Big House Is Another Big Headache for Michigan Football

The University of Michigan's plan to revamp Michigan Stadium has been met with much opposition, most recently a petition signed by 600 faculty and staff members saying that "the renovation approval process was marked by the censorship of opposing viewpoints and that the $226 million price tag is too high," according to the Michigan Daily. The alterations to the nation's largest-capacity football stadium would add premium seating and luxury boxes atop the bowl, a change that will "damage its reputation, undermine public trust, and saddle itself with a costly stadium plan that does not reflect UM's traditional values or mission," the petition reads. And with the football team's four-game losing streak (Appalachian State is Hot! Hot! Hot!) and its recent general-studies scandal, it seems that Michigan football has a lot more problems than this can-the-coach website.
