Add Rupp Arena to the list of venues (which includes CMU's Kelly/Shorts Stadium) that might be soon getting a name change.
I'm sure Kentucky fans are handling the suggestion with grace.

OK, so anything at night essentially counts? I just didn't know if primetime ended before "late night" or something.

Yeah, Cerrano's list is like one of those albums with one or two really strong songs and then they record a bunch of filler to knock it out. Jerloma's list is weathered of course, but just loaded.
