Canisius’ McGreal Sets School Record in 2-1 Defeat

  • Posted on November 6, 2009 at 5:53 pm

Senior Alan McGreal (Dublin, Ireland) broke the program’s record for most career goals but the Canisius College men’s soccer team could not overcome a 2-0 deficit and lost to the host Gaels on Friday afternoon, 2-1. The defeat drops the Griffs, who are in a battle for the final MAAC Championship berth, to 4-4-0 on the season in conference play, while the first-place Gaels improve to 7-1-0 against MAAC foes.

McGreal’s goal gives him 35 for his career, surpassing the previous record set by Tony Burke, who scored 34 goals from 1993 to 1996. McGreal already holds the school records with 99 career points and 29 career assists.
Canisius, who entered the day trailing Niagara for the fourth and final playoff berth by one point, can still clinch a spot in the MAAC Tournament on Sunday. The Griffs need to beat Fairfield and have either Niagara earn one point in its final two games (at Fairfield and at Iona) or have the Purple Eagles defeat or draw Fairfield later on Friday.

Drew Rosenhaus Not Fond of the Bills This Year

  • Posted on November 6, 2009 at 4:44 pm

Terrell Owens is having one of, it not the worst year of his career in Buffalo.  Surprisingly, he’s yet to verbally throw anyone in the organization under the bus.  Sure, he’s offered up excuses, mainly injuries, but he’s not attacked anyone via a tongue lashing.

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus is unwilling to be as kind.  In a story that was originally published today by Pro Football Talk, Rosenhaus took his shot at the coaching, quarterback play and especially the offensive line.

According to Gregg Rosenthal’s PFT report today, Rosenhaus on Joe Rose’s WQAM radio report this morning. He criticized the Bills’ coaching and shoddy quarterback play, but saved his biggest gripe for the offensive line.

Faceoffs Coincide With Sabres Strong Start

  • Posted on November 6, 2009 at 1:14 pm

The first six weeks of the season have been good to the Buffalo Sabres. After a 5-0 loss to the New York Islanders on Saturday, the club redeemed itself with a shutout of its own back at home. Now 9-2-1 on the season, the Sabres are leading the Northeast and have at least a game in hand over every other team in that division.

While they had a strong start last year as well before falling off, at this point in the season they had already started coming back to earth. As of November 5th, 2008, the Buffalo Sabres were down to 8-3-1 after a 6-0-1 start, and had already had a three-game losing streak in those first 12 games. If the Sabres can make it to the end of the month still leading the division, their fans might just start believing that they’re real, and not just another early season apparition.

UB: Stephanie Velez Named to Two All-MAC Teams

  • Posted on November 6, 2009 at 12:52 pm

The Mid-American Conference announced its 2009 women’s soccer All-MAC teams on Thursday night, with UB freshman Stephanie Velez being named to the All-MAC Second Team and the All-MAC Freshman team after a breakout rookie season. Velez was a key component of the Buffalo offense, leading the Bulls in goals, points and shots.

Velez finished the 2009 season with a team high 13 points, including six goals and one assist, and also led the Bulls with 29 shots, 13 of which were on goal. Velez was an intricate part of Buffalo’s MAC wins, scoring three out of the four Buffalo goals in those two games, including the game-winner over Northern Illinois. Velez ended the regular season ranked third in the MAC in goals, and first in points and goals for conference games only. Buffalo ended the 2009 season with a 3-15-1 record (2-8-1 MAC), falling just out of postseason contention.

Fantasy Friday: The All-”No Way” Teams

  • Posted on November 6, 2009 at 12:16 pm

Do you all know how difficult it is to write a Bills-oriented fantasy column?

With the possible exception of IDP sensation Jairus Byrd, there is not one Buffalo Bill who can be considered a safe fantasy starter.

So maybe it’s actually an easy task. Just don’t start your Bills. Start players against the Bills. That’s all you need to know for the rest of the season. Vacation time!

The Real Biggest Reason The Bills Don’t Win

  • Posted on November 6, 2009 at 1:22 am

Before I launch this long-winded mess; a disclaimer.  Reading this in its entirety for any Bills’ enthusiast may cause stomach pain, nausea, migraines, sleepless nights and/or increased depression.  It may even lead to losing bodily functions.

There’s a laundry list of explanations why the Buffalo Bills have been so futile this decade.  At the top of the hamper lies Dick Jauron.  He’s failed to produce a winning season in three tries and is well on his way to his fourth. His coaching style could best be deemed as unappealing, and his encounters with the media hardly make for good theater. Billboards have been erected via fan donations calling for his firing.

But he’s not the biggest reason the Bills are concluding their decade-long demise.
