    They had to ask for more money just to get this much done. I'm guessing asking for another couple million for a bigger video portion probably would've just been grand.

    I don't think you realize how much video board is there. Hint: It's ******* massive.

    The video board is huge, trust me. I stayed at a holiday inn last night.

    If the video board was any bigger it would look stupid.

    Maybe its not about the video board needing to be bigger, but just too large of a logo next to it - considering there will be one on either side...

    Well ****. I am emailing JP that this new board just isn't good enough and that they need to tear that POS down and start over. I will be sending my 10 million check along with my complaint.

    If so, when there's larger-than-life Cyclone action on the video board, it'll more than make up for it. :wink:

    Gotta do something with the space unless you knock down the Jacobson Building so it spans the supports.

    While I too am thinking and feeling the same thing, the videoboard in the north endzone in square feet sense, is more than 5 times the size of the videoboard in the south endzone.

    Totally agree, I'm just not sure what would look "better"...

    It looks far better than the previous one, so I'm hoping it's sounds that much better as well. Overall I won't complain - just proportionally it seems off, to each their own.

    Trust me guys Im not complaining whatsoever. I love the new video board. I just dont understand why were gonna have two huge logos next to it. Instead why not just make the videoboard even bigger? I havent seen it yet and cant wait to when I make it up for Oct. 1st and Nov. 5th.

    Id be interested to see what the 'actual' video space is once you remove the advertising on the sides. The south board has that as permanent fixtures so its not a direct comparison. Obviously the current one is larger, but it does cut into the space.

    I hope several years down the road the structure can be used to just make the video go at least one more section in each direction, if not the entire length of the structure.

    You guys who havent seen the video board don't know how big the thing is.

    Doubling the size of a board that is already huge, seems like overkill to me. Not to mention doubling the price.

    On top of that you have the game clock, score, time outs, down and distance, etc... that all need space.

    Unless you have the video board at Kaufman Stadium, the actually game play video could be condensed to half the size of the board.

    It costs money? A lot of it?

    Plus if it gets much bigger, you have to make it taller or it looks really out of proportion (not the normal 16:9 HD display), therefore making it even more expensive.
