College football programs are always looking to one-up each other by building bigger and better facilities. When Clemson’s new football headquarters are completed, it may have the most lavish digs in the country.

The program announced the new $55 million facility last year and construction is well on its way to be ready for next year’s projected completion date. Let’s take a look at what will be inside:

Among the bevy of amenities soon-to-be available for the Tigers include a bowling alley, putt putt course, barber shop, movie theater, whiffle ball field, basketball court and my favorite: the nap room.

Another personal favorite is the random slide that will apparently give players an easier way to make their way from the second to first floor. Who needs stairs?

The coaches’ meeting rooms look pretty sweet too with a view overlooking the practice fields, which are adjacent to the facility. Oh, and head coach Dabo Swinney’s new office might be bigger than my modest Philadelphia apartment. No, I’m not jealous (I’m so, so jealous).
