According to multiple sources (JP Shadrick referenced here), the city of Jacksonville and the Jaguars are having a special announcement today at 4:00 P.M. from EverBank Field. Speculation is that the press conference will be in regards to the new scoreboard the city and team have been collaborating on funding for EverBank Field. Jags owner Shad Khan has expressed his interest in upgrading the stadiums amenities, and so far the team has upgraded the locker room, sound system, and other stadium amenities with more to come. Based on the concept drawing used at the Jags jersey unveiling, the scoreboard will be the biggest in the NFL. In attendance will be Shad Khan himself, Jags President Mark Lamping, Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, Jacksonville City Council President Bill Bishop, and President and CEO of the Gator Bowl Rick Catlett. More details to come via IES once the press conference is over.
