LOOK: Gators logo looks sharp on turf inside Florida’s new indoor practice facility

The Florida Gators are about nine days away from opening their indoor practice facility (if an estimate released by the school on the video is accurate). As such, the crew building the facility recently laid down the turf inside, complete with yardage lines and logos.

Chip Howard, the Gators’ executive associate athletic director, tweeted a picture of the nearly-completed field Thursday. Suffice to say, it looks quite good. (You can also notice the orange-and-blue SEC logos in the same spots they are on Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.)

Florida Gators football’s new indoor practice facility going up fast, on schedule

Once seen by athletic director Jeremy Foley as a luxury, the indoor practice facility now being built by the Florida Gators quickly became a need for the program, so much so that it scrapped its original plans for a smaller structure in order to build one large enough to placate new head football coach Jim McElwain.

Now, a little more than four months after construction began, the facility remains on pace to open in September ahead of the 2015 season, a construction project manager and Florida spokesman both confirmed to OnlyGators.com this week.

McElwain and the Gators appear pleased with the yet-to-be-completed structure, though there are some questions to be raised and answered about the indoor practice facility.

McElwain, White, Foley make few waves as Florida Gators reps at 2015 SEC spring meetings

A tumultuous offseason for Florida Gators athletic director Jeremy Foley, one in which he had to hire new head coaches in his two top revenue-producing sports of football and basketball, did not carry over to the Southeastern Conference spring meetings this week where Foley and his new coaches were some of the least news-making people in attendance at the annual event.

Will Grier looks to have slight edge in Florida Gators quarterback battle with Treon Harris

Taking the Florida Gators2015 Orange & Blue Debut at face value, considering head coach Jim McElwain’s post-game comments and reading between the lines a bit, it is not hard to see that redshirt freshman Will Grier has a leg up on sophomore Treon Harris in the team’s starting quarterback tug-of-war.

Grier, who opened Saturday’s spring game as the starter on the Orange team (which was comprised of first-team offensive players), looked poised in the pocket and decisive with his throws.

In fact, the only criticism McElwain tossed on Grier after the contest was displeasure over the signal caller getting frustrated when three perfectly-thrown balls were dropped by his pass catchers.
