Initially, I like it.  However I don't know how much I like it when I think about it more.  UB Stadium would need to get close to, if not completely knocked down and rebuilt.  It would help UB attendance, but I don't think it would be anywhere near enough to have us jump up conferences anytime soon.  We need a consistently winning program for that, unless we're looking to join C-USA or something.  I'm not a fan of drunk fans trashing the campus on Sundays.  There is a ton of land by the golf course and town park that would work, but if the stadium is being built there, it's even further away from students.  Though I guess if the Bills play half a mile from campus, students might pay attention to football more and realize that UB has a program also.

I'd have to see more plans in order to form a better opinion on it, though I don't think this is very likely.

Also, there's no reason why the Bills stadium needs to get moved to Niagara county or Batavia. Bad ideas.

Having lived in South Lake and used the bike running path numerous times. That area is plenty close to campus.  However parking is a major issue. There isn't as much room back there as people think. The golf course would need to go bye bye, as well as the UB stadium for parking.

But then again having the newest NFL stadium on campus is a great recruiting tool, would also bring a ton of revenue to the school and area. As for drunked NFL fans, a few extra cops on the roads in campus and maybe some innovative landscaping would help.

Also if its a domed stadium, we could host well NCAAs, major bowl games, concerts, you name it. I would dare say super bowl but i think the city won't support it.

Sure take our the golf course right their and build everything on the land.

I'm just waiting for the new ESPN college Basketball show call "the "SPOON" and Dakich" it will be run like a buddy cop where they hate each other on the outside, but deep down they really do love and respect each other.

Haven't any of you consulted with dicesare's "sources"?  Hurley actually has signed a contract to take over for Coach K in two years. His sources say a done deal. 

That one is actually believable

Wait a second just Heard Hurley  to  Alabama to take over for Mick Saban.

Well, to be fair, thats where half of the conference is located.  I'm actually shocked the MAAC chooses Buffalo, and not somewhere east of the Hudson river.  Niagara and Canisius are the outliers in that conference.

Don't think there are many arenas.

    we are also paying Reggie almost 300k this year so i could undetstand why we don't have the money.

    contracts are not what they always appear to be, they are not paying Reggie near that figure.

    He had a year left and was making around 280k a year base. You add in everything else that isn't expressly defined in the contract, such as health. He cost us about 300k this year.

    According to the contract, UB only owes Reggie his base annual salary for every remaining year on the contract. So for the year UB would owe Reggie $188, 694.00. (Contract shows 188,194, but I think he received a $500.00 raise). I don't believe UB is paying for health insurance or anything else.

    oops got the base wrong. I think health would be covered because he is a state employee and all that goes into that, etc. Still 180  - 220 thousand is alot of money [/list]

    What has Starks earned so far in his time with Green Bay?  Anyone know?

    Guessing close to league min. which starts at 375k and goes up about  75k a year so  around 3.5 million.

    Almost no chance.  He needs to make nice with the White family if he wants the job at Duke.  Not saying that he won't eventually leave for another program that isn't Duke, but not after one year.

    How in the heck are folks thinking he would be next head coach at Duke? He wasn't hired as an asst at Duke when they have had openings. They are going to hire Hurley when they have former longtime assistants doing well as head coaches, and long time assistants who are also Duke grads? Shouldn't there be some basis to suggest that? Hurley isn't going from Buffalo to Duke. He would have a minimum of one job between him and Duke and he would have to absolutely kill it to even be considered.


    Yes i think he is being groomed for Duke, or at least one of the few in the pool for future Duke coach.  I also don't think he wants to upset the White family. The chance of being the Head Coach at Duke no matter how great or how small would be enough to keep Hurley here at least one more year.  

    Also VTech is a real crappy job right now. Going there would just be a money grab. You need to be really really bad to only win 9 games.

    Also VTech can get a bigger name then Hurley, hell they can hire Seth back, hire a hot new assistant from a top 10 team.

    Would have liked to see Starks stay in Green Bay. I felt like the combo of him and Lacy was perfect last year. It allowed Starks for the most part to stay healthy because of limited reps and he also tore it up on the few carries he had.

    Either way running backs gets churned out in the NFL and dont last long.

    I honestly think Starks has had a very good NFL career. For a guy that was always hurt, the Packers gave him an incredibly long leash. When hes played hes been great and no matter what he will always have that playoff run with the Packers in which he had a major part in.

    I agree.  Allowed James to be the change of pace back.  Did not have to be the bruiser. 

    He has a ring, a player ring. All that matters.
