New name for the Assembly Hall in Champaign

Fans of the University of Illinois have one thing to say about the school's announcement yesterday it was renaming Assembly Hall the State Farm Center -- they hate it. Effective immediately. the 50-year-old home to Illini basketball will be re-named for the major insurance carrier thanks to a 30-year naming rights deal with State Farm worth 60-million bucks. Fans are telling various media outlets they refuse to bow to the university's corporate decision and will continue to call their venerable building "Assembly Hall."
