    Players Drafted to the Alliance of American Football

    Not sure if anyone cares, but the newly formed AAF has drafted their first 100 players, some of which are former FCS guys.
    Here's the full list: https://static1.squarespace.com/stat...00-Players.pdf

    There's more FCS guys here, but just a quick scan, names I recognize include:
    Marshaun Coprich, RB from Illinois State -> Birmingham
    Alejandro Bennifield, QB from Chattanooga -> Memphis
    Ryan McKinley, DB from Montana -> Memphis
    Trey Dempsey, DB from North Dakota State -> Orlando

    It remains to be seen whether the AAF can sustain a viable league, but they do have some big names behind it. Head Coaches include Mike Singletary (Memphis), Steve Spurrier (Orlando), Brad Childress (Atlanta), Rick Neuheisel (Phoenix), Dennis Erickson (Salt Lake), Mike Riley (San Antonio), Mike Martz (San Diego).

    Sounds like the league will launch February 9th, 2019 (Saturday after the Super Bowl).

    Re: Players Drafted to the Alliance of American Football

    Being that teams can only draft regional college kids - an attempt to draw fan interest by keeping "known" names in the area for home fans to know and cheer for - it will be interesting to see how players get divided and how it works

    The 8 teams are
    Orlando
    Atlanta
    Memphis
    San Antonio
    Salt Lake City
    Phoenix
    San Diego

    There is zero representation in the NE, NW or MW. If Memphis is their idea of representing the B10/Northern B12/OVC/MVFC then they are poorly planned. Same with SLC covering the MWC and northern Pac12
    Playoff records of teams I follow since 1991:Twins: 6-22 (.214)
    UNI: 20-16 (.556)Vikings: 7-14 (.333)Wolves: 17-30 (.362)Wild: 25-43 (.367)
    Combined 75-125 (.375) 0 Titles
    Yet people wonder why I'm jaded about sports....

    So far... the signees are already there... about almost 60 FCS alumni in all...

    Tim Murphy Retirement Watch: now ongoing ... so that Harvard football will move toward relevance again.

    In the meantime, I will cheer for Stony Brook and ETSU besides the Crimson.

    Our offensive center from last year is supposed to get picked up according to his father who I talked to last weekend. Austin Kuenert
    Opportunity is unattainable for most people because it is disguised as hard work!!

    Not that I've seen, although they've been rolling out info periodically over the last few months.
    One page on their site says "...will debut on Feb. 9, 2019, a week after Super Bowl LIII".
