  • Indiana making football games more fan-friendly Aug 25, 2014 4:44 PM
    Indiana is making football games more fan-friendly. On Monday, athletic director Fred Glass announced changes that will be in place this season. The most notable addition for Saturday’s season-opener against Indiana State will be the new 200-foot long “ribbon” board in the north end zone. Glass says it will provide more in-game information and entertainment. The board cost $300,000, roughly half of which was paid for by Indiana’s media rights partner, Learfield Sports. Fans parking in the Purple Lot will no longer contend with gravel after the school spent $6.8 million to pave the lot and add grass. Glass says the lot will actually add spaces rather than cut them, too. And when Maryland visits Sept. 27, cellphone users should benefit from a newly installed antenna that should upgrade connectivity.
