    Scoreboards

    From scouring Kansas' Scout board, I see they installed a new scoreboard in their stadium.



    Is there talk of us upgrading our scoreboard anytime soon? KU's is like 3x as big as their old one.

    Since we just got one in the past decade and that the bowling is coming "soon" we won't be upgrading before then.

    Re: Scoreboards

    Here are some pictures of the new scoreboard Mizzou put in before last season.

    The Front of the Scoreboard.


    The Back of the scoreboard


    From wikipedia
    "In 2009, the university installed a new $5 million 30x80 foot north end zone scoreboard with updated video capabilities and new sound system. The new north end zone video board and audio upgrades replaced the current 10 year old equipment."


    Here are some other Big 12 Scoreboards. Large new scoreboards seem to be the recent trend in the Big 12.

    Texas


    Texas A&M


    Nebraska


    Kansas State


    Oklahoma

    Nice that KU's field is still named for a criminal.

    I still think a sound system would be a better investment.

    I agree, with the sound system. Man, I always thought ours was pretty nice until I saw the other schools scoreboards.

    Definitely. Our scoreboard is far less of a problem than that damn thing.

    That being said, I'd prefer if they took care of both at the same time...

    Re: Scoreboards

    Here is a good link. When we do expand we should make our scoreboard 1 foot bigger than Nebraska's:)

    Daktronics offers video and audio as a package deal, which I believe is what KSU and MU went with in their recent installations.

    There's no reason to shell out any cash to upgrade before a south end zone project is officially announced. Otherwise you end up doing it twice and wasting money.

    Re: Scoreboards

    Personally, I'm wondering why the picture on the Mizzou scoreboard at the top says Bear country. In progress highlights, maybe? If you look at in the background, you can see the first few letters in Baylor as well.

    The scoreboard video screen is showing highlights of the MU-Baylor Bears game...in Bear Country, which is apparently what they call Waco, TX.
