Maybe not enough for kick off... But we need it to be big enough for field goals at least... Right?

AD is finalizing the IPF.

1. It will be 120yd football field

2. The clear ht will not be there for kicking..to $$$

3. It will go on the second outdoor practice field that is on the backside.

4. A structure will be built to expand the current offices and facilities and the IPF will be connected. The view from the road will be amazing!

I would imagine they are talking about punting versus kicking (kickoffs and field goals). I believe you need 75' in the clear to punt.

Seen some options. It will look insane, imagine you will have a visible of Apogee , the expanded offices and facilities and the IPF as continuous vision. With a practice field in front of the IPF.

Something should be announced in the next few weeks is the impression I got!

So a less expensive version of the Star? I like it!

Been in A&M's facility and they have a net that hangs down in an endzone with a field goal posts stitched into it.

The 2 Football practice fields just off the parking lot. South side.

There is an east and west field that are fenced off. There are some more fields further to the south. I think they intend to use one of those fields for the new IPF.

Perhaps a picture might help with figuring out which fields.

Fields A or B:

It has to be A if they are going to use/renovate existing offices.

Yes, with a renovation plus expansion of the offices and football operations building, the logical location of the IPF is in the area of Practice Field "A".

Impression I got it would be to the right of A with a PF in front. Again it will be connected to the new office facilities.

The location and the idea of connecting it to the AD building for more space is exactly what I was wanting.  Glad to know Wren can read my mind.

So we should be receiving an official UNT fundraising solicitation/document in the mail soon?  Explaining, in written form and IPF conceptual drawings, what they are doing and what they will be asking the Alumni base to do.  Financially speaking.

Wren, for gosh sakes don't send me an email requesting a donation.  Make it professional.

My guess is that this will be a big thing for them to sale and present to people that come to the spring game. 

Also, with it connecting to the IPF, I would like to see improvements made to the weight room with them moving the Football Meeting rooms into the connecting area hopefully. 

Any idea when it is expected to be completed/ started?

Weight room, maybe. But they just spent a buttload of $$$$$ renovating and improving the team meeting areas in the AC. Don't see why you would move them after you just rebuilt them.
