Title: 2012-2020: Football Schedules
Post by: sbufan on October 31, 2011, 10:13:25 am
I know we're heading into November with a possible Big South Championship on the line so this isn't the best time to be looking into future seasons, but I think we should have a thread keeping track of future opponents.

2012 (I know I'm missing an FBS game. Marshall? We will most likely pay another d2 for a home game. For the last game I would like to schedule a home and away series with UNH, but would very much like to have any CAA team on the schedule. This is just wishful thinking though)
@Army
Central Connecticut
Colgate
@ Liberty
@Coastal
@Presbyterian
Gardner Webb
Charleston Southern
VMI

2013
@BC
@Buffalo
@Colgate
Brown

2014
@Cincy

I hope we can quit playing DII teams. Its time to schedule DI the whole season. Teams that people have heard of. I know we want the extra home game. But maybe we can get an extra home-away series instead of playing a DII team like St.Anselm

Post by: ecasadoSBU on October 31, 2011, 02:24:46 pm
Also, I really like the Central Connecticut game. We should schedule more local teams (albany, UNH, Maine, Monmouth,etc) like that and continue the two FBS per season.

The BC game is awesome. I will travel up to Boston to see that one for sure. Tough team

Like the Army game. Its a game we can drive up to watch.

On other boards  Colgate will visit  StonyBrook in 2012 and we will travel  to Colgate in 2013. Also  Brown will return to StonyBrook in 2013.

I love the brown series.  It's always a really close matchup between our schools, and its given us some of the most exciting games I've ever seen here.  I also like the CCSU series geographically, but the last time we played them, it was just a slaughter.

Both of these schools have also brought good crowds and marching bands.  I'd love to see both series continue.

This should be the last year of filling in the Hofstra slot, so moving forward our schedule should get better.

I like what I see for 2012.  The 'Cuse and Army games are your typical FBS games.  They are big names, look great on paper, aren't exactly great teams, but should beat us.  If we can keep it close it's awesome.  If we can sneak a win, thats spectacular.

Colgate, Pace, and CCSU are very winnable games, and the conference schedule is standard.

That gives us 9 very winnable games out of 11.  Given everything, I still believe that to get in the playoffs we either need to win the conference, or if we lose a game in conference, we'd need to beat one of the FBS teams to get an at-large berth.  Going to be another fun year!
Title: Re: 2012-2013: Football Schedules
Post by: ecasadoSBU on January 22, 2012, 08:06:57 pm
Syracuse and Army are two good FBS teams to schedule specially cuz they are higher chances of them being on TV.  Thats a smart move by Stony Brook. I'm sure that the Cuse game should be broadcasted at least regionally most likely on SNY. The Army game also has chances of being carried on TV, maybe MSG or MSG+ considering the recent success of Stony Brook football and the popularity of Army football. Both games can be attended by our fan base in more significant numbers than if it was at Florida (USF) or Texas (UTEP). Good move by Stony Brook.

In my eyes, the only blemish is the Pace game. We need to schedule Division I all games if we want to be taken serious nationally. The Big South in general needs a stronger schedule and scheduling teams like Pace doesn't help. Despite me disliking the Pace, I will have to say that I prefer that over a team like St.Anselm. Pace is local, so that helps. Pace is widely known in the metro area and may drag a few extra fans into the game considering the St.Anselm game was less than half full...who that hell knows St.Anselm?

Hopefully by 2013 we can have a all-Division I schedule, that'll be a huge move and would continue the upward trajectory of SB Football. Stony Brook football is looking bright and its on a good path. Go Seawolves

Post by: ry1nik on January 23, 2012, 09:51:11 am
I don't see the Pace game as a problem. If SB has to rely on an at-large berth (hope they don't), then I think a lack of LOSSES instead of total wins against FCS teams carries more weight. It shouldn't, but the committee seems to penalize losses more than it rewards wins. A win against either Syracuse or Army is possible (Sam Houston is rated higher than both of them). A game against Pace would give the Wolves somewhat of a bye week. Win an FCS game, lose no more than two games in total, and they would get in.

The FCS Playoff Committee has not relied on any "threshold" of any sort EXCEPT for a hard 7-D1 win threshold. Given our cupcake schedule and 2 FBS opponent mandate, we cripple ourselves in this area - basically requiring an undefeated FCS OOC and an FBS win to qualify for the playoffs. Given that there are 3 brand new FCS programs that are D1 counters looking for opponents (including local Rhode Island program Bryant), there should have been no problem finding a replacement for Hofstra years in advance. This was a total failure by the administration in my eyes.

