Football Performance Center


Recommended Posts

Super nice! This should help recruiting. I like that we now will have two full sized practice fields, and that the new indoor practice field can open up to them. I also like that Auburn is finally getting a new weight room. the old one looked like a high school weight room.

Auburn's new Football Performance Facility is now open for bid.  It has been designed by the architectural team of Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood of Montgomery with support from HOK Architects of Kansas C

And in their spare time they'll be able to strategize against Palpatine and The Empire  

Brian Harsin already having an impact! We appear to be giving out Subaru Outbacks or Foresters rather than Dodge Chargers and Challengers like Bama  Definitely some PNW flair on that dealership a

Not sure what high school you (or your kids) went to, but I have never been in, around or seen a HS weight room at the level of AU.  Sure it is not the same as our competitors, but no way is it HS level.

My opinion of facilities is that they are both necessary and disgusting at the same time.

I'm right there with you. We have to keep up, but.......This is further separating the football team from the rest of the university. Add in the extra benefits that they're going to get now with endorsement deals. Students are already well on their way to not caring at many universities. Keeping moving the revenue sport athletes into a more and more privileged, set apart class and the separation will be complete. 

Yeah, sure it's being built with donations. But it's a gift that eats, and our tuition dollars will go for maintenance, keeping the lights on, updates, paying for extra staff, etc. Soon enough, the camel's back will break. Within a generation, CFB will be gone I think.

What does the rendering look like from Wire Road and Samford Ave.?  
 

that is a huge opportunity to make a statement.  More Glass and Glitz on a major intersection.   
 

Even the corner of Samford and Biggio needs to wow.  First impressions are critical.   This needs to wow on the outside as much on the inside.

Which just adds into the nonsense rhetoric that there isn't enough money to pay football players.  Coaches salaries is another.

I've seen we might be paying Bobo 2 million?

What? No lazy river or bouncy castle? Do we want recruits to come here or not?!

 

In all seriousness, it’s fine. I agree that the exterior is nothing special-it looks like every other building that has been at Auburn for years minus a few updates. The barber shop is awesome. The pool room is kind of neat, but you’d think for that kind of money you could do better than a few pool tables. At least it’s an upgrade. And I’m not a recruit, so who cares what I think

Does anyone know where the HC's office will be? I looked on the schematic, but couldn't find it. Just wondering how nice and big it will be.

And I agree, I wish Auburn would  not think that EVERY building HAS to have the same architectural appearance. I wish the outside had more 'flash' than a HS building look.

Also, I wonder what will be the new Tiger Walk path will be? What streets will it now use?

If Gus had a say it would be a solid brick wall to keep everything top secret with some cheesy slogans on it

How does this compare to other facilities at Oregon, Alabama etc...?  Seems like this is an arms race and it really matters to recruits.  To me it looks amazing.

I googled most of the SEC's football operations centers, and I looked at what they had. From what I can see ours will be as good as anyone's, and better than most. There are a few like Alabama, Georgia and Florida which are or will be larger. What makes them larger is they include recruiting centers and dining halls. We already have those things, but they are separate from the performance center. As far as the outside of the buildings everyone was complaining about, nobody had one that stood out in that area much. They are all just buildings like on campus.

I like the brick.  Classic,  simple,  and will not  go out of style.

How many indoor practice fields will Auburn now have?

And yes the outside is horrendously ugly, we need more red brick!

hopefully the building will still be new and ahead of the game when finished.

Well it doesn’t, very forgettable architecturally. And Auburn has one of the Top Architecture school in the country. Been interesting to have had them involved. For that amount of money I would demand a relook at the exterior. The architect is not known for anything outstanding really. Basically safe off the shelf design.

People are complaining about our exterior but take a look at bammers not really sure how we could make our exterior with more of a SPLASH. Don't get me wrong it does look sorta boring from the outside but what would you recommend it look like from outside. Honest question

Very cool!

Regarding the exterior, we need to keep it consistent with the timeless, AUsome architecture of the rest of campus.   Trying to get too cute or trendy will only result in something that will look dated.

I have to agree with @AUDevilthe exterior does not impress me at all. I get matching the school's aesthetic but I think you could do that while appearing a little more grand. 

I love Oregon's and even Clemson's 

The interior doesn't appear to have a lot of big open spaces but instead is packed with more practical use of each space.

The flight simulator is cool! Barbershop is a must lol. Hydrotherapy is an absolute must. 

Hopefully in practice it looks better. Just happy we're finally getting it done.
