New Gary Williams Court Photos Feature No Terraprint, Lots of Terrafont

The rumors of a design overhaul of Gary Williams Court were confirmed a few months ago, when Pe'Shon Howard tweeted about the court's new look. But what that new look was ... well, we were left to guess. Would the old logos be staying? New Terrafont everything? SHELLMET-ESQUE TURTLE PRINT OVERLAY? Possibilities abounded.

Well, thanks to Alex Steckroth (@asteckterp; go give him a follow), we now do know what the court will look like - and, thankfully, Terraprint is nowhere to be found. Terrafont, though, is everywhere, including replacing the classy "Flag M" logo at midcourt. The athletic department is officially going all in with this new Terrafont/squished-flag "Maryland" look, it looks like.

Two more looks post-jump, again via @asteckterp.

I wasn't sold initially, but after looking it over a bit more, I'm okay with the changes. The old court needed a bit of an overhaul, and the updates seem minor and tasteful. Nothing overly ambitious going on. The Terrafont on the baselines is perfect and nice for branding, but the question people will have is about replacing the iconic old center court logo with the news squashed-flag look that Maryland's pushing hard.

It's not a terrible looking logo, and with Maryland sticking it everywhere, it'll certainly be recognizable as Maryland instantly. (Not least because it actually says Maryland.) I suppose that's okay, though perhaps the new Terrafont flag M would've been a nice comprimise.

Now, if we could just get Gary to update his signature to anything that doesn't look like "Gay Williams."
