UFL Staffs - Virginia and Omaha

So, the UFL season opener is tonight.  For those that might have lost track, the league this year is playing with 4 teams (Virginia, Omaha, Sacramento and Las Vegas).  

Virginia and Omaha play tonight while Vegas and Sacramento play Saturday night.  The league tells us that all tevelvised games will be streamed live on www.ufl-football.com; unfortunately tonight's game is not televised and thus will not be streamed. 

We thought we'd take this opportunity to catch you up on the current staff's of the 4 teams (will give you Virginia and Omaha now...the other two on Saturday as a reminder of that game).

Thursday TV

First order of business, we need to set the record straight...no, Les did not show up at Mississippi State's Cowbell Yell last night.

Now, let's get to the TV schedule.  "Have a nice day!"




LSU at Mississippi State - 8PM - ESPN

Bloomsburg at IUP - 8PM - CBSSN

High School:

Cherokee Trail (CO) at Mullen (CO) - 7:30 - ESPNU

Chandler (AZ) at Basha (AZ) - 10PM - FSN 

Cowbell Yell...trust us, you want to see this

Fairly large game Thursday night in StarkVegas Starkville as LSU comes to town to play on ESPN.  

The University has cancelled all classes for Thursday in order for the fans to work up an appropriate lather pre-game (and yes in the SEC that means beginning tonight).  The New York Times has an article about the energy that Mullen has brought to town.  Think about that, the New York Times has an article about Mississippi State and Starkville, MS.  

Earlier today we saw a few tweets about former players showing up on campus (Fred Smoot in a white Rolls Royce).  Clearly there's excitement for this game.  

Tonight, Bulldog faithful have turned out in large quantity to participate in the first ever Cowbell Yell (we're pretty sure the gents up in Oxford are having quite a laugh about this right now).  Mississippi State AD Scott Stricklin just tweeted that over 9,000 people have shown up so far for the event.  Impressive for a Wednesday night.

But moments ago our night just got that much better as Brandon Marcello who covers Mississippi State for the Clarion Ledger tweeted out a link to the video below.  Yes, that's head coach Dan Mullen chest bumping Fred Smoot at the Cowbell Yell.  Phenomenal.  Can't wait for the game tomorrow.


Video: Sweet new trophy room at Oregon State

Nice inside look at the new trophy room at Oregon State.

At the 20 second mark you get quick glimpse at the players lounge as well.  Looks good. 


Dooley: Muschamp's guys haven't shown their stuff

Derek Dooley takes his team to the Swamp this weekend (3:30 CBS game) to play a 2-0 Florida team.  

After practice today, Dooley spoke with reporters (video below).

A couple of quotes from Dooley:

On what it's like to go to the Swamp: "Last year we played Memphis on the road but that's a little different environment than the swamp" - [editor's note> a possible nomination for understatement of the year?]

On all of the different things Florida can do on offense: "Yeah, if you go look at Charlie's history just the first two games of last year's Kansas City Chiefs there were 10,000 different plays"

"We haven't seen hardly anything from them because of the two games they've played.  Same thing on defense.  They played vanilla defense the whole game.  They're not going to do that against us."  

"It's a new staff.  They've played two games where it was over at halftime.  So they haven't shown their stuff."
