I enjoyed the XFL a couple of years ago but this USFL season was a little better.

Honestly, I like both better than the NFL at this point.

Hats off to these guys playing hard in a league they all know might not make beyond the current season. I wish a lot of Americans could take some heart from them.

God bless.

The Stallions finally get payback for the Stars knocking them out of the playoffs twice in the 80's.

But...I thought this was the inaugural USFL Championship? That's what the ads said.

Say what you want to about Holtz, but he pushed out a ton of guys to professional football from Louisiana Tech.

For a G5 school, it is insane how many of his players were in the NFL.

In the post-game, he went on and on about how much fun he had as a coach in professional football, from the draft, to building the team, etc.

It sounded to me like he was hinting to the NFL that he would accept their call for an assistant/coordinator interview.

What are they doing?

First with no timeouts you throw way short of the sticks, then you throw a bad pick to end it


ya that right up there with many of the brain dead coaching decisions made in this league

if every play went exactly as planned and was successful the time still runs out before you ever get near scoring range to tie it

i liked most of the games this year, very disappointed the breakers didnt even try to find a decent QB to replace sloter.

another thing that bugged me about how the usfl was officiated was the intentional non calls by officials allowing PI as well as obvious holding on nearly every play. unless the guy was taken to the ground, they pretty much allowed them to grab them, hold onto their arms, and mug receivers constantly. that said i liked the lack of penalties for ticky tacky BS but you have to call games fairly and throw those PI flags. im sure it was a league directive to not call penalties because fans hate them, but you have to play within the rules and call those

it really sucks that they broke that guys leg just before he is getting married, i feel bad for him and her

Damn, I didn't know this went on today and the Stars were in the final. That means they've been in every USFL final.
Congrats Birmingham!!

I really appreciated that this was a no-bullshite, football-focused league. That’s the strength of the league.

The main weakness of the league needs to be addressed, though. It’s the average player quality. The games were all competitive, but they were on par with minor college football. Most games were like watching Tulane play Southern Miss.

Stop relying on NFL practice squad rejects for your players and raid the hell out of the NCAA transfer portal. Get up and coming and younger players. Ditch the three years out of high school requirement and lower it to two years out. Whatever it takes… find more explosive players and add more players to the rosters.

I really like the USFL. I want to see it continue. But we are going to need some dudes in this league at some point. Any ideas on how to do that?

Can’t really see a way unless they go LIV Tour and pay obscene amounts of money to top players.

Put someone from the Hunt family in charge then draft Joe Namath.
