Won't work.

They're on to us after we got Bartow Arena built by calling it a convocation center.

We can always try that again as it doesn't hurt to at least try it maybe we can fool them again 03-lmfao

Make them turn you down 50 times. In fact, make sure there is something about them turning you down for something in the paper every week.

If it's good enough for gameday it's good enough for practice.

And if we're going to move gameday to another off campus facility that will be a permanent move, why not just move the entire football operations to the Langford Dome and not have to transport anything ever?

I strongly suspect that we'll have it together to build an indoor practice facility long before the city can build a dome. If they build it, we'll be playing in it, because frankly I think the dome happens before the OCS does, but an indoor facility is a helluva lot more doable.

The cheapest ACC indoor practice facility looks to be Georgia Tech's at $6.7 million........up to 48 million for UNC's. Around 15-20 million seems to be the norm.

The IAC was part of a 30 million dollar vision campaign that includes:

Soccer Complex (Opened in Aug 2013)
IAC (Indoor Athletic Complex) (Opening in Aug 2014)
Sports Medicine Facility
Hall of Fame
Academic Center

IAC will have:

6 lane 300 meter track
Batting cages for baseball and softball
A net for golf
Portable Tennis courts
Seating for 1000

The IAC took up 14.5 million of the 30 million.

Sounds about right...........still less than what the bammers are spending on their baseball complex. I didn't know MTSU built that though.....looks good!

An indoor practice facility about 84,000sf can be built for 6 million in my estimation.

Hell we put a Lazy River in the Rec center. If we tell them it has nothing to do with athletics it will be approved. We just install it in the wrong location.

Sorry to get off topic.

Back to the topic.

How do these locker rooms relate to other locker rooms of teams in our conference, etc?
