Time-Lapse Video of Ohio U. Center-Court Being Repainted

Via a discussion board at BobcatAttack.com, an Ohio University fan site, here's a time-lapse video of the school's basketball arena (the Convocation Center or "Convo") getting a new center-court floor design. I'm surprised the new logo was painted directly over the old one, without the old one being removed more thoroughly. One participant on the aforementioned discussion board suggested it might be a cost-saving measure, as a comprehensive refinishing of the court presumably would have been more expensive.

  1. Very cool. I wonder if that's why more courts are using big logs in the center-- they are just covering up an old logo, rather than redoing the whole floor. As a side note, I really like the unintentional look at 1:42 of the time-lapse video. The OHIO and mascot are transparent, and you can see the state behind the outline. Kind of busy, but kind of cool at the same time.
