SB is now ranked #139 in the Sagarin ratings  http://www.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/fbt11.htm

The Wolves are higher than a dozen or so 1A teams, and only six behind Liberty. It's the highest they've been. Sagarin is more meaningful than RPI because it considers margin of victory , as well as win-loss record and quality of opponents. The Big South would also use it in its tie-breaking formula for who goes to the playoffs.

I don't ever really look at football rpi or sagarin rankings so I don't know how accurate they are, but I have to think the sample size is too small to have a good comparison. I think Buffalo is a lot better than their sagarin ranking. I have to think they would be at least a top 10 IAA team.

I know 'woulda coulda shoulda' but this Stony Brook team could easily be 7-1 right now. I have to think if they finished the season 9-2 with losses to Buffalo and Liberty they would get an at large. Anyone agree?

I've also been thinking about the Big South strength as a conference. Obviously it's not elite IA competition, but I think it might be better than it gets credit for (or at least it's hard to tell how good they are). The Big South ooc schedules are probably some of the toughest in IAA. I don't know if any conference plays more money games per team than the big south and then the majority of the remaining games are against the Southern Conference or CAA (elite IAA conferences) teams. Presbyterian probably has the most challenging out of conference schedule in the country.

Post by: ecasadoSBU on October 31, 2011, 02:42:25 pm
Of course I agree. If Stony Brook would've pulled a win at UTEP and won the Brown game even if they lost to Liberty they would probably get the at-large. But its too late now. We have to hope for a win in the next three games to get a auto-bid.

Title: Re: 2011 Stony Brook Seawolves Football News
Post by: sbufan on October 31, 2011, 05:50:44 pm
Yeah I only ask because there seems to be this idea that Big South isn't multi bid conference, and that regardless of the teams play your not getting an at large if don't get the auto which I think is nonsense.
Title: Re: 2011 Stony Brook Seawolves Football News
Post by: SleepySmurf on November 04, 2011, 01:05:48 pm
It's nonsense, but the unfortunate truth is that that is how the conference is seen by those who make the playoff decisions.  As a conference our OOC record is not great.  SBU and Liberty are the only two teams with overall winning records, and both have 3 losses.  This is typical for the last couple of years.  I doubt a Big South team gets an at-large until these things start to change.  Also, some wins in the playoffs by our auto-bid team would help.

Post by: ecasadoSBU on November 04, 2011, 03:10:15 pm
The top two of the conference are good (whether thats Liberty-CCU or Liberty-SBU). But the bottom teams **** it up. we need a strong CSU and VMI.

Post by: Libertine on November 07, 2011, 10:50:38 am
There will be no at-large candidate from the Big South in 2011 for larger reasons than simply conference disrespect.
An NCAA guideline states that to get into the FCS playoff field, a team needs 7 wins against D-1 competition.  This is a guideline, not a rule, but it has never been set aside in the entire history of the I-AA/FCS playoffs.  In the case of this season, neither SBU's win over St. Anselm or Liberty's win over Kentucky Wesleyan count toward that total, leaving the loser of the SBU-LU game with only 6 D-1 wins.

Liberty announced its intention to go FBS. With Stony Brook and others likley to bolt to better FCS conferences at the first opportunity (almost certainly the CAA for SBU)), I don't think we'll see a Big South conference around in three or four years

"Stony Brook quarterback Kyle Essington had a good teacher"
http://www.newsday.com/sports/college/stony-brook/stony-brook-quarterback-kyle-essington-had-a-good-teacher-1.3926662

Great article:

Quote
It started with his father tossing him a football in the backyard of their home in Chino Hills, Calif. Kyle Essington, then a fifth-grader and now the star quarterback at Stony Brook University, initially thought nothing more of it than a chance to spend time with his dad, Randy.

Then it started to click. The way Randy handled the ball -- the grip, the spiral, the distance -- was like the quarterbacks Kyle saw when they watched college football on television.

Nothing in the Essington household advertised that Randy had been a premier college quarterback at Colorado who was drafted by the Super Bowl champion Raiders in 1984. "You know how kids are; they want to be like their dad,'' Randy said. "My whole life, I never had any memorabilia of me playing. I never wanted him to think it was everything in the world to me that he played football.''

So Dad never mentioned his football career. "I think Kyle overheard people conversing with Randy and I regarding Randy playing,'' said Julie Essington, Kyle's mom. "Kyle started asking questions. We said, 'It was wonderful. Your dad was drafted by the Raiders.' It made Kyle think, 'Wow, my dad was kind of a big deal.' ''  .....

Stony Brook, N.Y. - Closing out the year in style, the Stony Brook football team held the 2012 Grant Family Banquet at the Student Activities Center on campus Sunday. Head coach Chuck Priore handed out the team's awards and announced the 2013 captains.

The Ernest Owusu Offensive MVP went to senior Miguel Maysonet (Riverhead, N.Y.). Maysonet, a finalist for the Walter Payton Award, given to the outstanding player in FCS, rushed for 1,964 yards, the 11th most yards in a season in FCS history, and scored 23 total touchdowns. The 5-10, 210-pound back accounted for more than 100 rushing yards in a game six times and had three games with 200 or more yards in 2012. During a four-game span, he rushed for a career-high three times, capped by a 233-yard, two-touchdown performance at Coastal Carolina.

Senior Dominick Reyes (Hesperia, Calif.) captured the team's Defensive MVP award. Reyes finished the season with a career-best 75 tackles, becoming the Seawolves' all-time leader with 158 solo tackles. He was second on the team with 9.0 tackles for loss, starting each game for a third straight season.

Redshirt freshman Naim Cheeseboro (King of Prussia, Pa.) garnered the Ray Downey Special Teams MVP. The special teams ace made 26 tackles, often being the first player downfield on kick-off coverage. His recovery of a free kick against Villanova helped the Seawolves extend their lead in the first-round victory.

The Offensive Rookie of the Year went to junior Marcus Coker (Beltsville, Md.). Coker, a transfer from Iowa, rushed for 1,018 yards and 9 TDs, giving the Seawolves two backs with 1,000 yards for a third straight season. Eight of his nine scores were inside four yards.

Junior Leston Simpson (Springfield Gardens, N.Y.) led Stony Brook with 10.0 tackles for loss en route to Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Simpson, who finished second among all defensive linemen with 35 tackles, also made four sacks, and totaled a career-high seven tackles against Pace and Coastal Carolina.

Senior Kyle Essington (Chino Hills, Calif.) earned the Fred Kemp Award, given to the upperclassman who is dedicated to excellence on and off the field, while leading the team with pride and intensity. The Mark Motroni Award, which goes to the upperclassman who demonstrates great pride in the Stony Brook football program and consistently exhibits unselfish dedication to the team, was awarded to senior Chris Fenelon (Bellerose, N.Y.).

For a second straight year, senior Jonathan Coats (Elmira Heights, N.Y.) received the Frank Conti Work Horse Award and junior Victor Spinelli (Northport, N.Y.) earned the Academic Achievement Award.

Priore also announced that seniors Davonte Anderson (Corona, Calif.), Michael Bamiro (Tobyhanna, Pa.), Jawara Dudley (Roosevelt, N.Y.) and Matt Faiella (Freehold, N.J.) will be the 2013 captains.

A special thanks goes to Alphonzo Grant '93, '94 and Isis Sapp-Grant '93 for sponsoring the dinner, Mark Motroni, Jr. '88 for sponsoring the awards and Mike Derice '08 for sponsoring the coaches' table.

Thanks to John Campolettano, Jr., Chuck Downey '88, Steven Mardy '05, Jim Megna '89, Dan Michitsch '07, Stu Sharoff '88, Roberto Tillman '78, Tony Thompson '97 and Sean Van Slyck '95 for sponsoring the student-athletes.

Stony Brook also announced on Wednesday that Maysonet has been invited to participate in the inaugural Raycom College Football All-Star Classic on Jan. 19 in Montgomery, Ala. The game features coaching staffs headed by NFL veterans Dan Reeves and Jim Bates, and it will be televised on the CBS Sports Network. The game takes place the same day as the East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Additionally, Maysonet is on the emergency invite list for the prestigious Senior Bowl on Jan. 26 in Mobile, Ala. Senior Bowl running backs announced so far include Wisconsin’s Montee Ball, Oregon’s Kenjon Barner, UCLA’s Johnathan Franklin and Florida’s Mike Gillislee. If anyone drops out, Maysonet would be on the short list to receive an invite.

At the moment, Maysonet is projected to be drafted in the fourth or fifth round in April, but now he has an opportunity to improve his stock with his pre-draft performance in the Raycom All-Star showcase and the Indy combine.

Off topic. Did anyone watch the FCS Champion game on saturday NDSU vs Sam Houstan ??  .. What a great game that was.... After watching that game I  was just thinking about how NDSU could very easilly be in a FBS confrence and compete against some of the smaller school in the FBS and win, and they have. Actually I think they do have a winning record against FBS schools... The question is. Do they want to join the FBS or just stay in the FCS and win Champiomships????? 

From what I've been reading lately, if an FBS school makes it into a Bowl game that school would need to sheel out about $10 milliom dollars??? someone correct me if I'm wrong with that but sounds like alot of $$$$ for a small school like NDSU and many other FCS schools to be paying for a bowl game.

So the question reamains...If SBU becomes as good as NDSU, Old Domimion, and others and could easilly compete in a FBS confrence, would they want to ??????

I saw the FCS champ game over the weekend.  i was really impressed with the fan support of both teams.  that's what it takes to get program to the next level.  SB has a way to go in that area.  but we are moving in the right direction.  a continuation of the winning seasons will hopefully put fans in the stadium for our home games and will get more fans to travel for the road games.  lets not get the cart ahead of the horse with big FBS expectations. 
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: Chrissy D. on January 07, 2013, 02:26:34 pm
 I agree with BigFF. We are not there yet with fan support. Also it's not always the best move to jump up to FBS. I don't know what it does for some of these programs. You go from being top dog in the FCS to an after thought in FBS. You can get talent but it takes alot more than that to be a successful FBS program. Northeast football on a whole needs to get better. All the FBS teams that have cut ties with the northeast ( Pitt, Penn St., BC, Rutgers, Syracuse, Uconn?) is a sign of disconnect. This is a pro football area but it could be a college one as well. I think that The CAA teams bring that back to some extent. Umass playing in the MAC doesn't accomplish a thing. If in 5-10 yrs they elevate some CAA teams from the Northeast like SB, NH, Delaware, Maine etc and take some of the big east teams that are going to be left in the cold when that conf dismantles and create a new Northeast heavy conf, I feel that will work. But putting SB or NH in the MAC would make no sense. It needs to be geographic in order to get the fan bases involved. And hopefully with the continued local recruiting our attendance will keep going up, cause it needs to.

The Umass story sounds like a complete disaster. i don't think we can compare S/B to UMASS ..Their Alumni would have to travel 90 miles to  Foxboro stadium just to watch the game !!!!. Complete disaster they are  not to mention the football program lost over $750,000 in 2012 due to low attendance. I would actually like to see SB play UMASS...

Washington, D.C. - Stony Brook All-American Kevin Norrell has accepted an invitation to play in the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) Collegiate Bowl on January 19. The game will be played at Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., near Norrell's hometown of Los Angeles.

The game will be televised live on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. ET, and features the top draft-eligible seniors in the country. ESPNU will broadcast four hours of live coverage of the practices. Former NFL head coaches Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil will lead the American and National teams.

Norell's 2012 season will go down as one of the most prolific campaigns in school and Big South history. The all-conference performer caught 66 passes for 1,388 yards and 15 TDs. He's the only player in Stony Brook history with at least 1,000 receiving yards in a season, and owns the Big South single-season records for yards, yards per game (106.8) and yards per catch (21.0).

He recorded 100 yards and a touchdown in five straight games, including a school-record 214 yards against Charleston Southern. In back-to-back games against Presbyterian and VMI, Norrell tallied three touchdowns. Norrell owns the second and third-longest touchdown receptions with scores of 89 and 86 yards against Central Connecticut and Pace.

Norrell, who started his career at Washington State, earned All-America honors from three different organizations - The Sports Network, Associated Press and Phil Steele.

Norrell finished his two-year Seawolves career with 20 TDs and 2,061 yards, which are tied for second and third, respectively, in the program's Division I history.

In the week leading up to the game, current NFL coaches and players will speak to the participants on the business of football, and how to succeed in life after the NFL. The future stars of the NFL will be given insight on how to handle success on and off the field.

 It just gets better and better for S/B..........................Kevin Norrell invited to NFLPA Collegiate Bowl

 Tuesday January 8, 2013 10:08 AM By Greg Logan


Photo credit: Joseph D. Sullivan

Stony Brook wide receiver Kevin Norrell, who led the Football Championship Subdivision in yards per catch (21.0) last season, has accepted an invitation to play in the NFLPA-sponsored Collegiate Bowl all-star game Jan. 19 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The game will be televised live on ESPN2, and ESPNU will provide live practice coverage during the week.

Norrell joins Seawolves running back Miguel Maysonet on the postseason all-star circuit, which should provide a visibility boost for coach Chuck Priore’s football program. Maysonet, who was runnerup for the Walter Payton Award as FCS player of the year, has been invited to the prestigious East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 19 in St. Petersburg, Fla., but to play in that game, he first must obtain a release from the Raycom College Football All-Star Classic played that same day in Montgomery, Ala.

Stony Brook’s two straight FCS playoff appearances coincided with Norrell’s emergence as a deep-strike threat. As a senior, Norrell caught 66 passes for 1,388 yards and 15 touchdowns, and he set Big South conference records for yards, yards per game (106.8) and yards per catch. He also set a school record with a 214-yard game against Charleston Southern. Norrell, a Los Angeles native who transferred from Washington State, earned All-America honors from The Sports Network, Associated Press and Phil Steele.

http://thepewterplank.com/2013/01/08/2013-nfl-draft-preview-acc-and-more-with-chris-lang/

Leo: As a former beat writer for an FCS team, who are some main prospects from this level of college football? In particular, do you believe a player like Kevin Fogg from Liberty (Leo’s alma mater) has a chance to make an NFL roster?

