Members 1 Posted April 8, 2015 The worst part is that–at least from the picture–the court doesn’t capture the “blacktop” feel the school was looking was hoping to achieve. dgthree TCutt jch Does anyone know when Morehead State is supposed to announce their new court design? Posted May 15, 2015 Share this post New court design for UK at their Women’s arena. Looks like a new UK logo at mid court and the checkerboard pattern around the outside. I’m not opposed to the checkerboard, but as someone who grew up a UT fan (now an Auburn student), I don’t think they should be using the checkerboard this much. Since it has been a staple of Tennessee athletics for years and comes from one of the buildings on campus, and Nike decided to revive/give UK the checkerboard treatment in 2008, it just doesn’t seem right.

It’s not even like it’s made of wood, but more like some sort of soft padding. Anyways, with Akron, I’m with everyone else, I’d much rather them have an “A” logo instead of a “Z” logo, but I understand why they did it. There’s not a ton of “Z” teams out there. I do like the kangaroo in the lane though, it is unique and just different enough for me to like it. Could’ve been a lot worse.I’ve always liked the Z better. The A logo isn’t terrible, but most people don’t understand why their is a kangaroo (or as some say donkey/horse looking animal). It’s always felt a lot like a minor league baseball team or something. The Z is unique to college sports. Another happy accident with the Z is that it reads the same from both sides of the court. Similar to the suns center court wordmark.I could have been much worse…. Link to post Next 0 Sports Logo News 8,685 172 154 216 posts dgthree I find it annoying too.

For me, the checkerboards pattern may have been used by UT, Fresno State and Navy, but that doesn’t mean another team cannot use them. Besides UK’s purpose has nothing to do with college sports as it is based off of Secretariat’s silks. 973 Posted May 27, 2015 Sports Logo News 17,487 posts 450 962 posts altosax29b 21 Link to post Share this post 0 Billy B Sports Logos 0 2 20 Boyeeism 0 1 Location:Massillon, OH 3 Members First, on the Oakland court, it looks like something out of a middle school gym or a rec center.

Hearts manager Craig Levein has said that he is expecting further Rangers interest in Kyle Lafferty and described Rangers’ opening bid as “disappointing”.The Ibrox club made an offer of £200,000 for the Northern Ireland international and it was quickly rejected by Hearts, who said it was well short of their valuation.Comparisions were made to Rangers’ interest in Jamie Walker last summer, when a series of offers were thrown out and a deal collapsed on deadline day.“The good thing is we only have another month of this nonsense until the transfer window closes,” the Hearts boss said. “I had a long chat with him about his responsibilities as a professional and he was good. He tried like a bear when he came on. He was focused.“My focus was on the team and trying to make sure that he would be able to assist us if he came on, and he did very well.” “We had the same dealings with Rangers over Jamie Walker. So I kind of expect the same thing again.”Walker was left out of squads at the time as speculation and uncertainty affected him and Levein opted to put Lafferty on the bench for Sunday’s 5-0 League Cup win over Inverness.The striker came off the bench and Levein explained later that he felt the player has been affected by events but impressed with his contribution to the win.“As much as Kyle says it’s not having an effect, I think it probably has,” he said.
