    No Big XII logo on the floor

    I thought we had one in year's past? Maybe it's because they're anticipating the logo to change or something.

    Pretty sure they left it off the new floor because of that reason...

    Since it takes all of a day or so to strip, paint and rewax, that doesn't really make sense.

    Why pay to have it done once, pay to remove it, then pay to have it done again?

    Re: No Big XII logo on the floor

    Why did they use gold for the men's 3 point line again? That is so hard to see on a light wood floor. Is there a rule against going double cardinal?

    Well, the new logo won't be put on for another year. That's a long time without a conference logo.

    They will still have to sand, paint, and reseal. This way though they can go a couple years with it as it currently is.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Yes, they have to be 2 different colors.

    The new floor is everything but light, and the line is easy to see on the floor, which is where the people who need to see it are.

    Obviously it's not the issue for the players on the floor as you're making it out to be - otherwise they wouldn't paint it that color.

    Our ability to see the line on TV probably isn't the biggest priority when it comes to the color of the 3-pt line.

    I don't know... With all of the "refs" we have sitting at home watching the game on tv, we need to be able to see that line easily. ;)
