Illinois getting new scoreboards, ribbon displays in 2013

Quote:
The project calls for the main scoreboard, three ribbon displays on the west and east balconies, and under the scoreboard. Another, smaller display measuring about 16 by 9 feet, is planned to be installed on the north wall of the southeast tower.

The new scoreboard will measure 125 feet, 9.8 inches wide and 54 feet, 3.7 inches tall, compared with the current scoreboard size of 48 feet by 68 feet. It will include the usual information such as game time, scores, downs, distance, yards-to-go, timeouts and more.

"It'll be one of the largest boards in the country when it's completed," Brown said.

AWESOME.

Seems like Mike Thomas is really going the way Michigan State has gone in the last few years. The new turf, new scoreboards, and new uniforms (full Nike rebrand ala MSU) are much, much needed for this program. Factor in the huge renovation lined up for the Assembly Hall for basketball, and this makes an exciting decade coming up for Illini fans.

The sizzle will definitely be a plus but illinois had better start winning at least some of the time on the gridiron and more consistently in hoops
