Arkansas releases plans, pictures for $35 million athletic facility

timthumb.php

Arkansas is doing its part to keep up with the ever increasing need for top-notch facilities in college football.

Today, the university unveiled the drawings for a new, $35 million football operations center, which is set to begin construction sometime this year.

The 80,000-square-foot facility will house new coaches offices, locker rooms, team meeting rooms, training rooms, equipment rooms, lounges, a study area and football museum. The total time of construction is projected to be 18 months.

However, there’s been no word yet on whether the facility will feature a multi-colored waterfall flowing into a pool of pure gold inhabited by actual mermaids like Oregon’s athletic offices.

Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long said that $12 million had already been raised and that the rest of the funds would be gathered through donations.

    I hate to hear this – it will only help them with recruiting.

    The locker end caps look like giant Scrabble tiles.

    Good to see our Alabama and Florida friends are stalking our program; a little fear is good for the soul.

    See how I totally ignored Tenner there?

    Hey rolltide the Homer I saw your sarcasm. Its a SPORTS facility not a football center. For your information Arkansas has 42 National Championships as a school, including in Football and in Basketball.

    Don’t let yourself get trolled on the internet that easy. It’s embarrassing to your school.
