After bumpy beginning, Nick Forrester key component of UB men’s soccer defense

10/11/15 2:46pm | By QUENTIN HAYNES

For sophomore defender Nick Forrester, the first month of his tenure at UB was nothing short of constant change. The New Zealand native who had transferred from Butler University was adjusting to a new school and playing with a new cast of teammates. But now Forrester, who was touted as one of the best new players on the 2015 squad, has finally adjusted and is one of more important members of the Bulls.

Akron defeats UB men’s soccer 2-1

10/09/15 11:18pm | By QUENTIN HAYNES

Based on the previous 89 minutes and 55 seconds, you couldn’t blame him. The men’s soccer team had played tough with the No. 8 team in the nation with stellar defensive play and an early goal in the first half, but it was still on its way to a defeat and 0-1 to start to Mid-American Conference play.

UB men’s soccer enters MAC play peaking at right time

10/09/15 3:01am | By QUENTIN HAYNES

The Bulls will start MAC play hosting the No. 8 team in the country, Akron (8-2-1), on Friday at UB Stadium. Buffalo was in position to make the MAC Tournament last season after 1-0-2 start to conference play, but finished the season with two losses in which it was outscored 7-0. In Year Three of the Riddle era, Buffalo may finally be ready to take a step forward as a program.


UB men's basketball has no reason to panic about losing Hurley, Evans and Moss

10/08/15 7:47pm | By Jordan Grossman

The 2014-15 men’s basketball team entered the season without its top three players from the year before. The team wasn’t big. They didn’t have elusive scorers. They were bounced in the first round of the 2014 Mid-American Conference Tournament after some projected them to win it all.

But alas, all the naysayers were silenced when the Bulls went on the shock the conference and win the MAC.

Why can’t that happen again?

UB women’s soccer looking to freshmen for help with title run

Of the eight freshmen Bulls, five have played in at least 11 games so far this season and two of the team’s top-3 scorers are first-year players. After losing integral parts of last year’s team like Katie Roberts, Courtney Mann and Sophie Therien to graduation, the Bulls are hoping are slowly fill the void with some help from underclassmen.


Bob McAdoo is the forgotten superstar in the city of Buffalo

10/06/15 10:51pm | By QUENTIN HAYNES

We’ll always remember the stars. In terms of Buffalo sports lore, you can’t have a conversation and not bring up former Bills like Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas and Bruce Smith. Same goes for the Sabres’ Dominik Hasek, Phil Housley and Ryan Miller.

But there’s one player that is often overlooked in the history of Buffalo: Former Buffalo Braves forward Bob McAdoo.


The best of the UB Bulls

10/06/15 10:51pm | By Jordan Grossman

With most of Buffalo’s Division-I sports in the thick of Mid-American Conference play, each team is still in contention for their respective conference titles.

Of course, it’s a whole team effort, including the coaching staff, to get a team in position to compete for a championship. But each squad has standout performers that have helped take it to the next level.

Catching up with some of best recent UB Bulls

They were some of the most prolific players to ever wear the blue and white.

They broke records, won championship and brought some prominence to Mid-Major program over the course of their careers. But what happens to these players after they walk for graduation?

The Spectrum caught up with a few recent Bulls graduates from the past few years.

The Bulls completed their first official practice of the 2015-16 season Friday in Alumni Arena. Buffalo is the reigning MAC champion and is coming off its first NCAA Tournament appearance, but have a host of new faces after the departure of former head coach Bobby Hurley and several key players. The Bulls have eight new faces with a mix of freshmen and transfers.

UB quarterback Tony Daniel relies on family, hometown and teammates to cope with father's death

The everyday rigors of a Division-I college football player – even for a backup like Daniel – had come to an end in December of 2014. There were no more worries, no more stresses. Life was finally carefree again. Or so Daniel thought. On Nov. 30, 2014, Daniel received a frantic phone call from his sister Carley telling him their father Jack had suffered a heart attack earlier in the day and was rushed to the hospital.


UB Bulls need to start winning against good MAC teams

10/03/15 11:52pm | By Tom Dinki

It’s a new era under new head coach Lance Leipold and different circumstances but the Bulls (2-3, 0-1 MAC) came up short against Bowling Green again on Saturday, this time with a 28-22 loss at UB Stadium for homecoming. And again Buffalo showed it’s not quite ready to beat the best of the MAC.

UB Bulls face Bowling Green: Who has the edge?

10/01/15 8:53pm | By Jordan Grossman

The Falcons seem to always have the edge over the Bulls, whether it was last season’s heartbreaking 36-35 Buffalo loss or two years ago when they defeated the Bulls in what was an essentially a MAC East Championship game.

Here’s who The Spectrum thinks has the edge at every position.

It’s a long way to the top for UB Bulls

10/01/15 11:59am | By Jordan Grossman

Saturday’s matchup against Bowling Green (2-2) will be the team’s biggest test to date and it may be its biggest all season. The Falcons have appeared in the MAC Championship game the past two years, including a victory in 2013. They defeated perhaps the most talented team in Buffalo program history in what was essentially a MAC East Championship game to get it by the way.
