College GameDay in NYC
« on: September 22, 2017, 06:42:34 AM »
College GameDay is in NYC this Saturday morning. Would be cool if there were some local alumni show up there in UB gear. Maybe even hold up "Buffalo is New York's college team" or similiar signs.

Quote from: Buffalonian on NYBI
"Why dont they get any support from the community?"  "Wheres the community support"  Why?  Ill give you one reason, they just bastardized themselves to New York City, thats why.

Why should anyone in NYC give a crap about the University at Buffalo?

"Don’t give me that WNY is getting favorable treatment here. WNY was getting screwed for years and this bill does very little to equalize things. We don’t want to hold back SB/BU & UA but UB has been working on 2020 for 5 years. Don’t say, ‘Because you’re at the finish line you have to wait for us'"

Was going to make the trip with the UB flag that I got on CGD last year and a smaller "University at Buffalo" flag, but the train schedule getting out of NYC would make me miss the first quarter of the FAU game.

Looking to still make a CGD appearance this year though...looking like November 11 might be possible if they go to Knoxville.  Gotta represent the Bulls.
So, thunder through, Go Blue! Give a Cheer, never fear!

Every FBS school in the country seems to have representation on Gameday in NYC except for the only school in FBS that actually represents the state of NY. The Syracuse Orange is dancing around Times Square on national TV while Victor E Bull is MIA. Yet another athletic department marketing fail in the post Danny White era.

Would have gone to it, but decided to go to UB game in person.

Could it be because Syracuse is on ESPN2 today and UB is not on an ESPN cable channel?

It is not.  Marist, Wagner, Stony Brook, Rutgers, Fordham all have representation on the show today too.  Do not see UAlbany, UB, Cornell, Colgate, Columbia. Though I imagine Columbia is on there I just haven't seen them yet.

Rutgers is even on a rival network today(BTN), yet their Knight is on camera dancing around.

How many UB alums are there in NYC?

GCD has nothing to do with TV rights. They go to games all the time that are featured on stations other than ESPN.

Even Maritime College made it on.
