Earlier this summer we found out that Michigan State's Breslin Center is getting a technology upgrade. The arena is not only switching to an HD scoreboard, but LED rings are also being added. These upgrades will make Breslin Center look more modern and improve the experience of watching a game there.â†µ
At the time, I said my hope was that Michigan State also had plans to install a new sound system and new scoreboard at Spartan Stadium. Technology-related improvements to the Spartans' football home are long overdue, and it turns out the MSU athletic department is well aware. Plans are in place for a new sound system and a new HD scoreboard, and renderings already exist for the latter.
It appears the new scoreboard, which will be installed in 2012, is going to be located in the north end zone. The current scoreboard that has video is located in the south end zone, so MSU may end up having two video boards when all is said and done. I'm sure MSU would like two of what you see above, but my guess is they will leave the one in the south end zone alone or at the very least just switch out the old screen for an HD one.â†µ
