    Jeseph is 11 hours away and did two away games this year! haha.

    Toledo's strength of schedule may be starting to show up a bit but man, this is a weird feeling for me as a sports fan. I really think the sky is the limit with this team. I've never supported a team in any sport that has done so much in such little time. These are special times. I keep waiting for that big disappointment and aside from a freakish night for Howard, we keep delivering. Keep it up Bulls, glad that Harris has found himself too.

    If he lands at Auburn, I cry foul, big time. Ex-UBAD AG was at the game yesterday, greeting UB players before the game. That would be absolutely a bad look if it happened.

    A couple of things from a Marquette fan: 1. When Markus Howard gets rolling, just get out of the way. You cannot stop him. Buffalo is not the first team he did this to. Tonight he could have hit shots lying on his back in the parking lot. (See picture below of his four-point play.) 2. Scheduling was not in your favor. You played three quality teams in a week with the last two on the road. Marquette had a ten-day break for finals, followed by a tune-up against a bunny. This might be a different game under different circumstances. At least don't fret the margin. 3. Your team is damn good. Really, they might be the best we have played so far. And we probably are the best you have played so far. A couple shots not going in for Marquette in the first half and this might well be a different game. At least not a blow-out. It is tough to win on the road anywhere. But most Marquette fans were impressed. Your guys are quick, can shoot, and know what to do with the ball. They are not five guys playing one-on-one. I do not know what the competition looks like in the MAC this year, but usually there are some good, underrated teams in your league, and it is really hard to run the table in any conference. But i sure like your chances. Since we played tonight, we are unlikely to meet in the post-season. I for one do not feel bad about that. Good luck the rest of the way out, and enjoy this team. It is worth enjoying.

    I am trying to see how this will be for a match-up. I am having a hard time finding a spot where the Bulls might not be favored. Taking a look, Sibande (Guard) and Brown (Forward) are their two biggest scorers. I don't see them doing well against Jordan (hope he is healthy) and McRea/Perkins. They won't keep up with our transition offense. This might be a massacre. P.S. My thread was turned into the official Miami (Oh) thread. Momma, I made it.

    Yea, I'm allowed to ask questions during the postgame pressers. I typically allow the more established media members to ask what's on their minds first since they have important deadlines they're trying to meet. If they don't get to something I'm hoping to figure out, I normally bring it up later on. I'm always open to suggestions. That's part of the reason why I'm active on this message board is to see if there's anything that peaks UB fans interest.

    These are good conversations and there are always going to be varied opinions but we have to end with we just have to agree to disagree. I think it is time to say goodbye to anyone that has to start using the “f” word to try and make his point. Will continue to support our team at the mid major level with passion. Go Bulls!!!!

    Good for Tyree. For a buffalo fan this is much better than transferring. Looks so much better and Tyree can forever be a Bull. Now maybe Giants draft him in the 3rd round and he can be ready in 2 years.

    I can feel comfortable in wishing him well if he's heading the the NFL draft. I hope that it works out well for him. I'm surprised by the choice for sure, but he's a UB Bull only, so I am 100% wishing him nothing but the best.

    Ahhh yes, CBSSN - the network that refuses to stream so nobody under the age of 50 can watch. I can't wait to go to an empty New England bar at 9pm to ask if they'll turn on a MAC basketball game.

    Big 4 Hoops Blogger --> keep writing. The more press we receive, the better. I read the article on BN. I don't know if I would have characterized it as offended. Perhaps bothered by the question. Oats' has a point in that it was a big game for the Griffs (i.e. to play a ranked team at home...and a local one at that) . However, Oats isn't as diplomatic as maybe he should be in how he communicates his points (see the comment about Coach Cal). I also can't believe this topic is on its third page...and we don't play again for a few more days.

