WMU was thought to be the best team in the west. They’ve gotten off to a shaky start in MAC losing at Kent Tuesday. They got off to a horrid start before roaring back to tie the game at 71 before giving up a put back as the time ran out. They got destroyed at Toledo losing by 30+ in a game that reminds me of our dismantling of Ball State. Both UB and Toledo no doubt viewed each game as a critical first step on the road to Cleveland. The Broncos gym is a dungeon that has caused problems in the past. Big game. If they’re dialed in playing with intensity I see another win. Go Bulls.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / TBN article on Wes
« on: January 17, 2018, 05:09:35 PM »
I posted this on the sit him thread already, buy posting here so it stands out. This article provides an excellent insight into Wes Clark that all Bulls' fans should appreciate. It also discusses his current injury.

Though picked last in the east, Miami is off to an excellent start at 2-1 in conference play. It’s a two-fer. We win, we’re up 2 games and really three because of the head to head tie breaker. Lose and we’re tied for the MAC East lead and really a game behind with the head to head loss. The boys need to bring it!

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / CI Mid Major Top 25
« on: January 06, 2018, 10:37:51 PM »
Here’s the latest poll:

http://www.collegeinsider.com/mens-mid-major-top-25.php

LMFAO!! Albany #3?!?! Seriously? They just lost their first 2 conference games to lower tier America East teams. Surprised by the lack of respect for the MAC. BSU only team in top 25 and near the bottom at that. Doubtful anyone outside the top 5 had a better win than them at Notre Dame. UB didn’t even receive a single vote. That’s pretty laughable too but I’m sure it has something to do with the lackluster effort against NJIT. I don’t know much about most of the teams in the poll but I’d hazard to guess we’d best most of them as would one or more MAC teams. It’s obviously a poll that is good for some laughs until conference play sorts the pretenders from the contenders.

Meanwhile see our old foe Keith Dambrot has Duquesne 3-0 to start A-10 play. Good for him!

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Bona
« on: November 30, 2017, 04:24:56 PM »
Nice convincing win last night! Hopefully we’ll carry the momentum into Saturday’s game. We certainly could use it. Bona is playing well. They have a hard working athletic team. They play tough defense. While they’ve been missing Adams we’re without Smart and Brock not to mention our star in waiting point guard. We’ll need some contributions from our reserves. I’m expecting a near full house so it should be an exciting environment. With the home court and student support advantage I’m looking for a hard fought win.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Niagara
« on: November 29, 2017, 08:22:38 PM »
Just checking in and surprised not to see a thread for tonight’s game. I was concerned about this one with Niagara have been playing much better than recent years and some explosive players. It seems like Oats had the guys ready to go though. They went up by 20 in the first half and up 58-42 with about 15 minutes left in game.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Canisius predictions
« on: November 10, 2017, 09:07:02 PM »
I’m not expecting much from the Griffs tomorrow. They’re young and inexperienced with the exception of Crumpton. We’ll see some uneven play from the Bulls as they learn each other’s tendencies but I expect them to win handily. My prediction 87-68.

General Discussion / Mack
« on: October 25, 2017, 08:03:27 PM »
There’s an article in TBN on him. They paint a picture where he’s become aloof to some former teammates and boosters. Anyone have any idea what’s happening?

General Discussion / Bill Greiner is rolling over in his grave

Here is an article from Bull Run where a student athlete vents over the direction and direction of UB athletics and its administration. http://www.ubbullrun.com/2017/6/12/15783766/a-student-athletes-response-in-light-of-recent-events-involving-ub-athletics

I had the feeling two three years ago that UB was on an upward trajectory. Unfortunately that momentum has been lost and it seems like athletics is heading into the abyss. Very sad.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Ohio's Jarron Simmons transfers to Michigan
« on: April 26, 2017, 11:17:14 AM »
Again one of our main competitors being hit hard by a transfer with the Bobcats losing Simmons arguably their best and most important player. On top of Akron being decimated with five transfers UB advances by their losses. On top of that it seems our roster only gets stronger.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / John Groce to Akron
« on: April 05, 2017, 11:29:13 AM »
Per Jeff Goodman,
"Former Illinois coach John Groce has agreed to a 6-year deal to replace Keith Dambrot at Akron, source told ESPN. News conference tomorrow.
Jeff Goodman, ESPN Insider"

Groce is the former Ohio coach. This is a great hire for Akron.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / True Blue in Final Four
« on: March 28, 2017, 12:13:45 PM »
For best student section. Let's support them by voting to get them to Final two then crowned as champ. Vote here http://www.studentsections.com/loudandproud.html

I believe you can only vote once per day per device so vote as often as possible. Maybe their success will lead to hoops even greater success and a stronger student presence at all games.
