The Big House To Receive $6 Million Paint Job

Michigan athletic director David Brandon recently announced his extravagant $200 million construction agenda, and one of the more interesting projects inside happens to be a $6 million paint job for Michigan's football stadium, The Big House.

Set to begin airbrushing in February after approval from the U-M Board of Regents, the paint job is the 3rd smallest (monetarily, anyway) of the 11 proposals outlined in Brandon's agenda. Some of the other projects include a $25 million pledge to build a rowing/strength and conditioning facility, $90 million to build indoor and outdoor tack facilities, $30 million to build a multi-purpose competition arena, and $20 million to expand the swimming, diving and water polo facilities.

As far as the timing of the six-figure paint job, after pouring so much money into the football facilities already in his tenure, Brandon was rather coy. "We need to paint Michigan Stadium." he said. "It's only a mere $6 million."
