The Clemson Tigers aren’t sparing any expense when it comes to the university’s new $55 million football facility.
Matt Connolly of TheState.com reports the Tigers’ new football complex is close to completion. The 140,000 (!!!) square feet facility has a bevy of ridiculous, awesome and unnecessary features.
The facility should have no problem keeping football players close, as it contains all the amenities they need. Need a haircut? They’ve got a barbershop. Want to relieve some stress with games? There’s a bowling alley, laser tag, billiards, ping pong and basketball. For those students looking to work on their golf game, look no further than the indoor golf simulator. Want to catch the latest Marvel film? There’s a 24-seat HD theater at their disposal. There’s plenty of quality entertainment to be found off the football field.
For football players looking to train and recover, there’s a training and rehab facility, 50-person plunge pools in each locker room, a nutrition center and a dedicated nap room. Yes, a room which is solely for napping. Tigers’ players could easily live in the facility without experiencing any issues. My personal favorite inclusion into the facility is a recruiting war room. That’s some next level Game of Thrones shit.
The complex will be great for players but is the latest example of overspending at the college football level to impress recruits. Clemson probably could have allocated their resources more efficiently.
