Why is it that the only BCS programs we've ever gotten to commit to coming to our gym have been programs that were basically ranked in the top-25? BYU was ranked #16 when they came and both UCONN and PITT were ranked #2 in the country back when they were in alumni arena. Can't we get like a St Johns or a Providence to do a 1-1 or a 2-1? We need those mid-level teams from the bigger conferences that we can actually beat.

I do have to say I love this schedule though. Mediocre mid-majors that we can beat, coupled with some national powers in giant, hostile environments. Great learning experiences for our young guys all around. The best part: no Buff States or Medaille's!

Its because when a top 5 team comes to Alum we lose by less then points.  We more or less scared them all away. The Pitt game was a TO away from going the other way.

Id actually say you were wrong. Depending how you want to analyze the word chance

Technically he had a 50/50 chance of going 1st based on all the info that it was either him or Clowney going first the Texans. No only that a division amongst the front office about which one was wanted.

Also kind of a odd youd celebrate predicting Mack wouldnt go 1st overall when the fact is we should be incredibly proud and excited that he went 5th overall. Its still surreal. The fact that he was considered #1 on draft boards is still incredible.

Well, I knew it was going to happen, and he still dropped to 5th, just like I predicted. He shouldn't be put in the same class as Clowney, because he isn't.

That is because he is better.

Another tidbit:

Khalil's signing bonus: $11,903,272 and his '14 compensation should be $12,323,272. Maybe he should have done the $$$ signs with his hands instead of Manziel.

One of the several reasons why Mack was picked at five and Johnny at 22.

Also i think the top 10 or so picks salaries are set in stone to stop the ultra high contracts.

Johnny Football looks like a kid standing next to Mack.

The only thing i see wrong with this picture is Mr. President would never lose his hat.

Surprised that we have not heard from Flynnkat over this new opening.

That may have been one of the hardest firings of all time.  Do you really want to be a person to publicly fire the President's brother in law?
Absolutely.

Or one of the easiest, depending on how you fall politically

Regardless of your politics it is a heard decision.  It may be even harder if you disagree with the President.  Do you really want to piss him off that much?

Me personally, yes.

Javon is #3 on The Spectrums all time D1 athlete list. http://www.ubspectrum.com/mobile/sports/top-10-of-the-d1-era-no-3-javon-mccrea-1.3166653

They wrote a nice article. What struck me though was Hurley declined to speak to The Spectrum staff for his input on Javon. So did Javon apparently. (I'm sure he's pre occupied with draft prep)  I have to imagine his apparent refusal to speak with them is a result of some of the poor journalism of Mansfield and others regarding the season and other related topics. I can't necessarily blame Hurley, but it would be nice if there was better communication between athletics and The Spectrum.

It would be interesting to know the true story behind this.

You can't set yourself up to be the hit squad on UBAthletics and then expect anything better of the department towards you. The Spectrum does a good job covering the players and games but their editorial on White/Hurley has been almost universally negative..

The Spectrum seems to be following the Buffalo News' lead of attack dog journalism.  For the life of me I don't get the animus from the Spectrum for Hurley. Coaches get let go for less than Reg did.  Witherspoon was not Dean Smith or Bobby Knight.  He had a decent albeit middling record at UB.  Sometimes things get stale and changes have to be made.  We had a good year, the future of UB basketball looks promising and Reg got a great job.  Wins all around.

Its a cultural thing at UB.  It even happens at this board and other supporting site.  Prime example is why are we even mentioning where Reggie ended up? He was fired, what ever your opinion is on it. He is no longer part of the UB family, sorry time to move on to things that actually affect UB.  I doubt the major programs spend a 1/10 of the time we do talking about past players and coaches. They spend time talking about their current program and what is going on with it now.

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.
15  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Hurley to Marquette per on: April 05, 2014, 08:32:57 AM
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
