A new era has begun for the University of Miami football program. The quest to bring The U's facilities up to par with the big boys of college football took a massive step forward this week. 

As announced by Miami athletic director Blake James, the Carol Soffer Indoor Practice Facility is up and running.

The staff of Out The Huddle took an in depth look. 

This facility is important for so many reasons. 1- It's a tremendous recruiting tool, illustrating the fact that Miami can offer similar facilities to massive programs like Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State, etc. 2 - Miami now has a way to practice when South Florida's weather becomes an issue. When there's lightning in the area, the Canes are no longer obligated to reschedule or cancel practice. Now, they can take it inside and keep working. 3 - This facility shows the committment that the University of Miami administration has towards the football program. This is a significant investment, when previous administrations chose to save money and resources whenever possible. University President Julio Frenk and AD Blake James understand what it takes to make The U a football powerhouse again. 

Time flies. The Hurricanes are just 10 days away from their 2018 season debut. The 8th ranked Canes will take on Number 25 LSU on Sunday, September 2nd in Dallas, Texas. You can listen to that game on 560 WQAM!
