According to the article Threat posted, it has an atrium with a metric schyt ton of wow factor. As frustrating as its been to not have something like this for all these years, it really does look like its going to be badass when its done.

It's not going to be done in our lifetimes. With all the cost cutting and Chinese materials, there's going to be a significant safety incident (possibly including death) that's going to tie the whole thing up in court and cause a complete return to the engineering drawing board. Won't be anything but a shell with yellow tape around it for YEARS. Likely have to raze the whole thing and start over, and by then the whole project will probably just be scuttled.

The stench of Foley lives on. Perhaps this will be the incident that finally gets him in an orange jump suit and handcuffs, and behind bars where he belongs. Cost cutting at the expense of safety can land you a manslaughter charge.

Jboss giving a drunk rating should be grounds for a ban until October or so, like you used to do with Yorkie. Banned from talking shtt most of year and forced to return if at all when his bullshyt has been disproven on the field.

"the $85 million facility’s opening is set for the beginning of summer 2022, six years after the initial plans were announced."
So it's $85M now up from the original $65M. Prolly due to the increased cost of 2x4s.

Remember plans for that new Gators athletic facility? Progress after all these years.
Just a hunch, but I think this particular reporter knows absolutely nothing about football:

"To prove his point, Mullen brought in three of his larger players — 432-pound defensive linebacker Desmond Watson, 346-pound outside linebacker Ethan White and 354-pound outside linebacker Stewart Reese."

So we demolished the baseball field a year ago..... and we only have a year to go.

Meanwhile Bammer built an 85 million dollar expansion building in four months last Spring and Summer, during covid, which would be a spectacular time to build with nothing in the way and rock bottom prices.

Yes, there is no excuse for the way UF builds stuff. Zero. It’s embarrassing.

Wow, 0-3. Makes you wonder what facts she's gotten wrong in every other article she's written. She should be fired. Newspaper reporting is not for her.

At least we have a cool new SEC East Champs image on the wall. I'm sure the new facility, when it is completed in 2155, will have many such features. East Champs, Citrus Bowl Champs, thumb wrestling champs...etc.
