    I always see Doug wearing University of Buffalo t-shirts, but I thought he didn't finish college!  So, does anyone know why he is always wearing them?

    I live in Lubbock, Texas and always wear Texas Tech t-shirts and don't go to Tech, won't go to Tech, I am just a fan. For one, it's just wardrobe, and two, he may just be a fan, that's it. Just because you wear a college's shirt doesn't mean you go there.

    I get that, but there are so many other SUNY (State University of New York) schools, to choose the one that is the furthest away (about 500 miles) doesn't make any sense to me!

    Usually you can buy the shirts in the bookstore or giftshop. You don't have to finish.

    The following is from the  Q&A section of the UB Alumni website:

    "I'm a UB alumni and I was wondering if you could answer a question for me. Over the past few years, I have been watching the TV show "King of Queens." The main character of the comedy show is shown wearing University of Buffalo shirts from time to time. They are usually different ones. Can you tell me what his link to UB is? He is obviously promoting the school?"

    Editor's note: Yes, Kevin James, the co-star of "The King of Queens," appeared at UB several years ago. He was getting too hot on stage, and asked for a UB t-shirt. As you noticed, he wears it to this day!

    I've seen a few different shirts, so the story really doesn't make 100% sense. Maybe people started sending them to him after he wore the first one.

    Since a lot of people from all around New York State go to UB I always figured that perhaps his sister, Stephanie (Rikki Lake) went to UB and maybe some day they would mention it, but they never did.
