  1. yup good catch - you are correct
  2. If he learns to shoot 3's he will be better then Perkins, but that is a big if. Mballa is already more dominant on the boards and on defensive. Perkins career stats for comparison:
  3. Josh Mballa stats since coming off the bench. Clearly it is working. He has been a stud and the only thing that you can say is maybe he should be playing even more minutes. 5W - 2L
  4. If they hire Whitesell, Hodgson is going to Bama along with our recruiting class. If for some reason they chose to not hire Hodgson then you may as well do a nationwide search because you've lost the recruiting class anyways. In no way would Whitesell every be the correct choice
  5. If Hodgson gets the job I am VERY optimistic about our future. Coach was who done most of the recruiting (same as Oats did for Hurley), knows the team culture (no need to win over locker room) and no starting from scratch with an entirely new staff, recruits, playing style. It is yet another step forward. Alnutt needs to continue to put trust in what he has built. It is without doubt the best for both short-term and long-term success of this program. Always scary to hire a 1st time head coach, but this would also allow the program to utilize more resources as he will be significantly cheaper then an external hire.
  6. Square one!? Absolutely not. We are a mid-major that has been successful through two consecutive coaching stints. You nail one more and you are getting very close to leaving the dreaded stepping stone mid major job territory.
  7. I'm sorry but Whitesell's record as a head coach is hardly a no-brainer and like it or not Hodgson is a much more attractive sell to a young recruit then an older Whitesell who's had his shot.
  8. No interviews. Hire Hodgson today. He will likely be able to keep most of the team + recruits together. The same exciting brand of basketball. Doesn't need to win over the locker room and continues the lineage of hiring within in the same fashion that Gonzaga did to become who they are. Hodgson is from WNY and in the time to come it success follows having your whole life here it becomes a much longer long term destination. Onward and upward!
  9. Please please please hire Bryan Hodgson immediately and keep this team intact. Graves please stay with us!
  10. So sad 😞 I can't even be mad at him. Thank you to Nate Oats and everything he has done for Buffalo!
  11. For comparison my parents are longtime season ticket holders for the Siena Saints, who have a lot of local support and have had some very good years but nothing noteworthy the past decade. They pay 375 per season ticket. Success drives interest, or in other words demand. This is a good thing.
  12. Maryland goes down to Nebraska. Gotta figure we'll pass them in seeding now with a clean weekend in Cleveland.
  13. I would imagine this is a mistake, but Jay Bilas insinuates that we are out of the tourney in the event we lose in our conference. He has been a big advocate of Buffalo and ranks us 22 in this post, but interesting nonetheless. https://t.co/Zq0GgX4aVA
  14. Win MAC and we’re a 5. Pull for all the favorites on the conference tournaments.
  15. 16 in net, 9 in RPI, 16 in Kenpom. 21 in AP poll. If we win out and don’t get a at least 5 we’d be getting totally screwed.
