The University of Central Florida is spending its way into the college athletics ‘arms race’ of fancy, elaborate facilities for its student-athletes:

The University of Central Florida announced Monday that it plans to build a state-of-the-art athletics complex with an actual “lazy river” at a cost of well over $20 million.

Apart from the “lazy river” surrounded by palm trees, the $25 million facility will feature a $1 million sports-nutrition center, a cabana area, and even a miniature golf course, all intended to create a “place for athletes to relax, recover, and get to know each other,” according to Director of Athletics Danny White.
