    Those dorm rooms looked like pooh. I thought they'd be a little nicer than what they were.
    I remember Birk in an interview wishing training camp as of today would become a thing of the past.

    Given that the athletes work out all offseason unlike the old days, he felt they could just stay practicing where they usually do, and then give up on the whole camp out/dorm idea. Or at least move into a nice hotel in the TC with some nice beds.
    They are compensated more than the players in the old days too.
    In the old daze, Birk would be sacking groceries in the off season.

    This is the time when they get all the guys together and decide which ones fit the team.
    The point of the on site living is to make it like boot camp where they don't have the homelike atmosphere.
    They all live on location so nobody has flat tire excuse on there way to the facility.
    It is real simple.
    Weight room, practice field, trainers, cafeteria are all within walking distance of each other.

    There might be another solution besides the dorms in Mankato, but why mess with this tradition.
    Birk is just complaining or making his wishes heard.
