Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: 2018-2019 Schedules
« on: August 12, 2018, 08:24:00 PM »
Excellent schedules for both men's and women's programs. Until we become a well respected and recognized top mid-major program we won't be able to schedule "marquee" opponents on campus. The best we can perhaps hope for is a game at Key Bank Center against such a team.

Even Gonzaga doesn’t get marquee opponents to come to Spokane (outside of UW & WSU). What they do get is invites to very good invitational tournies at neutral sites.  P5 schools playing tuff non-conference road games vs midmajors despite the pedigree is a pipe dream.

Why would we want to drop football? We are on the verge of having one of the best years in our D-1 era, we put players in the pros (Khalil Mack), currently building a field house, have exposure on TV/ESPN which helps UB's brand to attract future students and we have income from the TV/MAC deal just to list a few reasons. Why not have both football and basketball AND be good at both? Your view is small minded. Just because Bonnies can't afford a football program doesn't mean we can't. We are the largest state public college, we can have football and basketball. This isn't Olean...

Let me start by saying, I do not want to drop a level in football, (remove the track, invest in the band, improve the concert series, etc...). Just wanted to point out that there are quite a few schools who put more players in the NFL at the FCS level then UB does (hell, Mack was going to FCS Liberty before UB poached their defensive coordinator), ND for example, draw more fans then UB, and still get their once or twice a year big payoff games vs P5 schools. 

And there is no conference that plays better basketball that wants UB. Dropping down won’t make the A10 suddenly interested (nor would the Bonnie’s like the idea), American would take Toledo over UB and they aren’t looking in the MAC direction anyway. Like it or not, until UB starts dominating the MAC consistently in both major sports, (not going to happen, playing field too level) we will be a MAC member.  I believe the MAC can return to being a multi bid league. The 2004 squad deserved an at large. UB will have the SOS this year to be one, just have to win some big games and UB will be one of those teams that other bubble teams will be praying we win in Cleveland.

Great get. Playing Stanford in any sport is. The gold standard.

It’s been too long for the Men’s team get this type opponent in Alumni. Problem was we kept getting too close to winning the game (Pitt, UNC). But all is not lost. We’re close to getting those opponents back. Get to the dance about three times every decade, win a game or two a few times. We should expect at least 2 for 1s with some big east a10 , acc, big10s of the world eventually. Just need to be the team that is no longer nationally invisible and a good win and not a bad loss. GO 2040! I believe.

Didn’t he blow his knee out and graduate? I don’t think he was ever coming back. His college playing days are most likely over.

I will never rewatch the women vs USC. Biggest game in school history regardless of gender (unless you consider concrete canoe racing a sport) and how bad we were dominated on the boards was hard to watch the first time. Did want to see a shot at UConn, but 99% that wouldn’t of been pretty as well.

Battle just dropped out of the NBA draft, so the game just got better/harder.

So until this past season, more recently then a NCAA tourney win.

Nobody needs to tell me the age of the tournament.

Really like what I’m hearing for OOC so far. Hopefully a decent early season tourney as well. Those trips are great for team building imo. Finally beating the Bonnies next year will help as well

Dare to dream!  Winning in the Reilly Center?

Way too lazy to look it up but I do believe our last win over the Bonnies was at the Reilly Center.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Bulls in Belfast

Always great to get these young adults the wonderful experience of international travel for all the work they put in, and I’m sure it will be a great time. But will not do anything for our SOS most likely. Even If I was to be in Belfast at the time, and as a alum and big fan, don’t think I’d bother to carve out time to go watch any of these matchups. But again, Belfast is a beautiful city and trips like this are great recruiting tools, take a bunch of pics.

YYZ -> HNL is extremely reasonable year round, only way I can afford to ever head back east.
Problem with  that is the same thing that stopped the International Bowl.  The whole team would need proper documentation for going to Canada.  Although, it hasn't stopped the Bahamas Bowl yet.

I meant for fans...Buffalo area fans could get a RT from Toronto for 400-500 which is crazy cheap. When I go home, I usually fly to Toronto and drive down.  BUF to Honolulu is probably 1000-1500 RT.

Would not work if anyone ever had a DWI.
That should go away after 10 years, or even sooner with proper paperwork.

Not true. I still have unused tickets to the Montreal Jazz festival that can attest to this. Canada will let you back for like $750 bucks to the consulate and 2 recommendations from arresting officer, employer and or judge. When I found this out I decided father Canada. I’ll spend my money in Mexico and elsewhere. I’m fine with it, and I enjoy the South Park movie more now.

I think we need not to think about 2019 brackets in April of 2018.

Why not?  People have been picking their lineups for next year, why not let the lineups know where they may be headed.

Both are silly. But this is a message board. Weird predictions, overly optimistic, overly pessimistic, overly grandeur, all in play. Name of the online game. For all you know I’m a Russian bot. You just gotta be objective about it and play along...

It is too bad Fletcher is hurt, I think him and Clark could of done some serious damage.

I’ve been trying to find results how the MAC and Wes did in that 3 on 3 seniors tourney during the final four. All I can find is that the BIG10 team won. Anyone know if Clark made himself any money?
