Carver-Hawkeye Arena Court to be called “Mediacom Court”

The University of Iowa Athletics Department announced Tuesday that it struck a sponsorship deal with local internet/cable provider Mediacom.

As part of the deal, the court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena will now be called “Mediacom Court” and the outdoor area in the Kinnick Stadium press box will be called the “Mediacom Outdoor Club.”

Sorry about not putting this up right when it was announced (My Mediacom internet wasn’t working. Go figure).

I’m sure this was a lucrative deal for the Athletics Department, but this is simply a lame idea and I’m not going to discuss it any more than it deserves to be discussed. Courts should be named after legendary players or coaches (See Coach K Court, Gene Keady Court, etc.).

Here’s some of the reactions that I’ve gotten from Hawkeye Fans via Twitter:
