The problem with my repeated non-serious claims to be The Washington Post’s JMU beat writer last spring is that I now get aggrieved e-mails from fans when major JMU news breaks and I fail to respond appropriately.

By now you’ve surely seen at least the mock-up photos of the school’s new basketball court design. Well, on Thursday, the athletic department sent out photos of the real thing, along with several video clips showing the making of the court. It’s every bit as subtle and understated as the mock-ups suggested.

This wasn’t in the release, but I’m pretty sure if you scratch real hard at those giant graphics, you can actually release some scent of Duke Dog. Smells like winning. Or possibly sweaty fur.
