Michigan Has Money For Practice Facility

A little happier news before I post my thoughts on the Ekpe situation. Mark Snyder of the Free Press is reporting that Michigan has the money together for a practice facility and plans to move forward with the project.

“We need to go through the approval process with the university, we have the resources to do it, we’ve hired an architect to start our preliminary planning,” Martin said. “We haven’t had the project approved through our administrative and regental process but I expect to be able to take that in the very near future and move forward with that project. And we need it.”

This is certainly encouraging, apparently its a multi step process before actual ground can be broken but Martin taking it on as a personal project and pushing it is definetely a big step. Martin also mentioned that U-M will “take on” Crisler after the stadium renovations. Proving that they are taking concrete steps and having the plans would be a boost to recruiting by itself I would think.
