Following Again

Is it just me or is that everytime Ole Miss comes up with a capital improvement to their facilities that M$U comes out with something new a few months later. The basketball practice facility, the house that steroids built, coaches salary, the junction, and now the scoreboard. While I understand that Ole Miss did not invent any of these and are without a doubt behind the times compared to other universities in some categories, but will the Dogs ever do something without following Ole Miss. Its almost like their is someon in Starkville that says, "well Ole Miss is building this, so I guess we better build one too, and while we are at it, lets make it a foot bigger, to say ours is better"

(MSU)STARKVILLE — Work has begun at Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field on one of college football’s largest high definition video boards, MSU Director of Athletics Greg Byrne announced Wednesday.
The $6.1 million true HD board, will span the roof of the Leo Seal M-Club Centre in the south end zone at Scott Field, and will be operational by October, 2008. When completed, the new board will measure 152 feet wide by 135 feet, 6 inches tall, with a main HD screen 111 feet wide by 47 feet high. It will be the largest true high definition board in the Southeastern Conference. The board will also contain two vertical HD displays and one horizontal scoreboard display.
