chance of bowl: 13.6%
This is Michigan. The Big House should have The Big Scoreboard. Better be super high res.
I think it looks great, love the picture, and for size reference, the goal post really helps! They are 18 feet 6inches wide, the cross bar is 10feet high, and the uprights are 15feet high! Yes the stadium is huge, but I think the scoreboards are a nice size for all else we have to go with it! The example of the Minn scoreboard is a good example of too much, especially given the scope of the overall stadium and proximity to the field as a result. As for me and mine, can wait for real game action!!
Thanks for the pic!
Thanks for making note of this point of reference in the picture. When you compare them to the fieldgoal posts, it really does emphasize that they are pretty large.

Having speakers in both scoreboards would be a nightmare. The sound waves will distort each other. As well, since DB made an effort in the BIG to allow the amplification of the marching band, the MMB's sound is being pumped through the speakers, adding speakers to the south scoreboard would be hell due to the three different places the sound is coming from.
does this new scoreboard play defense?
I bet it will be a watermark type thing you would see on a regular TV broadcast. Not sure, just a guess.
I think the score, quarter, etc. will be displayed in that same long, narrow panel below the main video screen where the clock is shown in the rendering. I highly doubt the scoreboard is going to have "Go Wolverines" up there permanently.
The webcam shows they are currently working on the framework for that bottom panel.
Hey guys, it's a scoreboard.
