Photo: Illinois' New Memorial Stadium Scoreboard Is Huge, Awesome

A nice addition.

The Fighting Illini have been anxiously awaiting the completion of their new scoreboard for Memorial Stadium. And who could blame them? It looks awesome.

According to CBS St. Louis, the upgrade, which makes the scoreboard twice the size of old model, cost the university $6.7 million. Today, the school's football Twitter account gave us a nice view of the new addition -- check it out: 

Here's a video of the new board showing football footage: 

Who doesn't love watching replays on a giant, 125-foot-wide screen?

If this doesn't get Illini fans excited for football season, maybe these new helmets will.
