Football Stuff: New Scoreboard Activity; 2011 Team Poster Well Received

2011 July 7

A couple of football related items for you.

  • I swung by Carter-Finley Stadium on my lunch break today to see how the new scoreboard was coming along. I happened to catch the technicians running some simple test patterns on the new panels which all seem to be installed and accounted for. They've also added the new time, score, etc. panel atop the LED screens. At this point it looks like only trim work and aesthetics remain before completion.

    Here are some pics (click to enlarge):

  • The new 2011 football team poster is out for public consumption, and the "early returns" on the design have been quite positive. I have to agree; take a look:

    PackInsider's Lou Pascucci wrote a very solid piece about the poster and how it relates to NC State developing a consistent brand–something the school has definitely lacked the last two decades. I also encourage you to read the piece about the poster's design over at TheWolfpacker that inspired Lou's great analysis.

    Thanks for the info on the poster.  It looks fantastic.  And with the new scoreboard, man, I’m really looking forward to football now.

      This really is the WORST time of the year for me…it’s hot as hell and football season seems 1,000 miles away.
