I try to keep mentally as active as I can so I can't  hibernate. I do follow the Pacers but don't get a chance to watch them. I also follow and watch Nascar. Been to quite a few Brickyards and a couple of other races at Speedway. Used to be regulars out at Clermont for the drag races as well.

Just finishing the XFL and the USFL starts this Saturday which I love both of these leagues!  I am not a baseball fan, but I'll watch the NBA finals when it happens.  You all are missing some good football by not watching the XFL or USFL!!

Personally - I do the "hibernation" thing - and - follow all the league off-season news - then ramp up for the draft.

 

Obviously - I follow the Colts primarily.  

 

However - I also watch the free agent moves - so that I have a really clear idea of who to draft for my fantasy football team!!

 

Any of you who might end up on an NFL.com team with me in it - ignore that previous line.

Any recommendations on which teams/players to watch?  I haven’t followed either league

For the XFL - which ends the last weekend in April - I'd catch the DC Defenders (7-1), Houston Roughnecks (5-3)and the St. Louis Battlehawks(6-2) if you want to see the 3 best teams in the league.  A lot of the games recently have been really close.  Rules are a little different so it takes a minute to figure it out.  Like if they score a TD, they don't automatically kick a field goal for the extra point.  They choose 1, 2 or 3 pts to score and go by the 5 yrd line, 10 yd line and the 15 (3 pts).  There's some other stuff that is different like you only have to have 1 foot inbounds with a catch to count.  (Not 2 feet).  Rest of the game is pretty much the same.

 

This Saturday there are 2 games on ESPN starting at 12 noon then 2nd game at 7 pm.  Sunday game is at 12 noon ESPN.

I haven't seen the USFL teams yet since they also start this weekend...so I will be checking it out.

I was following Jack Coan that was QB at Notre Dame but the San Antonio team kind of bombed.

I like AJ McCarron too. And Cody Latimer TE on Orlando eventho they are the worst team in the XFL!

 

 

 

Just a warning but my girlfriend may hate you for providing this information!  lol.

    • Adonai Mitchell 1.1% drop rate. Wow!!! Ladd McConkey runs great routes.       Based on this, guys, Brian Thomas Jr. at #15, I will not complain whatsoever  
    • I accept this analysis as an upgrade to instant analysis that was a few days after the draft. There's a year of information to go off of now, and it's the first major step to knowing who is more or less likely to be a hit or a bust in the NFL. I acknowledged that a lot of our 2023 draft class had injury issues. However, that doesn't mean you can say they would be a hit if they weren't injured, it just means you don't know and their development is pushed down the line. For some, it could mean they hit next year, for others, it could mean Ballard drafts competition to battle them for their spot on the team.    Right now, it's a below average draft class with 1 year of sample size. That can change. It does depend a lot on how Richardson does. However, I will stick with what I said earlier that our draft classes seem to get injured more than any other team. It could be due to bad luck or the number of players we draft every year, or it could be due to Ballard avoiding injury concerns when drafting players. It seems to be a pattern.
    • Being from Jersey, very hard to believe the Jets didn't make the list. Their fan base is WASTED before they enter the stadium! And they leave by halftime to sober up to be able drive home! 
    • Let’s be real last years draft class is going to come down to how Richardson does.  You can’t give any kind of realistic grade when the guy who the whole draft class is going to be judged on only played five games and only finished one of them.  The Colts draft class last year grade is incomplete until we know more about Richardson.
    • I think he meant if Luck had returned in 2019, the Colts were poised to win it all which I don't agree with. I think they still needed quite a bit to win it all.
