08:46 AM ET 08.04 | The University of Miami hasn't seriously discussed removing Alex Rodriguez's name from its baseball stadium amid more allegations of PED use, but won't comment publicly about it. But this would not be an easy call, considering he contributed $3.9 million toward renovations and considering he hasn't been charged with a crime.

Considering the money he spent on their park, I'd think they will keep his name on it.

If they return the money and change the name then fine. If they keep the money, then no way. If J. Edgar Hoover can have his name on the FBI building, then names just do not mean much.

Just call the place "The Juice" and move on.

I know, they can give one of their famous baseball alumnis a call and see if he will give some of the $100+ million he has coming his way to them and they can rename it "Ryan Joseph Braun Stadium."

For that money it should be Awesome A-Rod Stadium.

Well, if they do that, I just want the guy to know that for just $1 million I will stencil his name all over my house.

I don't think so!!

If Arod loses challenge and gets the 200+ games that was mentioned that would just about wipe out most of his remaining contract. About 1 1/2 seasons. I could see A-Rod if it looks like he might lose challenge he might try to negotiate a shorter suspension.
