Regents approved new HD boards for all three venues - and should be in place for the 2011-2012 seasons. Sweet!
New scoreboards for Big House, Crisler and Yost
SWEET DUDE! DUDE SWEET!
Thank you Regents!!! GODZILLATRON
Tell me more
Amazing. I can't believe they approved them again since they already did in mid January!
I even searched it. My bad. Feel free to delete or ridicule me into oblivion...
It's the dyslexic neighbor of Bolivia
I like oblivia.. I'll have to start using that now.
The first sentence of the article you posted:
The University of Michigan Board of Regents voted Jan. 20 to install new high definition (HD) video scoreboards at Michigan Stadium, Crisler Arena and Yost Ice Arena.
That should have been your first clue, before even searching. Any news tangentially related to Michigan sports is posted on this board within 5 minutes of it happening, so it's safe to assume major venue news that happened almost a month ago has already been posted multiple times.
I blame Ablauf since the article was just published yesterday.
And by yesterday, I'm sure you mean two days ago.
You searched? Really?? "New scoreboards" in the search box worked for me. Maybe you searched for "what was David Brandon doing in January"... which, yeah.
For the new boards, in the Big House especially. Really a testament on how technology has advanced in a short amount of time. i believe it was 1998 when they installed the current ones and they look as if they have been there for 40 years.
Tough break being named after the douche-iest commenter on this board. Better than being named Harald Balls, I guess.
I live in Fort Wayne and man has this topic been at the top all week.
That's funny. I don't see "His", "Dude", or "ness" in his name anywhere. Nickname?
Oh...I see it now. "ness" and "nus" sound the same. Tricky, tricky...
Magnus ain't shit but hoes and tricks.
He/She already apologized.
posted in the U-M news back on January 20th:
The athletic department is plagiarizing! Fire Dave Brandon!
w00t! Biggie Bagel can now race Cup O Coffee in HD one day! These pro-league screens will really be able to capture the face of somebody who just won a FFREEEEE PIIIIIZAAAAA!!!
the big question is are they back lit or side lit? if they wanted true colors they should have gone with plasma. oh snap, I hope they are 240hz so they have 3d capabilities!!!
Nice sig, mang.
I'm thinking that they'll likely hire Brady Hoke as his replacement.........
When did they get added? haha!
Night Games and Monster-trons!
Any photos on what the Big House Godzillatron will look like?
In other news, Michigan has decided to put wings on their helmets.
I believe this article was re-published because U-M awarded the bids for the construction of the renovations. My fiance, who works for a construction co. in Detroit, said that they had been awarded work for the new scoreboard at the Big House.
News clip here because it's hilarious to keep doing it over and over again.
showing the new screens at Michigan Stadium?
Since the expanded press box/suites have helped keep sound in the stadium, and since the scoreboards will be larger, why don't they just link them somehow. Enclose the whole thing? Plexiglas? It would be deafening.
just like the Euros do with their futbol stadiums. The noise would be incredible!
