The snow caps are
Our track facility was just upgraded
Yeah we get it you guys run
Did they use a construction company or just bring over all the 8 year olds who make the shoes?
We have uniforms
so that’s cool
Sadly it makes "meat judging" more difficult
I have been to there. Unless there are multiple joints in Lawrence and I’m mixing them up
legend has it that the ghost of relevant husker football wanders the new facility
indoor and outdoor practice facilities being built rn
opened last year
both within the last 10 years
went out for a game last year, it’s wild how far they brought it since I was in school. legit one of the nicest small stadiums in cfb now.
Thanks Howard Roark
Feels like a lot of people trying to brag ITT. Like bro our conference has a zillion dollar tv deal too
Clemson’s new baptism facility looks great. Multiple baptismal pools a could really make things more efficient.
free transportation via Boobie Bus
I think it will. The money will be better spent just paying players.
I prefer to just call a Boober.
Actually, Ohio State’s football facilities are kind of behind in my opinion.
We have done renovations and scoreboard/lights updates that make our 100 year old stadium fine. No complaints there.
Our football practice facility was built in 1987. It was been renovated, but it’s not fantastic by any means.
0/10... Do Not want
I don't even see a community water fountain
You’ll get there one day. Even Clemson got a new scoreboard this year
When football doesn’t exist in thirty years (assuming humans do) these projects are all gonna be pretty cool to visit.
They’ll be used as fútbol facilities by then
Ohio State has been oddly quiet despite the revenue boom.
We have virtually no football facilities or stadium debt.
Basketball and hockey play in an arena that went live in 1999 and is basically paid for.
Baseball and track went live with new facilities in 2000 and 2001 that are largely paid for.
We have an empty basketball arena and adjacent field house built in 1954 sitting as the single largest undeveloped piece of land on campus. It’s right across the street from the stadium, gathering dust now that all Olympic sports moved in 2021 to a new facility.
If Tech is dropping $200M, God help us when UT decides they want to get serious.
Won’t be too long before you start seeing $1B upgrades.
i know the sec is still unfamiliar with texas, but soon you will come to find that their endless supply of money is meaningless
That hockey arena is absolutely awful though. 18K seats for 4K attendance. Tear it down and build something that fits the crowd size. Looks like a Southern Cal/Miami football game.
Our AD and booster club said upping our facilities game was necessary to compete. I don't understand
Nobody can measure up to our indoor practice facility
These facilities are so embarrassing!!!
New research building? Obviously polishing those credentials for the B1G application.
I absolutely loathe all of these universities spending hundreds of millions on football facilities. It's atrocious.
I'm loving the new fight over money between the AD and the NIL collectives.
Will also host Nursing School and Sport/Exercise Science
Indoor practice facility/ nursing school?
Yeah it used to be a lot cheaper 10 years ago when everyone else was doing it
That's what they're proposing
Ohio State is going to play Tecmo Bowl format going forward?
this is going to cost way more than $170 million. Inflation and they vastly underestimated how much steel would cost.
I won’t even get into some of the other issues that are purely Nebraska lol 101.
I need an oz explanation of the issues, please.
That’s why UGA had this little cute indoor facility for so long
In addition to this:
Florida is gearing up for a major renovation to BHG. Poster on the Florida On3 site did a good job of chronicling what’s known thus far. The fact that we’re spending $300 million but won’t spend a couple extra grand to change the lights to orange or blue seems pretty dumb.
“Scott Stricklin has been building up an announcement for a multi-year, potentially $300 million+ renovation to Ben Hill Griffin stadium, which he says will be the largest renovation in the building's 90-year history. The things we know so far are:
Florida has hired architect Janet Marie Smith who is largely responsible for the retro-modern baseball ballparks like Camden Yards and renovations to Fenway Park and Dodger Stadium.
Stadium upgrades are rumored to cost on the range of $150-500 million.
Stadium capacity will be decreasing to allow for chair back seats and more room for fans.
Many longtime season ticket holders will be displaced, but to where has not been finalized yet.
More entrance gates will be added to the stadium to increase throughput before and after games.
Work to expand and improve the operational corridors and ADA access of the stadium will be made.
At least one major commercial kitchen will be built onsite to improve food options and quality.
New video boards, TVs, signage, and audio equipment will be installed.
New lights are in the long term plans, but will likely not be a part of this upcoming renovation. They likely also won't be the type that can do multiple colors.
AD Scott Stricklin wants to position the stadium for entertainment purposes outside of football.
A priority of this renovation is to provide more luxury options for fans.”
FSU has the student union in the football stadium. Our old basketball arena had a couple academic departments under it. I’ve seen similar arrangements
Doesn’t LSU’s stadium have dorms in it that were in use until fairly recently?
There’s a couple of broke down elementary schools in there iirc
My brother works for one of the steel companies that is providing a lot of the beams and stuff to build it. Nebraska hired a newer architect, graduate of Nebraska, to lead a lot of design.
They vastly underestimated certain shit. One example, they needed to up the strength of some of the walls/beams to hang a big, fancy tv boards.
Inflation be damned, it was going to cost several more million than initially just on underestimating load structures and shit.
i can only imagine what used to be housed in LSUs stadium
We built our new baseball stadium by a river adjacent to a granite quarry. When construction began, they were shocked to discover the ground was solid granite and had to delay everything
Doak has classrooms and testing centers, but the student union isn’t there.
our richest alum actually refuses to donate to sports in any meaningful way and *only* does academics. He built his own math and stats building on campus.
