Gotta admit. That thought did cross my mind.

Since the referee lines up behind the QB, he will be able to see that kind of activity. If he decides it is intentionally trying to affect the game, he can call an "Unsportsman conduct" penalty on the home team which gives the offended team a 15 yard penalty walkout and an automatic first down.Therefore, I don't believe FBHC Clark would consider that a smart tactic. .

I put it right in with the idea of poisoning Toomer's Corner oak trees. Some fan might think it was a good idea.

He takes every comment seriously. That's why he has so much gray hair. 03-old

It appears that most of the work this week has been electrical. The weather shut down landscaping pretty much all week.

It also appears that most, if not all, hardscape is complete. I believe the south side of the stadium areas that appear as dirt on the camera will all be landscaped.

I thought that i had seen some solid blue or greenish lighting on that a couple of weeks ago or so on the web cam, but it was only 1 picture ( the hourly things they post), and then nothing else .

I thought that i had seen some solid blue or greenish lighting on that a couple of weeks ago or so on the web cam, but it was only 1 picture ( the hourly things they post), and then nothing else .

I've taken screen captures of all different lighting components.

Things I've seen so far:
Led colored lighting (like interstate) at top of press box
Ribbon panels on east side can light whole stadium in color. Seem to be pretty high resolution.
Speakers in scoreboard are MASSIVE. Looks like a line array system 20-30 ft tall with subwoofers that could probably demolish carraway site if turned all the way up.
Accent lighting in scoreboard that really lights up architecture.


I grabed screen shots of the stadium with color lighting. That appeared to be from 2 corner ribbon lights. Can only imagine the effects that can be produced betwwen scoreboard, ribbon lights, stadium lights, and any hidden secrets they may have in the works.
