Bob Stoops to the XFL

Mr. Bungle : 2/7/2019 10:36 am
He'll coach and GM the Dallas team.

Quote:
The XFL will return to action with a 10-week regular season beginning in February 2020, just after the Super Bowl. It’s the second version of the league led by WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. Oliver Luck, the former athletic director at West Virginia, left a position with the NCAA in June in order to become the XFL’s commissioner and CEO.

“It’ll be challenging for sure. If it wasn’t, I wouldn’t do it,” Stoops told KWTV. “And if it’s not fun I won’t do it. But I respect the guys running things. But this is ‘real football.’ If it was something goofy or have those old goofy names, I wouldn’t be associated with it.”

I doubt it will be successful

But I'll say this, at least this time Vince is smart enough to step back and let other people with experience run things. So he's got a better chance this time I guess.

Vince is a smart guy. He has probably been thinking about how to do things differently since 2001. It might work.
There have been rumors  
Matt in SGS : 2/7/2019 12:03 pm : link
that he was going to get back involved again in the XFL or the AAF. Guess they turned out to be true.
So the AAf  
larryinnewhaven : 2/7/2019 12:28 pm : link
and XFL are going to play at the exact same time of year? That sounds like a tough sell.

Vince is a smart guy in wrestling. Everything outside of wrestling he has flopped at.