Post by: sbufan on January 24, 2012, 08:29:48 am
Stony Brook wants to play two FBS games a year. I assume this is to help recruiting, build the "brand", and bring in money. But they want to balance out the schedule so they're going to pay two teams to come to lavalle. This year it's CCSU and Pace. NEC teams our cheap to pay for money games because they're not FBS counters (don't offer enough scholarships to count towards bowl eligibility), and similarly D2's are even cheaper because they don't count towards FCS playoff eligibility. The football program doesn't generate enough revenue to afford to bring in two D1's at the moment, so we'll most likely have a D2 on the schedule for the foreseeable future.

Is it possible that the reason that Stony Brook chose to have no Bye-week is because they assuming to reach they playoff and want a bigger break?
Title: Re: 2012-2013: Football Schedules
Post by: jaghatai on February 04, 2012, 06:23:06 pm
No bye week is a function of the conference schedule.  Technically, our "bye week" is Nov 17.

Our conference has 7 teams, so each week, one conference team has a "bye".  Last year, Coastal had the "last bye", Liberty "second to last", etc.

We're the champs (awesome), so we get the "last bye", which is Nov 17.  We could have tried to fill that with a non-conference game, but thats a really tough slot to fill.

I love the idea of a bye week going into the playoffs, or even better, if we can dominate, we could end up with two bye weeks going into the playoffs...

Sat., Sep. 1    vs. Central Connecticut    Stony Brook, N.Y.    6:00 p.m. ET
Sat., Sep. 8    vs. Pace    Stony Brook, N.Y.    6:00 p.m. ET

Sat., Sep. 29    at Army TV    West Point, N.Y.    12:00 p.m. ET
Sat., Oct. 6    vs. Charleston Southern    Stony Brook, N.Y.    6:00 p.m. ET
Sat., Oct. 13    at Coastal Carolina * TV    Conway, S.C.    TBA
Sat., Oct. 20    vs. Gardner-Webb *    Stony Brook, N.Y.    4:00 p.m. ET
Sat., Oct. 27    at Presbyterian * TV    Clinton, S.C.    1:00 p.m. ET
Sat., Nov. 3    vs. VMI *    Stony Brook, N.Y.    6:00 p.m. ET
Sat., Nov. 10    at Liberty *    Lynchburg, Va.    3:30 p.m. ET


Army beat NW last year, but otherwise had gaping holes in its defense.  That game could be a track meet for us.  It might really be the best team we play during the regular season.

Cuse has us in between USC and Minnesota.  Last year they beat Wake and surprisingly beat up WVU in the dome.  Otherwise, losses to every team in the Big East.  It looks like they really struggle on the road, but we play them inside the Dome.

Liberty is always a good game so that one i think will be unpredictable, especially down in Lynchburg.  Coastal might be a threat this year too, we travel to them in mid-Oct.

Post by: sbufan on August 08, 2012, 12:03:06 pm
How does this affect our future non conference scheduling? The plan while SBU was in the Big South was to play 2 FBS games a year, but 2 money games plus an 8 game CAA schedule would make it very difficult to get to the required 7 wins for at large consideration. Also, we are rumored to already have 4 games scheduled for 2013: @Buffalo, @BC, @Colgate, and Brown. If true I'm guessing we'll buy our way out of Colgate contract to balance our home and away games in 13.

Post by: Chrissy D. on September 12, 2012, 01:40:59 pm
We won't be playing 3 div 1 teams, 2 is usually the limit. If we do play 12 gms do not be suprised if they do keep a div 2 team on the schedule, it would mean an extra home game. With the two D1 road games that would leave us w/4 conf home gms and 4 road gms. Whether they play 11 or 12 gms those would probably be lesser comp teams at home. While they continue to grow the program they are going to want at least 5 or 6 home gms a year. As far as strength of schedule goes they are playing 2 D1 teams a year and 8 CAA conf gms so that is plenty, with that you need to have a few easy wins cause you can't count on winning those D1 gms.

2013: OOC @Boston college, @Buffalo and @Colgate. Brown's future schedule does not have us for 2013.
2014: OOC Cincinnati; Temple does not have us for next three years in their future ooc schedule. Couldn't find UConn's 2014 schedule anywhere though.

Are we playing a total of 11 or 12 games in 2013?

