Yale beat Army today.

My take is UB basketball will become a bigger deal before football.  In fact I'm fairly confident Hurley takes us to the Dance. He just seems to get the players. Hope he sticks around a while.  It's nice to climb the ladder but there is something to be said about being a THE guy a program is known for.

I remain convinced that if Hurley does take another job, our next head coach is already employed by this university.

Outside of Kentucky, we will probably be favored in every November game, right? Jackrabbits at home, Canisius without Baron, we should expect at least 5-2 if not 6-1 before December.

I wouldn't bank on that Canisius game without Billy Baron as some kind of guarantee UB will win we will see. Canisius will still have the coaching advantage experience wise with Jim Baron in this game you know a type of experience coach UB basketball should have hired in the first place which is huge in college basketball in my opinion.

While I'm not going to say that UB can't lose to Canisius this year, they should be the superior team. Baron is a huge part of their loss, but they lost the good Heath brother and Manhertz, more or less decimating their front court.

I like Zach Lewis at guard just fine and I really like Phil Valenti, but this is a team that has really only 4 bodies they can put in at the forward position in Heath, Valenti, Crumpton, and Bleeker, and out of those only Valenti is a proven commodity. They better hope their guards can carry them, and there's no guarantee of that since Zach Lewis is the only guy that got any meaningful play time last year out of that group.

Looks great. I love that we are now taking on other MAC schools in most of our recruiting battles and getting quite a few recruits. Wigginton, Diane, Navigato, and Perkins all could have chosen to go elsewhere in the MAC and the elected to come to Buffalo, the furthest school away from them in the MAC footprint geographically. I'm starting to think Oats' recruiting is black magic.

Outside of Licata, nothing about this years team interests me. It's just...blah.

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.
15  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Portsmouth Invitational on: April 19, 2014, 09:27:00 PM
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.
