ROOM TO GROW: In Akron, George Thomas reported officials from the USFL will visit the city this week "to discuss putting a franchise in the Rubber Bowl.” USFL President & CEO Jaime Cuadra and VP Fred Biletnikoff Jr. will meet “with representatives of the University of Akron, potential investors and the mayor’s office.” USFL Advisory Board member Jim Bailey said, “It’s the first trip the group is making to a particular city.” Cuadra and Biletnikoff are to meet “with members of the Greater Akron Chamber, which might be the key to finding investors, and eventually representatives of the mayor’s office” (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 6/23).
