I think just the fact that we haven't dropped a game to a universally crappy team so far makes this year better than others.

Same here. Bingo hurts but we were missing two players.... Other than that we won the games we should have and played well in the ones where The opponent was way better.

Some place someone mentioned why schedule South Dakota State?  There was no choice in the matter.  It was a contractual return trip from the final years of the ESPN Bracketbuster.

That was mentioned in the Article but as the Bracket Buster is no more that frees up two games a season.

Usually a reasonable conversation consists of give and take and compromise, not one side calling the other "butt hurt"

And the other screaming loudly that people who support NYBI "dont get Buffalo" and are "brash uncaring New Yorkers"

The sauce that's good for the Goose....

Has it happened yet on this thread, no, not yet, but it eventually will.

Especially when people run in and intentionally poke people in the eye...

i do have to agree there are a few posters here that don't get Buffalo.  That's kind of the truth.

It's also a gross generalization of people which is not always, or even mostly true.. Sure some of the NYBI supporters are downstaters but some live in your hood..

Quote
I also know that the perfect response to this is, "well if you've never left WNY, how do you know what else is out there".  Guess what?  Frankly, for most of us, we don't really care.

I'm not going to get pulled into a fight here, I beleive you are wrong to dismiss the experiences of people who lived in Buffalo for 20+ years and who have lived other places.

Quote
And.....people wouldn't feel poked in the eye by the truth if they weren't first trying to deny the fact that it existed.

You run onto this thread, which has been civil and productive, practically begging to start a fight so please drop the "it only bothers you because you know you're wrong" line..

Cue the " well what's the big deal, your just being a typical, butt hurt, afraid of change, small minded,  Buffalo News reading, anti NYBI , going against St. White,Eventually people will figure out that NEW YORK is in Buffalo" response.

I can talk from 39 years of living in WNY, and almost 19 years at my job dealing with people across the country, that those NYC questions never go away, so that eventual figuring your counting on, is poppy cock.

Funny I saw someone say they wanted state or suny but not just NY... So I post an image of a giant S reminisent of anotehr school he talked about...

Where did I indicate he had some kind of Butt Hurt?

my comment wasn't directed at your art work, that's why I didn't quote it. 

Ok my bad for being defensive...

Quote
As to your artwork, I'm curious to see what an interlocking NY looks like inside the big S.  I'm wondering if that would be possible using the same font they're using for the Screaming NewYork logo.  I think that might look pretty sharp.

As I've always said, logos are easy to change..

I think if it is done right when the poers in Albany agree, it becomes New York State University - goes by NYSU, NY State (like NC State) NYSU-Buffalo or whatever, but not just NY

So something like this then? Just doodling..

**************************************************************************************************************************
The following post below is my opinion, don't sue me.
**************************************************************************************************************************
What I would do is give up all the non conference home games when UB students are on holiday break

You say that as if every school is not trying to do the same thing... Of course White wants a schedule with a bunch of home games when students are on campus his challege is that all 340 division one schools all want the same thing. So *some* of our games will be when school is out.

Quote
So I would give Buffalo the teams they like to see UB play on television because Buffalo in the winter watches television sports the Nielson Ratings prove this I believe Buffalo is top 10 for English Premier League soccer and Golf so Buffalo watch sports on television for the most part more so then other areas our size in my opinion.

Keep in mind the MAC hoops revenue sharing formula includes the number of home games. If you don't have enough you lose out on conference payout.

Quote
So what I would do is have UB basketball play all up non conference games on the road yearly till UB gets into a Power Conference when ever that is like St. John's at MSG, Georgetown at Verizon Center, Seton Hall in New Jersey, Connecticut at XL Center, Providence, Michigan, Wisconsin like we did this year, Kentucky, Syracuse, North Carolina, Duke, Notre Dame, Indiana, UCLA, USC, Stanford, California, Temple, Villanova, Marquette, DePaul big basketball schools like that for recruiting because players want to play the best in my opinion. Then go into the MAC schedule for home UB games.

