Seawolf Wins $5,000 for Tuition in Dr. Pepper’s Tuition Giveaway

The rules of the contest were simple. To win, Koff had to toss a football into an inflated oversized Dr. Pepper can, throw the football into the hole with every hit counting as 1 point. The participant with the highest score would win the grand prize. Each finalist went individually. In the first round, Koff shared the lead with another participant; however, during the tie-breaker round, Koff hit 4 points, while his opponent hit only 3.


this type of thing increases student participation, i think.

Agreed. We need more of this. Increases athletic attendance, and gets kids money for school. I'm all for it.

Basketball Booming

History is happening on the hardwood at Stony Brook.
 
Men's basketball is off to its best start in over 25 years while the women have won five straight, including their first-ever victory over a Big Ten opponent.
 

Volleyball Set to Face BYU in the NCAA Tournament
 
Speaking of history, our volleyball team is riding a school-record 17-match winning streak into tomorrow night's NCAA Tournament contest against No. 4 BYU in Provo.

Our team relishes the challenge of playing BYU, a team that enters the NCAA Tournament with a record of 27-1. Not only has the America East never won a match in the NCAA Tournament, it has never won a set.


Football Focused on 2019

(As a quick aside, perhaps the best news was that we learned late Saturday night that the injury sustained by Donnie Liotine was not nearly as serious as initially feared.) On the flight home, there was a great deal of conversation among the coaches about what needed to happen – immediately – in order to take the next step as a program. Chuck shared some of his thoughts with me prior to our touching down at MacArthur Airport. We plan to meet again tomorrow to continue the discussion. 

Although everyone on that plane was disappointed with how the season ended, we all share a determination and excitement about where our program is headed.

Now we must rise higher.

I believe in our coaches and our student-athletes. The reality is that we are 17-6 against FCS opponents over the past two seasons; our record was 10-10 in the two seasons before that. I'm extremely proud of how far our program has come in a relatively short period of time. We have a plan and it is working.
 
Next season we have seven home games and a roster loaded with talent.

Awesome news about Liotine, but I'm very curious as to what changes could possibly be made. I will give Coach P some credit though, as he's changed coordinators and is willing to make some changes. Our offense these last two seasons looks much better than the abysmal showings we put our during the 15 and 16 season, so I know Coach P is willing to make changes, it just seems like we always revert back to the same old same old tactic. Running up the middle works great against teams you're just plain bigger than. It works great until it doesn't. Fortunately we were able to move the ball on pretty much everyone this past year which was good. It's not all bad, but I can't say I'm all that bullish on Coach P making the offensive changes we all know need to happen.

I really hope they take the steps necessary to take us further into the playoffs. I don't want the program to plateau.

The positive is that the CAA will continue to offer vast opportunities for at-large bids in the future.

Lets go Seawolves!

Additionally, JMU's coach Mike Houston is for sure not going to be coaching there next year, so you could expect at least a moderate step back from JMU, making things a little easier for everyone else. Towson looks to be the team to beat next year as they seem to get everybody back, but it's too early to tell. We're in a good spot as far as returning players next year too, so I'm fairly optimistic with Fields back there.

do we even know that fields will start?

sure, it's unlikely for a red-FR to start, but not impossible...

Noah Farrelly came to Stony Brook this fall filled with excitement as a freshman on the cross country team. A gifted runner and high-achieving student from Binghamton, Noah quickly bonded with his new teammates due to his kind heart and unique sense of humor.
 
Our department was rocked to the core on the evening of December 4 when we received news that Noah had been struck by a vehicle near campus while out for a run. Sadly his injuries were ultimately too traumatic to overcome, and he passed away peacefully two days later.
 
It is every athletic director's worst nightmare to lose a student-athlete. We have now experienced that devastation twice during my time at Stony Brook and I pray that it never happens again. When parents send their children to Stony Brook, they do so knowing that their daughters and sons are becoming a part of our Stony Brook Athletics family. Our family is extremely tight, and that is why we are hurting so badly right now.
 
Noah was an incredible young man who will forever be a part of our Seawolves' family. It is important that we honor him in such a way that future student-athletes, coaches and staff will know the kind of person that he was.
 
I ask you to please keep Noah and his family in your hearts and minds this holiday season. They will remain in ours forever.

In fact, we specifically schedule all Saturday games for 7 p.m. because we believe that is when the energy is at its highest.

My second thought was that my friend and former Oregon State colleague Craig Robinson would be able to take Jameel under his wing. Craig was our head coach at OSU and now serves as the Vice President of Player Development for the Knicks. In his role he also manages operations for the G-League Knicks. When I went to watch Jameel play last year with the Mavericks at Madison Square Garden, I saw Craig and talked to him at length about the greatest player in Stony Brook history.
 
When I texted Craig and told him how excited that I was that Jameel was traded to Westchester, his response to me was: "Who do you think traded for him?" I have a very good feeling about this for Jameel, and Craig has a lot to do with it.

also please read the story about chris infantino.
