Does God Hate the Buffalo Bills?

  • Posted on November 29, 2009 at 11:18 am

As the Buffalo Bills prepare to take on the Miami Dolphins today at Ralph Wilson Stadium, my mind goes back to a time when this rivalry reached a fevered pitch that finally exploded on a beautiful summer day in 1980.

Most Buffalo Bills fans will tell you that the one team they love to beat is the Miami Dolphins. Some will tell you that they don’t care if the Bills lose all their games just as long as they “squish the fish”.  So why is there such a frenzy over this one team in the NFL? For those fans that are too young to remember, here’s a little refresher course.

  • Posted on November 29, 2009 at 11:14 am

Canisius College junior guard Julius Coles scored a career-high 27 points, while teammates Greg Logins and Frank Turner added 14 and 13 points, respectively as the Golden Griffins defeated Howard 70-54 in the Koessler Athletic Center Saturday afternoon. Canisius has now won three-straight and improves to 3-1 with the win, while the Bison slipped to 0-7 with the loss.

Coles, who matched his career-high with 26 points in Tuesday’s win at Buffalo, scored his game-high 27 points after he went 9-for-17 from the field, 3-for-7 from 3-point range and 6-for-8 from the foul line. He also added five rebounds, an assist and a block to his final stat line, as the Blue and Gold opened the home schedule with a win for the first time since the 2002-03 campaign. Logins added a team-high eight rebounds in the victory for the Griffs, while Turner, who reached double figures in the scoring column for the 23rd-straight game, was credited with a game-high seven assists to go with five steals.

The Mississauga, Ontario product also grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds and finished 11-of-13 from the field for his second consecutive double-double.

Sabres Dominate Third To Beat Canes 5-1

  • Posted on November 29, 2009 at 10:45 am

It was like the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes played a doubleheader tonight at HSBC Arena. The first two periods were heavily in favor of the Canes while the Sabres controlled the final 20 minutes. The difference in the game was simple…Ryan Miller is better than Michael Leighton.

It took the Sabres 40 minutes to get their legs despite the lift they should have gotten from beating the Flyers on Friday. Maybe it took them some time to realize they would be without Paul Gaustad, Patrick Kaleta and Craig Rivet. The Canes took advantage of the Sabres sloppy play and Matt Cullen scored the first goal to give them a 1-0 lead. Tyler Myers made a terrible decision on a dump pass and Cullen raced in on Miller all alone. It was the only blemish for Miller tonight but Cullen made a nice move to beat him.
