Should Villanova consider a corporate sponsor to the renovated Pavilion?

New, comments

Let's take a page from our amigos up Syracuse way.

Huuuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaaay! I'm back from vacation with a renewed sense of purpose. And what do I get? Not one, but two articles that tickle my fancy.

The first deals with The Carrier Dome, and how they should be exploring corporate naming rights. That hits home. I get that Villanova doesn't like that stuff, but if you're going to call on alumni to solicit donations - and are publicly concerned about the revenue that the basketball program should be generating - it's a fair question to ask. You might not get a ton, but you're getting more than you're getting with the current name.

The second deals with Radnor. Boy, I sure missed laughing at the complaints. Enjoy the latest from Jane Galli, folks. It's a hoot.

And now, the "news."
