There are some issues that don’t need to be mentioned over and over and for Jeff Quinn, his defense’s inability to create turnovers falls in that category. The University at Buffalo has forced just one turnover through four games this season, which ranks 119th nationally, and places the Bulls in a class with the Oklahoma Sooners, who have also come up with only one. Now fa…

The Niagara men’s hockey team finished an overtime goal from the championship game last year and that left a young group wanting more. The Purple Eagles took some lumps with a tough first semester schedule, but came back with a strong second half, going 12-3-2 to close out the regular season with a 17-11-9 mark. They won their first-round Atlantic Hockey playoff series ove…

The unranked Bengals defeated the three-time defending national champion Warhawks from Wisconsin-Whitewater, 7-6. Buffalo State broke the host's 46-game win streak. But what does that win actually mean? The rest of the season will determine whether that win was a one-…

Star runner Branden Oliver missed the second half with a leg injury. The passing game was all or nothing - usually nothing. And the Kent State defense lived up to its reputation as a hard-hitting, turnover-producing force.

One game does not make a season but it certainly can set the course for a season. A victory over visiting Kent State tonight puts UB on target for all it hopes to accomplish this year. A loss and its stated goals of winning the MAC or becoming bowl eligible begin to sound hollow. There's no overstating the importance of this game to UB's master plan. The Bulls will face, …

But not everyone realizes that …

The University at Buffalo thought it was set at the long-snapper position with Tim Krantz returning to handle the task. That all changed about a week ago, when Krantz informed Bulls coach Jeff Quinn he was leaving the team. His replacement? Receiver Marcus McGill, a true freshman from Rochester who goes 6-foot-1, 210 pounds. “We knew he snapped,” Quinn said of McGill at Tu…

But there were plenty of bright spots that can serve as confidence builders for the Golden Griffins.Sunday afternoon, the Griffs earned a 2-2 tie with the Golden Knights of ECAC Hockey at the Buffalo State Ice Arena; the teams tied, 3-3,…
