    Cyclone Stadium name change?

    Amidst the treachery yesterday, I learned at the tailgate that supposedly a donor came forward with a large offering to the tune of 25 mil. for the rights to the stadium name.

    Thus making the name, Jack Trice Field at XXXXXXX Stadium. I'm leaving off the name for pivacy and the fact that this may not be completely true, but I have no reason to believe otherwise.

    Anyone else heard anything of this nature? JP wold be hard pressed to pass that by, will the way the season has gone, and the fact that that dollar amount would nearly pay for all the propsed changes to the football stadium.

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    I'll believe it when I see it. Right now there are so many rumors going around, it's hard to believe anything. I'm not doubting you, but I'll feel more comfortable if it were to be "officially announced".
    But boy, do I hope it's true!

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    Is it a company like pepsi or something? I can just see it now "JACK TRICE FIELD AT DUFF BEER, KRUSTYBURGER, BUZZ COLA, COSTINGTON'S DEPARTMENT STORE, KWIK-E-MART, STUPID FLANDERS STADIUM"

    Does the company/donors name have anything to do with s#$#%^ football? That would make sense.

    It would just become the last name of the donor from what I gathered.

    I heard the same thing yesterday. It is not a company, an individual.

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    Thats much better then. If its just a donor and not a company then I hope we do it. I don't want to sell out like a lot of schools are doing now. For example Papa Johns Stadium at louisville. Even some big high schools in Texas, Florida, and California are doing it. Not to mention about every stadium in major league baseball.

    Well Texas, Florida, and Cal don't have to do it their athletic dept. has more money than they know what to do with. If this was offered you take it in a heartbeat and don't look back.

    Getting that type of money for the stadium changes would take a lot of pressure off of JP

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    I don't care what the name of the stadium as long as the facility gets upgraded. Is the plan only to spend 25 million on the football facility? That seems a little low for how much work we could do to it. This would be good news IFFFF TRUE. Hope so.

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    I wonder what is the possibility of some sort of domino effect occuring here, with maybe other donors seeing this and following suit. Of course, that would only be IF there is any truth to it at all.

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    I really don't see a problem with it. As long as Jack Trice is still incorporated somehow, such as Jack Trice Field. That would be a good chunk of the 135 million that JP is trying to raise.

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    My guess would be the Bergstrom family as the donor if this is true

    Re: Cyclone Stadium name change?

    First - who knows if this is true - tons of rumors about everything floating out of Ames.

    Second - Jamie stated many times when speaking of the Master Plan, that naming rights to both JTS and Hilton would not be sold.

    He stated he's open to naming rights of some of the new facilities - but not the two "homes" of the Cyclones.

    He is, of course - entitled to change his mind.
