A colleague of mine was surprised when I told him that Cal’s proposed high-performance center will put the school in the middle of the pack as far as quality of athletic facilities in the Pac-10. That, at least, is according to Sandy Barbour. Barbour told me that she thinks there is a perception that the school is building a “bells and whistles” building, but she says that simply isn’t true. Barbour said right now the school “ranks near the bottom in terms of training and medical facilities for student-athletes” and the proposed facility, in essense, is Cal’s attempt to keep up with the Joneses.
