I actually put in a request for additional info about them as it becomes available. Everyone on this board should do the same.......we're obviously the EMU football diehards. My guess is they'll be in the low 'hundreds of dollars' range. When TCU built their new stadium a few years back they did the exact same thing.....price was $150:

"Become a permanent part of the TCU Football tradition by having your name etched into the east entrance of Amon G. Carter Stadium. By making a gift of $150 you can have a personal message engraved on a 4" by 8" brick. All bricks are installed at the east side entrance near Frog Alley."

Just a small and lasting way to contribute on some level. Also something tangible that will be around for a long time. Not everyone has 500k like TJ to get their name on the strength and conditioning room, but most here have a couple hundred bucks for a permanent name on the sidewalk.

Sign up gentlemen!


I love that. I will definitely be in for a brick.

I've done this is memory of my deceased son at Cooley Stadium and also the refurnished Grand Trunk Depot in Lansing. I'll sign up.

Was just listening online as Chris Creighton was on Lansing sports radio.

When asked about the building project, he said it's been "rubber stamped" by the Board and shovels will be in he ground the day after our final home game this season.

Perfect timing to announce ground breaking after our last home game solidifies bowl eligibility.

Then bowl eligibility plus best MAC facilities should lead to a very nice Football recruiting class....

BTW, this makes sense.

EMU has say 9 months to demolish and build the new building, get a scoreboard up, etc.

They need to get a new soccer field and track up for spring as the northern end of the track (by the end zone) will be gone for construction.

I thought I read or heard somewhere this was going to take 18 months, not 9? Could very well be wrong, or thinking of something else.

I think you are right, but they have to do it in such a way that EMU can have all of their athletic teams compete in 2018.

I'd think that getting the new soccer field/track has to be done this fall so it is ready for 2018 spring sports.

As far as indoor practice facilities, the existing bubble can be used for 2018 spring ball, etc.

I'd think some of our Olympic sports will move over to West Campus in 2019, not 2018.
