stadium loud speakers or fan noise ?
I was at the Ann Arbor game on Thursday and it was very loud, but not so much from fan noise - more from the overhead loudspeakers.
I always see it labeled as "crowd noise volume", so I believe it's only supposed to be measured from fans.
I was at the game yesterday and both the fan noise and the loud speakers were as loud in there as I've ever heard. Mackey was rockin' and the atmosphere in that building is just simply unmatched.
For anyone that goes regularly now, does the mic level always sound that weak the whole game? It's been 2 years since I had been back to a game, but don't remember it being that weak. It obviously didn't take anything away from the game itself, but if you are going to have an audience emcee, I figured they'd at least check her mic level or try to make an adjustment at some point.
Ignoring that trivial matter, the Purdue sports in-game production really does an amazing job by balancing the entertainment value with technology and the crowd atmosphere itself. It's a shame CBS didn't show more of the students' signs because they were all very clever and clean comedy.
