UB Set for Homecoming vs Gardner-Webb

  • Posted on October 9, 2009 at 6:35 pm

The Buffalo Bulls will host Gardner-Webb in a homecoming showdown on Saturday afternoon at UB Stadium. This is the first meeting between the two schools.

“They are a good football team,” said head coach Turner Gill, “They are 3-1 on the season, and know how to win ball games.”

The Bulls (1-4, 0-2 MAC) are coming off a hard-fought 20-13 loss to MAC powerhouse Central Michigan. Buffalo had three chances to score in the fourth quarter, but were unable to capitalize.

The Browns Perspective

  • Posted on October 9, 2009 at 2:21 pm

Discovering a silver lining in the Buffalo Bills 2009 season thus far is about as effortless as convincing the American public George W. Bush was the most popular president since JFK. The Bills were within a play of pulling a monumental opening night upset at New England and handled an atrocious Tampa Bay at home the following week. With this year’s campaign seemingly on the hot trail the Bills promptly went out and laid consecutive eggs against New Orleans and Miami.

Now the Bills sit at 1-3 and going nowhere faster than (metaphor). The team now looks utterly lifeless and their head coach’s approval rating has plunged further than any Dow Jones stock ever could.

Sabres Hold Lead, Win First Game of Season

  • Posted on October 9, 2009 at 2:20 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, that is why Mike Grier is a great addition to the Buffalo Sabres.

With under a minute left in the game and Buffalo up by a goal, Grier deflected two attempts by the Coyotes to gain the offensive zone, taking crucial amounts of time off the clock and forcing the Phoenix forwards to regroup.  Ryan Miller held strong and withstood the Coyotes final push, making several huge saves to hold the lead for the home team.  The Sabres doubled their offense from their last effort, putting two pucks past Coyotes goaltender Jason Labarbera, while keeping the defensive play that they established last Saturday against the Canadiens, again holding the opposition to one goal, a redirection by Matthew Lombardi.  Buffalo controlled the flow of play for almost the entire game, forcing Labarbera to make nearly forty saves.

Niagara Hockey: Taking Care of Business

  • Posted on October 9, 2009 at 2:20 pm

Perhaps Bachman-Turner Overdrive was onto something when they sang that life is about “Taking Care of Business.” Niagara women’s head coach Chris MacKenzie, along with men’s hockey assistant coaches Greg Gardner and Tim Madsen have been taking care of business on and off the ice, with a common purple and white thread.

Niagara has afforded the three men’s hockey alums plenty in life, whether it was the student-athlete experience, a world-class education or the relationships they have made since stepping foot on Monteagle Ridge.

Fantasy Friday: Bills face St. Jerome

  • Posted on October 9, 2009 at 9:05 am

So, which running back should you start this week as the Bills try to get something going against the Browns?

The answer: Jerome Harrison.

If Jamal Lewis is out again with a bad hamstring — or even if he suits up — Harrison is in line to get the most touches of any back on the field Sunday.