As I say you punt away conference money if you do that and others have pointd out that you don't want to put the kids through a meatgrinder. Finally there is the matter of there classes.

In today's Inquirer:
Very informative article and obvious differences between Temple and UB, however I could not help but think of Buffalo while reading it. I never realized how poorly Akron's attendance has been since they opened InfoCision stadium (Very proud of leading the MAC in attendance). New stadiums don't always equal financial success.

Akron's a bad measure because they have been pathetic since they opened that stadium.

I agree with you, BSF, to a point. I wouldn't mind one or two games against the Dukes and the Georgoetowns. They did that this year and didn't get any "W"s but played it close. But don't load up on more than two. Play some good mid-majors from the tier of conferences just above the MAC - A10, AA, MVC, WCC. Don't schedule the bottom feeders from them either; play contenders. Don't know how the committee takes that into consideration, but beating the Grand Canyons and the Robert Morrises just doesn't cut it.

I think the fact that the AD was able to schedule games with Kentucky and Wisconsin was awesome.  Much, much better than previous years, which was awful.

I suspect that with the combination we have now (White and Hurley), we will be able to get more top teams to play on the road and a few better tests.  I agree that the Bingo and Grand Canyon games...we didn't get much out of that. 

Let's take care of business against Cornell today.

Go Bulls!

Grad Canyon was part of the "tournament" we played with Kentucky.

...we drubbed this team by 30 last year in Alumni. The reason I ask is that Albany fans have been saying for years that UB keeps turning them down for a 1 for 1.

Albany just got drubbed by the mighty Niagara Purple something-or-others last night by 18.

Can we all just agree that the Am-East conference is a joke?
Maybe inconsistent is the word you're looking for.  Stony Brook loses in OT to Canisius, then wins at #13 Washington

I think StonyBrook and to a lesser extent smAlbany are the cream which will rise to the top of the AE but that conference it pitiful. They don't have a team with winning record.
28  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Torian Graham verbal - JUCO transfer 4 star recruit on: December 31, 2014, 11:21:06 AM
But is he worth it? Our guards are Hurley guys. Does the potential out weigh the headache?

Explain, please. Skeete and Evans were recruited by Reggie. Hurley cemented the recruit of Evans and brought in Bearden. What does it mean to say that "our guards are Hurley guys"? They all are Hurley guys now.

I'm not knocking Hurley or his recruits, including this one. He is pushing the envelope, however, vis-a-vis Reggie.

I thought Evans was a Hurley recruit. My apologies.

Evens was a Witherspoon kid who reopened his recruitment when spoon was fired. Then Hurley got him to recommit.
29  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: TRIPLE DOUBLE!!!! on: December 31, 2014, 10:13:08 AM
Yikes!!! Evans garners FIRST triple double in history of UB basketball and nary a peep about it?! Even if it was against a weak team it remains one helluva night!! I particularly love the 10 assists having grown up in the golden age of basketball when team play was revered with outstanding teams such as the Knicks, Celtics, Lakers, Bullets, etc showing how basketball was meant to be played and where the assist was appreciated more than the person scoring. Awesome display last night!! Congrats MR. Evans!!

With just under 11 minutes to play, Buffalo already had five players in double figures, and really only Lamonte Bearden had a subpar game. The only whiff of excitement came when Shannon Evans had 7 assists and 6 rebounds with plenty of time left.

By the end, Evans got to 10 and 10 in addition to his 14 points to record the first triple-double in school history, Division 1 or otherwise. Rodell Wigginton also had a double-double with 14 and 11 himself. Willie Rodriguez led Binghamton with 14 points

I wish they played all the other SUNY's more. There could be some good rivalries develop like what we have with the Big 4.

I think you have to choose... Big4 or SUNY4 Not enough room in the schedule for both.
