>> The USFL is back.
The USFL announced Thursday it will begin a new spring league in 2022 with Fox Sports as its television partner.
The league will have the rights to old USFL team names, including classics like the New Jersey Generals, Oakland Invaders and Houston Gamblers.
The original USFL began in 1983 and ceased in 1986 after it moved to the fall to compete with the NFL.

But the USFL did have big names such as Herschel Walker, Jim Kelly, Steve Young and Reggie White.
At least initially, the new league is not expected to compete for top-level NFL talent.
The league will have a minimum of eight teams. It is being co-founded by Brian Woods, the CEO of The Spring League, which also airs on Fox. The Spring League is continuing.
Fox Sports owns a minority equity stake in the new company that owns the USFL.
Fox MUST be HAPPY with the TSL ratings and performance. Its also a cock block on the XFL's return.
Hell bring VM in, may be XFL can work with new USFL instead of trying to squeeze square peg in round hole of CFL.
