Nine Million Dollars for A High Definition Screen
Will Be Used...Six times a Year?

From the Daily:

TCF Bank Stadium to be equipped with high-def video boards

The University's Athletics Department and South Dakota-based Daktronics agreed last week on the contract's terms, ending a search for a video board contractor.

Officials agreed to the $9 million terms, because Daktronics "fit the bid," said assistant athletics director Phil Esten, who added that the contract falls within the estimated price for that portion of the stadium project.
The next time OurLeader complains about the meager resources provided to the university by the state, I hope he remembers what his own priorities were and how this nine million dollars was spent.
