What the heck is up with his offers? Some sites are saying he had NC St, Auburn, Arkansas, and FSU offers?? Could that possibly be true?

I'll try to dig more into it but to be honest I am swamped just getting intro profiles up for each back (look out tomorrow for a slew of posts on Bull Run).

I've heard he was a huge deal coming into the season and those offers where legit. I don't know if they did not stick or if they had him at another position but yes he had paper offers from all those schools.

Bobby is finding his style.  If he starts to get a little too much attention from the refs, he will turn his back and walk to the trainers corner until he cools off. 

I like when Coach Jack get all fired up.  She bends over the officials table by the radio booth, and shouts into the table top.  Hard to explain, but amusing  to watch.

I think he has shown great improvement over last seasins when it comes to finding the line and not crossing it... I've  not caught every minute of hoops this season but I don't beleive he has a T yet.

UB is playing at 10:00 for television.  The game wll be on ESPNU and hopefully blacked out in the dorms.

Per the AD they cant black out watchespn. I understand it's *technically* possible to block all ESPN traffic blocking specific games or even the watchespn platform would be difficult at best and likely a complete waste of time.

Most impressive stat? Only one foul from Moss.
Next most impressive stat? UB going 2 for 19 from 3.

Now can someone tell me why in the world UB is playing at 10 PM local time?

Because ESPN does this..

My point is that there should be some honor and ethics in the recruiting game.  If a kid says he is reconsidering a verbal commitment then talk to the kid.  If the kid remains committed leave him alone.


And how would a coach know if he was or was not reconsidering his verbal unless the coach asks?

You mean like Shannon Evans saying he was reconsidering his verbal after Reggie was let go?

Not every kids tweets his feelings out and some avoide social / print media all together (I know this because per NCAA rules I can talk to recruits). I'm just sorry that you have to be disappointed in LL for going after a player who had a verbal with some other school.

MD hit the nail right on the head. Nothing wrong with calling a kid or a coach and saying "Do the changes at XX have you rethinking your status, you committed to XX before each school had a coaching change".

Well According to Brook this is dishonorable

Not sure why you would suggest going after verbals to other schools for a new coach in the conference and FBS.  It did not exactly work out well for Lane Kiffin at Tennessee who did just that.

What Kiffin did was take recruits he had at Tennessee and brought them to USC. You're comparing Apple's and Volkswagen. THe practice of approaching players of interest when there is a coaching change at their intended school is common and was done to Buffalo when Gill left and Quinn was fired.

Kiffin also went after verbals to other SEC schools when he was at Tennessee.

Kiffin also breathes air and drinks water. I don't think those two facts contributed any more to his failure in the SEC then him talking to recruits of other schools... Hell Alabama hired him.

I think you were just looking for something to gripe about Brook.

http://www.ubbullrun.com/2015/1/22/7871881/dan-enos-leaves-central-michigan-could-this-reopen-some-cmu-verbals

Tyrone Millio is a cornerback who had offers from UB, CMU, Toledo, and EMU. He did not verbal until December and the Bulls really need to start building up the next generation of Buffalo defensive backs. at Corner.

Another potential target for the defensive backfield would be Jamil Sabbagh. The safety was holding offers from offered by Ball State and CMU. Taking a good corner and a safety from another MAC team would be a coup for Leipold

Finally Coach Leipold has a chance to keep the Cass Tech pipeline open. You can never have enough Cass Linebackers and Michael Oliver made his commitment to Enos back in the spring. Jeff Quinn had done well with Cass Tech and it would be a shame to lose that relationship because of our coaching change.

I would rather have the MAC than a NYS conference.

THIS!

There is no advantage in intra state conference anymore. Maybe you could get away with it in Texas but for anyone else it is impossible..

UB Needs to be in a conference which either has a national reputation (P5) or representation in Areas where our Alumni are situated (American). Honestly if UB could have swung an A-10 / MAC FB-Only it would have been perfect but obviously the situation with UMass has proven those things will not work out either.

So for now it's the MAC, where we still ahve not become the powerhouse which we need to be.

Having just listened to Rex's introductory press conference and never really listened to him ever before until today, I can say this guy never belonged in New York City.  Obviously he has to still prove every thing on the field, with that said, he's a fit for Buffalo.  Blue collar mentality....check.  We're going to play you for 60 minutes....check.  We are going to out work you...check.  We ARE going to be the bully....check.  I build the team to be a reflection of the community we represent....check.  He wasnt afraid of the questions asked.  He always had an answer ready to go and didnt stammer over them.  He actually met head on questions when they were asked to numerous people on the dias.  He also seems to have learned a thing or two from his fist head coaching job with the jets, humbled by it some what, yet keeping the competitive mentality that is needed in football.

Im curious to see where it goes. 

Hopefully this means the Bills finally start putting up a fight against Billicheat and that pussy Tom Brady, instead of rolling over like they have for the last decade or so.

I missed the conference but heard a lot of what you're saying. Seems like a good fit, now lets see if he can win some football games.

May be able to find more on him by looking at Shabazz High School. Milford Academy is not much more than an athletics prep school.

I did... Nothing
30  UB Sports / Football Recruiting / Re: Christian Gonzalez on: January 12, 2015, 03:29:43 PM
No known offers outside of us? Not even on 247's radar?

He might have been in academic trouble all of last year, but I can find nothing on him in this or last years databases.
