If you have to yell F this and F that then you’re pretty dumb bunch of fans. I didn’t go this game. But the AP article being read throughout the country prominently says  profanity-chanting fans. Beyond the obvious of it being fit only for drunkards and being vulgar Bona gets a black eye in the national press. I don’t see how you want your school known to be that way especially at a catholic university. I’m not a fan of the “you suck” chant when an opposing player fouls out either. I don’t think I’m high and mighty. Just think it’s disgusting and terribly inappropriate.  

Add the F-bomb to the list of some of the most overused words.  Iconic, homophobic (almost never used for it's true meaning), literally...

“discovered the quality of our academic programs” made me laugh.  I always thought the school was bankrupt and just a cover for elaborate postal scams.  Isn’t their med program based on leaches and prayer?

They aren't terrible in terms of rankings.  Between Geneseo and New Paltz, above Niagara and one rank higher than Canisius.

Still lower ranked than my safety schools, but has some form of admission standards unlike some MAC schools.  Akron will let you in without a welding certificate.

With all of the negative exposure from Sat’s game from the student section I was glad and impressed with the memo from the UB president. I would hope most of the students and fans understand their is no place with that type of vulgarity and language at sporting events. Also I am sure there are still many who like  the one student who used the “It’s a free country and you should be able to say anything you want”, We were raised by our parents with certain rules and were always told that all of life decisions came with responsibility and accountability and to always think before you act and to treat others like you want to be treated. Sadly that has been lost in many instances in today’s world and at sporting events. Here’s hoping at our UB games we have passionate students and fans who treat others with respect and dignity. Go Bulls!!!

Speaking of welding certificate.

So, I was probably a HS SR when the scandal broke. I vaguely remember some GR talk about Bona but couldn't tell you anything more than they had a program altering quasi academic issue.

So this week I read the wiki for the first time (cause they in my mind are kinda irrelevant and no need before this to research them) and it was one ineligible player? That was the program altering scandal? The U does that every 3 years.

It's like they built a house of sticks and when the wolf blew it down, they just retconned history to say that a hurricane hit to distract from the fact that the program was already poorly positioned for the future.

The scandal may have involved the enrollment of one player, but it had major repercussions throughout the university.
