Many Big 12 Conference schools have the league logo painted on their basketball floors. Why doesn't Kansas?
"We've talked about it, but we didn't think it was necessary," said Doug Vance, KU's associate athletic director for communications. "It's not mandatory. It's a school's choice."
Vance said there had been some discussion about placing the Big 12 logo at the base of each basket standard in Allen Fieldhouse, but that's as far as it went.
The Big 12 logo also is absent from the football field at Memorial Stadium. The conference logo is emblazoned, however, on the cover of one of the track jump pits at the stadium.
