Kansas State Wildcats (18-4)
Home-court branding matters in college hoops (just ask Tom Izzo), and K-State is faced with the question of how much it wants to officially embrace the rapidly spreading nickname for rowdy Bramlage Coliseum: "The Octagon of Doom." What started as a message-board phenomenon and a series of unofficial tees is now being mentioned on ESPN, mainstream newspapers and even Mixed Martial Arts Web sites. Wildcats coach Frank Martin seems cool with it, telling the Kansas City Star, "It's a great thing. ... That's what's special about college athletics. It makes it fun and gives your team a shtick that players take and kind of bond with along with the fans."

Why not take it a step further, then, and brand the court with something similar to the tees? Everyone's done the giant half-court team logo by now, including Kansas, so why not scrap the Wildcat and set Bramlage apart with a center-court Octagon of Doom that every potential recruit will instantly recognize on TV? Take this mock-up and get working for next season ...

I admit to fantasizing about OOD written on the court somewhere after watching New Mexico with "The Pit" printed on the base lines, but.....
:love:

Holy crap.

this.

Take out the Kansas State part.  We won't need it for people to know who we are.

I'm not sure if you went to the link or not, but this is not mine.  This excellent  mock up is available for viewing on SI.com

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - Luke Winn is good people. He understands what's happening...

Nice.  He should've asked me to do the mock up though.

And state trademark paper work has been sibmitted.  Working on Fed TM and copyright.  And drafting letters.

You should do one and send it to him. He'd probably replace it...

sd is right, but never did I image OOD blowing up like this.  Never.

Thanks ChiCat.

i wonder if _fan is still clinging to the ridiculous notion that ood branding was not the culminating accomplishment of his life.   :dunno:
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.
