    Jayvon Graves is the key to the Bulls future success

  2. Two or three years ago UB played Canisius at KBC or whatever it was called for a few years running in some doubleheaders. If I remember correctly, UB season ticket holders had to fork over $20, which may be due to the fact that it was considered a Griff home game (I can’t remember). Twenty bucks isn’t outlandish by any means, but it is roughly double what the price of a season ticket at AA is per game (Don’t know what a ticket costs for non season ticket holder). The GA slots at AA may be good for youths, but I wouldn’t sit there. A friend of mine and his wife and family sat there for the Miami game - they weren’t exactly thrilled. If, in the future, the Bulls decide to hold some games at KBC, the tickets, parking, food and beverages are going to cost more. If they can attract a minimum of 12,000 fans, go for it. Otherwise, I don’t like the idea.

    When the refs dictate the show...when they become the show, that’s when anything can happen. This game is exhibit #1.

    Was that the 3 that McRae sank? The MAC refs keeping things close.
  6. How many season ticket seats are there for UB basketball? If there are, say, 2500 season ticket holders and a seating capacity (including SRO) of 6500, that means roughly 4000 available seats each game. I would estimate that over the past eight years the number of times that the ‘True Blue’ student attendance has approached or slightly exceeded 1000 has been, perhaps, 3 times per year. If by changing the venue to KBC one hopes for a student turnout of 10,000, I would call that dream hallucinatory. Are there any schools anywhere where 10000 of the students attend a basketball game? I admire the goal of luring top tier opponents here, and, even though I consider Key Bank Arena a poor platform, it would be great to host a doubleheader/tournament there with the blue blood programs. I don’t have faith in that happening.

    Bearden and Rick Stansbury.

    Syracuse beats duke

    ODU just beat W Kentucky at home. CUSA is a one bid. Hope it’s ODU or N Texas. Anyone but W Kentucky.

    Yup. Never want to see anyone hurt. And as good as Williamson is, Jones is probably their MVP.

    KJ to the U

    When a player that was recruited, signed, coached, nurtured at UB decides to fly the coop - regardless of whether that player was a star a bench warmer or bailed really early - I hope that player falls flat on his face. I will never root for him. He’s a traitor.

    Sweet sixteen! Hmmm...quite a nice ring to that. Hope we’re sweet 16 in late March. Please no illness no injuries. Keep your heads on straight and play each game like it’s the last time you’ll be putting on that uniform! Go Bulls!!

    Bulls win by 20+. Western Kentucky loses again. Arizona St loses again. Keep it going.

    Our daughter better pony up then. The single ticket prices are ridiculous.

    Schadenfreude

    I’ll take Jordan 8 days a week. Much better defender. As good at dishing. Better at getting to the basket, and better from the outside. Only advantage that Bearden had is he is a much better free throw shooter. Bearden is injury prone and not a guy whom you can count on. Jordan may not have been as highly rated when he came to Buffalo, but I’m glad that he’s a Bull. Bearden...no thanks.

    My wife and I have enjoyed season tickets for the past 8 years in Section 114 Row P...aisle seats. If they tripled the price, it would still be a bargain. Our daughter will be starting a fellowship in Ann Arbor in July. She wanted to know if we would be interested in going to one of the basketball games there. Until she found out the cost - from 5 to 50 times the cost of a UB ticket.

    Ranking Prediction

    West Virginia is currently 0 - 4 in Big 12. So our victory there continues to lose its luster. Syracuse is currently an 11 seed per Lunardi...on the bubble. Southern Illinois - nowhere. San Francisco has been dropped from the in crowd by Lunardi. A Doms win against the Zags would bolster the Bulls’ body of work, but I suspect that UB will have to win the MAC conference tournament to qualify for the ‘Dance’. The MAC will get 1 bid.

    Miami (OH) @ #19 UB (1/12 - 12pm ET)

    When Perkins hit the deck, visions of Chris Ford tripping up Bob Lanier flashed through my mind. But he seemed to be walking OKwhen he came back to the bench. Can not afford to lose Perk.
  22. Scrap that. I look in the paper today and it’s got the Miami game at 2:00.
  23. The Key Bank Center is antiseptic, sterile, and if only 7 or 8 thousand show up, it will look and feel deserted as well. I can’t see a big enough draw for any MAC opponent this year. I don’t know squat about the financial ramifications, but would hope that AA would be SRO for the rest of this year. You’ve got a top 20 team, for crying out loud! If this program doesn’t regress, I can even see the UB townies starting to jump on the bandwagon. The BN is starting to finally give a little bit better press. The key is retaining Oats and crew, and continuing to nurture interest amongst the students. This is getting HUGE AH!!

    Miami (OH) @ #19 UB (1/12 - 12pm ET)

    In calendar year 2018 the Bulls were 31-5. Miami gave the Bulls one of those losses (84-81). Time for payback.

    Ranking Prediction

    How is this for a ranking prediction? Kenpom.com ranked Illinois 83rd on Nov 8th. After they lost at home against Michigan tonight they are ranked 109th! Illinois is 4-12. They are 0-5 in Big 10. You can’t make this stuff up. If they win a couple more, they’ll be on the bubble. Pathetic...
