Talking Bull: Man that felt nice..


It may not have been our first conference home win under coach Jeff Quinn but when Patrick Clarke's 47 yard field goal split the uprights as time expired is sure felt like beating Miami at home was a milestone for the Jeff Quinn Era. Might as well spend a bit basking in it.

Despite a few missed opportunities, which will happen with any freshman passer, those throws were on point. One sticks out in my mind. A touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Fred Lee, a 21-yard laser that was, quite honestly, the best throw I’ve seen all season from any Buffalo quarterback. It also came at a critical time, as he was locked in a duel in the second half with Miami quarterback Zac Dysert, whom, according to many, will be playing on Sundays in his future.

According to Licata, he felt comfortable, despite starting a game for the first time in two years.

He had already kicked a 49-yarder with the strong winds mostly at his back earlier in the game. Clarke also made good on his final kick as time expired, and the Bulls celebrated their first MAC win of 2012. "As soon as I kicked it, I knew it was good," Clarke said.
