The list mostly goes in order of square footage. Michigan's scoreboard is 19th in the nation in terms of size, so it shouldn't be surprising we were left off of a top ten list.

Think of this as a Sunday morning croissant. Light, airy, fluffy, completely devoid of any inherent nutrition or substance, and made interesting only with the slathering on of the butter of satisfaction, the orange marmalade of outrage, or the margarine of disdainful indifference.

It seems like ESPN is digging deep for new content. Now they're taking on overly used message board threads. What can we expect next? Top 10 team colors? Top 10 fight songs? Top 10 uniformz?

Though, on the topic, I think it's disengenious to not mention Michigan given 1. No ads to take up space and 2 of the same size boards in the stadium.

I would tend to agree that this seems like a reach for content by ESPN in a typically down period for college football news, but something did stand out to me.

Was I the only person that got an unexpected chuckle out of the fact that the photo of Michigan State's scoreboard was announcing an extreme weather event whereas every other photo seems to at least be running through typical game-type displays?

...insecurites coming out here. Even funnier that people who are fans of having the biggest stadium in the country seem to be mocking other schools having the biggest scoreboards. Can you imagine how cool Beyonce would look at UTL III on the Texas scoreboard?!

All seriousness...I find it surprising that the greatest stadium in college has a subpar scoreboard...especially considering all of the recent upgrades. The LA Coliseum is a dump...but the scoreboard is unbelievable and makes the experience much better.

The giant Miami scoreboard just hides the fact that no one is at the game.  they only average 47,000 for a 75,000 seat stadium.
