If it is specifically against University rules, then how was True Blue able to hold Reggieville campoyts back in the day?

The Policy is two years old..
I imagine its fallout from Occupy Wall Street.... thanks Governor Cuomo.

Look you all know I'm like the last guy to defend Cuomo but if this policy is in response to OWS lets first point fingers at the folks defecating on police cars and creating an Atmoshpere where "rape free tents" had to be erected.
I'll put aside the fact my scrawny 17 year nephew was arrested and held for about a day without his parents even being notified for a day for doing nothing more than delivering food to Zuccotti Park (he wasn't even a part of it at that point). I'll put aside that he and my sister in law and brother in law subsequently got involved are still involved with the movement and I can tell you that whatever propaganda you have read about it is not representative of what really went on there.

Ok so you're saying that there were not sexual assaults and that there was not a special "womens only tent" set up as a response. Or that litter in the park was not a problem?

My point is the restrictions on civil liberties suck whether its demonstrating against inequality or supporting your team.

In the case of Cuomo you can't elect a big governmnet official without, you know, getting big government. They come from both parties but when people do start doing some of the things which were seen at OWS the reaction will be the same.

I Know it was not the beleivers there causing the issue but as always in life it only takes a few knucklheads to ruin it for everyone..

Stubhub is a resale site, so their map only reflects what they have available.  UB's primary  outlet is Ticketmaster, so there sit would be more accurate, and even then UB may be holding back some seats.

Thanks DO,

I see what you're talking about now... Maybe about 1K seats left..

I was going off of stubhub..

My COMPLIMENTS to to Matt and other students behind this effort. It is a fantastic idea and a real shame it's banned by school policy. It is done at many other schools without incident such in K'ville at Duke. It is a start to generate some enthusiastic support of the students which is sorely needed. I vote that UB revisit this policy and do so in the near future and examine how it can be done properly, safely and enthusiastically. It seems just another example of one appendage of the university either intentionally or inadvertently impeding progress elsewhere.

I think if there was more time that they could have made something work..

That article actually proved a point as to why rakings are important. They also mention schools changing how they operate to rise up the rankings, in order to benefit the student population (new dorms, smaller classes, better professors, etc.)
True, but dropping classes from 20 to 19 does almost nothing.

FIFY...

And what is wrong with "drunk Irishmen"?

Just so we're clear, I'm Irish and enjoy the sauce from time to time. I just don't base my support of colleges on school mascots and Sean Astin movies.

Go Fighting Hobbits!

Amazing how much different this game might seem if we just got out of West Point with a win.

Agreed...

Yet they have no problem setting up a home-and-home with Northern Illinois? Seriously, what gives here? Will the final two games of our series ever get played?

I'd not be surprised if they play the "maybe next year game" with NIU..

Not sure what all the enticement about Pegula buying the Bills is all about, other than the team staying.

Let's not discount just how huge that is Brook... The Bills could easily be leaving.

Quote
If he does for the Bills what he has done for the Sabres   They may never see the playoffs again.  In the three full seasons of Pegula's ownership of the Sabres they have had only one winning season and played exactly 0 post season games, matching the Bills record so far this century.

I've not been following the Sabres but lets be honest the Sabres have been unstable long before Pegula bought the team.

Quote
Ownership is irrelevant.  It is not who is writing the checks that matters.  It is what the people cashing the checks do on the field or ice.

Except Pegula has shown a commitment to the downtown area beyond the sabres. Yes he is doing it to make a profit but the city is benefiting as well.

How about they/we start the movement for getting flagship status from SUNY and New York State, and then the whole problem solved.  Instead of all this pussy footing around. 
SUNY has their heads up their asses enough that we'll never be "officially" the flagship of SUNY.  Our only competition for flagship comes from Stony Brook.  Albany just lost their nanotech school and Binghamton doesn't have their own medical school.  Both don't have nearly the level of enrollment or research that UB and SBU have.  UB2020 could make UB the overwhelming flagship of SUNY.  SBU dropped a few ranks in the US News and World Report rankings that came out today.

Flagship? We are the 3rd highest ranked (using the US News Report that you mentioned). Not only do we have average sports, we don't have the best education. Sure there is potential, but they don't crown champions or flagships on potential.

We are the largest most comprehensive school in the system. The differences in the quality of the undergrad education is far out shadowed by the schools size, endowment, and profile.
