Is the whole place open to all students, or just parts? I hear them mentioning that they can go to the lounge in between classes. Because I don't understand why they need 120 lockers and a fucking huge ass theatre.

So this facility is opening sometime this year? Since the video was posted last May.

EDIT: On a side note the other videos from CreativeAnimation1's channel are also pretty interesting.

You have 53 or so players on a team plus a practice squad and all the staff. This will only be for players and staff. I l: lol at the in house pharmacy. As if that's not going to be abused.

This new facility is for Volunteers Football players and staff only. It will open this summer, while the old Neyland-Thompson Sports Center that football operations was run out of will be converted to space for all the other sports and womens teams to share.

They need that many lockers because div 1 teams like Tenn can have up to 105 players on their roster, obviously some of those players won't be active/dressed and there are traveling roster restrictions for away games.

The huge theater is needed for team video sessions, to go over game plans and scout other teams. All NFL/NHL/etc.. pro teams also have video facilities/rooms as well.

This is not government funded. It's private money and the money the university makes off the team. Plus they don't pay the players.

It actually is nicer than some NFL facilities. For example Oakland and Miami have some older training facilities. NCAA football is big time business, in addition you also have alumni donating money to the football programs, Peyton Manning gave $1million towards building this new Volunteers Football facility.

It is. The coaches get paid a lot more than NFL coaches too.

The Seahawks actually have one of the nicer training facilities in the NFL, helps when your owner is Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft). Built right off Lake Washington, its beautiful lake front property/views, I know when they bring in free agents to recruit, they sometimes fly them in by float plane to the VMas training facilities after they visit the stadium.

http://www.seahawks.com/team/facilities/vmac.html you can compare it here to U of Tenn, Tenn is much nicer.

how can a college have the most advanced training facility in the country? that's saying getting drafted into the NFL would be a step down.

You really don't understand the scope of NCAA football. They draw insane revenues from ticket/merchandise sales, tv contracts, licensing rights, advertising/sponsorships, donations from alumni and boosters all the while not having to pay any of their athletes.

In the US, I would rank NCAA football only behind the NFL in current popularity and revenues. I would say it is definitely more popular than the NHL, NBA and MLB now.

I wouldn't say getting drafted into the NFL is a step down because the players get pro salaries. NFL facilities are nice, for example the Seahawks, and the Colts and Jets also have brand new facilities too. U of Tenn is nicer because its brand new being built now and the money they have to put towards it.

^ adding to that, I remember hearing last week during one of the first round march madness games that the higher seed brought in 35min in revenue while the lower seed team brought in 300k. I can't remember the exact teams but definitely remember the names. Compare that to what we have... can't even get our university sports broadcasted on tv because there is absolutely no market for them.

the colleges are like free training for the nfl without them having to pay salaries so it makes sense if they donated some $$$ to the top schools too (if they do)

To put it in terms most Canadians can understand, College football in the American south is as big as hockey is in Canada popularity wise, but financially speaking it's even bigger due to the population difference.
And besides, what's so hard to understand, firstly they're a country of 300+ million people, and also all that money they receive from different types of contracts and deals, and they DON'T have to pay their athletes multi million dollar contracts, it just goes to the school funds....
and then on TOP of all that, you have a LOT of backroom private funding from people that for bigger programs like Ten amounts up to literally millions and millions of dollars

no wonder some college coaches earn WAY more than the NFL coaches and they have facilities like this

Second best thing about college ball is tailgating and partying in the stands with all the 17-24 students..... notably the sorority sections. I'd have killed to go to university and played in the US but it was too expensive

I went to a Michigan football game last year..

111,000 fans.
We did the whole tailgating thing. Got there at 7am and left completely wrecked. Everyone was super friendly and just there to have a good time.
I wish we had something even remotely similar. The closest we had was the olympics and the nhl playoff run.
To compare, this was just a regular seasoned game.
It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life
