    He was also the commissioner of the ill-fated XFL 2.0. Read into that what you will.
    The league had good TV ratings, and it only shut down due to the pandemic. There's not much "reading into" that needs to be done.

    And while Luck is no longer involved, the league is still alive and will be playing football in a few weeks under new ownership. Luck being out of the picture is more about timing and a personal fallout out with McMahon than the league itself being "ill-fated" in any way other than running into a global pandemic.

    RIP to Catatonic. I learned on the D2 board yesterday that he passed just before the new year. He and I both were more involved on the D2 board over the years but it was always great to interact with him here, too.

    He lived a full life but it's still such sad news to me.

    He loved his Wildcats and followed UGA after being on the faculty there for 30 years.

    Oh man, that's sad to hear, I've been talking to him for years on the D2 board as well.

    Bring sunscreen, cash, and toilet paper. Make sure you eat a big lunch and get wasted in the parking lot.

    He's a good guy. Was UIW's DL coach under Eric Morris.
