No love for Oliver's great night?

7 carries 64 yards and 1 TD. Runs of 27 and 17 yards. The kid can block and catch out of the back field too, although he wasn't called on to do much of that last night. He was getting action in the second quarter, which is where his TD came from. Looks like his chances are pretty good to stick to an NFL roster. He really looked like the old days of Michael Turner as a Charger out there.

I've always loved Oakland's uniforms, so I'm not sad that I'll be picking one up shortly.

No discussion of this on the Bobcats board yet.  I guess the mule train that brings the mail hasn't made it to Athens yet.

It's been mentioned on both their main board and the recruiting board. It's definitely on their radar.

Which board? Do you have a link? Does it gall them that he's coming here?

Seems pretty reasonable. I'd be upset too if one of our commits decommitted to go to Ohio. They seem more upset that Ohio didn't put any restrictions on than upset he came to UB.

Also, you have to believe Hurley is aware of his little brother Lindell Wigginton, class of 2017 PG:

That's our 13th recruit. Never unhappy to land a wing scorer. He could potentially start right away, depending on whether Ford takes a starting spot or is one of the first off the bench next year.

class break down:

Seniors - 2 - F,F - Regan, Ford
Juniors - 5 - G,F,F,F,F - Skeete, Wiggington, Hanner, Moss, Johnson
Sophomores - 2 - G,G - Evans, Much
Freshmen - 4 - G,G,G,F - Bearden, Diane, Frasco, Smart

That's a lot of upperclassmen in the front court, and while it should benefit us next year they will have to hit the recruiting trail hard to bring in some new bigs over the next two years. Normally I would be very concerned about our guard depth given how young they all are, but Evans has already proven his ability and Bearden looks sensational. I feel about as good as I could about a team that lost 3 of its top 5 scorers including a MAC POTY who the offense ran through. I won't expect them to take first place in the East but I certainly don't expect them to be cellar dwellers either.

A step up for Ben and the program. Hurley now with 4 full time assistants. I wonder if someone will be hired to assume Bens role as director of ops or if he will continue in that capacity but with the increased responsibility

Eric Harrield is no longer listed as one of the coaches. Besides you are only allowed 3 full time assistants and the Director of Basketball Operations who in most cases acts as the 4th assistant coach.

That's too bad about Harrield. I was hoping his AAU ties would pay off dividends for us. Wonder what happened.

McCrea's team lose on a buzzer beater. Javon wasn't called on to do to much offensively in the second half. He played solid defense and had a couple of nice assists and poked the ball away a few times. I think he ended with 10 points.

Just watching Javon and Roberts guarding 6'9" 280lb Davonte Gardner on the block shows Jsvon can handle himself against the truck drivers in the NBA while Roberts will struggle against the same type of player.

I was thinking the same thing. Roberts is quite good rebounding and scoring, but pretty bad defense.

At first glance, Miami, Ball State, and Buffalo seem to have the most impressive classes coming in. Ranking classes never really counts for much but I never would have guessed i would be most impressed by those teams in terms of recruiting.

McCrea had interviews with 5 NBA teams today.

He's also conspicuously absent from the weigh-ins & measurements. I'm thinking he skipped it. His height could really hurt him.

This is a huge class both in size and importance. Like the class it is replacing, we are getting 5 guys representing 5 different positions. Initial impressions are Hurley and staff did really well their first full year recruiting, but we will see how it pans out on the court.
15  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Jim Christian from Ohio to BC, how does it effect UB ? on: April 04, 2014, 12:46:44 PM
Now the rumor is Ndour is transferring out of the program. If he goes, I can imagine a Niagara-like exodus to follow.

Bad for the MAC, but probably good for the Bulls.