Chris: Fogg is petitioning for a medical hardship year and hopes to come back next season. But he’s certainly the sort of player who has carved a niche out for himself not only as a physical player who can cover at corner, but as a dynamic special teams player who is great in both the kick and punt return games. As you saw with Mike Brown last year, players who can do multiple things well have great value in a game where you have limited roster space. As far as other FCS players, the highest guy I’m seeing on draft boards is Tennessee Tech’s Da’Rick Rogers, the Tennessee transfer wide receiver. I’ve got to think a guy like Miguel Maysonet from Stony Brook will get a look, though. Tough, crafty runner with power inside and shiftiness outside.

maysonet invited to NFL combine:

Large FCS contingent invited to NFL Combine
Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Respect for the FCS level appears to be growing on the NFL level.

A contingent of 24 players from FCS schools have been invited to the NFL Combine to held over Feb. 20-26 at Lucas Oil Stadium. The official list was announced by the NFL on Thursday.

Headling the offensive group was a strong group of wide receivers: Jacksonville State's Alan Bonner, Eastern Kentucky's Tyrone Goard, Eastern Washington's Brandon Kaufman, Elon's Aaron Mellette, Tennessee Tech's Darick Rogers and Lehigh's Ryan Spadola.

There also were six offensive linemen: Arkansas-Pine Bluff's Terron Armstead, Tennessee State's Rogers Gaines, Alabama A&M's Jamaal Johnson-Webb,

Youngstown State's Lamar Mady, Cornell's J.C. Tretter and James Madison's Earl Watford.

In addition, Southern Utah quarterback Brad Sorensen and Stony Brook running back Miguel Maysonet, the 2012 Walter Payton Award runner-up, received invitations.

Defensively, there were four FCS cornerbacks: Southeastern Louisiana's Robert Alford, Appalachian State's Demetrius McCray, Sam Houston State's Dax Swanson and William & Mary's B.W. Webb.

Also invited were linebackers Brandon Hepburn of Florida A&M and Keith Pough of Howard; defensive tackles Montori Hughes of UT Martin and Jared Smith of New Hampshire; Samford defensive end Nick Williams; and Georgia Southern safety J.J. Wilcox.

All 32 NFL teams will evaluate about 340 of the nation's top college players for the NFL Draft. Participants will be scheduled by position over the final four days of the Combine.

The draft will be held April 26-28 in New York.

Our pro-caliber running backs haven't had the best luck in their pro quests. Conte Cuttino made a dumb tweet and got kicked off of his CFL team (and is still out of a job last I heard). Jackowlski got injured before last year's combine and was never signed, and now Maysonet's injury. Of course Maysonet is a cut above, so I'll be shocked if he remains unsigned.

It's crazy that Maysonet never missed a game in college then he tweeks his hammy preparing for the all star game/combine. 

Fingers crossed he can do the 40 at his pro day.   Hell, he could start on the Jets today!

The first time you guys came up to Buffalo the game was on Time-Warner Sportsnet locally and was originally listed for ESPN3. But ESPN pulled it last-minute. Even with that, the MAC website streamed the broadcast for free as it does for all members so that's the best place to check this fall if ESPN does not pick it up.

Nice analysis by our Greg Logan!

What a great read that was from the CAA!!! .  I agree with Logan, It's going to be really interesting to see who Priore pic's to be the starting Quarterback!!. The second interesting aspect is in the wide receiver department. Besides that, the rest of the positions appear to be solid and possibly better then last year. lets see how this begins to unfold come this summer.

I rather play BC then play Buffalo or Pittsburgh but, I did say all along, I rather have that one extra home game then have an extra FBS opponent to play against ..

Pitts' schedule is out too.. not playing them. So its probably going to be an FCS team which I wouldn't mind if its a homegame. That original schedule with first 4 away games was tough.

Whatever happened.. our AD definitely agreed.

Fiore probably wanted to get rid of a game from the first four away games, anyway. And as soon as BC called Fiore probably said "Sure.. but we get to visit you next year". I hope we didnt give up without a promised game @BC next year or in near future. Then its a win win situation. We give our team a break from the tough schedule and still play them in future.

Lets just see what happens. Lehigh also has an opening on 8/31.

As much as I want to believe BC chnaged their schedule is because of the total humiliation it would have been for them because we would have put a woopen on them but, I think the 4 away games to start  the season was a bit to much. We will probably have our first game of the season at home but with whom ???????

its just a bit deflating to lose that game, since its relatively close and an FBS game to boot.  Funny that SB would announce their schedule then change it.  I'm hating Nova more and more already.   hopefully its a high caliber FCS team, and not from the lower tire groupings.

 Guys this is good news. We need to have an early home game, it's important in building the fan base. Any FCS gm to open the season at home will be big for the program. Playing a month on the road to open the season doesn't do anything to pull in fans. Losing the money sucks, but packing out Lavalle will bring in money too. Besides Hammer the tailgaits are much better in the warm weather ( I'll have that "Cheeseboro sandwich ready for you"). As long as they don't bring in a D2 team it's all good.

i heard that BC may have asked out of the game, seeing they have a new coach, had a horrible season last year, and were pitted up against one of the best FCS teams in Game 1.  BC goes to LA and plays USC in week 3 or 4, so they might have been looking for a way to lighten up their schedule, hence Nova.

Stony Brook promotes Hemphill to defensive coordinator
Stony Brook, NY (Sports Network) - Stony Brook defensive backs coach Lyle Hemphill has been promoted to defensive coordinator, head football coach Chuck Priore announced on Tuesday.

Hemphill replaces Rob Neviaser, who resigned to accept a position at Bowling Green.

"For the past two seasons, Rob has helped us set the benchmark of Stony Brook defense," Priore said. The promotion of Lyle will help us maintain consistency. I'm excited about the level of energy and passion Lyle will bring as our new coordinator."

Stony Brook is joining CAA Football this season, and Hemphill has extensive experience in the conference, serving two different stints with Delaware.

He will coordinate a defense that returns six starters, including senior linebacker Jawara Dudley, a two-time all-conference selection.

Stony Brook had a 10-3 record this past season, earning a share of the Big South Conference title and reaching the FCS playoff second round.

for QB competition, I think its a bit early to begin speculation.  Negron has to be incumbent, due to his returning status as a redshirt senior.  its his job to lose, so to speak.  I am sure he will get spirited competition from Bednarski and Hernandez this spring. 

from what I recall,NCAA rules say that the coaches can not observe the players doing actual football drills right now, only the conditioning stuff can be led by the coaching staff.  I believe that shortly before Spring Ball starts in mid-march, we will begin to see the coaches and players doing football stuff together.  so whatever the QBs and receivers are doing right now, they are organizing throwing sessions on their own, throwing in the gym, or maybe now out at La Valle stadium if the snow is gone. 

can someone start up a folder on Spring Football 2013 so that we can log our comments in that folder?  thanks

I must admit that I'm a little confused re: the QB options available.  All the info I've previously run across indicates that Jimmy Walker also signed with SBU awhile back, and he seemed to be a very talented candidate.  Yet, he is never mentioned in the QB mix.  Have I missed something here?  Did Walker disappear off the map, or is he still one of the signees?

I hear you !!!!.. I wish we had a little more info with regards to our Quarterback situation but like BFF said, we must wait untill the spring practice to see who is out on the field throwing, something to do with the NCAA rules.  Priore can't practice with the players yet on the greens .. I have no clue if this is in fact true !!!

I think Walker will be either a preferred walk on or a grant in-aid player.  I dont think he was offered an outright scholarship.  someone posted a news clip of him signing at his HS a few weeks back, so I think he will be at SB in the Fall.  but he is still in HS right now, so will not be part of spring practice.

well.... a lot of folks in the FCS liked downplaying the talent of an student-athlete based on the conference they played on. At least we wont have to worry about that any longer. The CAA is still one of the top conferences in the country and that will surely help our athletes case.

I honestly think Maysonet should've been drafted... IMO he was talented enough to be our first draftee...

ecasadoSBU.. I agree. miguel got screwed because of the Big South. Had we been in the CAA, and had Miguel put up the same numbers he did in the BS he would have been a late round draft pick for sure. All the analyst said that....... Without a doubt the scouts look at what conference a team/player plays in and that has a HUGE affect on if a NFL team will draft a player or not..  But the BS is now behind us and the CAA is a conference that garners respect from recruits, not the BS.. Sorry captainj21, I disagree with you !!

 Coker and Bamiro would get drafted no matter what conf. they played in. Scouts didn't like Maysonet's size and not being able to play in the all star gms hurt him. We all know that he should have been drafted, and we all know that scouts make mistakes. The end result is that he is were we all thought he should be, in an NFL camp, signed to a rookie contract. The idea is to make the team, it should not matter how you get there. I think guys like Victor Cruz and Wayne Chrebet have proved that. If you can play you can play and a smart team will find you.

Five-a-Side: Stony Brook's Marcus Coker
By Craig Haley, FCS Executive Director

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - As the Walter Payton Award candidacy grew for Stony Brook's Miguel Maysonet last year, Marcus Coker did what he thought he was supposed to do as a fellow running back.

Coker tried to remain in a secondary role out of respect to Maysonet.

It wasn't quite what Stony Brook coach Chuck Priore had in mind for the new transfer from the University of Iowa, so he pulled Coker aside and challenged him a bit.

"I said, 'Respect yourself,'" Priore told Coker.

It's true Maysonet finished the season as the runner-up for the FCS' outstanding player award, but the Seawolves needed Coker as well in their first 10-win season. He rushed for 1,018 yards and nine touchdowns on 210 carries, going over 100 yards in three of their final five games.

Maysonet is gone from what was a unique running back rotation, but Stony Brook's "other" 1,000-yard rusher is back. As the Seawolves take a jump in conferences from the Big South to CAA Football, Priore says he expects Coker to carry the ball 25-30 times per game.

The 6-foot-2, 230-pound cruncher should have a huge season, too. He understands how to extend plays and deflate defenses with his physical running style, as his 1,384 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore at Iowa in 2011 would attest.

An NFL prospect for 2014, Coker arrived at Stony Brook following his dismissal from the Big Ten school in early 2012. He was investigated for an alleged assault, but not charged. He believes he's learned from his mistakes and has been more of a leader for his FCS team.

In Five-a-Side - In the FCS Huddle's monthly feature of "five questions, five answers" with an influential person in the FCS - Coker discusses the season ahead for Stony Brook football.

Let's kick off:

TSN: Obviously, you were on a higher level of competition at Iowa. Now a lot of your teammates are stepping up to a higher level in the CAA. What does a program have to do at a higher level?

MC: We're definitely excited. Some new challenges, some great teams, one of the better conferences in the NCAA.

They just have to raise their intensity. Everybody on our team has to raise their play level, which our guys are ready to do.

TSN: You had a big season last year with over 1,000 yards rushing. But this team also relied on Miguel in a big way. What do you have to do to fill that void?

MC: It's going to be big shoes to fill, but I think we can get it done. We're going to have to do it.

TSN: How are you and Miguel similar and different with running style?

MC: We're probably completely different in almost every facet. He's short ... short ... really short (he smiles). No, he's a speedy guy with agility, he jumps over people. I'm just lower my shoulder, (with) jukes every once in a while but very rarely so.

TSN: How about your time at Iowa. When you look back on it, is there anything you would change, and how has that impacted you now?

MC: I wouldn't change anything. Everything in my past makes me who I am today. Looking back, it was a fun experience. The coaches, they were great to me.

TSN: Will Stony Brook have another Walter Payton Award finalist this year?

MC: That's the goal. Always.

Coker named to Senior Bowl watch list
Running back enters 2013 as the starter for Seawolves

Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook senior running back Marcus Coker (Beltsville, Md.) was named to the Senior Bowl watch list on Thursday. The list includes the nation's top seniors and NFL prospects from around the nation.

"Last year, the inaugural Senior Bowl Watch List included 312 prospects with 94 total players ultimately being drafted from our game," said Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage. "With 60,000-plus athletes playing college football, and only 250 or so NFL draft choices each year, we believe there is some legitimate prestige with being placed on our 'official' Watch List."

Stony Brook's 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year, Coker rushed for 1,018 yards and nine touchdowns in his first season at Stony Brook. Coker totaled three games of 100 or more yards and eight of his nine touchdowns were within four yards or less.

The University of Iowa transfer has been named a preseason All-American by multiple publications.

Coker and the Seawolves will get underway in just 13 days when the season kicks off at Rhode Island on September 7.

he would half to ware a brace if he returns in 2015.

Even though the CAA seems to be unwilling to recognize any of the Seawolves' players for weekly awards, it's nice toi see that they're getting some recognition at the national level.

Our next HC???  his contract was good through 2019, and they owe him $7.9M

Bo Pelini fired after 7 seasons with Cornhuskers

 LINCOLN, Neb. - (AP) -- Bo Pelini was fired as Nebraska's football coach on Sunday after a seven-year stint marked by an inability to restore the program to national prominence and too many embarrassing defeats.

Pelini extended his streak of winning at least nine games every season with a 37-34 overtime win at Iowa on Friday but he never won a conference championship and his teams lost four games in every season he completed.

Pelini was 66-27 and led the Cornhuskers to three league championship games in the Big 12 and Big Ten.

"I didn't see enough improvement in areas that were important for us to move forward and play championship-caliber football," athletic director Shawn Eichorst said at a news conference. "We weren't good enough in games that mattered against championship-caliber opponents."

Ricard named AP All-American
Stony Brook's leading tackler named to second team


Dec. 17, 2014


Stony Brook, N.Y. - Senior Christian Ricard (Spencer, Mass.) of the Stony Brook football team was named an Associated Press All-American Wednesday afternoon. Ricard, a second-team selection, was one of 11 student-athletes from CAA Football to be honored.
 
Ricard recorded career-highs in tackles (92), tackles for loss (21.0) and sacks (9.0). His 21.0 tackles for loss are a single-season school record. Ricard was a key cog in Stony Brook's suffocating defense, which finished the regular season ranked fourth in scoring defense (15.5 ppg).
 
An Academic All-District selection, Ricard made 242 total tackles, which ranks fourth all-time in school history

It is so much harder to compete in a D1 program; what some of these kids accomplish in high school doesn't always workout at this level.

We have QB's that have strengths but they also have weaknesses; I am hopeful that one of them can improve on there weaknesses.

We should have a competitive D; but the offensive line & passing game needs to improve dramatically this year. If they can develop a strong play active passing game then the running game will be very strong.

