    Will this be ready to go for Friday? Or no?

    Re: Jumbo Tron?

    Does this have anything to do with Talkin with Tron?

    Did this get damaged in the flood? was it on the floor or are you talking more about the control room

    I think it was more of the control room that was damaged not the actual scoreboard. I could be wrong but thats how I remember it.

    yes, it was the control room, which I guess is located in the basement. I haven't heard any word on whether it will be ready to go tomorrow or not, they didn't sound too optimistic a few weeks ago when they sent out a letter to season ticket holders. I don't imagine it will be too much longer though.

    I thought there was a letter or post or something that said it probably wouldn't be working for the first few games. Could be wrong though.

    I don't think it's ready to go. At least that's what I thought I heard Pollard say on last week's pregame show.

    It's not ready to go. There's an article on GoCyclones.com about the first two exhibitions game.

    Yes, I am too lazy to link it.

    I looked for it online, but didn't see it. Pretty sure I threw away the actual letter. It basically just said that Hilton would be open on Friday, that they were no longer using the old ticket office, and that the scoreboard is the only thing that probably wouldn't be working on opening day.
