University Releases Plans for a Future Indoor Practice Facility

Recommended Posts

Look like it is take one of the practice fields...whew!  From the University of Oregon


"The University of Oregon has just released plans for a 170,000 square-foot indoor practice facility to be built just west of Autzen Stadium, between Leo Harris Parkway and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.


As currently conceived, the project features a 130,000 square-foot practice field and a 40,000 square-foot connector between the field and the Hatfield Dowlin Complex, home to football operations.


The connector features an expanded weight room and players’ lounge to provide dedicated spaces for student-athletes to prepare for games. Large windows would open from the players’ lounge to the practice field. Additional doors would open from the lounge to an exterior terrace, creating a flexible multipurpose space where the team could study and gather or host special events.

Additional landscape and pedestrian improvements are planned."

Privately funded, of course, and interestingly, will help when air quality is an issue. It is amazing how many times athletes are adversely affected by smoke and can't practice in the fall recently. Nothing a 130,000 sf practice facility can't take care of.

What is interesting is what’s not being said.  Oregon’s unique grasp on cutting edge intelligence, imagination and conception is producing the first major college football program to eliminate outdoor practice facilities in favor of a near sci-fi-like removal from an increasingly hostile environment.  The wave of the future? Wait and see.
