What is it?

Recommended Posts

Here's something to keep you all occupied until tomorrow when it rolls out. Can anyone guess what this gigantic poster will be? It will cover the entire east end of the fieldhouse (facing Can't State).pic0920071jpg-13.jpg

Perhaps released in relation to beginning construction on the stadium?
Speaking of which, anybody hknow when they are planning on breaking ground for IC stadium? I thought it would be this month because of the very limited time frame we have to get this thing done.

I forgot to tell you guys, the poster's dimensions will be around 200 feet long by 70 feet tall. It should be one of the biggest billboards in all of north-east Ohio except for the gigantic LeBron poster in Cleveland

My first guess is: "Roo Town ... This Is Your Team!"Second guess: "Can't State REALLY sucks!!! Go Zips!"

That seems just about impossible to see that from Route 8, unless there are no leaves on the trees, and you are really looking. Which means you better be the passenger.

Definately something about Roo Town. I agree, that it would be very hard to see from Rt. 8. My guess is that it:1) Raises community awareness about Akron Athletics.2) It will in some way be visible from the Stadium Construction Cam.3) Will create quite a buzz initially. I like the ingenuity behind this one.

Just got back from class....and it appears the right side of the banner started to fall from the roof so i believe they'll be "unveiling" it today. It says the usual "Roo Town: This is YOUR town." and some sort of label to signify its placing on the fieldhouse. Only the left side of the banner was opened. My guess is it'll be completely visible by this evening if anyone is near campus.

Roo Town. And I hope they got 2 so they can put one at the entrance to the Bowl. That would be great!
Was thinking the same thing.
