    2019 Football Schedule

    Only one home game at night in November, Toledo. The Bowling Green game will begin anywhere from 11:00 until 2:00 (most likely) off of past on the day after Thanksgiving. For the first time in a number of years two real bye weekends. In addition to the Kent State and Toledo games, the Penn State game will be available across the country on at least the Big 10 Network, or a regular ESPN channel. The game times will not be announced for the first three weeks and the mid-week games for another few months. Weeks four through the Eastern Michigan game will be announced 12 days before the date of the game to accommodate television.

    CMU/UB women’s game

    Presely Hudson and Reyna Frost are two of the best players UB has ever faced within the MAC. The Reid - Hudson match up last year was so much fun to watch as both just loved playing the game and the challenge of going up against each other. Also making this a great rivalry is the respect between Coach Jack and Coach Guevara.

    Place limitations on your gift as to how the money is to be used. That way you know where your money is going.

    Fan/Booster Compliance

    The simplest way to know if you are a booster is if you have donated $0.01 in your life to Athletics. Once you make a donation to Athletics you are a booster for life. Notice the use of the word "Athletics". It does not matter where you give the money, you are a booster. So if you gave money to baseball, you are a booster and all the rules apply. A change was made nearly three years ago about social media contacts with Potential Student Athletes. The rule became know as the click but don't type rule. That means you can like or retweet, but you cannot quote or reply. Also no person other than employees of UB, and then only those who have passed a recruiting test, are allowed to recruit an athlete to UB. So if ever contacted by anyone just refer them to the coach for further discussions. I have been attending college fairs for over 15 years. When I am asked about athletics, the questions comes in a limited number of ways: What level athletics do you have? Do you have "x" sport? Could I play "x" sport for UB? Other than the first question the answer is basically you have to talk to the coach. I am not allowed to discuss anything more than that with you under NCAA regulations. That always ends the conversation on athletics. Simple answer to this question is why do you want to talk to a 16 or 17 year old kid, that you have never met, about going to college? And then just leave the recruiting to the professionals. This is the link to the compliance page: http://ubbulls.com/compliance/index. If you ever want to have any contact with a Potential Student Athlete before you do contact Compliance.

    Fan/Booster Compliance

    I would think technically yes, but the only way to know for sure would be to check with Compliance.

    Paint the track blue and slap some bleachers in front of the stands, right behind the end zone (like USC does). Problems solved. 😉 It creates problems. The track becomes unusable because the bleachers would create blind spots on the track for officials. That is the problem Nevada has with their track around the field. The built stands over the track so that you run underneath the seats. That may be nice for football but it prevents them from hosting meets.

    uhh...I have. The track makes me disconnected from the game. I do not enjoy watching games there. I'm glad you do. However, many people in the community do feel this way, as you admit, and that's a problem if we want people to actually come to games. Admittedly I am rarely in the stands for football games. However, when I do go up in the stands I have never had a problem with seeing the game and the track is a non-factor in watching the game. You want the front rows to be closer to the field? Why? Everyone who has written about getting the front rows closer to the field thinks you will see better. Unless the front row is elevate you cannot see anything from along the sides of the field. At Iowa if you are in the first few rows you cannot really see the game, even from the 50 yard line. Your view is blocked by players. At Met Life if you have the club seats behind the bench on field level if you want to see the game you have to go inside and watch it on television. Regardless of the stadium or arena, if your seats are low, your view sucks. As for the highlighted quote from Skrabukes above, thanks. If you think there is a problem do not just whine. Become part of the solution and not the problem, DONATE! Every contribution no matter how small will help. My first donation after graduating was $15.00. After graduating law school and getting a job a set aside a few dollars every week and still do that every week now. As I started earning more I set more money aside and the donations went up. If you think you cannot afford to do that look at do every day. For all the people who wanted beer sales at games, give up one beer a week and you will have nearly $300.00 after a year to donate. If you smoke cutting back one pack a week and setting that aside would lead to a donation of nearly $700.00 (this is based upon $13.00 a pack in New York City, which I believe is low) a year, and you would be healthier. https://ubfoundation.buffalo.edu/giving/index.php?&custom=0581
