    Utah's new 152,000 square foot Football Facility is now open.

    32 million bucks might only be middle of the (rich) PAC nice, but it's a huge step for the Utes.

    Looks like they made 32 million go a long ways. or at least from a presentation point of view.

    Looks pretty nice except for that video hallway thing; I thought it was going to give me a seizure.

    I agree, what a waste of space. Overall I thought it was a little plain but I was impressed, the meeting/film room looks particularly nice. There has to be diminishing returns on all these upgrades everywhere, right? I mean, at some point, everyone is going to have all the facilities. Is Alabama just going to start knocking down a seven year old facility for a new one?

    Charlie Monfort? of the Rockies Monfort paid for their film/meeting room? That means me buying a ticket to the Rockies inadvertently helped pay for for the Utah facilities. Just another reason to dislike the Rockies, Monforts, and myself!:lol:

    ****ing Monforts. Live your life here, make all your money here after your dad made all his money here, then donate to an out-of-state school. **** you.

    I'm sure they donate to UNC, I suppose. Not that anyone cares.

    I would say I'm going to stop giving their baseball team money, but I don't anyway.

    They give a ton to UNC and Greeley in general. Also CSU... I'm 100% they're a big part of CSU's new stadium

    Hopefully, CU will put together a better team of architects than Utah and Oregon did.

    Other than it looks like an evil fortress? Seriously their press conference room looks like a meeting room for an evil organization. Plus I hate them for having nicer things than us.

    DBT is too old to enjoy modern architecture. Not his cup of tea.

    Well all the more reason to hate them. Obviously it's not enough to force feed us pig slop baseball.

    Its a great facility, like I've said. I just think it is cold and corporate looking.

    I thought it was nice. Dal Ward is cramped. Every sport but the court sports work out in that weight room. 13? sports in one weight room? Ouch.

    Seriously WTF has the AD been doing the last 15 years? The only improvements in that time frame has been the bubble, a new locker room, new video boards, and random crap like new weight room floor/practice turf etc....

    East side boxes at Folsom. New practice facility for court sports. But I get your point.

    A shame it had to be the 15 years when the arms race took off all over the nation. In that time frame the university here expanded the football stadium by 17k + luxury suites, built an indoor practice facility, built a state of the art basketball arena that seats over 15k, gutted the baseball stadium and made it one of the largest and nicest in the country, created state of the art tennis facilities, and re-did all of the track and field area to make it look outstanding. And we're not talking a program rich off BCS bowl success and a T. Boone or a Phil Knight. We're talking a program that's the definition of mediocrity in both major sports over these past 15 years.

    This version is faster, better produced, and shows the facility better, including the weight room and individual team meeting rooms.
