Where are we headed?

Article Image Alt Text

So is Nebraska’s new $155 football facility something for Husker fans to get excited about?
Is it a facility that is much needed, or simply much wanted?
Is it for student-athletes already on campus, or something to impress those 18-year-olds who happen to be taking a recruiting trip to Lincoln?
All fair questions given the fact that, bottom line, there’s so much money involved.
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m all in as long as all of the money comes from donations. That’s all fine and the players certainly deserve nothing but the best with all of the amount of time and energy they put in to the program 12 months a year.
And I realize that improvements need to be made. Ten years ago, Nebraska’s football complex and practice facility were regarded as one of the best, if not the best, in all of college football.
As it stands right now, the Husker program is fourth-to-last in football facilities, in the Big Ten alone.
Talk about an eye opener.
