    I like it.  The other was very dated.

    Anybody have a picture of the floor when it had the realistic painting of the Miami tribe member at center court?

    If it is the one I'm thinking of, that would have been during my time - 1988-1992 - and it was only in place for a short time because it wasn't "realistic" in the sense that it depicted a guy wearing a full headdress, and the Miamis wear (at most) two ... or so I was told.  When the mistake was discovered they refinished the floor.  As I recall, it was only on the floor for a couple of weeks. (Its been quite a while ... I'm not entirely sure about the details on this.)

    Unless a new floor was needed, this is a complete waste of money. Aesthetically, the old floor was fine. Lipstick on a pig...

    I like it. It even includes the newly stylized symbol based on traditional Miami ribbon work.

    Old floor was not good at all. VERY much needed to be replaced!

    At least our Ohio state institution no longer has the state of Tennessee on our basketball court.

    Second only to allowing our head football coach to manage the calling of timeouts.

    Was there ever an explanation as to what that actually was?

    I believe it was intended to be a tear. For a year or two the torn paper look was part of the branding look. Although the reference that it looks like the state of Tennessee is hilarious.

  • Bash_RiprockBash_Riprock Wealthy Alum
    Ha, I never really noticed, but now that Alex mentions it it does look like the state of Tennessee, or possibly North Carolina.

    It looks like Tennessee flipped over.

    And yes, it was supposed to be a “tear” in the floor.

    It looks like Tennessee flipped over. 

    Butch Jones has fallen.  And he can't get up.

    Shed a tear...or Rip Torn....or was it a trap laid by John Cooper seeking to "protect this wood?" Will we ever know for sure? I'd vote for the Vols.

    That's definitely what it was supposed to be. It also looked
    absolutely nothing like a tear in the court

    Always had the same thought.

    Relieved it doesn’t say Boiler Up.

    Why do you think Ryne Smith quit?

    I'm speculating here but I'm thinking Ryne didn't like the new floor renderings....wanted something with a Boilermaker on it.

    Not at all important but it’s time for the black in our branding to go. Our colors are red and white. Our brand looks sad and tired, like the football and basketball programs.

    How about the silver? Maybe the "Powers That Be" are aiming to switch totally over to Silver and Black and adopt the attitude of the former Oakland Raiders, the attitude adoption being the toughest part of the changeover.

    If we adopt the color of silver it would more likely be in tribute to our aging fan base.
