    It will be pretty cool to have the occasional game thread here for some of these games. In the Spring!
    The league is set up that way with territories to spur interest so that is likely the case.

    A tweet that I saw showed the Las Vegas oddsmakers thinking that the Iron will finish last this year.

    This article from CBSSports predicts us to finish 6th but as a sleeper. Interesting the Garret Gilbert is a QB in this league and we remember him from the 2009 NC game.

    A look at the 'Ham franchise showed 10 on roster.

    They have a farm system. Itís called the SEC!

    I think that in the beginning there will be 'regional' teams like B'ham having something like 16 guys with Alabama ties on the roster, but eventually what I think the NFL would like to see would be JUCO guys who just don't want to play at a four year school, guys like that, in the league, as a talent pool for the NFL.

    When Spurrier left South Carolina he had not lost his coaching abilities, it was his recruiting abilities that had left him. It'll at least get me to watch one game.

    Would love to see Jim Tressel coaching a team in this league.

    Yes - Youngstown State (in Ohio). I expect him to retire there.

    Yeah, Coach Tressel went back home to coach football and they made him the university president. It wound up being a great ending to his story.

    I always liked that guy. I sort of equate him to Coach Stallings in that the players changed somewhat while he was coaching, and he was a bit of a victim of circumstances that he couldn't really control. Yeah, may have gone a little far trying to protect his players, but there was a time when all coaches did that and they didn't have to worry about an all-encompassing media digging deeper and reporting the falsehood. Guys like Coach Saban understand a lot better how the media works than did Coach Stallings, and I think that Tressel falls into that same category.

    Maybe it's the post-super bowl anxiety of not having real football for half a year.... but I'm actually pretty excited to watch this. Especially Blake Sims and Trent.

    Need something to keep me from having to watch the NBA.
