By 10 minutes.

Looking incredible.  And huge!  Can't wait to see the videoboard tests to show stats, and maybe some replays.

And of course, the season opener!  Gonna be incredible!

on September 3rd!   Looking good, and can't wait to see how the handle the stats and video content.  Are the speakers going to be all at the North end?

Go Blue!

They just did some more advanced stuff than the pixels at least.  It was just some pattern flowing across the screen.  

edit: I guess they don't have cable hooked up yet, gotta adjust the antenna:

It's going to make watching the game easier if you're in the end zone up high. I have a tough time seeing the play if the game is at the opposite end so I watch the screen. It will actually make watching the screen worth it.

Was there in person the other day, You need to be there to really get a sense of how much bigger it really is, i almost cried.

Has anyone else noticed that it looks like some of the panels are upside down or something? When the colors change, instead of moving up, it moves down causing a growing horizontal line for a second. I don't know how to describe it any better than that.

My favorite part (besides the thought of HD replays) is that the "MICHIGAN STADIUM" lights up. Can't wait to see that during the night game.

They have actually put up footage!  Looks like it's of the ND game last year but it's not scaled to fit the size of the board.

EDIT:  See above.

Both of those guys have to be wearing harnesses in order to be up there. It'd be a huge OSHA violation if they are not harnessed in, and UM wouldn't be too happy if they don't have harnesses. UM has instituted some very strict rules regarding construction on campus since there were a few deaths in the past 5 year with construction on campus.
