BLITZ TRIVIA

--
As was the case with the regular college draft, George Allen worked the USFL territorial selection process like a master.
--
In the 1983 territorial draft, for example, he used some of his 25 territorial selections on players he knew the Blitz wouldn't sign.
--
The reason?  Allen figured he could trade their rights to another USFL team and get a player or future draft pick in return, or if the price wasn't right, keep them out of the USFL altogether - and from competing with the Blitz on the field.
