Did You See This? Spartan Stadium Scoreboard

Michigan State Scoreboard

Matthew Mitchell

Perhaps you heard Spartan Stadium will have new scoreboards in 2012. Here’s a fact you probably didn’t know: The board’s video screen will be the fifth largest in the country, according to AD Mark Hollis. More important, the school says the $10 million project will give Michigan State the biggest scoreboard in Michigan. In other words, it will be bigger than anything at Michigan Stadium. It’s called a rivalry for a reason, people. See a picture of the scoreboard in this post and see more here.

The stadium will feature three boards (see Google images) — two on the north end and one on the south — the crown jewel, a 450-foot long ribbon board at the top of the bleachers. In all, the new videoboards will cover about 13,500 square feet — or roughly 5,500 more square feet than what Michigan Stadium offers.

Speaking of Michigan Stadium, here’s a look at its scoreboard:

Yeah, sparty’s scoreboard will be the biggest in the state. And rightly so. Why not have entertainment on the scoreboard since you won’t find anything entertaining about sparty on the field.

Randy just doesn’t find anything entertaining on the field because he probably doesn’t like seeing MSU win. Again. And again. And again.

You guys are all hilarious. I’ve been watching Big Ten football since 1969 and Michigan has so embarrassed sparty along the way that I can see why you all have gone overboard with your puny 4 game win streak (which occurs, what, every 60 years or so?). 31-12 in the last 43 years. Not really a rivalry which you can see why we consider you our little brother. You all weren’t running your mouths when we were beating you 6 straight years before your recent anomaly. You all are proof positive why sparty is disliked second only to ohio. You get a touch of success and you act like it’s always been that way. Well, boys, I’ll be here after this year’s game. Let’s see which of you has the stones to come back here and admit your run is over.

Hey Randy, you’re the reason Missed again is disliked so much, acting all arrogant. Keep living in the past, cause the present is MSU 4 Missed Again 0. After MSU wins again Oct 20th we won’t see you. O$U considers Missed Again their little brother, how’s that 1-9 streak against your supposed biggest rival working out for you?
