Before the Pacers unveil their new court design and jerseys later today, Indiana’s official Twitter account teased fans this morning with what is presumed to be a sneak peak of the team’s more modern looking aesthetic.

Graphic designer Conrad Burry then shared this rendering of a trademarked logo or emblem that he found on the United States Patent and Trademark Office that features....of all things...rows of corn.
If you feel like you’ve seen something similar to this before, it’s probably because, well, you have...right here at Indy Cornrows.

Jokes aside, if they indeed end up embracing farming over racing culture that will be sort of a strange pivot for a team called, you know, the Indiana Pacers.
