    No signs have been put up on changed. At least not as of around noon on July 1st. Didn't see a single EagleBank reference.

    Sorry gents, nothing has changed. No pics to take. Signs on Braddock Rd. are the same, references to the "Patriot Center" are still all over. "Patriot Center" signs on the side of the building near the ticket office. Nothing new to show.

    Along the same lines, the Provost's Office sent out this email today:

    "All faculty and staff are invited to participate in the New Student Convocation – August 28, 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. We will process into the Eagle Bank Arena (formerly the Patriot Center) as a group. Please plan to arrive no later than 9:15 a.m. – Hospitality Room, bottom floor of the Arena.

    Wear your GREEN and Gold!"

    Yeah getting naming rights was a big step forward. Although I do still refer to it as the Patriot Center. Interestingly, I'm considering using Eagle Bank for my freelance programming work I do on the side. Wouldn't have used them if they didn't name the stadium.
