Crazy new floor for Oregon
This seems like it would be distracting to play on, no?


In addition to the most uniform combinations and the most luxurious locker rooms of any school in the nation, Oregon will soon be able to lay claim to the country's most original basketball floor.

Oregon officials unveiled the floor of newly built Matthew Knight Arena on Friday, and to say the least the design lives up to the school's reputation for cutting-edge panache and flair. The court is framed on all sides by a forest of fir trees, an homage to the school's picturesque Pacific Northwest setting and to Oregon's 1939 national title team nicknamed "The Tall Firs."

Kilkenny Floor is named after Pat Kilkenny, a long-time supporter of Oregon athletics who served as the school's athletic director from 2007 to 2009 and ran the recent coaching search to replace Ernie Kent. In the center of the floor is the slogan "Deep in the Woods," which is meant to intimidate opposing teams. (Yes, seriously)


Oregon's crazy new basketball floor is quintessentially Oregon - The Dagger - NCAAB - Yahoo! Sports

I couldn't play on that floor.

It's basketball, you are usually looking up. You land on the floor it hurts. A floor is just a floor, but I'm sure the NCAA will lighten the brush strokes up a bit before competition.
