Definitely agree with the last sentence. The press box looks very different to me though.

We have had a lot of hurdles and uncertainty regarding this. But we're just 15 months away from seeing football in the new FF. That's pretty cool.

I'm also happy they found a way to get a new scoreboard. Finally the student section will be able to chant "bull.. ****" and know with certainty whether or not the call was bad.

New scoreboard is in same location. Students will have a very bad view of the scoreboard.

Speaking of the scoreboard. Very very disappointed with the new renderings. No bigger than the old. Same location. Unless they remove the advertising along each side (yea right!) what are we really getting? The video display has to take up the whole width or it is money thrown down the drain.

Are were sure the new renderings include the new scoreboard? I just assumed that was the old one. The field and scoreboard are separate from the stadium renovation. I'm still hopeful for a much nicer, larger board. It would be great if they put the new one above the student bleachers, and continued to use the old one by putting it on top of the game day building so students could see it.

It sure looks like the old scoreboard in the renderings. But it's not like those pictures are high quality either.

In this article, Wood says the scoreboard will be bigger. But he doesn't say it will be moved. I guess I just assumed they would keep the old one as well since we do need two.
