UB Bulls at Kent State Preview

By Steve

Coming off just their second lost of the season in dramatic fashion the University at Buffalo Bulls basketball team goes on the road again Friday vs old rival Kent State.

UB is favored by 9 points for the 6:30 pm tip. The game airs on CBS Sports Network.

Kent state (15-4 (4-2 in conference]) has won three straight at home including a ten point win over Northern Illinois just last week. Granted, this month they have a pair of 20+ losses in conference but this will still be no cake walk for the Bulls. Kent state has wins at Vanderbilt and Oregon State this season.

UB's net ranking currently sits at 23 while Kent State comes in at 134. Buffalo can't afford a two game slide but nothing can be taken for granted in conference play.

Since the AP Top 25 came out Monday and the ub bulls lost by 2 at N illinois:
# 19 iowa lost @ home v ranked team
# 21 NC St lost v ranked team
# 16 Auburn lost
# 22 Miss St lost by 21 @ uk
#14 Tx Tech lost by 13
# 20 Ole Miss lost by 21 @ bama
# 13 MD lost
#24 iowa st lost
# 10 Va Tch lost

So it would be surprising if Buffalo fell out of the top 25 with a win Friday.

What Position Should The Bills Target in the Draft

By Steve

What the hell position should the Bills target in the 2019 draft? They may need 45+ new players and are devoid of talent through out the roster. Go offensive line? WR? Tight end? Does it matter?

I took at the NFL AP All Pro team from 2016-2018. I looked up their draft positions and averaged out the position of each. Granted things are skewed. There are 5 offensive line positions and most of the WRs and TEs are repeats. But here is what I found:

The average all pro tight end drafted position was: 64
Kelce, Ertz, Kittle, Gronkowski, Olsen

The average all pro offensive lineman drafted position: 52
Bakhtiari, Brown, Armstead, Nelson, Bitonio, Kelce, Pouncey, Martin, Yanda, Schwartz, Ramcziek, Smith, Whitworth, Norwell, Saffold, Mack, Decastro, Johnson, Daryl Williams, Osemele, Conklin, Cannon.

The average all pro wide receiver drafted position: 66.
Hopkins, Thomas, Jones, Hill, Brown, Thielen, Evans, Beckham.

There was one UDFA o-line and WR. I threw them out.

If you take out Tyreek Hill because of his reason for falling to 165 WR would actually be 49 not 66.

UB Bulls Start Conference Play Friday

By Steve

The 20th ranked University at Buffalo Bulls start their conference play tomorrow at Eastern Michigan. The game tips off at 9pm and will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.

Eastern Michigan was picked to finish first in the West division of the MAC. They return ten players from last year and their top three scorers. This will be one of the tougher challenges left on their schedule.

True, their 6-7 record isn't good but three of those losses were at Duke, Kansas and TCU.

UB is -10.5, over/under is 142.5

Look for UB to continue to get national TV run if they keep compiling wins.

They have two home games next week, vs Toledo Tuesday and Miami OH next Saturday.
