Christian Hackenberg struggles in AAF debut

Saturday's AAF debut, which featured a pair of games on CBS, registered a 2.1 rating, according to Sports Business Journal.

The AAF was announced in March 2018 by co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian.

The AAF has a flawless example of how not to conduct a sub-NFL football league in the XFL. He later played professionally for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976.

It begins with Spurrier, who won the Heisman Trophy as a player at the University of Florida and later put together his best body of work as a coach at his alma mater, a mere 113 miles up the road in Gainesville.

Throughout the rosters, football fans will note dozens of players that they might remember from the NFL field years ago, or even this past season. The colors on the team's logo are specific representations of Florida.

Arizona is hoping their season goes a lot better than it did for their National Football League counterpart, the Cardinals.


Michael Waddell, the President of the Orlando Apollos, has big plans for fan engagement. There were two games that had gotten a lot of fan interaction.

However, for those die-hard fans that simply need to watch the gridiron during the weekend, the Alliance of American Football is kicking off this weekend on Saturday night.

The AAF has already found multiple broadcast partners for the 2019 season. With the National Football League championship over and done, the AAF is slated to kick off today with several games across the nation.

The Orlando Apollos will play their first game on Saturday at 8 p.m.at Spectrum Stadium, against the Atlanta Legends. Steve Spurrier has 26 years overall of coaching experience, and he holds a record for 11 victories in bowl games.

There are eight inaugural franchises in the AAF: the Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, and San Diego Fleet.

He led Florida to a national championship in 1996, left the Gators five years later to coach the Washington Redskins for two seasons, then ended a long college career when he walked away from a decade-long stay at SC six games into the 2015 season.
