07:24 AM ET 08.01 | While perhaps a matter of taste, Oregon may have raised the bar when it comes to facilities design. [The Ducks] have released photos showing the first glimpses inside their new $68 million Football Performance Center, an opulent 130,000-square foot, six-floor structure that includes offices, team video theaters, offensive and defensive strategy rooms, a coaching conference suite, a video editing center, a dining hall and a weight room. More than anything, the facility is the latest asset for the Ducks in a recruiting arms race. The structure is to the west and north of the Casanova Center, Oregon's athletic administration building that is adjacent to Autzen Stadium. Media will be allowed in the building for the first time on Monday, and we'll have video and more photos at that time.

Nice facility. Not well thought out though - the Brazilian hardwood floors will rub the activists the wrong way.

Maybe not. According to the neon sign in the cafeteria, they 'eat their enemies'.

Texas went out of style about 5 years ago. But they don't have that kind of money to build such an opulent palace. Will just stick with band aid upgrades to an old and crumbling facility.
