New North End Zone Scoreboard Planned

64 posts in this topic





I love that rendering with the two smaller video boards, but anything will be better than what is there now. This NEZ thing is starting to become a serious issue. Adding the Mega board to the other side just made it worse, by comparison. The high school board has to go. My only hope, is that they finish all video boards.

Am I the only one that kinda enjoys the nostalgia and simplicity of the NEZ scoreboard? Likely just sentiment to a simpler time of life and sports.

This coming from a millennial.

I would agree with you, if it was an old scoreboard that has been used for 20-30 years, but there is nothing special about what is sitting up there. It's relatively new, but still boring. If we still had the old leaping tiger scoreboard, I bet people wouldn't want to let it go.

Ah, you're right.  That's the one I'm always thinking of, maybe my mind just super-imposes it over the NEZ.  Wasn't this score board actually in the SEZ? Surely they got it in storage somewhere?  Do a refurb job and stick it in the NEZ.  The noise measuring lights on the side were awesome along with the leaping tiger.

Well at least you'll be able to see a replay from anywhere in the stadium now.  I like being able to see Haley and some other campus buildings over the north end zone.  Reminds me that I'm on a college campus.

When are we going to stop paying millions of $ on new scoreboards every few years. The outside of Jordan-Hare needs a lot of work plus add more seats is what Jordan-Hare really needs. I still would love to see Auburn go past UAT in seating capacity. Something between 103k to 105k.

You talking about the foundation work that's started on the SEZ addition?

I'd rather see seating increase than another scoreboard

for the 10 millionth time, for those that constantly yammer about adding more seats.  We have to sell the seats we already have to justify adding more.  It would be colossally stupid to add seats to that stadium, when those seats would remain empty for all but maybe 2 games every 2 years (thinking georgia and uat).  It would be financially stupid and look ridiculous adding seats for them to sit empty game after game.   We do NOT need more seats in JHS.  Period.

That is what the digging is about.

You have to bet that this development came from a desire to stop the phone calls, emails etc from people who sit in the North End Zone and are annoyed that they can't see that scoreboard without turning around and then many are too close anyway.

Yes and as a matter of fact a case could be made to reduce the current capacity of the bench seating to make room for individual cushioned seating. An appx. 85K capacity with nice individual seats would go a long way while we wait on exterior facelifts and/or NEZ projects.

More scholarship and high end donor seating is a must. Ex: new braves stadium.

You can't be serious. It's trash.
