11/22/15 12:25am | By Jordan Grossman

The football team (5-6, 3-4 Mid-American Conference) is still a win away from bowl eligibility after a 41-21 loss to Akron (6-5, 4-3 MAC) at InfoCision Stadium – Summa Field Saturday. Buffalo will now need a win over Massachusetts (2-9, 1-6) in its season finale at UB Stadium on Friday for any chance at the program’s third bowl game since returning to Division I in 1999.

Here’s how The Spectrum graded the Bulls’ performance Saturday.

Danny White brought quick success, but future is questionable

11/20/15 12:05am | By Tom Dinki

A Mid-Major like UB needs to think long-term. Nothing is a quick fix. You have to slowly inch your way up the college athletics landscape. You don’t, as White always liked to say, build “America’s next big-time college athletics brand” in three years.

White could move up a conference and get a larger budget to play with in three years. UB cannot.

Athletic Director Danny White is one of three finalists for the AD opening at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and will interview for the job Monday in Chicago, according to a report from the Orlando Sentinel.

The report said UCF President John Hitt will also interview DeWayne Peevy, Kentucky deputy director of athletics.

White signed a five-year contract extension with UB last fall in order to show “commitment to the Buffalo community and this university,” he told The Spectrum at that time. White was the highest paid athletic director in the Mid-American Conference in the 2013-14 fiscal year with a pay of $301,625, according to USA Today.
