This Is What $16 Million Buys You

The Rose Bowl has completed a $16 million project to upgrade facilities, and if you're a UCLA player, you have to like the new digs. It seems like you could fit the Spruce Goose inside the Bruins' remodeled locker room, which is 110 feet long by 50 feet wide. We have reader Johnny to thank for sending along these shots.Coach Karl Dorrell may have an open door policy. Unfortunately, he's not in his office at the moment. Can I take a message?...
A ribbon of UCLA All-Americans stretches across the top of the lockers. The square footage for both the home and visitor locker rooms before the remodel was 7,876. Now it's 13,791. Combined, there are now 22 coaches lockers, whereas before there were none.
And stationed in each corner are large flat-panel TVs. Ten TVs and five game clocks adorn both locker areas. The media room, according to a UCLA release, has been increased from 1,825 to 5,676 square feet.

Nice digs, Bruins. I guess the Emerald Bowl loser's share is pretty sweet!

At UCLA we're all winners! Besides, we have 100 champioships, 75 of which are in sports your daughter can play!

Nothing says "we're confident you're our coach for the long run" like a magnetic nameplate.
