I do believe that there has to be something better,not even the most incompetent can make a deal that bad. For transperancy purposes they should include the details.
The blood sweat and tears of the AAF built that stadium way back when, and if they going to change the name the AAF should not be requesting info, it should be demanded.
not trying to be cynical, but i hear folk all the time saying we could've got a better deal. well, if that's true, then why hasn't any other hbcu gotten a better naming rights deal for their football stadium, if any at all? and if our folk are so incompetent, why don't the critics go out and strike a better deal for a&t and i'm sure hilton and martin would be receptive.
look folks, just because a corporation strikes a certain deal with a pwc doesn't mean they will strike a similar or better deal with an hbcu, nor are they "obligated" to do so. sometimes you have to take whatever you can get, especially when you're not giving anything away.
they can put a "bb&t" sign at every entrance, every exit, and on every seat in aggie stadium and most aggies will still call it "aggie stadium". so how is accepting a $150k payment for changing the official name of aggie stadium in any way a bad thing? doing "nothing" and not getting paid at all is a bad thing if somebody offers us $150k to do just that...
