Enjoying it so far.  No commercials!  No kickoffs and no extra points and limited blitzing.  
Players very hungry and giving lots of effort.
Mixed feeling about seeing Spurrier on the sidelines. Quitter.

Watching the San San bowl ... was 6love after 3 sets.

I am impressed with the organization of the league ... but I think the NFL won't be sharing crumbs anytime soon or recognize them as a developmental affiliate.

I like pigskin though, even over hockey, so, I'll be watching and hoping the product improves.

I hadn't heard of it until this am, when our paper had a big article about it.  I'm a Penn State fan so it's nice to see that Christian Hackenberg has found a home somewhere! (Memphis).

I've turned on the games and had them in the background (like football wall paper) as I worked on some other stuff.  I plan on watching more closely.

I watched their QB draft the other day (from months ago) when I came across it on youtube.

He was the 2 round QB pick for Memphis.  I think each team drafted 4.

The Saturday night game(s) were on CBS starting at 7:30 central.  The Sunday broadcast was on CBS Sports at 2 or 3 central.

I'm guessing this is the season long format.

Just learned about it myself a few hours ago. Sounds interesting.

Limited blitzing?

I'm ready a.f. for some AAF on a Saturday night.  Doesn't look like there's a broadcast on CBS proper.  I'm thinking maybe on CBS Sports network after college basketball.

I'll flip between that and the NBA all-star skills comp to see what holds my interest.
