SMU Unveils Plans for New Indoor Practice Facility
The Ponies held their 2016 pro day at Southlake Carroll High School's indoor practice facility. The Ponies are building their own now. The Indoor Practice Facility will have a full sized football field, indoor track and a new grass practice field next to the facility.
The timing is interesting as, in case you haven't heard, the Big 12 is taking applications for new members and their is nothing AD's love more than cranes and building stuff. SMU is also building a new swim center and completed a massive refurbishment of Moody Coliseum for the basketball teams.
Pictures of the facility are here, the project is 80% funded and should be ready 16 months after building starts.
