Great point. Hop had the dedicated facility all envied & then imploded.


Guys, any kid who picks a college/university in any non-revenue sport based on the field facilities, the swag, the locker room, the training table dining hall IS. A. KNUCKLEHEAD.

Any proud sports dad or mom who gets excitable about same IS. A. KNUCKLEHEAD.

Kids should pick a school based on the academics chops of the institution, the social offerings, for something that meets your geographic preferences & for athletic interests fits as a whole. Not all do. Duke’s facilities are awful. Harvard’s are below average. Cornell has lousy facilities. Georgetown, an up & comer in the sport, has diabolical facilities. All of those places have something to sell more important; they are excellent academic institutions. So is UVa. Our facilities, while not #1 on anyone’s list, are very good save for the temporary locker rooms. We’ve won 2 national championships with guys dressing in a temporary locker room. That’s a pretty good indication of how important this factor is (which is not at all).
