i hope this seriously doesn't effect coach gill's plans at Quarterback.  I really think he needs to find a quarterback in this recruiting class that will be the heir to Willy

Buffalo Bulls Football / UB signs Gill through 2012 season!!!!!!!

I cant believe you took me literally on the "standing outside a prison" remark, it gave me a good chuckle.  Seriously though i do understand your point.  I'm sure most big time programs have cake majors for their athletes.  However, schools like Penn State and even Notre Dame always rank in the very top of all Division 1 schools for graduation rates of their players, and still manage to get their players into the NFL.  Thats really what i hope UB strives for.  Nothing disgust me more than when the NFL players introduce themselves during national games they have to give their high school name instead of a university as the school they graduated from (see Randy Moss).  I think with  men like Warde Manuel and Turner Gill behind the program,  I think we'll move ahead in the future in a respectable manner, and not have players sitting out of bowl games because of academic probations or other "shady" reasons.

Quote from: "promotherobot"
Most people think Gill is here only long enough to get to a "real" program.  But I say why not stay and make UB a real program?  Heck, if a perennial doormat like Rutgers can become a top 25 team, then why not UB?  And what's wrong with becoming the face of a program?  

Now Simpson needs to step up and help create a gut major for athletes that can't handle UB academics.   That's a big hurdle to recruiting, and only makes Gill's job that much tougher.  

I think Simpson gets it though.  For years the "eggheads" ran UB trying to make a name through research and academic achievement only.  Bravo.  But Simpson realizes that big time athletics gives you cred, pumps up the alums, gets the community behind you, while you still build on your academics.

It's time for UB to take the national stage.  Gill's extension may be the first step to that goal.

I really hope Coach Gill would build a program that is respectable.  I hate the idea of making up majors just so that the acedemic portion of the players student-athlete experience is easier for them.  I'm also a PennState fan and the main reason why is that Joe Paterno runs a respectable program.  He stresses to his players that being a student is first and foremost is there number 1 goal for there time there.  Football is second.  i would really dislike seeing Coach Gill standing outside a prison handing out scholerships (like some teams feel the need to do to field talent) just to get players to come here.  I hope and i really dont think that Coach Gill would have that happen, he is a respectable and upstanding human being.  I just hope he can build the same kind of program here as JoePa has done at PSU (success with honor).  And who knows, maybe Coach Gill can stick around for as long as JoePa has at PSU and give all of us a program we can stand behind and be proud of.  I think he is well on his way.  Good luck to Coach Gill and good luck to Bulls Football.

probably the fact that the defense got killed on inside draws all year long didnt help.

Buffalo Bulls Football / Turner Gill Updates

hi everyone, new here!!!!

just how irritating is it that tom osborne decided to make himself interim head coach and hit the recruiting trail and leaving his choice for head coach until next week, allegedly...

now i realize that it is a very important that he makes the right choice, but where does that leave buffalo and, even LSU.  is UB just supposed to sit around and wait until he decides and then figure out what to do about a new head coach if need be?  i think it was just bush league on osbornes part.  it shows little respect for our up and coming program.

COME ON TOM, make a choice so everyone can move on....

whatever happens keep the support up for warde manuel and "the program"

GO BULLS!!!!!!
