Section Three: There was more than one great depression in the 1930's

Cliff Notes:

* UB teams renamed the Bulls in 1931 to differentiate between UB and Buffalo professional teams
* Bill Prichard who was an assistant to Biffy Lee was the first to coach "The Bulls" and lasted just one season
* UB played, and was defeated by the Notre Dame "B" team in 1931
* Cornell football alum Jim Wilson led UB for two years in the 30's, in his first two games against Ivy league teams UB lost by a combined 138-0.
* Coach Bibber would join UB from CMU and leave to take over the Athletics department at UConn
* In 1935, Under Coach Bibber Robert Rich, founder of Rich Foods (and owner of the AAA Bision's), would be one of the UB captains.
