    UFL Spring League underway

    XFL / USFL merger creates UFL, which started play 03/30

    the Birmingham Stallions defeated the Arlington Renegades, and the Michigan Panthers edged the St Louis Battlehawks with a 64-yard field goal.

    hope the league makes it.
    DC has a team. I wonder if Baltimore will get one.

    edit to add; Mike Nolan is coaching the Michigan team

    Re: UFL Spring League underway

    No team in New York

    No team in Chicago

    No team west of..... St Louis?

    Geographically, it's like a league from the 19th century. At least they are embracing technology. I was reading how they have a 6K camera system to determine ball position for 1st downs. A little better than the same chains and sticks the NFL has been using for 100 years.

    First game was good. Second was a lot of running into the line for no gain. Repeat

    The three teams in Texas (Arlington, Houston, and San Antonio) are all west of St Louis.

    Of course, then I question the wisdom of having 3/8 of your league in one state.

    It is a pretty travel-efficient footprint though.

    Current standings
    XFL division; St Louis and San Antonio are 3-1, DC is 2-2, Arlington 0-4
    USFL division: Birmingham 4-0, Michigan 2-2, Memphis and Houston 1-3

    wonder how long before Arlington fires its coach..?
