    I wonder who they have listed on the walls of the meeting rooms.

    I don’t know if it’s a copyright issue, as to the way that pictures from Twitter are posted. But, when they are uploaded to a post the way they are here, they are not viewable from work computers with social media blockers. Would be nice if they could be posted a different way, but if it’s a copyright issue, I completely understand. Looked at pictures on the app, LOOKS AMAZING! Big boy football!

    Seems pretty extravagant for a Pokemon Go training facility

      Sickening, really? There are a lot of sickening things in this world, and if this is on your list, I hope its on the bottom of it. You might need to let go of some of that anger towards a logo, it’s really not that big of a deal to be sickened by.

    That is awesome. Pretty much everything a college kid wants. Barber shop, phone chargers, movie theater, comfy chairs, their own cafe. If you’re gonna spend 100 hours a week in there, might as well be comfortable. I’m betting our recruiting rankings shoot up pretty soon.

      I think I read its some guy named Art Vandalay. Impressive work Mr. Vandalay.

      Is that the same art vandalay from the human fund? Ross Tarrant of Lexington was the architect

    Wow! Absolutely amazing. This will be a huge selling point during recruiting. No expense spared. UK Football will be relevant in the very near future. Props to Mitch Barnhart and the University for investing in the future of the program.

    I really would not have took the check NO matter the amount. We definitely need a different drink. UK training facility is no place for ANYTHING called Gatorade. BOOOO !!!
