Everyone is naming based on $$$ these days.

I wonder when people will start naming their kids "Nike" and "McDonalds"

Although it’s been nearly 20 years ago, I seem to recall the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation giving the UofA about 20 million reasons to rename Razorback Stadium after Donald W. Reynolds.

I'll always be grateful to Bud Walton for having it named Bud Walton Arena and not Wal-Mart Arena.

Totally makes sense to name stadium after a huge donation from a sponsor.  Great advertising for the sponsor.

If a Nike would have given me a huge donation to have a kid then I would have named him Nike.    I am not so sure if I would have done the same for Underarmor.    LOL

Why do we care about this? Sponsors naming stadiums isn't new.

It would be like us naming our stadium "Tyson Chicken Breast" Stadium or something like that. Few would like that, except for perhaps one.

Now there is good reason why it was named Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium and here is the reason.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_W._Reynolds_Razorback_Stadium

And here is another reason, the philanthropy of the man and his Foundation that isn't just limited to the University of Arkansas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_W._Reynolds

It's a lot different than just naming it after a Credit Union.

You mean like Centennial Bank Stadium over in the East part of the state?

Could they not get Kotex, Preparation H or Metamucil to back them?

OK, those are pretty good. And why not? What if they put up the cash? Is there some higher entity that would say "no"?

Here's a little Hogville research contest--which has been the WORST stadium/area name so far? And for a bonus round, the stupidest bowl game name? (Poulan Weed-Eater Bowl may be hard to top, just out of sheer comedy.)

Yep, I get it but I hate it. Glad the bowl games have gone back to more traditional names.

Worst Stadium/Arena name... The Covocation Center. Might as well have called it “gymnasium”. Thank goodness First National Bank stepped in.

Stupidest Bowl...The Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl in St. Petersburg or
Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl

Nice....er, hey!....don't make fun of our St. Pete bowl game. "The Man" is already taking the Rays MLB team away and moving it into a new stadium to be built across the bay in Tampa.
