They all look good.

I didn’t realize Trent Richardson is on the Iron. I am hoping he is still really good at running into piles for 3 yards.

I can't handle two Chargers style teams. My heart is not that large. Hopefully the Apollos are championship caliber.

Skyjudge? Interesting. I would hope the NFL is watching that.

I like the 2pt conversion thing.

Steve Spurrier is coaching? Guess im an Orlando fan now. How long until he is putting on the sideline?

Wasn’t the goal like an in between for college and the nfl? I hope it works. So many guys in D2, D3 and NAIA never get a chance. No matter how small a shot? A few will make it. I hope it gets off the ground.
They are suppossed to be recruiting the top college talent that didn't get drafted as I understand it.


Some of the rule changes from the NFL.

There will be no kickoffs; halves & after scores will begin on each team's own 25-yard line, the same as touchbacks in the NFL and NCAA. In lieu of an onside kick, a team can keep possession of the ball by attempting a scrimmage play from their own 28-yard line and gaining at least 12 yards.[22] (The original proposal for this play had teams making a 10-yard play from the 35-yard line.)

Oh shit I figured the Orlando team would be playing at the Citrus Bowl, nope playing on UCF's campus. Guess I have to pull for them.

I had heard this was a thing, but had no idea it was going live this soon. I suspect they wanted to get going before the XFL signed the players / flopped horribly.

Most of the rule changes seem smart, though I have to wonder if less full ad breaks is just them not being able to sell their inventory.

I thought it was weird CBS would screw up their NCAA BBall Tourney for this, but they are just airing the opener and the closer.

Timing wise, this should give us something to watch until the draft; it does ensure anyone involved hasn't played a real game (whether NFL or NCAA) for an entire season, however.