As for  the CAA schedule we should play  4 CAA teams at home. Two from the CAA North and two from the South. Same with our CAA road games two northern teams and two south. The CAA is not  naming North- South Divisions . So unofficially -
   North - Stonybrook, Albany, Maine, UNH and  Rhode Island.
   South- Villanova, Towson, Delaware. James  Madison, Richmond and William &  Mary.
   I will try and verify that Brown game for next year

Someone wrote on another forum:

"With an 11-team CAA and keeping a 8-game conference schedule, I assume the CAA is using the old BigTen model.

Each team is assigned 2 "rivals" which would be played every year, and you would skip a pair opponents from the remaining 8 teams for a 2-year period.
"

Who could be our assigned rivals? Hopefully Albany and UNH, but most probably Albany and URI based on approximity.

Such an odd way to do it.  I actually think the new B1G model is better; split to two divisions, play your division (which in turn creates rivalries), rotate around the other side of the league.

Yes! Exciting schedule. FBS games are definitely winnable. They both had losing seasons. As of now Sagarin has this ranking:

123 Boston College (2-10)
128 Stony Brook (10-3)
137 Buffalo (4-8)

They also might ignite regional rivalry and more interest. These two games will also provide good preparation for tough CAA schedule. In Big South there was only one tough team, Liberty. In CAA we will play UNH and Richmond.. probably also Towson and JMU. Much tougher schedule than Big South.

Great to end with Albany! This will be our constant fixture each year. Rivalry week. We will host the game every other year.

Just a  note.  Army came from behind and beat Boston College this year at Army. We all know how we did up at West point. BuffaloGotta have hope. did beat us pretty bad 35-7 but Coulter was hurt that day and  Essington came in the next week. It was Coulters last game. So  maybe two FBS wins in 2013 ?

Our team was different back them. we did get beat pretty easily by Buffalo but I think our program is more more established and our team Believes that they could win FBS games like they did against Army. Buffalo is consistently a terrible team in the FBS and I'm sure we can pull the "upset".


Boston College would probably be a more difficult task but not impossible. The Brook is a top team in the FCS and these upsets will happen more often.

Its amazing how our schedule keeps getting better and better. Look back to 2005-07 and the difference is huge

Don't be fooled, though. We had arguably the toughest schedule in the MAC and at one point the 5th most difficult in FBS. Georgia (obvious). NIU (Orange Bowl), Kent St (would have also made the Orange Bowl if they had won the MAC), and 4 other bowl teams. UConn on the road was a tough, close loss. We beat the 4 teams we should have. It will be more manageable to make bowl eligibility in 2013 (SBU, UConn, EMU, UMass, Ohio, BGSU at home, Ohio St, Baylor, Toledo, Kent St, Miami, WMU on the road).

The key for us next season is losing just 12 Sr's, with only 2 Offensive starters gone. 16 starters and all special-teamers return. All QB's who played return as will 97% of rushing yards, 99.7% of receiving yards, 100% of points scored, and 15 of our top 20 tacklers. Oliver our RB who burned your D will be a Sr. Khalil Mack, soon an NFL draft pick who was a 1-man pass-rush against your OL, will be a Sr. In comparison, your Seawolves will have many more unknowns and holes to fill in your 2-deep.

We can both play that game though recovering hillbilly. Stony Brook will have 4 of 5 of its starting offensive linemen  back from the last matchup where Stony Brook ran for 184 yards when these kids were only freshman and sophomores. Imagine what they'll do to Buffalo next year when the offensive line is all grown and blocking for a former all Big Ten back.

No desperation here. I signed up here months ago mostly to talk reallignment. I've been a main booster for SBU to become a MAC FB only member for a while on the MAC message boards. UB's leadership & AD have a great relationship with SBU, far more than the other doctoral SUNYs.

No smack here regarding our games, just analysis. We return just about all our key pieces, including those sophs who dominated in 2011. You were able to run for 1 qtr, but we adjusted and held you to no drive over 4 plays until we brought in our 2nd team. With all the loses in your passing game what are the other playmakers who would keep a superior MAC defense off balance? Are Negron and Coxson capable of taking on a top MAC pass D that returns all in our 2-deep? On top of finding other WRs & TEs who could handle more than FCS? So many ?'s on offense, and replacing Skiffington and some great defenders, to get started on upset talk for an FBS team on the upswing who dominated 2 years prior.

Post by: RecoveringHillbilly on December 22, 2012, 08:47:07 pm
Yep a bad year for us soccer-wise with our HC taking a leave of absence & the interim not installing strong D. Fired him and hiring anew, a dire need since we had been top 25 & play in a league with Akron and WVU.

We play UA and BU on occassion, but never in MBB. Our AD really avoids AE and NEC contests for RPI purposes which is too bad.

