$EC $$$ at it's best

I know, I know.......other teams will do this as well. Just a great example of how obscene the $$$ is for college athletics at it's highest end. Not that many years ago teams were scattered across campus environments with guys staying in multiple different housing options, eating with the general student population, etc. Now?

The ridiculousness of this at this point is that all of these P5 institutions have pretty much created a sealed environment (and well before COVID) right there on their campus to use at their disposal (if they wish) to sequester these guys in the facility that resembles a 5* resort. They all have athlete dorms now that are better than most high end hotels. With their own dining hall/training table, etc.

I will never understand the "need" to waste tens of thousands of dollars pretending to need a hotel environment. It's absolutely ridiculous.
