Hunter Yurachek is admittedly bias when it comes to describing the latest addition to the athletic department’s portfolio of new facilities. “I think this is the nicest in the country,” Yurachek, the vice president of intercollegiate athletics, said recently as he stood near midfield at the University of Houston’s $20 million indoor football practice facility. UH used the facility for the first time during last week’s bye week in the schedule, a “big step’ in closing the gap with the so-called Power Five conference schools, coach Major Applewhite said. The 80,000 square feet, football-specific facility comes with just about everything you would expect – high-tech video board, seven remote-controlled cameras to catch practice from every angle and a 120-yard synthetic playing surface. There is an additional 25,000 square feet that can be used for offensive and defensive line breakout drills and on-site control room that can relay video from practice at the push of a button. – Joseph Duarte, houstonchronicle.comRead More
