    Hawkvision at Kinnick Stadium Getting an Upgrade

    Well, now think about the video boards that were put into Kinnick in 2006. At the time they were the latest and the greatest. Well, we’re seeing that when a fan comes to Kinnick Stadium, they want to see great football. Kirk’s job is to continue to make sure that happens. Our job is to continue to provide the fan a great experience and part of that comes from offering the latest technology.
    So we have a $6 to $7 million project related to video boards that we’re working on to enhance Kinnick Stadium and all that our fans experience on game day. And we’re planning to have those installed in time for the 2013 season.

    Awesome. Spend another six to seven million so that 70,000 fans can see the replays of the 14th three-and-out of every game, in high def glory.

    Good, my dad always complains that he can hardly understand Kinnick's Hesiman speech.

    Good news! Those video boards were getting to be really tough to see on replays.

    That would be an audio problem bro not a video problem.

    I just hope they use the entire F'ing video board for replays. The only time they use the whole damn thing is during the back in black entrance.

    Lets hope it's like Carver where they use the large screens for ads and small screens for the actual content. (sarcasm)

    Scorpio, I havent heard you so negative.

    All I want is they start showing replays of controversial plays and quit treating the fans like babies or people who might riot toward the refs.

    It is the stupidest thing that they never show the crucial replays.

    Agreed here. I hate when they miss out on showing replays of crucial calls or even when plays on under review sometimes.
    IMO, it takes away from home field advantage, to a degree.

    NFL this year shows exactly what they're showing under the hood, in an effort to keep up with the at home experience. It'd be nice if the college game followed.
