No pools at the Cocktail Party -- UGA-UF will not use party deck in Jacksonville
By The Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Georgia-Florida game won't be a pool party.
A day after the Jacksonville Jaguars said it would be up to athletic directors Jeremy Foley and Greg McGarity to decide whether to use the stadium's new pools and cabanas during their game this fall, the Southeastern Conference rivals made it clear they have no plans to integrate the party deck.
The Gators and Bulldogs are more concerned that there are 7,000 seats available in the renovated north end zone at EverBank Field.
Georgia's McGarity says "there's no wiggle room for lowering the attendance or seating capacity. The most important thing for us is the number of seats."
The Jaguars removed 9,500 chair-backs as part of a $63 million renovation, which includes the world's largest video boards, two pools and 20 cabanas.
