MAC football capsules: Buffalo, Ball State look to be favorites | cleveland.com
Injuries decimated UB in 2012 as TB Branden Oliver and WR Alex Neutz are Top 3 MAC talents at their positions when healthy, and LB Khalil Mack is the best player in the league, period. Put it all together and this team rolls. Key game: Nov. 5 vs. OU -- This game begins a four-game stretch where UB can either put a title away, or make up a lot of ground with victories as Toledo, Miami and Bowling Green follow.

If we get there we will need Khalil Mack in a big way.

Ohio State-Buffalo 2013: Taking a closer look at Khalil Mack - Land-Grant Holy Land
Khalil Mack is one of the best linebackers in the country you might not have ever heard of. Standing at 6-3, 245 pounds, Mack is an athletic freak off the edge and one of the best pure pass rushers that the Buckeyes will have to deal with this season. In his first three seasons at Buffalo, Mack has recorded 229 tackles, 18 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and 14 pass break ups.

The Spectrum is speeding up their coverage now that the summer break is over.

It seems that a combination of talent and swagger have set the Bulls up for unprecedented success. White has taken the first step in waking the sleeping dragon.

Finally Basketball is coming, we will start working hoops into the rotation but first..

Top 10: New hires positioned for success - Men's College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN
Bobby Hurley (Buffalo): The former Duke star left his brother Danny’s staff at Rhode Island to take his first head-coaching job. Buffalo finished 7-9 in the MAC and 14-20 overall last season. But six of the Bulls’ top seven scorers from last season are back. And with Javon McCrea (18.0 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 2.6 BPG) and Will Regan (11.1 PPG, 4.4 RPG) inside, Hurley’s squad will boast one of the league’s top frontcourts. Last year wasn’t a great one for the program, but Hurley has the building blocks to make immediate improvements.
