I would be curious to see our court with a darker mid court stain and leaving the 3 point line in the same.  Kougz, could you make my curiousities come true?

Per the athletic department, the stain came out a lot darker on the court than it was on the sample piece.  They did better on the practice courts.
they got it wrong?  so like, why don't we fix it or whatever?

Good question. I'll ask Currie tomorrow at the game.

One of my all time fav courts was from the 90s at Virginia.  I can't find a picture online, but the baseline and sidelines were black, or dark blue, and it had 3 thin white "pinstripes" that went all the way around the court.  I always like it and wanted to copy it.

I think there was some push back from some dufus on here about Octowood not being awesome, but it is awesome and I hope it is a dream realized within the next 10 years (at KSU).

But the ones made on here were better, thereby making our actual one garbage.

i hate the 2 stain courts.

i always really loved the blue, state of kansas midcourt for KU during the 90's, but their current court is one of the top 5 worst ever.  the jayhawk is just an ugly rough ridin' logo.

i searched for a few minutes and couldn't find a picture of the old ku court though :(

Always wondered about the possibility that the board could falll, even at the OOD. Life would go on, I suspect. After all, CBB is a moneymaker, right? Spare no risk, they say.

The stain is probably a little dark, but ours is good. I appreciate that they included the octagon purple outline on the outside.

It's certainly an upgrade and the octagon was a nice attempt.  The biggest problem with the dark poopy color of stain is that it's visually too close to the color of the leather basketball and it's visually distracting.  As are the bush league gradient colored Brigg's logos.  It's also just a design thing, but filling the semi-circle at the top of the key with the stain also does not work. 

It's a bunch of little things that add up.  Again, good attempt, and it's much more on brand, but it could have been considerably better.

Our court is a defective product.  If there was such a thing, it'd have been re-routed to the basketball floor outlet store to be sold for 60% off.

In addition to the Oregon court that has already been in this thread a couple of times, I nominate Idaho State and Boise State.

There is.  We sell it to North Dakota State or whatever in another couple years
