Sources: Assembly Hall to be renamed Simon-Skjodt Assembly Hall

According to sources, Indiana will announce later today its plans to renovate Assembly Hall. It will also announce that philanthropist Cindy Simon Skjodt and her family have contributed $40 million to the renovation effort and that the facility will be renamed Simon-Skjodt Assembly Hall.


  1. I can’t imagine anyone being “excited” about this news. But we need the money and the renovations need to get done.

    Well, I guess it could be worse, but the name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. It is better than some cheesey midwest, corporate name like “Value City”, ” or “State Farm.” Anyone have proper pronunciation for Skdjot?

    I’m surprised the megalomaniac Mark Cuban didn’t want his name immortalized on Assembly Hall.

    I’m glad we aren’t building a sterile, corporate new arena. I like the old girl. She’s something special.
