Resolution to Restore Reed to Acadome Stands

A joint resolution passed by the state Legislature to restore Joe L. Reed's name to the Alabama State Acadome will stand.

The resolution went to the governor's desk last month, and Reed said that unlike last year, the governor did not veto the resolution.

Though a resolution is non-binding, Reed has sent a letter via his lawyer to the chairman of the Alabama State University Board of Trustees advising the board to put Reed's name back on the Acadome.

The ASU board recently voted to change rename the Acadome after coaches Charles Johnson "C.J." Dunn and James V. Oliver with the best winning records.

The board voted to remove Reed's name from the building in May 2008, but Reed said a resolution of the state Legislature supersedes what was passed by the board. In addition, he says the state Legislature's resolution passed before the board decided to rename the Acadome.
