To this point Buffalo is really still his best offer. Part of it could be timing - lot of schools don't have any scholarships left for next year.



Toledo is a pertty decent offer for a young man from Chicago

Man Quinn in that video, ugh  how quick his era will be totally forgotten, or is it already?


Those who forget history....

Here is a Bulls related Butler update!

Jimmy Butler put the Bulls on his back during a 91-82 win over the Bucks on Monday, scoring a playoff career-high 31 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 46 minutes.

Now that the men won the MAC, anyone notice how the new facility (along with the East Club) is off the Capital Projects List on the Blue and White Site.

Maybe everything is going towards getting a Fieldhouse.

The Athletic Department really needs one big donor to step up to the vision.

Curious indeed..

Shannon Evans did what was good for Shannon Evans.  Just like his mentor, Bobby Hurley did what was good for Bobby Hurley.  Buffalo was their ladder, and we just got stepped on.

That's the only part that stings a bit.  For a fleeting moment i thought these guys actually cared about the University, the people they connected with at UB,,, the city.   Not.   Oh well, at least they helped get UB to the NCAA tourney which is something i was worried I'd never see. 

The last two coaches who truly cared about UB were dismissed by ADDW prior to the season that most likely would have had UB dancing. Coaches such as Lanier, Battle, Husband, etc., that care about the area and UB were not considered. Local top D1 players such as Taplin went elsewhere.

So "Long time UB Supporter"

Why are you just here now and just in time to badmouth the AD?

Jones came in 2nd by .06 hundredths of a meter. He was super personable and humble. Wished him the best for the rest of the season. He will have success. Final put was 19.81 meters or 65 feet. Pretty impressive for a 16 rock.

In inches he lost by 2.363 inches.

Yea but he lost by 3.2397e-5 nmi

I am kind of relieved that story of ronin (hired gun) coach and athlete-student player is behind for now.  Looking forward to the gridiron season.

Say what you want about Evans, he was on the all conference academic team.

Give the kid a break. Bradley has been to the dance numerous times including sweet 16s. It has often played in the NIT. The arena is twice the size of ours. True, the current stats for the MVC vs the MAC for teams getting to the dance favor the MAC  and that is ONLY because the MVC has lost teams i.e. Creighton, Butler, etc. Wichita State  with final 4 appearances plays in the MVC. Nate will be a key part of a program re-build. I'm not negative about UB only realistic.   

Butler left the MVC in 1934.

Trolls don't care...

This makes no sense, no sense at all. But if he is getting offers from crap schools and crap schools only, then maybe we are dodging a bullet here.
What happens if he wants to come back after he gets all of these crappy offers?

after all the bad PR we would have to take him back.

What bad PR? A kid with an LOI wanted to look at other schools when the coach left.

Or as I like to call it. Tuesday.

Has anyone else considered that we were part and parcel to something a least a little similar?  Josh Freelove.  Leading scorer at Alabama State, transfers here so he can have a shot at going to the tournament.  Now I don't know about anything more than that, or how he went about leaving, but we're getting burned by the same kind of situation we benefited from in the recent past.

Leaving a school because they are banned from post season play is a bit different.
27  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Football / Re: Season Ticket price on: April 21, 2015, 11:33:21 AM
Bull-In-Exile,
                    I'm not complaining about the $125 price of my ticket, I'm complaining about the jump from $12.86 a game to $20.83 a game. I know for a fact that there is not a big demand for tickets. Not sure what your point about Temple is? I'd gladly pay alot more then $275 if my home game tickets where for: Penn State, Notre Dame, Tulane, UCF, Memphis and Uconn. Again, $125 for season tickets to anything is very reasonable. I would just wait until there was a demand for the tickets before I raised the prices. Not sure what a single game ticket will be? Based on Season Ticket prices I'll guess $25. Charge $25 and get 4K people or charge $10 and get 10K people. The money is the same but 10K looks a lot better on TV.

Not wanting to start an argument. Your points about improving the program are 100% correct. But even with an outstanding field house and facilities, there will be no conference move until we start filling the stadium and you don't fill anything by making it more exspensive.

You think Temple tickets are more in demand? Their attendance rivals ours and they play in an NFL stadium..

Attendance and demand are not always correlative. It depends on how elastic the demand is.

The tweet is gone.

Few things in life are as predictable as that tweet getting deleted...quickly.

Based upon tweets from a former UB athlete it sounds like he was being abused ion twitter.  If he was, it was classless and understandable as to why he took the tweet down.

Abused is a word which gets used far too quickly today.. If he wants to play in the NBA he needs to expect a lot worse than what happened today.

Everyone can complain that UB should have a field house, that they want UB to move to a better conference, that they want xxxx

But those things have to be paid for.

Here is Temple's Season Ticket Pricing (to look at the AAC)

Location   Price
End Zone:   $150
Sideline:   $199
Club Level:   $275

We need to remove those Virginia schools from his blocked list. It's only hurting our perception at this point if it's true. Block ASU though. That's common practice in NCAA sports. You can't let your coach leave you to supposedly "move up" to greener pastures only to have him start poaching your players. That would be an utter joke on Hurley's part.

I've heard there are reasons for the VA school blocks. From someone completely outside of the UB ecosystem. Those of you who follow the annual migration of hoops players in April and see blocks will know what I am talking about.

pleas explain or point us in the right direction

There are usually 3 reasons that a school is blocked

1 - To keep previous coach from poaching talent or to block a school that made inappropriate contact
2 - Conference mate or close rival
3 - Because you may play them in future years..

So you have to assume if a school is blocked it is for one of these reasons or because the AD is a foolish child.  I have no news from anyone in the UB ecosystem, none at all, but I do know that ADDW is not stupid.

It breaks down like the "551K" narrative which the news was selling. The idea that white would be petty and low ball Hurley is crap, and it's not crap because I think white is a saint. If ADDW is a self serving greedy bastard but not a fool then he would have paid Hurley every penny he could muster. I talked about it before but we know Hurley was gone this year or next, it was common knowledge.



In this case I don't think White would spitefully want to hurt Evans, there is nothing in it for him. So I suspect any school blocked falls into one of the three categories.
