Albany has won six straight America East Commissioner's Cup titles while we have finished second each time.

Our department was treated to another "Beat Albany" bagel breakfast this morning thanks to our women's basketball team, which earned a convincing 68-52 win over the Great Danes last night.

This is crunch time. We currently lead Albany in the America East Commissioner's Cup standings heading into the stretch run for our spring sports. Let's get it!

As I thought about what to write this week, I realized what I really want is to hear from you. If you have a question, I will answer it. If you have a suggestion, I will consider it. The future of Stony Brook Athletics is in our hands, and the more connected that we all are the better. My email is shawn.heilbron@stonybrook.edu and you may also connect with me on Twitter at @ShawnHeilbron. Let me hear from you!

This is the first year that both the men and women are playing their tournaments on the same days, which means that there are four games taking place today.

Our women took the first step toward their seventh-straight America East title by defeating UMBC earlier today by a score of 17-5.

Lacrosse isn't the only sport that will crown champions this weekend as the America East Track and Field Championships will be held in Albany.

We're having incredible success but we can do more. Our teams finished first in men's and women's soccer, volleyball, tennis, men's lacrosse and women's lacrosse. Men's basketball, men's cross country and women's cross country finished second. Football reached the NCAA Playoffs.

I'd need to see the numbers on this, but I think this deal is a bunch of crap at first glance. That "seven figure annual payout" is for every single school in the entire conference, both full members an affiliates. That's going to workout to almost nothing for SBU each year, and is an even worse deal for all-sports CAA members like Hofstra, JMU, and Delaware, since their fans will need to pay $12.95 a month to get access to their games. ESPN+ is only $5 a month and comes with much more content.

There's no money in FCS media rights, so why the hell is the league office signing deals like this? Just be like the MVFC, Southland, and others and put all the games up on ESPN3 so fans can easily watch, as well as get the league a little bit more exposure. This is a stupid move. We'll get what? $10k a year from them for our rights? Buncha crap.

Dubin Family Indoor Training Center Update
 
Construction is progressing on the Dubin Family Indoor Training Center with the steel expected to go up the week of July 8.
 
Although rain throughout the spring caused some delays, the project continues to move forward and is scheduled for a December completion date.
 
Coming Upů           
 
Our search to identify the next leader of our men's lacrosse program is intensifying. I can assure you that no stone has been left unturned. There are so many outstanding coaches and this decision is going to be extremely difficult!
 
I can assure you that we are going land an exceptional coach who will elevate our program. The goal is to play on Memorial Day weekend, and we're going to hire the guy who will get us there.

I am an overly optimistic person by nature, but I am also a realist. We clearly have more work to do and are just scratching the surface of what we can be. More of our teams need to reach NCAA postseason play and we must continue to knock off Power 5 opponents. The next five-year plan will be ambitious, but this is the time to decide what we want to be. I want to be great. Our coaches, staff and student-athletes want to be great. 
 
I'm looking forward to working alongside our Interim President Michael Bernstein, who is extremely knowledgeable about Division I athletics, as we continue to build our program.

"Ambitious." "Time to decide what we want to be."

Sounds like FBS football is part of the plan to me! Also, I LOVE the optimism around basketball even with Lamb coming back to Vermont.

If somehow Shawn Heilbron squeaked out an invite for SB to make that leap into FBS, I'll be the biggest Wolfie this school has ever seen!! But come on, let's be real. The AAE wont even give JMU a look into their conference and is okay with 11 members. Why would SB get that invite today????

JMU is good but they cant touch our academic profile .  The best they got is graduating  Master's Degree students.  SBU is an AAU Member with  the ability to graduate  MD's as well as PHD's  in multiple disciplines.  It is more than football  to move up .

Exactly this. The academics matter more than the sports. You can build a sports program fairly easily, especially if you're FBS playing high profile teams. It's much harder to build up the academic side of the house. Most people don't understand most of realignment comes down to academics. This puts SBU in a great position going forward to move up to a better conference.

Of course when Heilbron talks about "ambitions" in this case, he could also mean something like an NCAA tournament Sweet 16 appearance or FCS national title (lmao yeah right  :D ).
