This morning there will be a fre micro posts aimed at lifting your spirits. Before I get to the heavy lifting of a UB game thoughts and bigger issue posts that should be going up later in the day.

Now we all know when it comes to breaking fans hearts Buffalo Basketball can be just as cruel as UB football but since Javon McCrea and company did not spend yesterday letting Kent play them like a IAA team we will start with the hoops schedule.

First I have to give a shout out to the guys over at who, as always, spend a good portion of August combing through the sites of other basketball teams to find out who the Bulls play.

Buffalo is notoriously late in releasing their schedule and this year is no different. But thanks UBFan for doing the heavy lifting.

It's an impressive schedule.

Temple is coming in despite not being bound by their MAC football agreement. Hopefully this is the start of an annual, or semi annual home and home series against the Owls. I'd like a reason to keep hating them

Our trip to Florida State is part of the Coaches versus Cancer tournament.

The features 12 schools, with four host schools playing two games on campus and advancing to the Championship Rounds that will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The remainder of the field will participate in a round-robin series at one of the two sub-host sites.

I'm not sure how the whole thing works but basically Flora as a host gets to go to NY. Then UB will play Evansville, WIU, and Yale.

The trip to Washinton State (corrected, I origionally thought it was Wazzu) is likely a pay day game and Princeton is a return game from last season.

There are, of course the "Big Four" Games with two on the road and one at home.

Right now there are 28 known games, that's enough for a season but there is room for one or two more. I suspect Buff State will be brought in for a warmup game sometime after Christmas and I would not be amazed to see one other contest pop up before the conference opener against Miami on the 12th.

Edit: and I was proved right. UB will be at Tulsa on the second (good find RHB)

As it stands it's a great schedule. The Bulls have a few chances to play two caliber teams and maybe try to get that Big ranked upset they have been lacking all these years. There is also the Big4 games and some other mids that Give UB a chance to get some momentum going before MAC play begins.
