Would bet anything that the names we heard last go-round in Greg Paulus and Jeff Boals  (assistants at tOSU) and the always-connected-to-Big 4-jobs Kevin Kuwik (now at Dayton) will surface through the local media. Nick Mendola mentioned Jamion Christian (32 y.o. HC of Mt St Marys) on twitter, young but worked under Smart at VCU.

 I wonder if someone like NJIT's coach Engles, (to reach a higher profile) or Tim O'Shea now at Bryant (get back in the MAC) might apply. But my guess would be White shoots for a guy like Heath or unconventional once again, like offering the job to a non-coach like Wally World.

News spreading fast so no doubt about. Now just hold on to commits as best we can, flaunt the extra $ for the run at some other 'big' name, which I gave no doubt White will go for.

Alan Pergament posted the game rating in his blog today. Simply amazing, Average of 11.1 for a Friday afternoon game on TNT, with a high of 16.4 in the last minutes. Not as high an average for the UB I-Bowl but beats all but a few Final Four ratings from the past. And higher than any SU, Bona, NU tournament game.

If anyone has not seen this yet,  a tweet from Darren Rovell during the start of the game. None other than the guru of sports media branding complimenting our move. Of course many replies from those who just don't quite get it: their commenting shows how well the brand is doing its job.

"Buffalo's decision to put the "New York" brand out front is a smart one"

Listened at work and the drive to the Peace Bridge..had to park at the casino lot in the last 5 minutes. So proud. Living here in WNY the last week to see all the local support was amazing. Not quite as huge as FB 2008, when even WGR had periods where UB football talk trumped the Bills dreadful season. But close..and we should have even more attention on us next season. I can't wait to see the local ratings this one, a tight game at the end.

I'll be at work but I'm too excited to sleep. Gathering all my UB things to cover my cubicle with UB blue and white pride.

BN's Alan Pergament's media blog post with many tidbits on the weekend. The local rating for the champ game of 4.4 was great for ESPN2. Very cool that Ian Eagle and Our Man Gottlieb will call the game.

FYI, @salinterdonato is the best media feed on Army's practices and injuries

Army will have an OL with 5 new starters. They had 2 returnees coming in but their best lineman, T Justin Gilbert (6'7" 271), will miss the season. Then today they said Left G Steven Shumaker (6' 282) won't start as he has not practiced. Their board also says RB Raymond Maples is gimpy. In their press conference their coach (who mentioned his time as an assistant at UB) said many injuries and little OL depth besides freshmen. He also respects Tepper and is worried about the various fronts UB will present with his inexperienced line. I'll predict many 4-man looks with Sokoli teaming with Barksdale/Ford to gain more size vs the diving Army pee-wee line. Clog the middle and let Skinner-Stockman-Redden clean up.

As the bullrun articles pointed out Striggles had a very, very tough day. It wasn't until after the game that I read Baker didn't play due to illness. It was Striggles' first career start and Duquesne knew to go after him instead of Lester. An interference call, several 10+ receptions, burned on the long TD..not good. They said today Baker won't be back for Army, but that shouldn't hurt badly as Army rarely throws and Striggles, while not fast, is a smart, physical CB. So he has to concentrate on getting off blocks and containing the edge. But we NEED Baker back for Baylor. He's the other CB starter and winning the job wasn't close this spring.

He was a BULL for North on their way through Sweet Home and to the title game. A few days ago when I checked out his twitter page his pic was of him standing next to an evil orange 'S'. So I didn't have any expectation that he'd make a quick choice. Very glad he made the RIGHT choice and changed that pic quickly.
