Toxic fandom

As a sports fan, I love going to the games and watching my favorite teams play. No matter the sport, be it football, baseball, NASCAR, they are all great to watch in person.  But one of the worst parts of live games is being surrounded by obnoxious fans.

Letting her guard down

Head women’s basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack is used to recruiting her players.  But freshman point guard Jessika Schiffer was different. In Legette-Jack’s words, “Jessika recruited me.”


Kicking and screaming

After another loss that comes from missed field goals, fans are not happy.  The football team has been plagued with missed field goals, and something needs to change. 


March of the Bulls

We are almost three weeks away from the unofficial start of the UB Bulls basketball season (an exhibition against Daemen). And a quick glance at this season’s schedule –– posted earlier this month –– will tell you that Buffalo didn’t schedule any top-tier teams like it did last year and there aren’t a lot of tough teams on the schedule, either. Last year, if they hadn’t won the MAC, the Bulls were probably in as an at-large. This season, unless they run the table and win every game, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll have this opportunity again. It’s MAC or bust.
