    Reports online say they're getting $10m for selling the naming rights. It will be called Banterra Center.

    We better be in on trying to do this with the hulman center... That family hasn't done jack squat for ISU or the building in my lifetime..So why keep it named it after them?? And also that is a great avenue to raise money for bells and whistles that attracts recruits.

    Spectacle Arena at The Hulman Center

    Yeah, so there’s the gambling thing, but who really cares?

    Agree 100%. The financial gift that Tony Hulman gave to help build/finance the $10,000,000 HC then was $2.5 million....or 25% of the cost to build the $10,000,000 facility.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hulman_Center

    Hopefully, the university didn't sign some forever naming rights to the Hulman's. Their gift at that time was awesome, but the Hulman generosity to ISU since then, has been NON-EXISTENT.....even with Tony Hulman George being an ISU graduate!!!

    If new naming rights could be negotiated, ISU shouldn't do it for a paltry $10 million. I'd rather leave it as HC, then sell ourselves short...the only bad would outcome I see is,....I can see just a smidgen of the renaming rights going to the athletic budget...for the sake of diversity, ISU would screw it up and give a piece to everyone at ISU, to satisfy PC inclusion goals.
