I could care less about a logo on the field. ISU is going to need a LOT of extra income now that they have to pay players. This means corporate sponsorship, alcohol sales at stadiums, and whatever else they need to monetize

It was already allowed if part of the stadium or field name.
Exactly. This really isn't much of a difference. Many new college stadiums are named after a corporation anyway. Corporations have been part of collegiate sports for a long time now. I don't see the big deal here.

It’s not a big deal. It’s a small deal. Like the last small deal and the next small deal that won’t matter independently of each other but are slowly making it pretty silly. Does it matter? Probably not but it’s one small, annoying step at a time in a march toward whatever ridiculous future collegiate athletics are.

I’m not even old. Or hell… maybe I am!

In the grand scheme of things, ads on the field or court is fine. I'd really rather they not be on jerseys, but that's what it is going to take to keep up with the rat race.

This will only allow the big to get bigger. Corporate sponsors are likely to pay more to be on a 100K plus stadium (the SEC and Big 10 schools) than the 40K - 60K stadiums. Assuming the school will get to keep100% of the sponsorship money, it will increase the delta between the big school budgets and the not so big schools. More money to fund their NIL and under the table payments. and that much harder to keep up with the SEC and Big 10. Equality be damned in the NCAA.

To me its not that big of a change. We already look at corporate sponsor logos on basketball courts so having it on football fields and jerseys is no major change to me.

You mean Mid-American Field at Jack Trice Stadium? :)

I don't except much change there but going to a game in person will be less appealing if it means even more than TV time outs.

I mean... when has it really been equal? Equality and parity are not qualities that college football has been terribly concerned about

NEZ wall: sponsor logos (big-ass HyVee logos)
SEZ wall: name (the Sukup name is still an ad, IMO)
Field naming rights: two on-field logos and giant logo on back of video board
Ribbon board behind the band: sponsor logo
Fascia ribbon boards: ~2/3 ads
Primary video boards: ~1/3 ads
Play signal screens: sponsor logo
Press conference backdrops: rotating sponsor logos

About the only places you don't see some type of ad/sponsor right now are on the uniforms.
