the horse around. It’s not every day you have a horse running around on the field in the field.
Greg Schiano: I don’t mind the horse. What I do mind though is the horseshoe prints all up and down the field. The field had two high school football games played on it the night before, and certainly the last thing that field needed was a horse runnin’ up and down it. So, did I say anything? No. That’s their home field; that’s part of the home field advantage. But probably not the best thing for field conditions.
Schiano showed great restraint in not pushing game officials to corral the famed Broncos horse lady. The backlash from corralling the Broncos mascot might have rivaled the hype from kneelgate at the Meadowlands. Schiano is well aware of how the pesky media operates.
