    Video/scoreboard

    Hey guys, I work with the crew that runs the scoreboards and videoboards at the games. I was wondering if anyone had any comments or concerns about the video board. We were just looking for some feedback. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Video/scoreboard

    I wasn't at the SDSU game to start the season, but if the decision hasn't been made already, KILL THE KISS CAM!!!! It seems to be a cancerous phenom that has spread to all kinds of pro and college venues, but in my opinion it is something that is out of place at a major sporting event.

    Other than that, no complaints, keep up the good work!

    I thought it was a great job last night and I really liked the new videos. Are those going to be on youtube or something sometime? Great work!

    Every 10 minutes please add 1 point to our score. Everything else was fine.

    I would like to see the names/profiles of the player that just made the play when you are doing replays. After the Darius Darks touchdown everyone was yelling and I could not hear the PA. I was watching the board to see who caught the pass and never did.

    Starting lineup graphics will need further proofreading. I know I saw a few instances where "Offensive" and "Defensive" were misspelled when showing the linemen.

    Re: Video/scoreboard

    Actually, now that I think about it, is there a reason that we never show instant replays of controversial plays on the scoreboard? It seems like whenever there is a real questionable call or something that I would really like to get a second look at it never gets replayed. Is that some kind of policy to keep the fans from getting on the officials even more than they already do? And if so, is this a decision made by ISU or is this something passed down from higher up, like the Big 12 or the NCAA?

    In general it's a bad idea to show controversial plays on replay, especially if it may help the opposing team make a decision of whether to challenge or not.

    Exactly what he said. Especially last night when the names were wrong in the program. I printed off the roster from the website, but the guys behind me had no clue what was going on.


    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    I totally agree with that. I hate when controversial plays never get shown again. If the refs make a bad call they should hear about it from the fans and if it is correct, it will shut the fans up.

    I think he's referring to after the challenge has been issued, or the replay is in effect. It'd be nice to see some different angles while the replay is going on, rather than relying on blind trust that the refs got it right.

    Who's names were wrong in the program?

    I guess I could see that, not that it would matter though.
