Ah, ok. Well, whether they're new video boards or just putting up the old boards, they're up and ready for basketball season to start in about a month.

Sure would be nice if we could break them in with a little Hoops Hoopla Party before the season gets underway.  I really do miss going to the yearly Mason Madness event. Doc Nix and the Green Machine rock and then some.  They dont have football so it usually is part of their Family Weekend celebration.

It would be nice to do something like that.
Maybe tie it in with the last home football game before the basketball season starts. If we exclude exhibition games, that would be November 5th this year (non-exhibition games for both basketball teams start 11/7 this year). People can go to the football game at 1 PM then do some kind of basketball event like that at maybe 5 PM.

Also, regarding video boards/scoreboards, they've also replaced the scoreboard at the softball field this week and today are doing the soccer field.
