    Our years and years of neglecting our facilities caught up to us long ago. We dug ourselves a hole I don't think we can get out of.

    Pretty f'n sweet. "thunderdome of power" was my favorite line. I also like the "in house pharmacy" -- aka one stop shop for roids ha ha! Seriously though how the **** are we supposed to compete with that **** dude?!! The Flatirons and Ralphie are cool but they only go so far bro. -- I think the sweetest thing was how the weight room and treatment center open right out onto the indoor practice facility.

    This is what having a big TV contract gives you, along with a stadium of 100k and HUGE donors. When I visited Knoxville it was unlike any college town I've been to, even Austin. If people think Texas takes their football seriously, well, you haven't seen the SEC. The fandom is 10x stronger, especially when you consider that Tennessee and other places have a smaller population base than Texas.

    it's true. i've lived most of my life in Boulder but also a couple years in Norman, OK and Nashville. no light escapes from the SEC universe. I went to Vanderbilt and all you read in the paper is SEC and Tennessee football. and then, Pat Summit UTENN "Lady Vols". there were never any stories or more than a boxscore for the Big 8.

    "Donny Boyce scores 25, CU wins." "Salaam totals 225, CU wins". with a box score.

    that was it.

    Okay, again, where are all these big time alumni donors for cu at? CU could have these things but are alums with big money could care less about football.

    You would think that we have to have at least one ridiculously wealthy football loving alumni... somewhere.

    **** all y'all. It's nice, but it is in Tennessee. Tennessee. Unless you have a penchant for dropping your deal in your sister's mouth, this doesn't mean ****. We're PAC 12, bitches. What happenned this year when the PAC 12 played TN, I forget.

    Pussies.

    You guys just don't get our plan. All of these schools are building these great facilities. But meanwhile, we just bide our time, saving our pennies. Then, in 20 years or so, afer all these programs have finished their building programs and their "new" facilities are beginning to age CU, the only remaining BCS school with facilities from the '90's, will build the newest, biggest, and best athletic facilities ever. It should all be in place by 2030 or 2035. THEN, my friends, CU will attract top recruits from around the world!!!

    This will be the first full size practice field in the NCAA built inside of a mountain. Dining hall will have 79 windows, peering out from the flatirons onto the lowly students below
