"The Birthplace of College Football" Removed?

According to this article on NJ.com this afternoon, the letters spelling out "The Birthplace of College Football" have been removed from the field-level wall on the south end of Rutgers Stadium.
According to the statement in the article from Jason Baum, Rutgers' senior associate athletic director for communications, a new spot for the letters hasn't been decided yet, but I have a suggestion. Put them back on top of the scoreboard (photo below from the December 5, 2009 West Virginia game) where they were before the sponsorship deal that removed them and replaced them with the commercial name we have never used (and will never use) when referring to Rutgers Stadium or R House or The Birthplace of College Football.

And put the letters back on the south wall too.
