Was able to swing by on my way home from campus right when they were lifting the BOBCAT into place. It looks so damn good. First pic is courtesy of @gtapp who had more sunlight than I did. Added a picture of the south endzone just because.

The south EZ scoreboard looks like it’s going to be bigger too. ??

I love the old school collegiate font used on the ‘Bobcat Stadium’ sign. That just puts it over the top, classy and timeless.

It's the same font used throughout the athletic department, including on the front of the football uniforms and in the endzones. It's classy, and I love how we use it throughout the AD pretty consistently. I wish we would put it on the basketball uniforms in a style similar to the women's uniforms

I have it on an old Bobcat jacket from the 80s. I know the font goes back a lot farther than that though.

Crane was on the south side of the stadium on my way into work today working on the smaller scoreboard. Will try to grab some pictures if there's any visible progress.

Since it’s smaller it might be a single piece that basically snaps into place and is done. ???

Or maybe they’re removing the support in order to put up a new support?

Ooo, the suspense is killing me. 🤣

I bet it's in one or two pieces. I remember seeing somewhere that it's a fixed-digit scoreboard. Sure would be cool if it was another little video board though!
