I agree. But it seems we were in the minority.

I think you are.

I was fine with the skyline court. The blue court made it difficult for my eyes to adjust to play on the court.

I feel the same way about court that I feel about uniforms. I prefer simple, old school. But more important than my thoughts are the players thoughts. Whatever the players want (within reason)! Let them have input.

I LOVED the blue court. It was awesome, but it was hard to watch a game on my television.

The Skyline court was fine.

My preference is the GIANT mascot like Kansas has. Love that court. I'm not sure our logo would have the same impact.

It looks great. I’d say use the blue/ gray tiger logo instead and keep the rest.

Now, let’s do something about those end zones at the Liberty Bowl. Paint them blue with a gray “MEMPHIS” at one end and “TIGERS” in the other outlined in white.

That's the thing. I think both courts looked better in person, but neither translated to tv very well.

If the little darlings don't want to wear BLUE/GRAY -they can go somewhere else .

"have' dropped not "dropping"

Actually either can be correct in terms of language used. It depends on the whether the "dropping" is in process or is in the past. Understand in the case of the yellow tiger the change occurred a couple of years ago if that is what you are attempting to confer.

The full court camera used at the forum has to be like 480p. I'm pretty sure it barely qualifies as HD. How in the world have they not upgraded it yet.

RE: No more strange blue court
Let's think outside the box and be the first team (at any level) in the world to use an animated image at center court. I suppose it could be projected from a camera above or maybe some technology exists that embeds the GIF in the floor itself...

Here's one idea:

Could we 3D project 5 additional players on the court too? It would be terribly confusing for opponents & create a heck of a home court advantage.

Contract it out to some Chinese company. They could build it right into the floor. They did all kinds a great optical stuff for their Olympics. I'm sure the NCAA wouldn't allow though it until some Power 5 school does it first.

No need to get the brain dead POTUS and his crackhead son involved.

This whole January 6th situation is real interesting don't you think?

I'm thrilled our current POTUS won't incite a mob to storm my nation's capital in order to stop the counting of votes because he can't mentally handle that he lost. Trump lied to the American people and took the integrity of our nations election down with him, what a selfish disgusting person to be the head of the free world. It's quite embarrassing he is in the history books as one of our presidents. What a horrific mistake on behalf of our country.

Brain dead you say?

/end

Quote:the integrity of our nations election

Is this some sort of a warped joke?

ID Required
- Get on a bus or subway with monthly pass
- Get a child/senior discount at a restaurant
- Buy liquor/tobacco
- Join a gym


ID NOT Required
- Voting in a presidential election in 16 states

WHY?
Because Democrats think that black people are too stupid and/or lazy to vote in person, or produce a valid ID. The Democrat concept of "voter suppression" is easily the most racist policy in the history of US politics since 1965, which was the first year that black women were allowed to vote.

WHY?

There isn't voter fraud in states not requiring an ID... the truth is it isn't changing anything. One expert found 31 cases out of more than one billion ballots cast in the United States from 2000 to 2014... Trump tried to say there was enough to change the entire outcome of an election which is just a incredibly stupid lie.

The evidence is clear: identification requirements for voting reduce turnout among low-income and minority voters. And the particular restrictions imposed by Republican lawmakers—limiting the acceptable forms of identification, ending opportunities for student voting, reducing hours for early voting—obviously appear aimed at Democratic voters.

So not only do R's want to make it more difficult for Americans to vote they want to lie to their face and say it was a rigged election and attempt to do everything to stop it from happening regardless of false accusations.

Disgraceful and just not the morals our country was founded on. Sadly this is the reality and not a warped joke.
