I do not understand how you drop a team with 34 MAC titles.

I'm a little disappointed the new guy didn't update his Twitter information yet.

Let's hope he's Danny Jr.
Oh, HELL NO! Let's hope he has a personality.
It’s funny cuz it’s true. Sadly, for me anyway, they hired a “football guy”.

Wow! Wow!Wow! Yes really hard to put into words what we have witnessed!! It is great to hear from so many former fans on the web!! Agree with so many of the comments about this team and this game. Truly a total team effort and it started with this coaching staff instilling the belief to the players that they could play with Arizona and win!! Unsung heroes on the entire team. Jordan and Caruthers defense on Trier really set the tone and overall good defense on Arizona's big men were key. How about out rebounding Arizona!!! UB played like they have all year and as the season wore on they did buy in to Coach Oats emmphasis on playing defense. A lot of the comments about being able to win this game were opinions that UB would have to shoot lights out, rebound, not turnover the ball and not have a crazy amoung of fouls. Well mission accomplished!!! 54% from the field, 50% from 3 point line, 85% from foul line, 10 turnovers and 15 personal fouls. I am sure none of the sports experts from the national networks picked UB and yes the Bilas's of the world seemed at a loss to describe what happened only to blame the loss on Arizona bad play!!!! Wow!! we have shocked the basketball country!! Everybody enjoy the ride and continue to support both UB teams on Sat. Go Bulls!!!!
One of the best things about UB win is that folks who didn’t even know UB had a team are talking about it. BTW, CBSSports says 94% of those who submitted brackets picked Arizona! UB is a genuine bracket buster!

Reading some posts on AU message boards made me laugh so much I got tears in my eyes. Living in PAC country, you would not believe how good they still think PAC12 basketball is. I expected a close loss, couldn’t be happier with a blowout win.
Two PAC12 teams lose to play-in teams, the third falls to 13th seed. NY 3 - PAC12 0. A little dose of reality for PAC12 fans.

I saw a funny tweet that said Ayton got paid $100k for the the season, but apparently didn't get paid for the NCAA tournament.  I chuckled.
Too funny...

arizona pushes off every single drive. have been called zero times.
They did. But to their credit refs let the game flow.

Wow wow wow. What an exciting game. Lots of flow. Great shooting by our guards. Too pumped now to sleep.

I guess there are plenty of reasons to like/dislike either team. For me it comes down to which team has the fewest godawful hairstyles. Plus my Upstate NY loyalty. Go SU.

GO BULLS program first and well deserved!
Right on. Both teams are up against it. I can’t wait to see both games. But win or lose, this is a win for UB and along with the Bonnie’s for WNY basketball.

Poor shooting by UB. Good shooting by CM. Atrocious, one-sided officiating by referees. Welcome to Ohio.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: UB half court shot
« on: March 06, 2018, 09:16:42 AM »
Did anyone notice at the women's game on Sat. the half court shot reward for making the shot went back to 12 medium pizzas?? The change to 12 large pizzas was just because of the negative national exposure I guess!!! We talked to some Santora's employees and they said management were happy with all the attention  and there is no such thing as negative publicity!! Oh by the way a medium pizza is not very filling. Shame on you Santora's and the UB admin.  Our family is thinking of talking to UB next year and see what it costs to come up with a better reward for making a half court shot that is if we still have our present coaches and players comprising our team. Looking forward to Cleveland and beyond!!!! Go Bulls!!!
My daughter and I were at SU v. Georgetown game a few years back and the prize for making a half-court shot was something like a semester of free food service...

Santora’s and, by association, UB should be ashamed of themselves. What’s the cost of upgrading to 12 large pizzas? Many 20 bucks? I know we aren’t SU, but come on.

I agree, it was quite emotional.  I missed FLJ talking with Peck.  When did that happen?
Paul Peck interviewed Stephanie first, then Coach. It was at the table, not on the floor, well after the net cutting.

+1 to the sentiments expressed above. You can’t help but admire this group of young ladies. Each of them, as individuals, plays hard every game, and as a group they play like a team. Can you ask for anything more? I love their motto, from the All Blacks, this season: Sweep the Shed - no player is above any other, they all have to ‘sweep the shed’, and the outcome of every game is on them and them only, there’s no Deus ex machina to hope for or rely on.

As for the ceremony last night, was there any fan in the stands who didn’t have a tear in their eye or a hitch in their throat? Was anyone not moved hearing Coach Jack tell Paul Peck that she came here a broken coach and found solace and purpose in UB basketball?

Good luck to the ladies and coaching staff this week. It should be quite a ride.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Akron Zips tonight?? Bueller...Bueller
« on: March 01, 2018, 10:31:52 AM »
Glad that for tonight's game we've stopped chanting Lets Go New York. That was awful!

The fact that "New York" doesn't rhyme as well as "Buffalo" in True Blue chants is probably the most logical argument against NYBI ever made.
“Let’s FLY, NYBI!”?

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Ub/Ohio game on Sat.

Two exciting wins by the men and women!! The women showed patience and no panic after a lst half of having a tough time against the Ohio 2/3 zone and missing shots from all over the court. The 2nd half showed how the coaches and players made adjustments and started making some shots. Autumn Jones had a good game off the bench along with Suchan and of course Summer's rebounding(23). The men came to play and had great ball movement with 27 assists and shot over 50% from the field for the 8th straight game. We have not seen performances like this from both teams over an entire season ever. The crowd was great again and hopefully some of the fans will come back for the last women's game next Sat. Hope to see another great crowd for the men on Tues. Go Bulls!!!!
The women did indeed have a rough start offensively on Saturday, shooting in the low 20% in the first half. But their defense kept them within striking distance. I guess we, as fans, will never really know what was responsible for the complete 180 the gals took after halftime, but what pulled me out of my fan-funk was Autumn Jones stroking corner 3s like she was in her backyard.