We will have good size on the O line this year; i am hopeful they play well as a unit.

Post by: BigFatFan on December 27, 2014, 06:46:45 pm
ddmd:  i think our play calling has to improve dramatically.  Hammertime and I have been chatting off line and one thing we both noticed with the FCS teams in the playoffs is how dynamic the play calling is by these "good" teams.  I understand from talking to one of the players that SB has lots more plays in the playbook that just dont get run in the games.  dont know the reason why, supposedly they practice them but dont run them.  and I saw no use of a hurry up offense this season. I mean, what football team does NOT have a 2 minute offense.  and lord knows we could have used that a couple of times this season, like our three point loss to JMU, we ran an offense with absolutely no urgency at the end of the game.  I put that one on the coaching staff and their apparent stubbornness to keep with the same play calling we ran in the Big South.

kind of a strange quote by this guy at the time he was signing with SB:  “I wish I could play quarterback at Stony Brook, but most schools like my ability to have a nose for the ball on defense, which I am fine with,” he said. “I have a lot of experience playing safety and I actually was recruited to Nassau CC as a safety and moved to quarterback early in the second week of training camp my freshman year.”

back then we had Essington and Coulter at QB

Craig Geoghan; he is a 5th year senior?

Usually 1 years transfer don't offer much to a program; so are they also possible thinking about using as QB also. How much experience has he had playing db.

The team needs tall physical corners to go up against these big WR.

that QB from SB is pretty cool. how he got to that bowl game i have no idea.  it seems like a recruiting bowl game for lower level players to get a chance to showcase in front of CFL and arena coaches.

here is the bio on the SB QB.  http://www.stonybrookathletics.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/geoghan_craig00.html

i wonder if he kept that stuff like the helmet when he left SB, or did Coach P loan the helmet and SB stuff to him for this bowl game??

We can't say Senator Lavelle isn't trying! !. Coumo also Vetoed $2 million for an indoor work out facility. ..

How are we ever going to compete in Div1 sports if we can't make improvements  to our existing facilities and give the Athletes a place to work out in the winter!  Let's hope some wealthy contributor has 24 million dollars to give to SB Athletes for the expansion and a dome type workout facility. .

We still have 5.7 million tucked away  from last year for additional seating , restrooms and concession stands on the visitors side.  That will add 2300 to 2500 seats making the stadium  over 10k in seats. So we will see what happens going forward .  A 22.2  million dollar expansion is huge and I don't think we need that now.  We now have 8300 seats  so if we go to 10,800 and fill it  every game  then maybe  15k  or higher is worth it .  Remember  the whole stadium as it is now cost 22 million .

"Giant steps

Tight end Jerome Cunningham and wide receiver Preston Parker were carted off the field with cramps late in practice. Guard John Jerry has been ill and has been limited the first two days . . . Coughlin was upset with the offense's play in Saturday's workout. "I didn't think too many people on offense showed me anything today," he said . . . Tight end Will Tye (Stony Brook University) made a nice catch over the middle, showing good speed . . . The Giants announced that Dr. Scott Rodeo is their new team physician, replacing Dr. Russell Warren, who had been in that position for more than 31 years. Warren will remain with the team as an active emeritus team physician."

After watching the Giants last night, I'm losing hope that either Bamiro or Tye will make the squad.  Mike got into the game only at the very end and played for only four or five snaps with the third string QB.  I spotted Tye only on a few special team plays, so he had no opportunity to show his wares at TE.  Considering that the Giants looked pretty awful and certainly should be exploring all avenues to improve, the lack of playing time for Mike and Will does not bode well.

On the other hand, Newsday said this morning  that the fact that Tye was on the field for an early special teams play made his chances look pretty good.  So, what do I know?

I agree with Newsday. I've been reading all the articles on the internet lately about Tye and it's clear he will not make the Roster this season as TE. If by slim chance he does make the team, special teams is where he would wind up. Who cares where he winds up as long as he makes the roster... As far as Big Mike is concerned I dont think he makes the team again this year. PS will be his home,again!!

In scanning the Giants' preseason games so far, I've not found that Tye has brrn in on any plays from the huddle.  I've only seen him on a few special teams situation.

As for Bamiro, in the last two games he's only been in on the last couple of series with the third-stringers.

So, I guess that will have to speak for itself.

Connor Davis was moved to the offensive line and is started at right tackle. Dylan Joslin was moved from over the from the defensive line to back up at right guard. I'm not sure i understand what an "anchor" on defense is supposed to be. Is the plan to play a base 3-4?

Tell me if I'm way off base here.  But, since there is nobody at all listed at at TE, is it possible that the plan is to have Connor at tackle to beef up the blocking, while still declaring him as an eligible receiver?

Post by: CTWolfie on September 01, 2015, 10:16:49 am
In Coach P's system, the Y and the T are his Tight Ends.  These are the positions that Nehls and Tye played last season. 
Unfortunately, the team was caught this summer being substantially undermanned at the offensive line. They had a commitment from the lineman from Fordham and then I guess he decided to pursue other plans.
As for Connor Davis, the young man is to be highly commended for his commitment to this team.  Being moved around from position to position each season I am sure is a challenge. Kudos to Connor for accepting this challenge.
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: BigFatFan on September 01, 2015, 10:59:06 am
Kudos to Connor for making the switch, I am sure its very frustrating to have been told last winter that he would be a TE, only to find out when reporting to camp that the Coaching staff was unable to secure much depth on the O line.  and this is kind of surprising for a run-first coach like P to have a shortage of OL linemen.  remember last year, we were forced to start redshirt freshman at OL, and we had lots of growing pains with that move.  now this year, we are just flat out thin at OL.  I just cant believe its because one transfer got a better offer from a bigger program that has placed us in this unfortunate position.  fingers crossed for this season once again. 
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: ddmd on September 01, 2015, 12:08:03 pm
Connor & Jackson will both play OL & TE; they both have 2 differnt jerseys.....

They have set plays established this year.....I hope he gets a chance in the passing game; he really looked crisp going into camp. The match up against a 6ft8" 270# TE would be a problem for the secoundary.

This team is very thin on the OL; I hope they can stay healthy.
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: CTWolfie on September 01, 2015, 12:10:31 pm
I agree with you BFF.  The recent failure to recruit and retain a sufficient number of capable offensive linemen is a major concern.  The Fordham recruit's decision isn't the whole problem it is just a single example. It appears, however, that the issue has been recognized and a new position (Assistant AD/Director of Player Personnel) was created and filled this summer by the re-hire of coach Patrick Hatch.  He is a go-getter.  I am hopeful we see improvement in this area with the next recruiting class. For now, however, we just have to cross our fingers and hold our breath.

more on Coxson and his retirement, from Washington Post.  turns out the GB Packers were fight him over $5,000!  can you believe that?

Adrian Coxson, an undrafted free agent rookie out of Stony Brook, had hoped to catch on with the Green Bay Packers after signing with the team in May. But after getting carted off the Packers’ practice field on Aug. 1 following a huge hit, the wide receiver is now changing his career plans.

Coxson, who suffered a Grade 3 concussion on the third day of training camp in his rookie season, is retiring at the age of 23.

“I’m retiring because I’m still having symptoms and my health is more important to me than the game of football,” Coxson said in a telephone interview with the National Football Post. “It’s been recommended to me by two neurologists and two doctors to retire from football. The next hit to my head could possibly kill me or be life damaging. This last one could be life damaging. It has taken a great toll on me. This concussion was a bad one. A Grade 3 concussion is real serious.”

The Packers released Coxson on Aug. 17, citing “failure to disclose physical condition” as the reason. But Jonathan Herbst, Coxson’s agent, told ESPN.com that they disputed that claim and reached an injury settlement with the team, which also allowed him to keep the $5,000 signing bonus he received earlier this year.

“I think he’s making the right decision,” Herbst told ESPN on Monday. “His health is more important than football.”

Coxson told the National Football Post that he has no regrets.

“I take pride in that, I take pride in being able to function right now from this injury,” he said. “I’m concerned about my health and I’m concerned about how healthy I am and I want to get to as close to 100 percent as I can get. I’m concerned about the outcome of this whole injury. It was a bad one.”

This to me makes is sound like he got a LOT more than 5K. Injury settlements during direct team-related injuries can be in the tens to hundreds of thousands, especially if that injury leaves a player "permanently disabled" (read: retired). The biggest issue is discussing how much potential he had to make an NFL roster and get paid real money. My hope is he walked away with enough money to support his son and get a post-grad degree so he can get a solid job and build a good career.

I am happy SB didnt get the shaft from Toledo, but if they want to start making more $ like JMU makes we need to have a winning season year after year. One win or one lose doesn't make a season, but I did get a chance to watch the WM/SB game on SNY reruns and we just looked awful out on the field. The only player who looked good was Cheesboro. Our Offense, Defense looked like scared PAL kids..

I am expecting a total annihilation on saturday from JMU but our schedule gets easier there after and if we win out, there is a chance we can make the post season and salvage our year, just a chance!!!!!

Ex-Seawolves standout Will Tye made history on Sunday
Tye became the first Stony Brook player to play in an NFL game when he debuted for the Giants against the Bills

STONY BROOK, N.Y. – Former Stony Brook tight end Will Tye made history on Sunday afternoon when he became the first Seawolves product to appear in a game in the National Football League. Tye was signed to the New York Giants’ active roster off of the franchise's practice squad on Saturday.

Tye made his debut in the first quarter and was in on multiple plays. He was also the target of Giants' QB Eli Manning on a passing play in the second quarter.

The Middletown, Conn., native played in 23 games for head coach Chuck Priore and the Seawolves. Tye pulled down 79 catches for 1,015 yards and nine touchdowns in his two seasons at Stony Brook. He also returned 30 punts for 166 yards during his career with the Seawolves.

he did late in the game yes... and on the three catches, the first and third collinsworth mentioned SBU.  good stuff.

of course, donnell caught the late go-ahead TD, but still, the Jints run multiple TEs so there's plenty of room at the table!

Big Time game for Tye.  four catches for 49 yards.  Collingsworth said near the end of the game that he was really impressed with Tye, played multiple positions in the game including fullback, and caught some passes.  hopefully the future is bright for Wil.

Remember Tye transfered from Florida State to SBU; great exposure for the school. Tye technique in pass route was already crafted at Florida he needed to learn how to block as a  TE.

It looked like he is coming along in learning that skill; on a couple plays he missing blocks.

It's a huge opportunity for him w the Giants; long term he needs to be a 2 down or 3 down TE to stay in the NFL.

I do agree Tye was crafted at FSU, but he hardly played in a game in the 2 years he was down there. Most of his playing time came from SB.. But i have to think Tye already had his skills when he got to SB.. Another reason why we need to clean house with most of our coaching staff and start fresh. Lets bring in some senior coaches with some big school experience to teach our recruits some new skills they otherwise would not be getting now. Until that happens SB will be mediocre at best in the CAA for years to come.. I've been preaching this Gospel for years now!!!!!

I was thinking the same thing. Tye was brought in as a backup TE to Daniel fells. Not sure how he will be used in the rotation, but i do see him being used more often now because he is also considered  a Half back!!!

After ‘moving on’ to pursue a career as a cop, Miguel Maysonet is back in the NFL: Blue Waves star signs with Bills

“He was working on a farm, lugging around 50-pound bags of potatoes and then going to the gym after work,” close family friend Tim Hubbard said. “He took the police test so it seemed like he was going to focus on becoming a police officer.”

But he still kept in shape just in case. And everything changed in an instant on Thursday.

Maysonet received a text from the Buffalo Bills. They asked whether he was interested in joining their practice squad as they’ve had a number of running backs go down with an injury.

“I remember him telling me that when he worked out for the New York Jets that Rex Ryan really liked him but couldn’t keep him because they had other needs,” Hubbard said. “I guess he kept his name in the back of his head.”

Maysonet instantly accepted their offer. He flew out as soon as he could. Upon arrival they had him do sprints and after showing that he was still in great shape, they had him sign on the dotted line.

The Bills will be playing in London next week and Maysonet will be joining them.


wow.  a text from the Bills and youre in the UK on tv.

yeah that first drive was some of the best execution ive seen in football... then donnell caught a pass, got stripped, and the whole game turned around.  I couldn't figure out why they totally changed the game plan after the first drive.  they started running Jennings right up the middle and stuffed nearly every time.

im just joe blow here at the keyboard- and the giants are 4 of 5 in super bowls in the last 30 years.  but for the life of me I cannot figure out why they don't go for 8 yards on a 3rd and 7.  I get why the run so many draw plays, because in the gun, it fits into their offense and sets up the pass.  but those literally never work either.  used to see it more when gilbride was in town.

Yeah, I really didn't want to go down that route with comparison to us because I am finished with talking about last week game but yes, that strip play from Donnel  took the wind out of the Offense.. Maybe Will Tye will take Donnel place as the starter? Nah, not yet but if keeps playing good ball he will be a starter next year. Maybe not with the Giants but on another NFL team!

yep, I was alluding to the same.

anyway.  after the donnell strip, the giants got the ball back, and it was subtle but tye made a really nice seal block from a tight right, pulled over to the left side and sealed in the will to open the outside for Jennings on a delay.  Jennings got tackled at the LOS, but still, nice backside seal block.

Just curious. Not sure how contracts works work with the NFL but. If Will Tye turns out to be an asset to the Giants could they sign him to a new contract for next season? It is my understanding when you are drafted out of college you are locked into a team for 3 years, but as a free agent coming off the PS, you are free to leave at the end of the season????? Who cares to shine some light on this... I have very high expectations for Tye and hope  millions are in his future. I am sure SB hopes $$$$$ are in his future, too!!

If he comes back and makes the roster next year he would get the veteran minimum, which would be $525K next season.   He gets $435K this season that is pro-rated to how many games he is on the active roster.  Free agents usually don't get multi year contracts until they prove themselves.

If you notice this kid Ben do spread O; they  do not use TE at all in any of there O plays.  If they go this direction then there will be majoy changes in this team on the OL.

You need TE in the CAA; this kid like to run with the ball & in the CAA the speed of the game much quicker.

He could be damage goods real quick if he does. They already have Carbone who is the same type of QB; i was hoping they would find a kid with a great arm n touch who could plays in pro set.

It would give them options at the QB position.

I wouldn't worry much about who Ben is throwing to in Juco. That would completely change in SB, I hope.. Much depends on the head coach and everything is up in the air right now.

