ouch, rutgers!

If we had played Rutgers in football last year, I have no doubt we would have beaten them too. And fairly easily at that.

They just lost 8 players  today due to  credit card fraud these guys were operating. Sounds like Binghamton  from years back .   A real bunch of knuckleheads.

No  we are on a winning streak lately . Football , men and women's soccer and volleyball all had wins this past weekend and extended their respective streaks .    I think its the caliber of student athletes we are attracting now are just a little better than what it was several  years ago and don't forget better coaching staffs.   Money does make a difference in Div 1 sports.

Our facilities are among the best for a school at our level, and student athletes can get the same caliber of education that they'd get at a P5 school. SBU is becoming less and less of a secret which is great. I still think we need that big breakout athletic moment that will really put us on the map (Final Four, FCS title), but we're trending in the right direction.

The combined 9-0-1 start by those four teams has created a substantial buzz within our department. Our student-athletes feed off of the energy created by their collective success.  Now our task is to keep it rolling.

it might be subtle to the casual listener- but we are having another great fall: https://stonybrookathletics.com/news/2018/10/18/together-we-transform-blog-together-we-transform-thursday-oct-18-2018.aspx?path=blog

Feeling Good
 
It was another perfect weekend for the Seawolves as our fall teams ran their combined conference record to 17-2-1, a remarkable 87.5 winning percentage.

There are a total of six fall championships that we are competing for, and I believe that we can win every one of them. Pick any program in the country and look at their combined record for football, volleyball, women's soccer and men's soccer. You will be hard-pressed to find a school that is experiencing anything close to what is happening at Stony Brook.


really nice momentum rolling into homecoming. GO SB

With  that being said Chairman  here are the results from tonight =  Volleyball SBU 3- Hartford 0 , Ladies Soccer SBU 2  Hartford 1 in OT .  We sweep the Hawks as the ladies march on toward maybe two conference titles
Wasn't too long ago these programs struggled now new coaching staffs a little stronger athletes and hungrier I might add  get more wins.

Stony Brook Athletics’ fall teams dominating conference play
http://www.sbstatesman.com/2018/10/21/stony-brook-athletics-fall-teams-dominating-conference-play/

Quote
As of Oct. 21, the Stony Brook Seawolves’ fall-season teams are 22-3-1 in conference play, with its four pillars — Football, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Soccer and Volleyball — all experiencing tremendous success this season.

Director of Athletics Shawn Heilbron spoke highly of senior midfielder Serge Gamwanya.

“I think he deserves strong consideration for America East Player of the Year,” Heilbron said. “He’s a leader on the team who does so much on the field, with many things that don’t show up in the box score.”

The women’s soccer team, standing at 11-6-1 (6-1-1), has clinched a spot in the America East Championship for the third straight season.

he volleyball team may be experiencing the best stretch of them all, currently in the midst of a 10-game winning streak. Its 14-8 record, which includes a first-place 8-0 record against the America East, has proven that the Seawolves are no pretender after winning the school’s first conference title last year under newly-hired head coach Kristin Belzung.

Having previously worked at larger schools such as Oregon State and UCLA, he explained that the goals do not change depending on a university’s size.

For now, the answer is to win the America East regular season and take home the Commissioner’s Cup, in which Stony Brook has finished second to Albany for each of the last six years.

The first two America East championships are on the line this weekend as our men's and women's cross country teams compete on Saturday.
 
The men are looking for their third consecutive title while the women are seeking their first since 2012. Head coach Andy Ronan told me that he feels very good about both teams' chances going into the weekend. Juniors Cameron Avery and Vann Moffett lead the men's team while senior Annika Sisson and senior twin sisters Talia and Tiana Guevara pace the women.
 
As I told our staff at our all-department meeting last week, there is no reason that we can't win all six conference championships this fall. Let's get the first two on Saturday!

The football team is heading down to Harrisonburg, Virginia, with a purpose. Immediately after our 52-14 Homecoming win Saturday against Rhode Island, Chuck Priore told his team that they could enjoy it for "about 20 minutes." It was time to get focused on beating third-ranked James Madison. 
 
I really like the way that our team has approached this week. What I like most about it is that our approach hasn't changed a bit. Our team is 15-3 in the last 18 FCS games and Stony Brook is establishing itself as one of the premier teams in the CAA. That's what we have all worked toward, and I'm excited for the opportunity to make a massive statement on Saturday.
 
The game will be aired locally on SNY at 3:30 p.m. I can't wait!

Bye Week for Football: Recharging, Recruiting and Planning
Some teams take Sunday off and practice Monday through Thursday but Chuck started the Sunday night practices three years ago and has found them to be extremely productive.

Another factor that makes the bye week unique is that many of our coaches hit the recruiting trail. This is an extremely critical week as the early signing period for football when a prospective student-athlete can sign his National Letter of Intent begins on December 19. We have a very strong group already committed so having the opportunity to go visit those young men as well as several other prominent prospects is significant.

One of those items was announced earlier today as we agreed to a two-year extension of Chuck's current contract through 2022.


Men's Soccer Wins America East Regular Season Title


Men's Basketball Locked and Loaded
The biggest takeaways from our scrimmages are that we have the ability to play with several different lineups, Jeff Otchere is going to major factor protecting the rim and we need to limit turnovers.


Volleyball Keeps Rolling
Volleyball is trying to deliver our third regular season championship of the fall, and they can get one step closer by defeating Albany on Sunday.
 
The team has won a program-record 12 consecutive matches and is 9-0 in the America East. Kristin Belzung and her staff have done a tremendous job building this program over the past two years.

A Comeback for the Ages
In short, I really like our team and believe that we have all of the pieces necessary to win the league and go to the NCAA Tournament. Perhaps the strongest intangible that sets this team apart is that our guys love to compete. Guys are not just participating in drills, they are working to win drills. Practices are intense and the players are holding each other accountable.  Even water consumption has become a hotly contested event. (Our team received new water bottles that ensure proper hydration through an app that tracks how much water each student-athlete drinks throughout the day.)   


Volleyball in Midst of Historic Season
he list of historic accomplishments for Stony Brook volleyball in 2018 is impressive:
Program record 13-match winning streak
Perfect 10-0 record in America East play
Clinched America East regular season title and will host the conference tournament

Seawolves Make a Believer Out of Donor John Garfinkel

“I always hated the fact that New York is the fourth most populated state in the country,” Garfinkel said, “and there’s not one big-time sports program in a public school.”

So, when his State Farm colleague Brian Levitt, a former Stony Brook football player, invited Garfinkel to join him at the Deputy Chief Raymond Downey Golf Outing to benefit Stony Brook Athletics in 2010, it didn’t take much for Garfinkel to become enamored with the Seawolves program — especially once he had the opportunity to talk with longtime former Seawolves head coach Sam Kornhauser.

That relationship — and a spot on a football road trip that Garfinkel bought at the Golf Outing auction — marked the start of a long and powerful association between Garfinkel and Stony Brook Athletics, including a recent six-figure gift to be shared among the football, men’s and women’s basketball, and women’s lacrosse programs in addition to Seawolves United, a fundraising initiative dedicated to positively transforming the life of each student-athlete.

“Supporters like John Garfinkel exemplify what we’re talking about when we say, ‘Together We Transform,’” said Stony Brook Athletic Director Shawn Heilbron. “John’s latest contribution in eight years of loyal giving will have a tremendous impact for our student athletes and our creation of a powerhouse athletic program here at Stony Brook.”
