The NFLPA is getting into the college all-star game business. Brad Biggs of the National Football Post broke the news. It sounds like the Texas vs The Nation game is going to be backed by the NFLPA now. It had gotten backing from the city of El Paso, TX. I was hoping for a new game, but keeping that one is a good move.
The Senior Bowl is still the big daddy, but other games do help prospects out. And teams.
According to the official website, the Shrine Game is still scheduled for January 2011. That’s good news. There was talk of it going away this year. Funding is really hard to come by. We’ve lost the Hula Bowl and Blue-Gray Game, as well as other newer games that never caught on.
