I haven't posted on this topic yet, but I feel like it now: UB's success is both good and terrible for WNY college basketball.

The good:
-UB's success helps with scheduling, attention, probably a little boost in recruiting.
-If they bought into playing more games at Key Bank Center, it would be a nice DH option.
-I enjoyed watching Beardon, Moss, Harris, Perkins, and Massinburg play over the last few years.

The bad:
-They're significantly outspending the rest of the Big 4 in Athletics. It's not just football; it's the staffing and infrastructure built on student fees and NYS taxpayers.
-Because they spend on media, have more to spend on staffing (salaries and more significantly on positions), game day experience, facility maintenance, etc. they can drown out the other three.
-Oats is not the good guy that the WNY media portrays him to be. His "Super Bowl" comments are tired and ridiculous.

I won't root against them unless they're playing Canisius or another team I like, but I'm also not going to buy a #HornsUP shirt any time soon either.
