Iowa will open the new Hawkeye Football Operations Center in the fall of 2014. Located a short walk from Kinnick Stadium, the 72,000 square foot facility features a three level Hall of Champions, meeting and player recreation areas, a weight room and a new indoor football field.
This is the kind of thing you hope schools are spending their network checks on. For Iowa, it means being able to show recruits a shining football cathedral instead of "the bubble."
We're also seeing more and more schools build interactive fan museums of sorts. While Ohio State doesn't necessarily need something like that, you have to wonder how much longer it will be until we see some type of public exhibit space at the WHAC.
