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:  Photo of the new video board from the north end zone #Illini pic.twitter.com/UCyIjSS1oU — Illinois Football (@IlliniFootball) July 26, 2013 Here’s a video of the new board showing football footage:  The new Memorial Stadium video board in action! #Illini https://t.co/dXGJpvSAj2 — Illinois Football (@IlliniFootball) July 26, 2013 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.
