Arizona State Athletic Director: There Will "Certainly" Be a Naming Rights Deal for Sun Devil Stadium

By D.J. Byrnes on May 28, 2014 at 1:27 pm

After Boise State sold the naming rights of their stadium to a grocery store chain, it appears Arizona State, and the spot where Ohio State won their first football championship since 1968, will soon join them.

Hard to argue with the financials — Boise State is getting $12.5 million over the course of 15 years, so it must be assumed Arizona State will get a lot more — but it smacks of the further NFLication of college football.

Let us hope these dark days do not find their way to Columbus. Ohio Stadium now, Ohio Stadium tomorrow, Ohio Stadium forever!
