The University of Minnesota has finally found a way to one-up OSU and the other
U of M's football squads by ordering up the first Daktronics
HD-16 scoreboard in the Big Ten (Will you be able to watch the Big Ten Network
on it?). Second-largest in college football to Texas' Godzillatron
, the 108- by 48-foot display takes advantage of all the company's latest technologies, and should be ready for Minnesota's home opener against Air Force in 2009. Some fans may wonder how the big screen will make the football team better, but if top-notch facilities help recruit the next Marion Barber III-Laurence Maroney connection then it should be well worth it.
