TCU’s basketball court at Schollmaier Arena is getting a bit of a facelift this summer, and apparently most of twitter has never painted before.
The official account of the program tweeted this out Tuesday morning:
... and people, well, didn’t get it. The blue covering the court was simply marking the intricate scale design that has covered the court for the last several years, as repainting it is a step-by-step process, using multiple layers and colors.
But, much of twitter thought that blue was now a school color, I guess.
And just like that all of the work Jamie Dixon did to get TCU hoops back to a level of somewhat respectable was erased. Yikes. pic.twitter.com/WAWxc5b2iY— Eddie Radosevich (@Eddie_Rado) July 31, 2018

I bet it is hard to play basketball on an ice rink like that, but good luck— Kyle Tidwell (@goose1310) July 31, 2018

That might be the dumbest and ugliest thing I’ve seen, even worse than the stupid blue turf in Boise— Bobby Hamilton (@Bobbyh9700) July 31, 2018
Some of the responses were pretty funny, as was the use of gifs. But, fear not, Frog fans, nothing is changing with the court design, it was just being covered up to repaint the very complicated design that has existed since the new arena opened.
But it sure was fun to watch people freak out for no reason.
Now, if you want to talk real works of art, check out the poster design for this year’s campaign:
