Now, I don't believe in scraping the football program, but name another college team with great support and success that has an NFL team in town?
Minnesota, Miami, Cincinnati, Georgia Tech/Georgia, Stanford

I also think it's funny that one of the commenters said that UB should focus more on academics.

Throw in University of Washington, University of Houston, and both Arizona State & SMU have the support just not the success.

St. John's has offered job to Chris Mullin, but former Red Storm star has not accepted yet, sources told ESPN.

SJU is the one I'm worried about now. I'm much more optimistic about the proposition of Hurley staying next year than I was on Friday.

Either a GF or Bobby Hurley, either way it's good news for Evans!

Appears to be deleted...Didn't see it.

Evand said afterward that it wasn't UB related.

Well this is not sounding too good.  Gotta ask, if Hurley bolts, is there anyone on UB's staff that could keep this ship afloat and retain the incoming talent?  
Oats

What do assistant coaches earn in the BE? If it's more than what UB would be willing to pay Oats, maybe Hurley entices Oats to fly the coop. There goes the Detroit pipeline. This is sickening.

Mid majors hire assistant coaches away from top programs all the time. Oats would be foolish to turn away from a poTentially stacked team if he was offered the position. I can almost be certain Oats would take the job if offered. He would be our best chance at retaining as much of our core as possible.

I think we are all getting ahead of ourselves at this point.

Siting at my hotel after a Thursday night of craziness (seriously? $2 drafts/well drinks all night? When can I move here?). So pumped for the game today. I swear the city of Columbus is as excited for us as we are. Also haven't run into too many WVU fans so far. The only draw back so far is the 2 am closing of the bars.

Will be headed off to greet the team as they leave the hotel around noon then to the official pre-game party. It's raining pretty steady but that won't slow us down. Go Bulls!

Haven't gotten my call yet. Season ticket holder. Getting nervous.

That was the precise moment I finally was able to let myself believe we were going to win. Total euphoria.

Finally got through to the ticket office and was able to get a couple 200 level for the weekend games.
9  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Columbus Travel Thread on: March 16, 2015, 08:40:18 AM
I started this for Cleveland, so I'll start it again for Columbus.

Just booked my room at the Westin Columbus which is about a mile away from the arena. Booked for Friday and Saturday. About a mile walk to the arena but it's a room.

I know nothing about Columbus. Any insight as to where we should be spending our down time would be greatly appreciated.

Who else is making the trip?

All those who dogged and doubted Hurley can just get in line to kiss his ass. Two years to the dance. Case closed: Bobby > Reg.

I knew there would be someone on this forum who would bring out the negative on a day like this.  This team, this program didn't get built in a day, and didn't just spring from nothing.  All these guys along the line, building and building, helped set this up.  Winning last night isn't a dig against anyone in the past who helped build Buffalo basketball.

Congrads and props to the team and coach Hurley for how they've developed this season.  They've become a very tough team to beat in the past month especially, becoming a team that doesn't break and allow the opponent to go on a run.

Congrads and props to the team and coach Hurley for the way they've responded since dropping to 6-6 in the MAC.  These teams are always a work in progress over the course of the year.

Congrads and props to the players who kept making big plays and never wavered the past 2 nights.  Everyone had big shots and big rebounds.  Props to the coaches for seeing that they needed to clamp down on the perimeter - the past 2 nights, after an initial flurry, neither opponent was getting many good looks outside.  After starting quick, guys like Kretzer, McAdams, Simons were invisible. 3MU indeed.  Props to Justin Moss for toughing it out.  To Will Regan for playing such sound defense, and hitting some huge shots at the right time.  To Bearden for playing better than we're used to freshman playing.  To Evans for being so bold and fearless, this year the risks mostly paid off (and had guys like Ford to clean up the shots that didn't).  To X and Rodell for crashing those boards.

Congrads and props to the fans who made the trip this weekend.  We had a good time yesterday before the game at Sokolowski's, even though there was an hour wait.  The only thing I missed out on was going down to the court afterwards.  Security wouldn't let us down there, I always dreamed of getting my picture taken on the court after they won it all, and I wanted a piece of confetti as a souvenir.  Thanks Cleveland.

Sorry you took it that way. I just know there was much distrust and downright hatred for the Hurley hire. I felt this needed to be said.  It's easy to hate and predict failure because the odds are always against success. Change is hard for some people.

I don't think most people criticized the hiring of Hurley, just the firing of Witherspoon. I don't recall too many predicting failure (though I admittedly had no knowledge of Hurley when he was hired).

I'm certainly willing to admit I was wrong. I was against Reggie's firing but it's already paid dividends for the athletic department.

Game Time: 210pm Eastern.

Who's going?

I'll have to see if I can get the day off on short notice, but if so I'll be road tripping down for the day.

Anybody know if there's a pre-game at Harry Buffalo again?

I believe from what I saw it start at 5:30 officially but I'm sure there are probably UB supporters there already.
13  UB Sports / Basketball Recruiting / Re: Maurice O'Field - 4 star JUCO guard Commitment on: March 12, 2015, 06:29:41 PM
O'Field tweeted he's in Cleveland for the tournament. I love when players are involved with the program before they are even enrolled. Pretty sure Navigato and Perkins both caught road games as well this year.
14  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: UB Named new home of the MAC POTY (Moss wins) on: March 11, 2015, 12:15:06 PM
No votes for Hurley for COY. Can't argue with the choice of Keno Davis though I expected a vote or two considering how much was lost from last year's team.

If Hurley sticks around a bit he'll likely suffer from Keith Dambrot syndrome where his teams are too good from year to year to be named COY.
15  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: New Hurley deal in the works on: March 10, 2015, 05:48:14 PM
I'm perfectly fine with an extension. With the level of recruits we are bringing in, I can't imagine a scenario we are firing him , so it likely just raises any potential buyout if he lands elsewhere.

Hope we can retain the whole coaching staff.
