Media Relations Press Release
January 24, 2013
The University of Alabama Athletics department has recently received board approval to begin construction of the Nick Saban Recruiting Complex to be completed in the fall of 2015. This 8.6 million dollar indoor-outdoor facility will be the first of its kind nationally and will be made available to all university men's and women's athletic teams. Still in the early stages of planning the facility will be a state of the art complex that will give potential student athletes a diverse array of activities while on their visit to Tuscaloosa. The complex will include the following:
*4 Paintball Courses
*Off-road BMX style Dune-Buggy Course
*4-Wheeler Nature Trail
*Indoor Laser Tag
*Go-Cart racing course
*Outdoor white-water rapids course
*Indoor rock-climbing wall
*Fishing Pond with cable-zip line jumping, canoeing and paddle-boats
*Indoor food court with Buffalo Wild Wings, Dreamland BBQ, 5 Guys Burgers and Fries, Brickhouse Pizzeria, Baskin Robbins and Starbucks.
The Board quickly moved to pass the construction project due to the aggressive paint-balling recruiting tactics of the University of Georgia and Mississippi.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Yeah, you are stepping on some very sensitive toes, there, bud. I'd watch my step here-on......RTR!
And the price tag on that would be more like 18 million, not 8 million......just saying.....vbg
Left out Chick-fil-a
Talk to the hand!
Dang it! Your right. And a Krispy Kreme.
That was great, thanks for the laugh!
What, no trail rides on the live elephant ?
Dreamland and baskin Robbins ins the same place? hahaha thanks for the laugh

When I read the OP, I knew someone would beat me to it!
Or, it has one room with two chairs and a table just large enough for a commitment letter to be signed, and a coffe maker. That's all CNS needs. OP, you forgot CNS doesn't need gimmicks on his side. He's got history and a helluva promise for the future.
Because everyone knows; "coffee is for closers!" Name that movie?
More like 40-70 million IMO
Still working on that elephant
Must have Yogurt Mountain!!!
Glengarry glen ross, in response to the name that movie question.
I was so excited telling my wife until I realized I was Forrest Gump...thanks for the smile
I can have fun with this. Thanks.
I have been waiting for them to add The Eliminator from American Gladiators. Cochran would love to incorporate it in the 4th quarter program.
You believe Saban is going let his players ice skate?...everything else I can see but ice skating is way too dangerous.
It's a shame that show is not on anymore. Who doesn't like to see the average joe get pummeled by a large gorilla or an amazon.
Too funny...this is thing is being reported on all the Bama sites now. Great job...lol
I'm slow is this real?
Yes...It is very real. When Nick Saban does recruiting complexes he goes hardcore. His way of flipping the bird to UGA. vbg
Clearly the ice skating rink is for the little sisters and girlfriends of the 5 star stud players...
