    Flaccid? That never happens in Stillwater. Boone has Pfizer make a big run of Viagra, only it's colored orange instead of blue, and keeps a bowl of them on every desk on campus, just like mints.

    For the ladies, he stocks every desk with mints.

    I guess to a certain degree, OSU got the ball rolling on this. I know several programs, including Alabama and the Vols visited BPS to see what we had done.

    Here's a video of our ACTUAL facilities, not schematic fly-throughs.

    Oklahoma State Football: Facilities - YouTube

    Oh, and our weight room is twice the size of yours...and we put our money into equipment, too.
    We still have nicer squat racks than you. A place where a football player spends 75% of his time in the weight room.

    Honestly, if somebody can show me a weight room anywhere in the nation that has the number of squat racks that are as hi tech and good as ours, I'm dying to know who has them.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Re: Oregon's new Football Facility

    After watching all those videos of Oregon's facility I come away with this.

    That facility was built to impress and wow, it does that very very well. While the architect discusses how it was designed for functional reasons in terms of how long it takes players to get to the field etc...it's clear to me that was done at a high level. Iowa State's was built to be as functional as possible and gets every aspect it can from everything.

    Examples. Our weight room layout vs theirs. The Narrow long set up they have takes much more time to switch between machines etc. Ours allows for quicker switches between workouts. Their Hot Tub that looks like an extension of the playboy mansion grotto has a very restricted access in and out, ours has an open design you can enter from all sides, an I believe looks like ours have larger capacities. Their lockers imported from Germany look very fancy, but ours have the same ventilation functions that theirs mentioned, and from the limited explanation of what they showed I bet ours is better thought out with the electrical outlets. Their meeting/auditoriums have a lot of things that look awesome (windows behind the presenter etc. I don't know about anyone else but I would space out the classroom window from time to time when there was one available. The coaches officer set up for studying tape etc seemed like it wasn't as well thought out in terms of function.

    Every aspect looks awesome. It's an awe inspiring facility. I would love to use it on a daily basis, but it looks like a architect, an interior designer, and a millionaire designed every aspect about theirs, and a football coach with an understanding of efficiency laid out the needs of ours and handed the requirements to an architect and project manager who knew both worlds.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Well said. CPR worked VERY closely with our football player construction PM. Yancy designed this equipment and if you are lucky, he will gladly explain all of the features. We spent what we had as well as we could.

    ISU's is as nice or nicer than LSU's. I've been through both.
