I wonder how good Oregon offense shifts to the NFL?
Barkley was solid today in a game where he had to be. His D just couldn't make a stop.
A QB who somewhat caught my eye today was Bo Wallace against UGA. Not flashy numbers(but game got away from Ole miss) but hers a bigger dude, can run, scramble and keep plays alive with his feet and set and throw. He's got a strong arm. Not sure what year he is though.
If only there was a way to magically make more hotels appear....Perhaps by building a state of the art one downtown with ice rinks? Or a brand spanking new billion dollar retractable roof waterfront stadium?
Combined, the Sabres, Hamister and Benderson projects could add 419 hotel rooms to the downtown inventory of 1,796 rooms, which represents 19.6 percent of the total 9,163 in Erie County, according to data by Smith Travel Research of Nashville.
This article explains the requirements to make a bid(not win a bid mind you) for the Super Bowl. At least 19,000 hotel rooms that require three- or four-night minimum stays, including rooms for both teams and NFL personnel.
Buffalo would need almost double the current capacity to even make a bid for the Super Bowl. What you suggest would barely make a dent in that requirement. So no, Buffalo is lightyears away from even qualifying to make a bid to host the Super Bowl. And even if they did, they'd have the cold weather stigma to overcome(not just for the game being outdoors) in winning said bid. A new convention center and/or stadium with a few ice rinks and hotel simply aren't enough. To say Buffalo hosting a Super Bowl someday is a pipedream would be an insult to pipedreams.
Cities like Miami and San Diego are even being left out of the bid winning process because of their aging stadiums. The competition to host the game is outrageous. Jacksonville's hosting of the game was considered a failure by most in the industry.
