The ones on the side or the large scoreboard in the middle? Aren't they all old as hell.

I'd imagine they're just keeping the shell of it and upgrading the screens and such.

Just a guess, but they're probably just leaving it in for now, then adding a new, big one a few years after it's open. Kind of like how Nippert is getting a new scoreboard soon.

Thats a good point. Kinda like making it a separate fundraising project?

I vaguely remember checking a UC site that state exactly what was all being upgraded after saying on here I hope the video board/ sound system is upgraded. The site said that, yes, both will be upgraded. I'll try and find it.

Okay, that was easy....here's the site: http://www.gobearcats.com/sports/m-b...102716aaa.html

You can see, "New HD scoreboard, ribbon boards, sound system & LED lighting to enhance game experience," listed on there.

I'd imagine it's covered in this $87 million renov now, and not separate like Nippert's is. But, I am not sure.

I remember this article but I have heard from some that as the project is taking shape there might not be enough money for it. One was a UCATS rep but not sure if he truly knew. I hope we get new..

I have spoke with several people involved in the Athletic Communications department, and the only reason the main scoreboard remains in the arena is for caution. It is being saved "just in case" something unexpected were to happen that would cause money to be pulled from the scoreboard funding. The video board and ribbon boards are included in the budget and are planned, but you can't blame them for planning for the worst. Regardless, we will have new video and ribbon boards at some point.

Man, that ugly video board hanging above a newly renovated arena would look terrible. I hope everyone goes as planned!
