On this episode, Rivalry Ruckus, the Daneman covers and reflects on the emphatically successful first weekend of the Houston Roughnecks and the opening game in Arlington’s Global Life Field.
The Houston Roughnecks opened the first day of the XFL inaugural season at 4pm at TDECU Stadium on the University of Houston campus against the Los Angeles Wildcats and prevailing to a 37-17 victory igniting a Houston fanbase and a job-loss for the defensive coordinator Pepper Johnson of the Wildcats. Temple’s PJ Walker and Hawkeye James Butler shined on offense for the Roughnecks. Sam Mobley and Cam Phillips gave the Roughneck quarterback scoring targets on the day.
In Arlington, in newly renovated Global Life Park, the Renegades were not as successful on offense in Hal Mumme’s Air Raid offense. The Daneman takes this perfomance and insinuates that the running offenses in the league will sustain success and wonders if Bob Stoops will make appropriate adjustments on the field before getting and #RaisingHell from the fanbase.
