  1. I believe he meant that statement as a hypothetical. It hasn't actually been said, but would be reassuring to all of those paying attention if someone could make that statement.
  2. Well, he's deleted his twitter account (@UBCoachBryan) and re-established it @BamacoachBryan
  3. The importance of a hyphen is emphasized by the extreme dread that washed over me when I opened my email. A big difference between "resigned" and "re-signed"
  4. I used to park in the Stadium lot - but that has become a mess since the crowds have gotten larger. The Alumni B lot next to South Lake is good if you can get there early enough before it fills up. Lately, I've just been going to the Jacobs lots and trying to park in the last row or two. A little bit of a walk, but I've never had to circle for spots and am out onto Flint with no real wait at the end of the game.The Baird and Slee lots are where everyone tries to get into, and are always a mess. Tomorrow may be a bit more interesting with the 6pm start, as the students will still be in the lots from classes.
  5. The women's team currently sits as the 3rd seed, with one game to go. Should the 3 seed hold, they'll tip off around 7-730 on Wednesday against the winner of the 6/11 game. The semi on that side of the bracket then is at 1:30 on Friday, and the Championship is on 11 on Saturday. Since CMU won last night they can't overtake them for first, but can end up anywhere between the 2 and the 4 seed.
  6. The #1 seed plays the early set of games to afford them the most rest leading into the championship game. UB will play at Noon on Thursday against the winner of the 8/9 seed game (as of today - NIU/Miami). The winner advances to play the winner of the 5/12 vs. 4 seed (as of today - CMU/WMU vs. Kent) at 630 on Friday. Championship is at 730 Saturday.
  7. The arena looks nice adorned with 6600+.
  8. To be fair - a 66-62 game with 2:58 is naturally going to spur more crowd interaction than when the team is up 40+ points. Close games will bring out the crowd noise and bring people to their feet. We've had a string of blowouts at home this year, so naturally people are going to sit back and watch the show if Buffalo is up late rather than when they are fighting it out until the end. In conference this year, our average margin of victory at home is 25 pts. I can't decry the lack of coordinated crowd enthusiasm too much based on that.
  9. Perhaps my favorite Nate Oats photo ever.
  10. Not pleasing everyone is one thing - playing some sort of slow jam R&B at every break is another. He's got an amazing talent for sucking all of the air out of the building after a UB run as the crowd gets on their feet and goes nuts by playing some slow low energy song. Crowd sits down. Arena gets quiet. He watches the video board and repeats the same three catch phrases. Rinse and repeat. It's the most effective application of a momentum breaking timeout I've seen in college basketball. Hoping this gets better when the students and pep band return, but that DJ table needs to be disassembled yesterday and control of break music turned back over to UB production.
  11. Side note- the "DJ" is terrible. Trying to pump up the audience with slow tempo R&B?.... Yeah, not working. Playing Happy may be cliche at this point, but it's a cliche for a reason.
  12. They're college students - not a bunch of old folks like us. 9 PM is when you start to think about going out. Noon is an early morning start.
  13. As we head towards Miami - I always like to take 2 minutes and remember perhaps the second greatest post game press conference in MAC history (with the first being the BGSU Dan Dackich wihtout socks gem). https://youtu.be/UnilJdwyPRs