In the CAA you need a Q who can do it all and not one dimensional. He needs to have all his weapons available, too.. He needs to have his TE, WR, RB who can catch in the back field.. Coach P hardly ever uses his RB as receivers and that's a huge problem..

Just look how successful JMU is this season because of Vad Lee. He can throw and if no one is open has the ability to run for big yards. This is the style of play in the CAA these days

I think bringing in Ben is a smart move to keep Carbone on his toes..

Long Island produces some good quality FCS Quarterbacks, but for some reason they don't want to play for SB.. Sayville Varsity Football quarterback, Jack Coan, is a top recruit and has many Div1 offers. I am not sure how hard SB coaches are out trying to get this kid but if I were coach P I would set up camp in front of Coan house to try and recruit him!!!!

This article was written in the Summer,  before the start of this Football season. He is having another record breaking year.

nothing new on Miguel, but more coverage: http://sbstatesman.com/2015/10/19/maysonet-signed-to-bills-practice-squad/

Quote
Kevin Norrell, a former Seawolves wide receiver, also spent time with the Bills in 2013 before being released by the team.

“It’s honestly just a true testament of hard work and staying with it,” Norrell said. “He just worked his tail off and knew someone was going to call. All he had to do was be ready.”

Norrell acknowledged that it may not have been easy for Maysonet to go for over a year without being on a team, but that there is always a goal to work toward.

“Like Miguel just did,” Norrell said. “It’s just work, work, work, work, work and when you get your opportunity, you have to make it pay off.”

A little about Tye from the Cowboys: http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/2015/10/21/scouts-eye-looking-beyond-obvious-names-giants-rematch

Under the Radar: Will Tye, TE
This is an interesting player with a unique skillset. He won’t be like the typical tight ends that the defense has faced during the year. He is really built like a big running back with wide receiver-type hands.
Tye move all over the formation for the Giants – he plays inline, flexed and out of the backfield. He shows initial quickness and a burst off the line. He won’t wow you with fancy moves or smoothness, but he will adjust his routes to put himself in position to receive the ball. Works well in space. Good change of direction and balance. Has the ability to find openings in the secondary. Is always on the move.
Whomever in the secondary draws the assignment of carrying Tye, he will be all over the field. This guy is not the best blocker at the point of attack, but they use him like he is. If you follow him, you will usually be around the ball. You have to be especially ready when he lines up on one side of the formations and goes the opposite direction of the flow.
He’s dangerous when they use him in boots or waggles, and Eli Manning is not afraid to throw him the ball. Has the ability to finish and like Shane Vereen, he needs to be accounted for.

I don't get the criticism of his blocking.  I've watched the last couple of games where he has been assigned to block, and he seems to hold his own.  its not like the D blows past him or he wiffs on the blocks, he engages the defender and seems to hold them off.  take a closer look
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: ddmd on October 24, 2015, 08:35:18 am
When they did the player review on Tye it was what he was bringing to the giants; his blocking could have improved with the right coaching from the giants.  when he was added to the practice sqad that was his weakness coming out of the CAA.

I whatch a few games he made blocks at time & was lost on the field at times; it will take time for him to fully grasp playss & blocks in the NFL. With good coaching he could be a 2 or 3 down TE.

I took me 10 1/2 hours to get to Maine; i wont be doing this drive again...Fly.....  :)

I watched him play last night against Port Jefferson.  This kid is the real deal.  He has a rocket for an arm and is extremely accurate, and he runs like a Deer.

Jack Coan has much better picks then coming to a program that can't win....An athlete wants to be a 4 year starter; but they do not want to come to a program that is in decline.

After watching the game it's very clear  that there is serious issue with the way the offence is managed & plays & the defence keeps making real bad penalties on the field at keys times.

This comes down to mental preperation on both sides. There is no rythem with the O line & the QB;  i thinkk this is due to the current rotation of QB & the current spread blocking. You half to have the right players on the line; we are not getting to the secound blocks on the DB.

We might only get 1 more win this season; we had 3 more injuries yesterday.....not good

I am very concearned about the pogram & what we will have on the field next year; what is currently in place is not working. We have 3 good stud defensive athletes on the field this year & I dont see who going to replace them next year.

As they would say the building is buring & its going to burn to the ground if someone can't put out the flames....

Interesting why you only picked out certain stats and not others..

For instance, why you did not pick out the TWO MISSED INTS our boys should have caught and no doubt the first would have been a pick six and changed the game, or the missed INT by 46.
Interesting that you did not point out for the third game we could not KO the ball without it going out of bounds and allowing the opponent to have a great field position. Our average KO was 48.7 (are you kidding me) and Maine's was 59.

In football you are CONSTANTLY making adjustments the ENTIRE game and not just earlier in the game (because of course the D makes their adjustments) . The problem is our O is playing checkers and our opponents are playing chess, and as much a CB is a nice young man he cant lead the team and the O line just does not know how to block and gets pushed East and West on every play designed to go North and South.

Interesting that you used the GROSS Punting average opposed to the Net since that is what counts. No return is what matters and Inside the 20 and FCs is what its all about-so the difference was 5 yards not 15.That is why the Punter is assigned to the Defensive side of the team. In six games there has been a total of 5 yards returned on 38 punts.

Ochi and Thompson were a non factor with Ochi seeming to take the wrong move on just about every play.

What cost us this game was once again Points off of Turnovers 7-17 and our inability to move the ball downfield.

Post by: guest260 on October 26, 2015, 12:24:31 pm
I think the first thing we need to do is drop the slogans... 4:46? That might be something to put on a shirt, but it has nothing to add to our team when we cant even START. The O line needs a serious upgrade- we have given up 19 sacks in 6 games (and yes both the O-Line and CB share this "stat")

 I know others have rightly stated we have no O depth chart, I would agree with that. Since we have no problem running in two different QB's, then lets use the 3rd string O line- what the worse that can happen? At this stage Coach P wont do this and with the three remaining games (I hate to say it) "lessor" talent than we have, let this O line finish out the season. If they have any pride left inside themselves they will take up this "slogan"... "No more sacks the last three games". Heck, I will even pay for the shirts!

So when one looks at those stats you MUST do a couple of things.

Takeaway the QB who stands in the pocket and wont throw it, or won't run when under pressure. Where is Pat Irwin? Heck, give him a shot. I would do short routes with Bolden, Wingate and others in tight formation (or just in a slot) with routes that take no longer then 3 seconds to compete. CB cannot throw a wide route effectively, and takes too long.  My goodness our O line should be able to at least keep their blocks for that short of period. If the excuse is we don't have any running backs- then just friggin throw the ball!  The second play selection is so poor its not even funny. Second and one has been 3 and 2 so many times its crazy!
With Ochi and Thompson we need more stunts up front and more blitz's and maybe that will help them-but they just don't like they have that swagger they had last year.  The Penalties kill us because our guys lack the discipline and the coaches don't reinforce unacceptable behavior on the field. We average 8 game (for you Math freaks that 2 a quarter) and the refs know it and so does the opposing teams.

As to the Kicker his steps on just about EVERY KO are so inconsistent and shows he has lacked training that needs to be done at this level.

Finally, as you stated we all know the answers and it starts (and ends) with Leadership. Coach P just does not have the PROVEN Leadership at this level. If SH has not started a search committee discussion at this time, shame on him. Spend some serious cash to find SOMEONE who wants the challenge of turning a program around. There are plenty of coaches out there who like this type of challenge. The question will be finding someone who WANTS to do it.

NYstateofmind. You summed it up perfectly.. I really do hope SH is doing a national search as we speak.. SB will have to open their wallets though if they want to bring in some higher level talent with a strong background in recruiting. I also hope that indoor workout facility gets up and running in a hurry. That will help with recruiting.

"I would do short routes with Bolden, Wingate and others in tight formation (or just in a slot) with routes that take no longer then 3 seconds to compete."

these are exactly the types of routes they try to run a majority of the time right now. and you can see the intense pressure the QBs are under.  they get hit with one or two step drops to make these short routes.

Post by: guest260 on October 26, 2015, 04:48:49 pm
I do not believe they have tried this with Irwin. My point was that CB cannot do it in the past games I have watched the WR's are moving far too close to the sidelines. I would take Cal D or another TE (of course we have no FB or if we did I would try the FB screen with CD or DM the other 260LB standing on the sideline) and blow up the DB to free the pass. That I don't think has happened- with PI as QB but I could be wrong.

Maybe the WR's are running the wrong routes so I don't want to be too hard on CB, but the out pass is not one of his strongest passes.

I would say go with a no huddle- but doubt our O line could handle this and if they could would at least FORCE the opponents to slow down a bit. What is the harm to change something that has not worked all year? You know the old saying of... the definition of insanity quote!

NYstateofmind, your comments are great ones.  our coaches just don't want to run those types of routes with our receivers.  I think our TE patterns have been very successful, we have a few big gainers this season, but they don't run those enough.  for more on TE pass routes, maybe DDMD can add some clarity. Overall, I don't think its the receivers running the wrong routes, its the limited number of routes that the receivers run, and that is not the QB fault, rather the play calling.  how many times can they run that short route to Boulden?  over and over, right?  I am sure the team would love to run more sophisticated double move routes, or whatever, but then it comes back to the play calling.  and we need pass protection to run deeper routes. 
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: ddmd on October 26, 2015, 08:53:27 pm
Couldn't agree more Bigfan....They do not run effective plays. The QB can get rid of the ball in 2 secounds if they call the right play. Why not go to a read offence; when they stack the line & blitz they should use a quick post or slant......

They should use double TE sets it give you so many more effective pass plays; why is there not a full back. SBU was real effective using a full back in the past; helps w extra blocker in the back field or coming of the line & block  LB to open up a seam.

How many time do you see twins or tripps; not much. I do not like pulling the OT to block on the opposite side run; it leave the edge wide open for the LB or DE to come in on a back side tackle.....which hapens alot.

We need to stay w a starter & only use the back up on designed option plays......

He wasn’t yet sure what he would do with the ball. Perhaps give it to his mother, he said. Or keep it for himself.

Out in the 631, there’s probably a trophy case that would be willing to accept it.

When told of Tirico’s call, Tye joked that he can no longer visit Stony Brook.

“Well, there it is, I just set off another frenzy,” he said. “I can’t go there now. I’m not going to be able to leave.”

At some point, he will.

“That’s good,” Tye said of the publicity he is giving his school. “I can go back there and show that you can do anything. I’m glad I could represent them.”

I agree 100% BFF. Coach P job is on the line and if he has another losing season, I'd expect him to get the ax..We need better players on Offense and If scholarships are yanked, i'm sorry yank it and open a slots for better athletes so we get back to the winning ways again.

Agree have to get better.. But in their desperation they're  selling tomorrow for today. The reputation they are gaining is making it hard to compete with other CAA schools. Using transfers is fine but it hurts team chemistry and sbu football shows it on the field .. They're not a tight unit and are unable to rally late in games. The kids who lose their scholarships could've went  to other div 1 schools, but now have to sit a year making it unlikely. That causes a lot of ill- will . If they recruit better and more thoroughly you won't have this problem. P should develope his players. Don't pull scholarships. That is bad business and is sewing the seeds for future bad seasons.. Which is what we're in the middle of now..New Hampshire developes players and doesn't pull scholarships.. And every year they are good . Not a five Win team like us

Post by: CTWolfie on December 31, 2015, 11:38:57 am
Agreed Morgan.  The other related issue, but sort of the flipside of the coin, is that when scholarship money is given to kids out of high school who wind up not playing up to the level that was anticipated, it prevents the program from being able to keep their word and reward those players who show up as walk-ons (preferred or otherwise) and wind up substantially contributing on the field.  Those kids are assured that if/when they make substantial contribution on the field they will be rewarded with scholarship $.  They have to earn it, which is probably how it should be.  But, once earned, the program needs to keep up its end of the bargain and reward those kids who earned it with their efforts.  This doesn't always happen.
Bottom line, the program would really help itself by doing a better job of identifying scholarship worthy talent at the beginning of the process.
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: sbufan on December 31, 2015, 12:46:09 pm
I don't necessarily like the practice, but I think it's relatively common for coaches to pull scholarships from players that aren't developing. A lot of schools approach scholarships as a one year commitment that you have to earn the following year. I have it on pretty good authority that coach Brown at Albany pulls scholarships from athletes who aren't developing, and it's worked out alright for them.

A case might be made that he's doing them a favor. If they want to play football and it's evident to coach P this isn't the right level for them, why string them along and waste their eligibility on the bench.

Is Will Tye aka Baby Gates the Next Antonio Gates?

Most would agree that he’s a guy the Giants can win with and will only get better next season. What’s so likable about Tye is his confidence. He believes he can be like Beckham, in that he wants the ball with a chance to win the games in the waning minutes. He even stated in that same interview that he loves to watch Antonio Gates.

He’s become Eli’s go to guy when Beckham isn’t open. And what’s more, he’s become a dependable dude in the red zone, where the Giants have struggled so greatly.

Tye has become a pleasant surprise and a starter at a position riddled by injuries. His 37 catches for 397 yards are the fourth-best receiving numbers on the team and tops among rookie tight ends in this year’s class. He’s also scored a pair of touchdowns.

Tye said he’ll spend some time training at the Giants’ facility in the next few weeks, then will split time between New Jersey and his home in Connecticut. He’ll be watching closely as changes are made to the team — including the coaching staff and front office — that might affect his future with the Giants.

from the Oakland Raiders website today:


Prospects Showcase Skills in College All-Star Games

East-West Shrine Game

University of Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams led the West squad to a 29-9 victory over the East in the annual East-West Shrine Game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. Florida's Brian Poole took an interception off Western Kentucky's Brandon Doughty 98 yards for a score to give the East at 9-0 lead. Adams then threw three touchdown passes to three different receivers including a 93-yard strike to Purdue wide receiver Danny Anthrop.

For the East squad, defensive end Victor Ochi jumped off the screen as he routinely beat whoever was in at left tackle for the West right off the snap. He recorded a sack and an impressive chase and tackle on Adams as he showed relentlessness. Florida linebacker Anthony Harrell also picked off a Doughty pass, and was involved in Poole's interception.

