Check Out This Cool Video of the Cinci Skyline Being Installed on the Cintas Floor

The Cintas Center's floor has been redone for the upcoming season, and it's a beauty.

When the ball goes up this year, it will be over a newly designed Cintas Center floor.

In case you missed it when it was tweeted out over the weekend or you don't have Twitter (hi Dad!), here is Xavier's official time lapse video of the redesigned Cintas Center floor - featuring the Cincinnati skyline - being laid down:

I love the tagline of "our fair city; our new floor." Not only is it an accurate description of what is going on here, but it's also a not so subtle reminder to the University of Cincinnati that Xavier is now the team in the power basketball conference and UC is the mid-major, thanks to the AAC turning into Conference USA, Part Deux.

Xavier's home season will begin with the season opener against Northern Arizona on Friday, November 14th. The Muskies' first four games will be on the Cintas Center floor before they head out to the Wooden Classic over Thanksgiving weekend. Sadly, Xavier fans will have to wait another year to "welcome" UC onto the redesigned floor, as the Shootout is at UC this year.
