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.
ASU AD Ray Anderson: "There will certainly be a naming rights deal (for Sun Devil Stadium) "

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!
