Movin' on up

After 30 years in One Buc Place the Bucs are moving into new digs sometime after training camp ends in August. And considering One Buc Place has roaches with more muscles than Martin Gramatica this is a good thing. Some of the highlights of the $35 million training facility include:

  • 145,000 square feet, thrice the size of One Buc Place
  • Locker and weight rooms twice the size of the old ones
  • 4,000 square feet auditorium
  • Dining room and kitchen
  • Coach's studio and draft room(?)
  • Adjacent to Raymond James stadium
  • Two side-by-side enclosed practice fields with lights
  • Giant steel and glass egg

The studio/draft room is where the coach sits down to personally draw up plays and schemes after analyzing both his team's gameplay and the video of his opponent. (Gruden talks some about this in his book, "Do you love football?!")

(I was guessing you had a question on this because of the "(?)" next to that bullet point. Sorry if I took some of Captain Obvious's thunder.)

my question would be if those are the same room or if they have one room entirely dedicated to one weekend a year
