    New Court being installed

    Just saw this posted on cyclones.com. It's a time lapse video of the new basketball court being installed in Hilton. I'm getting so excited for basketball season to start. Ya, I don't know how to embed the video, so here is the link. Time Lapse Video: Installing New Hilton Floor - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    And yes the Pioneer logo is still there.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    We still have the yellow men's 3-point line? Don't like that.

    Gotta love government work. The guys in the green vests spend more time standing around than working, while the guys in the orange vests do all the lifting.

    No wonder it took them so long. A floor like that should be done in about 30-45 minutes.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Home Depot would have had their laminated floor down in about two hours.

    But no Big 12 logos anywhere are on the court.

    No need to do that until the new one is unveiled.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing. I was trying to figure out how long they were standing there:
    From time 1:23 to 1:37=14 seconds (on time lapse). The video was ~2.5 min long and it took "just over four hours" to install the floor so I'll assume ~4 hrs.

    [ 4 hrs ] [ x hrs ]
    ------- = ----------
    [2.5 min] [ .233 min (=14 seconds)]

    So they were standing there for .3733 hours which equals 22 min and 24 seconds. Not that terrible I guess, but it was only a 4 hour long job too.

    All I ask is when it is shaped like the state of texas, we make sure to put the orange horns upside down.

    I'm guessing you aren't an engineer? See, they pay us the big money because we learned in school to hire people to do the lifting for us.

    I hope those carts fit in the elevator so next time they can take it upstairs and put it in the concourse before the flood!
