Locomotives beat Tuskers for UFL title

The United Football League championship game went into overtime today, with the Las Vegas Locomotives defeating the Florida Tuskers 20-17 to win the first UFL title.

Florida headed into the game undefeated, but Las Vegas, which went 5-2 with two regular-season losses to the Tuskers, came out on top when it mattered. A 33-yard field goal from Graham Gano in overtime gave the Locomotives the championship.

Las Vegas quarterback J.P. Losman went 21-of-35 for 193 yards, with no touchdowns or interceptions. Florida quarterback Brooks Bollinger went 22 of 45 for 306 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Running back DeDe Dorsey had a big game for Las Vegas, running 11 times for 66 yards and two touchdowns and catching four passes for 32 yards.

  1. Wonder if the 71 Dolphins toasted the Tusker loss with champagne? And a line of coke for stupid Mercury Morris, of course.

  2. Looks like the Ravens got rid of the wrong guy in the pre-season .. Oh what I would give for a kicker to make pressure kicks..

  3. I was glued to the telegraph reports on this important game.
    However, the telegraph line went down due to a attack by the Confederate army just outside of Boulder City, Nevada.
    Thanks for the update.
    You Made My Day….

  4. What a shock the Las Vegas team won a close game in Las Vegas.
    Shades of the XFL only in a sugarcoated packaged. Fixed Fixed Fixed.

  5. Las Vegas is going crazy with excitement.
    Not because of the game, but you know it’s a holiday weekend and all the idiots from Cali decided to come here.

  6. Gano who was cut by the ravens, after a training camp long duel, for Steve Hauschka. Hauschka proved he can’t make pressure kicks, it looks like Gano can.
    oops.

  7. Let me be serious for a moment, did the UFL spend a dime on advertising? At all? I seriously believe that they got more advertising from Florio’s hair piece for free (or was it?) than they did from all other avenues combined
    I know guys from work who didnt believe me about the UFL until i got them on PFT (though they hate me now for having to read Florio’s rambling)

  8. Nation86 is right … the game was fixed. They should have overturned Brooks Bollinger’s fumble. His arm was going forward. Then, the game winning kick wasn’t even good. It passed over the top of the upright. Scandalous, that’s what it is. Scandalous.

  9. What is the point of coming on here and making unclever comments mocking this league and it’s players? You know most of you would trade your shi++y jobs and your left nut to play professional football at a level just below the NFL.
    God, there are a lot of douchebags out there.

  10. agreed autumn. you’d think these people were talking about pro volleyball and not the sport they supposedly love. its all about the brand and how easily people fall for it.

  11. Next, UFL officials (actually, one guy) will correct their mistake of not scheduling their games in the Spring, but that won’t be till 2011, and by then time they are roadkill, particularly in these financial times.
    That slogan– Where tomorrow’s stars play? Get serious– these are failed retreads who couldn’t even make the practice squad of NFL teams.

  12. the UFL reminds me of Madden ’09. don’t they remind you of those make up team like “Kickers”? LOL funny ass uniform colors.

  13. The game was pretty good though it started two crappy QBs that couldn’t throw in the NFL so they went to a crappier league…but thats fine

    just curious. are you stupid or retarded? do you understand the rules of the practice squad in the NFL? Once you’ve played a certain number of games/seasons, you cant play on a practice squad anymore, idiot. And players fall through the cracks all the time. You’re telling me a J.P. Losman or a Brook Bollinger couldn’t play in the NFL over a, let’s say, Stephen McGee, Tom Brandstater, or a Curtis Painter?

  15. Bottom line, no matter what any of you say
    if this league was marketed correctly (as a “minor league for the NFL”) and was played at a different time in the year (i dont know, say the Spring) and they actually spent money on advertising (god forbid) it could be sucessful.
    And when i say successful i dont mean NFL status by any means
    The games were a helluva lot better than the XFL, and the CFL and most AFL games as well.

  16. “Everything from OT Field Goal, to JP Losman, to 21 of 35 for 193 yards, to De De Dorsey sounds awful”
    ====================================
    And what were Big Ben’s numbers in that FRAUD Super Bowl vs. the Seahawks?
    thought so.

  17. Under UFL rules, both teams were to get possession during overtime. Florida coach Jim Haslett elected to receive when his team won the coin toss.
    “If you don’t score and they don’t score, then it’s sudden death — first team wins,” Haslett said. “We thought we could score and force them to match us.”
    —————
    Like their OT rules.

  18. “You’re telling me a J.P. Losman or a Brook Bollinger couldn’t play in the NFL over a, let’s say, Stephen McGee, Tom Brandstater, or a Curtis Painter?”
    There are at least three teams in the NFL that would answer that: “Yes, we’re telling you exactly that”.
    Thirty two teams decided that the 90-plus QBs on NFL rosters are better than Losman or Bollinger, or they’d be on an NFL roster somewhere.

    Dude, the Packers may suck this year, but they don’t suck bad enough for you to actually get this involved ina UFL game, do they?
    I mean, it’s the UFL, right? Do any of us even know what the “U” in UFL stands for? Do any of us even care? I’d rather swallow razor blades while watching a Browns-Jets game than waste one minute watching a bunch of flamed out did-nothing ex-NFLers and college kids that never caught onto an NFL roster.
    Hell, I’d rather watch rerun episodes of “Murder She Wrote”, back-to-back with “Matlock”!
