Soccer will still be at UB Stadium. http://www.ubspectrum.com/news/view.php/788420/State-of-emergency-brings-new-UB-Stadium

"There will be temporary lines painted on the field before soccer games and removed before football games."

The following post below is my opinion, don't sue me.

Can anyone tell me why UB soccer can't play at a town park or Canisius Demske Complex?

Because they are UB students who sometimes have classes on game days...

Why does UB and Canisius pay these people that work in the UB and Canisius College athletics departments with no real vision or ideas to solve problems that come up?

There are logistical concerns with any kind of shared facilities plans. UB nor Canisius 100% control their schedules so shared facilities means a potential conflict. THere is also the concern of perception. If you're a DI school you should be playing sports in your own stadium.

What does it cost UB to play soccer at the stadium.... The expense of painging some lines, thats way cheeper than using someone elses field.

There answer is always we need more money to build this or that someday instead of solving the problem "now" more realistically then putting a UB soccer team in a 29,000 seat football stadium that isn't solving a problem it is creating a problem in my opinion.

If the stadium were only for soccer I would agree but if you have a 29000 seat stadium sitting on campus why the hell would you not use it? What's the down side?

I'm betting UB might be a co-tenant in any new Bills stadium if it's built downtown.

I would think if it's in Downtown or even Niagara Falls you're probably right. If it ends up where the old Seneca Mall was than probably not.

If UB can't lobby the stadium to Amherst then they need to lobby for the rail line to be extended from the south campus to the North campus. With the Medical Center and south campus sitting on the metro rail it makes no sense to leave North disconnected anymore. If UB is the engine that is to help restore the region then quicker access into downtown is a good thing to set up..

The white turf would have been Trevor's psychological radiator.

On another note, every time the fieldhouse is discussed, I usually start thinking about the periodic maintenance cost associated with turf.  It's taken a long time to save up the funding for it's initial purchase.  When it finally arrives, it's future upkeep will unfortunately mean that each next new shiny toy will take a little longer to acquire.  I'm not saying they shouldn't get a fieldhouse, I'm just sayin'.

Keep in mind the turf in a field house has no exposure to the elements..

Gentlemen (and I use the term without qualification).........when does summer practice start?  Chubby?  Brook?  BIE?  We need to start talking UB football instead of whining about unis and fields and logos and stuff that won't win one game.

I'm ready to head to UB to check out the boys......when do they start practice?

PS........to those (Chubby) who might have been thinking about comng to the Winnipeg at Hamilton game to see Drew......that game has been moved to McMaster University (my son's alma mater) as the new stadium won't be ready for the first two scheduled home games at Tim Hortons Field (apparently they ran out of coffee beans????).  Only season tix guys get to go; I've been refunded my tickets for that game.  Maybe next year, or when Drew comes to TO.......

We started ramping up our preseason football coverage this week ;)

Nice to see "Buffalo" has as much priority as the word "of". Ugly.

Well UB is in a bigger font than "New York" so were good...

Hopefully the old turf can be moved to Kunz Field.  The old turf is in better shape than what is on Kunz.

That's an interesint thought brook... I guess that might mean soccer moving there as well?

Notre Dame.  You'll have a hard time competing with >100 years of tradition and consistent winning.

Notre Dame barely made the top-10 in TV ratings last season despite being the only college football team that was once again force-fed to the general public through their garbage NBC deal. They cannot qualify as "America's Team". Nobody can.

ND - 1 School was in the top 10 in TV rankings despite a so-so season. They were also the #3 school in terms of apparel sales. They are pretty darn close to America's team...

All though the turf is starting to age, as of the end of spring practice the only work that I knew that had to be done was to work on the ground under the turf.  There were depressions in the turf similar to divots that had to be fixed.  As someone said above the problems with the field came about because of the winter.  There were no plans for a new turf, but that could have changed.

As for a white turf, Bull in Exile ot it right.  A white turf does not work in Buffalo.

If you have to rip the turf up to fix the underlying structure and the turf was near the end of its life you replace the turf as well. As you say I doubt here were plans to do so but when you already have to incu the expense of ripping turf up and putting it back down miht as we'll replace a turf getting on in years

Stop being a UB naysayer Debbie Downer trying to stop UB athletics progress get with the times of college athletics that is what you basically told Buffalo sports fans with New York Bulls so if Buffalo had to accept SUNY Bulls with horrible patches you can accept something we Buffalo fans want a different color turf then green UB football field in my opinion. Next I hope great new UB football uniforms are coming then BSF is good and there is some hope for UB athletics in my opinion. Let's Go Buffalo

White Turf.... In Buffalo? We get that from November onward... I am ok with color turf and fancy designs, I honestly don't care but a white turf would be even worse than the bleh grey turf going in at EMU.

Also, the MSG tax situation. They just re-modeled the stadium to the tone of nearly 1 billion dollars with 0 government support. I'd rather give up some tax money than take money that are collected on taxes and build the Bills a team store at Ralph Wilson.....plus some new jumbotrons.

I agree... I'm all for tax breaks for people who want to dump their own capitol into infrastructure which benefits the area.
