BANDITS TRIVIA

r--
The Bandits were the only team in all of pro football to have three quarterbacks with over 100 pass attempts in 1983.
--
Eric Truvillion set the Bandits single-season record for touchdowns receiving in 1983 with 15.
--
During the early weeks of the 1983 season and despite having pronunciation guides clearly stating and spelling his name, K Zenon Andrusyshyn's name was regularly misspelled and mispronounced during USFL broadcasts.
--
While the Arena Football League's Orlando Predators - Tampa Bay Storm rivalry is referred to as "The War on I-4" by its fans, the opening salvo was fired in 1985 when the Bandits and Orlando Renegades squared off.
--
In their meetings before the league folded, the teams split two games.
--
Orlando's 37-7 victory was rather surprising, as the Bandits were a playoff team while the Renegades were considered merely the relocated Federals.
--
The Bandits had considerably more success against the USFL's other Florida team, the Jacksonville Bulls.
--
In four meetings between the clubs in 1984 and 1985, the Bandits won all four.
