There’s more football these days. Like soccer, erm, the other football, it’s almost year round.
Thanks to the rebooted USFL, of course.
In the upstart league’s initial rounds last night – they’re drafting each round by position group – several Big 12 Conference alums were among those who had their names called.
That includes former Oklahoma State Cowboys defensive end Michael Scott, now of the Tampa Bay Bandits, and Kolin Hill, a former Texas Tech Red Raiders edge rusher who was picked up by the New Jersey Generals in round three, consisting of defensive end types.
