    Sukup

    I recently took a school field trip to ISU and got to tour this entire building. The locker rooms and everything. Not many people know how cool it is, check it out.

    That place is sure incredible. I took a tour with one of the basketball managers and was amazed. I liked the pool table with the ISU basketball court as the felt. The theater room is really cool. Each player gets a leather reclining chair in stadium style seating.

    Re: Sukup

    What does it take to get a tour? Will my 4 seasons of season tickets get me in?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Yes I did. Now I know why we needed the practice facility to try and compete with places like that.

    I'm going way out on a limb here but I'm guessing the players might have been given some talking points before they were interviewed. Like maybe fact they have 24 hour access.

    Re: Sukup

    My dream is for Sukup to eventually be a Volleyball/Gymnastics facility. If somehow they came into some money and were able to build something attached to Hilton, that building would be awesome for those two sports...probably one of the best in the country.

    But as it is now, it's a nice recruiting tool and benefit for our players. It's not going to compete with the top facilities (especially with Boone Pickens funding it) but it will do just fine.

    Rather have new facilities not be built in a flood plain.

    Or, they just really like having 24 hour access.

    Pretty sweet place. If I was a college player, something like that would be exciting to have.

    I suspect that they do enjoy this. I saw DG tweet about being there in the middle of the night several times pre season. Looks like it works to me!

    Re: Sukup

    OSU showed their lavish remodeled locker rooms, but did they show off their practice court? No because they don't have a place like we do where men or women can go and get access to work on their game anytime. OSU has practice either on the big arena gym or go to another place to hold practice. They don't have the all-in-one facility like we do where both teams can go any time of the day any day of the week

    To me, the most exciting part of that video was Royce White's jumper.

    What about that custom pool table covering at the end there? A replica of the basketball floor... Awesome!
