If any program south of the Sun Belt needs an indoor facility, it's probably Florida State. Not only do the Seminoles deal with the typical Gulf Coast heat and humidity, there are also the regular rain and thunderstorms to reckon with. As Andrea Adelson details in this ESPN.com story, "Each afternoon is filled with a thunderstorm, many of them accompanied by lightning. There have been years where the Seminoles lost 10 days of work during fall camp because of lightning."
At long last, the Albert J. Dunlap Training Facility is almost here. The finishing touches still must be added, but most of the pieces are in place. At a price tag of $15 million, the facility will provide a full 120-yard field, a training room, storage space and, most importantly, the ability to hold a dry practice every afternoon.
Take a first look at the facility below.
