Bulls Back Home to Face Central Michigan

  • Posted on October 2, 2009 at 8:00 pm

The Bulls are set to play preseason MAC-favorite Central Michigan on Saturday afternoon at UB stadium. It will be the first of three straight home games for UB.

“We are excited and ready for the game,” said head coach Turner Gill. “We have another chance to play and get better as a team.”

The Bulls are 1-3 overall and 0-1 in conference play and are coming off a disappointing loss to Temple. UB’s five turnovers deemed too much to overcome as Temple capitalized and put the game out of reach.

“Ours guys showed great effort,” said Gill. “We played hard, no matter what happened.”

The Crimson Cup’s 106th campaign has already had its share of early surprises. Week Four on the schedule rings in the annual “Hall of Fame Weekend” as the best tries to distance themselves from the rest.

The Pat LaFontaine Interview

  • Posted on October 2, 2009 at 10:33 am

lafontaine_0038_1_largeSimply put, Pat LaFontaine is one of the greatest Sabres in franchise history. The organization took a huge turn for the better on October 25, 1991 when LaFontaine was dealt from the New York Islanders to Buffalo for a package that included Pierre Turgeon.

He had the greatest offensive season in team history in 1992-93, when he scored 53 goals to go with 93 assists for an astounding 148 points. He was a finalist that year for the Hart Trophy, given to the NHL’s MVP (Mario Lemieux won).

In the 1994–1995 season, he was awarded the Bill Masterton Trophy as the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey.

Fantasy Friday: The Beast is released

  • Posted on October 2, 2009 at 10:05 am

Marshawn Lynch is back, but will Beast Mode be back with him?

There are two things about Lynch in which you can be confident: He’s done everything he can to stay in shape during his layoff, and he’s hungrier than Jason Peters in a Burger King.

He’ll bring fresh legs and a nasty attitude to Miami. Hopefully he’ll energize the Bills’ offense after it packed it in last Sunday.

However, he’s still a risky fantasy play. The Fins have allowed the third-fewest rushing yards and just two touchdowns on the ground. They held Michael Turner to 65 yards in Week one.

Jonny Flynn is now an NBA player. Well, technically he’s been since early summer when he was drafted sixth overall by Minnesota, but now he has his first media day as well as a few NBA practices under his belt. His first week was a busy one, but thus far he’s handled himself commendably.

On media day, usually the attention is on the new rookies to come in and discuss how they’ve meshed with the guys on the team, and how they think they’ll fit into the team’s future. Flynn was interviewed by Jonah Ballow, from, and had quite a few things to say about his fit with this team.

An interview with Darryl Talley

  • Posted on October 2, 2009 at 8:05 am

When the annals of football history are someday written, the Buffalo Bills’ teams during a six-year period from 1988-93 will go down as one of the elite, if not most talked about teams of any era— ever.

The narcissists will recount one thing and one thing only; the four consecutive Super Bowl losses. Four straight years the Bills were on cusp of winning the biggest game of their collective lives, and four straight times they lost, caught bad breaks, choked, beat themselves, etc. However you want to write it is irrelevant. They’ll record it whatever way they prefer, and they’ll never tell the whole story. Just the sour endings.

Hilbert College Remains Winless in Soccer

  • Posted on October 2, 2009 at 7:52 am

The Hawks played Wells College in a non-conference game on Thursday afternoon. The game resulted in a heartbreaking 1-2 in a double overtime loss as the Express went on to defeat Hilbert dropping the Hawks overall record to 0-10-1 on the season.

This is the third time this season the Hawks have played a double over time match; this is also the second double over time match resulting in a loss.

Wells jumped out to an early 1-0 lead just 11 minutes into the opening period. Forward Blasdimil Gomez scored off a rebound from a Scott Walker (Rochester, NY/ Bishop Kearney) save.
