Looks like John Diarse has been added to the roster as well.

 

Awesome. I’ll add him to the OP. I know he messed up, but I’d like to see Boykin get on there too. But right now they have 4 QBs on the roster.

Well, we know he enjoys the River Walk.

Tre needs some serious time in jail.  If I were on his jury, he might not get out in his 20’s.  I can’t tolerate a man who hits women.

Damn that is mostly fringe NFL guys on that team. Could be some fun football.

 

Yup. There are some guys getting chances that I really enjoyed in college (Scooby Wright, Joel Lanning, Matt Asiata, David Cobb, Josh Huff). Aside from the TCU guys in San Antonio, you've got some other interesting CFB'ers spread around the league and another Frog:

 

  • Arizona: Trevor Knight (A&M/Oklahoma), Josh Huff (Oregon), Scooby Wright (Arizona)
  • Atlanta: Aaron Murray (Georgia)
  • Birmingham: Trent Richardson (Alabama), Blake Sims (Alabama), Chris Davis (Auburn "Kick 6 Guy")
  • Memphis: Tayo Fubuluje (TCU), Christian Hackenberg (Penn State), Zach Mettenberger (LSU)
  • Orlandon: Garrett Gilbert (SMU), Will Hill (Florida), Stephen Morris (Miami)
  • Salt Lake: Austin Allen (Arkansas), Matt Asiata (Utah)
  • San Antonio: Joel Lanning (Iowa State), Speedy Noil (A&M), David Cobb (Minnesota), Aaron Green (TCU), Cole Hunt (TCU), Nick Orr (TCU), John Diarse (TCU)
  • San Diego: Bishop Sankey (Washington)

 

I'm really interested to see how fans turn out in Memphis, Salt Lake, Birmingham, and San Antonio. 

 

And check out their list of coaches:

 

  • Orlando: Steve Spurrier
  • Atlanta: Brad Childress
  • Memphis: Mike Singletary
  • Salt Lake: Dennis Erickson
  • Phoenix: Rick Neuheisel
  • San Diego: Mike Martz
  • Birmingham: Tim Lewis
  • San Antonio: Mike Riley

Those are some solid coaches. You know they're doing it because they love football, not because of the money.

I wonder if this AAF thing will get any coverage in the Austin media.

 

Maybe if they hang on until March Madness is done.

This whole thing is pretty disappointing.  I really like having live football games as an option to watch this spring.  I'd been rooting for San Antonio because of all the TCU connections, but had also enjoyed watching Garrett Gilbert playing for the Ol' Ball Coach.

 

Two interesting AAF-related news items today.  One is a pretty eye-opening report on players being left with unpaid medical and housing bills: 

 

Deadspin: AAF's sudden collapse leaves players high and dry

 

The other is pretty bittersweet, given the league's stated intention of becoming a developmental league to complement the NFL:

 

ESPN: Chiefs sign Keith Reaser, CB from the AAF's Orlando Apollos

I read about this yesterday. Some of the guys found their stuff packed up and waiting for them in the hotel lobby when they returned from the final practice. Others had to pay their own way to get home from their work city. Most of them aren't getting paid from the last week of play. I feel so bad for our Frogs. :(

I heard that an investor lost $10 million. Typically that is something reserved for Michigan football...

 

 

Edit: Looks like Jim Harbaugh only makes $7 million base...

$70 million was the number being passed around right after they folded, at least that's what Dundon's share was.

Only $52 million for Harbaugh's contract...he two quits two-weeks before the playoffs.
