1  UB Sports / Football Recruiting / Re: 2016 Commit - RB - Jonathan Lee on: July 22, 2015, 09:10:35 AM
Another awesome talent committing to UB! Congrats to Jonathan, and outstanding job from the coaching staff once again.

Is this class already better, website rankings wise, than any of Quinns classes?
2  UB Sports / Football Recruiting / 2016 Commit - CB Roy Baker on: July 09, 2015, 11:36:06 AM
3-star Corner back Roy Baker from Florida made his commitment to UB via twitter. He also had an offer from NC State

No doubt, very impressive start. There was a thread not to long ago about the 2016 class and how it was concerning how it was off to a "slow" start. Well, 2 months later we have 5 extremely solid commits that all have offers from other programs, and most of which had interest from P5 schools. Leipold and staff are doing an outstanding job getting the UB brand out there, and selling kids on this team and school. If you haven't been caught up on the recruiting, check up on the recruiting forums or check out Bull Run.

Leipold may be the next "big time" coach that started at the low ranks and built himself all the way up to one the best in the country. Let's enjoy this ride gents.
4  UB Sports / Football Recruiting / 2016 Commit - ATH Jordan Overton on: July 01, 2015, 03:14:33 PM
Possibly our most highly sought after recruit ever? 247 shows 17 offers, and interest from a plethora of high major schools. Welcome to the UB family Jordan!

Really happy for Willy to see him having this success in the CFL. For anyone who thinks Joe is a better QB then Willy was, I ask you do you see Joe having anything close to this success post UB?
6  UB Sports / Football Recruiting / 2016 Commit - OLB Hosea McMullen on: May 28, 2015, 08:14:21 AM

Not too concerned yet. Although we don't have a commit (that we know of anyway), there has been a lot of action on twitter surrounding UB and being very active on the trail. It's only a matter of time, and when one commits it usually starts moving quickly after that.

It's also worth noting that even though Coach hasn't recruited at this level, Rob Ianello has been there and done that and he is the recruiting coordinator amongst other things.

What's ironic is DePauls best win under Purnell was against ASU in Tempe.

I wish Hurley the best, theres no question UB is in a better place now than when he got here.
10  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Hurley and Arizona State on: April 09, 2015, 03:16:18 PM
Better pay? He could have made $2MM at Depaul! ASU paid their last coach a base salary of $295K + about $905K in incentives, equalling out to around $1.2MM. Why would he turn down a $2MM Depaul job that made no sense for him, only to later accept a $1.2MM ASU job that makes no sense for him?

We just put all of our eggs in the Hurley basket and offered him $550K. I don't understand why he would be so "serious" about ASU now.

This is assuming DePaul even offered him the job, and assuming the salary was 2Mil. No one really knows what happened in the visit to DePaul unfortunately.

I don't know anything about this situation but the buzz on twitter seems more real this time around.
11  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Dave Letaio to DePaul per Andy Katz on: March 30, 2015, 06:23:26 PM
Will we ever find out if Hurley turned this down or if Depaul went with their first choice?

There are numerous "sources" with conflicting reports. 

I think it's clear DePaul fans hate the hire preferring almost unanimously Hurley or Bryce Drew. According to a Chicago sports personality he was told that both Hurley and Drew were offered turned it down. Of course the Tribune reported the day before according to a "source" that they each wanted the job "badly." I tend to believe the former not the latter.

My hunch now is that Hurley will quietly sign the extension and go about his business. I think one thing with Bobby is that it's all about the kids and NOT him. Have to respect that greatly.

It is also possible that both Hurley and Drew wanted the job badly going in, but when they talked about certain issues it was a deal breaker for them.

From what I have heard Brooklyn is more or less accurate. Drew and Hurley were very much interested in the job, however for whatever reason the logistics behind the deal never worked out. I don't know the specifics, but the position was never formally offered to either one of them. This is what has DPU fans so frustrated, not doing whatever it takes to land a young up and comer and instead going back to a cocah that left the program 10 years ago.
12  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Football / Early Spring impressions? on: March 30, 2015, 11:13:04 AM
Has anyone heard or seen anything?

One name that i've seen pop up a few times as been WR transfer Collin Lisa. I'd expect him to be a huge part of our offense this year.
13  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Dave Letaio to DePaul per Andy Katz on: March 29, 2015, 02:35:42 PM
Happy for UB!

DePaul continues to drive their program further in the ground. The hired a search firm to bring back a guy from 10 years ago lol.. Needless to say DePaul fans (or what's left of them), are extremely disappointed with the hire.

There is more hope!

The DePaul Blue Demons have interviewed Tulsa Golden Hurricane assistant coach Dave Leitao and are seriously considering hiring back the former head coach, multiple sources told ESPN.

Many believe this is a smoke screen. I don't know how seriously they are considering him, but it would not make DePaul fans happy.

After I type this, Andy Katz reporting it's all but a done deal for Leitao.

Happy for UB, I hope Hurley stays
