Looking things over, the 2014 ohio state team might actually beat any of these xfl teams. Barrett is probably not too much worse than cardale, and that team also gets zeke, michael thomas, joey bosa, eli apple, lattimore, conley, eiflein, so a lot of nfl talent/a few elite talents too.

The linebacking would be hot trash, but they might beat an xfl team.

Yes the top college teams would probably compete and possibly beat the XFL teams. I just dispute that it would be a blowout.

Also keep in mind these guys have played 1-2 games together.

Do they use a running clock. Should have stopped after the prior incompletion.

The game clock operators have been atrocious all season. It's supposed to stop even on a completion until 20 seconda on the play clock.

Landry Jones isn't good. Johnson I can see shaking off the rust to the level that he could be NFL quality, but that's about it.

I think it would be a blow out, assuming we are talking the elite programs with 5* o-line and d-line

most of these guys are like the last man in on a practice squad at best

I would say, assuming everyone is healthy, this past season's Alabama or Clemson team could probably blow out either of the 0-2 XFL teams.

There's what, 19 NFL quality talents on Alabama's starting lineup right now? (NFL quality = projected to be drafted at all or first 2 rounds in the following season's draft)

LSU and Ohio State might be much closer/possible losses, Even with Burrow and Fields.

A 19-20 year old five star will most of the time still be way under developed next to a 25-27 year old man playing football. LSU could probably score a lot of points, but they’d have a hard time stopping the offense.

I don't really know for sure if a college team could beat them but it's conceivable. The absolute worst NFL team ie the Bengals would beat the DC Defenders 77-0 or some shit.

Tampa looking much better this week. Entertaining game so far and I'm loving what the extra point rules bring to the table.
