    March 9th Is Deadline For Jaguar Season Ticket Renewal




    March 9th is the deadline for Jaguar season ticket renewals. The Jaguars tweeted that this upcoming deadline was due to the high demand for season tickets.

    This will be the first season since 2005 that fans will not see any tarps covering seats. The stadium removed the tarps for the Jaguars first home playoff game in 18 years in January, when the team sold out the stadium with an announced attendance of 69,442. Those tarps had been in place for over 10 years.

    EverBank Field will also be known as TIAA Bank Field later this year. TIAA Bank Field will be the official name of its home stadium, replacing EverBank Field.The name change comes after the sale of EverBank to TIAA in June and the new parent company will be renaming all EverBank locations as TIAA Bank.

    The name change must be officially approved by the city of Jacksonville and the Jaguars before they can tear down the signage on the front of the building and replace it with the new name.

    Jacksonville-based EverBank acquired the naming rights to the stadium in 2010, four years after the naming rights deal with Alltel lapsed. (The stadium was known as Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in the interim.) In 2014, the company extended its naming rights deal through 20...   [Read More]




    Seafood Island Bar & Grille Is Now Open In San Marco




    The former Pizza Palace, a culinary staple on the Square for 27 years, is now Seafood Island Bar & Grille. This third outlet of owner Charley Akel’s Seafood Express & More brand, which has locations on the Southside and Northside, opened Dec. 15 with a decidedly more island flavor and paint job. The red-and-yellow façade and thatched-umbrella patio tables stand out among its San Marco Boulevard neighbors.

    The expansive menu, available daily for lunch and dinner, offers no shortage of exotic appetizers, including frog legs and gator tail nuggets. You’ll also find a variety of fish and shellfish brought in every three days — most available fried, grilled, blackened or broiled — along with combination platters, soups, sandwiches, pastas and steak and chicken plates. Entrees come in lunch, dinner and “lite” portions, the last resembling a lunch-sized dinner, as well as daily lunch specials. Gluten-free patrons can ask for their fish to be grilled on a separate cooking surface.

    Currently Seafood Island is a beer-and-wine establishment in the process of obtaining a full liquor license. Happy hour, 4-7 p.m. daily, features dollar-off deals on beer (five on draft and 10 bottles) and house wi...   [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 ospreytickets@unf.edu. Single game men's ticket prices are $12 Reserved (Sec. 5-14), $10 Adults, $8 (Youth 17-under, Senior Citizens 55+, Acti...   [Read More]

    Muschamp Hires Roper as Gators' New Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach




    GAINESVILLE, Fla. Via Gator Zone - Kurt Roper was one of five finalists this season for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top assistant coach.

    Gators coach Will Muschamp and Florida fans would like nothing more than for Roper to repeat as a finalist in 2014.

    Muschamp made it official Thursday morning, announcing he has hired Roper as the Gators' new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

    "I'm excited to have Coach Roper join our staff," Muschamp said. "He has a diverse, up-tempo background on offense and does a good job of adapting to what the players do best. The most important thing though is he has always remained balanced.

    "He has had success calling plays in the SEC and has tutored three NFL quarterbacks. He has had players produce at every offensive position and he is one of the most well-respected coaches in the country."

    Roper has spent the last six years as offensive coordinator at Duke under Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe, a longtime mentor. Roper has worked with Cutcliffe every season but one since 1996 when he joined Tennessee's staff as a graduate assistant and Cutcliffe was the Vols' offensive coordinator.

    ESPN Acquires Rights to Arena Football Starting in 2014




    CHICAGO – ESPN and the Arena Football League (AFL) have agreed to a multi-year agreement beginning in 2014. The new deal grants ESPN rights to more than 10 regular season and postseason games on its television networks per year, including ArenaBowl and one conference championship game, as well as 75 or more games annually on ESPN3, ESPN’s live multi-screen sports network. ESPN’s video player will also be available on the AFL website, ArenaFootball.com.

    The relationship between the AFL and ESPN began more than two decades ago when ESPN televised the very first ArenaBowl live in 1987. Since then, ESPN televised a combination of AFL regular season and playoff games for five years (1995-99), AFL playoff games from 2000-02 and both regular season and playoff games from 2007-08.

    Additionally, ABC presented the ArenaBowl for five years from 1998-2002. “ESPN has a long history of working with the Arena Football League and this new agreement is a great opportunity to showcase the AFL as part of our year-round commitment to football,” said Matthew Volk, ESPN director, programming and acquisitions.

    "The AFL's return to ESPN is the latest example of the strides our sport has made in recent years,&qu...   [Read More]

    Indie Country Rock Artist Jenny Lewis To Perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall Saturday, May 9, 2015




    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (January 20, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that indie country rock singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis will perform on Saturday, May 9, 2015. Tickets for Jenny Lewis will go on sale to the public this Friday, January 23 at 10 a.m.

    In July of 2014, Jenny Lewis returned with her new album, The Voyager. The Los Angeles artist’s first solo LP since 2008’s Acid Tongue, The Voyager is Lewis’s most deeply personal, and her most musically robust. Featuring production work from Ryan Adams, Beck, as well as Lewis and her longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice, The Voyager finds Lewis at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent life with honesty and incisiveness. And then there’s her voice, which was already a force to be reckoned with, but sounds even richer, more nuanced, more powerful. Lewis says The Voyager was the hardest album she has ever made, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of her band, Rilo Kiley. In the three years she worked on it, there were moments she thought she’d never finish. But, more than ever before, she knew she had to. The story is best told in Lewis’s own words:
