2. They do have the interlocking TV screens. Among south stadium seating, monogrammed leather cushions seating, and great decor.

3. They have virtual reality for the qbs. Safeties and lbs imo can't benefit from this because things change with collisions and rerouting. It's better for qbs, which is what we do have in place. You can recognize formations from film study.

What we have in place right now is light years from before. No we don't have TVs in ever locker but honestly what do you need that for? THAT isn't functional. That's extra bs. We have is God awfully nice. The locker room is beautiful. The lounge area is wonderful(could be a little better but still great). What we have in place is on par from what I've seen recently. We're are going in the right direction.

Night Owl - I am an old lurker but avid Owl fan(read Neely-era). I have always treasured your posts and find these refreshing and very, very positive as to the direction the program will be heading in the next few years. I also find it positive that you have remained loyal to your alma mater despite the up and mostly downs over the past 50+ years. I hope that your children have the opportunity to attend Rice and continue that relationship.

Best wishes to you and the family!

Thank you for the uplifting words. I just speak the truth as much as I can. As for my boys we'll see what's up here pretty soon. What I do know is now Rice is on MY list of acceptable schools for them. I have to see that you care about your program as much as you are going to want my kids to care about it. Because of that last sentence THAT'S why I stay rooted in Rice because I do love my school. If you want my kids loyalty I need to see your school is worthy of it.

Since my understanding was that it was originally only partly completed (kind of the Rice athletics traditional do-it-half-assed way), it would only make sense that some additions to improve it would be made.

Have we received any other gifts from former NFL players? Or is Sendejo the only one with a room named after him?
