“Dick Slapped”

  • Posted on October 4, 2009 at 7:22 pm

Dick Jauron may have had the confidence of Ralph Wilson entering this critical divisional battle at Miami Sunday.   Upon the conclusion of this latest Buffalo divisional catastrophe, I don’t fathom how that’s still possible.

Even Wilson, who embraces change about as enthusiastically as Kanye West endorses Taylor Swift,  must be verging on seeing enough to make a change sooner than later.

If Jauron still has a job come Monday or Tuesday, the seat he occupies must be hotter than the resting place of Saddam Hussein.  A home loss next week to equally hapless Cleveland could be the final nail in the proverbial coffin of a coach who gives the appearance of a man already resting in one.

The Buffalo Bills put on a defining lifeless performance on the road against a divisional opponent in the previously winless Miami Dolphins. The 38-10 final tally should be far less disturbing than the effort put forth.  Both teams basically had their seasons on the line at just the quarter point of the year.  Miami showed up, Buffalo unmistakably did not.  In fact, one could reasonably argue the Bills quit in the fourth quarter for the second consecutive week.  If that doesn’t reflect on their nice-guy, little success head coach, I don’t know what does.

Portland Pirates Out of Sync in Opening Loss

  • Posted on October 4, 2009 at 4:42 pm

This was not the start the 2009-’10 version of the Portland Pirates were looking for as they gave up three powerplay goals enroute to a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Springfield Falcons on Saturday night.

The first goal of the game was a powerplay goal by Springfield as Chris Minard scored at 4:58 of the first period. With Brad Larsen in the box for holding, Ryan Potulny spotted Minard alone in front, where he snapped a shot between the legs of Pirates’ goalie Jhonas Enroth.

UB Rough Weekend vs Central Michigan Continues

  • Posted on October 4, 2009 at 4:35 pm

The University at Buffalo women’s soccer team fell to Central Michigan, 4-0, Sunday afternoon at the CMU Soccer Complex.

The undefeated Chippewas were a tough opponent for the Bulls, especially with Buffalo playing a man down, as a UB player was given a red card in the first minute of play. Central Michigan was awarded a penalty kick at the 1:25 mark of the game and took an early 1-0 lead off the shot. Central Michigan scored two more quick goals in the 15th minute of play and the 23rd minute of play to extend their lead. The Bulls were only able to get two shots in the first half, with Aubrey Stahl and Catie Hilliard each collecting a shot.

UB Bulls Fall to Central Michigan

  • Posted on October 4, 2009 at 4:26 pm

The University at Buffalo football team improved in so many areas Saturday in their battle with Mid-American Conference powerhouse Central Michigan, however, their struggles in the red zone ultimately spelled the difference in a narrow 20-13 loss before 18,092 fans at UB Stadium.

The Bulls, who had struggled in both running and stopping the run in previous games, got a career effort from first-time starter Ike Nduka, who had 172 yards on 22 carries, and the defense limited the Chippewas, who averaged over 160 yards per game coming in, to 144 yards on 35 carries. However, three times the Bulls had the ball inside the 20-yard line and came away with just six points.
