UB Football: Bulls Take A Bite Out of Runnin’ Bulldogs

  • Posted on October 10, 2009 at 10:15 pm

The University at Buffalo football team dominated in all phases of the game in a 40-3 Homecoming day victory over Gardner-Webb before 15,812 fans. Buffalo rushed for 250 yards - led by Ike Nduka who had 131 yards on 24 carries – and threw for 258 yards, with senior flanker Brett Hamlin recording six receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown. The Bulls jumped to a 33-3 halftime lead and cruised in the second half to their third consecutive Homecoming Day win. Nduka became the first Bull in the Division I-A era to go for over 100 yards in his first two starts.

Sophomore quarterback Zach Maynard completed 16-of-20 passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns – including two of them to senior tight end Jesse Rack – in a highly-efficient performance.

The Unemployed Chef: Meatball Sub

  • Posted on October 10, 2009 at 6:45 pm

With the Bills 1-3, you might be too sick to your stomach to even think about food. Or maybe you, like me, eat to numb your feelings. I guess I can pride myself on helping you fill the void in your Sundays with good, fatty food.

Although, as week five approaches, we do have one thing going for us. The Browns suck. Yeah, so the Browns have won 9 out of their 14 games against the Bills. So what. At 0-4, and with Braylon Edwards gone, we definitely have a good shot. If their last 2 games against the Bills mean anything, it could be a close game. I don’t want your eyes to have to leave the screen for a second, nevermind have you running back and forth to the kitchen.

Bills need to get back to basics offensively

  • Posted on October 10, 2009 at 12:34 pm

After starting the season with two strong performances in New England and Tampa Bay, the offense of the Buffalo Bills has stunk in consecutive losses to New Orleans and Miami. Outscored 65-17 in those two losses, Buffalo’s offense has generated a meager 10 points and many more mistakes in playing the Bills out of two winnable games.

If there’s one team that could cure some of Buffalo’s ills offensively (if only for one game), it’s the Cleveland Browns. Buffalo’s Week 5 opponent currently possess the dubious honor of being the NFL’s worst defense, surrendering 403 yards per game in their 0-4 start. Granted, their opponents are a sparkling 14-2 early this season (they’ve played Minnesota, Denver, Baltimore and Cincinnati), but bad is bad no matter which way you look at it.

Sabres Need Adjustments to Improve Offense

  • Posted on October 10, 2009 at 12:33 pm

Count me in as one of the people that loved the way the Sabres played following the lockout. They had a high powered offense that lit up the scoreboard at a record pace. They were also winning games and made it to the conference finals two seasons in row.

Since that time the Sabres have missed the playoffs two consecutive seasons and the offensive has been inconsistent. Every once in awhile you see glimpses of the team that could score goals on command, but mostly they manage just one or two goals like they have the last two games-though they haven’t lost in regulation either yet.

Special teams worrisome as Pirates still search for their first win

  • Posted on October 10, 2009 at 12:21 pm

The Portland Pirates must feel like its groundhog day.

After losing by a 5-2 score while giving up three power play goals last weekend to the Springfield Falcons, the Pirates did exactly the same thing, giving up three more power play goals to the Albany River Rats, in a 5-2 loss, before a crowd of 2,162 at the Times Union Arena on Friday night.

In the early portion of the season, special teams has clearly been a problem for the Pirates giving up six goals on 11 attempts for opposing teams, while they are 0-for-12 with the man advantage.

  • Posted on October 10, 2009 at 11:54 am
