    Bertram hasn’t shown any of the offensive capability that Stainbrook showed. After he transferred to Xavier he was one of their solid contributors. Even at W Michigan his sophomore year he was good for about 10 points per game - although he missed those foul shots in his last trip to Alumni Arena.

    On a different note I’m finding it really difficult to root for WVU. Their fans are so annoying while watching this WKU game.. but we need the mountaineers over hill toppers

    Syracuse and Marquette

    Ohio?? What? But yea Syracuse lost to Oregon today if that’s what you meant. They’re not good but this is what happens every year. They’re great because they play 90% of their games at home and they’re great at home. We will see a totally different team when we visit the dome I’m assuming onviously it’s just as big of a game for us. Gotta get the dub

    They don't really represent that well when they are here though. That's a big issue. I would have loved to have the success a lot of the students get now. If it's not a big game, its bad over there. The public impressed me against SF PA, it was the student side that was empty.

    they lost to Ohio. Id expect them to be a lot lower than us now.

    Run heavy vs BGSU, Get to the Dome, and throw it 40 times. Play somewhere warm and southern, throw it 40 more times.

    I think one of the issues with football and Basketball is that they don't look like major college sport venues. My theory is if you build a 10k bowl for basketball that looked like the venues the top schools have, you'd get more butts in seats. To the OP, I don't see expansion possible at Alumni. I think you'd have to (and honestly I think you'd want to) build a new building.

    Good listen here re Nate Oats

    I enjoyed this as well. Oats is such a good guy (as well as being an incredible coach). Love hearing him talk

    UB Athletics applied for liquor license

    Don’t think we need alcohol at the venues. The point I have made in the past is the concession experience is slow and not managed the right way at all at the basketball games. How would it be when adding alcohol sales???? Go Bulls!!!!
  14. I strongly suspect that we see a lot of running...even on third down by the Bulls. BGSU doesn't have a great run defense, so I am sure the emphasis will be on running, running and more running. Then, when reasonable, take a shot downfield. BGSU is not nearly as talented as Ohio. UB needs to keep the game in front of them and control the scoreboard and clock. Ohio drove the field again and again on UB -- that can't happen against BGSU. They have to get off the field (and I think they will). Go Bulls.
  15. We feel like the Ball State in that example but I hope this team proves me wrong.
  16. Unfortunately when you lose to that magnitude, it takes some of the luster off a great season. Maybe some AD's who were hot on the trail for Coach Leipold before the game have cooled afterwards. That would be one good thing to come out of it, i like what's he's done overall and the team is much more athletic than they used to be. They were not prepared though. And as others have said, too many believed their press clippings of how great they are/were. Maybe against BG next week they should prepare a run heavy gameplan. I don't think the RB's can be held in check if they commit to it. The passing by Tyree is just way off and this time of year you get crazy wind, rain, snow, etc..

    UB at Ohio - 11/14 - For the MAC East title!

    I used the word "pathetic" to death while watching this game. Again and again. Try and tell me this team looked prepared in any phase to compete. Focus, execution, you name it, it was missing. Looking at the schedule, it seems like the best teams they've beaten (in a down year for Toledo) are...Eastern, and Temple. They were picked apart by teams who could run the ball and use motion (Army and Miami, and eventually Ohio). I don't want to hear any more whispers about Top 25. They're a good MAC team at this point, that's it. And I say this as appreciative of the positive steps the program has taken in competitiveness the past couple years. But they haven't proven themselves to be any more than that right now.

    If the athletic program had more money I'd rather re-instate the sports that got cut last year before adding seats to an arena that isn't usually full.

    And UB beat Miami who beat Ohio. Which means we should have beaten Ohio. So I am not worried that Northern Illinois beat Ohio. Last time in UB was in Detroit, Ball State was undefeated and 12th in the nation. Hoe did that work out?

    Yo, I live in Seattle. There is literally 15 pot dispensaries within a 20 mile radius of me. How are you getting better weed than me?

    In regards to Brock, the guy’s role (or at least it should be) is to get down the floor and establish position and even if you don’t have the best offensive moves, draw fouls with your big body and turn it into a guard oriented game as quick as possible. I’m Sure he is a great young man, but he is just not quick enough to fill that role. Especially in this offense. Big 7fts with s ballerina and track skills don’t come to mid major schools. He certainly seems to be enjoying himself though, regularly first off the bench to chest bump & congratulate, and I hope he stays around. He is a matchup option at this point. Use him against the right opponent, McRea should play first tho. We have new bigs coming in. We will be fine.

    Eh, we can definitely move down, or at least not move up - there's 9 days between our games here where a lot of other basketball games are being played. And yeah, marquette just lost - to Indiana, who was right behind us to start, so might jump right over us. But that doesn't matter - control what we can and keep winning!

    Alumni Arena

    This is totally hypothetical because 1) alumni doesn’t get filled anywhere near consistently 2) there’s no way we are anywhere near having the money 3) there are way more important renovations needed (especially the football stadium) BUT do you think alumni arena could somehow be expanded at some point? I’d love for them to expand the south side and put some permanent stands. There’s definitely room outside of the building. I actually think the arena is pretty nice already and the newish video board was a massive improvement but it’s just fun to think about

    Syracuse and Marquette

    Both teams and also West Virginia (despite their outcome tonight) have look bad. All these teams will be better come March than they are now. However we need them to win now. Them winning will only help our resume. So while yes them losing this week might bump us up the rankings we need them to win during non conference play so that our metrics get better. And most definitely we can compete with Cuse and Marquette. What I’m seeing so far through a week and a half is that you can have all the 5 star freshman talent in the world but you need veterans and guard play. We have that. If our shots fall we are extremely dangerous. Go Bulls!

    Syracuse and Marquette

    So, Marquette losing Wednesday night and Syracuse losing tonight, that's 2 top 25 teams moving down and possibly us moving up. I am really not impressed by Syracuse, at all. They are shooting much worse than us. They do not move the ball well, and have very little fight inside the paint. And they really have zero bench help. If you ask me, 'Cuse right now looks way worse than last season. But, it is a little early to tell. Tonight's match up against UCONN was a bit of an even match up coming in, but, UCONN was by far the better team. Marquette last night, same thing. They just got rag dolled by a real good Indiana team. And just looking at how they play on both sides of the ball, UB can definitely keep up with them. Both of these teams just aren't very deep down the roster. At most 7 guys deep on each team. Meanwhile, we're getting production our of at least 9 players. We're about a month away from these two games and I am excited as heck for them. If we can split one of these games, our odds of an at-large bid become even greater.
  26. A nice crowd for the first game despite UB football being on ESPN2. A very uneven game against a very mediocre Niagara team. Without Dillard who knows what the outcome could of been. Dillard only scored eight points in the first half and only up by six points. Hanna Hall showed more smarts but theDicksons players looked lost. With Hemphill out until mid December there is no defensive, rebounding presence. It is going to be very interesting to see how these players can mesh together especially when they play against better competition. Keeping the positive vibes. Go Bulls!!!!
  27. An embarrassing display. How can some of the players say “they were flat”???? Too many players reading their press notices and the coaching staff really blew it big time. All the positives they achieved are gone when they get beat like that. There is no guarantee they can just turn it on against Bowling Green who they have had problems with despite their record. You are only as good as your last game. I was planning on going to Ford Field but all has been put on hold. Jackson reading his press clippings of being able to play in th NFL. Hoping the players were read the riot act by the coaching staff. Trying to keep the faith!! Go Bulls!!!
