Anyone out there................?
Stocks still trading, website's still up,
If a USBL tree falls in the forest, does anyone hear?
TEN- help us out, whats up?
No Gary or Delaware. But they forgot to remove Albany. Its seems like they're
at least going to try and start back up next season. We probably won't
really know whats going on until March or April.

To bad they lost them...Had the league done a better job promoting the
south central region, it may have been a different story. It seems like the
USBL has gotten kind of ABA'ish with the way it treats its fans and "model"
This is the first evidence (if it is really any evidence) that the Patroons might actually consider returning to the USBL. I assume they haven't been taken off the website became they haven't formally said they are leaving the league.
That name itself is a turn off.
I've been a big USBL/Cagerz fan since Day 1, but I would say Salina isn't going to buy into this new league, especially if games are held at Kansas Wesleyan instead of the BiCenter.
From Dan Krieger:
United States Basketball League: The USBL announced it will not play a 2008 season, but the league plans to pursue expansion franchises for its start up the following season. Apparently, only the Brooklyn Kings franchise was committed to returning in 2008. The teams from Kansas (Salina), Oklahoma (Enid) and Dodge City were trying to form a six-team league in the Midwest that could include the cities of Wichita (KS), Kearney (NE) and Omaha (NE).
Not sure what I'll do with my free time now. I only missed two home games in their entire stay in Salina and even hit a few road games to Dodge, Oklahoma and Kearney NE.
