  1. You read my mind on this one.

  2. If our only reason for keeping a coach is because he is less expensive then Buffalo basketball is dead.

  3. Is this set? In my mind I assumed that Mballa was done here, either moving on professionally or to another college team. If you told me the Bulls were losing the motivated Mballa who was working his way up, I would say that's a big loss...but if you tell me we're losing the guy who looked like he didn't give a crap (like against Canisius this past season), I'm not all that bothered. I still maintain that I'm not all that worried about who we're losing. I'm much more interested in the potential and growth of who's coming in than the lack of further potential of a group that fizzled out last season. I will definitely miss Skogman though. The whole new landscape of yearly free-agency in college sports makes me less interested and less enthusiastic overall. Why should I care so much about my school's team when the players playing for it clearly don't?

  5. I have offered on multiple occasions to help dig up the track free of charge. I will sign whatever waivers of liability are necessary.

  6. Kiara Johnson - from Tonowanda, played at EMU and Towson. 6’2 forward. Should be a good piece to the puzzle and finish her career at home.

  7. Former #309 recruit. Didn't do a ton in his time at Temple. Averaged 1.1 PPG and 2.7 RPG last year. 3 years of eligibility. Brother of former 'Nova star and NBA player Omari Spellman Edit: I believe he actually has 2 years of eligibility. His medical redshirt year took place in 18-19 and he’s played all 3 years since then. That would presumably leave him with a medical redshirt senior year and then a potential COVID year

  9. I noticed that he only played in about 1/2 of Temples games and did not play in most of Jan/Feb/Mar. I found the following: "Forrester appeared for the first time in 11 games while sitting out due to an extended illness that has affected the big man since Jan. 2. The junior center played 14 minutes in the blowout win over South Florida and came off the bench for the second time this season after starting the first 12 games of the season. While it's unclear whether Forrester will return to his starting role from the beginning of the season, his ability to play in the regular season finale should indicate his likely availability as Temple moves forward into conference tournament play against Tulane on Friday." Assuming he has a clean bill of health - he was starting prior to illness.

  10. I'd like to see Watt but I doubt he has any connection to the younger guys. He's also a big time player in Europe, so at his age I'm not sure the extra miles are worth it for him. I'd be surprised if Graves isn't added this year though

  11. I saw that we were after a transfer from Alabama, a safety. And Coach Mo was following a Cuse OL. Hopefully it’s someone who can play this upcoming season

  13. I personally don’t need my head coach active on social. But I’m not 18. Don’t need Whitesell to be like coach Burke but he has to have a pulse. And more importantly the team social accounts need to be waaaaayyy more active across social platforms. This goes for all sports. Social media is a big outlet for these athletes…the school needs to have a social footprint that keeps up with them. And it’s not a gimmick either…pro teams social accounts are very engaging and active.

  14. She’s def a worthy social media follow…she’s very active. New age. Relatable to players. And she’s on fire in recruiting. Really pounding the pavement.

  16. Awesome! I guess the kid looked unreal his freshman year and then dropped off last year. Was Mr. Basketball in Florida out of high school. Had some high major schools involved during his portal time it seemed. Lets hope he thrives here.

  19. Agreed, plus him coming back to our spring game says a lot about him and where he places the importance of his time at UB. I think it's awesome. I hope guys like Starks, Schrek, BO, etc. make it as well or become part of the culture. It would be great.

  20. It is one thing that he was done playing college ball. Now he's "staying" but leaving.

  21. Good bye. Don’t wanna be here then see ya. It’s all gotten out of control. And that’s coming from someone who doesn’t mind the one time transfer rule and NIL and player rights. I’m all for that. Do I think there need to be tweaks, yes. But in being all for that…see ya. We will find players same way we lost them. Rant over.

  22. It was the highlight of an awesome afternoon at Alumni Arena. I needed tissues. Was beautiful to see.

  23. Other that, most business leaders don't have message boards pointing out every fault and misstep and those leaders aren't usually expected to document their day to day efforts on social media.

