  1. Awesome. Beating out those other offers is great. New coach is off to a good start
  2. Love when we are dogs. We were favored at liberty and look how that worked out haha. Maybe it’s the extra bit of motivation we need to roll Miami.
  3. So tough to say. I’d love a 20+ win season. A lot of big shoes to fill but to still be a strength in the MAC would be a win. I just really want to beat bona
  4. Have no idea what to think of this team. This was much more of temple giving us gifts than us being good but still what a freakin win. A ginormous step to bowl eligibility. I too was upset with all the late injuries. Hopefully none are too serious. We have to be able to close out games but at the same time we had a new RB come in because it was a big lead. If we are up by one or two tds and trying to milk clock at the end of a game you know we are going with patt or marks. again, I know temple gave us a lot of gifts but still, in other years there’s still no chance we win that game and that gives me some more hope for the rest of the season. If the team can figure out how to play as well as they have at times for full games it could be great. If we come out and play like we did against liberty it’s gunna be rough. Either way, this was a win that really gave me some more hope for the season and I’m pumped for MAC play.
  5. To be honest I’m surprised the overall series is so lopsided
  6. Yea that long FG could prove to be huge. Temple has given us a handful of gifts. If the defense can get off the field and get some stops in the second half we can run away with this one LETS GOOO
  7. It’s the same thing with football this season. If we can be competitive again, it’s going to pay huge dividends for fan support. Especially with basketball being fairly consistent for a number of years now
  8. What a classy move. Kudos to them
  9. Could be...but I hope that was their actual effort. They always seem like a second half team but we really really took it to them in the 1st. A couple of early mistakes led to some demoralizing blows. Either way, I am way more excited for the rest of the season. This team was totally different than the effort at RMU. Hopefully we don't just play to the quality of the opponent. Let's take it to LU and get back to the winning ways and chipping our way to bowl eligibility.
  10. Penn state looks great this year. I’m concerned after our first game. Let’s try and make it competitive.
  11. Yea I also wonder if playing an FCS opponent made us a little flat especially on defense. I’m hoping with a formidable opponent the D really steps up the focus on every play. The couple of breakdowns could be slight lapses when in the back of your head you know it’s going to be an easy win. We shall see
  12. Not much talk on here post-game and I think that says it all. We clearly are going to be extremely run heavy and I think that just makes it less exciting of a game. If we can win with it then I couldn’t care less but we will see how the season progresses. Pros: 1) It’s a UB victory and we start off 1-0. There was never truly a scare in the game either. I was generally underwhelmed but it never really felt like UB would lose this one. It’s one game closer to bowl eligibility no matter what 2) running game looks strong and we have a great stable of backs. 3) no injuries from what I could tell. Most important here 4) kicking game was on point. Wish they would’ve let him try that long one (I think it would’ve been about 47) after he made the 40 yarder but whatever... Cons: 1) buffalo didn’t seem THAT much better than this team who is an fcs squad that’s gone something like 2-9 in the last 3 seasons. Felt like an inferior FBS team that we were able to handle and that’s scary 2) the run game was working out great to start. If we can continuously get to 3rd and manageable idc we can run it all day and then hope every once in a while we catch them off guard with a throw. However, teams will catch on. Just like RMU did. Everyone and their mothers knows we are going to be running a ridiculous amount. Once RMU started to get used to it, things kinda grinded to a halt. I got the feeling we are going to be playing a lot of defense if we play like this against any FBS team 3) the defense was pretty porous at times. They had good moments and came out really stuffing the run but couldn’t really stop any mid-deep throws. I honestly have no idea why RMU didn’t throw it more. They were having all kinds of success despite a drop or two and one early overthrow. It actually felt similar to last year. The defense seems to be able to push it to 3rd down all the time but always struggles to get off the field. 4) why did we not let Myers try and sling it around a little bit? He clearly had some major R-fr jitters and his short passes were all over the place. Why not let him keep trying them and get into a groove. This offense will not last against anybody FBS with how little we threw. I will say his long ball looked pretty decent just barely missing on one, throwing a nice ball on the PI and also to the wide open Lefebve but my god there needs to be way more balance. You are now bringing a redshirt freshman starter into prob a top 5 hardest places to play on prime time Next weekend and there is absolutely no way he feels comfortable throwing the ball after today. We all know PSU is watching our game tape from tonight and going to load up the box every down just daring us to throw the ball. Why wouldn’t you. I know we will he run heavy but even an FCS school figured out how to slow it down fairly quickly and then we were completely one dimensional. This is going to be a huge issue unless by some miracle we are just saving all of our throwing plays for PSU. Overall I know we won but by in large this was extremely underwhelming and makes me terrified for the rest of the season. I will be thrilled if I’m proved wrong but I really worry this is going to be a huge regression year...
  13. Last day without UB football this season!!!
