Coin flip.....I like the out of the box thinking as I always found the scored board dick measuring thing to be lame and mainly limited to mindless SEC fans..but it did not work out for us.

I dont hate it but its like can we get a real one in the other endzone in the future?

Honestly the basketball one is a nice upgrade but as long as it does not look like a single A high school board I have never really cared and I doubt one recruit cares about the scoreboard at a football stadium.

I've never seen an ovular eagle head. What are you guys talking about?

RE: New App State video board(s)
Here are today's updates on the KBS board:


They were drilling down when I was there to take these pictures. These were taken around 6:15 this evening.

You can get a better idea of the sheer size of the columns in this picture. These things are easily five feet in diameter.
[Image: yGg4kKb.jpg?1]

They've started to wire up the electrical stuff needed for the ribbon boards on the East Side stands.
[Image: za4UPP0.jpg]

They have also installed new security cameras throughout KBS.
[Image: HgnjvRT.jpg]

The pieces of the video board are actually sitting out now. I'd guess there to be 25 to 30 pieces sitting out underneath the East Side.

They have removed the old smaller ribbon boards on both sides of the stadium. I wonder what those will be used for now?

Here's the West Side without any ribbon boards.

You can see the sheer size of the crane and the columns in this picture, as well.

Thanks for the pictures. Excited to see this thing completed

The Rock isn't just a nickname. Here's the drillbits used on the first hole so far.

And it's serious enough that it might cause delays.

Send in Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, and Steve Buscemi. They can drill into anything.

Should have known that was going to happen once they went past 10 feet. IMO, they should have come down the hill halfway, sunk the beams until they hit rock, built a form and filled it with concrete then wrapped it with stone.

Are they charging by the drill bit? I assume not, so I don't care where it goes as long as it is easy to work around for future expansion that could happen before the video board is replaced.

Eagle's head eh? Hummmm.....Must be some sort of an abstract adaptation.

Represents the head of an eagle. You can see the wings, body, and tail in the building behind it.

Extreme artistic license.

Extremely Extreme!

The story I head was that Coach Monkin wanted a football shaped board. After he left they never put the ends on it . Imagine it with a triangle on each end

I was in Boone Wednesday and they were preparing to blast. The specs called for 30 ft deep shafts. They bottomed out at 28 ft, 21 ft and 15 ft. All began filling up with water, which was predictable by anyone who has been around KBS for any length of time knew was going to happen. The new course of action is to drill into the rock, blast it and extract the fragments until they get down 30 feet. Probably will have to sink a cason then use a slurry type system to deal with the water. It is turning out to be a very expensive scoreboard.

And that's why you're never ever going to see the KBS playing field dug down in an expansion.
