Eh. I liked the big red state of Ohio in the center and the Buckeye leaves in the key.

I love that look... Went to my first OSU basketball game when I was 5 in old St. John Arena... Maybe for the game with I believe Cleveland State in St. John Arena... They will do it.  That would be awesome.

Yup. Me too. Gotta rock the big Buckeye Leaf. I wonder why they didn't

I like it... although I am a little disappointed that a Buckeye leaf didn't make the final product (In bounds... yes, I see it on the boundaries)

I agree completely!  Nudge, nudge, wink, wink

Haha. I just showed that picture of the side by side leaves to coworkers to help educate them. They don’t know anything out in SoCal

Nice looking hardwood for a team expected to finish 8th in the B1G...

At least they'll look good doing it. Go BasketBucks!!

So they picked the most boring actual floor. No buckeye leafs?

Still nice and good and new but....really woulda liked some buckeye leaf love.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I Believe In Ohio State.

I think the Buckeye leaf inside the 3 point line looks good. Wish it would've been included in the final design. Still a good look though.

It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.

I'm right there with you. It would have added a little understated flare to it.

Works for me.  Wish they kept the /12 scarlet, 1/2 gray trim, like the top left design.  But all good.

In others words... We let you think you had input, but basically had our minds made up...

Go Bucks!

It reminds me of when the two high schools in our district consolidated about 30 years ago and the school board declared that a vote among future students (grades 1-8) would determine the new colors and team name and heavily publicized the democratic process. The original colors were royal blue and old gold and black and red. The original names were the Warriors and the Indians. Well...blue and black won in a landslide along with the name Chiefs (over Wildcats, Arrows, and something else I can't remember). The board then selected red and gold (really yellow) with the name Redskins. Go figure. It was an early civics lesson for a couple thousand youngsters.

I think the leaf not being the center court circle is a huge opportunity missed. It has seemed like such an obvious choice for so long to me, I can't believe it hasn't ever happened.

Where are the marketing students?  I agree, that was a miss.   

Also, the Outline image of the State  at center court is way to subtle unless the light is just bad in the video.  There is almost no contrast with the overall floor.   It is certainly more distinct in the picture than how  it appears in the video.

I actually like the old design better, as B1G is de-emphasized and the 3 point line is clearer (in red). Also, the red "Ohio State" and "Buckeyes" end zones look like they do in the Horseshoe.

You would think one of the "Value City" logos would be upside down so no one would read it upside down. 

HS

None of the Schottenstein family sits on that side of the court, so they never noticed, or considered that issue, until now.

Way to go.

HS

If I'm not mistaken, the B1G logos at the Shoe also are oriented that way, i.e. toward the TV cameras.

Scarlet lanes would've looked cool, like back in St. John.

Maybe with a grey key to top it off literally.

Boring. Same a the other floor with slight changes.

I like it except for the logo....a clean Block O would have been perfection.