I'm pretty confident he will get drafted now after the amazing press he has gotten at the Shrine Game. My guess is 5th to 7th round but I wouldn't be surprised if he works out well than he could sneak into the 4th round. Pass rushers are a premium in this league. I will be elated if he gets drafted at all as this will be a boon for this program as well as Long Island football in general.

His best fit in the NFL will be as a 3-4 OLB- as a Jets fan, I'd love to have an explosive edge rusher like him on 3rd down. The rest of his game needs developing (coverage, etc) but he's got the tools to succeed.

Initially, I was thinking 7th round, and most probably would be signed as an undrafted FA.  but not any more.  I think 5 round is quite possible.  not sure how many other guys there are out there for edge pass rushing.

I'm pretty confident he will get drafted now after the amazing press he has gotten at the Shrine Game. My guess is 5th to 7th round but I wouldn't be surprised if he works out well than he could sneak into the 4th round. Pass rushers are a premium in this league.

sounds a bit like what the ny football giants did with kiwanuka- a bona fide DL from boston college, eventually found himself on the edge rushing, mostly on 3rds and standing.

Yes, we need a big time playmaker on the O line and this kid will help. I am not overly excited though about this kid being the next Big Mike after watching his videos from High School. He's very slow off the line and has horrible speed, however. He is big and strong and should def help with holding back pass rushers. Still a great find by coach P, finally!!!!!!!

You can't teach size like that. He'll only be a sophomore too so we have a few years with the kid.

Nice use of that open scholarship. Huge move in the right direction.

O lineman do run when they need to block downfield for a "run up the gut" play coach P is so famous for but, I really like this catch as I mentioned in my earlier post. He will be a instant help to the line!!!!!!

Again O-lineman do not run, they pull. It has nothing to do with straight ahead speed. Quick feet and getting off the ball fast is what counts. My point is you don't worry about 40 times for O-line.

I agree, this kid is a big plus for us on the O line.  with Connor Davis going back to TE next season, we need a big kid to step in.  too bad he wont be on campus til the summer.

Post by: ddmd on April 30, 2016, 09:40:54 pm
They will give Ochi a shot at OLB & coming offthe edge; & the ravens want spped on th edge. Suggs is coming off his 2nd achilles tear & they will need depth on the edge.

 i look forward to seeing him this summer.
Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: BigFatFan on May 02, 2016, 11:41:05 am
Ochi will need to learn how to play in space and in pass coverage.  neither of which he did at SB, he only rushed from the edge.  Bates from Maine on the other hand was a LB, and has experience in pass coverage.  I think that's what made the difference of him getting drafted vs Ochi not getting drafted.

Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: ddmd on July 28, 2016, 09:19:50 pm
Big man carbone will be the starter if he stays healthy; they might use a 2 QB rotation if he cannot correct 2 blaring issues.

1. When rolling left or right he has a hard time throwing the ball to the opposite side of the field; improve footwork.
2. Forcing throw into his 1st read; got to be quicker in making 2nd & 3rd read & if  in doubt run or throw the ball away. To many pics last season 5 in 1 game alone.

he has several good healthy weapons on the field this season.....

Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: ddmd on July 31, 2016, 09:17:44 pm
The biggest thing that i see if this team will have success this year is at QB; three things had to be corrected & if not it could be a long season.

Carbone:

1. Footwork
2. Ability to read an OPEN receiver
3. Mobility & throwing the ball to opposite side of the field.

QB 2nd  option we don't have anyone currently on the team with game time experience; teams will be gunning to get to the QB his year.

I think the rest of the team looks solid and stronger then last year; might have issue with rush of the edge & we half to wait & see who steps up.

Randy Pringle is for the 2017 Class he's one of the top CB's in NYC

As far as QB goes it's very simple every year in the USA all of the DI Colleges bring in at least 2 scholarship players and than the ones who don't qualify go the JC route also players who feel their DI QB's go to Prep School for a year so that leaves 2 Star QB's, late bloomers and transfers for the DIAA schools such as SBU. They really thought they had their stud QB with Ben Holmes and they would groom Tyquell Fields behind him. Once they knew Holmes wasn't going to make it around the June time frame they put in extra efforts to improve Carbone and Irwin so that he could lead this team but according to the OC/QB Coach they are not rotating QB's in 2016. Now that can all change but that is the plan right now.

They have had in to the SBU on day prospect camps at least a couple of dozen really good HS QB's for the 2017 Class that they are recruiting but that's not going to help in 2016

I wonder if this signals UD's FBS ambition. Otherwise why would Rocco move lateral? MAC and AAC will be very eager to get them. They have FBS ready stadium and can attract large crowd. Have football history and tradition. If there is any northeast FCS program left that is ready for next step, it's Delaware.

Post by: Campi47 on December 13, 2016, 09:27:01 pm
The reason Danny Rocco left Richmond for Delaware is the following; The AD at Richmond is not a football guy, Richmond has a smaller stadium (8500 seats versus 25000), there are 3500 students at Richmond while there are over 30,000 at Delaware and the main reason he wants to coach a DI program and felt if he can turn the Delaware program around more opportunities will present themselves than continuing to stay at Richmond.

A Stony Brook note as of today 12 players have committed to the Class of 2017 including a very good WR from New Jersey (I can't give his name out at this time) as soon as the Coaches tell me it's okay I will release all the names of all the recruits.

I'm sure you're closer to it than I am, but I just had some questions about your list.  I like to take a look-see at these recruits once they commit, but in searching many of them out I couldn't find where they announced committing to SBU (e.g. Stanbury, Wilks, Nekhet, Reddock, etc.).  In addition, James Tunstall's Twitter feed indicates that he committed to UCONN. I usually check Twitter, Facebook, 24/7 Sports and Rivals.com, but have had no luck in these cases.  Can you help me out?

Any recruits looking at signing & coming to SBU to play D should not be mislead; recruits deserve the truth before signing. 

The SBU staff needs to be upfront & honest when  recruiting.


This was a big lost for the program; but a great opportunity for Hemp.

If you believe that Coaches are honest with their recruits you are very wrong. I can guarantee you throughout College Football as soon as Signing Day is over  many Coaches will move to other programs it happens every year that's why when I talk to HS Football Players which I do a lot I tell them if you pick a College because of the Coach there is a good chance at some point in your time at the College that Coach will leave especially DI

Coach Hemp has decided to leave the SBU program prior to national signing day; they should inform the recruit before signing.

You should not misleading that recruit & his family ; you need to keep the ethics in this game.

If the coach decides to leave after national signing day that is a total idffent issue.

Do the right thing......

I totally agree with you SBUFootball.  An absolute embarrassment to the program if in fact they are not being upfront and truthful with commits & recruits regarding the fact that Coach Hemphill has moved on (congrats to Coach Hemphill by the way - he earned it and the program was lucky to have him for as long as it did). They need to name a new DC asap. I would be surprised if this came as a shock to Coach P; he had to know Hemphill was a rising star likely to be lured away by a bigger program, the only surprise being that Hemphill didn't move on before now. 
If they are concerned that the news of Hemphill's departure might influence some decisions, then rather than pretend it has not happened and cross their fingers hoping nobody finds out about it, they should reach out to the current commits and those still being recruited to let them know the hole has been filled (presumably from within) and that the SBU defense will continue to be dominant under the new leadership and assure the player (especially those targeted for the defensive side of the ball) that he is still wanted by, and important to, the program.

They have already begun the interview process as I mentioned in a previous post the NCAA Football Conference takes place every January so when SBU went there they knew they needed a DC and started putting feelers out.

I just spoke to an SBU Coach who said Coach Hemp leaving will not effect this recruiting class. The Coach who recruits the player is the Coach who has the recruiting area then the position coach recruits the player so the Coordinator usually doesn't get involved to the end of the process.

If any of you guys has a son who wants to play College Football pick a College where your son can be successful in the classroom, have a great campus life and don't assume anything when it comes to the football team because I have seen too many players give up the sport after only one year in College

My boy will be playing Varsity football this coming season for Ward melville. He played on Offense and Defense for JV and beyond. This year he will probably transition to Linebacker because Three Village has some pretty big boys on the line with the likes of the  Kutchman brothers and others. 

He did tell me though he would not be interested in playing for SB, if giving an opportunity or even a scholarship. SB tution for off campus is around $7500 a year so cost is not a factor.

I am probably getting ahead of myself talking about scholarship for football with my boy, but i will respect his decision regardless where he goes

On the DC search when Lyle took over 3 years ago as the DC he didn't install the current defense it was installed by the guy he replaced and the reason he got the job was his familiarity with that defense. Coach P wants the next DC to be someone who can run this type of defense and then just tweak it like Lyle did

I was going to say this. I wish coach Hemphill the best and thank him for his time at Stony Brook, but I'm not too concerned about the loss for Stony Brook. He's running the same system as Nevaiser . Theres been a lot of great talent at Stony Brook on the defensive side of the ball and that'll be true next year as well.

I actually remember talking to some players when Hemphill was promoted and they thought it was mistake. They were wrong obviously, but I just to emphasize that we don't necessarily need someone with a fancy resume. I wouldn't hate promoting someone on the current staff again.

My biggest concern with Hemp leaving was with recruiting. Would his departure hurt future recruiting.. If McIntyre can continue recruiting really good defensive players like we had in had past, then Hemp leaving will fade quickly and we won't skip a beat..This was my biggest concern all along..

Shame it's Towson next week though. Not that I'd want our schedule to be any tougher, but if it were say, reigning national champion JMU coming to campus next weekend, I'm sure the game would definitely get a shout-out or be highlighted. JMU had their perfect storm when they got Gameday there a couple years ago. No big top 25 matchups that weekend and they had Richmond at home in what was a top 10 FCS matchup.

Can you say where you heard this from? I know SBU was cutting some academic programs. I'm guessing this is coming from the state? I'm not sure I buy that this would only be for two years. If our budget is roughly 30M for athletics, then we can expect a 1.8M cut roughly. I think we should just drop Men's soccer (easiest sport to drop), and then maybe add another buy game against a P5 school?? Rutgers, Syracuse, or certainly someone in the SEC probably has an open date somewhere. If we did those things we'd be fine.

Most of the starters on this year team are seniors, except for one, I believe. His name is Billy Tretor, OL. He's a junior and a beast. My son is a junior and they usually play the juniors in the 4th quarter. He plays both O line and D line.. He probably wont play this game against William Floyd, unless one of the line starters go down, god for bid!!!!

The average weight on the O line this year is 285 pounds. WM has some big boys up front and they are mostly seniors..

The Kutchma brothers are very interesting prospects as I met them at the skills camp I ran last year they come from a family of 5 boys all one bigger than the other however the parents are not sports minded so they were never really were exposed to the world of personal trainers or going for college visits or sending out video to college coaches however having said that the SBU coaches feel this was a no brainer to bring them both in and get them into the weight room and see how they develop.

By the way SBU is working on bringing another 7 top LI players for next years class that have all been offered or about to get offered.

While I'm glad we're ranked....

we really should be in the mid teens and there's no way in hell goddamn New  Hampshire should still be ranked ahead of us or even ranked at all. Same for 4-4 Villanova. Richmond was dropped from the rankings after we beat them, but we're still behind a New Hampshire team we beat even though we have a better record?? People can try to poke holes in our resume, but there isn't anything on their resumes that warrant them having a higher ranking than us. Beating 0-6 GA Southern that just fired their coach isn't anything to write home about.

The Coaches Poll is a load of garbage, the STATS poll is the only legitimate one in my mind and the one that's given us more respect from the start anyhow.

Totally correct. The Darlings of the CAA will always get the benefit of the doubt. This proves SB needs 8 wins to make the playoffs. It must be something about the SUNY schools they dont like. UA got screwed last year, even beating UB who has a better record then GA Southern... Unbelievable

Sanity has returned!! We're right back where we should be.

I think our highest ever ranking was #6 heading into the final weekend of the regular season in 2012. I can't see us getting that high, but top 10 isn't out of the question if we win out.

We'd definitely host it, but I'm thinking bigger. If we win out, we're 9-2 in the CAA with at least a tie for 2nd place. Assuming an Elon loss to JMU and what happens elsewhere, we could wind up in the playoff committee's top 8, get a bye, and then host a second round game at Lavalle first weekend of December. We'd need quite a bit to happen in order to get that though. Namely teams ahead of us like Wofford, UCA, Elon, Eastern Washington, South Dakota St. Illinois St. etc. to lose games so we can get high enough in the committee's mind to be worthy of a seed. There's a chance though. Alot of those MVFC teams still have games against each other plus NDSU.

http://www.collegesportsmadness.com/fcs-football/bracketology

More likely if we win out (or even lose one, doesn't really change much) we'd host a playoff game. Given how the seeds have a geographic component to it, we'd likely play one of the Auto-bids from the NEC(Duquesne), Patriot(Colgate), or Big South(Kennesaw St./Monmouth). We could also potentially get another CAA team or an MVFC team depending on how many get in which is yet to be seen. We could be looking at a Northern Iowa, Villanova or maybe even a Richmond rematch here at Lavalle.

That's good to know. Not that I am wishing, but it seems we can afford to lose one and still host one. That's a nice cushion to have. Players can approach next three games without any pressure. But must not lose focus though.

Stony Brook LT Parris suffers season-ending injury

By CRAIG HALEY
STATS FCS Senior Editor

(STATS) - Stony Brook has lost All-America left tackle Timon Parris for the remainder of the season after the senior suffered a fractured fibula during the team's win at Richmond last weekend.
Parris has been projected to become Stony Brook's first-ever NFL draft choice next spring, although the injury may set back that possibility. Small school draft evaluator Josh Buchanan projected Parris for the fifth round last week.
The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Parris had started all 41 games of his career. He was named to the STATS FCS All-America second team after his junior season and was on the preseason first team this year.
Jonathan Haynes, a redshirt junior who spent two seasons at West Virginia, is expected to start at left tackle when Stony Brook hosts Albany on Saturday.
The 14th-ranked Seawolves are 6-2 overall and 5-1 in CAA Football behind James Madison and Elon.

That'd be pretty crappy, but not impossible. If we win out though that's less likely. The seeds have a geography component in it, but I'd hope if we're 9-2 we don't get screwed like that. We got bracket ****** enough when we got Kentucky in the NCAAT.

If we win out, would be criminal to have to play JMU in the 2nd round. I'll take a playoff berth to start but this team has me wanting more. Carbone's tremendous growth from last year to this year has me greedy. We have to make some noise while we have Ray Bolden who I think should get a shot at the next level.

