Spartan Stadium scoreboard renderings revealed

The State News was the first to get ahold of these renderings from MSU. The Board of Trustees is expected to vote on whether or not to proceed with the construction at a meeting Friday.

MSU has since tweeted out the renderings on its football Twitter account.

According to The State News: "The system is expected to cost $10 million and be funded through sponsorships and other areas, according to the documents."

If approved, they're expected to be completed by the start of next season.

Overall, it's about what I expected, and of course it looks nice. This has been a needed upgrade to Spartan Stadium. Having a bigger screen in the south end zone clearly helps all viewers. The north screens are smaller, but by splitting them and putting them in the corners, it keeps the view of campus. Notice the ribbon below the north screens. As shown in the image below, that could be the biggest revenue in terms of ads. 

I'm curious if the screen image in the south screen will be at all accurate. I'm a big fan of having the game stats on the screen. 

What do you think?

    In Ottawa one winter, my cousin-german place his keys in his mouth as he scraped ice off his automotive and it stuck to his lips. Buckeye State and that they have to be compelled to enter the cars at midnight. that is manner an excessive amount of cold on behalf of me.
