The university unveiled the new-look lockers and extreme renovation Wednesday night, to the delight of its players–many of whom took to Twitter to rejoice in their good fortune.

James “PJ” Locke III, a defensive back, blamed it on the new on-the-field leader, ex-University of Houston coach Tom Herman:

At approximately $10,000 locker–more than twice the average cost–it’s obvious why the team has gone nuts. Instead of your run-of-the-mill nameplate, for instance, each locker has a 43-inch video screen bearing a player’s name.

The upgrades are part of a $10-million renovation of the Texas football facilities, which also includes a weight room revamp, an upgraded field entrance with “enhanced lighting, imagery and technology” and renovated football offices.
