CMU looking into hotel addition & Kelly/Shorts renovation

On Thursday, the Central Michigan University Board of Trustees is expected to give CMU President George Ross the go-ahead to pursue the creation of a hotel and renovations to Kelly/Shorts stadium in the near future.

According to the CMU Board of Trustees agenda for Thursday's meeting, the hotel would be built on the East Side of Kelly/Shorts Stadium where the outdoor practice facility is located. The project, as presently designed, would include a national franchise hotel with approximately 150 rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, exercise facilities, business center, restaurant, meeting or conference space, and other amenities.

Part of the project also includes the addition of stadium suites, with new restrooms and concession spaces for the east side of Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The suites would be connected to the hotel by a planned glass atrium. The university would lease the suites, with an option to purchase.

CMU Injury Notes for Navy

Heading into Saturday's game with Navy, the CMU football team, as expected, has some guys that will be sitting out due to injury.
-Tackle Rocky Weaver will not play due to his hand and wrist injury. Weaver is not expected to play against Toledo either.
-Guard Darren Keyton is being packed up for the season. His knee injury allowed him to attempt to play last week against the Broncos, but CMU will not risk further injury.
-The loss of Weaver, Keyton, and Jake Olson, make three starters at the beginning of the season lost with injury. Now, Eric Fisher will start at left tackle while Aaron Kaczmarski will start at left guard, Colin Miller starts at center, Jeff Maddux will move to right guard, and Mike Repovz will start at right tackle. Fisher has now started three different positions on the offensive line during the year.
-Linebacker Nick Bellore will play but has not practiced this week due to an injury suffered against WMU. Bellore had part of his gums torn from his jaw (Yikes) late in last Friday's game. Bellore has been unable to wear a helmet during the week as the injury heals up, keeping him from practicing, but he will play.
-Injuries to defensive backs Jahleel Addae and Bobby Seay Jr. should not keep them from playing and defensive tackle Sean Murnane will also play on Saturday.
-Look for CMU to go back to more of the 4-3 defense instead of the 3-4 this week as they feel the 4-3 will be more effective against the Navy offense.

CMU-Western Injury Notes

With the game less than 24 hours away, here are some injury notes:

-Defensive tackle Sean Murnane is a game-time decision for Friday because of injuries. Murnane is considered slightly more than 50-50 to play, but his ability and health will greatly impact what CMU does on defense.
-Guard Darren Keyton is questionable and will also be a game-time decision. He has missed the last two games and if he plays, Eric Fisher will replace Mike Repovz at right tackle and if Keyton doesn't play, Fisher will remain at right guard and Repovz will play right tackle.
-Safety Jahleel Addae is expected to play on Friday as is Bobby Seay Jr. Seay should play, but John Carr will start with Addae in the secondary.
