Maybe they can get the announcer a program as well. Sheadon Meadors had a great tackle on a defensive series last Saturday.

The announcer has a spotter. It's the spotter's job to get the right person to the PA announcer. The announcer should be close enough to the program to catch errors like that, but basic responsibility falls to the spotter.

He was a fill in. Regular PA guy Doug Rice had obligations with Speedway Motorsports at the Battle of Bristol.

Nice. Y'all have been way overdue on a video board upgrade. The current one has been there nearly 20 years, no ?

The board was replaced in 1999 and enlarged in 2001. Speakers upgraded a few years back. The new board will be like the one at Duke. Four times larger than the current board, but also placed a lot closer to the field. Sort of a deja-vu moment for those of us old enough to remember as this board will be in the same spot as the original scoreboard in what was then Conrad Stadium. This picture was taken while the stadium was still under construction. The fieldhouse and pressbox are unfinished.

The 2001 board was replaced eight, maybe nine, years ago. The sound system was replaced shortly after Marconi invented the radio.

In 2008 the video board was enlarged, but the overall size of the scoreboard remained the same.

Yeah, but it's an entirely different board. The GS poster was inquiring about the age of the board.

Here was the board from 2001 to 2007.

[Image: 1929406_525793848048_4613_n.jpg?oh=fbd1e...e=587F6BC4]

It was replaced by the current board in 2008. I took this picture in September 2008 the day it was finished.

We basically incorporated the scoreboard into a video board.
