CHAMPAIGN -- Millions of dollars have been raised through a "naming" fundraising campaign at the State Farm Center. Pretty much any- and everything in the center can be named for a price.

Donors are paying up to $500,000 for high-traffic areas. $95 million has been generated so far. The UI's athletic director isn't surprised by the response.

About three dozen areas have been named so far. They include the Sarnecki Locker Room and the Swanson Family Illini Media Center.
