It must be tough being a snowflake liberal, where everything in the world is offends you. The amount of preparation H to comfort the butthurt must be expensive.

I read this earlier and thought it had to be a parody. It isn't, it's real. I'm not for lawsuits normally, but he needs to sue the crap out of them. It's time to start hitting these loonies back.

Except for the fact he is still employed by ESPN. They just changed the location of where he will be commentating. ESPN is just showing how easily they will collapse under controversy.

But guys, if they didn't do this than how would we know that he isn't actually the resurrected ghost of General Lee come to announce a football game with racist undertones? Exactly, there would be no way to know it wasn't actually him.

U of H is renaming a building just because it has the same name as John CCalhoun, though it was not named after him. Its not just "them" any more. Its here. Its "us".

"The University of Houston does not have statues, memorials or monuments honoring the Confederate era. Calhoun Lofts were originally named to coincide with the name of the adjacent city street when the university began its aggressive residential expansion in the last decade. While the residence hall was not named in recognition of John C. Calhoun, in the wake of recent events, and out of sensitivity to our diverse student community the university has decided to change the name to University Lofts. The change will be made as soon as practical.

If they were really thinking this thru they could bid that naming out to alumni for BIG dollars. Forget that "University Loft" non sense............big contributors to that university that would be more than happy to have there name on a huge building for prosperity!!! Just saying!!!

Sad to see that change..........collapse is a fair word!!
I did see where this decision was made in the heat of battle supposedly and the announcer (Rob Lee) agreed with the decision. I guess it was not very important to him as he was for the move to another game. Maybe they thought it was not going to get out to the public. Dunno........seems totally insane!

Isnt naming these places after people, and erecting statues what the snowflakes are protesting against? Seems like if you throw enough money at it and know the right people it doesn't really matter.

My question is what happens if people find this ego driven, self made, outspoken, fake tanning, real estate mogul, white guy, offensive.

In June 2010, the University of Houston announced a $40 million plan to renovate Hofheinz Pavilion. Ultimately in November 2015, the Board of Regents approved a $60 million complete re-design of the facility to open in 2018, funded in part by a $20 million gift from UH alum Tilman Fertitta. After the Hofheinz family objected to the building be renamed, the school and the family reached a settlement to honor Judge Hofheinz by building a plaza containing a bronze statue of him near the facility, which will be called Fertitta Center. In addition, the UH library will archive Hofheinz's historical records in a special section. Finally, UH will petition the city of Houston to change the name of Holman Street between Cullen Boulevard and Scott Street to honor the Hofheinz family.

How about naming rights to a corporate entity? Heck, I like the sound of TBH LOFTS if they want to write the check for it! The Hilton School of Hospitality rocks at UH...........actually nationally acclaimed! WE all can find excuses to why something cant work, lets find a reason why they CAN work.
