Today, we finally got some details on the new Rupp Arena redesign — and the visuals look awesome. With the upgrade, some Kentucky fans were worried that the arena could be renamed. We now know that the iconic arena will keep the name Rupp, but a corporate sponsor could be added to it.
This caused some panic among Big Blue Nation, so of course, UK fans took to Twitter to give their “suggestions” for a new name.
To show you some of the best ones, we complied a list — check it out:
Yahtzee Rupp Arena has a nice sound to it.
