Not sure and I can't find anything online, but it's got to be a ton. Not John F Kennedy name on a building level, but certainly a lot.

Without the fan support going back to Feb 1994,
I doubt it would have evolved into what it did.

Hoping to have a nice crowd @ the game Saturday and see all of you there.

Hope it's a great game with a win. Thanks ED for all your support and love for UMass!!!
The A10 lacks upward mobility, a G5 conference gives you possibilities for the future.

Thank you for all you do Sign Man , your name has come up many times in conversations about UMASS sports around our house. My wife and I along with one of my daughters are all alumni and we love everything UMASS. My daughter who was a feature Baton Twirler in the UMASS band was performing at one of the basketball games and you gave her a (new😁)pair of socks as a gift for being a committed fan !!!! We all thank You and your Wife for being a committed fan to the University we love !!!

Not sure and I can't find anything online, but it's got to be a ton. Not John F Kennedy name on a building level, but certainly a lot.
So then, how does one aspire to this level if it's not clear what the criteria is? Or, is the requirement to walk around the gym holding a sign for 30 years or so?

Not trying to take anything away from Ed here. I think all of us appreciate the wit and humor provided through these signs. But, if I wanted to achieve the same status level, what would I need to do?

Call the Athletic Department and ask... you'll probably get a clearer answer from them than from a fan message board.

The naming rights to Legacy Hall was previously listed at $750,000 so I would assume its something around there.
