Newest addition: Upgrades to players' facility
Completed in: 2013
Size: 30,000 square feet
Cost: $9 million (funds also used in renovation of weight room)
The best college football team in America still needs to consistently upgrade its home, which is why Alabama rolled out a revamped players' facility earlier this summer.
There's the renovated locker room, featuring 137 stainless steel lockers (with two power plugs for mobile devices) and a common area in the middle with couches and a giant TV monitor.
And the players' lounge — which is appropriately dubbed the “Captains' Lounge,” because captains will be responsible for keeping it clean — with three 70-inch TVs, ping pong, foosball and billiard tables, a pinball machine, video game consoles and a mini movie theater.
And the new meeting space, which includes a two-story, theater-style room that seats more than 200 and eight rooms for individual position groups.
Don't forget the nutrition bar, where staff member Amy Bragg will teach cooking classes, and Gatorade dispensers throughout the facility.
And, yes, the new hydrotherapy room is home to four now-infamous waterfalls that pour into one of its pools that can be used as a hot or cold tub.

The two-story weight room located in between the Mal A. Moore Athletic Facility and the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility is believed to be the biggest in the nation. And it was built with convenience and functionality in mind. It includes 20 combination racks, which allow athletes to do a wide variety of exercises without moving stations, and clear garage doors that open to the practice field so coaches can watch players in both venues.

The facility includes a playing field longer than 130 yards, making it the largest indoor practice field in the nation. Upgrades in 2009 included a new artificial turf and the installation of the Wavecam, which records practice video through an aerial camera that can capture multiple angles while traveling above the play on the field. The facility is also fully air conditioned and heated.
Expanded in: 2010
New capacity: 101,821

The 9,683 seats added in the upper grandstand on the south end zone side made the stadium the fifth-largest in college football.
