    Re: Tunnel

    Mid October.

    I'd guess we'll see them using it for Homecoming against Baylor.

    Re: Tunnel

    Does the tunnel go to the practice facility? Haven't paid much attention to it. Do just the Clones use it? Somebody give me an overview if you would.

    Just for our team. Cuts through the hillside and ends at the sidewalk. Does not connect to the new facility directly.

    Arrows indicate sidewalk locations
    Dotted line = tunnel

    Re: Tunnel

    I'm confused. It looks like it is angling toward the practice facility. Does it somehow tie into our locker room? I can't figure it out.

    They will exit the tunnel and walk on the wide sidewalk into their new facility with new locker room once available.

    Re: Tunnel

    I'm speaking from a position of knowing next to nothing about the tunnel, but from the diagram Aggie provided, I don't really get the point. Is it just a shortcut from the Jacobson Building to the Training Center that will save people, what, like 15 seconds on the walk between the two buildings?

    Re: Tunnel

    So they are underground from Jacobsen out of the stadium fence and then our locker room will eventually be housed in the FB Training Center? I guess I didn't even realize they were building the "Training Center". That building is attached to the Bergstrom I take it. Is that done or also under construction?

    It's under construction, for quite a while longer I think. It was just approved this summer.

    Provides a very low incline path to and from their new locker room on gameday.

    Yeah, that's true; I wasn't thinking about them having to actually walk up the hill without the tunnel. Good call.

    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    Re: Tunnel

    Why not make the tunnel come out at the back corner of the endzone?

    I think the placement of it is really stupid.
