I'm sure MWarrior probably has kept a better eye on this league than I have, maybe he can go into more detail, but Bollinger is far and away the best QB in that league...

His team is also undefeated.

Good to see UW representing.

Here's what I can tell you diener:

J.P. Losman and Brooks Bollinger are having great seasons. I predict that the Florida Tuskers and Las Vegas Locomotives will meet in the UFL championship this season and here's why:

[UL]Las Vegas has a great passing game with J.P. Losman at QB, the super fast Dede Dorsey at RB, Adam Bergen at TE (who has done great), and David Kircus as the #1 WR spot accompanied by Tab Perry at the #2 WR. Teddy Lehman is clearly their defensive leader and #2 in tackles. Florida has a great QB in former Badger Brooks Bollinger. Currently he leads the league in passing yards by 317 yards over J.P. Losman. Their running game is good but not quite like what Las Vegas has. Taye Biddle and Marcus Maxwell have done very good in receiving and are 1st and 3rd in the league. Their defense is phemonenal. They currently have leaders in all 3 defensive categories. Odell Thurman: 3rd in tackles, Patrick Chukwurah and Claude Wroten 2nd and 3rd in sacks, and Jerome Carter 2nd in interceptions. New York is the Detroit Lions of the UFL. However though they will not go 0-16. Quinn Gray is 3rd in passing yards, Craphonso Thorpe is 2nd in receiving yards, and Paul Pratt is tied for first in interceptions. The running game however has not been utilized much and has not been effective enough this season. Plus the defense relies too much on the defensive line to do most of the stopping. California is a team that relies a lot more on feature back Cory Ross than they do their passing game. In fact it almost seems as if their may be a QB controversy about to brew between Shane Boyd (who can scramble) and Mike Mcmahon (pure passer). [/UL]

I'm surprised that we haven't seen any guys from UW-Whitewater's past teams in the UFL. Justin Beaver comes to my mind. He should try out for the UFL. He was amazing in college!

Another Wisconsinite Chris Greisen who went to Sturgeon Bay High School and dominated the AFL the last few years for Georgia is backing up Bollinger in Florida. He loost to Brooks in training camp but has seen some action.

so are these players under contract? what happens if an NFL team wants to take them?

Mark Cuban is a UFL guy, right? I know he was going to be an owner, but I believe he is a big supporter even though he didn't get a franchise.

I'm sure they probably have an opt out clause that makes a pretty penny for the UFL...

If I remember correctly, the UFL mission was to supplement the NFL, not compete with it...

You are correct diener the UFL was designed to be a developmental league to the NFL and not a competing league.

Now to answer your questions j_townsupporter I am not sure yet about how contracts work out if they have an opt out clause or not or how that all works. I do know though from when they were talking about Michael Vick potentially playing that the league max was less than 1 million so these guys are not making super large dollars but at least enough to have a decent living.

Also j_townsupporter if you want to follow what's left of the UFL this season here's the schedule plus the results from previous games:

Bold prediction. You got half the teams in the league covered.

I read/heard somewhere that players are locked into their teams until the end of the UFL season, but after that they are free to join an NFL team for the remainder of the NFL season.

do you mean 300,000-400,000? or is it that low? Brooks Bollinger could probably be a 3rd stringer for some NFL team and make that much...
