Many have seen this before but...thoughts? Ironic seeing the First National Bank logos on the floor in arena named Pinnacle Bank Arena. Safe to say Nebraska will be "money" from the floor for years to come....

I am not playing on it, so I guess for me, I am not concerned with the floor, rather the product that will be on that floor.

That picture and the smarta$$ in me made me think of this quote from Zoolander

 

Derek Zoolander: How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read if they can't even fit inside the building?

 

How can we play the game on such a small court? <_<

Not a huge fan of the massive "N" but otherwise, I don't have a problem with it.

Oh, for Pete's sake, can we get MORE advertising on the playing surface, please?

 

:rolleyes:

 

Also, I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of the curved lines out of bounds.  To my eye, every rendering I've seen that red/white border makes the sidelines not look straight.  I'm gonna reserve judgement until I see it in person or on TV though.

 

Oh well, it could be worse I suppose.

maybe we can get corporate sponsorship for free throws? that'll at least keep the court from getting cluttered up. "This brick brought to you by..."

We should replace the N with a giant swoosh at half court.  That'll REALLY get the recruits' attention.  We'll be swimming in 8-star guys in no time.

I've always hated courts that didn't have paint in, well, the paint. Kinda boring. I like the border around the court, though.

Need to make the N a little smaller.  Or even more preferably....the state outline.

Just so we don't make it like Oregon's floor.  That just plain makes me dizzy!

We should paint the under the basket out of bounds like the raptors. That thing also fools my eyes.

Loved the state outline with the star over Lincoln in the early 90's...

I do believe the court is sponsored by First National Bank of Omaha, while the whole building is known as Pinnacle Bank Arena... Perhaps the restrooms could be referred to as Bank of the West (or waste).  :wub:

Yes!  Bring back the state outline.  The N is ridiculous and looks stupid.  I liked the last court...looked classy.

 

Could go with the paint being red and the foul line area being white.  I've seen it was like that at the Colosseum.

 

This court looks like a phone with a Husker skin looking at the basketball court.

I'm just worried that the players will get confused and mistake the real court for the practice facility.

Got lost along the way, I guess. Finally made it back... seriously, it's good to be back posting once again in the Tim Miles B1G era.  On a personal note: I had to cut back on something as family-time with little ones has taken precedence the past couple years. Still does, but I'd like to be around a little bit more to post a bit more often.  :D

If you compare the rendering above to what is in the Hendricks, you'll notice some subtle differences:

 

6243773262_2bb1bae522_b.jpg

 

Namely:

1)  The absence of the Bus Whitehead Court and signature, replaced by FNBO advertising - Adv. Hendricks, no advertising is preferable

2)  The three point lines and the key are painted with white lines instead of red - Push

3)  The N includes a white stripe between the red body and red outline, clear in the render - Push

4)  The N appears much, much larger in the rendering than at Hendricks - Adv. Hendricks (caveat, the rendering may not be exactly to scale, it somehow appears off to me)

 

Overall, I find the Hendricks court much MUCH preferable to the one in the rendering.  I would have hoped they would be identical.  Then again, it's probably not enough to be upset about.  I didn't like the court back when it had the state outline and script huskers on it either and it didn't bother me all that much.
