  2. Love everything about this. Love the old, recent and new coming together. This is how tradition and legacies grow. Hope the current players picked the brains of the vets. And really hope they played some competitive pickup.

  3. Then don’t watch it? Nobody is forcing you to watch. Who cares about what Moss did 7 years ago, or why Monte left, if you don’t like it, don’t watch the tournament. It’s that simple. Stop complaining.

  4. Some upper echelon Euro league team should just scrap their roster and adopt this one because I swear as good as these guys are all on their own it will never be as good as they are together.

  5. Hello everyone, had the pleasure of speaking with two of the players today and I’ll give a quick rundown of my questions for them and their general responses. 1. on how Linguist and the coaching staff are doing: they seem to love the staff, linguist in particular. Practices have been tough and competitive but fair. They believe the staff will do a great job as the season rolls around. 2. Shape of the team: Both believe the team is just as strong as last season and are convinced they can upset Nebraska and Coastal, both will be tough but they’re confident. They also believe that even with the transfers, they have depth to cover the losses. Both expect a few true freshman to get some game time, especially WR Jamari Gasset, was compared to Nunn in ability to catch balls. Another player they believe could come in and contribute is Juco WR Chandler Baker, said he had incredible speed and route running ability. 3. concerns: while confident they seemed to talk about the OL when I brought up their worries. Especially the Center position, they did not have a true backup center last season and will have to rely on a non true center to take the job, Bence Polgar was the consensus belief for new center. Still with a possible inexperienced group of OL’s they believe they will get the job done, the OC and strength coach have pushed them really hard. 4. on new players (transfers, not freshman): the CB we got from Texas tech should be an instant starter same with Josh Rodgers, the D-linemen, forgot where he came from. The WR from Eastern will take Wilson’s spot as our deep threat. Both said the JUCO guys especially Tra Wilkins, could be instant contributors. general thoughts by myself: I love the optimism from these two guys, they also told me the rest of the team feels the same. I’m not worried or believe that this is going to be a reset year, as few may think. They generally feel like we are going to take off from where we left last season, one of the top dogs in the MAC. we did have in depth talks about other factors/situations and please let me know what you would like to hear as a fan base. I have connections with few of the players. 1 special teams player, a new WR and a returning readshirt WR. They are willing to talk to me because they’re my friends and I personally know them outside of their college football careers appreciate it if you read this far, sorry for any spelling or grammar errors

  6. Hi All, I wanted to share our newest player evaluation on Buffalo’s newest recruit in the class of 2022, Devin Ceaser, from St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School in Alexandria, VA. The evaluation is free and very extensive. It also comes equipped with 40+ film clips to support the observations made. News of Buffalo’s scholarship offer extension broke a couple of days after Ceaser’s strong showing during a live period event in the DC/MD/VA area, so I thought the Bulls fanbase would be interested in reading up on what he could potentially bring to the program. Ceaser is incredibly explosive. Please copy and paste the link below (URL is secure) to view Ceaser’s evaluation: https://www.pointguardeyes.com/devin-ceaser Enjoy! Sincerely, Tyler McKittrick Editor and Publisher of www.pointguardeyes.com

  7. Perk says out loud what active players and coaches won't/can't say, but something we all know to be true - “If you look at the MAC, we are the only New York team,” he said. “We’re always going into Ohio, playing against Ohio refs, and Ohio people. They always want the Ohio team to win the MAC, if we are being real. We’re used to that.”

  8. Great game. Got chills seeing them back together. Dennis really stepped up as an outsider. Wish I didn't have to work Monday. Oh well, eastbound and down.

  9. Jim has stabilized the program and has us in position to be in the title conversation every year moving forward. Congratulations to him on a job well done, let's keep it rolling. Can't wait to be in the building in a few months.

  10. The school has no say in this, its a bunch of guys who met at or through ub and became friends. I don't see the issue I for one like that they still feel a connection to the University

  11. But that 13 or 16 to 0 run they had in the third, took me back to watching that ranked team. It was an every game occurrence

  12. Good news IMO, I know many in this sub will be unhappy though. The door is open for a great season. Combined with a strong recruiting class he has the opportunity to oversee sustained success without the risk of jumping ship to a bigger program

  13. Funny you say that. Back when JQ was our HC, I jokingly faxed in my NLI on National Signing Day. I told them that I had 2 years of eligibility left, ran a 7.2 40 yard dash, and had a well above average arm for a 55 year old. I guess the coaches all got a good laugh when it came across the fax, except for our recruiting coordinator at the time. He didn't recognize the my name, and was asking around as to which coach had recruited me.

  14. I could not care less about what wrongdoings they presented UB in the past, they are back together in a tourney and I am friggin' pumped to see them again. I want Bearden to toss up one of those 8 foot driving floaters and then I want Moss to Cauley-Stein the sh!t out of some Ivy League nerds. Welcome back, boys!

  15. My family and I decided to make the trip to Columbus for today’s game. I’ll post some some pics and share my thoughts and perspective when I arrive at the arena. I’m expecting a big win. I think the 2018-2019 team thought they were a legitimate final four team (I know I did).

