One large scoreboard rather than two smaller ones at the stadium.
good interview as always
--no delays in stadium
--structure will start coming out of the ground in Jan/Feb
--one Godzillatron endzone scoreboard
--juco requirements will be level playing field in 2015
Sounds like new football uniforms for 2013
On the scoreboard. Our current scoreboard at Floyd Casey is about 1000 square feet. The scoreboard at UT is 7000 square feet. The scoreboard at Baylor Stadium will be 5000 square feet.
Not too hot on the idea of a scoreboard blocking the campus vista.
Pro Ecclesia, Pro Mundus
I might be in the minority, but I will be going to watch the game and not really be worried about the view if the campus.
The huge video board is much higher on my personal list solely because it will drastically improve game day experience. That coupled with a superior sound system would have done wonders for FCS.
I'll see campus before and after the game.
I agree. Besides, people on the lower levels wouldn't have a great view of campus anyway, even with the split video boards. The only real view is going to be from the concourse behind the south endzone and from higher up in the stadium where you'll probably still be able to see over the video board. The only thing that really matters is that the tv cameras have a great shot looking out over the Brazos at campus, and they'll definitely have that. People who want to look back across the river can walk around the stadium to do so.
Don't think I will be sitting in my seat gazing out at the campus. Would rather have a kick ass video board.
Smoaky - not showing up on the Podcast App
Ah, but the vista isn't for those in attendance. It's for the cameras and the many more people watching at home. They'll still get shots of campus on gamedays, but it was going to be nice to have those establishing shots inside the stadium looking out the end of the stadium onto the water and to campus. We can still get that I guess. Just seems a big videoboard right in the middle is going to take away from it a bit.
Simple solution. position a 3D camera directly behind the mondotron. Everytime action is not taking place, have it zoomed in on Pat Neff to make it look closer.

As nice as TCU's stadium remodel is, they dropped the ball in regards to video screens. They have 2, one in the North End zone and a smaller one in the SE corner and neither is very good. I was disappointed we were going with 2, so this is great news.
