Buffalo Bulls Football / Re: New Look for Temple
« on: August 23, 2018, 01:58:14 PM »
MH55, I'm hoping to get to the Temple game.  If so, would love to meet up and give you the honor of buying me a beer.  Speaking of beer, the only Victory that the Philly area will be celebrating on 9/8, is the brewery.  And, a fine one it is.

I have lost all respect for you.  You will associate with anyone as long as they buy you a beer.

Anthony Johnson was named pre-season second team All-American by the AP.  He is first Bull to receive this selection.

This would suck out loud. For heavens sake, can we get a bowl game within 1 time zone of us?  Someplace you don't need a covered wagon to get to?

Boise is a great city.
I agree, Brook.  I believe there were 6 breweries withing about 3 miles of the team hotel last time.  That being said, I vote for a warmer climate this time around.

It would have been better if we got the downtown hotel.

Oats gets his family dream home, $999k gets you more on GI than other places he could have left to coach:

I'd love to read the article, but sadly, I have run out of free articles to read on TBN.

Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: 2018-2019 Schedules

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.

I feel like Stanford coming to UB is a pretty big get, no?

It is, but that is for the women.  Also the Stanford coach is a local and she may be making one last trip back to the Buffalo area before retiring.

The tv money in football is too good

Each school in the MAC gets $700k a year from the TV deal.  For comparison, UB is getting $1.8 Million for ONE GAME at Ohio State.

The TV money is horrible! And it is only that high because of the weeknight games which no one attends but gives ESPN something to put on TV.

...Compared to the A10's previous deal that gave teams about $312k a year... (https://www.vuhoops.com/2012/10/3/3448930/basketball-isnt-worth-much-to-tv)


I don't know what the A10 deal is and nor do I care.


You said the MAC made great money off their TV contracts and they don't.  $700k for all sports--basketball and football--is not a lucrative football contract. 


If UB could get some fans to the games, they could make more than that money from an actual fan base and tell ESPN no thanks for the weeknight games.  But the stadium is horrible for fans so why would anyone go see them in person on a Wednesday or Thursday night when they can watch on TV and flip back and forth between other things going on?

Regardless of how high you got attendance, even enough people to offset the current level of TV money, why would you ever say no to more money?
