It’s only scoreboards…but again we are looking up at O$U & M$U...they are everywhere these days and all up in our grill.

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

We have a division in my company that sells and installs these things (typically Daktronics, Panasonic, Mitsubishi and Barco LiveDots) and we're putting larger boards on the side of hotels than what Michigan Stadium has. We have a 60' h x 200' w board scheduled to go up in LA right now (for a tidy 8M bucks ;) and I can tell you we get bombarded with requests all over the west coast for these monstrosities.  The advertisers pay the largest percentage for these things so if you think advertising was already too invasive, just wait.  And as a Digital Signage Certified Expert (which means I can fog a mirror) I'll be more than happy to be THAT guy that makes your life miserable.  :)~

I do know about this one JSJ.  We were contacted by the architect (I want to say it was Populous but I don't remember) to bid on this but our closest support offices are in DC so it didn't make tactical sense for us.  I somewhat remember the bid package and I want to say that just for the boards it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 50-60M but I'm not totally sure.  Whatever it ends up being it's a ton of money and that's just for the displays.  Pretty crazy.  I would have loved to work on this one but we couldn't compete with the local guys.

Yeah I'm sure it is hard being west coast competing for an east coast project. I'm no engineer, but I can see the logistical nightmares even from being in DC area. Boy they sure are some MONSTERS of a scoreboards for sure! I'll see if I can't pop some pics from inside stadium if I get to do medic standby for a game this season.

Did u have any involvement with the Charlotte motor speedways big a*s TV they got on the backstretch? Holy sh*t that thing is a huge piece! I'm sure the astronauts get to watch some TV every time the space station orbits around our way! Lol I think it was the biggest TV until recently. That was amazing to see in person when I went to the coca cola 600 this year, made keeping up with the race a lot easier.
