Watch CSU’s Moby Arena Hardwood Get a Fresh ‘Ram’ Makeover
On February 23, 2022, Colorado State Men's Basketball beat Mountain West rival Wyoming 61-55 at Moby Arena. Thousands of fans stormed the court after that. What great wins will the new court hold?
CSU Volleyball Head Coach Tom Hilbert is one of the winningest coaches in College Volleyball; he must be excited, as well, about Moby getting a 'freshening.' Each season sees about 15 home games for the women, 15 opportunities to show off their great court.
Colorado State had been teasing the makeover for a couple of weeks..
On April 7, 2022, the 'freshening' began:
On April 18, 2022, the Rams did their big 'reveal' for the new floor. Highlights of the project include:
- A lighter overall finish on the hardwood.
- A larger Ram head at center court.
- Dual Ram horns on either side of the Ram head that fall into the floor rather than elevate from it.
- Gold out-of-bounds lines as well as coaches box lines.
- "STALWART" added along the sideline at center court.
Of course, with change comes controversy. Not every Ram fan was that excited about the new floor:
"We liked the previous one. It was so perfect for the Rams. What a waste of money."
"We used to have the best floor in the country! Now just one of the pack! Weak sauce CSU!"
"Horns are too subtle now. They were distinct. It set us apart, just like Boise State and their blue turf."
"I liked the previous floor."
Though, others were very "pumped up" about the change:
"That looks like a floor on which the Rams can win a lot of games! Go Rams!!!"
What do you think of the new Moby Arena CSU Rams floor?