For now, let's just take it a game at a time. Let's take care of Albany first who have had tight losses to Elon and Richmond amongst others. Not sure of what to make of the blowout loss to URI though. We should definitely take this one.

Maybe the reason Tye isn't seeing much action with the Jets is that he's actually with the NE Patriots now!!  Ha! Ha!  You can be forgiven, though, Chairman.  He's not been seeing action with them either.  It's a shame, because I think he could be a contributor.

O.K.  O.K.  I know you guys are going to jump all over me!!!  But, I'm disappointed that Joe Carbone was not recognized in any way for his performance this year for any of the post-season awards.  I was certainly no fan of his last season, but if you are truly objective you've got to think that he deserved some recognition this year. 
His leadership and growth alone make him deserving.

Look at Carbone's TD to Int. ratio, his QB rating, total yards passing, the effect of his leadership under pressure, etc.  I rest my case! 

You've earned some respect, Joe--no matter what the pundits say.

Are you talking about the all CAA awards?? If so then I totally agree. I'd say he's worthy of at least an honorable mention if not a most improved player award. Last year to this year is a night and day difference for Joe and I really think he should recivee recognition for that.

I also think Beverette was way more impactful and made way too many plays to only be third team all CAA.

Five wins again would be unacceptable in my mind. Six wins and I think we should keep Coach P. Very reasonable expectation given how many players we're losing.

Keep in mind, we have a very tough schedule next year, but we have to be able to reach 6 wins. There's never an easy game in this conference, but you have to find ways to win.

In my opinion, the following games are teams we should beat and are must wins:

Bryant, Fordham, Towson, Rhode Island, Albany - most of these are on the road, but we need to win them none the less.

To reach six wins then, we must pick up one game, just one game against one of these teams below:

Air Force, Richmond, Villanova, New Hampshire, James Madison, Delaware

Yes next year will be a rebuilding year largely, but if Coach P and his staff are to get contract extensions, they've got to be able to win one of these games and get to six wins (assuming we win all the others which isn't a given honestly, winning two from this group would be fantastic though).  You can't tell me the talent we're bringing into this program isn't good enough to beat a single one of these teams.

In no way shape or form am I posting this to dig Carbone. Carbone will finish out his senior year next season as our QB at SB. But watch the video of our incoming QB Freshman, Joshua Zamot.  I dont remember the last time SB had a true, dual option QB.. This kid is going to be putting a lot of pressure on Tyquel Fields after next season when Carbone is gone... I just hope he is as good at SB as he is in high school... You just never know!!!

I'm really high on Danny Sanchez. He looks raw, but he has huge and accurate arm. I especially like that he looks like the opposite of Priore's typical QB recruit. Sanchez is a pro-style pocket passer rather than a dual threat, so maybe it's a slight change in philosophy for coach P.

Coach P teams always had decent  defense and running game. If he can add a good aerial game to his scheme, watch out CAA. But he needs a good QB for that.

I'm not one to make excuses following a terrific year but that oddball early James Madison playoff matchup was just bad luck. New Hampshire's playoff schedule, in contrast, was much more favorable (they finished at 12).

I get that, we definitely got screwed (and JMU did too on paper if you look at it), but I'm of the opinion that if you want to win the national title, you're going to have to play and beat some really good teams eventually. Either you beat those teams, or beat the teams that did beat those teams, so there's truly no easy out if you ask me. You'll have to play the great teams eventually. Early or late, doesn't make a huge difference.

Definitely, I only meant that in terms of our eventual ranking (and whether we might have beaten that 2012 ranking of 9)...I think New Hampshire was helped by their playoff schedule (in terms of their end of season  national ranking). Not saying it matters much at all in any case. Great season either way.

Did they quit or are these two new positions SB is looking to ad. I know there is a hiring freeze currently in affect, so my guess is they both left..

Interesting this late in the season with a coaching change

This is fabulous news for these kids. My only concern is. Once again Stony Brook football does not make an NFL draft. Wagner even participates in the festivities. I think this has everything to do with our current head coach.. I know some people will want to lynch me and thats fine. I say it as I see it... SB needs to clean house and bring in some popular and well respected coaches so we get better players who wants to make it to the next level and who got snubbed by some of the power 5 conferences.. Coach P does not have that kind of following..

NFL teams dont take us serious enough to warrant a draft pick. But they will try us out in UF or invite. Not much to lose if a player doesnt perform to their expectations..Bring in a high caliber offensive coordinator with ties to Ohio, Pittsburgh, NC, SC or even Florida, then maybe some star players will travel north and wan to play for Stony Brook.

all good points. I was sitting with the Nolans after the Spring Game and asked them why they chose SB especially all the way from GA. I did not know this but their son had two offers from SEC schools and three others.

They said their son wanted to be a chemical molecular engineer and SBU had a very good one and the others did not. They said on one home visit the SEC HEAD COACH asked him why he did not to play for a national Championship contention for the next four years. They said their told him "Coach I am focused not on the next 40 years just not the next four". They said he is graduating with honors in May.

They also said that Coach TT was the second reason (and Coach P) had not even contacted him after his visit  (which should also tell us something). And yes, I understand to might be a budgeting issue- but not even a phone call afterwards from the HC?

Its kind of a shame that we don't highlight these kids during the Season- and only focus on the new kids coming in as to why these choose SB. Granted the new kids are important in the marketing of the program- but one would think to ask the upperclassman (not just the Captains) why they chose SB.

There are 32 NFL Teams and all 32 were on campus throughout the whole season and all 32 showed up for Pro Day

It was plain and simple if Paris was healthy he would have been drafted ahead of Senat from Wagner also when you get drafted in each round has slotted amount of dollars when you sign like Paris did there is no slotted amount so in some cases your better off being a FA especially if you get drafted in the later rounds

As far as the coaches influence on players getting drafted when Joe Gardi ran the Hofstra program he was a Pro guy and most of his players went the FA route to the NFL only a couple I believe were drafted and he coached for at least 9 years

As far as Coaches go the last 6 or so assistant coaches that left went to an FBS Program for a better position and these schools include Notre Dame, Army, Penn State, Ohio State, Miami Fla., Wake Forest

all good points. I was sitting with the Nolans after the Spring Game and asked them why they chose SB especially all the way from GA. I did not know this but their son had two offers from SEC schools and three others.

They said their son wanted to be a chemical molecular engineer and SBU had a very good one and the others did not. They said on one home visit the SEC HEAD COACH asked him why he did not to play for a national Championship contention for the next four years. They said their told him "Coach I am focused not on the next 40 years just not the next four". They said he is graduating with honors in May.

They also said that Coach TT was the second reason (and Coach P) had not even contacted him after his visit  (which should also tell us something). And yes, I understand to might be a budgeting issue- but not even a phone call afterwards from the HC?

Its kind of a shame that we don't highlight these kids during the Season- and only focus on the new kids coming in as to why these choose SB. Granted the new kids are important in the marketing of the program- but one would think to ask the upperclassman (not just the Captains) why they chose SB. So while the coaching staff might need an upgrade, the marketing "staff" could use one as well.

Excellent insight. I did not know that. Goes to show that academics are just as strong of a recruiting tool as being good on the field. This coaching staff has dropped the ball in many ways over the years if they're really not calling recruits after they committed. The one in a blue moon 10 win season like last year makes it too easy to gloss over the failures the coaching staff has made prior. Don't forget we couldn't crack five wins for four seasons prior and that it took a team chock full of super super seniors (6th year guys) to do it.

Agreed, this last season may have been an outlier due to the "super super seniors." The only other successful seasons under Priore were dropped on him like a gift from Hofstra. If SB doesn't finish at least in the top half of the CAA this year, the writing on the wall just got clearer.

We graduate a ton of people and the schedule is much tougher this year. My expectation is six wins. If we can hit that and are competitive in the losses, maybe Priore can make a case to stick around, but anything less and he needs to be shown the door. I'm tired of this five win BS. We should be winning at least seven games each year and knocking on the door of the playoffs annually. No reason to only win 5 games a season with the kind of talent we have in this program, even in the CAA.

I think we are all hoping for a great year. I saw some nice plays at the Spring Game. 17- Marshall I believe will be JC's new "ray B". Made some nice catches and runs great routes.  Saw NC hit that 49 yard FG that could have been good from 52 and the RB's had some nice gains.

The only "negative" I saw were on the snaps from center. I counted 4 or 5 really low and poor outside snaps and I know this is still the Spring game- but gesshhhhh, maybe Detorie was out?

I agree. If SH gives Priore an extension on his contract you could pretty much expect the same every season. I've been an advocate for years to bring in new talent in the head coaching department and I still stick with that assessment.

At Saturday's Spring game there were over 200 HS Juniors in attendance from all over the east coast and by their tweets they were very impressed with the coaching staff and facilities so Coach P is got to be doing something right and there will be 2 or 3 transfers coming in soon from FBS Schools.

WR Marshall Ellick is a graduate transfer who came to us from Temple, and he has quickly established himself as a superior route runner with excellent hands. After the loss of Ray Bolden and Harrison Jackson, we needed an experienced playmaker. It looks like we found one in Marshall.

CB Jabari Reddock is a young guy who is making a statement this spring. The secondary was hit hard by graduation, but the redshirt freshman from Maryland is proving to be a major piece in the secondary.

No the players I'm talking about are not here as in previous years players do their Spring Football and then once it's over and players realize they're not part of their current teams plans they transfer out and go to another school. I believe 1 or 2 of SBU players announced they are transferring in the last couple of days and Coach P has picked up players in the past from FBS Schools who are looking to move on that's how we got OL Myles Zimmerman 2 years ago. I would not be surprised shortly to see a linemen or two transfer in.

FYI: I checked a couple of days ago re: the status of SBU BB alumni re: their shots at sticking with an NFL team this coming season.  Here's what I was able to find out:

The following players are apparently no longer affiliated with any NFL teams:  V. Ochi, R. Bolden, C. Davis, S. Bedell.  It seems a shame in many of the cases.   :(

The following players remain attached to NFL teams in some capacity, and hopeful   still have some chance of hanging on:  W. Tye (Patriots), C. Cooper (Colts), T. Parris (Redskins), T. Beverette (Bengals).  GO SEAWOLVES!!  8)

Not SBU related specifically, but beginning in fall 2019 (https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/38224992_10160608951840371_5319115918612103168_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=119c2ad026825e4f2706ced7199ad551&oe=5BC71634) JMU will offer full cost of attendance scholarships in all of its sports. FCoA allows schools to give athletes stipends that in theory are supposed to cover miscellaneous costs like travel, school supplies, and things of that nature, but usually wind up boiling down to essentially pocket money for the students. I've seen numbers between 2-6k per year per athlete thrown around at several schools.

JMU I believe is the first school in the CAA to do this, and now that they're doing it, other CAA schools will likely match it in order to remain competitive. JMU has their eyes on the FBS, but as long as they're here, this will give them yet another leg up over us on the recruiting front.

It looks like yesterday was just a bad day all around for SBU football.  Neither Tyrice Beverette (Bengals) nor Timon Parris (Redskins) made the 53-man team cut with their respective teams.  They'll both be eligible for the practice squads if the teams decide they want them.  Will Tye (Patriots) was placed on IR, and was not claimed by any other team.  It's unclear what will happen next with Will.


So, unfortunately, at this juncture there are no Seawolves alumni on NFL active rosters.

When your offense is anemic this is what happens and is honestly what I expected to happen if we weren't able to move the ball and control the clock. The defense did well given they were on the field the whole game.

Rhode Island will be ranked next week and this win IMO cements the CAA as the best conference in the FCS this year. They usual teams that are active bye weeks (Elon and URI) are good now, meaning nobody is safe in this conference anymore. Reminds me of the SEC 3-4 years ago when almost every team was ranked at one point or another.

Stony Brook favored by 23.5 versus Bryant.

I don't think we cover that spread. Historically we play Bryant close even though we should blow them out. I predict we win, but only by 10-14 points. Hopefully I'm wrong, we blow them out, and look good doing it.

We'll be in for a run up the middle every play type of game given the weather conditions. Hopefully we have enough of a size advantage this year that doing so every play doesn't pose a problem.

Buffalo pulls out a close one on the road against Temple today. Their first 2-0 start to a season since going FBS in 1999. Ohio was the favorite in the MAC east but has looked shaky this season so far. Buffalo could be in store for a special season on their end. Definitely keep a close eye on them down the stretch here.

I don't mind the piece. It was a student stating his opinion.

I do worry about the game long term, and what changes if any could be made to keep the game around. That's something the sport at all levels will have to deal with. You're already seeing a steep decline in participation in the sport among affluent families who don't want their children developing CTE.

Good article and very true. My son, who is a senior in HS for WM, tore his ACL in the very first game against Sachem North. His season is done and so is his football carrier. He is set for surgery this coming Tuesday. He will probably have aches and pains in that knee for life. All for what. Hitting and tackling someone you dont know?. Was it worth it. Is it worth it. Well, for my son it was worth it and he would do it all over again if given a chance.

While I do have pain every day because along the way I developed Arthritis however I workout everyday doing something. For my knee I got a PRP shot and my knee feels better than when I was 30 (I'm now 72) and I go to at least 3 HS or College Football games a week plus my grand children's games during the week.

I tell this to all of you because if you stay active the pain is very livable.

Thanks, Campi47.

I appreciate you giving my son information with football camps around the Island. He did go to a few of them and he improved on his defensive game a ton. This was going to be his break out year at WM, and his coaches were really excited about his improvement at the DE position this year. It really is unfortunate, Buy hay, my son was asked. if given a chance would he play football again, he said YES..

He is currently going through pre-op physical therapy at Advanced PT in Setauket, on Bell Mead Rd. and his surgery is scheduled for this coming Tuesday with DR. Penna. Let's see how it goes with Advanced PT post surgery. If he doesn't like them or if his improvement is not going as planned, we'll check out Noth Island.

Shawn's weekly blog is  a good way to gain insight into where he wants to take athletics .  So  Saturday the blue jerseys return  with red pants and helmets pretty  cool .

Eh, we'll see how they look tomorrow with the red helmet and pants, but I didn't really like the look of the blue jersey last year. I thought I would, but I just didn't. Black has been played out to death by every team for years, so I think a dark gray alternate like they've got at Washington State would be pretty cool for us.

