If you didn't know, there's a new professional football league starting up the week after the Superbowl called The Alliance of American Football (AAF). It will run from the beginning of February through the end of April and will bridge the gap between the Superbowl and the NFL draft. It will initially have 8 teams. Also in 2020 the XFL will start up again, play during the spring, and initially have 10 teams. Assuming these leagues last more than one season and begin to thrive, I predict that we will see more and more juniors declaring for the NFL each year and then using these two leagues as a soft landing if they don't make it. We are already starting to see juniors sitting out bowl games. I think this trend will start to impact the regular season as well. There may be some juniors who decide to sit out all of November if their team is no longer in the running for a championship. When there's money to be made in the professional leagues, then why keep playing for free in college? What do you guys think? Are any of you excited for the new leagues? One of the AAF teams is here in Orlandeaux and I'm already planning on going to two of the games. I like the idea of football in the spring.
