"I want to thank Buffalo Head Coach Turner Gill and Director of Athletics Warde Manuel for the proactive manner in which they have addressed this matter." -- Dr. Jon SteinbrecherWest, like many UB offensive linemen, has been fighting injuries all season. He is just recovering from a broken hand and to lose him for one of our two remaining games is a bitter pill but after seeing the hit it's hard to argue with Gill or the MAC that discipline had to be applied. While I don't think west was out to hurt anybody he clearly lost his head after the Maynard interception.
