Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: 2018-2019 Schedules

Can this talk of FBS football be moved into general discussion or UB football? This is a board for UB basketball's 2018-2019 schedule. Lol.

Agreed. When I made the comparison to Gonzaga I was speaking in a general basketball sense.

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...

Preach on. I’m afraid we got sucked in by a Bonnie fan. Let the wins silence all.

Make no mistake about it I am not saying we are what Gonzaga is now. But once upon a time Gonzaga was an up and coming mid major in the same position we are now. Growing pains that come along with winning in a non power conference. And no way should we drop football. At the end of the day football, love it or hate it,  is the biggest money maker.

Looks like Wes is going to play ball in Italy.  Happy that he gets a shot to play professionally but boy do I wish we could have him back for this season.  He was clutch and brought a sense of calmness when things got intense.  I only hope that guys like Jordan, Caruthers and Graves learned from him while he was here. The PG position beyond Jordan is there for the taking.  If Segu is a quick study, by February he could have a major role.

I’m afraid we find ourselves in the same position that the likes of Gonzaga once found themselves, an up and coming mid major that no P5 conference team wants to schedule on the road.  Therefore it is imperative that we play the likes of Syracuse, West Virginia and Marquette (even if it’s on the road). But also find our way into some of these early season tournaments. Which is why I disappointed in the field for this Belfast classic.  But hey it’s exposure. That all said I’m ok with the schedule. Just wish we had better quality teams coming to Alumni. If not a P5 school someone better than a St. Francis.

And we better hope SIU is good, otherwise playing them twice will hurt us in the metrics.

Aren’t we supposed to get two home games as part of this Belfast Tournament? Given the field I wouldn’t classify them as “big home games”, but they will be home games nonetheless.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Gabe Grant From Houston to UB

The additions of Johnson and Grant are smart moves by Oats and the staff. First off it eases the burden of having to recruit 5 prospects. We are a program very much on the rise but I think we can all agree getting 5 recruits in one off season would be hard. But 3 recruits is more doable. That said I don’t think it’s fair to expect either of these guys to become Fletcher. That man is a beast. I think we would be happy if they come in provide senior leadership and contribute. The future of this team is Segu and Williams. Add Grant and Johnson as solid role players and continue to recruit 3 star and higher prospects (hopefully a few athletic bigs)  then we can maintain elite mid major status.

According to this website we will be playing the Milwaukee Panthers then we would play either San Francisco or Stephen F. Austin in Belfast. I think we all agree it’s a weak overall field, but I would love to play SFA. They were a tourney team last year and could be again this season. They are the only quality opponent in the field. This isn’t official but perhaps it’s an early indication.