  24. That’s how you make money, get promoted, and get real raises, so yes probably.

  25. The quote "water finds its level" is how college sports appears to me now. The players start at a power 5 or a mid major and the best mid majors will go to the power 5s and we'll get guys who couldn't get minutes at the big schools. By year 3 or 4 the guys are usually at the level they should be.

  26. Yeah, this past year did have a bit of a ‘cellphones on the sidelines’ vibe to it. That reference is several years old, and may not be best. I’m laughing about it though, so that’s good.

  27. Best shooter in the state of Georgia apparently. Coach Burke says she's a leader, fierce competitor and shot 45% from 3. Pretty crazy.

  29. Just add Watt and Graves. Also, don’t add any players outside UB. Stick to our players.

  30. Sorry, bud. I agree with your sentiment but you lay it on pretty damn thick most of the time. The fact that you knew I was talking about you indicates you're aware.

  31. He will be at least the second UB player to go to a team that won a NCAA men's basketball championship. The other player also appeared in as many (UB) games as Malik did. Unknown if he participated in pickup games in Tonawanda.

  32. It was basically one hand touch for the QBs. Once touch the play was blown dead. The last thing any coach wants is lose a QB in spring practice for the full season. That also explains why the QBs were in gray, unless of course they doing a remake of Casablanca with the blue team.

  33. In addition to Selebangue, believe we have been mentioned as talking to EMU's Njie and WKU's Butz. Seems to be on the radar for sure.

  34. Her last name is McNabb…enough said there. Realistic this was as sure fire as Jack bolting for Cuse. McNabb committed to coach Jack not UB. Maybe it took slightly longer bc McNabb was having the when to transfer convo. Meaning she watched the off season play out and thought I can de-commit now or play a season at UB then transfer. Either way imo she wasn’t long for UB once coach Jack hit the thruway. I’m kinda excited that coach Burke gets a clean fresh start from the jump. Her program now.

  35. It's fine, I'm not mad at any of them, it's just a ridiculous system that is the downfall of the system as it was. The big boys are happy, and those making the big bucks are happy as well, and that's really all that matters.

  36. "As soon as FLJs Jersey was in the rafters it was a done deal" I'd put money on it having been a done deal well before that. I know, it's tampering, it's illegal, it's blah, blah, blah... The only way FLJ was possibly staying at UB, and McNabb was ever going to wear a UB uniform, was if the interim Coach at Cuse somehow had a huge year this past season. Even that may not have stopped what was inevitable.

  37. 2 years in and the implosion is already underway. If anyone thought this was NOT going to happen is very naive. It happen a it quicker than I thought to get to this point.

  38. The worry about eliminating the transfer rule was that coaches from lower level programs that were successful could leverage their whole teams to come with them to a bigger name if they got a payday. I believe they’d call this a textbook example. Hot garbage.

  39. Waited until the last minute. I would say I’m shocked, but I’m not an idiot. Let’s go Coach Burke. If we dance this year, I’ll be a very happy man!

  40. Huge one, out of the guys we’ve been connected to I think he was #1 on my wishlist. I think he could be the centerpiece of the squad going forward. I also appreciate the fact that it appears we’re going after defenders. Adams was #161 nationally in steal rate his freshman year. We didn’t have anyone in the top 400 last year per kenpom lol

  42. I personally would be inclined to donate if I knew what I was donating towards. I think UB Stadium needs a major overhaul. I am aware this is not cheap, and my pittance of donations would not make a dent, but I would feel much more comfortable donating if there was a long-term strategic vision, funding target goals, etc., to achieve this (for example). I am sure internally these goals are set, but as a casual outsider, it's not visible to me, and I don't want my money going into a black hole. As it stands, I feel it's better to use my donations to the Honors College or the School of Management. I'm not opposed to donating to athletics - hell, I'm here on this board - but I have no idea the overall vision for athletics, and that stops me from donating.

  43. I hope there's no hard feelings - I think he's proven that he made the right choice. His path has led him to a legitimate NFL career. I sometimes wonder if things would have been different for Anthony Johnson had he made the same choice as KJ.
