Video Tour: TCU's new facilities under construction

TCU is putting the finishing touches on some impressive upgrades to Amon G. Carter Stadium.

Included in those upgrades are six suites worth $15 million a piece...all paid for and located just 11 rows up from the field. Best seats in the house without a doubt.

The press box has room for 125 reporters, and the new players "community room" is full of nice chairs and flat screen TV's that plays the 2011 Rose Bowl nonstop. Add that to the upgrades in the locker room and weight room (19,000 square feet) and you've got yourself a heck of a facility to break in Big 12 play.

In the clip, Gary Patterson admits that during construction he sometimes had to shut his blinds in his office because the construction that was taking place was mesmerizing.

As Bryan Curtis of Grantland explains, you take the money that the football program earns and surround your players with it. Or as he puts it, "When you can’t pay your football players, you build them a man cave."

While the clip below shows much of the project still under construction back in May, you can tell that the Horned Frogs will have quite a man cave ready for use when they enter the fall of 2012 and Big 12 play.
