The arms race in college football recruiting is a never-ending process, and indoor practice facilities are just one of the pieces of artillery that programs typically have at their disposal. Recruiting in the SEC is especially hyper-competitive, and the University of Florida announced plans today for a $15 million indoor facility, becoming the last program in the conference to construct or announce plans for such a building.
After capturing BCS national championships in 2006 and 2008 under Urban Meyer, Florida earned three more bowl victories from 2009-11 before falling off precipitously under Meyer's replacement, Will Muschamp. New head coach Jim McElwain will surely enjoy his stint in Gainesville coinciding with the development of a new practice facility that should provide a new selling point on the recruiting trail.
