The latest rage for athletic departments flush with money? Videoboards. Texas' Godzillatron, above, is the current leader at 55 feet tall and 134 feet long and costing $8 million.
On Tuesday, Auburn announced plans for a high-definition unit that will be approximately 30 feet tall and 74 feet wide and costing $2.9 million. Now Oklahoma is set to approve a plan to upgrade its videoboards and sound systems at Memorial Stadium and Lloyd Noble Center. The cost: $10.3 million.
Oklahoma State also plans to go digital, reports George Schroeder of the Oklahoman. Among teams with improved videoboards: Texas A&M's 12th Man TV (54-by-74) and Nebraska's unnamed board (33-by-117). Thanks to Greg! Some registration.
