I'm think they'll do the basketball practice facility before the South Endzone renovation, unless a football specific donation hampers that.Anyone in the local area heard any news about this lately? I'm dying to see a better rendition of what the SEZ will look like. That is the one area of our stadium SEVERELY holding at back, aesthetically.
Not sure about Game Day plans at this point. As for the area vacated by football moving to the new building, from what I've heard (nothing official) the non football equipment staff will move their operations from the basement of Huff, to the former football area for equipment. I'm not sure if they will remodel some or not.So, does the locker room in this facility replace the one within the stadium itself? If so, are they going to shut down the space in between the facility and the stadium on gameday? And has there been any more discussion on what we're gonna do with the leftover space in our soon to be former football facilities?
Now that we're getting closer I'm curious about how this is all gonna work.
It included the stadium too I believe, but wasn’t the NW figure something like $270M they just spent on football facilities? We are not going to be anywhere close to that quality.There are a number of schools in the Big Ten that may not exceed it but, definitely come close.
I believe their Fieldhouse was built for other athletic programs as well, not just football. Plus they had to build a whole indoor practice field, we already have Irwin.It included the stadium too I believe, but wasn’t the NW figure something like $270M they just spent on football facilities?

That facility is for all of their sports. The thing that makes that one hard to top is that it is right on the lakefront with a view of the Chicago skyline. That probably also made it more expensive to build.It included the stadium too I believe, but wasn’t the NW figure something like $270M they just spent on football facilities?

Looks like a real building.
They should put a unique marker, or even just a Block I at the place along the roof where that I-Beam is located that everybody signed.
Just a bit of trivia to use for future Illini. Please feel free to forward this suggestion to Josh or other appropriate folks..
