The indoor field looks awesome. Why do they need iPads by their lockers though? Seems kinda like a waste of money. Weightroom is nothing special, but it looks nice enough. The building itself is pretty nice.

For when they walk potential recruits through on tours.

Tennessee's new facilities are pretty sweet as well. I'll post pics when it's completed fully in December.

Yeah, one of my friends who is playing at SC said that the playbooks are uploaded into the Ipads and they have each day's practice schedules as well. 100+ million dollar facilities, damn.

You're right, maybe they were thinking 100 for the original price. They might of caught a break ;)

Holy F, thats incredible. Definitely a nice pitch for recruits, which is what it boils down to.

Well it seems like almost everyone has a state of the art facility like that these days...SC's facilities were actually falling off a little bit, they needed it.

That underground field could become troublesome if your QB bombs a pass too high though.

I doubt they'll be throwing 50 yard passes in there. Looks like a good place for smaller drills that we see at the combine. Everything else can be worked on outside in the beautiful SC weather.

The underground field is mainly used for walk through's and what not and like TJ said, they do some testing sometimes down there because its right next to the weight room.

Very nice facilities. Can't hurt your pitch haha

I don't actually see them using that practice field for passing and such. It's probably more used for sprints and other work outs. The yards just make it easily measured out.

very cool....but i agree that the ceiling on the underground field looks way too low....no kicking/punting down there and no lollipop passes!

haha, yeah, that makes sense considering it's only part of a field if you look closer.
