Imagine everything a football player might need or want and it's probably in Kentucky's new, $45 million practice facility.
The new place might even include a few things a football player didn't know he wanted.
The plans for the more than 90,000-square-foot facility, released to the Herald-Leader on Tuesday night, show a lavish building that will serve as a one-stop shop for UK football.
There's a full-service kitchen, a juice and smoothie bar, a high performance weight room with its own cardio mezzanine and a turf-floored area for specialized training.
There's a massage therapy room, a space for sports science, team doctor's offices with in-house X-ray machines.
There's even a little barbershop just off the players' locker room, which has hot and cold tub pools where they can soak while they watch SportsCenter on televisions just above them.
The entire facility, for which $26.3 million already has been privately raised, was a vision of Coach Mark Stoops, who said this summer that he tried to be involved in every aspect.
"Our facility, the football facility and what we're designing right now, I've been heavily involved with that," he said.
He definitely was, said Marc Hill, executive associate athletics director for Internal Operations.
"When we've had big decisions to make, he's been in the room," Hill said. "He's been a lot more involved than I thought he would be."
The entrance to the facility, which will be attached to the current Nutter Indoor Training Center, will face Gate 12 of Commonwealth Stadium.
The practice facility will have many of the same architectural features of the $120 million redesign of the stadium, including stacked limestone and a barn wood look with similar lettering and facades.
The main foyer to the practice facility, which is scheduled to open in the summer of 2016, will include massive video boards showing highlights, as well as trophy cases and mannequins featuring every UK uniform combination available.
There will be a high performance weight room near a main sports science area, part of the vision of UK High Performance Coach Erik Korem.
With the new facility, "we almost want to develop almost a living, breathing monitoring system," Korem told the Herald-Leader in April.
Players will walk through the door every morning and be tested on what Korem calls their "physiological state of readiness."
Included will be weight, heart-rate variability, omega wave, urine analysis, muscle-skeletal tests, and adductor squeeze test.
The options are endless.
"The more space we have, the more information we'll be able to collect," Korem said. "We're just trying to streamline the process so things happen faster. That's going to be the idea."
There will be plenty of space available for that and for dietary needs, including an on-site dietician and a full-service kitchen adjoining a large dining area that will seat 130 people comfortably.
"The juice bar is the nutrition bar where they're getting their smoothies, fruits, nuts and bagels," Hill said. "They'll do all of their snacks and meals in the actual dining room."
There will be an academic lounge area and computer center, a smaller version of the CATS center at Memorial Coliseum.
"They have so many players, and we're running out of tutoring space, so this allows us to have more tutoring rooms," explained Dewayne Peevy, deputy athletics director for UK.
The players' locker space will include a massive video wall with an interlocking, lit-up UK in the ceiling over the main area.
Nearby will be a players' lounge.
"We think this will have a sports bar-ish type feel with multiple TVs," Hill said. "On the right is where we think there will be a PlayStation gaming area."
The main player meeting room auditorium area will include theater-style seating. It will be more intimate than the current room, with eight rows of seats instead of 13.
The position meeting rooms will have two walls of dry erase boards to draw up plays and discuss schemes.
The coaches weren't left out of the improved accommodations either.
Each of the full-time coaches and coordinators on staff will have offices on the second floor with glass walls overlooking two grass practice fields near Alumni Drive.
"They've got a little mezzanine or patio outside their offices where they can walk along outside there," Hill said.
Staff rooms will be double the size of the current staff rooms, with enough room for 19 coaches at the table and a raised area that can seat 10 graduate assistants and other staff as well.
