Last Chance

First and foremost we wish to extend our thoughts and prayers to the Eastern Michigan player who was injured late in the game on Saturday.  We have heard that he was up and about moving and we wish him a speedy recovery.  Football is a physical game and whilst both teams went at each other with fierce intensity you never want to see any player being injured. 

Obviously it was a very disappointing loss but it was even harder to accept with it being our last home game and the last game at UB stadium for our seniors.  Thank you to the loyal Bulls fans and in particular the student section which has had little to cheer about at home this season but they have continued to support us and we would like to extend our gratitude to every single student who attended a home game this year.  We value your support and believe me it can make the difference in the tight games.

So that brings us to the final game of 2010 against the Akron Zips at their new stadium.  It will be our first road trip to the new stadium and Bulls fans will remember the last time we played Akron away (the last ever game at the Rubber Bowl) was an absolute dogfight that went to 4 overtimes and this game will be just as hard fought as both teams are desperate to finish the season on a high.  This team will fight to the very last play in an attempt to send our seniors out the right way.

Go Bulls

We are not a team to offer excuses for our poor performances this season. However, when Alex Zordich went down with a suspected broken rib the feeling on the sideline was “wow, can it get any worse.”  Time and time again we find ourselves looking to the next bull in when injuries take their toll in this fierce industry.  The locker room has resembled more of a casualty ward then a football locker room this season and eventually that takes its toll.

With that being said though it is up to the healthy next Bulls in to step up and make plays.  The seniors of 2010 do not deserve to end their careers on a sour note and as such the Bulls will continue to fight and compete until the final play of the 2010 season.  We urge all Bulls fans to come out on Saturday to give thanks to a senior group that was instrumental in the Bulls best four-year period in UB football Division I history.

Missed Opportunities

Despite the short turnaround from the Miami game to the Ohio game, the team put in a solid week of practice and the energy was high in the locker room before kick off.  Unfortunately we could not convert that energy into plays on the field and missed a number of opportunities to challenge for a victory.

After hitting the film room for our usual review on Friday after the Ohio game we were given Saturday off to relax, watch some college football and catch up on academic work too.  Sunday we were back at it preparing for Ball State and the rematch of the 2008 MAC Championship.

The remainder of the 2010 season will be a chance for this team to build some momentum for next season and to show our true spirit and perseverance.  Also it is a chance to send the seniors out on the right note, after being served so well by their leadership both on and off the field.

Hope to see a big crowd at the March to Victory and at UB Stadium and fans can check out what is an athletic extravaganza at UB on Friday as the Wrestling team takes on Oklahoma at 3pm in Alumni Arena followed by the Women’s Basketball team taking on Howard at 7pm.
