Oklahoma held an open house over the weekend to celebrate the opening of the Sooners' move into their new home, the Switzer Center. OU's stadium has undergone massive upgrades in recent years, its indoor facility is good as anyone's -- and, most importantly, the program is the most consistent big-time winner west of Tuscaloosa. The Switzer Center -- which opened last year, but was dedicated on Saturday -- is the final piece of the puzzle, the Sooners hope, in keeping Oklahoma among college football's elite of the elite.
While we don't have a clean look at it yet, we can say that Lincoln Riley's office inside the sparkling new Switzer Center is jaw-dropping in its extravagance. With seating for close to 20 people, dueling big screens, a center-hung chandelier and a fireplace, Riley's office is essentially in miniature mansion.

The entrance to the Switzer Center puts the Sooners' resume front and center -- seven national championship trophies and 10 Big 12 trophies.
A neat way to display the Sooners' recent championship rings.
A spacious new equipment room and a wall displaying NFL jerseys donned by former Sooners.
The Sooners' lockers didn't cost $10,000 a pop, but get the job done nonetheless.
Not to be confused with the stand-alone Everest Indoor Practice Facility, the Switzer Center has its own covered field connected directly to the weight room.
