 I read his bio on the website and I'm impressed. Oregon St, UCLA and SMU  is not too shabby.   Hopefully  the winds of change  are positive.

Sounds like a great move by Dr. Stanley. I'm excited. I was already getting worried why it took so long but I think we have found a good AD here!

This is a great hire- this is a power move as Shawn has an exceptional track record. SMU, UCLA, and OSU is an impressive athletic background- the last two stops in particular are massive places with gigantic budgets. Making a hire like this is pretty darn impressive- there's no AD in the America East that has these type of stops on their resume.

I gotta say, you don't get a guy with this type of background unless you're planning about being really aggressive about investing in the athletic department. This hire just reaffirms to me that Dr. Stanley is really interested in fortifying the athletic profile of the university. Heck, this move may set the backbones for a big conference move in 10-15 years.

Don't  forget he is a Long Horn Forever-his alma mater  is Univ. of Texas  a Big 12 and National power.

IS that good or bad Seawolf97? I would say that's a good thing but I'm not sure about your point of view

I really like this move.

His resume is impressive, and he's got ties to the Big 12 and the Pac-12, which can only help us with potential non-conf scheduling and "western expansion of the brand".

 I meant his entire background has  been  big time athletics  and bodes well  now that he is a Seawolf .  For the AE he is a big fish right now in a small pond, I'm very optimistic  about our athletic departments future..

To me it stands for success, it stands for pride, it stands for integrity and it stands for winners,” said Heilbron. “That’s what we’re going to build that brand around and make sure when coaches recruit and when we’re trying to connect with fans on Long Island and in New York State

Heilbron believes the fans are out there, though. “We can be Long Island’s program, that should be our immediate goal,” he said. “There are 3 million people on Long Island, there are 3 million people right now in the state of Oregon.”

Our future is bright  I'm sure.  Just need to expand   the fan  base   and  keep winning on a  regular  basis.  I think our new AD  will lead us upward overtime.

athletes get iPads http://www.stonybrookathletics.com/genrel/080615aaa.html

Quote
This program will benefit all Stony Brook student-athletes academically and allow them to have greater ease of access to online information, blackboard, learning apps and e-textbooks as a result of having their own individual iPad. In addition, there will be new and creative opportunities to push video and messaging to our student-athletes in a timely manner to benefit their athletic performance.

"There is no question that providing iPads to each of our student-athletes will enhance their Stony Brook experience and impact their lives in a positive and productive way," Stony Brook Director of Athletics Shawn Heilbron said. "I am grateful to our colleagues with the Division of Information Technology for their work on rolling out this critical initiative."

i dont know if any of you guys are getting the Together We Transform Thursday messages from the athletic dept.  a lot of good in this latest one:

Academy of Leaders
Quote
One of the new initiatives this year that I was very excited about was the creation of the Academy of Leaders. The Academy of Leaders (or AOL, as we call it) consists of two influential student-athletes from each team who meet with me monthly to discuss issues, share ideas and provide feedback about their experience at Stony Brook. One of the most critical aspects of the AOL is to provide valuable leadership training.

We hosted the AOL last week for a two-day workshop that gave our students firsthand exposure to prominent business leaders and opportunities to network with successful alumni. We also took the group on a trip to Manhattan where our student-athletes met with one of our most generous supporters, Glenn Dubin. It was impactful when Glenn shared his story about wanting to work on Wall Street after graduating from Stony Brook but being rejected by the first 29 firms that he interviewed with. On his 30th interview, he finally received a job offer and his message was to learn from every experience while constantly working to improve yourself along the way.


Electric Atmosphere
Quote
Friday night's men's basketball game was incredible to experience on so many levels.
A new attendance record of 4,109 was set as Island Federal Credit Union Arena was completely sold out for the second time in its two-year history.

Even though the game ended after 11 p.m., I went home and re-watched the ESPNU broadcast on my DVR. It made me incredibly proud to see how well the arena showed on television and served as a showcase for Stony Brook. Our goal is to have opportunities for national television exposure in the future as it further enables us to highlight our incredible university. I must admit that I woke up Saturday morning and watched it again. It was even better the second time!

Victor Ochi Makes His Mark
Quote
The game is an annual all-star showcase for top NFL prospects and was broadcast nationally on the NFL Network. Watching the game, it quickly turned into a Victor Ochi infomercial as the announcers were gushing with praise for him.

P.S. Just after I wrote this earlier on Thursday, I ran in to Will Tye in the hallway. Will told me that he is busier now than he was during the season. Success brings opportunities off of the field, and Will is living proof!

wow, watches the game after the game and then again in the morning.  you have to like the enthusiasm.

Say goodbye to the cheap Football tickets, and higher prices on Basketball tickets, too..

 I have no problem dropping my season tickets in football and basketball if the price isn't right.   We are still small potatoes that's why I don't pay for parking but walk from the railroad station.  Once we get an invite to the BIG 10 then I will pay BIG 10 prices. What we have now is still fun and low scale but if they get crazy  then so be it .

I hear you. I would love to see SBU jump into the American Conference for all sport. This is where is see UA going in the near future. If UA goes, SBU will follow!!

If we go into the American Conference or the MAC  that would be  great.  We could have a home for many years to come against good competition.

the America athletic Conference you mean? no way... we are not even close to that level. the AAC is basically right below Power 5... we are from there
