New Scoreboard & Sound System for Mariucci

New Scoreboard & Sound System for Mariucci

A brand new scoreboard and sound system will be added to both Mariucci and Williams Arena's this summer. On Thursday (5/10), the UofM Board of Regents approved a $8 million dollar loan to pay for the improvements to both arena's.

Mariucci's new HD video screen will be roughly 11.6 feet tall and 14.9 feet wide. The old video board at Mariucci was 6 X 8 in size... In addition to the new scoreboards and sound, Mariucci and Williams will also get ribbon boards to go around the arena. For Mariucci the new ribbon board will be in front of the suites, club room and press box. It should be a spectacular addition... The last thing approved is production studio that will be built at TCF Bank Stadium to produce the video board content for Mariucci, Williams, and TCF Bank Stadium.

For the fans, I think the new sound system will be greatly appreciated. For years people have complained about how bad the sound has been at Mariucci. Hopefully now you'll be able to hear what rink announcer Jamie Verbrugge actually says in his little responses after announcing "1 minute remaining in the period".

Below is a concept of what the scoreboard at Mariucci will look like. Obviously this is not final, but it at least gives you a good idea of what it will look like.... Welcome to the 21st century Mariucci!!! Is it October yet?!?!

Minneapolis, MN - What a difference a week can make.

After a disappointing, winless weekend at the North Star College Cup, the Gophers (14-12-0 Overall, 9-2-0 B1G) rode the best game of the year from Taylor Cammarata, along with a fair number of excellent saves by Eric Schierhorn, to earn a hard-fought 4-1 victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions (16-8-3, 6-5-0) Friday night.

The win, combined with a Friday Michigan overtime loss against Michigan State, propelled Minnesota into first place alone in t...

Gophers Fall 3-2 to Mavericks


St. Paul – Minnesota entered the North Star College Cup well aware of their recent struggles against their in-state rivals. They leave the weekend with two more losses falling 4-2 to Bemidji State, 3-2 to Minnesota State, and are now 1-12 in their last 13 games against the Beavers, Bulldogs, Huskies, and Mavericks.

“It’s not like we take these games easier, or lighter than other games, we have these marked on our calendar as I assume they do too,” said Justin Kloos. “But for some reason we’ve just came up short of the last almost year and a half now.”

Kloos scored in his seventh consecutive ...
