NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Bruce Campbell

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 3:01 pm

Bruce CampbellBruce Campbell (OT)- Maryland

6’7, 310 lbs


Campbell has one of the most impressive combination of size and athleticism I’ve ever seen in all my years scouting draft prospects. With his ability to be as big as he is yet stay with some of the quickest guys in the country is simply incredible when compared to some of his offensive tackle counterparts.

In fact Campbell’s ability to mirror may be the best in this class and his recovery ability is also tops. He can get beat by being caught off balance but he has the size and athleticism to recover and still make the block. One of the ways Campbell is able to do this is with his footwork.  It’s technically sound and he uses it very well to keep his feet chopping and maintaining his blocks.

The MAC and the RPI

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 3:00 pm

The regular season is coming to a close and there are a lot of teams across the country still fighting for an at large bid to the NCAA tournament. Some of these teams are mid-majors, some are from power conferences, and some from conferences in between the two (A-10, the Valley, and Mountain West).

Sadly, there are no teams for the MAC that will make the NCAA tournament without winning it all in Cleveland, but you can’t completely criticize this conference.

Fans who want the best thing possible for UB and the MAC often criticize because it only sends one team to the dance and really haven’t had a legit shot at sending two in at least five years. We want to always have 20 win years and to be annually in the hunt to make a splash when it actually counts. Then we holler and scream when our mediocrity does match up to schools who are able to come through some years, such as Cleveland State, Southern Illinois, George Mason, etc.

Do you believe in Millercles?

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Ryan MillerWow.

To think we still have about another week left of Olympic Hockey. America may not watch the NHL that much, but they sure will get into a great hockey game. When you have Ryan Miller being the number one trending topic on Twitter, you know that you have something going. Even Alysaa Milano twittered about Ryan Miller making her want to be a Sabres fan. Ryan, six words to Alyssa: My people will call your people (That’s showbiz talk)-

As a hockey fan, I definitely needed that. I’ll be honest, hockey and myself have kind of a love/ hate relationship. There’s just so many games I watch that can bore me to tears. However, having a game like this makes me want to stay up late and watch every single hockey game ever played on skates or roller blades.

Shot of the Year… So far

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 10:55 am

It’s one thing to hit a buzzer beater to lift your team at any time— but to extend your season in the playoffs?

That’s special.

Check out what Timon guard Mike Scarcello did yesterday in the Manhattan Cup playoffs against St. Joes. With 6.7 seconds left and his team down by three, Scarcello went the length of the court, got a pair of Marauders defenders in the air—and literally saved his team’s season.  Timon went on to win in overtime and the senior guard lives to play another game.

Check out the video clip; it’s what makes high school sports so special.

Stampede get blown out over the weekend

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 10:30 am

The Buffalo Stampede of the PBL traveled to Lawton-Fort Sill over the weekend and suffered a 139-80 beating at the hands of the Cavalry.  The points allowed and margin of victory were the most of any game in the league this year.

The Stampede (3-8) were out of the game by halftime when the Cavalry led 66-40.

Andy Robinson led Buffalo with 26 points while Robert Sharpe and Corey Herring each scored 12.

Rashad Woods led a Lawton-Fort Sill (8-2) balanced scoring attack with 25 points that saw all 10 active players on the roster get on the scoreboard.

Buffalo travels to Rochester for a game on February 27.  Their next home game is March 12 against Puerto Rico at Canisius College.

Miller’s makes USA’s ‘Road to Gold’ easier

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 5:10 am

Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller had a pretty easy go at it in his first two Olympic games for the United States.  Sunday, not so much.  After facing just 26 shots combined in wins against Switzerland and Norway, Miller was pelted with 45 of them Sunday night against Canada and many of them were golden chances.

It didn’t matter.

Miller stood out in one of the most telling nights of his career, breaking but refusing to break as the Americans pulled their biggest Olympic upset since defeating the Russians in 1980.  Brian Rafalski scored a pair of goals including the game winner, and Miller stopped 42 shots as the United States scored a stunning 5-3 victory over Canada.

Free Agent Files: Chad Pennington

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 4:38 am

Chad Pennington(We’re running a series profiling players that could fit into the Buffalo Bills’ plans leading up to the start of free agency on March 5.  Today we look at Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington)

Yeah, I know.  Chad Pennington is not a name most Buffalo Bills fans are not fond of hearing when it comes to potential starting quarterbacks in 2010.  Everyone craves Donovan McNabb, a few would like to see Michael Vick come to Orchard Park and many would be happy to hear the name Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen called out with the ninth overall pick on draft day.

BSD Briefs: February 22

  • Posted on February 22, 2010 at 4:37 am

Senior Josh Heidinger became the Canisius College hockey team’s all-time leading scorer as the Griffs celebrated Senior Day with a 5-3 victory against AIC on Sunday.

Heidinger registered four assists in his last regular-season home game to raise his career total to 123 points. He surpasses the program’s Division I record of 119, previously held by David Deeves. Heidinger’s four assists on the afternoon also ties the school’s single-game record.

“It was a good way to say good bye to our fans, families and friends,” Heidinger said. “It was really nice to go out with a win. We came in here four years ago and we are leaving with the program in a different place. We knew that we had to lay the ground work for the years to come. Our job was to point Canisius in the right direction and I think we did a great job. We have some great leaders and great players in this class.”
