~ Congrats to the Bulls ~

Photobucket
The University of Buffalo traveled to Michigan to play Ball State, who was ranked #12 in the nation, for the MAC Championship. The Bulls, unranked themselves, were surely the underdog. It was the first time in the schools history they played for the championship. I was thrilled it was on ESPN last night and actually watched a good chunk of it. The boys were on a mission and the defense stood tall causing 4 turnovers. The final score, Buffalo 42- Ball St 24. Congrats boys on a job well done!!
The Bulls have also been invited to a bowl game for only the second time in 94 years of college football. It will be the first time they accept. Back in 1958 the Bulls were invited to play in the Tangerine Bowl against Florida State but turned down the invitation when it was made known that two of the Bulls players who were African-American would not be allowed to compete.
Whuuu huuuu lets go Bulls! At least we have something to look forward to here. The Bills are sucking wind and will no doubt miss the playoffs after a tremendous start of 4-0. The Sabres? Oh my boys.. not sure what the hell is happening there but it's painful to watch. No worries I'm watching 'em but it is painful.

Congrats to the Bulls!
I agree with you, The Sabres are sad to watch. But it isn't even mid season yet...there is still time.

I have paid attention to Buffalo, because its coach Turner Gill was THE quarterback of one of the best offensive football teams I have watched ... the 1983 Nebraska Cornhuskers!!

My Mountaineers aren't doing spectacular this year either.

They lost out on the chance for a BCS bowl last week. I'm hoping they can pull out a win agains South Florida tonight.

I guess congratulations are in order for the Bulls.

I like the fact that they turned down the Tangerine Bowl in the 50's! What stupid people have existed and still do. Go Bulls! *M*

I hear the Bulls have invited the 1958 team to come to the Bowl game with them so they get their chance to attend 40 years later.
Very classy.
