Williams Arena Floor is getting a Facelift

Am I the only person that thinks removing an 81 year old Williams Arena floor and replacing it with a new one could be a bad omen? Why now? Tubby? Is this your doing?

If the Gopher basketball season turns sour next year – I am going to blame it on the floor…then again if it turns out well, the floor gets the credit as well.

I love that historic Williams Arena floor…I wonder if they are going to auction off any of the boards ? I would LOVE one!

I'm thinking that getting rid of anything that has the word "historic" in front of it can't be good... but this is coming from the girl who had a pair of "historic" soccer socks that never could be changed, so maybe my perspective is jaded. I never thought about selling the boards off, but what a great idea!!

Hannah - LOL! on the soccer socks! I, too, must admit I am nervous about changing the Williams Arena floor, but 81 years is a long time coming.

If you hear about them selling the boards, LET ME KNOW! I am serious - a part of the Williams Arena floor would look great in my sports themed living room.
