    Scoreboard Update?

    Does anyone have any news on the new scoreboard? I'm sure not a lot of progress, if any has been made because of the winter. I'm excited to see how if fits into the JT atmosphere!!

    I heard it is going to be one of the top 15 in the nation for size. They are going to add ribbon board around the upper deck. The old video board will be added in the center lots so that tailgater can still watch the game. New sound system will be added with feeds to the emergency alert system so you can hear it everywhere on campus, plus get text messages in case of a upset. And as supports for the new scoreboard there will be giant spinning cyclones that touchdown every time we score.

    Hope not. What a splenderifically horrible idea that would be. Give fans one more reason not to come in the stadium. Brilliant!

    That is why I got excited when they said it was going to be put in the N Endzone. It always ticked me off seeing all the tailgaters watching the game from the parking lot and listening to the radio.

    Me too. In unrelated news, I had a dream last night that the tornado sirens in Story County went off 30 seconds before every kickoff.

    For future reference, if you have a QUESTION about scoreboard updates, please type "Scoreboard Update?" or type "Anyone have Updates on teh Scoreboard?".

    That keeps everyone from thinking you are posting and actual UPDATE about the SCOREBOARD!

    Re: Scoreboard Update

    What happened to the old video board going out to the soccer/softball/track complex?

    Re: Scoreboard Update?

    I'm beginning to believe the scoreboard won't be ready for Opening Day. Rhoads supposedly alluded to this at the Gridiron Club meeting. They are trying to see how much they can do to the stadium at one time. Plans are up in the air and finances are as well -- who knows what is going on with this Big XII television contract.

    Re: Scoreboard Update?

    Did they ever make an illustration for the scoreboard on how it should look in the stadium?
