Facilities are getting out of hand ($). Check out Clemson's new football headquaters.

These types of upgrades make recruiting very difficult for schools without the cash or schools not willing to spend it. President Trollela going cheap for 10 + years almost killed us.

We need our IPF to be build like yesterday.

This is what schools with $$ and nothing to do there have to build to attract kids. Just swing ours though South Beach and KOD and I think kids will take that over this giant facility.

even if we had the money and willingness, that building would fit in like one spot on campus, and that spot will never be taken because it's the only green space available for regular students to use.

Throw them in the car, drive 15-20 minutes and show them how many gorgeous women line up just to get into LIV night club on Friday nights

Their football only facility(barbershop, lockeroom, slide, dining table, lounge area, basketball court and Other things will cost 51 million meanwhile miamis indoor practice facility will cost 34 million which includes a new weight room, coaching offices and will be a big upgrade for our football team.If shalala would have pushed facility upgrades in particular the ipf years ago when UM was rolling in money in the early 2000s or in the past decade when the school raised all of that money for the momentum campaign we wouldn't have to worry about building the ipf. However that's miamis most needed addition at this point. Miami does have some advantages over a bunch of the other schools including the fact that it's in a beautiful campus area. On top of that the Hecht center is being updated, schwartz center opened a couple years ago, the new state of the art 100 plus million lennar foundation medical hospital just opened a few weeks ago and it's aesthetically pleasing to campus visitors. Miami is also about to undergo a 100 Million student housing renovation when that proposal pass to have state of the art dorms. I'm sure we are going to be hearing more about upgrades pretty soon. With the acc bowl payout, adidas money coming in and other donations miami should be in the position to add some more things fairly soon here

Miami has cash, they recently just started to spend it... Shalala is no longer here anymore the money is being spent

People acting like South Beach is what the players are all about. Small fish in a big pond, that's all they would be there....never mind the money needed aspect.

Miami is vastly different than the traditional college atmosphere. It isn't for everyone, but for those it is they call it home. Start winning, that's how we competed with the big dogs of the world and the way we'll have to do it again.

Start pumping draft picks in the NFL again. On top of the illegal money, bama is getting guys 1st round deals. We need to evaluate better, and coach em up. Im convinced we got half of the puzzle completed with Diaz and the defensive staff. Need offense to take the same leap.

Yeah facilities are nice, but at the end of the day it comes down to how coaches develop players and how motivated players are themselves to get better. Facilities aren't the end all be all. If they were we wouldn't win the recruiting battles against the power 5 schools we've been winning.

If it was all about facilities Oregon would have several national championships.

hahahahahhaha spoken like someone who has zero fun. let me tell you about every other **** college football town in America… they are NOT MIAMI! **** them lol they can keep the putt putt and ping pong. i'd rather put a gun in my mouth than spend the best years of my life thinking that's where i go to have fun. hahahahaha Miami is HEAVEN if you like to LIV! Miami and some parts of Cali… the best. That's why people who can afford to be anywhere, choose these places to party and live. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-veTvuvjwYE

That fact that our IPF still hast broken ground yet is annoying
It's only like 2 million dollars away from being fully funded. Probably less than that

Why does it have to be fully funded? Serious questions.

I assume 2 million dollars can be raised by the time we're done or even half into building.

Who knows? Uga started building theirs when it wasn't fully funded

Recruits don't care about that $h!+ like you think they do...The bagman is what we should be worried about...every p5 school has decent enough facilities to pass the eyeball test....
