I don't get the need for this? Isn't practicing on your game floor the best place to practice? Brand new weight room in the same facility. What am I missing?
Make this happen
id spend the money with pacman jones at a strip club
in reality, i'd probably buy shares of under armour and not cash out until KA and Edsalt are gone
How many people can you assassinate with $60 million?
This should help with recruiting. Just needs a paint job

Hookers and blow.... Lots of both.
Spend 60 million on a clone of Gary Williams in his 30's.
You're an idiot. That's $30M a recruit. [/Hogie]

Simple answer here guys, I would buy Alabama's football team.
Screw $60 million, ima need like $500 million for my project:
Image 1, this is the centerpiece of the campus wide project:
-On the football/lacrosee practice field off of Stadium Drive goes a massive indoor practice facility. This could serve as a football only practice field or something like the Moshofsky Center at Oregon (http://www.goducks.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=500&ATCLID=205174864) which has facilities for other sports and hosts massive tailgates on gameday. Just to the south is the outdoor football practice field.
-In place of the two football practice fields adjacent to the Regents garage goes a massive student-athlete center. After scrapping that current joke of a varsity team house, you could rebuild it in its current spot but I think everything it houses could be moved to this new center. So basically this facility could house academic support, practice spaces (indoor track!?, wrestling, volleyball, baseball, whatever), weight rooms/sports medicine, administrative offices, etc.
-Obviously you do some legit ass landscaping outside of Gossett and next to the outdoor football field which would serve as a perfect spot for Gamedays frequent trips. As for the question mark around Shipleys infield, I don't know wtf to put there, maybe just make it some nice outdoor space or something since you've got massive building going in spots that were outdoor fields. And the other question mark by the teamhouse and parking lot, just make it into another nice outdoor space where you could host tailgate events (in massive tents pending weather).
-Switch the orientation of Ludwig, build the nicest on campus soccer stadium in the country. Next to it goes and outdoor track facility that you could utilize on gameday. Put a bubble over a couple tennis courts and complete renovate Cole to support our new varsity Ice Hockey teams(s?).
Image 3: Down by Comcast, you chop down a shit load of trees and build a sweet baseball stadium. You can also throw the basketball practice facility next to it if you want it on campus.

Why ya gotta make it look so easy? Love the concepts. By They way I would put the new Shipley right where you have and let the current Shipley serve as the most kickass intramural softball facitlity of any college in country. The Frats, Sororities and dorm teams would have a blast there.
New scoreboard at Comcast, increased recruiting budget, indoor practice facility for football, new performance center for non revs to share.
