Boris, Orlando: Greetings Mr. Spetman, I would like to know what is the latest on the indoor practice facilities? Thank you. Go 'Noles!
Randy Spetman: The indoor football practice facility remains one of our top priorities, but the simple truth is that now is not a great time to be out trying to do much fund raising. The economy has hit this University and all our fans hard and we are sensitive to the circumstances we are facing. The plans have been drawn up and the location has been selected. We would like to build the facility within the footprint of our current practice fields, which will require that we rotate one of the grass fields to run in the opposite direction it does now. We do have some seed money committed for the project and a number of interested donors, but are not at a point to announce any kind of time line. Here are some preliminary pictures that have been provided by Ellerbe Becket design firm.