    Actually it's a lot of fun and should be played up more. I saw Canisius had a sign for this specific rivalry and called it the Battle for Main St. The schools could do even more to hype it up. For example, have the UB team take the subway from the South Campus to the game (similar to how the Mets went to one of their subway series at the Yankees). The city could hold a train just for UB and deck it out in colors, etc...The next year when Canisius come to UB, do the same and then take the bus from the South Campus to Alumni Arena.

    Who on this board and in the UB fan universe would not have been dancing in the streets if I told you before the season that our record at this point would be 11-1, with a Syracuse win, a win at West Virginia, multiple weeks being ranked in the top 25 and tons of positive national exposure to once was at best a middling basketball program? Be happy! Celebrate this team and it’s coaches. Let’s get out and support the program both by attending games and providing financial support. The best is yet to come. Go Bulls!!!!

    Buffalo fans have invaded downtown Mobile. Not an easy trip but you guys are everywhere in Mobile. Thanks for making the trip down. Great fans and best of luck tomorrow!

    I take this as a sign of "respect" from the betting community. That's a smaller line than Syracuse got and it's against a better team. I think people realized we're not some flash in the pan team on a hot streak.

    There it is baby. What a win. Dream season continues! Never thought wed do that in the dome, love the score line too. We didn't even play our best game, which is even better. So happy right now. Probably also keeps up ranked regardless of Friday as a side note. so far this season has given so many historical moments that I seriously dont even care what happens the rest of the way (ok thats not totally true of course)

    I’m a firm believer in athletics and academic success being intertwined. The entire university keeps rising and it’s amazing

    19, 20, 18, 17, 16, 10........matters not. The fact that we're ranked is superb for the coaches, the team, the university, the community and great for recruiting. And the most important matter is what takes place at practice, staying fit both physically and mentally, not succumbing to press clippings and to take care of business each day, every practice and one game at a time. Go Bulls!

    I love this team, too! For 30 years!!! The bandwagon is big enough for all comers. I hope that ticket is cashed.

    Yes it would be tough to go backwards. Let’s face it with the mid major level for a lot of teams they can be very good for a number of years. When they lose a number of their impact players and are not able to replace them with more impact players they can take a step back. Case in point is both Niagara and Canisius lost their impact player or players and have not been able to overcome that sometimes for a variety of reasons. As far as Reggie years at UB it is hard sometimes to separate emotions from reality and facts when making judgements on a coach or a team. We had some successful and exciting years but he could not get us to the next level. He was not a good game day coach who would not make adjustments during a game. We still talk about the Ohio MAC game in Cleveland when Ohio made a big time comeback and Reggie never called a timeout until it was too late. His offense has really not changed over the years and he still does to this day take a hot player out of a game and sometimes does not put him in for many many minutes. Again not a Reggie hater at all but it was just time for a change and here we are today. Again hope for success for all our local teams but especially for our Bulls. Go Bulls!!!!

    A lot of fans were fine making the CBI or CIT year in and year out. Now that we’ve tasted the big leagues it would be tough to go back.

    Don't be so easily dissuaded! Those who can't create often fall back on critique. And there will always be people on fan boards who are suspicious of media coming onto the site. But most of us here crave more UB coverage, and we'll take it whenever we can. In short: keep up the coverage, and you're welcome here any time. (I admire that you aren't masking your ID. I'll be at the Jan. 12 game, and will buy you a beer (or pop) if you'd like.)

    I realized today, what bothers me most about Tyree and now KJ putting on for possible transfers is the message it sends to the rest of the team. You're the all-MAC returning senior QB, and receiver. You're the leaders of this team from now on, the ones setting the example. Well it's one heck of an example, one heck of a vote of confidence in your coaches and teammates. It's not a message that says "we fell short this year but we're committed to finishing the job next year" - quite the opposite. This doesn't look like "building a winning culture". I know fully well it may be in their personal interest to look into this - fine, but don't tell me there's honor in that.

    For anyone who wanted to re-watch the game last night who didn't tape it or doesn't have cable, found it on YouTube.
