So, I would like to start off by saying that the stadium renovations look magnificent. Having seen them for the first time for the UConn game, they truly bring a majestic and powerful addition to an already impressive structure. However, with the likely addition of HD scoreboards and the soon-to-be addition of permanent lighting, I asked myself, "Crisler arena has banners, Yost has banners, where would the listings of our National Championship years go? What about Big Ten title years? Heisman winners? Etc."
This made me think that it could be a nice addition to the plain, solid navy boxes to have maize text across the top or bottom of the structure listing our title years, or even an iconic saying such as "Welcome to the Big House" or something similar to having "Michigan" above the old press box. I think it could spruce up the boxes and be the final touch for the best stadium in the country. I'm sure our football team would enjoy, and be proud of, having the program's accomplishments on display just as our basketball and hockey players do. Thoughts?
EDIT: Ok, to make myself more clear, I'm not talking about bringing back the halo, I don't want banners, or any large, gaudy signs. I'm saying that perhaps we can honor our past players and teams that brought greatness to Michigan Football in a way that many stadiums do around the country. I understand that the words "change" and "Michigan Stadium" do not sit well with a lot of people, but I figured that if Dave Brandon is pushing Michigan Stadium into the 21st century, that something like this could be accommodated, and probably more now than if we waited for 10 years. After all, once we got rid of the old press box, does it even say "Michigan" anywhere inside the stadium, aside from the OLD scoreboards?
DOUBLE EDIT: So after hearing about the other "memorials" to past teams in other concourses, I had to use the Google machine for pictures. I like what they did there, and I didn't get a chance to see it as the tunnel to my seats were directly in front of the gate I entered. I think that is classy and done well. Therefore, I now rescind my opinion on the matter, though I still thought it was A LOT of blue on those things.
