I used the field, sections, goalposts, and the small press box below the scoreboard to line up the 3D rendering of the new Spartan Stadium scoreboard and a photo I took at a game of that endzone. Guys, it's...it's...beautiful.
* Keep in mind that these two photos are to scale with each stadium photo, HOWEVER they are NOT to scale with each other. Also, I'm assuming that MSU's 3D rendering was correct and to scale.

I just got a Final Four ticket.
As the ladies will tell you, if you have it, size matters.

Holy shit. I did not realize it was going to be THAT much bigger.
BONER FREAKING JAMS
What of the north Trevor? WHAT OF THE NORTH?!
For the love of Trevor...™
It moved, Jerry! It moved!
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
We shall fight in it's glorious shade!
Well, we are going from one of the smallest in D1 to one of the top 10 largest screens I believe.
lets all do this with our dicks!
I'm glad I wore green boxers today... because now I'm sporting our school's colors.
The sight of this may make a testicle explode.
No. 4 to be exact.
Lots of empty seats.
Couldn't find a pic of MSU vs. Texas Tech, eh?

Awesome. Can't wait!
Can we get a little Mike Hart and Flyin' Denicos worked in there?
We are building our very own wall (of moving images)
A scoreboard this big can only mean one thing: We're going to need a bigger Giant Spartan statue. Come on, people! Back to the drawing board. This is not a drill!
From #72 to #4. #2 East of the Mississippi.
Quite an upgrade.

I bet the new scoreboard will make it louder inside the stadium as well by closing in the one side much more than it was before.
Thanks for showing us this Trevor. That looks incredible when put in proper context.
For those who were saying it's now the 4th largest in D1, do you know what the top 5 or so are?
The north was a little trickier with the "video ribbon" which overlays on top of where the old scoreboard was. I think this is a pretty good estimation based on how the field lined up, etc.
