If ever there was a trap game this is it, let's just hope that Jeff Quinn and the Bulls don't fall into it.
This week you have a Miami team that is 118th in passing, 116th in rushing and 126th in scoring. They are 0-10 on the year, 0-6 in the MAC and are staring down the Buffalo Defense and the Ball State offense to finish off the year. Then in two weeks the Bulls play Bowling Green in "The Brawl for it All" at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Win lose or draw Buffalo will play Bowling Green for the division title on Black Friday. Both teams have but a single blemish on their conference records, Toledo.
So does UB spend the week looking at Bowling Green film?
Under Turner Gill the 2008 Bulls reportedly spent the final week of the regualr season preparing for Ball State not the Golden Flashes. During the game UB ran their vanilla schemes and played a lot of backups.
The result was a close loss to Kent and a team well prepared to take on the #12 Ball State Cardinals.
This season our "must win games" start Against Bowling Green and when this staff has an extra few days of preperation for games the results show.
So how would you feel if Buffalo spent this week preparing for an After Thanksgiving party at the Ralph?
