    Teams are more penalized when the wear black too.

    Personally I love the look of the Buffs black jerseys, but it's always been in the back on my mind. But I'm sure this is well known among coaches and refs now. Maybe awareness has fixed the issue since these studies were published.

    I like it except for the solid black paint area. Would look nicer if they had the black/woodgrain in there as well I think.

    Not as hideous as I expected, so I guess that's good.

    Like when you wake up expecting to see a 400 pound 1/10, but it's a 250 pound 2/10. Great.

    What is up with intermingling the black seats with the yellow seats (not racist)?

    And why do more the yellow seats get to be up front near the action(still not racist)?

    I think its because they are smaller so you can see over them, plus they make you hungry faster for some unknown reason, so you buy more consessions.

    I think a CU court where the area inside the 3-point line is black, but the lane, and the rest of the court are left unpainted would look pretty great.

    How many times were you dropped on your head as a child, more or less than 10?

    I think it's designed to create an optical illusion that makes the arena look more full than it actually is when games are not sold out...

    Surprisingly there average attendance is 9200. For a 10000 seat arena that pretty good. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1372125452.386195.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1372125460.231656.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1372125468.131327.jpg

    You don't think that would look good in black?

    That's because it's not even the right shade of purple. It's like they needed another coat.
