Source: Sizemore leaves UB Football program

  • Posted on April 7, 2010 at 4:04 pm

I’ve now heard from a couple of sources that UB fullback Nick Sizemore has left the program. I have been told that Sizemore left because of a series of different positional adjustments.

Sizemore was moved from Full Back to Tight End, and finally to center. The prospect of playing offensive line was enough to get the Sophomore to leave the program.

The Buffalo Bills announced Wednesday that they’ve signed free agent running back Walter Mendenhall to a contract.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mendenhall was an undrafted free agent a year ago who signed with Philadelphia after the draft.  He was waived by the Eagles in June and had two short stints with the Indianapolis Colts before getting cut before the season started.

He ran for 796 yards on 126 carries and just four games his senior year at Illinois Stat after transferring from Illinois.

Mendenhall joins Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch as the only running backs currently on the roster.

He’s the older brother of Rashard Mendenhall of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Expanded “Party in the Plaza” for all home playoff games

  • Posted on April 7, 2010 at 7:38 am

The Buffalo Sabres today announced they will be hosting a “Party in the Plaza” prior to the start of each home playoff game during the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs. This year’s parties will be bigger and better than ever — including the addition of a 40’ x 120’ tent that will guarantee each party happening rain or shine; and extended hours that will allow fans without tickets to stick around and watch the game on a big screen TV.

The pre-game festivities get underway two hours before the start of each game outside HSBC Arena, in the Plaza area located near Perry and Illinois St. Fans can enjoy live music, along with food and drink available for purchase throughout the night. But the party doesn’t stop when the game ends! There will be drinks available for purchase after the game, along with music and coverage of the Lexus Shootout post-game show on the big screen.
