STALLIONS TRIVIA

--
Having been a former assistant with the Pittsburgh Steelers, head coach Rollie Dotsch brought a lot of former Steelers with him to the Birmingham Stallions.
--
Chief among them was Cliff Stoudt, who for years had toiled as the back-up quarterback to Pro Football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw.
--
Relatively unappreciated if not outright scored in the Steel City, Stoudt was warmly received by the Birmingham faithful and throughout the USFL, except... in Pittsburgh.
--
In 1984 when the Maulers came into existence, the Stallions were scheduled as the team's first home opponent.  The result was the only sellout the team ever saw - with most of the fans coming out both to satisfy their curiosity about the Maulers, and to pelt Stoudt with snowballs.
