How do you know it's the college football off-season? The Worldwide Leader is running a listicle on college football scoreboards, and I'm re-blogging it.

According to ESPN, Ohio State merely has the tenth best scoreboard in the country. Most fans would be satisfied with this ranking, but Ohio State fans aren't most fans.

Here's the conglomerate's rub:

10. Ohio State: The Buckeyes' high-def Panasonic scoreboard measures 42 feet by 124 feet and has an array of 25 speakers on each side. You get great picture quality along with fantastic sound. The fans also are offered some pretty neat extras, like videos of student-athletes and teams, interactive features with former Buckeyes and quality player introductions.

Well, Ohio State beat out the likes of Baylor and Minnesota, so I guess that's something to hang their hat on.

As for me, I feel Ohio State should have a scoreboard that can be seen from the moon. Priorities, amirite?

Arkansas' scoreboard?

Third?

Well, I guess it has to be sufficiently long (re: wide)...

Pretty sure this is the only time Bert will be able to claim "Scoreboard" over Ohio State ever again.

Compensating, and so forth.

This is ridiculous (sigh...off-season), but a couple observations:

1. An unbuilt scoreboard shouldn't get ranked.

2. Not sure that a scoreboard in an NFL stadium (Miami) should be ranked.

3. Bonus points should be given for scoreboards that use the least amount of real estate for advertising during games.  Showing an image of the USC's scoreboard at the Coliseum not during a game is useless.  Likewise for the Texas A&M rendering.

I'm thinking you can't get point number 1 without point number 3; advertisers help get the finances to complete the scoreboard.

Call me totally biased but I disagree with those rankings.

Wow, Texas looks horrible with all those ads.

For a second, I thought that was LSU.

LSU doesn't do cold weather ....wish they (and rest of SEC) would have to do it ....the thought of a January home playoff game at the Shoe vs. an SEC opponent is ...well...glorious
