With the completion of the stadium renovations next year does anyone know what the University will be doing with the remnants of the old press box after it is removed from the stadium? Be it seating, bricks, signage etc?
What will happen with the old Press Box?
put some of it up for auction. Would be cool to own some of that stuff.
Agreed. I would love a single piece of that structure to show off in my future Michigan Room.
Get a head start with some of this stuff.
or maybe this
or if you're a Jamie Morris guy
or this Anthony Carter jersey
Haha, I should have seen that coming. I already have a Jake Long and Chad Henne signed Michigan hat and jersey which will stay in my family forever. One day I will own Michigan memorabilia up the gazoo, but for now I am an out-of-state U-M student just trying to make tuition.
I think that we're all hoping that they do that. Who on here wouldn't want to buy an old seat from there? And even if I can't get something slightly pragmatic like and old seat, I'd still like something to remember the press box by and just to have as Michigan memorabilia.
And stools. But I haven't been in the press box in more than 10 years.
The Univ has said it will save the art deco lettering atop the press box, but, to my knowledge, will demolish the structure itself.
"The Univ has said it will save the art deco lettering atop the press box,"
I was wondering what they were going to do with that. Now for the important bit - what are they going to do with the fake eagle?
Convert it to student housing.
you know how when a home team pulls off a huge win, sometimes the fans will storm the field and pull down the goal posts?
I say, if we beat Ohio State, we dismantle the press box.
... beats living in a van, down by the (Red Cedar) river.
apart from the inside out and throwing it down the elevator shafts. you want some? Wait until after the season then go dumpster diving. Or, bribe a construction worker on site.
That's a great idea. They would definitely make tons of money from it. It would be a really classy move if they donated the proceeds to the Children's Hospital.
we put all of our MGOpoints together to buy it and make it the MGOBLOG official headquarters. Location in Ann Arbor to be determined.
Turn it into a bar.
It will become the new and improved Fleetwood Diner building.
Haul it off to the dump but keep it intact as a "press box." Afterall, the Freep beat reports will still need a place to sit during games.
I want to live inside it.
and let it tour the country like
i dont know wat they'll do with it but i say keep all the lettering and put it on the new press boxes and then auction the rest of it like they did with the cowboy stadium... with the money donate 1/2 to the childrens hospital
