Just got back from the Bucs game and I must say the new video boards (and new stadium sound) is very impressive in terms of quality and clarity.  However, it sucked that they used 40% of the space for ads the entire game.  What's the point of building huge video boards if you're only going to use 60% of them.  The ads could have easily been on the side boards that are just as prominent but had twitter and instagram scrolling on them which no one really cared about.  I'm a little bit disappointed.  I hope USF handles it differently and only has ads between quarters or even between plays if necessary.  I know the ads provide great revenue but they could be elsewhere in the stadium.  An old fart's two cents.

I'm guessing, and hoping, that there are a ton less people advertising for our games ...

That 60% is still bigger than the old boards!

I'll just go ahead and assume that didn't come out quite right!

Did you see USF's football team at the game?  They were boarding the bus as we arrived at the soccer match.

Yes I saw them walking to their seats. Pretty low key except for a couple Go Bulls from a few people near the picnic tables.

Guessing the ad space will be the same for our games.  Any way those guys can make money, they will

Had to double check, but yeah, came out perfect ....... unless we get advertising revenue that I didn't realize.

Not entirely sure, but I heard those side boards would occasionally be used for additional camera views in-game. That was the maiden voyage so there may be a few in-production kinks to work out with full staffing.
