This thing is huge compared to not only the old scoreboard, but in relation to the arena.
Can't wait to see a game there and the new scoreboards at Crisler and the Big House.
6 ---------------> midnight
Will it fit in the yost? The ceilings aren't that high and that looks to big for the arena. I really hope it doesn't interfere with sightlines and constantly get hit by pucks.
I'm sure they just arbitrarily picked a scoreboard without figuring out whether it would fit or affect sight lines.
In my hometown they designed the overhang leading to the ER 6" shorter than an ambulance.
It can happen.
But not at michigan
There's a rather well known, pretty expensive new stadium in Dallas Texas that has a scoreboard has been known to directly effect the flight path of footballs. So let's not pretend like things can't go wrong.
That could be a problem whenever the hockey team has to punt or throw a Hail Mary.
Dallas hung it 5 feet higher than the NFL told them was the minimum. It's very common in hockey though to have center ice scoreboards. I just feel for the spectators who cannot see the Yost boards because of the upper deck overhang. Maybe they'll put up mini-godzillatrons for them.
The people for whom the scoreboards will block the ice are sitting in the boxes, no athletic director is going to screw that up and hang it too low.
Those things are gigantic! They almost look TOO big, but hey whatever haha
Our scoreboards are bigger and nicer than your scoreboards.
When will the 2011 CCHA Champions banner be raised? And they need to add years onto the GLI and Frozen Four banners.
The banners will probably be put up over the summer; they generally don't have banner-raisings for conference championships, nor should they.
Michigan's hockey team is not taking full credit for conference championships, though: the Big Ten awarded a hockey championship trophy every year from 1959 through 1981, so Michigan needs to put up banners for Big Ten championships (1961, 1962, 1964, 1968, 1969) and maybe for a Big Ten tournament championship in 1968, although they would need to do some research to determine whether the "Big Ten Tournament", held from 1967 through 1969, was an official conference event.
I don't think it'll affect sightlines, but I do think you will be unable to see a few of the many banners we own. :)
going to be sweet.
They have the potential to be glorious, can't wait to see them in person.
When I imagine the sieve and see ya chants being closed captioned on the jumbotron?
Is it still a delay of game penalty if a d man hits the low hanging scoreboard during a penalty kill?
