  1. I don’t post often, but this is a milestone worth acknowledging. With all that is happening in the world, and locally in Buffalo in the midst of Bills hysteria, it’s easy for an accomplishment like this to go relatively unnoticed. A top 25 ranking of any kind was almost unimaginable as recently as a few years ago, to say nothing of when we dropped football 50 years ago. Hopefully, we can continue to raise the bar in all sports and maintain a level representative of UB's standing as a university. That will be a major challenge, of course, but no more so than the challenges faced in getting

  2. I agree, I think they are more complimentary of our players than our own fans are.

  4. So, how did the class turn out? It's a little late, but I finally put something together. https://www.ubbullrun.com/2021/1/7/21036940/who-else-wants-the-macs-football-recruits-initial-2021-signing-classes

  5. I agree Friday's game is big - from a lot of different perspectives. Having Mballa and Brewton this time should help, but still will be a challenge. Toledo has been shooting the ball exceptionally well (EFG% is close to 60%). They will be tough to beat, and look to be favorite at this point, but I do not see them running away with it. If Graves can perform closer to last year's numbers and Williams, Mballa and Segu continue to play well - and we keep up defensive intensity - I think the Bulls have a good shot of beating Toledo.

  6. BG's loss last night makes Friday's game even bigger. As it is now a battle for 2nd place. I've never been a Toledo believer however this year they are actually playing defense. Yes they've played the weaker half of the conference and Ohio without Preston but still impressive. Knuckle up for a grind of a MAC season. Does anyone think Toledo will run away with it?

  7. Just a freshman in a tough developmental spot trying to find his way. It will be interesting to see his growth during his time at Western. No ill will.

  8. Here is a table from barttorvik.com showing MAC conference stats by team. Pluses thus far for the Bulls - Defense (Adj Efficiency Defense - 94.6 and 2P% Def - 43.9%); Rebounding (Off - 36.5 and Def 18.7) and 3P% - 39.6%; Areas where the team could improve FT% - 63.2% and 2P% - 47.8%.

  9. I held out so much hope for him but its waning quickly. Last year, he was not an immediate impact as a transfer but he was still a Freshman so I expected him to develop and find his role within the team. I thought there were some games where he showed promise as a clean up guy with decent defense. But he has shown no growth, at all. Like is he even listening to coaches? Tons of trash fouls, gets burnt left and right and canNOT make a layup.

  12. Where as I agree the other two have been very good. That isn't why Graves has been off.... He's up almost a full turnover and foul per game more than last year, while missing 3s at a whopping 8% higher clip and FTs at a 10% clip.

  18. It's a shame it's up against the Bills playoff game. But I'll be able to watch it on ESPN+ after along with the men's first game since making Jim Boeheim sad.

  19. I didn't realize that Chanse left the team before the incident. Either way, it still reflects poorly on coaching when they bring in guys that get involved in stabbings, batteries, and kidnappings. I don't care if it happens before or after their time at UB.
