    If the Big 12 stays together Oklahoma fans might poop themselves when they get to see all the improvements made since 2007.

    I also wondered if it would be put on hold.

    Good that it's getting built still, but I just wonder where the revenue to pay for it will come from if the worst case scenario happens.

    I'll take it to mean that the people in charge feel confident about everything.......which is a good sign.

    Re: Practice Facility

    This may have already been discussed, but will this facility involve a tunnel (or something resembling a tunnel) for the players to run out of? Just curious...

    According to Pollard, there will be a tunnel, but it will connect to the ramp on the west side of the Jake. The players will then walk down from there. He said there's too much stuff buried in the NW hillside of JTS to tunnel under there.

    Re: Practice Facility

    How much debt did this project require? I'm sure projected Big 12 TV revenue was included in paying off any debt incurred with this project. I can't believe they would spend September tearing up the ground putting in building footings only to have to stop everything in October when we no longer have close to what was budgeted from conference affiliation and TV money.

    Wouldn't that be great for recruiting, to have recruits walk by a weed infested construction site. We could tell them here is where you would have been training if only we could have stayed in a BCS conference.
