Maryland’s plan to repurpose Cole Field House into a $155 million indoor football and academic research facility took a serious step Thursday, when the Board of Regents’ Finance Committee unanimously endorsed the project. The project is still pending approval from the full Board of Regents in December, but the school rolled out its plans in full Friday in a news release. The announcement includes a new Web site  and video devoted to the development, which can be viewed below. The school also released numerous renderings of the football facility, which are also embedded below.
