Super Bowl XLV III Game Day Predictions
The 2013 NFL season will conclude tonight with one of the biggest events in the entire world, Super Bowl XLV III. Finally, the two weeks of talk and fluff will end and will finally see if this game will live up to the hype. Out of the AFC, the Denver Broncos (13-3) and the #1 offense in the league will play against the NFC champion Seattle Seahawks (13-3) and their number #1 ranked defense. Six times we’ve seen two #1 teams match up like this in the title game and 5 out of 6 times, the team with the #1 defense wins the game. Will that be the case tonight?
Let’s look at the Broncos. The Broncos have weapons all over that offense, starting with the best quarterback I’ve ever seen in my life, Peyton Manning. Demaryious Thomas, Julius Thomas, Wes Welker, Knowshon Moreno, and Eric Decker are going to give the Seahawks secondary fits as it’s going to be a tough task to cover them all. Also, the Bronco’s defense has been playing very well during the playoffs with the play of defensive tackle (and former Jacksonville Jaguar) Terrance Knighton, who has been a nightmare stopping the run and creating interior pressure on pass rush plays.
Moving on to the Seahawks. We are all well aware of how good and how fast ... [Read More]

UNF Ospreys Face FGCU in a A-Sun Battle
Jaguars football is over and filling its place in my heart is UNF basketball. Yes, the University of North Florida Ospreys are looking to do some damage in the Atlantic Sun Conference and even make this year's NCAA tournament. So far in their 2013-2014 season, the Ospreys are 9-8 on the season, 3-1 in conference play as they host Florida Gulf Coast University (9-7, 3-0 ASun) on Thursday night at 7 p.m.
UNF senior Travis Wallace, who earned A-Sun Player of the Week last week, leads the Ospreys averaging 12.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per contest. Finishing with 15 points at Northern Kentucky University, Wallace is the ninth UNF player to reach 1,000 career points.
The Ospreys aim to extend the six-game home streak alive from the Eagles, who currently hold a 9-7 all-time lead between the two teams. After Thursday's game, North Florida will wrap up their home game series on Saturday against Stetson.
As a fan, I urge that we get as many people as possible to the game. Tickets for all UNF home basketball games are available at UNF Arena, online or by calling 904-620-BIRD (2473) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Single game men's ticket prices are $12 Reserved (Sec. 5-14), $10 Adults, $8 (Youth 17-under, Senior Citizens 55+, Acti... [Read More]
