Incognito deals with harsh words from Mitchell

  • Posted on December 17, 2009 at 4:16 pm

So as we all know by now, guard Richie Incognito is a Buffalo Bill.  And most of you already are aware that injured Bills linebacker Kawika Mitchell was not a fan of the of the signing, or Incognito as a person.

In fact you’d be hard pressed to find an instance in recent years where a player so openly chastised the acquisition of a new teammate for the world to see.  Had this been the New England Patriots, it would not only lead off on Sports Center, they’d probably be in the process of filming a documentary about it.

Speaking of ESPN, our favorite AFC East blogger Tim Graham files a report that Incognito accepts Mitchell’s criticism.

This is what Incognito told Graham.

Former Notre Dame Assistant to Interview for UB Coaching Job

  • Posted on December 17, 2009 at 4:11 pm

Over the next several days, Buffalo Sports Daily/Bull Run blogger Tim Riordan is running a series on potential head coaching replacements for Turner Gill at UB.  Today features Corwin Brown, former Notre Dame assistant. New head coach Brian Kelly relieved him of duties this week.)

So far everyone mention has been, at least in their coaching career, an offensive mind. Typically that’s how things go in the MAC whoever has the ball last wins a shootout. Recently teams like Temple and NIU have started to break that mold and build around the defense, their success of late shows there is room, even in the Mid American Conference, for smash mouth football.

Flynn takes step back following career night

  • Posted on December 17, 2009 at 3:16 pm

Last night Jonny Flynn and the Minnesota Timberwolves took on the Los Angeles Clippers at home in the Target Center. The first quarter of the game went really well, the Wolves matched the Clippers point for point and were even up by two points at the buzzer. But things went downhill in a hurry over the final three frames.  The Clippers stepped their game up and the Wolves never seemed to match their intensity.

Flynn was held to just  9 points on 3 for 12 shooting, one of his worst nights since his NBA rookie seasons started. With 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 turnovers Flynn really did nothing noteworthy for the night.

Wolves veteran and Flynn’s mentor Kevin Love couldn’t even redeem the team with his double-double. Timberwolves Head Coach Kurt Rambis told a reporter after the game, “This was a big step backwards in my mind. Both effort-wise and defensive-wise, we took a step backwards.”

Newest Bufalo Bill: The Richie Incognito File

  • Posted on December 17, 2009 at 9:07 am

As you’re all probably aware, the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday evening claimed controversial guard Richie Incognito off of waivers from the Rams. A third-round pick of St. Louis in 2005, Incognito was waived earlier this week after drawing two blatant personal fouls in a loss at Tennessee that culminated in his getting into a verbal spat with Rams rookie head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

Now, Incognito joins a battered Bills offensive line with a chance at playing right away. The Bills currently have one reserve interior linemen - Christian Gaddis - and to say that Incognito outstrips Gaddis in the talent department is an understatement.

We know how Bills linebacker Kawika Mitchell feels about the move. He had something of a stuff-foot-into-mouth moment on Wednesday night, saying he was disappointed by the move and referring to Incognito as a “bum,” among other things. How did others react to the move? Find out after the jump.

Sabres lose to Sens again.. and more on “foodgate”

  • Posted on December 17, 2009 at 8:48 am

Since everyone is all about comparing the Sabres of today to the Sabres of 05-06, I’ll just follow along. Just like during the regular season then, the Sabres just can’t beat the Senators in Ottawa.  The Sabres lost in Ottawa last night, 2-0.

Some thoughts.

♦ I think the biggest reason the Sabres have problems against the Senators is because the team doesn’t play well against an opponent that doesn’t rely on just one line. The Senators are kind of built like the Sabres, because they roll out four lines that consist of speed and grit. When you take Miller out of the equation, the Sabres play their best when their 3rd and 4th lines outplay the opponent’s second tier lines. The Senators latter lines match-up well against the Sabres, and when your top six forwards are as inconsistent as the Sabres are, you’re going to have problems. It’s not like playing the Capitols or Hawks, who have only one or two lines you have to deal with.

College Hoops: Griffs drop OT heartbreaker to Duquesne

  • Posted on December 17, 2009 at 8:29 am

In the second double overtime game of the day at the A.J. Palumbo Center, the Canisius College men’s basketball team lost 86-77 to Duquesne on Wednesday evening. Canisius falls to 4-5 on the season and has lost three straight games.

Senior Frank Turner led the Griffs with 23 points to go along with eight rebounds. Juniors Julius Coles and Greg Logins each had 15 points and nine rebounds while junior Tomas Vazquez-Simmons had seven points, nine rebounds and two blocks.

Duquesne (8-3) forced overtime as Canisius couldn’t hold onto a 67-63 lead, going 2-for-6 from the free-throw line in the final minute of regulation. B.J. Monteiro split two free throws and after two missed free throws from freshman Alshwan Hymes, Damian Saunders made a layup to make the score 67-66. After Logins split two free throws, Monteiro scored a layup with six seconds left to tie the game at 68-68. A desperation 3-pointer from Turner hit off the backboard at the buzzer.

Potential UB Coach: Get to know Joe Moorhead

Over the next several days, Buffalo Sports Daily/Bull Run blogger Tim Riordan is running a series on potential head coaching replacements for Turner Gill at UB.  Today features Joe Moorhead, UConn offensive coordinator.

If this man looks familiar to you it’s probably because he was part of the J.D. Brookhart experiment at Akron from 2004 to 2008. Joe Moorhead Generally produces very respectable offences something you need to survive in the MAC.
