Almost too easy for someone born and raised in Nebraska to find something red....

NU's new scoreboard is located in the north end zone. I was sitting 8 rows or so from the top in the south end zone.

Go Big Red!!!






Off now to find something a little more.... subtle.

Huh! Must be a Nebraska sign. This photo has me puzzled. The background is dark and dreary but the sign is very bright. Is that an electronic display sign? The shot turned out great but I wonder if fast shutter speeds (faster than 1/60th) would be a problem. I believe that the elements of these signs are scanned in a manner similar to tv screens. Consequently any element in the sign is only on part of the time.

It was a dark and cloudy evening in September, about 5:00 or 6:00pm. The screen is huge and very very bright. It's like a giant plasma TV. They do replays on it and all kinds of cool graphics.

After the game was over they were plaing commercials on the screen. A commercial for Adidas shoes came up. At the very end of the commercial, it faded to an all white background with a black Adidas logo. I couldn't stand to look at the sign while that was up and I was on the opposite end of the stadium from the scoreboard. That would be roughly 200 yards or so away. It is VERY bright.
