They've asked for public input on their four new basketball court designs.
OT: Help Northwestern choose a new basketball court design.
Everyone from the blog should submit a block 'M' design.
Or vote for the second one (the one with just the wildcat head), because it is most definitely the dumbest looking.
In seriousness, I like the purple on my computer screen but it would undoubtedly look terrible in person if the whole court was purple
I don't see an option to choose "other design" since all of them suck.
for a moment I thought NU was going to go the oregon route but thankfully they are all tasteful
IMO, there is nothing tasteful about the color purple (no, I'm not referring to the movie Color Purple).
Number 3 is a crime against humanity.
So, so, so much purple. It hurts my eyes.
That would be the most disturbing to look at. I can't imagine anything except a low-scoring tripfest as teams can't help but gaze into a purple abyss.
If you don't continually upvote the abomination below (Option 3), you just don't appreciate the sweet sweet taste of schadenfreude.
Ugh. Image sizing. Sorry about that.
is just awful. Did they hire a 10 year old to design that?
Don't forget if you vote #3, and it wins, you'll be forced to look at that abomination at least once a year for the rest of your life.
#4 is the most aesthetically pleasing court in my eyes.
I can take a game off of TV and listen to the radio. It's one small price to pay.
Schopenhauer just kicked himself for not writing about this when he was alive
Why would they put a z in the middle of the court?
The purple one would be the WORST. It would give them great home court because all the other teams would get headaches or blinded from that damn court. The clear thing to do is think like a basketball player, then say which court you would most want to play on. Yeah, I get t; it's Northwestern. When it comes to sports, you think they're a clown college. However, you have to consider your own team before theirs.
You should look up the word "schadenfreude" and reconsider if you're using it in the right context.
Maybe they want some additional revenue by sharing the venue with the Chicago Sky
If I had to choose, it would be design #4.
I was hoping a pair of waving white flags would be an option.
As a Northwestern graduate student, I implore you to vote for a court other than the purple monstrosity.
I actually like the Wildcat on its own without the N? Anybody agree? Voted for #3 though.
I think the Purple court is an eye sore, and hard to get used to, that said I think its an advantage for the home team.
I would vote for that, if I were a NW fan...
“Chicago’s Big Ten Team” as is tradition in Chicago remember to vote early, vote often, this means you to dead people.
As for NW being Chicago's Big Ten Team, I wouldn't be surprised in any number of Big Ten schools had more Chicagoland alums than NW.
The last I heard, EVERY Big Ten school with the exception of Penn State boasts more living alumni in the Chicagoland area than Northwestern.
This is probably also true if you count Northwestern's entire active student body among their alumni numbers...
So, LOL @ "Chicago's Big Ten Team"
If they're "Chicago's Big Ten Team" or whatever, could we at least get a Harold's Chicken and maybe a Portillo's in the concourse?
Whoever came up with these ideas has a very promising career in the interior design of dollar stores, DMV offices, and nursing home cafeterias.
Why don't they put the Chicago skyline?
Northwestern asking for public input on new court floors, but would like the to remind everyone, don’t get used to it we’re still a private school.
Where's a #4 with a plain 3-point area instead of the white. I'd vote for that. I don't like when the whole 3-point area is painted, let alone #3 where it looks like someone went crazy with the fill on MS Paint.
I vote for #2. It has the least amount of purple.
