Rasing Reser Update :: Jumbotron Frame

If you're like me, you look at this thing 5 times a day, but if you've forgotten about it, here is an update:

Excuse the sun glare....

The steel and concrete has been going in very quickly. If I remember correctly they got all of the steel up in just two or three days, and the concrete is going just as fast. Yesterday, we got treated to the first part of the Jumbotron frame going up. I've heard rumors that the "square" you see is one of FIVE, but I find that hard to believe. The way I understand it, the frame will span five steel sections, so what you see is 2/5th's of the frame. However, I could be wrong, and you could be looking at only one fifth. Judging from the renderings on the OSUBeavers website, it looks like the scoreboard will not quite cover the entire part of the bleachers actually parallel to the field. In other words, the scoreboard won't reach the end of the straight part of the bowl. As with any scoreboard, unfortunately, expect lots of advertisements to flank both sides. Example.... here.

I'm sure most of these questions will be resolved today. Construction has been going very quickly, so we should notice considerable changes by tonight.

If you are down in Corvallis for the Cal series, stop by and check them out. If you have any pictures you would like to share, don't hesitate to send them to me at

Go Beavers!
