Post from thread on the football board...just shows the opportunity that is out there for "free money", that some major programs and even small ones are able to tap into today.

Here's a short list of some of the college arenas with sponsorship deals: (bolded a few that stand out. Also, some non-P5 schools have arena deals almost equal or in a few cases, much greater than what RU gets for their BCS, now P5/Big Ten Football Stadium)

Illinois: State Farm Center ($30 Million for 60 years)
Maryland: Xfinity Center ($20 Million for 25 years)
Louisville: Yum Center ($13 Million for 10 years...off-campus)
Fresno State: Save Mart Center ($40 Million for 20 years)
Ohio State: Value City Arena ($12.5 Million)
San Diego State: Viejas Arena ($6.9 Million for 10 years)
UNLV: Cox Pavilion ($5 Million: WOMEN's Basketball Arena)
Towson Univ: SECU Arena ($4.75 Million for 10 years)
Colorado: Coors Events Center ($5 Million)
College of Charleston: TD Arena ($1.6 Million total deal)
Boise State: Taco Bell Arena ($4 Million for 15 years)
Arizona State: Wells Fargo Arena ($5 Million)
UCF: CFE Arena ($3.95 Million for 7 years)
Univ of Albany: SEFCU Arena ($2.75 Million for 10 years)
South Carolina: Colonial Life Arena ($5.5 Million for 12 years)
Washington: Alaska Airlines Arena ($3.5 Million for 5 years)
Xavier: Cintas Center: ($10 Million)
Univ of Cincinnati: Fifth Third Arena ($10 Million)

Naming rights...its just free money (basically zero expenditures on the Univ's part)

We could still keep the RAC designation and ad a sponsor. And we should be in the 30-40 million area like Md and Ill........at some schools alums are fighting to be the top bid and name the stadiums after themselves(SEC and others)

With the Rent A Center naming rights, RU MBB would have had a better chance to get Karl-Anthony Towns to play for them
All the best HS centers that plan to turn pro, would be looking at RU as their stop-over :p
