  1. Past hour
  2. Not sure. Maybe the allotments were returned to the arena if they weren't sold and that's what you bought?
  3. No idea. I wanted to sit in the clubs (a deal @ $20) Never saw anything designated for one school or another. Bought them online through Ticketmaster or Tickets.com.
  4. Were the tickets marked for UB's section? If so, they could have been UB's allotment.

    Covering 15+ points is always tough during conference play. They've already played us and can make some corrections. I think they should be able to do it, but to me, we are going to have to grind against them. EMU is 1-6 on the road so that's an interesting start to keep an eye on. UB now has the 3rd longest active home winning streak.
  6. But how many fans bought tickets away from the school? For example, I wasn't even aware UB had an allotment of tickets and I went right to the arena and bought mine.

    -15.5 tonight, let's cover this one 😉
  9. They aren't exactly good comparisons. Spokane is a good sized city, larger than Syracuse, and there is no competition for other sports in the city. If you want to watch sports you only have one option in the city. Washington State is over two hours away and Eastern Washington is up the road but they play in a weak conference. Gonzaga has landed five star recruits. Austin Daye was a five star recruit and he played for them over ten years ago. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2007/austin-daye-40580 Zach Collins was a five star recruit who they landed just two years ago.. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2016/zach-collins-480 And they get four star recruits every year. They are always on the cusp of getting five star recruits. Villanova is a big money program in a major conference. The comparison to Nova seems out of left field to me. If DePaul started making runs to the Final Four would people really consider them a Cinderella who made it against the odds? And Villanova has never been as bad as DePaul.
  10. Today
  11. Thx, sometimes people post something so outlandish I don’t bother taking the time to even respond but putting fake news to bed is important.
  12. A few thoughts.... The Gonzaga model is attractive. If that is what someone wants to build, more power to them. Of course, Gonzaga doesn't have to contend with have an FBS football team. Butler getting to two title games in a row is something that, these several years later, is still leaves me shaking my head. Man...they were a tough out. Didn't get rattled. Now...Butler, safely out of the confines of the Horizon League, gets to compete in a multi-bid league of the Big East. Loyola, in my opinion, is a bit of a flash-in-the-pan. Like VCU before them and George Mason before them. To lump them in with Gonzaga (as is done above) is not right. Gonzaga deserves their own classification. In the truest sense of the word, they are now an outlier. The Shaka Smart comp is interesting. Texas is a high-profile job. He is paid $3M at UT. He has made the tournament as an at-large twice in his three years there (20-13 and 19-15). This season they are a bubble team at the moment (10-6)...but just lost a close one @KU. Both of Smart's tournament appearances were 1 and done, so the expectation (as, I think, is properly mention above by Dooley) is not just they are going to make the tournament, but it is to make noise and show up in a Final Four (and soon). Rick Barnes can attest to that! In reading the Athletic article, it does give me a little more optimism about Oats staying (and the fact the that cupboard is not bare next year...from anyone's perspective). We'll see.
  13. I agree that basketball needs its own practice facility. Is the Ed Wright gym something that Oats wants? As for student facilities. If you haven't heard, UB is in a campaign called Boldly Buffalo to raise $650 million. Each unit has it's own priorities. Athletics is Here: http://www.buffalo.edu/campaign/priorities-and-goals/UB-athletics.html One of the priorities is endowing head coaching positions, which makes sense. Another is upgrading facilities and adding a strength and conditioning center (which the RFQ for that development was posted on NYS website). Back to the main point, students use the Ed Wright facility and main gym. Here is Student Life campaign priorities: http://www.buffalo.edu/campaign/priorities-and-goals/student-life.html Notice the #1 priority (according to the website) is a new wellness center that has fitness areas and courts within it. (Location between Commons and Greiner Hall, close RMA!). This will free up alumni arena (if done correctly)

    Midseason "Blue Collar MVP"

    He also talks a TON of trash too. Probably part of the reason Holiday and him were screaming at each other at WMU

    Feb 2019 signing day

    They never mentioned OL - Tyler Doty or LS - Evan Davis in the initial class so maybe they will be February signees...? It might be the case that they are preferred walk-ons....

    6'2 corner.. height and speed at corner is always a plus.
  17. 5 start, depends on the rankings. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2019/drew-timme-9785 Loaded with 4 stars though. https://247sports.com/Season/2019-Basketball/CompositeTeamRankings/
  18. Really? I kinda thought Hodgson was the heir-apparent when Oats goes, given his WNY lineage.
  19. We'll be able to move the SAs doing sprints in the AA/CFA basement halls to the triple gym!

    Midseason "Blue Collar MVP"

    I’ve been so impressed by Caruthers. He is so tough. Also didn’t realize that he’s as athletic as he is.

    It seems that everyone’s strategy against us in the MAC is to extend their own offensive possessions as long as humanly possible. Everyone wants to slow our pace down and not let us get into a groove. Just gotta stay disciplined on D and we come out with a W
  22. Well, -150 football, track & softball players are already about to move out. It’s not another new groundbreaking, ribbon cutting ceremony, but I do think that the ‘football’ field house is a good start.
  23. It isn’t just Oats. The staff is gone after this season. I see the assistants all getting poached by programs offering more money. They need about $2M more in total staff salaries every year and that is something I can’t see them doing.

    Midseason "Blue Collar MVP"

    He and Perkins bring a nastiness off the bench that I love. But yea he is the blue collar mvp so far. He always brings the fire and intensity that spark the team. And his defense is amazing. No fear in him on both ends. I said it before every time he dunks I feel he is either gonna break the rim or hurt himself lol. 6th man of the year so far. Also Harris is starting to play like a potential conference player of the year.

    Jayvon Graves is the key to the Bulls future success

    His growth from year 1 to year 2 has been great. You could see it coming late last February. He’s no doubt going to be one of the leaders on the team as he finishes his career. He’s got great all around game potential. And if you are getting impatient with Segu and Williams, look at Graves. His growth seemingly overnight is what we can hope and expect for the two freshmen. These kids aren’t one and doners, so growth and development is the name of the game.
