here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
Wow! How exciting!!!
My day is officially booked.
You are gonna watch that all day???
Love how it still says "Shots On Goal" ..... ahhh, sweet memories of the Big Chill. And kicking MSU's ass on the ice.
I can' wait to see what the new scoreboards are going to look like. I am pumped.
Have there been any renderings or info on what these will look like when completed?
I emailed someone at Michigan about this question. Hopefully they email me back so I can post some pictures.
Think they're starting construction now for a Spring Game (April 17th) showing?
Try April 16th asshat
He said A spring game, not THE spring game. Maybe there's a super secret scrimmage on the 17th you haven't been invited to.
Wow, that wasn't unnecessarily dickish or anything.
for your thoughtfull response. I sincerely appologize for getting the date of the Spring Game wrong by 1 day. I did a quick google search and accidentally noted the date of the 2010 Spring Game.
Hopefully my massive error hasn't caused you too much frustration today. Sadly, given you're response, I can tell that it has, and for that, I am truly sorry.
Try *your*, asshat
thoughtful only has one "l" at the end.
many friends, do you? Care to guess why?
there have been multiple renderings
it has been rendered in multiple fashions
I'm just staring at this video -- come on crane, knock that shit over!
It's actually kind of interesting that the speaker cavity is large enough for people to walk around in.
I am hooked on this -- never thought I would be but I can't stop watching.
Jan... Cancel my appointments for the day.
Neat. This almost brings back memories of the stadium cam. And a hundred Michigan fans calling in to the athletic department to tell them that the "N" in the south end zone was backwards.
Kind of surreal watching it.
I hope those dudes are harnessed in! (that's what she said)
Was there money allocated for a new sound system with the scoreboards or was this planned in the original construction costs?
I bet there is some resale value for the old sound system.
I believe the sound equipment was new for last year. They're probably just taking it out to be used in the new boards.
I think they just got a new sound system to go with the band mic-ing IIRC.
Thanks for posting this. Does anyone know if they're going to be replacing the exterior of the scoreboard at all (i.e. the large block M that reads Michigan across the center) or is it just the screen/sound system?
This seems like a great opportunity to do so given Brandon's commitment to phasing that logo out and replacing it with a simpler maize M.
The boards are supposed to be 40% larger than the entire current boards, so I'd venture a guess that they'll have to replace the whole thing.
OH MY GOD THE CRANE IS MOVING! lol
Curious if they are speeding up progress on the Basketball Practice Facility. Haven't heard anything in the last month, but I gather it is slowly moving along. Haven't seen any live cameras updating that construction projection.
I wish iPhone would support flash already. I would love to see this. But watching this and driving wouldnt be such a good idea
You're not missing much.
It's ... surprising fun to watch. I like watching the people walking around inside the top of it. Craziness.
Glad it's happening too! I'm really excited to see what the new boards look like.
They are tearing down the scoreboard to have a Notre Dame like score board with no video on it. With the left over space it is going to have a Dominos logo
how sweet would it be to buy the university seal and then mount it on your roof or side of your house. i would consider that person all in....
I would also consider them all in. I'm picturing it now...
I didn't know this was happening so soon. I reiterate the question above asking if we know what these are going to look like. Is it going to be pure video board, or are we going to have a bigger version of what we're tearing down (I kind of like the way the old ones were, just not the lack of size and HD)?
Also, are we in fact putting some more rows of seats in before we put them up? I know that was tossed around, but is it actually happening?
What is this a center for ants!
Didn't realize the speakers were that large either! Dang! Down with the old up with the new!
there is a crazy amount of negging on this thread. even the most boring or obvious comments are getting a (-1). Strange...
i wish they had a pictoral representation of the finished boards. i wanna see how close to godzillatron status the new boards will be!
The only way I can tell this isn't a still photo are the flags just to the right of the scoreboard. Pretty cool either way, though; it'll be interesting just to pop in intermittently during the afternoon.
Size wise it should be something like this...See Black outline...
My bad on the double post but at least now, you'll get the effect for the north and south endzones...
Can anyone post a pic of what's going on? I have no Internet and must rely on my iPhone :(
