      Idk with the picture, greatness felt like a good word to use. Makes the fall seem even bigger.

        I think this league will be around for a while. As long as it is not compared to the NFL it should do fine. I would love to see guys like Chris Leak and Jared Zabransky get another shot to play professionally.

            I wish it could be during the summer, but I doubt that happens. That's when players are still trying to make NFL rosters. Maybe have Tuesdays-Thursdays during the NFL reg season. If it was on ESPN it could probably do okay.

              I would love it if they played their games on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights during the NFL season.

                It should be interesting. Bringing in some older college players who failed in the NFL (Crouch, Couch, Leak, etc). Unfortunately, the USFL may steal some or most of those. The UFL is saying they only want players with under 3 years of NFL experience. Their draft will be in April.

                Scott should have some coverage!

                    I had no idea that there were plans to bring the USFL back. I can understand why, I guess, but with the stigma that the old USFL had on it, it's unusual. I guess the people behind this resurrection feel that enough time has passed that most people will have forgotten about the corruption and mismanagement that plagued the old USFL.

                    So, individual cities haven't been announced for teams but the USFL is supposed to have 12 teams and play a 16 game season.

                    Teams will be in the following states:

                    Western Division
                    2 California
                    Texas
                    Louisiana (Baton Rouge, Shreveport, or New Orleans)
                    Nevada
                    Oregon (Portland)

                    Eastern Division
                    Florida
                    Alabama (Birmingham)
                    New York (Albany)
                    Michigan
                    Ohio
                    Arkansas

                    Head coach & GM of the Alabama team is Jackie Sherrill, if anyone remembers him. Very solid coach back in the day but was known for recruiting violations.

                    They also have some strange rules:

                    • No Touchbacks. If the ball goes out of the endzone on the kickoff then it will be spotted at the 15 yard line.
                    • Field goals of 51 yars or more will be worth 4 points
                    • Safeties will be worth 4 points
                    • No kneel downs
                    • Overtime, same as college
                    • A three point PAT from 10 yards out
                    • One foot inbounds for a catch

                    It's a very interesting website that explains their working out cable deals to show games on major networks, etc...

                    Season will run from February to June.
