OK, I have been converted. As you all know when you watch Last Bull In, I ranked the 2008 defense ahead of this years team. I was wrong. Very wrong (except I would love to have 08 secondary on this team!) That Baylor game skewed my thoughts. This team and especially the defensive lineman and linebackers are a terror to play against. Mack is all-world but this whole defense is on fire. These Buffalo Bulls are Tettleton's kryptonite.
Buffalo Sports team received two favorable calls. The first one was when San Jose scored in OT to beat the Sabres but was not caught by the referees and not ruled a goal. That blunder gave Buffalo a second chance and a victory in a shoot out.
Second was obviously the safety. Let me make this as crystal clear as possible. Yes, absolutely terrible call. Ohio, take the two points back. UB would have still crushed Ohio. Still would have been an intentional grounding at Ohio's 4 yard line. Punt could have been blocked or UB would have scored with a short field (like they did) Oliver (who started running much later than I expected) was too much to handle and the Ohio O Line will remember this whopping for a very long time.
Good for us that our picks were terrible. Us Bruwpegers are loyal Bulls Fans and have not had many experiences like that game last night. I understand picking with guarded optimism but with loyalty. In fact, 32 of the 35 picks placed on the Bulls.
The Bruwpeg summary, Two pickers lead the pack this week, kdahlberg93 and meigs1414, with a whopping total of 4. Here are their picks.
