Post Football Video Boards
Has anyone heard how big the new video boards will be ?

I know the old ones are slated for the baseball and softball fields.

Had no idea we were getting new ones! Our little TVs are about the only thing I could complain about in our stadium. Glad to see them go. Anyone have anymore info about this?

I'm sure the 4,500 in attendance against Ga Southern in October will get a real kick out of the new Video setup!

should and could are different things, but the general concession lines, beer concession lines & sound system are frequent, and legitimate, targets of ire. personally, i would add the ridiculously overzealous security/ushers and the trash bartenders (or chartwell's in general) in the pavilion.

So instead of having one nice video board in the south end zone as expected, we are going to have two smaller video boards? I sure hope this is incorrect.
Two years ago we had a friend and his family join our group at the game. The father/husband sat board checked out the entire stadium and asked why we didn't have a video board. He was in disbelief when he was informed of our video boards.

If they stick with two boards they need to at least double their size.

The sound system is my other major complaint.

The concession lines are slow but are in line with most stadium experiences. Usually if I get beer I take cash and hit up one of the girls that is between the main concession areas and it goes much quicker or since we have small crowds in certain sections I walked to those areas instead of the dark side where the majority of the crowd buying thing is.

One HUGE assed video board mounted on top of the EZC... That would be sweet!

The video board(s) doesn't bother me so much as... THE SOUND.

above the EZ complex
I have always understood that was the plan.

besides looking ridiculous and out of place, not really seeing how that would be possible given the way the ezc is constructed.

I'm not sure how you would put a video board on the EZC. It really wouldn't look good on top of the arched roof that spans the middle of the complex. You could probably put two much larger boards on each side of the arched roof, but at that point, it would probably be cheaper and more practical to put them where they are now.

Image

The width of the arched section is about 86 feet. For reference, UT's screen is 134x55 (width' x height') Baylor is 107x47, TTU is 107x37, UH is 68x51. There are only about 30 non-NFL FBS stadiums that have a screen wider than 86 feet.

Based on that picture, I hope they add two more columns to each side and make two boards that span those. It looks like you could make each one 4x bigger. If they use the current columns they won't be that much larger. Just looking at this makes me see how small those screens are.
