    Jack Trice Skycam?

    We had one for the Cyhawk game in 2011, but I don't remember what happened to it after that. Anyone know why?

    I believe it's up to whoever is airing the game to bring it.

    We had one for the Texas game too that year too. The TV networks can bring them and install them temporarily if they want to have them

    Re: Jack Trice Skycam?

    We have had them plenty of times in the past couple years, but it doesn't always make sense when they have it. Some of our biggest games didn't have one. I really like it.

    I think we had one when Texas killed us a few years ago. And the Iowa game previously mentioned.

    Re: Jack Trice Skycam?

    I thought it'd be a more permanent fixture, considering the set-up you'd have to do, but it being media owned makes sense.

    Re: Jack Trice Skycam?

    The Baylor game had one last year, I bet it becomes more and more common this season as companies have had time to purchase them over the past few years.

    On the topic of cool camera angles...

    Sure would be awesome to have technology like this on the goal-lines and end lines at Jack Trice.

    The baylor game did my son was fixated in watching it. I think the WVU game had a more resticted one line camera too.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Iowa doesn't want a skycam at their games anymore... or at least McNutt doesn't.

    Am pretty sure they leave the cables up for them they just don't always use them.

    As I understand - the stadium has the posts for the cables to attach to. And it's not a huge deal for the crew to run the cables and setup the camera.

    That make sense. My son just always looks for them right away but really it started with the Baylor game and he didnt go to OU and WVU had them so maybe I just made that assumption since they were up the last two times.
