Photos: NC State's indoor facility getting uprights, track installed

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Progress on the Close-King Indoor Practice Facility continues this spring--progress you can watch, by the way, with this construction camera. The athletics department shared some new photos recently that show the uprights nearing installation, plus tackling dummies!

And a track surface to one side that is intended for more than just football.

This all looks nice, but I wouldn't mind seeing one additional finishing touch as the completion date approaches: to recognize the alumni who lost their parking spots to this project, why not name the yard-line nearest their former parking spots after them. For example: The Ted and Jean Stefferson, Jerry Albertson, and Steve Packard 10-Yard Line. They could have a plaque on the wall or something.

Unless it would be too emotional for the parties involved. Sometimes you just want to move on, make a clean break from an important part of your life that was taken too soon. I could understand that.
