    For a school Miami's size, it does well.  At the time, the Gross Center was outstanding, and it still does a great job.  But football and hockey have their own facilities for weight lifting and training.  But it's still the people involved who make the athletes better.  Remember, before all these fancy buildings, I believe (and please correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a while) Coach D ran most of the weight lifting out of Withrow Hall.  Those teams were phenomenal!  

    Places like Oregon (Nike $$$$$), SEC schools, Big 10, just the Power 5 schools, have some amazing places.  You still need the right leadership, strength coaches, who are continuously learning how to keep making the student athletes stronger and faster, and then applying that knowledge to the athletes and making them better.

    There are at least 25 NCAA division 1 football S&C coaches who make more than $300k per year. Man was I a dope for going to law school!
