Indoor practice facilities have been sprouting up like D.R. Horton tract houses these last few years. Sucks to be us.

Re: How is our Volleyball Complex Coming Along?

IPFs seem to start around $15 million (SC's) and range up to about twice that (Georgia's). Marshall's cost around $24 million.

I'd like to say, "USM should build one," and it's not like Marshall's that much richer than USM, but there are other needs as well. So I don't think USM's problem is the lack of an IPF so much as it is a structural inability or unwillingness to run a reasonable athletic budget.

That article is 4 years old. It'd be tough to build one at today's costs for less than $20 million. So basically, our entire athletic budget. Then the issue of where to put it. The only logical place seems to be on top of one of the 2 current practice fields, thus leaving you with only 1 outdoor field. Doesn't seem ideal but I would take if it meant we could get an IPF.
