Safelite Autoglass buys naming rights to playing field at Ohio Stadium

·1 min read

They say the only thing constant in the world is change and like it or not, a significant change has just been announced in Columbus. Safelite Autoglass, a company based in the capital city has purchased the naming rights to the playing surface in Ohio Stadium, which will now be known as Safelite Field.

Two white Safelite graphics will be placed opposite the Big Ten graphics on the field. One can only assume Ohio State was paid a hefty sum to hand those rights over. Now fans can expect to be greeted by stadium announcers, as well as TV and radio voices to “Safelite Field at Ohio Stadium.”

Is it true that all publicity is good publicity? I can’t imagine that this change is going to go over well with the vast majority of the Buckeye faithful. Will more people have Safelite fix their cracked windshield now that their name is on the playing surface? Does anyone else even fix broken windshields?

In a world where money seems to rule all, nothing is sacred anymore. Seems like this would have been a prime opportunity to name the field after an iconic former coach. I don’t know… maybe Woody Hayes Field?

Maybe more money gives OSU a better chance to win more championships, but something just doesn’t feel right about this.
