The Springield Stallions were a troubled franchise in their first season. The team lost ten games by an average of 33 points per game. Off the field, one of the owners embezzled a lot of the team's funds, plummeting the franchise into financial disaster. The team could not afford going to Marion in their eleventh game, resulting in a forfeit loss. The team was suspended for its final game and replaced by a semipro team from the Springfield area for a game at Chicago. The team was suspended from the league after the season ended.
