    Dude this show was awesome, i was talking to a friend of mine last night, and we were discussing this, i barely remember the USFL, and had no idea, Jim Kelly, Steve Young, Herschel Walker, Reggie White and other guys played in this league. Steve Spurrier was the Tampa Coach also, and Jim Mora was the Philly coach. All i remember about football during this time period was the NFL. They must have had terrible marketing departments. Donald Trump is an ass hat also.

    Really interesting show. I knew the USFL had some talent, but I didn't realize just how much. A lot of NFL Hall of Famers played for them, but I don't think I ever watched one of their games.

    And Trump is and always has been a douchebag.
