    3000 sq feet I think he said, 22nd largest in the country. Texas is 8000 sq feet roughly and is the largest.

    Re: New scoreboard

    Current scoreboard is 543 square feet. That means...

    543 * 6 = 3,258

    That puts us at the 10th largest scoreboard in the nation!?!?!

    Re: New scoreboard

    The current video board has 543 sq ft of viewing area. Conservatively, 3000 sq ft would put us at the #13 video board nationally.

    edit, damn beat me to it

    Re: New scoreboard

    The new board will have about 3,000 sq ft viewing. Current is 500 and ranks 62 out of 66 BCS schools in size. The new board will put ISU at #22 in size. Yes, the board will be HD.

    Godzillatron at Texas has 8,000 sq ft viewing area.

    3000 puts us up around 10-12 as referenced in above link.

    MAYBE the 3000 sq ft isn't actual screen real estate.

    22 and 3000 dont mesh. 22 would put us at right around 2300

    3,000 would actually be 13th.

    I went based on what Pollard said. I was running when I heard him speak.
