Eastern moving forward with its Championship Building Plan
Eastern's Board of Regents gave the go ahead for ground breaking to take place this coming January. It will compose 66,000 square feet, and will be located at the Northern End of Rynearson Stadium.

Nice work EMU. Looks great. Time for Kent to step up now. Eastern now has a 1st class basketball arena and soon to be football stadium set-up. If EMU can pull this off, then there is no reason Kent cant.

Kent already has an indoor practice facility and was the first in the MAC to have one... The MAC continues to follow in Kent's foot steps.

We live in a 'what have you done for me lately' facilities culture, frankly an IPF that's old enough to drink isn't impressive unless it's been updated. And even if you ignore that, you can't ignore the yellow student bleachers at Dix...

It was updated 3 years ago giving the womens teams their own locker rooms and coaches offices. As well as updating the weight room. But it is just a practice facility there isn't much to any of them.

Fans, especially EMU fans, need to realize this is Phase I.

What ground will be broken for in January is part of the entire project. The entire project is 45M. What will be started next month is part (20M) of the project.

It will be the 'football building' WITH a very nice video board on its face.

I believe the indoor track, etc. etc. is phase II.

That said, to most MAC FB fans, that is most of us, this is the most important part. Getting a nice building and video board up in that end zone.

I believe that the track will need to be removed so that the football building can extend into where the track is now. Might be wrong, but I also think the football field might be moved southward some (10 - 20 yards????).

So does that mean you will get rid of the awful grey field too

We really need to replace the video scoreboard in our Convo. It is really bad.

Looks like a real nice set-up for EMU... Congratulations !!
Would like to see them start filling the Rynearson... This will springboard their recruiting efforts and pay dividends for future success and attendance increase...04-cheers
