Paul Peck Breaks Down Tomorrows Game :

Paul Peck’s Bull Session: Ohio State - Buffalo Athletics
Speaking of talent, we'll see plenty of it Saturday. Ohio State may have the most in the country. Based on that, the Bulls will get a very good gauge of where they stand. So will all those NFL scouts.

Boomer Brock may not be on the field this weekend, thats a huge hit for the UB running game. Brock was very good at taking car e the first guy trying to fill the holes that Oliver runs through.

Injury to Brock may keep UB’s Oliver from lowering the boom - Sports - The Buffalo News
But football can be an unforgiving game, devoid of compassion, unwilling to grant special treatment to those who have "paid their dues." Brock was helped off the practice field Wednesday and placed on the training table. One leg was elevated, the knee packed in ice. And Brock lay with his fists covering his eyes, unmoving, even as teammates came over to wish him the best. He left on crutches. Jeff Quinn is calling Brock "day to day," the head coach’s catchall for any injury that’s not irrefutably season-ending. But given Brock’s pained facial expressions and inconsolable state, it appears he’ll miss Saturday’s season opener at Ohio State, with further examination needed to determine when he might return.
