    The Memphis Express will face the Arizona Hotshots at Liberty Bowl stadium 2/16 at 7pm CT. The contest will appear on NFL Network. It was raining today but they have the Liberty Bowl looking nice for the game it's projecting to be partly cloudy with a high of 48 for game day (5-10% chance of rain)

    Does Marvin Menzies Have What it Takes?

    UNLV and UCLA are not at 'the same level' though...I really doubt UNLV would fire a coach for 'only' taking them to 3 Sweet 16s and 4 NCAA tourneys in 5 years.

    that's the thing about Steve Alford...no NCAA issues in like 25 years as a HC plus he's taken two different programs to the Sweet 16 and NM to the Round of 32. Bobby Knight taught him to run a tight ship and graduate players...he gets his 'persona' from Bobby IMHO.

    Cal was a pompous ass but he took us to an NCAA Finals along with a couple of Elite Eights so he suddenly became 'our pompous ass' let him take UNLV to a couple Sweet 16s and you'll love the guy.

    Alford took UCLA to three Sweet 16s, Southwest Missouri St to a Sweet 16, and New Mexico to a NCAA Round of 32...he's also available to interview
  6. Three Sweet 16's at UCLA and taking New Mexico to the Round of 32 twice isn't bad at all, plus I remember him taking Southwest Missouri St to the Sweet 16 back in 1999...I mean, unless UNLV is prepared to make a move for Pitino then Alford may be the best you can do.

    See, I would prefer it stayed a separate thing owned by former NFL people....friendly with the NFL, but not owned or run by them for now at least it's fun football that reminds me of the USFL (before Trump screwed it all up)

    But the Alliance has NFL people who care about the NFL's well-being. It's not a farm system, but it might involve shades of the NBA G League. "Our objective is to take some of those people who can't quite make it and make them into quality NFL players," Polian said. And the NFL wants on-the-bubble players to get reps elsewhere, Polian said. The Chicago Bears recently gave Phoenix general manager Phil Savage a list of prospects for him to watch closely during a scouting trip to Bourbonnais, Illinois. "Since NFL Europe expired 10 years ago, there's been a real desire and frustration by NFL personnel people that there's a missing link as far as a developmental type league for prospects that weren't quite ready," said Savage, former general manager of the Cleveland Browns and Senior Bowl director. -------------------------------------- they have no other football to compete with nor do they have to worry about players getting 'called up' during the season

    They pay more than the CFL, they have a solid TV contract line up, and honestly the only thing I don't like is the start date. I would start it the last week in February simply for weather reasons. if attendance is any indication then they're off to a solid start.

    AAF seems to be off to a promising start...

    so it's a typical Mike Singletary team lol...that 4th and short should have been a QB sneak. Hanckenberg is 6"4 219...RUN HIM UP THE GUT! Legion Field filled in a little...looks more like 20,500 there now.

    It's 'Memphis Day' on CBS Sports. Memphis vs UConn followed by Memphis vs Birmingham AAF football at Legion Field. I'm curious to see how Memphis' team looks with Mike Singletary...looks like about 19,000 at Legion Field
  14. AAC has good baseball and women's hoops that would make great 'filler' for ESPN+

    they have TV deals with CBS (Championship game), CBS Sports Network, NFL Network, and TNT...that's an impressive lineup for their first season. They are giving their players two and three year contracts so they seem to want to be around for awhile.
