Scoreboard upgrade

I've heard fans yearn for it.

I've read Greg Wrubell hint at it.

And now I've seen it with my own eyes.

The BYU athletic department has finally done something with the great white canvas we call a scoreboard and dazzled it up a bit. I saw it first on my way home from physical therapy today, and it is gorgeous.

I'm sorry it's such a poor picture (cell phone), but the back of the scoreboard will now feature an oval "Y" (it's not finished, as you can tell), and a band underneath that reads "Tradition. Spirit. Honor." Underneath that it says "Championship Football."

All in all... it's pretty sweet. If you're in the Provo area I highly recommend taking a drive down the University Parkway hill and taking a gander at it yourself.

Also, I don't know if you all have already heard, but the north scoreboard will now be a video board much like the one in the south side of the stadium. That upgrade happened a while ago, but still bears mentioning.
