Rupp Arena rafters getting painted blue

This is a nice touch for Kentucky Basketball games.

In the coming months and possibly years, Rupp Arena will be looking a lot different than what we've become accustomed to.

Some of the big changes set to take place in the home of college hoops' best program  include a massive center-hung scoreboard, better wireless Internet access for fans, and changes to the roof infrastructure so the arena can attract more concerts and major events.

Well, one of those changes apparently includes blue-painted rafters, according to the Rupp Arena Twitter page:

This is definitely a nice touch for home basketball games. It's unclear if this was part of the previously-approved upgrades for Rupp Arena, but it's certainly one that Kentucky Wildcats fans should enjoy.

What do you think of this new feature?
