You thought football season was over? In the words of the great Lee Corso, “Not so fast my friend.”

We’re just a couple of weeks away from the debut game of the United Football League, a new professional spring football league combining the XFL and USFL into one cohesive unit. The first game is scheduled for March 20th and there will be plenty of former Bulldogs on the field this spring.

The eight-team league will play a 10-week schedule, culminating with conference championships on June 8th and 9th and a championship game on June 16th. All games will be carried by either FOX or ESPN.

As the rosters currently stand, Georgia has seven former Bulldogs spread out over three teams. If Georgia fans are looking for a team to pull for, the DC Defenders might be it. DC features four former Georgia players, the most by any team.
