    Iowa has a horseshoe up their ass. 2nd week in a row they hit a ridiculous prayer at the buzzer to win.

    No way we lose to them. We've got 9 wins in a row coming.

    Elsewhere in the MAC

    Sounds like a heck of a guy. It doesn't matter what else happens in the MAC. We control our own destiny. We'll finish 16-2 and no one else will have more than 14 wins. Take care of ourselves and that's all that matters at this point.

    Future of Alumni Arena

    Then please round up $$ to change it. I'm not sure how people constantly being negative about it helps UB sell tickets in the future. I'm at every game, and like I said, I see the games just fine. Sorry that it's not to everyone's (including your) liking. Instead of knocking everything UB does wrong constantly, (players, facilities, coaches) push for something to help promote it or make it better. This is supposed to be a UB Fan forum. Yes, everything isn't perfect and things can always be improved, and no I don't see the world with rose colored glasses, but come on. If the small number of people who actually utilize this site, and are "UB Fans" aren't the positive ones, how can we expect John Q Public to get behind UB?

    Future of Alumni Arena

    I love how so many "Buffalo people" crush our football stadium. I see the games just fine from my seats, in fact, I've never once had a problem seeing the game well. For all those who don't like it, please make a donation to the UB football excellence fund today, and make it a big one to fix this "terrible place". I do however agree with the rest of your statement.

    Frank Spencer is absolutely the worst ref out there. Always have felt that way with him. He should in no way be officiating games, especially Q1 games with NCAA tournament possibilities on the line for both teams. The moment I saw him, I knew it was going to be bad...it always is when he's around. Great wins this week. 5 out of 7 on the road and now 10-2 in league. The ass-kicking this team takes from many on here day in and day out was put to shame with this win tonight. I don't want to hear how "horrendous the first half was" or anything like it. It's a 40 minute game, and the better team ended up winning, on the road, in each game this week. Now they can finish up with 4 out of 6 at home and hopefully get some momentum heading into neutral court games at the Q, where they are going to win 3 days straight. This team has to endure constant "highest attendance of the season" from their opponents in every game in league this year. They get their opponents (and fans) best when they step in to the gym. There's a reason why home court is worth like 8 points in the projections. We'll get those 8 points on our side for 4/6 now, that's a 16 point swing for the non-mathematicians out there. In Cleveland, it's no advantage, so our numbers should be heavy on the positive side, with regard to projections. I'm proud of this team. Harris has struggled with his shooting. I hope it picks up over the next month, but regardless, his rebounding has greatly improved to pick up for his low shooting %. Graves had some man sized rebounds early in this game, and is very consistent with his efforts. Dontay has been a beast, on both ends. Davonte can't seem to hit the FTs, but made a big 3 from the corner tonight. CJ wasn't his normal self, but hit a couple 3s in big spots tonight, playing with 3 and 4 fouls (soft ones, I might add). Montell was playing way above the rim. Perk, huge, huge, huge tonight. Jeenathan had 2 coast to coast plays that showed why he was rated highly. Rondo provides a few spot minutes to keep the speed up and let the others stay fresh for the big 2nd halves that we need (he and Jeenathan are still growing into the D-1 play). I look forward to the next many weeks watching and relishing this top-25 ranked team, something that we may have never thought would come around. What, 15 straight weeks next week? That's damn nasty, especially for a "just a MAC team". Big game tomorrow, go support the girls! Go Bulls!

    No knocking the team? Come on, it was a bad win, ugly, something? 16-2 finishing record is in our sights. Battled awful reffing and a full house against a top 35 team. Stayed composed after starting poorly and eam them out of gas in the end. Great job boys!

    Toledo must be the best defensive team in league. Still no fouls. Clean as can be

    Blondie is the worst ref ever, nearly cried a few years ago at alumni. Smith doesn't blow the whistle and we were stuck with him on the offensive end for several possessions. I can live with him. The other 2 guys call too much. We've been sloppy and missed too many in the paint. We'll come back tonight

    MAC Tourney Tickets

    I've always ordered from UB. In the past, they've sent out an email ordering form (one had one online) near the final game of the season. You can order the number of tickets that you want for each game that you plan on attending. You only get charged for games in which UB plays. This way you can order men's & women's tickets if you are heading to Cleveland. Pickup is done in the lobby around 90 minutes before game time. UB gets allocated a certain block of sections based on where their seeding is (generally top seeded teams get seating behind the team's bench, while lower seeded teams are across from their team's bench, until the final game). I think that in the past tickets were $32 or $34 for each men's session (2 games until the finals) and $10 for the women's. No additional fees were given in the past.

    Ok, so if we were to lose to Toledo who has a 53 NET rating, we're dead. I don't understand. I mean, based on what I read here, I'm really glad we aren't like we were 10 years ago, or else we would never read a single positive thing from anyone. We're 21-3, the best we've ever been, and there are more downtrodden comments than positive ones. I'm done.

    Stupid Stroh Center

    I only care about the last part. We need to come back and win this game. Nothing else matters beyond that.

    Do you think that Michigan would've happily taken an ugly win versus a less than stellar Penn State team yesterday? Come on, we've won 8 out of MAC games (and many non-conference games) by 9 or more points. We're 21-3. What are you looking for? I don't understand how anyone can be unhappy with 21-3. No game has been perfect for us or any other team in basketball. Of course I'd love to see 24-0 winning by 50 every game, but be freaking realistic already, nobody does anything like that.

    Didn't we win by 14 vs Cmu? How is that a late game eacape? These guys are crazy. I guess we need to win by 50 in the 1st half and hold it for the final to make some people happy.

    If we eek out 10 more wins, we'll be a bad MAC champ and 16 more wins, we'll be a bad national champion. I'll take it.

    I didn't know that there was such a thing as a "bad 21-3" when you've played against as many solid to strong opponents as we've had, most of which were on the road. In year's past, we were clamoring for 20 wins seasons once all of the games are played. Now we've got 10 or so games left and we're talking about "bad 21-3". That's silly.

    A win on the road in conference play is big no matter what. Of course we'd love to clean up a lot of the turnovers, shoot better, etc., but in the end, UB won. I'll happily take it every time. Let's hope for another one on Friday night, so that we can get back home for 3 in a row!

    Bulls Player Madness Elite Eight

    Not sure that it's hate, but anyone matched up with CJ was going to lose at this point. He's our top player now, and has been great for 4 years, with the potential of being an NBA draft pick this summer. Rasaun was great, but hard to beat CJ when comparing Mid-Con vs. MAC, the mid/late 90s teams vs today.
