Here's a puzzling piece of college football trivia: Of the 10 Big 12 programs, which is the only one without an indoor practice facility? Considering Oklahoma State is in the title of this article, the answer is pretty obvious. But doesn't it seem impossible that Boone Pickens could allow Oklahoma State to be the last team in its conference to add a pretty standard bell and whistle, considering how outstanding the rest of the Pokes' facilities are?
Regardless, the $19 million Sherman E. Smith Training Center is here and almost complete. In fact, players have already begun using the indoor field to get in their individual off-season work. "Obviously you can win without it, because we have, but it's one more step, one more item to be checked off the list that stands between you and being really, really great," said OSU associate athletic director Kevin Klintworth.
