May be that Eastern Michigan team was not that bad a team in Cleveland last year.

It was a lot better than many UB fans wanted to five them credit. They underachieved for sure. But the reason we lost that game is the same reason why we've lost a lot of games over the years, bad choices with the basketball and guys forcing bad shots rather than letting the game come to them and not sharing the ball and making the extra and right pass. If Evans continues on the path he set in the Robert Morris game and Bearden and Skeete follow suit I believe we have a very strong chance of winning the whole thing this year.

EMU had the best field goal percentage defense in the nation. Their defense is built around forcing bad shots. I really thing they may be the best team in teh MAC this year. Boring as hell to watch but great fundamental defense.

I agree on their defense. That's why it's so critically important to be solid fundamentally, not force bad shots and pass the ball when you're well guarded. We did a poor job last year and that's the major reason why we lost.

To quote Mike Tyson... Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.. Not saying you're wrong just that it's no simple matter to pull that off..

Going back to Pellini and Youngstown State.

Is this a move for them to eventually move up to something like the MAC? It seems like quite an investment for a FCS program (I still think of it as I-AA).

Depends on how much they pay Pelini and what his long term plans are.. I don't see the MAC expanding any time soon in fact it's doubful that any FCS team gets a callup unless one of the conference gets poached, even then with CCG deregulation on the horizon who knows..

Your headline was "Buffalo Bulls Coaching Search: Is Lance Leipold the New UB Head Coach?".  Your poll in the piece was asking what people thought if Leipold was the the new coach.  It never said that he was the coach.

Headline was from a peice I had in the can before Matt confirmed... The tweet going firm was at 7:12 PM still 20 mintues before SI...

Quote
If you want to be a journalist be one.  Do not hedge an article and then say you broke news.  You could have written that you believe that Leipold will be the next coach and stated why you believed it as was done in a follow up piece.  If you were right you broke the news.  If you were wrong it was a good try.

This is a poke with a stick.

I never said I wanted to be a journalist Brook... If you want to poke me find a different stick. I find it funny that you (1) give SI credit, (2) try to bring Paul Peck into this who said nothing, and then three (3) try to run *us* down for hedging after you did #2 (and I am referring both to #2 above and the other #2)..

Of course Peck knew, because someone told him. Matt and Conrad found it on their own with no help from the AD or "sources" and we still beat SI and the Buffalo News.. Hell Brook we even knew before you did...

All we really failed to do was pull some lame move like coming on to UB fan and dangling the fact we knew over other UB fans... I call that move "Pulling a Brook"

Conrad on Bull Run says Lance Leipold.  I'm quite sure it's him too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lance_Leipold

It is per Sports Illustrated.

We broke it a half hour before SI but you never miss a chance to poke someone with a stick..

Red and I did the car ferry (S.S. Badger) from Manitowoc, WI to Ludington, MI in summer of 90 when she was 6 months pregnant.  Not recommended.

We did it with our kids in August but no pregnancy. It was fun but yea I could see hating the Badger if you're with child.

I know Buffalonians will hate this but Toronto is easily one of the best things in proximity to Buffalo. Their people are cocky but that city is freaking beautiful and has a lot to do.
I couldn't agree more. I highlighted this fact to my wife this past weekend with good memories of our $5 school bus weekend day trips to Toronto from D'Youville College, a full bus of students where some just wanted to shop, some wanted to get drunk, some wanted to catch a Blue Jays game or a play and some wanted to hang out in a beautiful international city. Good times. And deifinitely worth a highlight.

I'm really surprised that a reliable ferry from Niaraga County to Toronto has not be created...

May be because it has failed on multiple occasions from Rochester.

FWIW I have used the WIsconsin to Michigan Lake Express and it's an affordable wat to cover the distance.

What's lacked in the US / Canadian side is the political will to make it work. A ferry from one of the largest metropolis in North America  to the 9th most visited tourist destination in the US could work if done right and with buyin from both governments.

I took the Michigan to Wisconsin ferry in 1975.  It was basically overnight.  The difference between the two is that it is much easier to drive from Buffalo or in Rochester than it is from Milwaukee to the Grand Rapids area.  By the time you drive to the boat, load on the boat, sail and get off the boat it is just as easy to drive it directly.

Beleive it or not Brook the world does not begin and end with your memories of 1975.

The ship you're talking about is a tourist service for fun, and I've done it.  The Lake Express is a high speed ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon and it takes about 2.5 hours, that same drive is closer to 5 hours assuming you get through chicago with minimal traffic.

If we gave up on everything that failed we can drop the federal department of education, then worry about ferry service.

**************************************************************************************************************************
The following post below is my opinion, don't sue me.
**************************************************************************************************************************
I hear people on this UB board parading around like UB athletics is hot stuff please we are not even close to merchandising on the MILB level it is embarrassing some on this UB board wake up this is American sports business UB athletics needs to change or be left behind in my opinion. Next HD television are like what $200 today dirt cheap they need to be in the UB Stadium all restrooms, food service stands so UB fans don't miss the game while online for food in my opinion.

Also totally new kitchens and grills added so we can add real Buffalo area business food options in my opinion.

If only Mr Wonderful wanted to take a whole side of the Stadium, hypothetically take the 200 level in the east concourse, and enclose it in glass with high def TV's and great food. He could then maybe solicit 1000$ a year for those seats and use that revenue to drive other improvements...

You must stink at capture the flag BSF... Cause you're always off base!

I'd personally make it a 16 team playoff. I'd put the 10 FBS conference champions and then 6 more at large teams.

If you want to push for something realistic you have to throw out the idea of each G5 sending a team. I would go with 8 teams; 5 P5 champions, Best G5 team, and two wild cards based on rank (P5 or G5).

So this year

1    Alabama   12-1
2    Oregon   12-1
3    Florida State   13-0
4    Ohio State   12-1
5    Baylor   11-1
6    Boise 11-2
7    TCU   11-1
8    Mississippi State   10-2

I like what I saw.

It's a good sell on the School, City, and Region..
29  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Buffalo #18 in RPI rank on: December 08, 2014, 04:35:01 PM
Does RPI really mean anything at any point of the season? We have all seen MAC teams with a good RPI get passed over come tourney time. We just need to win the conference in the season and post-season, punch our own ticket to the dance, and drop an upset on someone like, oh, Syracuse.

It's great for us but unless the rest of the conference plays well it will be meaningless.
