DIGGING FOR GOLD: In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman reports the Univ. of Minnesota in December will break ground on a $70M football facility that will "include not only a modern indoor practice facility but coaching offices and other amenities for the program." The current facility, the Gibson-Nagurski Football Complex, was built in '85 for $5.5M, but the building "simply can no longer serve the needs of the team." The current practice facility is "12,000 square feet and was recently renovated" for $1M. It "includes a practice field, along with the football offices, training/treatment areas and student tutor centers." Meanwhile, the "word is there will be a basketball practice facility built in the near future as well, with more facilities to be built as fundraising progresses" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 3/27).
