16  General News and Announcements / General Discussion / Re: Bills are staying in BUFFALO!!!!!!!!! on: September 10, 2014, 12:53:09 AM
Not sure what all the enticement about Pegula buying the Bills is all about, other than the team staying.

Let's not discount just how huge that is Brook... The Bills could easily be leaving.

Quote
If he does for the Bills what he has done for the Sabres   They may never see the playoffs again.  In the three full seasons of Pegula's ownership of the Sabres they have had only one winning season and played exactly 0 post season games, matching the Bills record so far this century.

I've not been following the Sabres but lets be honest the Sabres have been unstable long before Pegula bought the team.

Quote
Ownership is irrelevant.  It is not who is writing the checks that matters.  It is what the people cashing the checks do on the field or ice.

Except Pegula has shown a commitment to the downtown area beyond the sabres. Yes he is doing it to make a profit but the city is benefiting as well.

How about they/we start the movement for getting flagship status from SUNY and New York State, and then the whole problem solved.  Instead of all this pussy footing around. 
SUNY has their heads up their asses enough that we'll never be "officially" the flagship of SUNY.  Our only competition for flagship comes from Stony Brook.  Albany just lost their nanotech school and Binghamton doesn't have their own medical school.  Both don't have nearly the level of enrollment or research that UB and SBU have.  UB2020 could make UB the overwhelming flagship of SUNY.  SBU dropped a few ranks in the US News and World Report rankings that came out today.

Flagship? We are the 3rd highest ranked (using the US News Report that you mentioned). Not only do we have average sports, we don't have the best education. Sure there is potential, but they don't crown champions or flagships on potential.

We are the largest most comprehensive school in the system. The differences in the quality of the undergrad education is far out shadowed by the schools size, endowment, and profile.

The State University of New York Buffalo New York "New Era" SUNY NY Bulls, whose official team motto "ex mea sententia", has been emblazoned on the new black coat of arms.

I think the Mr Wonderful ugly suNY New Era Bulls logo was good to get people used to seeing New York on things. But I think soon we either need to go all in or go back to just saying Buffalo.  We need a real NY logo that doesn't play around.  Ask Golisano for money if donors are slowing this down. Whatever. I just hate how we're in between two brands essentially.

I don't disagree but there is only so much that can be done between now and Friday..

Kyu,

http://www.ubbullrun.com/2014/9/9/6126437/note-to-ub-athletics-and-espn-style-matters

I took your image and wrote a piece around it (pimping UBFan and your twitter page). I seriously doubt that Athletics will "flag you for it". In my experience with the regime they are eager for fan driven outlets like Bull Run and UBFan to have a place in Athletics. What you guys have done at UB fand for a decade+ is damn impressive and I think your Logo is way better than what we saw on the screen at ESPN last night.

It's the espn mobile website.
I had to make my own.
I'll probably get flagged by Athletics, but until they come up with a square one, I have to do this.

That's a great one..

That looks like a joke... I like the mark for letterhead and even the field but it's damn silly to have it for that purpose..

NYS in the same font would suffice..

Ticket Master still shows many sets available

Yes appears to be the case now, last night TM had no listings.

Im seeing 131 tickets available on the sidelines but the NS bleachers are anyone's guess.

Army Player    Pos    Status    Date    Injury

Army's offensive line got very beat up during the off season, so much so that at one point it looked like four linemen might miss the game. Fortunately for Army it looks like three of those four players are now listed as probable for this weeks contest.

They are also feeling better about Raymond Maples who is one of their big weapons in the backfield.
Steve Shumaker    OL    Upgraded to probable    9/5/2014    Hamstring
This would be a big one for Army to have. Shumaker Has appeared in 26 career games and 23 of those are starts. Last season he was named to the Phil Steele 2013 Postseason All-Independent second team and selected to the 2013 FBS All-Indepdent Team as an honorable mention offensive lineman.
Hayden Pierce    DB    Upgraded to probable    9/4/2014    Undisclosed
Price is a Senior DB who Appeared in 11 games, starting 8 of them last season. On the year Price hadf 42 tackles of which 22 were solo efforts.  His best game last year came against BC where he had eight tackles, 5 solo.
Raymond Maples    RB    Upgraded to probable    9/4/2014    Undisclosed
Maples is one of the best Army has ever had. He is coming off his second consecutive 1,000 yard season, just the 3rd Army back to ever do that. He ranks sixth on Army's all-time rushing list with 2,489 yards(2281 in the past two years) and has 10 career 100-yard rushing games
Jaryn Villegas    OL    Probable    9/3/2014    Undisclosed
A true freshman who might factor in the game if there are depth issues on the line.
Stefan Moreau    OL    Probable    9/3/2014    Undisclosed
A sophomore who saw no action last season. He is slated to start at right guard.
A.J. Schurr    QB    Probable    8/31/2014    Hamstring
He Army's backup but was last years starter versus Navy.
Justin Gilbert    OL    Out for season    8/15/2014    Knee
Gilbert was a starter last season and would have started this year had he not blown out his knee in the preseason.
UB Player    Pos    Status    Date    Injury

Buffalo lost face against the Dukes but the team did come out of the game unscathed.

The only known issue is an illness that Marqus Baker has been battling. That means Dwellie Striggles probably gets the start this week.
Marqus Baker    DB    Out    9/2/2014    Illness
Baker Played in all 13 games last season and with the loss of defensive backs he was going to be a starter this year. In 2013 he finished off the season with 16 tackles (10 solo) to go along with one interception against Western Michigan.

Other than interceptions and possibly generic tackles other stats may not exist.  Those stats were just not kept on an official basis until much later.

I'm well aware of that.. Defensive stats were dodgy until the 70's so I will do the best I can. I have the 1960 offensive stats and have started in on the rest of the 60's..
30  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Football / Re: Buffalo Bulls Record Watch going into army on: September 05, 2014, 09:04:42 AM
Nice compilation of stats. 

I have a fair amount of confidence on the top 20 or so of the modern era for defense but until I can get my hands on old programs, old statbooks and the like it's hit or miss.

UB has told me they don't have the very old stast so I am going through old new papers and periodicals trying to find them. What I really need is old game programs.
I don't know when I'll have time, but I can check the UB Archives sometime this semester if you want. You'd be surprised at the amount of old crap stuff they have there.

That would be awsome!

Seconded... I know that getting these up to date is going to be a long term endevour... Probabally on the order of 2 years.

Finding full team stats going back to 1999 won't be incredibly hard its the other 86 years that will be difficult...

Well I did just get 1960.

 I just found a news papaer with the end of year stats for 1960
