The Longhorn weight room gets major facelift


Texas has had one of the best weight rooms in the country for the past 15 years, according to head strength and conditioning coach Bennie Wylie. Recently, the Longhorns decided to update it with a face lift, and the changes are pretty sweet.

Not only is the facility now more functional, with equipment and a layout that matched the visions of Wylie, and assistant AD for strength and conditioning Jeff Madden, but it's also got some sweet bells and whistles to wow recruits including a 50 yard indoor field located directly above the stadium, and chromed out plates with the Longhorn logo on them.

"If you come to Texas, we are guaranteeing that you will get the best out of your body. Whatever God put in, we will help you get out." Wylie promises.

Here are a couple screen shots from the video tour, and the entire video can be seen on the Texas website. Take a minute and see the impressive upgrades and hear the confidence that the staff has in the new additions.
