C*USA is short one school. Just sayin'

They are? They have 13 current and UAB set to be back on the field in the 2017 season.

If Albany is struggling to fill dates, they should start a series with UMass. Lord knows, as independents, the Minutemen are going to need all the help they can get.

UMass will most likely end up in the AAC.

Unless the AAC gets raided I don't htink "most likely" applies here..

My favorite combination is the one used in the Temple Hail Mary game. Blue Jersey with "BUFFALO" on the chest, blue pants, blue helmet with White interlocking UB.

I cannot fathom how people can say, or downplay I guess is a better word, how using the name "New York" isn't a key component of NYBI.  No, I agree, there's more to the initiative, but using New York figures in pretty damn highly in the whole thing, if not the most.

Maybe it's hard to imagine because nobody said that... What was said was that the department name did not have to change (even if some want it to).

Name is everything, its who you are.  How would people be upset by a name?  Because its a pretty important part of who you are.  What is somebody went to Michigan and told them "hey guys, you are now the Michigan State Wolverines" and somebody went to Michigan State and told them "Hey, you guys are Michigan Spartans now"  I know thats an extreme example, but its ridiculous to say, "well its only a name, it doesnt matter"

I married someone with the name Park and it changed to Riordan... Still the same awesome chick.

If UB goes through this whole Branding study, however many parts there are too it.  Judging by the initial results, and for once trusting the info Brooklyn pointed out as to the purpose of the study, and taking what I think rma was eluding to in his comment, its likely that the University may tell White, "you know what, your "New York" stuff doesnt quite fit into what we're doing here", you just can't play off what affect that will have on his overall scheme.

And White can point to a 1.5 million dollar donation and say "this is proof it works, the donor said so"..

We can't be the premier athletics school for the state of New York without calling ourselves New York. Nobody east of Rochester would ever consider a school that called itself the University at Buffalo a school that somehow represented the rest of NY. Now, we could attempt to go the Louisville/Boise route and try to build a fanbase entirely out of the city of Buffalo, however those schools don't have rabid professional sports fanbases to compete with. It's a stupid debate. I think Danny has the right idea, he just can't get around SUNY to implement it properly.

We know this......

but, rma's comments in this thread, is what we're commenting about.  And Tim was the one who said NYBI has nothing to do with branding.......

Except tim never said that... but thanks for playing.

What tim said was "While many, including me, would love to see New York State in our AD's name that's not what NYBi is about"..

A brand is *MORE* than the name!

Except in this thread we are talking brand, as in name....and what the University is trying to call itself as a whole moving forward with this Branding Survey. 



I think NYBI was brout up by rma who said "Seems like NYBI wouldn't work well with this then. "

I simply said NYBI was about the entire AD brand, not just a name.

That people don't get that is not my fault.

The purpose of the survey is that when it is completed all and I mean all portions of the university shall be called the same thing.  The individual parts will not be able to come up with their own names.  Currently the law school calls itself SUNY Buffalo Law School.  Once the branding process is complete all parts of school will be called the same thing whether an individual part like the name or not.  The administration wants the one name and it will forced upon everybody/
Seems like NYBI wouldn't work well with this then.

What does one have to do with the other?
If they want all parts of the school to bear the same brand, it seems unlikely that all parts of the school would switch to NY, even without an official name change.

While many, including me, would love to see New York State in our AD's name that's not what NYBi is about.


Hmmm......So then its reasonable to say that White would be capable of...

"Building America's Next Big-Time College Athletics Brand"

by being UB, or Buffalo, or University at Buffalo then.....




Wow that's an amazing and origional observation by the anti nybi folks... Oh wait I have heard that before..

It's possible but more difficult. By not bringing the fact we are the largest and most comprehensive school in the state up we leave out a powerful weapon. Boise managed. But doing it as Buffalo like leaving your top polays out of the playbook.
