It's a different world. The USFL was cooler than the other side of the pillow in 1983. But unfortunately, it's a different world.

I loved the USFL back in the 1980’s, but this not going look anything like that.  

This will be made up of Jake Hepner who played 16 snaps at center for his four years at Auburn.   Jo-Jo Harris was operating a flavored ice truck until two weeks when the Los Angeles team snagged him to do kick returns.  He has not played football in two years. 


This league will probably fizzle in a year or two. 


The former USFL was great and exciting to watch.

The original USFL with the logos, the team names, the players - it was awesome.  That was, what, 38 years ago?  The NFL at the time was big but nowhere near the conglomerate it is today.   This doesn't have a prayer of being anything more successful than any of the dozen other leagues that have popped up since then,most of which have crashed.

I was a huge USFL fan and I wanted to expand this topic bc it's interesting

Here's some things I'd like to kick around


The XFL is supposedly back next spring also


The players are ........ young men that aren't 'college material'?


A developmental league for the NFL?



It all comes down to money IMO and that means guys that aren't 'college material' and don't pay much. It can still be exciting football, it can still create new stars, it can still be an inexpensive night out for the fans. Alot of dominos to fall into place.
