    Meh... fancy lighting, loud pop-music, "Lets-Get-Ready-To-Rrrrrrumble!!!" introductions are exactly what Butler should not do. It's a circus. It ain't true ball. What the Fukk? This is INDIANA, people! (also, get off my lawn).

    Reminds me of the Lombardi quote on having class:

    "When you get into the end-zone act like you've been there before."

    I'll admit to being neutral on this topic, but even some HSs are doing similar things in regards to introductions. The hoopla seems to be trending in this way with the NBA and college teams, but in the end it is simply a basketball game. I have no idea if it enhances the experience for fans but the players seem to like it? I do think LEDs will prove a wise investment for BU.

    I know it's hard for those of us who grind our teeth at night reliving missed opportunities in the game - but there are a lot of people who don't care about the game, that pomp and circus-like stuff gives those folks something to look at, and in many cases enjoy - I think halftime at the superbowl is a good exanple of how you grow the fan base. I don't care for it, but it's not an issue with me.

    Americans have this insatiable appetite to be awed and entertained.

    I have no idea why it took them so long to do this, but we're in the right place now. Yay.

    Innovation and promoting are not strong suits with Butler athletics.

    I may be wrong but I was told Hinkle got new LED lights that will allow for a similar light display seen at Georgia’s football stadium Saturday night where everything turned red. Would make for awesome introductions/runout if true

    No idea on light display but was told by Aaron that he really likes the new brighter lights over the court area. It is noticeably brighter in person.

    Gotcha. Would love to see a vamped up Hinkle though. Idc what the old timers have to say, high school/college kids love it and it would help increase the crowd intensity

    The savings and longevity of LED lighting will payoff regardless. It will give BU more options whether popular or not.

    The cooler-toned LED court lighting was sorely needed, and I'm surprised it wasn't in the big first phase of the renovation (along with the scoreboard, etc). In person it's never been an issue – the warm wood glow was almost charming – but for TV and photo it was awful. Happy to see they've completed that.

    Roughly about 50% were LEDs prior to this latest renovation. Not sure why all were not converted over during the major overhaul earlier? I can only speculate it was a cost factor or simply an oversight? I have no knowledge whether integrated track lights were installed or not.

    Someone told me over the weekend that they saw a video on someone else’s Snapchat story of these “integrated track” lights at Hinkle. Sounded like they were able to do what IrishDawghouse alluded to earlier.

    Yes—track lighting added for the court area in addition to hanging lights elsewhere which have been moved up higher.
