    maybe just pour acid on it like Oregon and refuse to do repairs. If we had that duckish bleached tie dyed look , at least one of the shades might come out looking like gold ...

    If you compare the shade of the Tech uniforms it is obvious the court gold is much too green. The gold of our uniforms would be much more attractive. Converting to the proper gold should be a good off season project.

    Hideous.

    Need to email TStan and tell him to get our money back from the painter.

    Then hire back the old painter from Russell. He did a great job last year.

    That's the angle, light reflection maybe the camera. Not like that in person. It's just as fugly in person as on tv.

    Court looked fine on every TV in both bars during the Louisville game while I was traveling out of state. Court looks great in person too.
    I keep thinking this thread will go away, but since the game tonight wasn't fun to watch, I guess y'all should be able to whine about your TV or cable company.

    Perhaps your eyesight is not so good? Seen it in person & tv. It's horrid.

    STH. Been to every game save one this season. I can vouch for that.

    Diarrhea green, also don’t get why the Lettering on the baseline is white and gold and the center logo has a Navy Outline.

    I vote for blaming Adidas for the court, and while we are at it, can we get Jose some Nike's so maybe he will quit slipping and sliding all over the court, and maybe in a high top version so he will quit spraining his ankles all the time.

    My seat is on the front row. Go to more games...or better yet, stay here and whine. I'm done with this garbage.

    Good for you. Been to all the games I've been able to attend. Have seen the court from seats in multiple areas. Except, excuse me the front row, it must be that front row seat.... The court looked better last year.

    Gosh that must be it. Fifth-row season tickets must provide a horrid viewing angle...or maybe it’s that one game I missed over the holidays, when family plans conflicted (fwiw, we still made sure someone in gold was in our seats).

    I get the AA’s purpose in the color change. I just don’t think they (or Adidas) anticipated that natural wood tones in contrast would make our “Tech Gold” look off-greenish. It’s not a big deal to me at all. But when you realize that this was done as part of a branding strategy, you have to acknowledge that if a large number of people think our court looks greenish, it is a branding “fail”. I have every confidence, though, that ADTS is aware of this and will address the issue in the off-season.
