Brian Kelly Wants to Modernize Notre Dame Stadium
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Brian Kelly wants a Jumbotron at Notre Dame Stadium.
The Irish head coach said Wednesday night that a big scoreboard that can show replays is the next step in creating an “incredible” atmosphere at the old stadium.
Notre Dame piped in music over the P.A. system for its rare night game Saturday against Southern California, including playing Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” when the defense was facing third down. It didn’t help that much: Southern California beat Notre Dame 31-17.
Notre Dame has largely resisted the in-game entertainment that’s a staple at most stadiums. The stadium, originally built in 1930, didn’t even have permanent lights until it was renovated before the 1997 season.
