    ISU Athletic Stadiums Re-Name?

    What are everyone's thoughts of allowing a big name company that would pay ISU's Athletic Department good change to put their name on one or more of our stadiums?

    I am originally from Le Mars, and a small company with a well know name like Wells Blue Bunny or something like that.

    Maybe this could help us enclose the south endzone of Jack Trice?

    Maybe it is to much work

    Not fond of the idea, but everybody has their price. It'd have to be more than just bowling in the stadium. A lot more...

    Don't think so. Would rather have them bowl in the south End Zone and call it the Wells Blue Bunny Plaza or something like that, but don't touch the stadium names.

    That's not a bad idea.

    Re: ISU Athletic Stadiums Re-Name?

    I don't ever want to walk into Jack Trice Stadium, and it not be named "Jack Trice Stadium".

    I'm fine with the "AT&T Endzone at Jack Trice Stadium", or something like that.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Not unless they build us a completely new stadium.

    I could also see a company like Hy-Vee sponsoring the south end zone project, and they could get naming, vendor rights at that end, etc. when it's complete.

    Or, Iowa State Cyclones presented by Wells Blue Bunny.

    I would be all for any kind of $$ except for Jack Trice Stadium and Hilton Coliseum. We need the $$.

    Re: ISU Athletic Stadiums Re-Name?

    No way should they rename Jack Trice or Hilton, however I wouldn't be opposed to selling the naming rights to the court or the field, or like rworkman said plaza kind of things. Or if they wanted to pony up the cash to build the small sport (volleyball, wrestling, gymnastics) venue I wouldn't have a problem with it being named for them. But all our stadiums are already named for people for good reason.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    I would think a well know company owner out there had to be an alum of ISU.