  16. Obviously the injury to Wes dampens the mood. But another stellar performance by this group. Contributions up and down the roster. This has been so much fun to watch.

  17. I love how in the first game Blake and Bearden had good games. Then tonight it was Harris, Perk and CJ. So many weapons and just flat out dogs on defense. I truly hope the boys back in Buffalo are watching. Winning is an attitude.

  18. While there will obviously be indirect fallout from conference realignment (in terms of a total shakeup of the college sports landscape, potential collapse of the Big 12 as we know it, beginning of formation of superconferences), I'd be pretty surprised if UB was a major player in any move. A jump to the AAC - as the AAC is currently constructed - would absolutely be a step-up for UB, and something the administrators should consider if given the opportunity. That said, I wonder what the AAC will look like after this shakes out. The real athletic "meat" of the conference - teams like Houston, Cincinnati, Memphis, UCF, SMU - are all prime candidates for Big 12 expansion if the Big 12 tries to survive. The AAC minus those schools in some combination looks vastly different. No offense to schools like East Carolina, Tulane, Tulsa - but that's a much different conference than the AAC as we know it. While I can see some logic in the C-USA - honestly, I'm not convinced it's better than the MAC. Ever since it was raided by the American, it's not the same conference. It's a 1-bid basketball conference that's on par with the MAC. C-USA football is better, but not by much, and that's only because the MAC is the worst FBS conference. The MAC is 10th in terms of FBS conferences, but right now C-USA is 9th. I don't really think C-USA is an upgrade at this point. It was back in the day when Marshall jumped, but I'm not sure it is at this point.

  20. I have to confess, it was me. I thought since I have 4 years of eligibility left, they might take a flyer on a 49 year old alum "project" type player that wants to come back to UB for a 3rd (or maybe even 4th) degree. I haven't heard back from the recruiting coordinator yet, but the summer isn't over!!

  26. Absolutely. Back then it was just a matter of when the run would occur. There was a comfortable feeling watching them play…they were consistent. And it’s as though they haven’t missed a beat. Absolutely love these guys. I can’t sit here and tell you whose my fav…they all are. This is such great exposure. So glad the university embraced them.

  31. This is true on both football and basketball. The coaches are doing a great job bring back the guys that started it all to motivate the new guys. Love seeing this. I hope it continues.

  32. Glad they got all the fellas together while everyone is in town. Very cool to see a decade's worth of Bulls connecting. Great for the health of the program. PS Mading is on his tiptoes if you look closely 😂

  38. You people crack me up. Let's focus on the news of the recruits. Plenty of opportunities during every game thread in upcoming season to debate JW as a coach. Or is this your preseason training to get in top form for seasonlong debate. 😀

  39. I know there has been a lot of speculation out there, but there are a few facts to consider. I posted this a while ago, but am too lazy to find it now. The gist was that the MAC had about $7M in football TV revenue, but the AAC had like $70M. It was an order of magnitude difference. And, of course, the top feeders had TV revenue in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Since I don't think we are losing anyone from the MAC, adding mediocre P5 teams, I don't think, will elevate the MAC. It will just diminish those mediocre P5 teams. The best strategy for UB, in my opinion, will be to get to the best conference they can. AAC or C-USA seems more reasonable, but if something crazy happens and they can go higher, I'd endorse that 100%. Yes...the football stadium is not close to what it needs to be. And the donor base isn't there currently. I am sure those in the various conferences know this. But do they have the vision of what UB athletics could become? Buffalo is a sports rich town, with a rabid and loyal fan base for the Bills and Sabres. That's attractive. Can UB create an athletic product that can tap into that fan base on a consistent basis? So far, they haven't, for a variety of reasons. But sports fans are already there and many, many, many people in the region have a degree from UB (or a family member with a degree from UB), since the school is so large. If I am an executive from another conference, UB has a lot to offer (overall) if you have a vision. Go Bulls!

  41. We got so many weapons so if 1 or 2 guys have an off night we have another 2 or 3 that can step up. Also, Jordan, Carruthers and Clark are probably the best defensive guards in this whole tournament. Fun to watch. Let’s win this whole thing.

  47. Why? TBT is all about the players and their relationships with one another. No scholarships, no curriculum. Players assemble teams based on their comfort level with one another to win $1 million. Bearden left because he felt it was a better opportunity (or positive drug tests squeezed him out, who knows). He still spent a significant amount of time at Buffalo and developed relationships with players who obviously trust him and his abilities. Moss left under worse circumstances, but the same can be said of him. They’ve both matriculated from the amateur ranks and as adults are choosing their teams to make some money, and their teams are choosing them. If they think Andrew Atman adds something to their bench more power to them. They owe nothing to the university at this point. I for one am just excited to watch them play again.

  48. Your UB Bulls come in at #61, Tops in the MAC. Two of our opponents, Akron and BGSU, are #130 & #129. ODU is #113. I don't know how good we'll be after this off-season of turmoil but our schedule is favorable. A bowl bid should be in reach. https://247sports.com/LongFormArticle/college-football-rankings-2021-season-alabama-clemson-ohio-state-oklahoma-all-130-fbs-teams-167632109/
