The building manajor where I live is from buffalo, the local sports bar where I watch the bills, there is always at least 4-5 buffaloians, we even get the game sound most weeks because we don’t miss a game and out number any other fan base not Seahawks. People is one of Buffalos greatest exports. I do miss the place.

Off topic, something funny about Seahawk fans. They all think they invented the “12th man” concept and own those jerseys. Does Seattle even get the money or does it all go to Texas A&M?

I believe Seattle pays money to Texas A&M for the right to use the 12th man slogan and keeps their sales.

I like this matchup.  For the simple reason that every single National sports personality has pretty much dismissed UB and given this game to Arizona.  It's usually not that easy in the NCAA Tourney.  We'll see.

We have nothing to lose, but everything to gain. Arizona is the team who'll be under pressure because they're expected to win this game. Our guys should just go in and have some fun and enjoy the stage. Win or lose, this year has been great for UB men's and women's basketball.

This point, exactly.  Heck, Bilas touted their guy as having "hall of fame talent".  UB has nothing to lose in this game and, I think, will come out and play free and loose...which may make them a very dangerous team.  Certainly different if they were one of those sexy 12 vs 5 match ups (with a vulnerable 5).

Go Bulls.
The State University of New York. 

Blue. White. Damn Right.

The last MAC team to make a run in the NCAAs was Ohio in 2012 who won the MAC that year going 27-7. They were a 13 seed and ranked # 52 in the field of 68. They were led by 6' 176 pound PG DJ Cooper who that year averaged 14.7 PPG and 5.7 assists per game.

UB is 26-8, a 13 seed and ranked 51 in the field of 68. They are led by a 6' 177 pound PG Wes Clark who averages 14.6 PPG and 5.3 assists per game.

Is this just cherry picked info? Absolutely. Does any of this matter? Not at all.  But if they can do it I don't see why we can't. This year's Arizona squad is better than either team Ohio beat in 2012, but Ohio also took #1 seed 31-5 UNC into overtime in the sweet 16 before falling to them 72-65.

Let's just go win.

13 seeds are 26-106 in the first round. There's always a chance.

If this was a best of 5 series, UB loses in 4.  The key is to get that one win in game 1!

According to the Buffalo News article this morning, we will at times double Ayton.

We will run and hope to tire them out.

Players believe they can win this game.  Don't tell them they don't have a chance because they all think they can win.

As for Smart, Perkins and McRae.  20 years from now, they can say, man I went up against Ayton and held my own.  Heck, we beat that team!

Guard pressure, guard pressure, guard pressure. This is how we beat Kent and keep the ball form going inside.

Oats spoke a bit about his strategy in a video uploaded on the Buffalo Bulls Facebook page last night. It's worth a watch if you're on facebook.

Hoping Gonzaga can pull out the W.   What are the chances of two #13 over #4 upsets on the same day, at the same venue?   I can't imagine too good.

Does the fact that UNCG lost as a 13 seed statistically improve the Bulls chances of being the 13 seed that wins? Not saying that any 13 seed has to win, but given that one has already lost, does that (strictly in a mathematical sense) juice the other 13 seeds' chances? I just was at a site that gave the Bulls a 15 % chance to win. Pomeroy has it as a 6 point loss with a 29% chance to win. Oh baby, this would be huge!

Our hopes rest on tiring them out with a run and gun style and/or getting their starting line up in foul trouble.
Blow up Ohio.
