Looks like WVU is running their video board very similar to LSU's new video board. WVU's is 85' by 23' (installed last year). LSU's is 80' by 27'. They are using about the same portion of their screen for replays as LSU's. One interesting big difference. LSU's new video board has almost twice t...

First, here are the final regular season attendance figures for both Arkansas and LSU for the 2009 season. With Arkansas probably blowing it's chances to host a regional and LSU guaranteed a regional, I don't expect the average to change much. If anything the regional/super will increase LSU's ove...

The bowl of the New Alex Box looks pretty much complete. Only thing needed looks to be the finishing of the dugouts. Since last week they put in the final purple seats and laid the "fake" dirt along the foul territory.

Why are the windows on the first floor of the new Alex Box (1st photo) not installed as designed (2nd photo/rendering)?
