RE: New Football Locker Room
These look great! It looks like they are going to be as nice as the basketball locker room upgrade was.

Well done! I understand the locker room took over the meeting room next to the football offices and they're adding a player's lounge. Past time, and I thank Coach Clark for whatever leverage he brought to bear to make it happen.

Now let's get that practice field turf done. Maybe we can dream of an indoor practice field one of these days. If we can't get the OCS maybe we can just keep getting better one step at a time.

That's got to help our recruiting as well.

Yeah, it's a HUGE upgrade for sure. They installed new carpet in the locker room yesterday.

Agreed, any improvements we get help with recruiting. I think the practice field turf needs to happen next.

+1
Cut down on those turf related injuries, and how often practice has to be moved to Legion Field.

I think an indoor practice facility needs to be the next thing that happens. If it were me I would hold off on the turf one more season and put it in the indoor facility. This is critical for not only the obvious but recruiting.

Is this an actual possibility?"...being discussed internally?

RE: New Football Locker Room
Such as it is my thoughts are that we'd need to go turf now w/ long term plans to do an indoor facility once things have improved. How many times have we had to move practice to LF/BSU due to rain/drainage problems on the current grass field? I think going to turf now is a quick cheap investment that will pay dividends in recruiting that I don't think the BOT would have any problems approving.

RE: New Football Locker Room
Yes it is a very real possibility.
The location for the turf is the same location an indoor facility would go. Put turf in now and you rip it up to install the indoor facility. Those concrete footings that support the steel structure have to go somewhere.........

How about repairing the existing field by installing proper drainage, (has to be done anyway), then fixing the surface? Then start work on a facility for adverse weather.

UAB has limited funds and must spend it wisely.

Just my opinion. ;-)

Put me in charge and I'll really **** the place up!
