About 2002


Drew Willy Wearing the UB Helmets from 2001-2005

In the first three years of UB's MAC tenure the Bulls had won just three games. They were win less in 1999, and then went 2-9. This was enough to cost Craig Cirbus his job and get Jim Hofher a chance to coach the Bulls.

Year one saw UB go 1-11 and winless in the MAC. This was year two, one in which UB fans were hoping to see progress.

Instead of progress though UB had their second winless MAC season of the FBS era. Out of conference they did beat Rutgers by a score of 34-11 in front of 19,000 people in Piscataway, NJ.

Coach - Jim Hofher


Hofherwas a Quarterback at Cornell who had worked his way up to coaching in the Ivy League via the Mid American conference.

Hofher's coaching career began in 1981 as the quarterbacks and wide receivers coach at Miami of Ohio. He went on to work at Wake Forest, Syracuse, and  Tennessee before landing the head job at his Alma Mater.

He was the head football coach at Cornell University from 1990 to 1997. After Cornell he once again moved around as an assistant until UB hired him on.

From 2001 to 2005 Hofher led the Bulls to an 8-49 record. 

Gov - George Pataki

American politician who was the 53rd Governor of New York. A member of the Republican Party, Pataki ousted Mario M. Cuomo in 1994 and held the office for three terms.

As he left office in 2006 the New York Times praised his work on health care and the environment.

He was unpopular in liberal circles because of his tax cuts but despite the 95 tax cuts revenues soared to the point that when Pataki left office in 2006, a rainy day fund exceeding $4 billion was passed on to his successor.

In The News News President Bush's first State of the Union address vows to expand the fight on terrorism and labels Iran, Iraq, and North Korea "an axis of evil".
