TDECU as XFL venue


#162

I want REAL football hits. I want the QB to pee himself at the thought of a DLineman. I want WR to be scared to go down the middle.

June Jones to coach Houston’s XFL team https://t.co/hHVKV5HCwX via @houstonchron

June Jones?

Really?

How 'bout some RUN AND SHOOT!!!

Will Art Briles get his chance to return to US football in the XFL on Jones’ staff? Would be interesting since it will be on the UH campus… I don’t think the XFL would shy away from this drama. They need eyes on their product.


#166

Let Briles coach somewhere else.


(David) #167

I only mentioned it because I found out when looking up his age that June tried to hire Art to his CFL staff. I didn’t realize they were buddies. It is an interesting possibility.


(Joe) #168

Yeah. And less than 24 hours later, CFL denied him. It warmed my heart.


(Ryon Adams) #169

I suspect that Vince McMahon would have fewer scruples about hiring Briles than the CFL would, but I could be wrong!


(Joe) #170

I don’t know the ins and outs of the scandal at Baylor. But he abandoned us. So it’d be hard to root for a team he’s involved with. Lol.


#171

NO.


#172

Them looking to June Jones as a coach could mean a league closer to NCAA football than NFL.

If so, it’s promising that they are not trying to replicate NFL play. That was my #1 complaint about the AAF.


(Joe) #173

I thought I had read somewhere that Jeff Fisher was slated to coach the Houston team?


(Russell Wayne Sollock) #174

His son who we gave an opportunity to that no one else would, signed a new contract extension and left us without blinking an eye. I don’t care what side of the fence you are on about the Baylor corruption but I want no part of that family ever again.


(Joe) #175

What kind of job did he take? I hate seeing coaches make lateral moves to other teams. But when they’re offered a higher position (assistant to coordinator, coordinator to HC, etc) I wish them nothing but the best when they’re not playing us.


(Alex Whitlock) #176

His son had an OC job that we hired him away from.


(Russell Wayne Sollock) #177

Yes at Florida directional school.

Anyway it will be FSU who will learn to regret the hire.

Could the XFL use the Houston Gamblers name? June Jones is the first step. What about Mr. John Jenkins? I will watch every game if that is the case.


#180

Lots of teams have used natural disasters or weather events for their team names (cyclones, hurricanes, tornadoes, crimson tide etc.).

I wouldn’t go Houston Flood because that still a pretty raw wound. But how about the Houston Localized Street Flooding.

That’s a name that you could market the heck out of. “Here comes the Localized Street Flooding, check your alternative routes but I doubt there will be any.” That is terrifying and is worth 3 points a game.

i bet the logo would still look better than the Texans logo. (and yes, I’m a Texan fan)
