We knew the court at the KFC Yum! Center would look a little different this season. If nothing else, there would be an ACC logo somewhere. It turns out that isn’t the only change! Looking at this tweet sent out by 84WHAS, it looks like the Cardinal logo at mid-court will just be the head, and not the version with the wing. Personally, I love it!
