This made me laugh...
Way to show the pimp hand
It's adorable that Sparty is thinking about putting some cute new scoreboards up in their stadium.
Well there was speculation about sending the old ones to a deserving high school. Maybe they could upgrade that way if they filled out an application in Brandon's office.
To save some money they could keep the maize and blue "Michigan" on the scoreboard and just tape posterboard over "Stadium" with "State" colored in with green sharpies. Nothing says little brother more than hand-me-downs...
If Hollis really wanted to wow the borad of regents there, he would invest in some huge whiteboards and have students update the scores and draw in the ads.....
O/U on the number of ads for Axe body spray in your scenario? Also, we've seen what happens when MSU officials take care of a scoreboard, let alone some blacked-out brah. Of course they're epic fail enough where they'll cheat on the score but try to make it look close and actually end up with a lower number on the home side.
There would be other advertisements aside from Axe?
You would have to like Crayola's chances and I wouldn't rule out Mad Dog either.
I'm guessing there would be gold and blue Wal-Mart advertisements and at least one head shop. It's also too early to count out Natty Lite.
hink it would look like this?

EDIT: embed fail. I only had 15 min to make and post before dinner, enjoy!
I wish that I could +1 this but as "incorrect". There is nothing fail about this picture (embed job or otherwise). Front page material, congrats.
Edit: Also, judging by the stands you got it on either a fall Saturday or graduation. Nice work.
I had a really solid laugh at your edit. Well played sir, well played! HAHA!
Can the electrical engineering students at MSU get that hooked into one of the stadium's main panels so it actually works? Your guess is as good as theirs.
Bit of trivia - the scoreboards at the Big House have their own individual transformers. One is ours (i.e., Detroit Edison), one is actually powered and owned by the University.
I realize that's a job best left to paid (and insured) professionals, but that would be a hell of a project as a student.
On a "cool story brah" note, my grandpa and uncles (either M alums or big fans, depending on which) did all the electrical wiring for sound in Ohio Stadium. Wish it could have been the Big House, but I still think it's cool.
IF it was up to D'Antonio, he would find some bootleg way to get larger scoreboards in the stadium. Just like how he has some bootleg way of bringing back players from jail in the stadium.
OT: Since I don't have enough points, I wanted to alert people about the new ESPN recruting database for football and basketball. It looks quite sleek, and I actually like it a lot more with the players pictures and the date committed with the school's logo. Maybe someone could make a post on it, on my behalf.
"IF it was up to D'Antonio, he would find some bootleg way to get larger scoreboards in the stadium"
Tressel is looking for work. Dantonio could hire his "good for college football" buddy as head of fundraising.
But would it be "Tragic" enough of a hire?
Breakin' necks and cashin checks.
"Hey MSU, we have more money than you."
Well, even if they get bigger scoreboards than us, they'll still have to be installed in that craphole of a stadium.
Well, taking into account the multitude of advertisements cluttering their scoreboard, MSU will have to get JerryWorld sized screens if they want the viewable area to be bigger than Michigan Stadium's.
this is funny but kind of an immature thing for an AD to say
He was joking about something Hollis had just said: "I wish I had [DB's] budget...I wish I had half of his budget."
ohh, i see...haha
them take little jabs at each other on Twitter before. I'm pretty sure they're friends.
Impossible! They can't be friends! Then how do we play them against each other in our minds?? Not allowed. Enemies.
I bet there's a lot of things about DB's job that Hollis wishes he could have.
Including, his job
that was hiarious
I don't think state is funny. I think it is sad. Pathetic really.
Worst faux-rival ever.
I think Brandon is just showing genuine concern for the in-state rival.... Like a Big Brother should...
exactly why they should get our hand-me-downs!
who knew he had a witty sense of humor. i like it.
