Blame Boise State’s smurf turf if you must, but for some reason there has been a recent trend in collegiate athletics where traditional is not good enough.
Whether it is Oregon dressing up like Granny Smith apples that a kid drew on with a highlighter on Saturday, Maryland draping its state flag all over every jersey it can find or Eastern Washington using red field turf, the days of classic jerseys and regular playing surfaces are gradually becoming a thing of the past.
While it is not as guilty of a perpetrator as college football, college basketball is not innocent when it comes to these transgressions against convention.
With that in mind, here are some of the worst court designs in the recent history of college hoops. I’m sure many of you will disagree with me, so feel free to let me know in the comments.
