    I like that the red will be darker. Interesting that the lanes won't be filled in, I don't think anybody in this thread has done that in their designs. Personally I would like to see the state of Iowa shape along with the I-State logo at center court but I'd like it to be very subtle. So much so that you might not even notice it at first glance. I also like incorporating Hilton Magic somewhere but if they are going for a clean/retro look I don't think that will happen.

    Put Hilton Magic on one of the baselines.

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    I like the retro look for basketball courts. I think our basketball court looked good in the early to mid 90s.

    I hate over-sized logos on basketball courts. Prefer small centered logos. I do like the conference logo just below the free throw line. Not sure how that would play with an unpainted lane. I assume it would be all red paint for the lines. I like light wood color instead of a medium/dark stain, but not white either.

    But you old fogey's need to realize, looking cool is actually a big deal to young people. Something to get more pumped up about, new jerseys, cool court designs, everything.
    Looking cool is overrated, and that court above is awful. There's something to be said for timeless, classic style; not flash-in-the-pan, whatever is "in" at the moment. I'd like to see less changes in the court, uniforms, logos, etc. Too many changes are why we're stuck with so many different ISU logos on everything.


    "I watch the Cyclone players and they look like guys who grew up fighting for everything they got, on and off the court. In a word, men. I look at the Iowa players and I assume when they were kids they played soccer in leagues that didn't keep score to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. There is not one single leader on this team. It's a group of high school friends playing a pickup game at the YMCA and maybe they will keep score, maybe not, because they are just happy to be there."

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    Honestly, I'd be just fine if they kept the court the same as it is, but I wouldn't be opposed to making the red paint darker.

    Red paint definitely needs to be darker.

    Would probably just keep it the way it is. And I would let Hoiberg decide when he wants to add "Coach Hoiberg Court" Kind of how Duke has it on their court. (In other words once the NBA is completely removed as a possibility)

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    I love the idea of having Hilton Magic on the baseline or sideline.

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    I (probably) wouldn't have failed 4th grade if every court had their state outline on it.

    I didn't see this anywhere, but I like it, especially with the new XII logo.

    At first the Iowa outline made the court a little busy. But now, I kind have grown fond of it and as our BB gains recognition maybe we can educate the world that we are not these two:
