BOULDER, Colo. -- If you've got $5,000, a big truck and a strong back, you can own a super-sized chunk of University of Colorado basketball memorabilia.

CU Boulder is auctioning off its portable, 16-year-old basketball court and asking for a minimum $5,000 bid.

But be forewarned: "The buyer must remove, load and transport the flooring" and it's being sold "AS IS WHERE IS with NO warranty or refunds," cautions the online auction site HigherEdSurplus.com.

The Robbins "All-Star Plus" maple basketball floor is described as being in fair-to-good shape, the auction site said. The 60-foot by 112-foot floor has been sanded and stripped down once since it was originally purchased in 1996.

Robbins boasts that more NBA arenas choose its All-Star floor than any other brand. It's motto: "Where NBA Champions Are Made."

The floor also comes with a bonus: a 48-foot by 24-foot extension.

As of Sunday, there had been no takers for the court, on which CU volleyball teams also did battle.

The auction started Friday and runs until June 15.

Let's see, 60 x 112 = 6720 square feet. The bonus part is 48 x 24 = 1152. That makes a total of 7,872 square feet of hardwood flooring. At a cost of $5,000, that comes out to only 64 cents a square foot! We just paid over $7.00 a square foot to have hardwood flooring installed in our house. Couldn't someone take all this and put it in houses for a steal?

When you say that you make it sound like a steal.....if only I had a floor in my house that was 60x112
