Default potential crazy basketball floors in college basketball

In case Oregon's crazy new basketball floor ever becomes a trend throughout college basketball, freelance designer Jake Donahue has a few ideas on what other designs we might see.
Donahue put his enviable photoshop skills to work this week, creating eight potential new floors including a palm tree-framed court at Miami, a KFC logo-splashed court for Louisville and a Vegas-inspired court for UNLV.
A lifelong Oregon State and Gonzaga fan who grew up hating the Ducks, Donahue said his intent was to make the courts as gaudy and ugly as possible in order to parody Oregon's new orange and tan fir tree-framed floor. As a designer, he appreciates the originality of Oregon's court, but as a basketball fan he hates how distracting it is for players and TV viewers.
"I was watching a game the other day on TV from Matthew Knight Arena and thought it was the worst thing to ever happen to a televised basketball game," Donahue wrote via email. "You can't see the half-court line and the reflections from the arena's digital reader board glares horribly on the floor."
If it seems far-fetched that the colorful floors could become a trend, consider that Boise State's iconic blue football turf has inspired copycats. That Eastern Washington would install red turf last season suggests it's only a matter of time before another program takes a cue from Oregon and installs a crazy new court.
Of Donahue's eight court designs after the jump, which would he like to see actually get implemented?
"My favorite is definitely Miami just because I like palm trees, but I think the LSU version is pretty slick with the swampy plants," Donahue wrote.

UNLV is by far the best, and it's not even close.

They're way too colorful, don't know how anyone could like these. I'm all for more intricate floor designs but a bit more simple than these.. at least simple enough to clearly make out the 3 point line
