They don't call them gyms any more

I happened across a video of the University of Arkansas's "basketball performance center" nearly completion in Fayetteville. One gym each for men and women. Locker rooms. Lounges, Donor "balconies" to watch 'em sweat in practice.

It's the across way from Walton Arena, where the games are played.

The basketball center joins a football center (with hot and cold pools), in addition to Razorback Stadium. A baseball and track training center in addition to the stadiums for those sports. And don't forget the student-athlete success center, under construction. I think the idea is to go there for help with homework.

It's a slick video. Check it out.

Will the bass fishing team someday have a tournament lake and a performance center, too ?

I haven't yet found the Dead Poets Society clubhouse at Fayetteville.
