Shuttleworth to Start for New England Revolution

  • Posted on May 12, 2010 at 4:14 pm

Former University at Buffalo men’s soccer goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth will make his professional debut for Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution. On Wednesday, May 12, the Revolution will face the New York Red Bulls in a U.S. Open play-in match at Red Bull Arena with the kickoff set for 8:00 pm.

In his three seasons with the Bulls, Shuttleworth (2006-08) finished his career in the top spot for career goals against average with a 0.80 GAA. After a successful career with the Bulls, the Tonawanda, NY native decided to forgo his senior season and sign with the Revolution.

A 2008 second-team All-MAC selection, Shuttleworth was selected to the All-Tournament squad in the 2007 season. Shuttleworth put together a stellar regular season in 2008 with a 0.64 goals against average in 18 matches while recording eight individual shutouts. He anchored a UB defense that posted seven straight shutouts and a streak of 680 consecutive scoreless minutes, which was the longest active streak in the nation when it was halted.

Bills fans hate Willis McGahee

  • Posted on May 12, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Buffalo Bills PollWe posted a poll a couple of days ago asking readers who is the most hated Buffalo Bills player over the past decade and listed five candidates to choose from.  Jason Peters, Marshawn Lynch, J.P. Losman and Trent Edwards were four of them.

Combine them all and they still don’t measure up to Willis McGahee.

Fans have spoken and your loathe for McGahee is as strong as ever.  With over 1,900 total votes casted, McGahee pulled a remarkable 55% majority of the vote.  Losman was a distant second at 19% while Peters garnered 16% of your vote.

Lynch, who I suspect would receive a much higher voting total if this poll is revisited in a couple of years, pulled eight percent of the vote while only two percent of you despise Edwards the most.

Brooks resigns to join Canisius coaching staff

  • Posted on May 12, 2010 at 6:00 am

St. Bonaventure women’s basketball head coach Jim Crowley has announced that assistant coach Jacey Brooks has resigned to accept a similar position at Canisius.

Brooks spent three years on the Bonnies staff including this past season as an assistant coach after serving as the director of basketball operations for her first two years. A search for her successor is underway.

“Jacey has given us three great years on the staff and we will certainly miss her,” said Crowley.  “We would have not achieved our recent success without her and wish her the best of luck in her new opportunity.”

Craig’s Corner: Brohm’s time is now

  • Posted on May 12, 2010 at 12:01 am

Craig Sutton Column Call me crazy…but Brian Brohm is the reason the Bills didn’t draft a quarterback until half the NFL teams were packing up their respective war rooms.

Yeah, I know, Brian Brohm? Isn’t that the same kid who looked lost last year in his only start against the Atlanta Falcons, tossing a pair of ugly interceptions with no touchdowns and a sub-50.0 QB Rating?

Say what you want, I think this was the right way to go.

At six-foot-three in height, by most accounts Brohm has the arm strength to deal with the weather. Some have compared him to a larger version of Drew Brees. What appealed most to me about him are his high scores in the Wonderlic, an intelligence test given to athletes, and that he is noted to have a solid command of his huddle without the drama.
