McRea had more NBA potential than these guys. And McCrea was good all four years. I don’t think Perkins has a NBA position. CJ is not athletic enough. And his shooting motion is not what NBA scouts look for.  It’s a bit awkward and slow.   Harris is too small. He just doesn’t look like his frame can grow into an NBA body.

Actually from what I see, I think Jayvon Graves if he can play point and run pick and roll has a small chance. 

Back to McRea. He was a beast.

Good bounce back win.
Looks like operation 6000 was a success.
Good job by the athletics department in promoting. Hope the community gets excited for this team. This team can make a run.

Watched the Presser after the game. Oats was kind of brutal on his guys. He also said a few times that he would like to sign a new contract.

Can we sign him without an AD? It’s good that he says he wants a new contract. That might mean he wants to stay.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / #1 Seed for MAC Tourney
« on: January 22, 2018, 02:11:25 PM »
The incentives aren't as great as it was like 2 years ago to finish top 2, but I think it's still important to finish as the #1 seed.
Gone is the double bye, but top 4 teams still all get 1 bye.
The first game will be against 8/9 which would be considerably easier than going in as a 4 seed against a 5.  (But maybe not, see below).

I had to look this up cause I couldn't remember which teams get byes.

Looks like top 4 teams get 1 bye each.

As of now, Toledo stands at 5-1.  Rest of the pack are at 3-3 so it looks like there is a lot of parity after UB and Toledo.

Greene is not going to hire Oats.
That is too much of a risk for Greene who has no goodwill currency built up.
His hires will be safe.  He does not need to take risks.  It's Auburn.

I suspect that if Oats starts getting inquiries, it'll be from teams outside of the power 5.  Something like A10.

Wow. Another decisive win on the road. This team is on a roll.

Go for 6.
I think we can continue this trend, just because of the way we play.
We play fast and play great defense.  Two things that can continue against MAC teams.

I did throw my support for Niland, but Brook has a point.
It is all about football.  (Money that is).
So yeah, we might need to hire someone with big time experience to continue to get the funding.

And I agree, let's not talk about dropping football.  We're only moving forward.

Had to read up on Niland.
Really impressive.

Why did she leave her post? See that she’s a UB grad and is in the hall of fame.
I’m on board. She looks like a great hire.

My vote is for Paul Vecchio.  Really nice guy who worked tirelessly during his time at UB as the communications director.

Gabe Cagwin - Seems a bit young to me.

Rick Cole - Good volleyball player.  I think he also ran for student council president when I was at school.

It's official.  Just received this.

January 18, 2018

Dear XXXX,

I am writing to share the news that Director of Athletics Allen Greene will be leaving UB to accept a position as Athletics Director at Auburn University.

While we are sorry to see Allen leave UB and Western New York, I speak for our entire UB community—and for Bulls fans everywhere—when I say how grateful we are for his exemplary leadership and success in elevating UB’s Athletics Department.

Allen’s productive tenure at UB has been notable on many fronts. Since he joined our Athletics Department, UB has earned seven MAC Tournament trophies and advanced to as many NCAA tournaments. Shot-putter Jonathan Jones captured the Bulls’ first Division I-era NCAA national title. And in a two-year span, UB Athletics sent four teams to the NCAA tournament, including men’s and women’s basketball in 2016 – the first time a MAC school won both titles since 2002.

Throughout Allen’s time at UB, our Bulls teams have consistently achieved a GPA of 3.0 or better—a sign of his commitment, and that of the entire Athletics Department, to fostering an environment where student-athletes excel on the field and in the classroom. Tomorrow, UB will receive the NCAA and Minority Opportunities Athletic Association’s 2018 Award for Diversity and Inclusion, a recognition of the Athletics Department’s impactful initiatives aimed at creating an inclusive environment in athletics, on campus and in the community.

Allen has also been instrumental in building philanthropic support for UB athletics. Under his leadership, UB broke ground last fall on the Murchie Family Fieldhouse, a 92,000-square-foot indoor practice facility and a longtime dream for the university that will greatly enhance the experience of our student-athletes and our general student population. He spearheaded development of the UB athletics facilities master plan and has led a wide range of significant capital projects.

These achievements and more speak to Allen’s strategic and thoughtful efforts to create a well-rounded intercollegiate program that strives for excellence in all of its pursuits, and enriches our university community in so doing. Thanks to his leadership, our Athletics Department is extremely well positioned to build upon our strengths and compete among the best in the nation.

As we look forward to our athletics programs achieving even greater success in the future, I will be sharing details in the coming weeks regarding our next steps in identifying a director to guide the Athletics Department forward.

In the meantime, please join me in congratulating Allen and in wishing him well as he undertakes this exciting opportunity.

Satish K. Tripathi
President

One thing is for sure.  Charles Barkley will be talking about this hire nationally.  Which is a good thing.  I love Charles.  He was a big advocate for Turner Gill at Auburn.  Now this.  Good for UB.

Wow. I didn’t even realize he was a hot name. He got a better job than Danny White.
We are becoming a cradle for ADs. Should be easy to hire one. Look at our track record.

Warde Manuel - UConn then UMich
Danny White - UCF
Allen Green - Auburn
Canisius AD. Forget his name.
