Maybe the penalty box at the Rink can be renamed for Jerome.

Would be interesting to know how much we sold out for? I assume its a pretty significant amount which can go towards getting this program where we all want it to be, high mid major with a change to do some damage to the brackets

The article seems to imply that it was for more than basketball - hope that this is at least a 7 figure amount for a number of years.

Macquarie Court?

We didn't sell out. Just ask Grace. We were just waiting for the right "fit." Thank goodness this great company came along to save the day.

I'd love to know where this money goes to help (haven't practice facilities and the entire sports complex been updated?). Mark me as a cynic, but all I got when reading the story was how this makes good resume fodder for an AD...Are we really that desperate for funds? After a title year no less?

With abject apologies (attended by the obligatory bowing and scraping), I find this to be incredibly offensive: if “branding” is a predicate to “raising the required funds to compete”, why not sell the name of the institution to the highest (or most robustly aggressive) bidder)? Why not festoon the uniforms of the athletes with advertisements? Why not pay athletes for sponsor tattoos? Really, where does one stop and ask “is this too much, in the grand scheme of matters?”. At what point is one’s identity determined by the logo on one’s clothing, in contrast to one’s history? Are we game enough to ask these uncomfortable questions? Knowing arrows (some flaming) might be coming my way, do we really want to stumble, blindly, down this road? Just sayin’

OK, stated more succinctly: if one is sui generis, why resort to a stunt such as this?

Maybe we can fund a couple of extra athletic scholarships.

"Welcome to Macquarie Stadium at Historic Franklin Field, located in the Macquarie Riverfront Complex."

And, how does one pronounce Macquarie? Does it rhyme with Quackery?

Is the first "a" similar to the Hah-vard "ah," so it would be Mahckery Court?

"Welcome to Mockery Court at the formerly historic Palestra, brought to you by Mockery Investments. Penn and Mockery, perfect together!"

Penn Athletics has another sponsor, AXIA Time.

According to the article at the DP, Penn alumnus and Penn Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee John Kanaras founded AXIA Time this year and has quickly become partners with all eight schools in the Ivy League.

Not sure about the other schools, but Penn has created a new name for this weekend's Homecoming football game.

https://www.thedp.com/article/2018/11/penn- athleti...

- AXIA Time will be giving away a watch at select Penn home athletic events throughout the year. The company will have its first giveaway at the Palestra on Friday night during Penn men’s basketball’s home opener against Rice. The next day, another AXIA timepiece will be gifted to a fan at Penn football’s homecoming matchup, now called Homecoming: Presented by AXIA Time, against Harvard.

Furthermore, during some of Penn’s home conference games, the Palestra will have an AXIA Time table, where fans can try on watches from the University Timepieces collections and enter for a chance to win one of their own. -

Is it just me, or are they rolling out new sponsors at a clip of one per week?

Why has the Ivy League, of all things, capitulated to this corporate nonsense?

From what I've heard in other fora, Penn Athletics does not get subsidized to the same extent that some of the other Ivies do, so they may need everything they can get.

What is NOT for sale? Jeez, I'm gonna slap my name on a toilet in Franklin Field.



The library already beat you to it. Check out the urinals in the bathroom near Rosengarten sometime. I'm not making this up.

I wouldn't go to Rosengarten when I attended Penn. Why would I do so now?

I did however, go to the McLelland sub-sub-sub basement to study. That was true purgatory.

My favorite spot was up in the carrels in Furness.
