COLUMN: If you want a winning football team, the Chippewa Champions Center will help

Priced at $32 million, the Chippewa Champions Alumni Center is a hefty project, to say the least.

Stretching three levels, the building will be home to the Alumni Center and office spaces, an improved training center for student-athletes and a sports medicine complex.

Many non-athletes question the value of the project by asking, what about the rest of us?

Some of those same students showed immense frustration following CMU's 1-11 season under now-former coach John Bonamego.

I understand why some students dislike the idea of spending the $32 million on a football project that could be complete in 2021, but it will help the athletic department as a whole.
