In the midst of a California budget crisis USC decided to build the most comically over-the-top athletic center from sea to shining sea. Here are some images from the 70 million, 110,000 square foot facility; without which the entire program might have come tumbling down to mediocrity. All images are courtesy of USCTrojans.com, you can see a full photo gallery here.
The USC football team meeting room. Because what football team could learn without a mural of their cities skyline?
This is the atrium of the John McKay Center.
Find me the study hall on campus that has rosewood floors.
35 yards of indoor turf just because.
This is a beautiful weight room, but also the most “common” aspect of the facility.
I believe this is part of the trainers area – either that or a barber shop.
And if the facility doesn’t get the recruits, here is the vault where we keep all the money.
For those romantic walks to and from practice.
Celebrating a coach who cheated and then ran before sanctions came down on him, what a hero, lets make a plaque.
Ha, sweet picture.
And finally, what football facility would be complete without the outdoor firepit lounge?
