Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Rhode Island game
« on: November 02, 2017, 07:02:43 PM »
Kenpom heavily weights home court advantage which is why we lose to Niagara by 2 at Niagara and to Bona by 2 at home.  Also his preseason rankings are always sketchy because he can't really factor in recruiting classes.  Some of our likely best players this year (Harris and McRae) are incoming so I think his rating of us should significantly improve once he gets data from this year.  On another note, also worth mentioning that Ikenna Smart didn't play at Rhode Island due to a back injury.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Sr. Forward Gabe Agorgie - Final Spot

I think Nikola is keeping his scholarship for the year even though he can’t play due to his knee. I’ve seen him around campus and around the team.  I’m pretty sure Gabe is a walk-on as they had tryouts not too long ago. I remember seeing him play at the Alumni triple gym during open gym, but I don’t recall much about him.

Nice to get Segu as well.  Depending on what our roster looks like at the end of the summer, is it reasonable to assume both will play as Freshman?

Man...the talent level has really taken a step up these past few years.  Kudos to the coach and his staff.

Go Bulls.

I’d assume at minimum Segu does because Clark will be gone and he’d probably be the best true PG we have. Williams is more of a question as Clark is the only one graduating so somebody would have to be moved out of the lineup but I think Williams is too talented to not start, we may move to a small ball lineup and not start ikenna/brock but go Segu, Massinburg, Harris, Williams, Perkins. We’ll see how this year plays out first though haha.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Wes Clark Eligibility
« on: September 16, 2017, 12:51:54 PM »
There's nothing concrete yet but I figured I'd share, I talked to a member of the basketball team and a member of the department and both said compliance is currently working to get Wes Clark his full year of eligibility rather than just the spring semester as was previously what was the case. Prior he'd be eligible starting for the Syracuse game but they think they have a strong case with the NCAA to have him eligible for the whole year since he sat out all of last year even though he was only at UB for the spring. That'd be a big boost for our team to have him for the whole year.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: UB at Syracuse

Yeah on paper it looks like this is probably gonna be the weakest Syracuse team in quite a while. I'm hoping Wes Clark will be eligible because the game is on 12/19 which is one day after our fall semester ends so he will have completed spring and fall '17 at UB which should meet the NCAA's 1 academic year in residence rule that makes him eligible after transfer, but I haven't heard that confirmed yet.

Basketball Recruiting / Re: Montell McRae
« on: April 25, 2017, 05:39:18 PM »
While he didn't play a ton of minutes, he started on his team which was #1 in JUCO for a good part of the year and ended up losing in the national semis before winning the 3rd place game.  His team was mostly all D1 talent so I'm not too worried about the minutes, I think he'll end up being a lot better than Kadiri.  For what it's worth the best JUCO recruiting site lists McRae as the #58 JUCO recruit this year and Blake was #64, Willie was #84 and Kadiri was unranked by the same website 2 years ago.  The youtube videos below are from high school but it looks like he brings about the same athleticism as Kadiri but he also looks to be more comfortable handling the ball and he's got a 3 point shot, and I'm sure he's improved in the last 2 years while playing at such a high level of JUCO.  He'll probably be overlooked in this class since he's the late signee and all the other recruits have so many accolades but I think he's gonna be an exciting player that fits very well in our uptempo system.

Add Antoine Anderson the Fordham PG grad transfer to the list of offers of players that would be coming in next year, Rochester kid.  https://twitter.com/jonrothstein/status/852282010676731904

I don't know anything for sure but my guess is that Wes Clark won't be on scholarship since he'll only be playing for one semester.  Seems plausible that Oats was willing to give Clark the chance that nobody else would but they made a deal that he wouldn't get a scholarship.  Before we offered Wheeler we offered Jahlil Tripp on 3/20 who is a JUCO freshman but would be eligbile to play this upcoming year based on what I've read online.  3/20 seems awfully early to be looking for a new recruit when we still haven't heard of a transfer yet.  My guess is that we were just gonna pocket the scholarship this year to help balance our yearly scholarships with no one besides Clark graduating next year but if they find someone worth getting now (i.e. Wheeler a 3 star PG) they'll burn it now.  I guess we'll find out one way or another fairly soon.

Unfortunately that type of behavior is found in a small minority of all fan bases, including UB.
Can you please point me to any incident at UB that is similar?  Bonaventure is notoriously scummy in this regard.  I was at the game yesterday and your student section as well as many grown men around us spent more time looking at us and spewing vulgarities, middle fingers, and slit-throat jesters to us than watching their team on the court.  I've never seen anything else like that in my 3 years at UB or 10+ years of attending other collegiate and professional sporting events. It was bad to the point that we had security around us at the end and we were told to remain in our seats until the majority of the rest of the crowd had dispersed.  As to no one caring at UB I'd like to dispute that, last year I saw three Bonaventure students with a flag at our game at UB and yesterday we brought a whole bus full of students and we would've brought plenty more if we could bring more than one bus.  Storming the court doesn't show me you care it shows me you guys haven't won anything of much consequence recently.  However, I suppose behavior like that is to be expected from any school that calls a 1970s NIT championship a national championship (aka you won a 16 team tournament to officially be the 33rd best team in the country).
