USFL to play all games in UAB's new stadium
The USFL, which is starting in 2022, has agreed to play all games its first year at the new stadium in Birmingham where UAB plays.

This is somewhat Tiger Related because of the stadium discussions. If the USFL is successful, what would the Showboats do in the future?

I bet they don't sign Manziel as qb and hire Singletary as HC.
Can you think of a more mis-matched duo?

They most certainly wouldn’t need a 58,000 capacity stadium for their games. 25-30,000 empty seats do nothing for game day atmosphere.

Probably a smaller stadium would be better. They could be a spring tenant for a new 35-40000 seat stadium somewhere.

It's not UAB's stadium. They have no choice.

$1 says the USFL won't be in business in 2025.

I disagree. Spring football leagues always do well.

Agree, the original USFL did very well until Trump's ego got in the way

That’s a common theme for him.
Granted, it was him and a few other owners.

Trump treated it as a business deal. Instead of building the league up, he wanted to merge with the NFL and reap the reward. Not sure his ego had much to do with it, just his desire to make a profit.

That's not TDS, Jethro, he tried to muscle the NFL and it backfired on him. This isn't political genius.
