Well, here we go USS peeps! It is time for a little Motor City Madness! A Genuine Motown Throwdown! Coach Barkley of the Four Horsemen is at the Wheel of the 2017 USS Nationals! And, the Excel Wizard, the Queen of the Spread Sheet, the USS Official Score Keeper Crystal Barkley will be managing the numbers! (You remember Crystal from the flawless scoring in '15?) Of course, Barkley is going to have a little help from his friends, the other Horsemen, the VEEP, John Albrecht, the Prez Willie Wessels, and of course, yours truly, the MEAN MARINE will be there in force!

But that is not all. Coach will be adding an all-star cast of veteran promoters and athletes including Amanda Albrecht, Jared Spybrook, Dana Spybrook, Aaron West, Stacey West, Jason "JP" Pyles, Dean Nascimben, Lance Darr, Regina Coughlin, Tyrel Detweiler (MS Rep), Margaret Anne, the Warren Mott football team, and many other veteran promoters and athletes.
