From a functional standpoint, ours will be top shelf. Architecture, color schemes, and accessories are kind of up to personal opinion. If you like orange and white, and you're considering playing at Tennessee - there will be no better training facility in the country. If you prefer green and yellow, or orange and black; well you may have something to think about.

I doubt it will be in the same neighborhood as OK State's or Oregon's, but it should be one of the best ten or so.

Oklahoma State has by far the best-funded college football program in the country, and it ain't anywhere near close. Their football budget is well over twice that of UT's IIRC.

I remember seeing the link a while back. I do remember that Pickens made a single gift of $165mil a few years back for the athletic facility there.

EDIT: Found it, got it confused with revenue via donation. UT drew $26.4mil in donations for the year reported, while OkSU received $54.9mil. Their overall revenue is only a couple mil behind UT, but Pickens donations single handedly put their athletics budgets in line with the big boys. Florida, UT and Bama are the only SEC programs outspending Okie Lite for entire AD budgets.

Sherman Smith Center

Based on this video that I found on OSU website, I don't see how it is even close to comparable to what UT is building.

It isn't. We are claiming it is the best (I agree) and the virtual tour and video is incredible.
