2012: Best of Bull Run #16: The Mack-Lee Incident

2012 was a great year for UB and a great year for UB Bull Run. 2012: Best of Bull Run Looks back at the 20 top stories covered by Bull Run during 2012.

One of the most infamous moments of 2012, the Khalil Mack-Fred Lee incident which led to the injury to Wide Receiver Fred Lee and the suspension of Linebacker Khalil Mack. The incident prevented Mack, possibly the best defender in school history, from showcasing his skill on a national stage. Mack's family also missed the opportunity to see him play close to home, 9 hours north of his Fort Pierce, Florida hometown.

Probably more damaging to UB's season, Fred Lee, who was expected to rise as the #2 wide receiver in 2012, missed 6 games and was not in game shape until the final 4 games of the year. In his first 20 games as a Bull, Lee had 31 receptions for 250 yards and 2 touchdowns. In the final 4 games of this year, Lee exploded for 14 receptions for 232 yards and a touchdown. Buffalo was 3-1 in those 4 games.
