The new lease runs through 2033. Coach John Calipari called it a win-win for all parties and athletic director Mitch Barnhart said its a good day for Kentucky.

We didnt want to go any place else, Barnhart said. We wanted to be there. I dont think theres anybody in the world today who sits there and says, Hey, we want to take on a $300 million arena when weve got a wonderful, tradition-rich facility that weve been playing in for 40 years.

June of 2014: a plan for a $350 million renovation for Rupp Arena and the adjacent convention center was halted. Kentuckys current lease wouldve ended in 2018, but any questions about the universitys long-term plan for Rupp Arena or a separate facility have ended.

A video board and new sound and lighting systems were installed prior to this season, but future renovations as part of this new deal   include four individual UK entertainment or club suites and replacing all bench seats with chair backs in sections 228-234 and 211-217, an upper-deck area. The renovations should be completed by the start of the 2018-19 season.

...new facility will be a 44,000-square foot, multi-floor building with recruiting space for football and Olympic sports, a new club level for fans and a new press box. The project also includes a renovation of Auburns existing locker room.

Over the last several years, the Athletics Department has been developing plans for improving Jordan-Hare Stadium to enhance the game day experience for fans, students and players, the executive summary for the project reads. As a result of this detailed planning effort, two of the highest-priority projects for the Stadium are the development of a larger and greatly improved recruiting facility and enhancements to the home team locker room, for game day support.

The estimated cost of the project is $28 million, and it will be financed by the Athletics Department. If approved, construction will begin May 2017 and conclude July 2018.

Auburn has discussed renovations of Jordan-Hare Stadium over the last several years, but no plans have gone forward until now. Last year, Auburn athletics director Jay Jacobs said any renovations wouldnt begin until the 2018 season, as Auburn hosts both rivals Georgia and Alabama in 2017.

Re: construction of a south end-zone facility at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field.

Missouri Board of Curators approved the hiring of an architect for the project by a 5-1 vote. By passing the measure, the board authorized design costs of $4.31 million already raised by Mizzous athletic department through private donations.

The project has an initial budget of $96.7 million. The athletic department collected about half that total through fundraising.

Memorial Stadium opened in 1926 and has seen numerous upgrades in recent years. The south end zone area had been open for years before grandstands and video scoreboards were added. The north end zone is best known for its grass expanse containing a large block-letter M.

The south-end renovation will include a training facility for the Tigers football team.

The lone dissenting vote was by Curator Pamela Henrickson.

Project is expected to include moving the locker rooms to the west side of the stadium, and adding a recruiting room next to the locker rooms.

This will be the biggest facilities project at UGA since the building of the indoor athletic facility

Smart has mentioned that the current locker rooms, located on the east end of the stadium, are the same ones he dressed in as a player in the late 1990s.

The recruiting room would then be adjacent to the new locker rooms, which would make it more convenient for coaches. The project would also include improvements to public restrooms and other facilities close to the west end zone area.

Trae Youngs family invited Jason Jordan into their home as they discussed Youngs six finalists: Kentucky, et al.

The Pros: The Pros

The Con: Youngs mother revealed a surprise: Kentuckys Coal Lodge is the worst dorm of the schools Young is considering.

But the housing Theyve got the worst dorms out of all the schools, his mother said.

Yeah they did, Trae says with a laugh. But to Coach Cals point, you dont pick a school based on the housing.

Yeah, but youve gotta live there for nine months, Candice replies. I mean come on now it was one room, the sink was in the bedroom; definitely traditional old school dorm room.

Yeah, the rooms couldnt compete with Kansas, Oklahoma State and those other schools, Trae says. Its not up to date.

Often referred to as the gold standard in college basketball, the $8 million Coal Lodge opened five years ago in 2012.

Well have the best college baseball facility in the state of Kentucky and it will be one of the premier college baseball facilities in the country, Mingione said. Will it be the biggest? Nope, it wont be the biggest. But it will be the right one.

Kentucky has played at Cliff Hagan Stadium since 1979. The new stadium is being ushered in with Mingione as the new face of the program. Mingione spent the last eight seasons as an assistant at Mississippi State. The Wildcats are off to a 4-5 start in his first year.

Compare it to someone else, McGarity said. Everyone compares it to Alabama. Compare it to Tennessee, compare it to LSU. So I think what happens is so many people refer to one place. There are 12 other schools in the league. Lets compare to others. Some better. Some dont have what we have.

While theres some truth to what McGarity says, thats not what fans with national championship aspirations want to hear. After all, the path to the College Football Playoff likely includes a victory against the Crimson Tide in Atlanta until someone proves otherwise.

Georgia has unveiled drawings for planned renovations that it hopes will change the energy at Stegeman Coliseum.

The plans include the long-awaited center-hung scoreboard, new seats that will all be black, a new sound system, and lighting to improve the atmosphere.

The improvements were approved last year, at a cost of just over $6 million, and are the second phase of a renovation project. The first phase was before this past season, at a cost of just under $2 million, included the large mural on one side of the arena.

Stegeman Coliseum opened in 1966. This is the latest renovation to the facility, which had air conditioning put in for the 1996 Olympics...

Steve Cannon, CEO of Atlanta Falcons parent company AMB Group said on Tuesday that the stadiums opening has been pushed back from July 30 to Aug. 26. The downtown stadium was originally supposed to open on Mar. 1. That date was moved to June 1. Then the June 1 was pushed to July 30, and now its postponed to Aug. 26.

The stadiums retractable roof remains to be the central cause in the delay.

Atlantas professional soccer team had a July 30 home game in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. That game will now be played at nearby Georgia Tech on July 29, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. City officials are now aiming for the Falcons preseason game vs. the Arizona Cardinals on Aug. 26 as the stadiums debut.

The NFL announced last week that Atlanta will host Super Bowl 53 on Feb. 3, 2019.

Before then it is scheduled to host the SEC championship game.

ATHENS There was a threat of rain on Tuesday, which in years past every year, to be exact would have caused vexation and frantic planning among the Georgia football teams staff and players: Cancel practice? Gut it out in the rain? Take a bus to Flowery Branch to the Atlanta Falcons facility?

But on Tuesday, no one worried. The team just went into its bright and shiny indoor facility, for its first full-fledged practice there.

Some guys might tell you theyre happy for the rain day around here, tailback Nick Chubb said, meaning those wanting a day off. But thats over with.

Thats not the only thing thats over with for the Bulldogs. While not everything is convenient yet parking for the players around the football facility is still lacking the arrival of the indoor facility closed two eras: The long one of having the weather ruin practice plans, and the year of having to bus to practice.

This time last year the team was bussing to every spring practice, as it also had to do during the season. While the indoor facility was under construction in 2016, the team practiced at a makeshift set of practice fields off Milledge...
