Well, if their coverage of the Bisons is any indication, they'll still pretty much be ignored. The Bisons also reside on ESPN 1520.

***Not to get BSF on another Bisons rant***

You'll get courtesy mentions on WGR and an interview here or there.

a variable.... It means pick a party, I don't care which...

I think it would be as foolish on Air America or whatever conservative talk radio station you listen to...

I was up working an incident until 2:00am so forgive me if I am missing sarcasm...

50,000 Watts that  nobody listens to and in which they don't talk about you because they are busy looking to hang a politician from $PARTY is not a good flagship for you're sports station. During the day they are not going to talk about you and if anyone whi disagrees with $PARTY tunes in they are going to tune right out.

The Fan was a better deal, perhaps the best deal ub could have gotten last year. We went from soft rock on WECK to the only sports talk radio station with an open spot.

Yes BSF has talked about wanting this for over a year of course there where critics on this board of BSF but BSF was telling it like it is and some can't handle and accept the truth Buffalo Fan Radio Station 1270 sucked reception wise it was time to go for UB athletics in my opinion. It does a lot for UB athletics below are BSF reflections on the Buffalo ESPN 1520 Radio deal.

A year ago 1520 was a liberal talk radio station right? YOu think that makes a good flagship?

I'm just amazed that you read BSF. Nowadays it is something I just skip, every time.

Slowly killing this site, one long, unreadable post at a time.

What would we all give for a "hide all posts from this user" button?

Those never work, people reply and quote...

Albany, NYC, Rochester, and Buffalo. The Buffalo station will carry a coaches show that at night will go out over 50,000 watts across the mid Atlantic and New England.

My dream scenarios are

1 - Stadium across from North Campus in Mahers
2 - Stadium in Downtown with a shared fieldhouse / practice facilities built with stadium project money on UB's campus..

Mahers??

That must be what happened...

**************************************************************************************************************************

Brooklynbull a better audio link is when WGR grilled UB AD "Mr. Wonderful" Danny White UB fans should listen to that UB interview and a UB alum/fan will realize gee I thought it was just BSF that felt that way about New York Bulls not a lot UB social media and most of the Buffalo media too wow there are more BSF in Buffalo then I thought. Have a listen I heard "Mr. Wonderful" live and let's just say he wasn't really prepared WGR 550 questions was like BSF was there himself asking the questions cross examining him on the witness stand good for WGR 550 exposing UB athletics and NYBI today as the phony baloney most Buffalo sports fans thinks it is but some on this UB board in my opinion. And one can be a UB sports fan and question the present leadership in the UB athletics department and that phony NYBI. I also didn't like where "Mr. Wonderful" made it like New York Bulls was all or nothing for a potential Power 5 conference that is how it came off and I don't agree with that at all in my opinion.

Even if New York Bulls fails UB athletics will grow because like I said UB football will be even more cheaper then the Buffalo Bills down the road when prices are going to go way up with a potential new Buffalo Bills stadium and new Buffalo Bills ownership so UB athletics will grow regardless of the nonsense that is "Mr. Wonderful", NYBI and the New York Bulls in my opinion. "Mr. Wonderful" came back at WGR 550 with I am a newbie to Buffalo what a fool he wasn't prepared for BSF line of questions by WGR 550 because most out of town UB alums are like this board just buying everything he says like a sheep bah bah all I can say is wow that is what is leading UB athletes heaven help us UB fans in Buffalo with "Mr. Wonderful" leading UB athletics I am a newbie to Buffalo wow just wow in my opinion. Let's Go Buffalo

You and I must have heard different interviews, White seemed very prepared to me.
26  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Hurley on GR radio 550 today on: July 14, 2014, 04:14:38 PM
Hurley will be on GR 550 this afternoon as part of the UB ticket blitz. Another good  move by Danny White to get Buffalo's so-called sports station on campus and give their listeners a break from 24/7 Bills/Sabres coverage. They're broadcasting live from AA. Exposure always helps. It'll be interesting to see how ticket sales go. It will also be perhaps the first opportunity to hear Hurley talk about new players in the program and his expectations for the 2014-15 season.

Interview is already over... I caught the tail end when he was talking about Lebron..
27  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Football / Re: Football Field Getting Much Needed Work on: July 14, 2014, 02:40:40 PM
Out of curiosity, does the Bills think that Bulls are competition?  Maybe not right now but in the future?

I don't really think they perceive us as competition. If they did they would not let us use the feild house and rent out the stadium for the black Friday game. At best they view us as an organization they can sometimes work with then there are common interest and at worst they see us as a gnat.

My dream scenarios are

1 - Stadium across from North Campus in Mahers
2 - Stadium in Downtown with a shared fieldhouse / practice facilities built with stadium project money on UB's campus..
28  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: It's Dallas on: July 14, 2014, 09:40:30 AM
I wonder what they are telling him to do. I get the feeling this is just a warm up for the drafted guys and the undrafted guys are just there so they have somebody to play with.

A lot like NFL camps..
29  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Football / Re: Football Field Getting Much Needed Work on: July 13, 2014, 10:55:24 PM
I have news for both rma and BIE back in the day both Canisius and UB shared War Memorial Stadium for decades

You mean back when both were small regional schools?

Quote
how come busing wasn't such a huge deal then but now it seems to be a big deal at least for you two anyway it is?

1 - Because the Bulk of UB's students are now in a different city where as back when the teams shared a venue they were both just a few miles apart
2 - Because it's a different world for college athletics now.

Quote
See I am sorry but soccer draw flies just to turn on the UB Stadium lights and scoreboard has to cost UB some money in my opinion compared to a Demske Sports Complex that has a lite bright scoreboard like what UB Softball uses in my opinion.

I don't care about your opinion I care about facts... Please tell me how much it costs to to turn on the lights at UB stadium for two hours? Then tell me what would it might cost renting a different facility (which incidently also has lights).

Quote
UB baseball also can use Demske Sports Complex as far as I am concern if they don't like the little league field they have show me huge crowd support then we can talk.

Too far from campus, "in my opinion".

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...

Quote
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.

Quote
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?