Just saw an interesting story in Newsday on-line LIU Post is going to merge all of their athletic programs with the Brooklyn campus and begin move up to DI including football which will play in the FCS starting in 2019. The football stadium will be upgraded however the one stumbling block will be if the town ordinance will be lifted to allow them to play night games.

This could effect SBU with recruiting because they have programs such as teaching and athletic training which SBU doesn't have

At one time SBU head a Physical Education Department which they got rid of and they also had a Teaching Department which they got rid of these are two areas which attract athletes to. CW Post has these which could cause problems for recruiting that type of athlete.

Post and Merrimack are both moving up to The Northeast Conference that we used to be part of.

They also had an Athletic Training Program   which was a 4 year program which they dropped also about two years ago.  Our former hoops player Jacob Petras  was one of the last to get his degree in .  Big market for those kids at the college level and pro level .  You graduated as an Licensed athletic trainer and NY State EMT all in one.

That academic and program angle was one I had not thought of when I first heard the news. On the whole though, we're in the CAA, and they're in the NEC. Additionally, despite them being private, SBU is the more well regarded school overall.


I'm not jumping for joy over the news of no longer being Long Island's only division 1 football program, but I'm not all that worried. We're still in the premier football conference in the region for the FCS. LIU is a transitioning school from D2 and will be playing in an inferior conference. Only thing I really think of this is that they might make a decent backfill for us in the CAA when the day comes that we go FBS.

I saw that. Good for them.

But do CAA level recruits overlap with NEC recruits? That's an honest question.

I would think they don't... but maybe at this level things overlap more than what I think. You guys probably know better

I also think SBU can offer a lot more than LIU can from a football athlete perspective. The amount of resources SBU has invested in facilities is pretty significant.

But hey, in the worst case scenario we can play Fordham/LIU as regional rivals now that Hofstra FB has been out of the picture

that's what i used to think and then when you look at the details of which schools our athletes looked at, it's usually hofstra, fairfield, st john's, marist, albany, dowling, bingo, etc.  meaning those are our competitors.  some very different institutions. 

i'd like to think that we compete with the larger state schools in the northeast- but sometimes we really dont- that is, uconn, massachusetts, rutgers, state penn, cuse forestry, cornell ag, etc.

my point is that programs can grow very quickly these days and kids do love having their family get to campus easily for a game.  just my opinion and admittedly an anecdotal one at that...

Stony Brook University alumn Dominick Reyes (9-0) is fighting on the main card against Ovince Saint Preux (22-11).

Reyes, before he was known as The Devastator, played college football for the Seawolves, where he was the starting safety from 2009 to 2012.

LAS VEGAS – Dominick Reyes (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) kept his perfect record unblemished with a brilliant decision win over Ovince Saint Preux (23-11 MMA, 11-6 UFC) that looked a lot like a knockout.

Also note Sagarin puts MVC quite a bit in front of the CAA.  Athlon did the same but no power rating.

Colgate is just in front of us, plays a much weaker schedule, pitched 3 shutouts, and nearly two others.  has only surrendered two TDs so far.

STATS has maine in front of us, forgiving the W&M loss.

The 52-14 final score also marks the largest margin of victory and the largest point total put up against a conference opponent or a team ranked inside the FCS Top 25.

The Dukes have dropped just one conference game in the past three seasons, and will likely be ranked inside the Top 3 when Stony Brook comes to town next weekend. The two programs last met in the second round of last year’s FCS playoffs, but the last time they faced each other in the regular season was in 2015.

Updated rankings:

#15 in the STATS poll
#15 in the COACHES poll

Both are BS as we should be a few spots higher. What really gets me is how many teams from the weak SOFTLAND conference that are in the poll. They have four teams ranked in a conference that's little better than the NEC this year. Dumb, but it is what it is.

Not related to SBU, but Buffalo is playing on ESPN2 right now as part of the MAC's midweek TV package called "Maction." For schools with large commuter populations like SBU, playing weeknight games like this may not be the worst thing. Buffalo is having their best season ever thus far, so they're definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Stony Brook #10 in both major polls released today. First time this has happened since 2012 I believe!! Great for the program and our playoff odds.


STATS: http://www.fcs.football/cfb/polls.asp?div=fcs
Coaches: https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/football/fcs/fcs-coaches-poll

To preface what I'm about to say: BEAT ALBANY. None of this matters if we don't beat the puppy dogs.

JMU is head of us in both, but plays Towson this weekend. The committee doesn't go off of polls, but I think if we're the highest ranked CAA team, that will look good come seeing time and bode well for who we get in the playoffs. If the CAA gets six teams in, I'm 99% sure we'd be matched up against one of the teams we didn't play in the first round. Maine and Elon would both fit the bill. Out of those, I'd rather face Elon due to their injury issues late, but we'll see. With the geographic angle the committee takes, I see virtually no way the committee puts six CAA teams in the playoff while avoiding a first round conference matchup. If we're real lucky we get the NEC champion (Duquesne, CCSU, or Sacred Heart) at home, but despite being a top 10 team I don't think we'll get that lucky. If there are six CAA teams in, they're going to have at least two of them play each other round one to thin the herd.

I'm hoping for a miracle there's enough chaos around the country for us to get a seed and first round bye. Best way for that I think is Kennesaw State beating Jacksonville State, Elon beating Maine, JMU beating Towson, and ETSU beating Samford to win the SoCon (and hoping they give us the seed at 8-3 over a 9-2 SoCon champ ETSU). Colgate losing to Army would also help, but that might not matter. Weber, Eastern Washington, UC Davis, and Wofford are all significant favorites in their games. I can't count on any of them losing, but we can hope. If all of the above happens, we could be looking at something like this:

Playoff Seeds:

1 NDSU
2 Eastern Washington
3 Colgate
4 Kennesaw State
5 Weber State
6 JMU
7 South Dakota State
8 Stony Brook

Also under consideration: UC Davis, ETSU, Wofford.

All in all, I'd bet on a Thanksgiving weekend game against a CAA opponent. If not them, then one of Duquesne, or Wofford/ETSU. Wildcard is they send one of the 6-5 Valley teams out our way like an Indiana State, Northern Iowa, or Western Illinois, but I doubt it. Would make for a super interesting playoff game though.

Colgate in round 2 wouldn't be bad either (their best win was over reeling [QB Trevor Knight  sat out with injury] and now 4-6 UNH).

The CAA league office just issued a statement on the possible scenarios for who would get the AQ bid from the CAA. As I mentioned earlier though, the scenario that results in us getting the AQ, actually may not be the best one for us getting a seed and vice-versa. Beat Albany, hope for a Maine loss, hope for chaos elsewhere, and let the chips fall where they may.

This is very interesting. Showing 6 CAA teams in the playoffs! Shows the strength of the conference. SEC of FCS.

As for bracket. I hope we get a seed. What needs to happen for a seed? Will defeating Albany with a high margin give us the seed? What other results need to be in our favor?

If we don’t get the seed, I hope we get to play other eastern teams rather than CAA teams in the first couple of rounds. I would rather play Duq, Wofford or Colgate than Maine. Not because I don’t think we can’t beat them, but because of novelty. We get to play CAA teams all the time.

Lastly, more than seed, I really hope we can be co-champions! Elon, please do us a favor!

Outside of Delaware what signature wind does SB have, none. We cant get a seed regardless who wins or loses this season at this point. I would love to play Colgate. Two powerhouse defenses. It would all come down to the running game and SB would ultimately tire out Colgate defense. Like they did with Delaware.

Outside of Delaware what signature wind does SB have, none. We cant get a seed regardless who wins or loses this season at this point. I would love to play Colgate. Two powerhouse defenses. It would all come down to the running game and SB would ultimately tire out Colgate defense. Like they did with Delaware.

This is probably right, but it's too early to say for sure. How does the committee feel about UC Davis' resume? Would they really give three Big Sky teams a first round bye while giving one or none to the CAA? What if Weber State loses to Idaho State (ISU can get one of the last playoff spots with an upset win over a top 5 team)? What about the Jacksonville State vs Kennesaw State game? Does either team get a seed with a KSU loss? If Colgate gets blown out by Army are they still seeded? They haven't played much of anybody all year. Will they give a seed or two to whoever wins the CAA AQ VIA that complicated tiebreaker (The final tie-breaker is Sagarin ratings and we're second in the conference by that metric just behind JMU)? Will they simply seed who they believe is the best CAA team? There are still so many questions marks as to how many teams get byes and who those teams are.  We're still top ten in both polls right now. Anything can happen.

What I hope for most is Maine loses, and we beat Albany to win a share of the CAA. That would be huge for our guys and this program. Finally CAA conference champions! Everything else is out of our hands. I'd love to play Colgate, but not until the second round. I believe they could be a paper tiger and be a fairly easy win all things considered as they haven't played a team with our size all year. That would be a fun game.

Regardless, I'd love to make it to the FCS quarterfinals this year. We've never made it that far and it would be a way for us to advance the program further if we finally did make it. That's a goal that's completely within reach for us regardless of CAA title, first round bye, seed, etc. We've always lost on the road in the second round in all of our playoff appearances thus far.

Some good stuff and great topic.  I dont see us getting to the quarterfinals with just a pound and ground game plan. We still need a quarterback contingency option. But my concern is we really dont have one. Carbone is extremely predictable and has no motor.

Against Colgate, i think our pound and ground is enough to score points. But if we have to play JSU or Kennesaw state, we will be shut down hard and Carbone will be forced into 3rd and long positions. And we all know how poorly he is when pressured and forced to throw.

Funny you mention Kennesaw and Jacksonville State. I actually think we could take both of them. Neither have played much of anybody yet this year as both are in weak conferences (the Big South today is weaker than when us, Coastal, and Liberty were there). KSU worries me a bit because they run the triple option like Air Force did, but Jacksonville State doesn't worry me.

The teams that worry me would be solid overall teams with good offenses. Eastern Washington, Weber State, NDSU and SDSU. It would kind of suck to have to go to Fargo to play NDSU, but it would be a smashmouth defensive battle of good running teams, and would show us where we stack up overall as NDSU is the best program in FCS, and we have one of our best teams ever.

You could possibly make the argument that his is definitely the best Stony Brook team ever.

What team has as many all-time yardage leaders, touchdown leaders, tackle leaders, sack leaders, and not to mention probably one of the best TE's ever? (Sorry, Tye, but Daniels has produced more)

Seawolves '18 is most complete team.

So. Rumors are circulating around the web that JMU coach Houston, is gone and is now the HC for FBC Charlotte. 3# years into a 10-year contract and he was garnishing P5 interest. UNC had eyes on him as well but went a different direction. What does SB get?? Well, they get coach P for 4 more years in a secretive contract.

Charlotte? That's barely a step up from JMU, but JMU ain't doing all that great this season all things considered, so strike while the Iron is hot I guess.

I'm seeing all these coaching rumors swirl around and deep down I hope somebody takes Coach P from us and pay his buyout in the process so we can take the program in a new direction once all the coaching musical chairs ends lol.

JMU fans are PISSED. So much anger in that thread and on the rest of the board. Expecting the man to stay on given the opportunity to more than double his salary. I get it that Charlotte isn't the best program, but them being so new gives him the chance to leave his mark and really build that place up from scratch. At the end of the day, it's still an FBS job in a desirable market. Take note that even the best of FCS ain't all that compared to FBS.

It really depends on what we're playing for. If we're playing for the Access Bowl, bowls against P5 competition, or otherwise bowls against good teams, then moving up definitely makes sense. If we're moving up though to go 6-6 and play another 6-6 team in the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl in front of 50 people, then I'd rather have the FCS playoffs.

Buffalo is in line to win the MAC this year and have an 11 win season. You know what their reward is going to be? The Dollar General Bowl against the third place team in the Sun Belt (if that). They could do much worse than that, but you're talking about an 11 win team playing in a weak bowl. The G5 conferences really need to negotiate better bowl tie-ins during the next go round, but I'd rather have the FCS playoffs than a low end bowl. I agree there.

That said, should a spot in a regional G5 conference open up (with teams like Temple, Umass, JMU,Delaware, etc.) I think we should take it. At least there we'd be playing regional teams with a higher profile. As it stands though with the current tie-ins, FBS bowls aren't that appealing unless you make the access bowl against a top 10 P5 team. I've somewhat changed my stance on this as joining the MAC, going 6-6 against Bowling Green and Kent State, then maybe playing ULM in a crappy bowl game isn't as appealing to me as the FCS playoffs. The number of bowl games needs to be cut in half.

Sometimes I'll briefly tune in to ESPN to watch one of the MAC games on each week. You can hear an echo with all the empty seats. The students and community don't care about games at the lower FBS level. I'm not privvy to the finances involved but wouldn't want to take one dollar away from academics to fund something like that.

Post by: Chairman of the Board on November 29, 2018, 12:00:03 pm
three thoughts-

if we want to move up to the FBS, we should work on attendance first. 

secondly, if we do want to move, we can't lose to winless albany, or lay an egg against AFA. 

third.  the FCS has been gaining ground steadily on the FBS in the last ten years.  any putative move to FBS in the next ten (let's say) could be a very different landscape. 

ok and a fourth- i understand it's more than just about attendance, competing at that level, the fans' needs, etc.  it's about money, tv contracts, stadia, geography, expenses, conference affiliations, etc.

Funny, I've thought the same thing. Heilbron is a west coast guy coming from UCLA then Oregon State. The fact that we were able to get him to come all the way over here in the first place speaks volumes about our university and athletic program. That said, he's doing quite well here and if a fairly high profile job opens up out west, we may not be able to keep him. That's the reality at this level. Really the only guys you can count on to stay long term are those with deep ties to the school and/or region. That said, I'm very happy with what Shawn is doing now. It seems like everything has been winning lately. You need an AD with a vision at Heilbron has that. You wouldn't believe some of the things I've heard said about JMU's AD. Their program is simply better than ours right now, yet there seems to be a lack of vision there if you listened to their fans (many think they should have taken the Sun Belt invite five years ago). We don't have that problem here.

Something probably is in the works, and has been since the last wave of conference realignment started in 2010. There were even rumors that we talked with the MAC about joining as a travel partner for UMASS if they brought all their sports on board. I completely believe those rumors. Only Heilbron and Stanley would know for sure though.

