“I think they can hear this music in the blimp,” said Chris Fowler, ESPN analyst, during the live broadcast of the University of Alabama and Louisiana State University (LSU) college football game on November 6, 2021. “They did not put in cheap speakers when they redid [the stadium].”

“Game ops has never been a bigger deal in college football or in sports than right now,” said Kirk Herbstreit. “If you’re looking to visit, visit this stadium and come listen to a seminar on game ops. They’ve got it figured out here.”

Fowler added, “they make the experience fun for the fans. A lot of times, [the university] relies on the brand, but now the fans want a show.”

During the broadcast, Fowler and Herbstreit were referring to Bryant-Denny Stadium, the University of Alabama’s outdoor stadium, home of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team and host to over 100,000 college football fans on any given Saturday in the fall.

One of the largest football venues in the United States, Bryant-Denny Stadium is outfitted with a sound reinforcement system that’s headed by Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers.
