That sounds about right. If he's to go in the first round, he's going to have to be absolutely dominant game after game in the MAAC, because if he has even an above-average stretch of games there'll be questions about his quality of competition.

Numbers wise, he has outstanding size (listed as 6-3, 248 by UB) and speed, which translate well to the NFL level.

Don't be so sure. The first overall pick came from Central Michigan after all, and Joe Flacco was a 1st rounder coming out of Delaware. If Mack plays well this year, has a good bowl game (assuming UB makes one), and does well in the combine/pre-draft stuff...

Hes a pass rusher, so if he can pull a sack per game, even hes average doing it, he will be gone by the second. Pass rushers with good size dont slide in the draft unless they're doing blow off stripers.

Thank god there's no great strip clubs in Buffalo. Here's to hoping he doesn't have his passport.

Ugh, UB what happened? A pretty good showing against Ohio state and they get crushed by Baylor today 70-13.

One must remember these early top-25 games don't really mean much for a MAC team

Their defense is slow and terrible, and Licata hurt his ankle early and the running back got hurt. Pretty simple.

Baylor's hurry up offense was a buzzsaw.

More likely: Ohio just isn't very good.

Their quarterback was hit on like every play. So much pressure from the defense.

UConn fired their head coach today thanks to the Bulls beatdown.

They seem to be building something, even better than what turner Gill built. Gill had a few great college players that really carried him, and not much behind them.

I can see a program being built right now at UB. Would be great to see the Alma Mater become a top MAC team every year and maybe 5 years down the road step up into a bigger conference.

It would be great to see the Alma Mater succeed as you mention. A little less so, though as the New York Bulls. Or maybe a lot less so.......

Bumping this thread. UB is killing Ohio (6-2) right now 30-3. The Bulls will be 7-2. Freaking UB is 7-2. Crazy. Their only 2 losses are to top 10 teams.

With seven wins coming against the following pauerhausses:


Ohio, Western Mich, uconn, eastern mich, umass, kent state, and stony brook.

Nothing too impressive; through you can only beat who you're scheduled to play. I know.

Very true, although they are beating those teams soundly. Only the Stony Brook one was close ironically.

True, but before they would play those teams and be around .500

No, with no NIU or Ball State on the regular season schedule, it's been fairly weak so far (BG will be tough). But on the positive side, as mentioned, they waxed all but one of those teams and got a coach axed (sure, not JUST because of them, but still...). Plus they pretty well controlled (the two horrible calls notwithstanding) an Ohio team that started the year with high MAC hopes, was playing good football, and had beaten very solid North Texas and Marshall teams earlier. And that Branden Oliver looks like a keeper.

On a side note, it was interesting to see two Buffalo teams benefit from bad officiating...on the same night!
