SHOWBOATS TRIVIA

--
The Showboats territorial schools for 1985 included Vanderbilt, Memphis State, Middle Tennessee State, Tennessee, and strangely, UCLA.
--
While territorial assignments had been a little quirky in prior seasons (such as the Boston Breakers having rights to select players from the University of Nebraska), the Showboats gaining access to UCLA players was unique:  the league had a franchise in Los Angeles, after all.
--
Among the Showboats 1985 territorial selections were Steve Bono, who would later make a splash in the NFL as a back-up for the 49ers, Duval Love, who would go on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and kicker Fuad Reveiz, who went on to play for the Minnesota Vikings. 
--
Reveiz' accuracy was considered a question mark by sports bettors, who when posed with a bet on Vikings games pondered whether they should "put a wad on Fuad..."
