    Kansas State University has unveiled their new $65 million football facility.

    The Vanier Family Football Complex is the biggest piece in the school's $125 million in athletic facility upgrades at the school and was funded in part by a $20 million donation to the school from the Vanier family. Of the remaining cost, $30 million came from donations to the school with $15 million coming from athletic department revenues.

    The school opened up the facility to the players for the first time this week and released a video of the tour. Here are some screenshots of some of the swankiest features.

    The players were in awe as they entered the facility.

    The first thing they see is a bunch of TVs showing football games.

    There is a "fueling station" that is accessible to all student athletes and includes a fountain machine that dispenses Gatorade.

    There is a Windows tablet on the counter to remind everybody who sponsors the room.

    The players were quick to help themselves to some Gatorade before moving on to the rest of the facility.

    The locker room is football-shaped and is twice as big as their previous locker room.

    The Olympic-quality strength and conditioning center is enormous at 18,000 square feet all by itself.

    The walkway from the weight room to the field is covered in artificial turf with hash-marks and yard lines.

    The tables and chairs in the trainers' room are covered in purple, of course.

    One hallway features larger-than-life images of that year's captains and listings of every captain in previous seasons.

    The tour didn't reach the meeting rooms, but here is an artist rendering of one of the rooms complete with seats emblazoned with the K-State logo.

    And offices for the coaches open up and overlook the football field.
