The Jacksonville Jaguars may have struggled to field a competitive roster over the years, but they're sprucing up their stadium with two brand-new massive scoreboards.

After a $63 million renovation of EverBank Field, the Jaguars now have the two largest scoreboards in the world, with both measuring 60 feet by 362 feet.

Jaguars fans hope the new scoreboards will show their team in the lead more often in 2014 than in previous seasons.

After spending just one season as the head coach of the Volunteers before leaving for USC in 2010, Lane Kiffin has created quite a reputation in the state of Tennessee.

Because of this, one establishment decided to make fun of the former head coach. Moe's Southwest Grill near Tennessee's campus posted a message on its sign earlier in the week, reading, "Lane Kiffin? Never heard of her."

Volunteers fans will likely have some big plans for when Kiffin comes back to Knoxville as the offensive coordinator for Alabama on Oct. 25.

As one of the top cornerback recruits in the state of Michigan, Brian Cole made a big decision on Saturday to commit to play for the Michigan Wolverines—and he decided to do so by taking a page out of LeBron James' playbook.

Cole tweeted a picture of himself in a tribute to LeBron's announcement in Sports Illustrated that he was coming home. Cole put his own spin on the announcement, stating, "I'm Staying Home."

One of the bigger brawls in baseball this season occurred during a Triple-A game between the Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers affiliate) and Reno Aces (Diamondbacks) on Saturday, resulting in multiple ejections.

Isotopes infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena was upset after he felt he was thrown at in the top of the second inning by pitcher Mike Bolsinger. He then shoved Aces catcher Blake Lalli after striking out and threw his helmet at another Reno player.

Update: July 28 at 3:45 p.m. ET

Erisbel Arruebarrena has quickly learned that there are sever consequences for his actions. The infielder was on a rehab assignment when he started the brawl. Now, it looks like he will have to work his way back up to the majors.

We recently saw a very excited umpire give unique strike-three calls that probably thoroughly annoyed the players, shouting out 2 Chainz and "Gangnam Style."

Apparently, he has done some brainstorming, adding a new arsenal of calls to his repertoire, including mentions of MC Hammer and Run DMC.

According to a report from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Ira Winderman, the NBA is ready to extend the league's All-Star break from a extra-long weekend to a full-week break. It also appears the league's schedule manipulations are already underway.

"That's the model they're using right now while they're filling in the schedule," an NBA source told Winderman on Friday. "Could they go back and use some of those dates if needed? That's possible. But the week off looks like what's going to happen."

This potential midseason change falls in line with the talks that NBA commissioner Adam Silver had with stars during the last All-Star break.

According to Silver, LeBron James was very interested in an extended break, as ESPN.com's Marc Stein wrote in February:

This may seem like a ploy to cater to the whims of the Association's most powerful stars, but it could serve as a benefit to all parties involved.

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah doesn't take it easy when going against other NBA centers, but apparently he won't let up regardless of who he's playing against.

During some one-on-one against a few kids from the Noah's Arc Foundation, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year took a few kids to school in their pickup games, blocking shots and forcing turnovers.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has had an offseason he'd like to forget, but he's not lying low with the fans.

Making an appearance at the Colts training camp in Anderson, Indiana, Irsay began thanking the fans in attendance by passing out $100 bills.

Colts fans were likely going hoping to see names like Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton, but leaving with $100 is a nice bonus.
