Gameday Enhancement

It is probably the cynic in me, but the news of the new virtual matrix board doesn't make me think it is the fan experience enhancement that they are saying it is.  Unless you count Hairy Dawg ringing the bell on a huge screen for 10 minutes a fan experience that we enjoy.

The new scorboard is impressive.  I saw it when they were working on hoisting it.  Think of an 83 feet wide HDTV. Look for the SEC to ban live action replays being shown in the stadium any time now.  It also should be easier for those that are interested in following Uga in the hidden ball trick to do so. 

Now, I am jonesing to tee it up.

The vitriol in the comments section there unnerves me. I have been told the AA plans on moving the old video board to Foley Field for baseball, and moving the Foley Field board to softball. So each of those venues will get a bigger board as well.

Yeah, I noticed those. No matter what you do, someone somewhere will find fault. Those people are usually the first and loudest to speak.

I kind of miss the old scoreboard behind Loco's on Lumpkin Street. Back then the only "gameday enhancement" was running the damn ball. Oh well. Onward.

You want vitriol? Try this Janice - The only thing about the scoreboard that interests me is the fucking score. They can turn the entire western section of Sanford into a big ass scoreboard with all kinds of lights and shit and it wouldn't make one fucking difference in the game's outcome. The only variable that influences what matters most, the score, is our team's performance. Show me a team that plays hard, plays to their potential, overachieves at times, and I'll show you a winner in Athens. You want to create a terrific fan experience, then eliminate the mediocrity and win.

If you're not going to show replays (or be able to show replays), I see no point in having any kind of screen.
