    Their weight room floor is made of "Brazilian hardwood." WTF? Iowa State does a great job of being dollar-wise with the funds we have, yet still trying to jump a few steps up in this crazy arms race in college sports. If I were a recruit, I would want to know if I have everything I need to develop to my athletic potential the same at ISU as anywhere else. I think we do that. As with all of our facilities - Sukup, Bergstrom, the new track, soccer field, and softball stadium - while they're not super fancy and opulent, they do say that ISU is very serious about sports and in competing.

    That isn't Oregon's football facility, it's Nike's.

    Sitting here trying to compare and contrast a facility built by a collegiate athletic program with one that was built by a multi billion dollar corporation is going to cause nothing but headaches.

I will get to see Tennesse's new facility later this fall - that one I'm really looking forward to.
    Have seen photos of Tennessee's and it looks unreal. Believe their's cost in the 40+million range.

    Re: Oregon's new Football Facility

    Some more on the "details" involved in Oregon complex:

    The locker room, coaches' offices, student-athlete cafeteria, players' lounge and meeting rooms are designed to flow together and are filled with high-tech gadgetry to enhance efficiency. The design team of ZGF Architects, Firm 151 and Hoffman Construction installed a number of unique features: The marble for the showers was imported from Italy, as was most of the building's furniture; the lockers (which are fully ventilated to eliminate lingering odors) are from Germany and feature coded keypads and a top shelf mounted with shoulder pads and a helmet that spring-boards toward the player; the seamless white floors in the locker room and cafeteria are poured from terrazzo, a composite that resists infection; the specific color pantones of Oregon's uniforms are threaded throughout the building (with green stitching in the chairs used by defensive players and coaches and yellow stitching in the chairs used by the offensive guys); the black-glass walls of the meeting rooms serve as writing boards; several other walls are lined in Nike football leather; the chairs of the auditoriums (yes, there are two) are done in Ferrari leather.

    Altogether, the complex promises to be a major draw for recruits. The facade is black glass meant to cloak the building in mystery while also providing bright sunlit spaces within; the designers call it "sunglasses." With this building, Oregon has declared without reservation that it is indeed "the University of Nike.'' Knight and his wife Penny, who declined to reveal the cost behind the project, maintained control of its design and construction in order to meet their standards before deeding ownership to the school. Just last Friday, Knight's right-hand man, Howard Slusher, the former agent, was unhappy with minor scuffs on the black slate floor (imported from Portugal) of the lobby. So, every piece was scheduled to be torn up and replaced.

    I'm going via the in-laws but yeah, I think it was right around 45 mil. I know Iowa's is close to 55 mil. I got to tour it this spring - at least the part that is done. Its very pedestrian - looks like a library to be honest. Considering what they are spending, they could have gotten more out of it. I saw Wisky's in 2007 after their upgrade in 2005. Stadium was decent, indoor facility was very meh. I think they are getting an update very soon.
