New home team facilities
Approximately 2,000 new club seats
New press facilities
A team store

Should see some big changes with UKs facilities in the future it sounds like. The recent addition with the basketball dorm I believe?, and then didn't they announce that Rupp is being renovated a few months ago?

The big renovations to Rupp are being tabled for now, but they did renovate the locker rooms. Pretty sweet now.

Put $110 billion into a landfill, you've still got a landfill.

That seems to be the case. Gotta get some talent in the program to move the needle.

Big recruiting weekend for the Cats coming up.
