Buffalo Bulls Football / Re: 2018 roster changes
« on: August 23, 2018, 10:03:35 PM »
Thank you Vman, I'm glad that you found this valuable.  And, I definitely agree with you, that Eagle's comment was rather insightful.

Since the original post, I went back to take a similar look at each year since 2010.  It turns out that this year's turnover is actually quite normal.  Here is a summary of the past eight years.


             total left   total joined   3 star left   3 star joined
17-18131240
16-17201601
15-16322543
14-15142200
13-14101320
12-13171120
11-1371500
10-1114710

For a walk down memory lane, here is a list of all these 3 star student athletes.

3 star left                     3 star joined
Brandon BerryAapri Washington
Chris MerchantAndrew Gray
Collin MichaelJacquis Webb
Cordero DixonTheo Anderson
Corey Henderson
Gary Hosey
James Potts
Kameron Pickett
Kobe Green
Ray Anthony Long
Rick Squires
Robert Riche
Rudy Johnson

As a result, I have changed my stance, and am no longer concerned that so many 3 star recruits left during this past off-season.  I now think it speaks volumes to the talent and depth on the current team, that 3 star players need to leave in order to find increased playing time.

Buffalo Bulls Football / 2018 roster changes
« on: August 07, 2018, 08:33:09 PM »
Does anyone know why Corey Henderson, Kobe Green and Rick Squires no longer show up on the roster?  I found 25 changes between 2017 and 2018 not related to graduation or national signing day.  Loosing three 3 star players feels like a bad off-season to me.  Is that normal, or should we be concerned?

Good post BasketBull...

imo, it's a real shame that because Kevin edited his first comment in this thread, months after initially posting it, a similar comparison can't be done with his thoughts.

Good post BasketBull.  Comparing your comment from March, the only changes since then are that 2/3rds of Hamlet's minutes are now projected to go to Caruthers.  And, his remaining minutes will go toward the collective group of McRae, Bertram, Segu and Fagan (who takes the minutes formally allotted to Reese).  That all seems reasonable to me.

It's getting exciting, NIU at #60, still no UB yet!

My optimism is tempered after reading their prediction for UB last year.  What, 120something for a team that finished 6-6? 

(I'm not familiar with this publication, maybe they are usually more accurate?)

UB doesn't win the Wooden Spoon of the top 60.  BYU in @ 59.  Here is the MAC, and the rest of next season's opponents so far...

Just to play the other side of the coin, maybe he is just upset that someone took his big announcement away from him.

Regardless, I feel like the closing scene of a social network.  refresh.  refresh. refresh.

Pretty cool that he is also a 3 star tight end, with offers from Buffalo and Toledo.

After being called up to the Majors at the end of the past few seasons, Tom finally got a mid season call-up.

He has hit 4 of 8 in the past two games for the Rockies, against the Phillies.

The former UB soccer stars started against one another for the first time moments ago.  You can watch the forth round of the US Open Cup match between FC Cincinnati and Minnesota here...

Eastern Michigan will be on ESPN+ (behind a paywall).

Ah, I missed your edit.  Since both UBBulls and GetSomeMACtion dot com mentioned + and not 3, I was wondering your source. 
Good to know, I don't need to retract in my rant on UBBullRun...

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Wes Clark appreciation thread
« on: May 24, 2018, 09:22:31 PM »
@ProBBallCombine has been tweeting some of the stats from their recent event.  Here are a few that I saw about Wes...

3/4 court sprint - 3.16 seconds (good for 20th in the main combine)
Max vertical leap - 39.5 inches (good for 12th in the main combine)
Standing vertical leap - 32 inches (good for 10th in the main combine)

Hopefully Rodney Scott breaks out with a big year.  I imagine having high quality receivers coming back would help entice the QB to come back the following year too...
