One new schedule will feature five 1,000 mile road trips
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri's move to the SEC is expected to cost the school an extra $750,000 in travel costs.
Missouri's senior associate athletic director, Tim Hickman confirmed that the travel costs will be at least that.
"I think it will be at least that. It's a moving target. We're still evaluating and the feeling is that it's a little higher."
Trips to nearby states Iowa and Kansas will be replaced with trips east to South Carolina and Florida. Only games at Arkansas, Kentucky and Vanderbilt are expected to be trips taken via a bus.
According to the Post-Dispatch, the average roundtrip flight during their time in the Big 12 was 850 miles. In the SEC, their average trip will increase to 1,020 miles. The Tigers longest trip will be the 1,694 trek to Gainesville, and five other trips will crack the 1,000 mile mark.
Getting a feel for the new travel specs is expected to take about two cycles before they iron out all the kinks.
"This is a great example of needing to go through two cycles. We think we can predict the time of how long it will take to get to Gainesville (Florida) and all that stuff, but until you actually do it in all sports for two years, we won't have a good feel for that."
(Updated with Pics & Video) USC's impressive John McKay facility
The facility will serve as the main hub for USC coaches and players and will house a 32,000 square foot weight room, and 18,000 square foot training room on the basement level. The new weight room will be three times the size of the previous area, while the training room will add about six times the square footage. That's quite an upgrade.
Above the weight room and training room, on the main floor, will be the academic center with access to tutors, study rooms, and computer access. The second floor will house the football coaches offices, team meeting rooms and a video production area.
Kiffin and the staff are already familiar with the building, as they were allowed to start moving in at the end of July.
