    Outside looks like all the brick is done or about done. The glass front in the center isnt done yet. I saw it last on saturday so they may have been able to do more today.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    I saw I think it was the CycloneMBB twitter page that the womens side already has murals done. Anyone know what murals they're putting in, sounds pretty cool if they're giant Iowa State murals.

    My Granddaughter, the most beautiful 11 month old lives, a block away, my youngest son is playing soccer in the Iowa Games. I will see if I can poke around and post a few pictures.

    This is really a cool deal. The only program in the state I believe that can say we have one of these and we were the first.

    Yeah, I live out there in an apartment close by, and it looks like it's about done. They got that up pretty quickly, I only started noticing construction a few (maybe February) months ago.... Either way, looks cool.

    Re: Basketball practice facility

    I walked through the facility today and it is really coming together. It is an awesome facility. Incredible technology has gone into the building. Everything can be run from ISU's central computers. The players don't have to turn the lights off or lock the doors, all that can be done remotely. All the heating and everything is controlled off site. All entry is controlled by touch pads. It can keep track of when a player enters (who that player was) and when they leave. The hardwood gym flooring is being laid on the women's side and subfloor will start going down on the men's side next week. The locker rooms are really nice and film/theatre room is going to really cool. Just a little snapshot but it has turned out to be an awesome building. I would be throughly impressed if I was a recruit walking through it. It will be a great tool for the Basketball programs.
