    Isn't it Time

    Time to name the court at Hilton Johnny Orr court, Johnny brought back basketball to ISU, and Hilton Magic became a way of ISU basketball. Anyone who follwed ISU then loved him and he always did the best for this University , think about this and lend your support

    I agree. I think it should be Johnny Orr Court or something along those lines.

    Agreed. We need his name on the court.

    Also...the road that separates the parking and Hilton....needs to be called Johnny Orr Way or Drive. I don't even recall what it is called now.

    Someone in the AD needs to get this done.

    I'm all for a statue of Johnny, outside.

    BEFORE he dies, so he knows how we love him.

    Naming rights to the court in Hilton Coliseum could bring in quite a bit of money. The Statue idea may be a better way to go

    Re: Isn't it Time

    I think something should be done for Johnny and I'm still not happy that something more than just a banner in Hilton recognizes Pete Taylor too. Naming the press box at Jack Trice after Pete is long over due in my opinion. That man was the voice of the Cyclones for 33 years and I think is 1 guy that no one will ever be as loved as a broadcaster like we did Pete. Nothing against John Walters, he does a great job and was a perfect replacement but even he or anyone after him will never wind up with the legacy that Pete left and I think it's a shame that only a banner in Hilton honors him.

    At Iowa State we prefer not to honor anyone until they die...

    Re: Isn't it Time

    When you start naming things after people, you can't take it off and sell those naming rights. This is about making money, we will need to find some other way of honoring the individuals who have done so much for ISU.

    How about both? I don't care about the money. How about a statue of Johnny doing his "here's Johnny" fist pump? That would be awesome!

    You might not care about the money. But the AD does, Jamie has his facility plans and other ideas about what we need to be competitive and if he can't sell naming rights to things it makes it harder to get the large donations.

    I realize that naming rights mean big money. However, I think that you have about a billion things that you could be doing in Hilton if you think creatively. I'm not saying I expect Jamie to do this, but from a personal standpoint, some things are worth more than money.

    I gotta agree with naming rights on this one. A bronze Johnny Orr standing outside Hilton would be great!

    QTF I would be ****** if I saw Hilton or Jack Trice renamed for money.

    Sadly, I will likely find myself ****** at some point, as I don't have the coin to compete with companies that pay for stuff like that... but I do think it would be a travesty to have those buildings renamed for the sake of money

    You won't see Hilton or Jack Trice Renamed, I don't think. What you may see is John Deer Court at Hilton Coliseum or Hooters Field at Jack Trice Stadium.

    Those are things that aren't named at this point but still could be.
