For those out of town, a few pics outside the Schembechler Hall renovation, scheduled to re-open in April:

State Street view

Corner facade from State St – note the block M in stone on the corner.

Schembechler Hall cornerstone

  Cornerstone is in – what did they put inside?   Singing frog named Michigan J.?

 Fritz Crisler on Tradition

Epic quote from Fritz Crisler on the Michigan tradition behind the blue Ladder of Shame, highlighting historic lowlights.

  Those Who Stay

Those Who Stay Will Be Champions – etched in stone greets everyone at the main entrance.

 Tower of Pigskins

The Righteous Tower of Victory Pigskins – this wraps around inside.   Looks like they are numbered and I assume they signify each football win in history (yes, there are enough of them to do that).

 

 Wall of Champions The Wall of Greats – a collection of great players, coaches, teams and moments.

  1. WOW that looks great. I love the big glass windows and how the classic brick facade matches with Yost and Glick.

    Thanks a lot for the pictures!

  2. Yeah, very cool how the athletic campus has become architecturally harmonious. We’ve classed things up there over the past 20 years . . . I remember when Michigan Stadium just had a cheap chain-link fence around it. And of course Crisler resembled a dungeon inside not too long ago.

    Great photos!
