  1. Running on 1st, 2nd, 3rd downs and then throw a lousy 4th down pass is not the recipe. mix it up a little? be creative
  2. If Kansas somehow hangs on to beat #3 Oklahoma, they should erect a Lance Leipold statue tonight. 10-7 KU midway through the 3rd.
  3. Keep in mind this is the worst Ohio team in years and who lost to Duquesne. This ain't Nebraska they're playing. This effort and preparation has to fall on the coaches. It's egregious.
  4. What a disgusting first 5 minutes of the game. Hopefully that is the worst and UB decides to show up soon.
  5. Color me surprised. coming back from 31-10 basically just running the ball. Can’t stop their WR but at least UB showed heart making this a game. It’s kinda like the ODU game in reverse. Missing the 24 yard FG hurt momentum quite a bit. Still some time.
  6. Kent State has some athletes. (code for speed). We don’t seem to have many burners or creativity to make up for it. Maybe Coach will do some recruiting and shore things up this winter.
  7. The team has steadily been getting worse. and the DBs and WRs stink. Not sure what gets this turned around. There’s zero explosiveness in this offense.
  8. And of course Vantrease throws 2 perfect passes and both dropped. Pfft. got bailed out by a personal foul penalty on Kent.
  9. That TD run by Crum was ridiculous. Patterson had him and whiffs and #1 got trucked. Kind of embarrassing for the D there. The O needs to show up tonight.
  10. Glad i played golf with my dad instead. Recorded the game and watched after. Bummer.
  11. McDuffie has been really impressive so far. You could tell from game 1 that the 2021 UB offensive line is not the same dominant run blocking unit that they've been in recent years. Maybe they'll improve as the season goes on...maybe some young guys will develop. In the meantime the RB's are mostly grinding out yards on their own and McDuffie is doing it the best. Sorry, this is a Leipold thread.. Don't poach any more of our players Lance!
  12. This is a tough game. As mentioned they beat Pitt on the road, and a very impressive 44 points, 28 first downs and 517 total yards of offense. Pitt doesn’t stink by any means. And in their win vs San Jose the Broncos only gave up 119 total yards and had 8 sacks.
  13. Such a weird game. It’s a win but feels like something else. One great quarter and the rest was nauseating. The 15 yard penalties are absurd.
  14. Tough to watch all the personal foul penalties by UB. Hope coach isn’t going to be OK with the aggressive penalties, like he hinted at after the first couple games. Now it may cost games going forward.
  15. I think Marks has been supplanted by McDuffie after that fumble. Plus he’s not running as well this year between the tackles. So far anyway.
  16. UB has certainly taken care of business against the CUSA schools they’ve played the past few seasons. The level of football isn’t really better than MAC. the bottom teams may not be as bad as the MAC’s worst.
  17. The punt block nonsense is a group effort. it’s on coaching. it’s also on the guys back there showing no awareness of what’s coming up the middle. and Finegan stands there taking enough time to have coffee and a donut before he punts it. Maybe slide to the right and kick it rugby style.
  18. Conservative play calling, Marks can’t seem to crank out any yardage these days. hope that changes later. Punt block- embarrassing D hold them to a FG great job, and special teams blocks the FG for a TD. Just spectacular!
  19. Clicking around about the ODU game, I stumbled on to press conference with the ODU coach, Ricky Rahne. Seems like an impressive guy and a good leader.. I think he will have that program playing pretty good football in the not so distant future, just hopefully not this week. There's plenty of talent in the DMV area for UB to continue pulling kids. After the Patterson's and several other Maryland/DC players that have come through Amherst, UB has good name recognition in that part of the country.
  20. Sounds like the "Leipold effect" is going in reverse there. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/32250750/kansas-starting-running-back-velton-gardner-enters-transfer-portal-playing-decreases
  21. On their board some Kansas fans were pretty bummed out that not only did they get our coach and staff, they poached some of our best players...and UB still has a better football program. (based on the Coastal Carolina game)
  22. No thread on him but KJ Osborne caught a 64 yd TD pass from Cousins on first play of the game vs Arizona.
  23. Overall, a great effort by UB.. the final score was closer than I thought it would be. I agree with others in that McDuffie has been the best running back so far. He deserves more carries. I'll stand by what i said last week, in that Vantrease is OK. He's pretty accurate when he has a good pocket. BUT, he looks like the same QB (in my opinion) as he did back in 2019. No better, no worse...just the same. I'm sure he's the best passer on the roster today, but Mo and staff will certainly be looking to upgrade that position during his coaching tenure. By the way, the worst call of the day by far was the Vantrease punt. I think it was a one score game...4th and 11 in our own end,, obvious punting situation. Pin 'em back and make them go 65+ yards. So coach calls that QB punt play, but this time Coastal Carolina smartly puts a return guy back there (they watched Nebraska film)...and we are covering the punt with regular O-linemen and position players (and our QB). Coach should have immediately called timeout and brought the punt team out. Of course the guy from Coastal fields the punt, shakes one tackle and then easily gets downfield around a bunch of guys who don't normally cover punts. That was brutal. Gave them a short field and an easy TD run to go up by 11. Coach Mo or the Special teams coach has to look himself in the mirror on that one and wonder why they called that.
  24. It's a tough call. Look around the country. There are other programs that have built smaller, but nice stadiums on campus. USF in Tampa is desperate to get out of Raymond James and fund an on-campus stadium. In my opinion, it's better for the college football experience to play on your campus.
  25. The question is, can UB score to keep up in this game? Coastal's defense didn't look all that good against Kansas. But KU does have a fast QB, who was running around all over the place on them. I have not been impressed with the Bulls offensive line so far. The run blocking hasn't been there. Hopefully that changes. I think CC scores in the 30's.. if UB holds them to anything less I'll be impressed and they will have a chance for the upset.
