    Are those people up on top of the scoreboard? Who gets those seats? Doesn't look like camera operators. AD staff or something? Just curious...

    I'm about 99% sure those are camera people.

    I'm not sure who they are, but there were people up there every game this season.

    Pay no attention to the men atop the scoreboard.

    I thought they were shooting game film for ISU and maybe the other team.

    It is a camera crew. They are on top of both scoreboards.

    Ok. Just didn't look like anyone was standing behind a camera.

    When does Knott start spray painting ISU on people's backs after making a tackle?

    The real answer is the score board manufacturers. Every scoreboard maker has a team of guys that go to the game and are on the scoreboard the whole game. Fairplay sends their guys.. My uncle used to go to a ton of bowl games. He had no interest in going to any football games. It was however his job. He would be on the scoreboard the whole time just in case something went wrong. I don't know how many orange bowls he went to but it was a lot.

    I, for one, am glad Trojan doesn't have this same policy.

    One of them is a poster on this board, actually. He does video for the football team. You can see him roaming the background of some of the celebration videos.

    I've met one of the guys who works up there, he lives with several of my best friends at ISU.

    His Facebook has some pretty epic pictures on it. He shoots film for ISU and I believe he does other jobs for the team during the week.

    Pretty sure it's representatives from Pitt, scoping their next coach.
