  2. Just got mine all set . We added two more seats on top of the 7 we had, even though our seats are now in a B&W club donation section. The ticket office said the phones have been going nuts over the last couple days with renewals and new season ticket holders. So - despite the change in coaches, it seems there's plenty of interest in the upcoming season
  3. Update - it's got a pending offer. Which one of you guys bought it? Or - is it the new headquarters for Bull Run?
  4. Guy is making $2.45M, plus "Moving expenses to relocate from Buffalo." I don't think he's sweating either of those costs.
  5. https://www.zillow.com/homes/2196-OAKFIELD-RD,-Grand-Island_rb/ Upped the price $300k in the 9 months they owned it.
  6. I believe he meant that statement as a hypothetical. It hasn't actually been said, but would be reassuring to all of those paying attention if someone could make that statement.
  7. The importance of a hyphen is emphasized by the extreme dread that washed over me when I opened my email. A big difference between "resigned" and "re-signed"
  8. I used to park in the Stadium lot - but that has become a mess since the crowds have gotten larger. The Alumni B lot next to South Lake is good if you can get there early enough before it fills up. Lately, I've just been going to the Jacobs lots and trying to park in the last row or two. A little bit of a walk, but I've never had to circle for spots and am out onto Flint with no real wait at the end of the game.The Baird and Slee lots are where everyone tries to get into, and are always a mess. Tomorrow may be a bit more interesting with the 6pm start, as the students will still be in the lots from classes.
  9. The women's team currently sits as the 3rd seed, with one game to go. Should the 3 seed hold, they'll tip off around 7-730 on Wednesday against the winner of the 6/11 game. The semi on that side of the bracket then is at 1:30 on Friday, and the Championship is on 11 on Saturday. Since CMU won last night they can't overtake them for first, but can end up anywhere between the 2 and the 4 seed.
  10. The #1 seed plays the early set of games to afford them the most rest leading into the championship game. UB will play at Noon on Thursday against the winner of the 8/9 seed game (as of today - NIU/Miami). The winner advances to play the winner of the 5/12 vs. 4 seed (as of today - CMU/WMU vs. Kent) at 630 on Friday. Championship is at 730 Saturday.
  11. To be fair - a 66-62 game with 2:58 is naturally going to spur more crowd interaction than when the team is up 40+ points. Close games will bring out the crowd noise and bring people to their feet. We've had a string of blowouts at home this year, so naturally people are going to sit back and watch the show if Buffalo is up late rather than when they are fighting it out until the end. In conference this year, our average margin of victory at home is 25 pts. I can't decry the lack of coordinated crowd enthusiasm too much based on that.
  12. Not pleasing everyone is one thing - playing some sort of slow jam R&B at every break is another. He's got an amazing talent for sucking all of the air out of the building after a UB run as the crowd gets on their feet and goes nuts by playing some slow low energy song. Crowd sits down. Arena gets quiet. He watches the video board and repeats the same three catch phrases. Rinse and repeat. It's the most effective application of a momentum breaking timeout I've seen in college basketball. Hoping this gets better when the students and pep band return, but that DJ table needs to be disassembled yesterday and control of break music turned back over to UB production.
  13. Side note- the "DJ" is terrible. Trying to pump up the audience with slow tempo R&B?.... Yeah, not working. Playing Happy may be cliche at this point, but it's a cliche for a reason.
  14. They're college students - not a bunch of old folks like us. 9 PM is when you start to think about going out. Noon is an early morning start.
  15. As we head towards Miami - I always like to take 2 minutes and remember perhaps the second greatest post game press conference in MAC history (with the first being the BGSU Dan Dackich wihtout socks gem). https://youtu.be/UnilJdwyPRs
  16. SU is offering $10 tickets to anyone with a high school or college ID for the game tonight. Not sure how many students we have on the board - but definitely the best deal on tickets. SU Student Ticket Offer
  17. UB finals don't end until Monday, 12/17, so the dorms are still open and hopefully a good contingent of students will still be around. Need them making as much noise as possible throughout. TrueBlue should be hyping this one!
  18. Went ahead and bought through StubHub - Sec 113, Row G for $22 ea plus fees. Looks like there a a bunch more seats in that area for similar pricing.
  19. Looking at ticket info now. The UB ticket office says they have tickets for sale for $30 ea in 313 (upper corner of the dome). I'm seeing a ton of tickets on StubHub in better spots. For those who are going - where are your seats?
  20. Before we get all high and mighty over the swearing by the student section, recall that during the first OU game after the 2005 MAC championship game, there were long stretches of chants of "F Ohio". I do recall Reggie taking the mic a few times before games encouraging the support, but discouraging the cursing and off-color heckling. And I'm not defending the cursing- I thought it was dumb back then when I was in the middle of the Student Section, and still think it is dumb, especially now that I have kids with me at most games.
