Its GM? Doug Williams.

This has been news for a bit, ever since Doug Williams left the NFL; rumors were swirling that it was for a Norfolk or VA Beach team. Glad to see the UFL expand a bit more.

Hoping for SLC or Portland to get an expansion team; those markets would be pretty sweet for the league.

**** yeah.. SLC. the team would be in a great area as well. Theres so much players from BYU, Utah, Utah State, SUU, and Weber that don't make it to the league that could contribute to a good UFL team.

My city was supposed to get a UFL team.

But we have yet to hear from the UFL. I bet it's just because we're Mexicans.

Yup, even someone like John Beck could draw fans and would be decent for his career as well. Omaha is doing a heckuva job marketing from what I heard and getting Ahman Green is a +. The Tuskers picked up Grothe though that's not going to be as big of a draw with him riding the pine and that being UCF territory.

I dunno if you ever been to Utah before but every time a new BYU QB comes a long, they're always measured up to John Beck. As terrible as that is, he was THE MAN at the Y.

Actually, from what I've heard, Omaha is all over on the Nighthawks' nuts.

Hmmm, what I've read on UFLAccess, they are selling merchandise throughout the local area and selling pretty well. Last year, the whole gripe about the UFL was how it didn't do any promotion on a local or national level. Hopefully Omaha is a nice market for the team.

Aaron Brooks is from the Norfolk area. He can be Vick's backup. Championship.

He was nothing compared to Doman. In terms of BYU fan worship.

Wait. There has been one starter since Beck: Max Hall.

So, basically, they just fawn over the most recent senior starter?

Not only starters. New recruits.. transfers. I swear if I had a dollar for everytime I heard "He's no John Beck" I would have been in Hawaii already paid round trip and everything.
