    It's ok, they are buying cheap jersey's from a company they found on the internet to off-set the increase.

    Re: Scoreboard price went up...

    Iowa State University officials will seek approval of the budget increase from the state Board of Regents during a meeting Wednesday in Ames. The meeting information was released Thursday.

    The new total is due primarily to an increase in the projected costs to erect the structure that will support the new video and sound system above the Jacobson Building
    Explains why no renderings have been released.

    Ouch...

    ISU plans to finance the $5 million purchase, with annual payments estimated at $675,000 for 10 years, with interest of 5.9 percent. Funding for the payments will come from athletic department revenues and scoreboard advertising.
    Need a big payment to come in, otherwise that is $1.75 million in interest we are going to be paying too!

    My guess is we will see renderings soon after the Regents meeting. Someone on here said that there is a regent meeting coming up next week. My guess is that will be t he final approval for the project.

    On a second note, who here things it would be a cool idea to reveal this project during the spring game? Someone can go over the intercom and talk about the project while showing the renderings on the current scoreboard. I think that would be a pretty cool idea.

    This. The regents barely approved of it when it was $4 million, now I can see them not approving it...

    Re: Scoreboard price went up...

    So we may need a donor or a TV deal to offset the 1 million signed..sealed delivered before the next meeting.. I don't see the problem if we can back it. This is will be real sucky if it gets shot down. I will personally drive to Iowa City a pee over any contruction if it gets C Blocked by the BOR.
