#NYBI?
« on: August 29, 2013, 01:36:47 PM »
Danny White just tweeted:

"Big news coming soon from @UBAthletics!!! #NYBI"

Could this be the complete rebranding of UB?  New York Buffalo Institute?  Or something to that effect.  I could be totally jumping the gun, but this makes me nervous.  I graduated from the University at Buffalo, and as a Western New Yorker who has since relocated, I have fought the stigma of being from "New York".  Anytime I tell people I am from New York, I feel the need to quantify it by adding, "Upstate, 6 hours from NYC, and I've only been there twice."  I know this might be an incredible opportunity to use the New York title to add to the University both athletically and academically, I just hate to see it.  I almost feel like my favorite band is considering selling out, so to speak.  I know it's not a sellout, but I can't help that way. 

Anyone have any insight on this tweet?  #NYBI?

I hate this "Huge News" thing UB Athletics does..

It's that  Michael Bundt is a writer on Bull Run now...

That means between Conrad and Mike the site has two great writers! #NBI (Next Blogger In)

New York Bull Initiative was my first guess on seeing that.

I always identify as "Western New York" as if it's a different state.

BIE, that's exciting news for Bull Run.  Eager to have BundtQCS on board

Could it be Mac and Cheese night for volleyball on Saturday night?

Thank God... I can still get #Beeffalo (with two t's) as the verified, official term for something that is awesome, Buffalo, doused in hot sauce and more manly than cutting down a giant redwood tree that falls on a zombie horde that was going after the last super-hot chick on earth... who will totally bang you for saving her.






That... hmm... that might've gone off the rails a little bit there.

It will be interesting to see if Saturday's game will be New York Bulls vs. Ohio State University while on the air.  I'm sure there will be mention of it.

I wonder if this is how it felt when one of our AD's decided our name was "Virginia Tech" instead of the schools actual name, "The Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University"... or VPISU... or VPI if you're too cool for "and State University" school.
