Though KU officials remain committed to installing a video board in the stadium, it won't be operational until the 1999 season.

``It just didn't work out with the other things going on in the stadium,'' KU assistant athletics director Pat Warren said. ``It's a combination of existing construction issues and issues dealing with market rights. All those things came together -- or didn't come together, I should say -- so it won't be possible. But (AD) Bob Frederick has made a commitment that we will have it in next year.''

The size and manufacturer of the board remains unsettled.

``It will be pretty good-sized,'' Warren said. ``It won't be the biggest in the conference, but we're looking for what's right for the stadium in terms of quality and size.''

Warren said the stadium's refurbishment is progressing well.

``Everything's on schedule and on or under budget,'' he said.
