  1. Welcome @TheBully. Enjoy your time at UB. Get involved and have fun. Completely agree. I was looking forward to him playing with Segu, Graves and Jordan. Can't blame him for leaving due to a coaching change. From a recruiting stand point, I think UB is in a great position. Buffalo started getting some brand recognition and some are saying they will win the MAC again. I can see some solid JUCO's coming in next year. Back to William and Mary, how do you stop Knight? I feel as if he is scoring 20 minimum against us.
  2. The commentators on the Harvard-Buffalo game were saying that Buffalo was going to win the MAC without a doubt. I wasn't sure if they were just trying to hype up the game due to it being in Toronto. It certainly made me feel good. I think Ohio might be one of the best teams in the MAC East. Young team but they are going down the right path. They will be much better in March.
  3. Anyone know where a replay of the game is? I was following only a little on the ESPN app but would love to watch the game. I haven't watched a game since the home Dartmouth game. I missed Naz due to work travel and Harvard due to moving EDIT: Found it. I didn't know it was on ESPN+
  4. I know our players are talented. They will figure it out and build more chemistry. The main issue I had with this game was on one group only: The coaching staff: I know our team has the potential to win the MAC again this year but they need a fantastic coaching staff to get there. We are one game in, but I really did not like what I saw. We had barely any adjustments from 1st half to 2nd half. They ran the same pick and roll 10 times on us. We had flashes of our old fast paced team. On some fast breaks, Whitesell threw his hand up to call a play. That wouldn't have happened last year. Push the tempo to throw off their defense. And what kind of offensive plays were that?! There was nothing. Williams came right back out of the locker room after the game and started putting up shots. The work ethic is there. In January, I will see how I feel about Whitesell. He claims that he wants fast pace but everything felt so slow (maybe it is because I have grown used to the Hurley/Oats systems).
  5. I love your positivity and enthusiasm. Welcome by the way! I can still see some growing pains during this Dartmouth game. I do not believe we will win by that much but I see a victory to continue the nation's longest home win streak.
  6. There are probably multiple different versions of the story. I believe everyone is pretty comfortable now. I will always support Nate and I put ESPN notifications on my phone for the Alabama basketball program. He took UB to a level none of us could ever dream of. How could you not support him! But I agree with @skrabukes comments above. The type of play Nate uses requires players to put egos aside. I am not sure how long that might take for some players but with people expecting quick results, that can be a little bit of an issue. He took his three values with him to Bama, one being selfless love. If you watched the game against Penn, it was pretty selfish basketball but all of that can change by February/March.
  7. This sounds like an exaggeration. I was all for everything you were saying but now you changed your rhetoric from supporting someone because they brought success to Buffalo to defending someone at the expense of our own leadership.
  8. Welcome! And thank you for the analysis. ASU shows up when they play good teams (which I believe we are) should be a good match-up.
  9. This was the main question I was focusing on watching the game last night. Dort is an amazing player. It was fun watching him and scary to see him take that fall. His hip is definitely bruised for the game. I am not sure if I want Dontay on him. Dort gets the foul line, Dontay will be foul out within the first ten minutes. They will see that on scouting reports. Once Dontay is ISO'd on Dort, Dort will drive the lane. I would love to see CJ on Dort. Remy is banged up too. You can tell through his moves he was restricted and in pain. They play very similar to us. I couldn't help but think about our team (huge lead in 1st half) when SJU was coming back in the second half. It should be an interesting match up We should win this game. But it also depends on which ASU shows up at the door. The one who took Kansas or the one that struggled against SJU.
  10. As I drunkedly walked in the Q for the final game, a Bowling Green fan started some banter with our group (which some on this board were part of too). Which was nothing of harm or anything, but he said something and his response was hilarious. He said, "Buffalo should lose it is better for the MAC to have two teams go into the league." My response, "I don't care about the MAC, I want a better seed." The guy was dumbfounded. He turned to his friend, "You hear that, he doesn't care about the MAC." Why do people have such an allegiance to the MAC? I guess I see the MAC as a stepping stone for what we can accomplish long term. Are we in it now? Yes. Do I want it competitive? Yes. Do I want to stay in it forever? No.
  11. Dutch, I feel like you keep going back to the same point about competitive teams in Alumni. I think what you are suggesting would hurt us. There are two fans, Die hards and Casual. Die Hards (I would say just about everyone here) will just about go to any game that UB is playing at home. We know who we are playing and their standings (RPI, KenPom, etc). It can help us in the rankings playing us at home and we know that. The games are close because of the more competitive team. The casual fan (who we are trying to attract) does not care about any of those rankings. The team we are playing in the Arena could be a top 100 team but they have no idea. So now, we blow them out of the water, we seem like a REALLY good team. We take a team like Hofstra to the wire. That could be seen as UB not being good ("How can they compete with UNC if they are taking a random Hofstra team to the final minute"). So back to my original point, make the 100's and 200's sell outs for season tickets for the next 2 years and multiple sell outs a year. Then get better teams once we have a more established fan base.
  12. I think the Duke and Florida State game was taking place at the same time. Not trying to make excuses. We keep winning, we will become more visible.
  13. At the Wegmans on Sheridan, their main apparel wall is all UB stuff. Awesome visibility.
  14. Am I one of the only ones that don't want Power 5 schools coming to Alumni Arena YET! I do not have confidence enough or see enough community buy in for a Power 5 to turn Alumni Arena into a home arena for them. A couple years of consistently making the NCAA tournament, loading up on my season tickets until it is seen as a hot ticket in WNY. All 100 and 200 sellouts. After 2 or 3 yeas of that. Let's bring Power 5's in. I also disagree with main post. I don't think Hofstra, Radford or any of those teams will bring in more fans. If that is the case, did Duke fans not show up for the Stetson game in December?
