is a nice touch.
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
is a nice touch.
I'm disappointed these aren't going to be bigger. Missed opportunity.
Sounds like you might be the kind of person that would be given everything they ever wanted. But complain it didn't happen fast enough.
And I am the kind of person who scolds people with poor grammar.

It's a football stadium, not a drive-in theater. You're probably not going to be watching live action on the scoreboard if you're in attendance.
You all have to understand that you are looking at a pic that is the result of a transformation of perspective caused by the lens used in cell phones. In other words, distant objects appear smaller than they are in real life. The illusion very common with cell phone cameras.
I sure hope there will be speakers in both scoreboards this time. It sounded sooooooo shitty last year coming from one end.
Last year was the first year for the PA speakers to be located in the scoreboard. Previously, the speakers had always been atop the press box. But with the renovation of the stadium and the press box, we were told that speakers atop the new (much large) press box would be too high in the air to be effective. Hence, the move to the south scoreboard.
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.
Reply to UMxWolverine:
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.
