Ohio State’s football facility is undergoing some significant renovations this offseason. Part of the renovation project, which also includes new lights and turf at its practice field, is a brand new locker room for the Buckeyes.

The OSU Athletics Twitter account tweeted out some projections of this project, and one of the more eye-popping aspects of the upgrade is the waterfall in the locker room.

Yes that’s right. A waterfall. Here’s the projection (that's the "waterfall" on the right, apparently):

According to, the waterfall, which lights up red, will separate “the wet area from the locker room, in addition to a nutritional area, more HDTVs, personal power stations for phones in each locker and a lounge area.”

The Buckeyes aren’t the first team to have a waterfall in its football facility. Nebraska has a huge one. Alabama has one too.

OSU also provided updates on the progress of the indoor field as the turf is installed.

The whole project is expected to be completed by July 25.
