Alabama Building $2 Million ‘Recruiting Lounge’
« on: February 13, 2018, 01:25:25 PM »
According to several experts, the Crimson Tide had a down year on the recruiting trail compared to classes from years past.  Alabama’s board of trustees has now approved a proposal for a $2 million recruiting lounge. Here are the specifics on the new facilities according to the Tuscaloosa News.

The recruiting lounge will be in 7,447-square-feet of renovated space on the first and second floors of the Mal Moore Athletic Facility. The lounge will primarily be used for football recruiting.

The work will include upgrading finishes, enhancing audio/visual systems, new lighting, and new graphics and furniture. The preliminary budget is $2 million. The project will be funded with Crimson Tide Foundation funds. Davis Architects of Birmingham will design the renovation.

Indeed it is barely a drop in the bucket for the millions bouncing around BAMA. But dayum...a lounge, not even an entire building. Ok, Bama...yo $$$  ain't mad...just wish my school had it.

This lounge is the type of projects DI schools does. If you cannot do these things, then you are not a DI school. It is that simple. Now watch how many people on this forum have something smart to say about what I just said.

We are DII and we know it. And like all DII schools we use whats available. How abut ya'll? But playing in a public facility is nothing to be ashamed of. There are many DI programs around the country using public facilities.

Shoot, sometimes, I wish we were still playing in the renovated Lakewood Stadium instead of B.T. Harvey. I HATE a 1-sided-stadium  ::)  It just looks....incomplete.
