Lets face it, the MAC and its member schools no longer care about physical attendance. 

The conference has sold out to ESPN for TV money, which is minimal  now, and will be paltry by the time the contract runs its course.  Tje TV contract has moved  half the season to weeknight dates int the coldest part of the season which nobody wants to attend.

The schools just hope you will keep buying season  tickets, so that they can prop up their  paid "attendance" numbers and still make money from  both sides of the equation.

And the MAC is different from the Big 10. SEC, ACC, Big 12 and PAC 12 how?

First of all, nobody in those conferences is sitting up until midnight on an cold November weeknight to watch their team compete.

They sold out the fan base's access to saturday games for a sum of money that is pennies compared to those other conferences, a good percentage of the "TV" games will be relegated to 3rd tier internet only broadcasts, and now we are learning the Steinbrecher never allowed the schools AD's or presidents access to the entire ESPN contract before signing. 

According to this article, the schools still don't now what the entire contract consists of, and their lawyers were not allowed acces before the signing.

The article does not say that the schools don't know it says only no lawyers looked and the schools don't have a physical copy of the contract...

It still bull shaq IMHO..

Brandon Berry is flagged for a personal foul on a kickoff. He comes to the sidelines where Alex Wood gets in his face and chews him out (rightfully so) but Berry kind of shoves off Wood like he was blowing him off.  Did anyone else see this and am I reading too much into it?

Saw it, I'm not sure "shoves off" is the right word.... But clearly he blew wood off which says more about Berry than wood.

UB playes terrible, loses 37-14 and BSF blames the "New York patches"

BIE I am not going to debate you my UB football heart is broken enough with just reading the comments for the Buffalo News write up after last nights game if you can't see UB athletics has real problems with New York patches on the UB uniforms in the Buffalo community good luck with that. Link here. http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/ub-football/ub-mauled-by-ohio-in-meltdown-20141106\

I'm not looking for a debate from you because there is nothing to debate. It has been pointed out to you numerous times that this team has played awful football in front of empty stands for many years while being called "Buffalo". Any *HINT* that NYBI is part of some problem is borne out of foolishness.

Like NYBI, Hate NYBI, I don't give a flying frack. At the end of the day, however, NYBI has nothing to do with the poor play on the field.

Glad to see it! I have a lot of connections to the Red Claws up here in Maine so I hope he gets on the team and tears it up.

Tim, I don't want to be a pain but can you please just edit that article. The first few sentences are pretty rough and Freelove didn't transfer to the "Buffalo Bills".

Yea I'll get it fixed... I was writing it while making dinner..

The Spectrum article today offered no additional insight beyond what the Athletics department said. Not surprised.

Im surprised... Athletes getting into trouble is generally something they drool over. The chance to poke shots at White and Hurley would have been the icing on the cake..

It looks like all four Big 4 teams will be wearing some version of Buffalo braves uniforms when they play at the First Niagara Center on November 29th.

UB's version:



This is just my opinion so don't sue me ;)

Buffalo missed a chance here...

First off all I love the idea finally someone with brains inside the Big 4 schools with the Buffalo Braves throwbacks it is a great idea long over due which BSF has called for to go back to Buffalo basketball's glory days in Buffalo in my opinion. I like your design better BIE for the record but I like most of your ideas better over Mr. Wonderful clueless ideas ....

I think Mr. White is doing a great job, so far, as the Athletic Director.  He has the vision to think beyond Buffalo and think long term.  Trying to link UB to the state of NY is the right direction.  When I lived in other states, fans from across the state (4, 5, 6+ hours away) would drive to sporting events (normally football) to see the "flagship" team.  He is seeing if he can do that since that is what it is going to take if UB wants to take the next steps from an athletic standpoint.  Otherwise, you are left with only with those fickle locals who like to complain and can't see past "wide right" or "no goal".  Buffalo '66 is their existence.

I also think the hire of Bobby Hurley was inspired.  It created buzz around the program and has helped with recruiting. 

Great job, AD White.

#NYBI

I agree about White. While I feel like he missed an opportunity to make a better throw back here I do think he is making good moves to place UB as a school more people around the state can care about. Given that a plurality of UB students come from down state it seems like a wise move to make.

Granted, SUNY New York is the largest and best endowed public University in New York. However, the Buffalo Public School System is the largest and by far the best funded school system in WNY. That doesn't make it the best in WNY.

Have you two met?

At the undergraduate level, SUNY New York simply is not perceived as good as SUNY Binghamton or SUNY Stony Brook.


There was a key word put in there... In point of fact the schools at an undergraduate level are all pretty much the same. Some have better programs that others in given fields...
