This afternoon, the folks at Rupp Television gave fans a sneak peek at the floor, which has been sanded and repainted with a new design that will be unveiled at Big Blue Madness on October 14. From the looks of it, the new (crooked) UK logo will be a midcourt, and the sidelines and endzones will feature a more subtle version of the checkerboard pattern featured on the new uniforms: screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-3-00-44-pm When all is said and done, I have a feeling the new court will resemble the court at Memorial Coliseum, which was updated with the new logo and checkerboard last year: Thoughts?
