Is it just me…
The audio and video equipment at Michigan Stadium seems to have been left in the pre-HD era…Why is this? I took a trip to the Texas vs. Oklahoma game this year and spent four hours at the world’s largest trailer (Cotton Bowl) with one of the best “jumbotrons” I had ever seen. [So, was this game a waste of my time since the “regular season” games don’t matter anymore? As I recall Texas did win this game!] Next, I took a trip over to Tuscaloosa to see Nick Satan and Alabama. They have a top notch stadium with three HD video boards and an impeccable sound system. Texas takes the top prize with its Godzilla inspired video board down in Austin.
If you look close enough at pictures of Michigan’s video boards you can see the rabbit ears sticking out of the top right corners! With all the construction going on why not replace both endzone boards with a solid HD video screen? The area is wide open beneath for concrete pillars to support the structure and it would provide Michigan with a fantastic game time experience.
Take a look around the college football world:
Michigan: [Half of it is a fixed template for time and score!!!]
Am I asking too much for a decent replay and the ability to see the game without watching pixels tackle each other on the video board?
Someone call the W.L.A and tell them their Soviet era technology needs to go! It’s time the revolution transitions to HD.
[And I don't want to hear it's because we play in the cold/snow/north]