In the past I've been in the "FBS at all costs" crowd and wanted to get there ASAP, but even I think three years is unrealistic lol. I'd peg it at 5-6 at least simply because there's no need for conferences to be proactive with all the shuffling that may wind up happening with the Big 12 and TV contracts by 2025. SBU in many ways sticks out above the rest as a prime expansion candidate, so I wouldn't be surprised if we moved, but as I mentioned above, think about the FCS playoffs vs the low end bowls.

Unless we do what Western Michigan did a couple years ago, or what UCF has done these last two years, those are the kind of bowls we'd get.  In the current landscape the only conference that makes sense and would realistically invite us is the MAC, and then you're right back to the FCS playoffs vs the Who Cares Bowl and weeknight games dilemma once again. The MAC is still a one-bid basketball conference with further travel, and might be a downgrade in everything else. We could still go there, but it's not the no-brainer I once thought it was. The MAC is a great bus league and is good for everyone currently in it, but as a far eastern outlier who would have to fly to every game, I'm not 100% on it. Get a couple regional schools in the fold though and it becomes an easier decision.

Conventional thinking says if you get an FBS invite take it as you don't know when the next one will come. JMU rebuked this when they turned the Sun Belt five years ago, and Idaho basically did the same thing when they downgraded to FCS. Although if an actual invite is there for us and waiting, it's much harder to say no.

Listen, I think in the early Fall i put it on this forum. I had a conversation with SH about this exact topic and he looked at me straight in the eye as if i was crazy. He basically said, win the CAA conference first then maybe we can start talking about a move into the FBS conference. He also said the money associated with the move is enormous, not to mention, the stadium would need to be expanded.

Bottom line, 3-5 years is not even a thought. 10 years, we can maybe start talking about a move into the FBS.. All from the horse's mouth, not mine!!

I remember that. I also remember saying that if something actually were in the works SH would never tell you. Things like that must be kept quiet until the very last moment. SH would never just casually say "yeah, we're totally going FBS and have an invite from the MAC in hand" in a public setting. That kind of talk can easily leak out. The way these things work is there are behind the scenes discussions for years about it, then over the course of a few days all the news seeming comes out of nowhere, when it reality it has been in the works for years.

I agree the optics of moving to FBS in light of all the budget issues at the school would have poor optics to the public, but it's definitely doable and wouldn't cost all that much more money. You ignore the additional media dollars, bowl payout, gate revenue, CFP payout, etc. that being FBS would give us.

We keep talking about the MAC as a potential landing spot, tell me how we couldn't pull an FBS move off if we already have a larger athletic budget than half the conference (http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/finances/)? We already spend FBS money without the accompanying revenue.

Athletics has never been about turning a profit. Not at this level. It's more about student life and alumni engagement which wind up generating a return back to the university in ways far beyond(lol) the balance sheet. The article even states this.

Quote
"The value that athletics brings to campus life, life-long connection to alumni, and enhancing diversity on campus are all important outcomes from athletic programs that need to be celebrated and shared."

If you're insinuating that sports which don't make money should be dropped, then college athletics should be done away with entirely and the NCAA abolished.


My only concern with regards to football is the concussion/CTE issue and declining participation at the youth level. Declining participation trickling up to the high school, college, and eventually NFL level is what I worry about as far as the future of football. If the sport as a whole is in decline, then maybe going FBS doesn't make sense. That's an entirely different issue than a couple million bucks in the athletic budget though.

SB is a Division I school and I don’t know anyone suggesting it be any different. The issue is FCS v. FBS. The juice isn’t worth the squeeze. Be a perpetual FCS top tier school and students will be plenty engaged, or at least as much they can be at a STEM university on Long Island.

Post by: VA_Seawolf on December 02, 2018, 10:07:51 pm
ECU has a history as a fairly prominent independent back in the day 70s through the mid 90s. They were also the first G5 team to ever be ranked in the top 20 by the College Football Playoff committee just four years ago. They've got a massive stadium, amazing fan following, and good recruiting area. The only tough thing about turning that place around is that you have UCF, USF, Cinci, and Temple all in that same division who are all fairly hot programs right now. That's why I don't think it will be easy for him. If he gets them turned around he'll be at the top of the list for any P5 openings that come up 3-4 years from now.

Just for some facts. JMU has/had 17 FBS star transfer players on their team this year, including their QB, DeNucci. Colgate has zero. Just a tiny bit of food for thought!

not to mention who is in-state that competes for those players...

I believe SBU pulled the offer because he continued the recruiting process with many schools and even though he committed to URI he is going on another visit this weekend.

SBU has offered a very good DB from Maryland who's coming in for a visit this weekend

Bummer though because I thought he looked good.

Also he took his unofficial visit this past weekend. Maybe he just didn't love Stony Brook? It might just be that simple.

Title: Re: Stony Brook Seawolves Football News, Press Releases, etc
Post by: VA_Seawolf on December 21, 2018, 02:46:19 am
Couple big developments overnight on the coaching front. Harasymiak as we knew already is Minnesota bound, but breaking overnight was news that Maine's defensive coordinator Corey Hetherman has accepted the same position at JMU, and Towson's offensive coordinator Jared Ambrose has left for the same position at Delaware. These are both huge developments as Maine's defense, and Towson's offense were both not only the strongest units on their respective teams, but the strongest units in the entire conference last year. Both heading for the two largest brands in the CAA is an interesting development to say the least.

With JMU hiring Cignetti from Elon and now adding Hetherman as their DC, that squad is going to be stacked. They return a ton of players next year, so I don't see any dropoff occurring like we may have hoped for. Other than Utah State, JMU will easily be our toughest game next year. I think JMU's dominance of the CAA continues unless Cignetti proves to be a huge flop.

Ambrose is leaving his brother as well as Tom Flacco and a loaded group of returning starters behind at Towson. They'll still be dangerous, but now they'll be without their OC, and that offensive scheme. I'd credit Towson success last year more to Flacco than Ambrose, so this may not be too bad, but on the surface not exactly the best news for the CAA. The rich get richer.

I'm hearing there were serious money issues in Maine, which made it harder to retain both coaches. They're really hurting relying heavily on booster donations. Something is not right up there. Not sure who they get back for next year, but their coaching staff has been gutted, as has Elon's, who will lose likely their entire staff as well as several players to graduation. Towson has the most players coming back, but again lost their OC.

For better or for worse, SBU will have the most continuity in the coaching staff heading into 2019 of the six CAA playoff teams. I hope we can capitalize on that. Good news is I think the middle of the CAA just cleared out a fair bit, opening a path into the top 2. If we can get the QB position figured out, I like our odds next year. We have key players back along the defensive line, secondary, and interior offensive line.

The Deadskins have been decimated at the OL positions all year. I'm honestly surprised this didn't happen sooner. Hopefully he plays today, but stays healthy obviously. Great for Timon and great for this program to have another player get NFL playtime.

SBU ends the year as #16 in the STATS poll and #18 in the Coaches poll. Can't feel bad about ending the year that way given how we had a complete meltdown in the final two games. Nice to be able to pitch a top 20 finish to recruits even though we've all since long moved on to basketball at this point. SBU is the highest ranked five loss team in the STATS poll, the more legitimate of the two polls. Big takeaway here is that we're finally getting some respect as a program now, which will lead to higher rankings, and eventually higher post-season seeds.

I'm a bit more favorable towards Priore because (while Hofstra's folding helped a LOT) he did this. His talent, recruiting skills, and commitment permitted our expectations to perhaps rise above the ceiling of his abilities. I work at an ACC school now, and people there have actually heard of our football team. It's nice.

How many players from Stony Brook will be participating in this year Senior Bowl, and will be selected in this year NFL draft?? Zero. Once again, coach P will NOT have any SB players drafted in the NFL.

There was a bunch of FCS players in the Shrine game this year, and a bunch will be drafted.. Just saying..

Coach P does not have what it takes to take this school to the next level, and athletes out of HS know this..

When you judge a college football program on how many players they have in the NFL with how well they recruit HS players coming into their program each year you also have to look at the other FCS programs HS recruits that end up in the NFL and for the most part SBU has the same results the difference is how many Transfers from FBS programs end up in the NFL after they transfer say from an Alabama to a JMU or an Ohio State to a North Dakota State.

Every year many 5, 4, 3 Star players commit to the top programs only to find that their never going to play so they transfer to an FCS College and get an opportunity to play these are for the most part the players who go to the College All Star Games and end up getting drafted.

In my opinion SBU tries to recruit the best HS players every year and they are bringing in more solid transfers every year

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons announced Friday that they have signed safety Chris Cooper to a two-year contract. Cooper, 25, was last with the Kansas City Chiefs as part of their practice squad for the 2018 postseason.

Cooper initially signed with the Indianapolis Colts as a free agent out of college after the 2018 NFL Draft. He suffered an injury in the preseason and was waived during roster cut-downs.

Prior to arriving in the NFL, Cooper, who is 5-foot-10 and 202 pounds, was a star player at Stony Brook. Cooper finished his college career with 147 tackles, 12 tackles for a loss, nine pass defenses and four interceptions.

The Falcons also signed safety Afolabi Laguda on Friday, giving them two new players at a position where depth was seriously tested in 2018

AS long as coach P continues to be SB HC the issue of no NFL drafts will continue. His lack of big-time coaching skills will plague this university for years to come. So be it. If SH and President Stanley are comfortable with being a no name football team, thats fine with me. Go Clemson Tigers!!

I see no reason why SH would leave SB just because Stanley is now gone. However, SB needs to be careful about who they bring on board. If the new President has little to no interest in D1 sports, SH gone and so is SB athletics..

The committee needs to find a new President who has experience. Not some new assistant to an assistant Dean or Vice President of some small school out West. Bring in some veteran who has what it takes to grow an existing institution in academics, research and of course, for us, sports... This new President has very large shoes to fill. President Stanley did many good things for this school in so many ways. The trajectory must continue upwards, not idle. We don't need any lame Duck President whowill  do nothing for this University.

Maybe Spallina?  He's probably the best coach SB has ever had in any sport.

In defense of Priore, his team rose to the competition when SB football went to the CAA.  They've made the playoffs the last two years, even with a mediocre QB (a situation Hammertime has rightly criticized). Is he getting better?

No one is going to poach Priore. His record has been average, especially in light of SBU being a major public research university. From what I've seen, he doesn't have the personal "presence" on the field or off that's expected for a higher profile program.

SB has only been a D1 school in all sports since about 2002.  Increased funding is an even more recent phenomenon.  Priore pretty much built the football program and it is a pretty decent FCS program.  They play in the CAA, a better league than AE, which every other SB team plays in.

Not sure about the personality thing.  Nick Saban doesn't exactly have a riveting personality.  He's just a damn good coach, though.

With President Stanley going will the AD follow him

I see no reason why SH would leave SB just because Stanley is now gone. However, SB needs to be careful about who they bring on board. If the new President has little to no interest in D1 sports, SH gone and so is SB athletics..

The committee needs to find a new President who has experience. Not some new assistant to an assistant Dean or Vice President of some small school out West. Bring in some veteran who has what it takes to grow an existing institution in academics, research and of course, for us, sports... This new President has very large shoes to fill. President Stanley did many good things for this school in so many ways. The trajectory must continue upwards, not idle. We don't need any lame Duck President whowill  do nothing for this University.

SBU needs to find a "next level" President successor to Stanley.  Someone with credibility and experience to continue SBU's ascent - similar to the Fiore -> Heilbron move athletically.  Stanley was very pro-sports, and this needs to continue, as sports success adds to the marketability and branding of the university at large.  Any reversal of the sports momentum would be a huge mistake, IMO, but I'm sure everyone at SBU is fully aware of this by now.

Regarding Priore, I've never been a big fan of his game coaching skills.  Too conservative, strange play calls  in pivotal situations, poor use of timeouts, etc.   However, in fairness, he's had pretty solid success in the premier FCS conference in the country.  Like him or not, you have to show him some love for that.  And he recruited well over the years.  Sort of similar history to Pikiell in basketball - not the best field general, but solid recruiter with solid overall success.

would like a sports-focused president, as it's a driver for other things at the U.

another item for the wish list- a president that is committed to improving campus life.  fix that, and a lot of other things will fall into place.

At one time SBU had a Teaching Program which if they were to bring back would allow for a bigger recruiting base because I love the Medical Profession but I believe more athletes would come here for Teaching

I doubt Elon holds their own against Wake. Hemphill, who we probably should have hired as head coach is now the DC at Wake Forest. Expect him to get an FBS head coach gig soon. Hemphill still is one of the best defensive minds around. That man could coach defense. I bet even he manages to hold Clemson's offense to a relatively low point total in their game this year.

VA seawolf, I like Hemphill to and SB screwed up by not making him the HC, but we are talking about Clemson here. Trevor Lawrence will probably go down as Clemson best QB ever. He is going to shred WF defense and this game is going to be a blowout.

I know a bunch of SB football recruits played in the Boomer Empire game this past Friday. Do we know, or is there any film on how they performed? How did Shawn Harris Jr. do at RB.

I was on the LI sidelines and Shawn Harris is a WR and looked very good.
Keith Winfrey played DE, Aidan Kaler played ILB, Jordan Jackson played CB, Vincenzo played OT, Javonie Duran played DE and they all played really well.

Also the SBU CB Coach Rich Reichert’s Dad was the LI HC and that was his final HS Game of Coaching after leading the St. Anthony’s Football Program.

I forgot Kyle Angus a RB from St. Anthony’s also played well

update on reyes: https://www.cbssports.com/mma/news/ex-ufc-middleweight-champ-chris-weidman-to-make-light-heavyweight-debut-vs-dominick-reyes/

Quote
Reyes (11-0), the No. 4-ranked light heavyweight contender, presents an interesting opposition for the former 185-pound champion, to say the least. He's gone 6-0 since making his UFC debut in 2017, and has quickly become a fan-favorite as a potential 205-pound title challenger to Jon Jones sooner rather than later. Reyes' most recent victory came over former light heavyweight title challenger Volkan Oezdemir in London back in March by way of split decision.

Just wondering. Does anyone know what happened to Senior, TE, Tyrone  Wheatley. Remember the transfer from Michigan. He didnt do much last season for us but did look promising. He was a Junior when he came to SB. He is not on this year Roster...
