First let me preface this by saying WOW!! As if it weren't hard enough to turn down Kentucky already, that's a top notch facility.

Second, how in the name of Posted Image is the in compliance with the NCAA? Athletic dorms haven't been allowed since 1996.

Because students stay in parts of it.  They're not athlete exclusive.

There is a small loophole with it.  As I understand it, as long as you have a 50/50 ratio of regular students to the athletes then it isn't considered an athletic dorm to the NCAA.  Kentucky just found the gray area and is milking it for all that its worth.

Come on, bullshit bro. Cal found another loophole and is exploiting it.

They don't have NCAA trophies in any of the other dorms on campus

I was under the impression that all schools did this.
Our athletes get the nicest dorms, but it is half regular students too.
Not just basketball for us though.

Not at VU. All dorms are pretty much designed the same. They want to incorporate the student-athletes with the rest if te student body. They don't want them to be segregated.

But unlike at other schools, our athletes are actually students too
