    Are UB and St. Bonaventure rivals?!?

    I would consider Bonna a "local" rival. We're all part of the Buffalo Big 4. However who wins and loses between UB, Niagara, Conesius, and Bonna doesn't really matter. It's fun to chitchat about with alumni from other schools and one up each other, but in the end because they're in different conferences, it doesn't matter that much. I definitely pull for the other big 4 schools to do well, when they aren't playing UB. There's not so much hate to the other big 4 schools than that they're all UB's little brothers. I would think UB's main rivals are Ohio, Kent State & Akron. They seem to be the other MAC schools that are also regularly good in basketball over the last 20 years. The games between UB and especially Ohio & Kent State tend to be pretty intense and tend to get a good crowd. In football, UB has been so inconsistent that there really isn't one, unless you count possibly Temple or UConn.

    Their coach has been super hush hush on the suspension, refuses to give a reason why and how long.
  4. Their (limited) board expects him to be out of the Murray St. game tomorrow but "hopes" he'll be back on Saturday. There are, seemingly, still no details on the reason or duration of suspension.

    Forgot about the the following weekend because I will not be able to shop it because I will be at the bowl game and flying around the country.
  6. Is he still out? I bet he plays Saturday.
  7. Today
  8. I completely agree - except on the pack up and go home. This would be embarrassing if we aren’t at or around capacity. Weekday games are hard to make, okay here’s one on the weekend. We played a D2 school last time, here’s a decent mid major. It’s at 2 in the afternoon, not 7 at night. Sabres aren’t home, or even playing at the same time I give a small pass if we don’t completely sell out, since students would give us a good boost, but I suspect most will be home. But we should be able to find 6k people in the area to show up.
  9. Soccer...yes, I am sure the eyes of WNY will be glued to their screens for the West Ham - Fulham matchup (the story lines are endless...can Fulham get out of the drop zone?) I know...the affiliates are contractually obligated to show it, but it is not like they are dumping any of the Big 6 teams. They could do it... By the way...a shopping tip for you: Christmas is Dec 25th, so you actually have two more weekends to shop.
  10. It's a small thing but "every little bit counts" - go on Facebook and RSVP as "going" or "interested" to the event, it will increase the reach/visibility https://www.facebook.com/events/2305756559652571/

    If You Build it They Will Come

    UB finals don't end until Monday, 12/17, so the dorms are still open and hopefully a good contingent of students will still be around. Need them making as much noise as possible throughout. TrueBlue should be hyping this one!

    Rome wasn't built in one day. Relax.

    If You Build it They Will Come

    This game is going to be a sell out. No way around it. The game is too big and the Bulls are too good not to sell out the small Alumni Arena. If this isn't sold out then people need to be fired. This is an easy game to get people to attend.

    We have to stop making excuses. Now is the time for sell outs. If Alumni can't get sold out with UB being ranked and playing a tough opponent then what are we even doing here? Might as well pack up and go home. Seriously, Alumni isn't big. This game is a sell out.

    Ticket/Seating for SU Game

    Went ahead and bought through StubHub - Sec 113, Row G for $22 ea plus fees. Looks like there a a bunch more seats in that area for similar pricing.

    Ticket/Seating for SU Game

    Wish I could make it back for this one. Get us much blue in that dome as possible!!
  18. Looking at ticket info now. The UB ticket office says they have tickets for sale for $30 ea in 313 (upper corner of the dome). I'm seeing a ton of tickets on StubHub in better spots. For those who are going - where are your seats?

    Ranking Prediction

    This is something that I'm starting to come to terms with. We've all been along for the ride for years - the average fan hasn't. As much as we want instant sellouts, we're still building in the minds of many new fans. I think we're going to enjoy one of those best years we've had in terms of public support/attendance and buzz. The AD(epartment) is doing it's job, winning, raising profile and maintaining academic standards. We're going to become hard to ignore soon.

    How do you knock Atlanta as a sports town? Their soccer team outdraws the Bills.

    First channel 2 would have to dump out of Premier League coverage. Not sure the network would be happy with them doing that. Channel 4 will have CBS college basketball coverage on. Channel 7 will have bowl games on. Local channels have very little options to be able to show a local sporting event over their obligations to show network programming. YOu need a perfect storm to be able to have a game on local TV like the football game this year. It does not appear that lightning is going to strike twice this year. The other big thing that could work attendance (which putting ht e game on local TV will hurt walk up ticket buying) is the date. It is the last Saturday before Christmas and it is huge shopping day.

    So what exactly is going on with Fletcher at SIU?
  23. I understand how important it is to get people out to the game, but increasing regional interest by showing the game on TV...that's good. Unless our region is really interested in Utah State vs North Texas in the New Mexico Bowl... Yes...get the game on TV. If it means 500 less people show up for the game in person, but 50,000 watch it (I am making up numbers here), that's good!

    I'll be there for at least part of the game. Red is hosting my sisters and nieces for a Christmas cookie baking party early in the afternoon. Gotta get out of the house!

    It looks like it appears for a short period of time and then goes away.

    This game will sellout. It would be an embarrassment for the program if it didn’t.
