"These are my new shoes. They're good shoes. They won't make you rich like me, they won't make you rebound like me, they definitely won't make you handsome like me. They'll only make you have shoes like me. That's it." - Charles Barkley
I remember us playing K-State 4 years ago and the whole scoreboard and video system went out for a good amount of time. We have had nothing but trouble with the video board and sound system. It was brand new in 2002 and now it is completely junk. Great buy BVD
That's because the power in at least half the stadium went out for about 5-10 seconds. And it takes awhile for the big electronics to restart -- much slower than just flipping a light switch.
Realized that... I think my main point is that we have had several problems with it. I know it's happened a few times. Also the video quality is bad from time to time. If you have ever tried to tape the pregame video or something off the replay board you will notice it.
Also.. the sound was turned way down it seemed, but it actually sounded better.
Just seems like we spent a bunch of money on it at the time and it's not holding up well.
I think we would need about 10 Million to match Minny's sound and Audio.
