“It’s obviously a tremendous benefit for every athlete. If there’s one facility that’s way below standard, it’s the weightroom. For Dana Anderson to do something like this is tremendous. That weight room was so substandard, we did our work in spite of it. ” A little bit of it’s recruiting, and the other thing is scheduling, just finding time and space. Our team filled that old place up. The weight-training staff did a marvelous job of scheduling, but they had to start at 5 in the morning. You don’t get as much out of it at 5 in the morning as 3 in the afternoon.” — KU baseball coach Bobby Randall
