The Auburn Tigers finally debuted their enormous video screen Saturday afternoon and it is as beautiful as you’d imagine. Now there are speculations about what the school could be doing with the back of the giant screen.
AL.com shared pictures of the continued construction on the giant video board and it looks like the team could be adding screens to the back of the video board. The website even quoted the athletic director as all but confirming the board getting reverse screens.
“In the future what we may end up doing is we may end up putting LED video boards back there so it’s not static signage,” Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs said. “So that we can do things like ‘Graduation today at a certain time’ or ‘congratulations to professor Smith for winning the Leischuck award,’ things like that because it’s such a big board and massive space. I didn’t want it just to be solid, I want it to be something that we can actually utilize.”
If you haven’t seen the photo of the video board actually turned on, you certainly missed an awesome sight.
While fans won’t be able to stand outside and see the game, I’m sure they will be able to drive by and see highlights from past Tiger seasons. I would expect to see “Kick Six” played a whole bunch on the screen.
The Auburn Tigers open the season in Atlanta when they take on Louisville as part of the ACC/SEC Chic-fil-A Kickoff.
