    I guess 10 games under .500 in the NFL and 9-24 at his last head coaching job qualifies as a winning pedigree.

    Glanville to Hartford


    But wait, there's more...
    Schottenheimer to Virginia?

    Are or will the UFL games be televised? Don't recall ever having watched one.

    Their deal with Versus expired and their currently negotiating with various networks from what I've heard. I've also read that they are starting in early August this year.

    Marty never won in the playoffs and I never understood why.

    The UFL is going to make hay this year. I can actually sit through one of their games. It's a good product filled with guys who are trying to get in, get back in the NFL or playing for the love of the game after the NFL told them they were too old.

    They've changed at least a little bit...

    Given that I don't believe Fox, NBC, CBS, ESPN, or ABC (Sister company to ESPN) will touch them, I think they're gonna have an incredibly tough time finding a TV contract that gives them anything in the way of exposure.

    Or maybe TNT? They used to do the old World Football League games. Speaking of that, I recall that I was a big fan of that league. I was like 14 or 15 at the time. These leagues need to know that the majority of their fans that actually pay attention are going to be in that age range. Make it a Sunday when kids got nothing to do and you can get viewers.

    He was a winner during the regular season just not in the playoffs.

    Ironically enough it was his conservative style that lost a playoff game when Ernest Byner fumbled at the goal line going in.

    I think Schott would have been a lot better for the Chargers than Norvie has been. It's not like San Diego started tearing up the league when they let Marty go.

    Adding Schottenheimer to the Destroyers coaching staff brings a ton of credibility to the league. Before even playing a down the Destroyers went through two head coaches while the UFL was having some financial troubles (I believe they owed $ to players and Mark Cuban). I'm hoping they are able to land a better T.V. deal than the one they had with Versus, I tried following the UFL last season but my interest in the league pretty much died when I heard that a 7th & 8th team for the 2011 season was no longer on the table.

    The UFL needs to do everything right and then some this season if they have any hopes of lasting more than 5 years. They'll never be able to overtake the NFL, and I think they realized that after their first season, but they definitely should be able to close the gap and increase the level of play. I would hate the see the UFL die or become a D-League to the NFL.
