While it's nice, Temple's Edberg-Olson Hall isn't on par with some of the nation's premier college football practice facilities.
But once the $10 million expansion and renovations are completed July 1, there likely will be plenty of satisfied people at 10th and Diamond Streets.
The upgrade "is twofold," Owls coach Steve Addazio said Friday amid the construction.
"It's got a big effect on recruiting. But it's also functionality. You need a state-of-the-art training room to give your players the best opportunity for rehab and to be able to come back from injuries and protect their bodies."
Temple's strength and conditioning area has expanded from 2,500 square feet to 10,000. An indoor turf surface stretches close to 40 yards near the window.
