Was just strolling around Bramlage
« on: October 01, 2010, 01:39:00 PM »
and talking with a friend about how badly we need a new court design/paint job. Word is they're planning on replacing the whole floor when they do it? How cool would it be though if at the first game we honor Tex Winter, maybe have a few ex-players speak and unveil his signature on the court.... Probably couldn't do this until we replace everything, but it sure would be nice to be able to do it while Tex could still possibly be there to see it. Kind of surprised there hasn't been more of a push for something like this actually, especially considering his health.

Since he bailed on us I bet they would honor someone else first.

Hopefully someone who is really powerful and intelligent will realize that our floor will be seen by millions and millions of people this year and it should probably look good.

But it's also possible that what it looks like is completely meaningless and we've already gone too far by even mentioning it.

that's like the first thing that comes up every time people talk about re-doing the floor. People really, really hate that thing.

Mainly my thoughts on the matter are, "hey, we may not have, like, the best college basketball history in the world, but there's some there ya know? Why don't we at least make some attempt to celebrate that history a bit, and class up our court a little at the same time....? at least get some goddamn banners in the joint?"
i dunno, just pissin in the wind here.

A couple of years ago there was a design out that was supposedly the new design that looked awesome. I wonder if someone on the board here might still have it...

Yeah I remember about 500 horrible one's too.

Honestly, we don't really have to do all that much. Replacing the floor will look amazing just in-and-of-itself. Keep the giant wildcat and just darken all the purple a bit so it looks awesome instead of sorta gay on tv. Remove the Kansas State and replace the Wildcats on the ends with K-STATE. Maybe put an EMAW somewhere, slap Hartman's and Tex's sigs on the court, hang some banners and BOOM, we're one step closer to the cool kids lunch table.

It seems to invoke strong feelings either way, I'll say that.

I'd be up for leaving the logo but adjusting the colors to a purple Briggs logo instead of Orange and Yellow. Less Iowa State looking. (sorry Haver)

For how much money Briggs is funneling back to Kstate their mark is inevitably going to be tied into KSU sports.  Isn't it on the new tunnel tarp too? Or is it the KansasStateCars one?
