column on Coleman's decision.
"Coleman found no benefit in further
delaying the discussion,' Peterson said.
John Pollack - founder of Save the
Big House, a group opposed to the reno-
vations - said the University's decision
to tack the renovations onto the agenda
"It was a very sly move, and I don't
think it reflects well on due process at the
University of Michigan," Pollack said.
"This is halo times 100:'
The halo was the painted ring added to
the stadium in 1998. After two years, the
halo was removed due to vehement pub-
lic disapproval. Pollack is also concerned
about the message the University is send-
ing by building luxury seating while
Michigan's economy is suffering.
"It's fiscally irresponsible," he said.
Former Dean for Research and Gradu-
ate Studies at the Medical School Irwin
Goldstein said he was disappointed with
was one of 33 faculty members from nine
schools and colleges who signed a letter
expressing their opposition to the luxury
boxes. Goldstein said if he knew the sta-
dium renovations were to be discussed
at the meeting, he would have been there
- along with several of his colleagues.
He said the meeting should have been
held in Ann Arbor.
Maynard acknowledged that holding
the meeting in Dearborn was not conve-
nient for Ann Arbor residents who wanted
to voice their opinions.
Goldstein is also upset that the skybox-
es will be so high, saying they will "pre-
clude the sun."
"We have an incredibly beautiful
stadium and it will never be the same,"
Goldstein supports Regent Laurence
Deitch's alternative proposal of spending
$55 to $60 million on "necessary" reno-
vations, excluding the luxury boxes.
He said he wished he could have been
at the meeting to endorse Deitch.
Goldstein hopes an additional meeting
will be held in Ann Arbor for the commu-
nity to comment. He said he is willing to
pay more for tickets if necessary.

request, athletic director Bill Martin
