Gainesville Gators In AAFL

New, 1 comment

Could it happen? Danny Wuerffel playing quarterback in Gainesville again? Perhaps.

The All-American Football League is having a press conference today at the UF Hilton to announce their Gainesville franchise and name a head coach. The names listed as being at this presser are pretty impressive. And the Gainesville Sun reports that Shane Matthews could be head coach.

The concept behind the AAFL is an interesting one. It will exist in mostly college towns and piggy back off of the passion of college football. Plus, they are requiring players to be graduates. The idea being that if you require players to graduate, those who ignore school after their eligibility is up will now have a new motivation.
