O/U on the number of ads for Axe body spray in your scenario? Also, we've seen what happens when MSU officials take care of a scoreboard, let alone some blacked-out brah. Of course they're epic fail enough where they'll cheat on the score but try to make it look close and actually end up with a lower number on the home side.

Can the electrical engineering students at MSU get that hooked into one of the stadium's main panels so it actually works? Your guess is as good as theirs. 

Bit of trivia - the scoreboards at  the Big House have their own individual transformers. One is ours (i.e., Detroit Edison), one is actually powered and owned by the University.

I realize that's a job best left to paid (and insured) professionals, but that would be a hell of a project as a student.

On a "cool story brah" note, my grandpa and uncles (either M alums or big fans, depending on which) did all the electrical wiring for sound in Ohio Stadium. Wish it could have been the Big House, but I still think it's cool.

IF it was up to D'Antonio, he would find some bootleg way to get larger scoreboards in the stadium. Just like how he has some bootleg way of bringing back players from jail in the stadium. 

OT: Since I don't have enough points, I wanted to alert people about the new ESPN recruting database for football and basketball. It looks quite sleek, and I actually like it a lot more with the players pictures and the date committed with the school's logo. Maybe someone could make a post on it, on my behalf.

Tressel is looking for work.  Dantonio could hire his "good for college football" buddy as head of fundraising.

Well, taking into account the multitude of advertisements cluttering their scoreboard, MSU will have to get JerryWorld sized screens if they want the viewable area to be bigger than Michigan Stadium's.
