Alabama unveiled new LED lighting at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Monday night, including a Crimson-hued light show that places full disco power in the hands of UA director of Athletics Greg Byrne, although he is likely to be more conservative than a full Saturday Night Fever attack. “The current lights were at the end of their effective life and we wanted to go to LEDs because they are so much more efficient,” Byrne said. “As an added bonus, that gave us some color capability and we are excited about exploring some different ways to use that.” In June the university board of trustees increased the budget for renovations of the Bryant-Denny Stadium project by $17 million to $92.5 million due to changes to the planning for the stadium including new, larger video scoreboards in the corners of the stadium, more elevators, and student spaces on the southeast ground level. The revised plans call for four larger scoreboards in the corners of the end zones instead of a previously proposed larger video board in the upper deck of the south end zone. –  Cecil Hurt, tuscaloosanews. – Read More
