Well, it appears they're not keeping the shell up in any capacity. About as exciting as watching paint dry, but worth a quick glance on a Monday afternoon.
Scoreboard Deconstruction Update
There's people moving around on it!
The dogs! They're playing poker!
The snozberries taste like snozberries!
im FREAKING out man!
You are freaking out. Man.
I'm sure they are trying to get rid of them in a useful way, by donating them to a small college or high school. Hell, just one of the boards would be awesome for any high school, so maybe they could make two happy.
so does anyone know where they'll end up now?
I don't want to say too much, but let me leave with you with this thought, "Best ManCave Ever!".
My back yard. When we saw the one half gone, and my wife asked what they were going to do with it, she seemed ok with the idea. Not sure how the neighbors would feel...
The flags are moving! So much activity!
These scoreboards that are getting torn down have a 67-21 record and a 2-4 record vs the school in ohio and a 4-2 record against state. These ones opened with a loss, and it's last game was a loss.
But the old scoreboards (1969-1997,pictured) were 155-26-4 and a 10-4-1 record vs the school in ohio and also a 11-3 record against state. Those opened with a win and ended with a win in 1997 against TSIO.
Those were legendary. I kind of wish we could have kept them up, somewhere in the stadium.
Not the score itself, I mean, good score, good score.
But, look at the "Time Outs Left": 4???
I was only 3 yrs old when that game was played and I was in a Notre Dame family at the time anyway so (1) I doubt I was paying attention and (2) it probably wasnt even on TV in my house. BUT, when were the rules changed so teams only got 3 TOs each half? I never remember any game in the 1970s (when I became football-conscious) having 4 TOs per team.
The number of timeouts varied almost yearly from the 1930s through the 1960s, but the limit has been 3 timeouts per half since the 1971 season.
The limited substitution rules through the 1964 season meant that teams often had to call timeout to get the right combination of players in the game, and this fact meant that there was always pressure from coaches to increase the number of timeouts. With unlimited substitution in 1965, this pressure went away and the number of timeouts per half finally settled at 3.
I have that 'OHIO STATE"
Oddly enough, it says 'SOUTH CAROLINA' on the reverse.
I'm just hoping they get the new ones in by the spring game.
You smell something Rabbit...........Fear
The picture kind of sucks now
I can't wait until the scoreboards are going to be put up. Its going to look so much more nice.
