New weight room construction

Submitted by Maizen on May 1st, 2017 at 4:23 PM

The University's architecture, engineering, and construction website says the start date on construction is Spring 2017. It's already May, and I have yet to see any renderings of the project. Anyone have any details? I believe umbig11 mentioned awhile back this was part one of a two part renovation and they were still in the process of raising another $14 million dollars for additional renovations to Schembechler Hall and the hydrotherapy and training areas.

Acting this way generally brings down the desirability of the board, so it's not just "simply" that I don't like those things.

Feel free to act like a 12-year-old when you're 40, but if you find yourself with no friends, it's not because everyone else is a douchecanoe.

Now, let's be fair. There are about a dozen or so people with mod powers. 

I took the first one, but as the interface is not designed to allow any of us to win this argument at the end of the day - just ask Voltron, Spock, etc... or indeed anyone with "Ghost Of" in their account name  - I guess we'll have to see where and how far this goes, eh?

The biggest fan in M history needs recognition.  and I am my own biggest fan.  It's been a slow news day, and I can't even graciously provide you all with softball or diving or ultimate frisbee updates, so I wanted to generously provide you all with the results of my photo shoot.

I look-can you say-FANtastic!

So I am to think this OP is original or cool? On the face of it, it is a guy pretending to be someone who he clearly thinks is inferior. WD is, to put it nicely, a little obsessed but harmless. the OP is the loser trying to be him.
As a fan, I want UM to have people who are as dedicated as WD as part of this fan base. I can do without The people who probably hit their high point in high school and get off by belittling people who are different.

We're just being courteous. Rutgers opened their new weight room 3 or 4 days ago. We'll give them a week to enjoy it before revealing ours. It's highly amusing to make fun of them, but we don't want to completely crush their spirits.

I thought I heard it was starting in June as well. I'll see if I can find where I saw that.
