INVADERS TRIVIA

--
During the early stages of the league's formation, the team was referred to as the "Bay Area Invaders."
--
Tad Taube and Jim Joseph were the primary forces behind the Invaders in the early days, but Joseph would go on to form the Arizona Wranglers.
--
The Invaders and Wranglers tangled on opening day in both 1983 and 1984, splitting the meetings between the clubs.
--
The Invaders posted the first shutout in USFL history, in their 1983 opener against the Arizona Wranglers.
--
John Ralston, a founding father of the USFL, took on the role of General Manager and head coach of the Invaders in 1983-84. 
--
When the Invaders were merged with the Michigan Panthers, Ralston went on to become President of the Portland Breakers.  Charlie Sumner took over head coaching duties for the merged team in 1985.
