The New UK Video Boards Get a Test Run

This was apparently the weekend to be a high roller UK football fan. In addition to the Rich Brooks Bourbon and Cigars event (which apparently was AWESOME), some donors got to see the first look at the new UK Video boards in Commonwealth Stadium. A well-dressed KSR reader was in attendance and he brought this video back for us common folk:

    I don’t think fans really realize how badass these things look and most importantly sound. The sound system is unbelievable and sounds crystal clear. The stadium is going to have a TOTALLY different feel this year with the 2 new boards, sounds system, and 360 degree ribbon boards wrapping the stadium. It all looks awesome! Major kudos to Mitch Barnhart for a job well done.

    I completely agree with the previous response. Yes, the video board were awful but the sound system was beyond awful, it was embarrassing!

    Very nice, sounded loud— but I hope they get the glitch that
    lets Mitch McGary to be heard in the background at the
    same time fixed.

    I hope they get the glitch that lets an advertisement cover the screen from HP while Mitch McGary talks in the background.

    The ribbon boards are not done yet…. one corner of of the stadium and under one of the boards had yet to be installed….

    But the boards were sweet…. The first few games expect some bugs…

    Somewhere in that video needs to be Steve Johnson’s locker room freestyle rap, the Tebow hit and Dicky Lyons’ hit against LSU. Just from the video you can tell the new board looks awesome. I’m as die hard basketball as the anyone but these were much needed upgrades to the stadium. Rupp still has some life in it so let’s keep updating the stadium for a while. One thing CWS was lacking was atmosphere. Hopefully these new upgrades will bring some life into it.
