The Bulls were able to use the Buffalo Bills Field House for one day to escape the cold, but for the next 14 practices UB will be back at their home stadium looking continue and complete another successful spring camp.

Practices got underway on Wednesday without some familiar faces such as Khalil Mack, Branden Oliver, and Alex Netuz, all key players who are now graduated and on to bigger things.  There will be other players such as Adam Redden and Anthone Taylor who look to fill some holes.

Starting quarterback sat out Wednesday and is officially ruled out for all of spring ball as he is still recovering from offseason hip surgery.  The junior suffered the injury during preseason camp last year and played the entire 2013 season with torn labrum and a bone impingement in his right hip.

It's still early to take anything significant from these practices, but at least football is back... for now.
