Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Shannon Evans

Boxscore from yesterday’s Rockets game. Doesn’t look like Shannon got an opportunity yesterday. Hopefully next time out.
No minutes in 5 games? What happened?

Is it any wonder why Bill Greiner git miffed that students walked around campus with Syracuse and other schools garb?!
Bill Greiner's wife still attends many of the Men's games. She sits right at courtside. I rode a shuttle bus with them to the MAC tournament many years ago.

This is very interesting. No one wants to go all the way down to OP for Bills, yet 100k find their way there 10 times a year, no matter the weather.
I go to UB to watch sports BECAUSE I don't want to go to OP or downtown.

I had heard the only down side to that game, economically, was that the school had to pay for the snow removal. If they could *Guarantee* that they would not have to remove snow the school would have done it again under White.
They didn't have to pay for renting the stadium/security?

I had to pay for parking and then had an NFL-style security check at the gate.  I felt like I was going to a Bills game.

I like the ease of UB Stadium.

Back to the original topic, I assume UB would have to pay something to host a game at KeyBank. If it's a Little 3 opponent, would both teams have to pay to play there or just the "home" team?

Define empty. UB drew 26,226 at that game.
Were you there? 

That must be the number of tickets sold/given away. Full capacity is nearly 72,000. Upper bowl was closed. Lower bowl North (sunny) side was full. Lower Bowl South (shade) side was nearly empty. Endzones were empty.

I was sitting nearly by myself on the south side because I was too lazy to move to the sunny side.

I'm not a big fan of playing at KeyBank.  Last time UB played there, the tickets weren't even included in the Season Ticket package. The students also don't show up down there (assuming the game is in November or early December when they could).

I think they get bigger crowds at Alumni.

When the football team played at New Era Field a few years ago, the place was empty.

If they want a game at KeyBank, it should be against Syracuse or other big name schools  rather than part of the Little 3.

He graduated a year ago.

Just wondering, how he got 4 years of eligibility when he sat out a year after transferring?

Yeah, when watching it in slow motion you get to see they got that 50/50 looking call, for better or worse, 50% of the time, shocker...
I watch the game in real-life just like the officials and I still scratch my head on what the heck they are calling.  All I ask is that they be consistent.   The last few games, they've been putting away the whistle parts of the games and then they start "double-checking" that pea every few seconds with another foul. Let them play (except when players get hacked going to the basket).

If also would be nice if they got together on close calls rather than just letting one ref make the calls.

Students on break, no band, 5 cheerleaders, no Dazzlers and bad weather (lake effect snow) outside. Probably only 1000 in attendance.

Let's look a little closer at those 4 out of conference home games:
Daemen: Division 2 school
Nazareth: Division 3 school
Coppin St: Currently 312 RPI out of 351
Maine: Currently 279 RPI out of 351

Really!!! Can they not find anybody (better).

So my season ticket package only includes 4 out of conference games with one being against Daemen. That sucks. If it wasn't included in the season ticket package, it shouldn't have been included in the home schedule included with the tickets.

My 2 cents

Did I miss something? I'm a season ticket holder but don't have these tickets included in the package of tickets but the game is listed on the "Home Game Schedule" that was included in the tickets.


I'd say 75 to 80 percent of the arena was Zips fans. Definitely a road won and a good one at that.

How about the call on the possession at the end of regulation? They just decided oh heck, we'll give it to Ohio so they can get a shot at tying the game. This game was fixed.

Two refs review the video. After about 5 minutes of viewing, they walk away from the table and talk to the third ref who wasn't watching the video. They talk for another 15-20 seconds and then make the call. You'd think after watching the video, they would have made up their mind. Why did they need to talk to the other ref before making the call? Seemed odd.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Poetic Justice! Hurley bites it in opener

Interesting article:

Then last week, junior guard Andre Spight left the team over what Spight – in a brief interview – called a film-session disagreement with Hurley.
I can just see Bobby Hurley yelling at his players from here. ASU is down to only 8 scholarships players.

ASU only scored 10 points in the first half to a 46-81 dismantling by Utah.
