Carpenter Sets New School Record as Bulls Drop Close Meet To Ohio

  • Posted on October 31, 2009 at 7:10 pm

The University at Buffalo women’s swimming and diving team lost a close meet to the Ohio Bobcats on Saturday afternoon at Ohio’s Aquatic Center. The meet came down to the final relay with the Bulls just missing out on their first MAC win of the season, as they fell to the Bobcats 154-146. Senior diver Meili Carpenter swept the diving events for the second day in a row, setting an Ohio pool record while breaking her own UB record in the three-meter event.

The Bulls took an early lead with a first-place finish in the 400 medley relay as the foursome of Jessica Ballard, Brynn Marecki, Sam Palma and Caroline Simmons swam to an impressive time of 3:52.60. The next Buffalo win came from Marecki in the 100 breaststroke as she touched out the Ohio competition with a time of 1:06.17. Marecki also placed first in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:23.43. Freshmen duo Logan Mason and Dani Adank took a 1-2 finish in the 200 butterfly, finishing in times of 2:08.50 and 2:10.32, respectively. Simmons also picked up a first-place win for the Bulls, winning the 100 freestyle in a time of 52.36

Ryan Miller Looking like Team USA’s Goalie (Part 1)

  • Posted on October 31, 2009 at 11:05 am

The Buffalo Sabres’ Ryan Miller is off to a blistering start, topping the NHL with a 944 save % and 1.65 GAA in his first nine starts. His dominance during the first month of play should definitely send a message to Team USA hockey about who their starting goalie should be.

Primary competition for a Team USA roster spot (and playing time) will come from the Boston Bruins’ Tim Thomas, last year’s Vezina trophy winner. “I’m just going to play with him, he’s a great goaltender and a fine Michigan boy, the fact that we have two goaltenders from Michigan is a good thing. He’s a great guy and we have some rapport. We {USA} have some great goalies coming through the ranks, maybe more depth than we used to,” Miller said during my recent conversation with him.

The Unemployed Chef: Chili con Carne

  • Posted on October 31, 2009 at 9:00 am

Finally, you can keep your food down. Kicking ass the past 2 weeks, the Bills are now at 3-4. Hopefully, the urge to vomit up tailgating delicacies such as your New England Clam Chowdaaah or Meatball Sub has somewhat subsided. (Unless, of course, you completely anihilated these recipes. But my recipes are totally easy, so that would mean you suck at life.)

Let’s see if we can establish a pattern here. This week, as the Bills take on the Texans, I’ll be downing some delicious Chili con Carne. I guess we can tie it into a Texas theme, but honestly, chili and football go together like… umm… beer and football? Actually, I’m not quite sure anything goes together as harmoniously as beer and football, but since beer goes with pretty much everything-the simile stays.

I have to leave out some of this recipe’s “instructional” photos, for aesthetic reasons. I’ve come to the realization that chili looks remarkably like diarreah. But at least it doesn’t look as gross as this:

Bills’ remain banged up heading into Week 8

  • Posted on October 31, 2009 at 8:00 am

The Buffalo Bills have released their Week 8 injury report, and as usual with this team, it’s mostly bad news.

Six players have been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans.  Quarterback Trent Edwards (head), fullback Corey McIntyre (knee), tight end Shawn Nelson (migraines), tackle Jonathan Scott (ankle), defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee) and safety Donte Whitner (ankle) will not dress.  In addition, safety Bryan Scott - who hasn’t played in a month with a high ankle sprain, but who did practice on a limited basis all week - is listed as doubtful.

Williams will miss his first start since being drafted by the Bills in the fifth round of the 2006 Draft.  Whitner and Scott, the team’s opening-day duo at safety, will (probably, in the case of Scott) miss their fourth and fifth straight games, respectively.  Spencer Johnson starts for Williams.  Jairus Byrd and George Wilson - who have combined for six interceptions over the past two weeks - will continue to get the call at safety.
