    I believe that was proven to be unsubstantiated...but it sure sounded good.

    I went there a few times throughout Fall of 2010 and they would have "Beat Penn State" or "Beat Tennessee" in the other team's colors showing on them and that was it. No cable TV for sure.

    Even some former players are in awe. Check out Barron's tweets about it

    Yeah this has kind of been answered, but when I went through there in 2009, they had a motivational word of the day, workout plans, and other informational stuff on the screens. Definitely not CNN or ESPN or anything.

    Wow, what an amazing facility.

    Is this the only picture available? I couldn't find anything else on the net.

After entering the exit the first room on the right had the free weights and the first room on the left had the machines. They were good sized rooms but nothing like this.

    Combined they would only be about a third of the size of this new weight room.

    They are not monitors - they are sensors feeding the Eye of Saban.

    Nice gallery of pics alright, but I wish the guy had any other lens than a fish eye.