It is great playing pay games to SBU for the reasons stated. Plus, we get  better crowds for SBU, Colgate, and Lehigh, than we have for FCS programs from farther locales. I'd expect UAlbany to give us a call too now that they will be full-scholly. They love facing SBU the Evil Empire, so having a shot at the hot-shot THE State U of NY, makes them salivate.

Grata to you for the CAA and scheduling. No FCs fan can ever knock you for NEC/Big South ties now. It's not easy but worth it. UB was an Indy program playing YSU, Ill St, UConn, UMass, Maine, & Hofstra most seasons, and had a rough go of it. But the crowds and excitement for those teams were totally worth it.

RecoveringHillbilly is a great guy, he's been around for a while and from then looks of it he is a proud Buffalo fan... He does have a point when he says it wont be an easy task beating Buffalo. But I do think that our team will be more prepared this time around and the fact that they wont have to be the first to get a victory against an FBS team is also a positive. I wish we can fast forward to September and find out!!


This definitely can be a good rivalry. The largest two SUNYs in opposite ends of the state competing against each other. Sounds awesome already!

RHillibilly, question for you: I don't know how long you've been around UB, but has the move to FBS football made a difference in terms of student morale, retention, and applications? Many would argue that the primary purpose of college athletics is (or should be) to improve the academic experience by improving the student experience. There may also be some benefit wrt recruiting faculty and gaining alumni support (though most FBS programs lose money for the school). We've had some debate on this board re. whether it's a good idea for SBU to go FBS and probably be a mediocre FBS program for many years w/o any chance for a top national ranking, OR remain FCS and be a consistently Top 15  team and regular candidate for a national championship (without losing money). I've advocated  the top-level FCS option. Some others think bigger is better....although as I said it could mean a string of losing seasons for a while (which has been UB's experience and probably same for UMass). Just curious what you and others at UB think about the actual effect (not just personal preference) of UB's move to FBS.

I totally agree there. Unless there is any chance of upgrading to one of the top 5 BCS conferences like ACC or Big 12 (for which there is no realistic chance), I just dont see the allure of moving up to FBS and playing in one of the bottom conferences with losing seasons. We will never have the budget or the local/alumni passion and support that those southern and mid-western BCS programs have. And to me, those programs have lost their soul to money making anyway. And besides the top 5 dor 10 bowls, rest of the bowls are meaningless imo.
College sports should be about college experience and I am happy with competing for FCS national championship than playing for meaningless bowl game that no one cares about. (MBB is a different topic though, and I think we can definitely generate good local support and a realistic chance of becoming a major player in the northeast region and joining a conference like A10 oneday).

For starters, I really have to admit I LOVE the schedule.  It's going to be difficult, with a lot of winnable games (and at the same time, a lot of loseable games too).

The thing I'm most psyched about is that we've got a bunch of away games that we can reasonably travel to.  Don't get me wrong, the Big South stadiums in October were a blast, but the 8-10 hour travel time each trip was a killer.  Looks like i'm travelling a bunch this fall!

It's going to be a bit of a reloading season.  I think that Buffalo is going to be the roughest game on the slate, but while I'm not expecting a win, I'm also not expecting a blowout.

I have alot of respect for our Hill Biily friend from UB.  I truly hope just a little rivalry develops through football. I went  to Buffalo St about  100 years ago and UB  was always our bigger cousin. Never did beat them in hoops. Hopefully the little rivalry I saw at the time  between Buff State and UB  develops between SBU and UB. It is great school by the way. Even bigger now than it  was when I lived up there.
Title: Re: 2012-2015: Football Schedules
Post by: RecoveringHillbilly on December 25, 2012, 07:39:22 am
I was an undergrad during UB's 1-AA days so I've seen the program from both sides. We were destined for a return to 1-A/FBS. We had played in the University Division in the 60's and sent guys to the pros. But when SUNY banned athletic scholrships in '78 we had to battle all through the 80's to reverse that move. It stunted our AD development waiting that long. When we moved to 1-AA (straight from D3) our AD budget was ~$5M so there were many growing pains. But there were usually decent crowds of 4k-7K and some good times like beating YSU/Tressel the year after they won the title.

But spirit was tough to find. Budget cuts under Pataki led to regular arguments that football should not be funded over academic programs. We had a doughnut-hole of alumni support, with alums who had been around in the 50's and 60's loving the move, but very little support from the D3/non-football era of alumni. But our leaders back then knew being AAU and the largest public in NY/New England meant we belonged. We went after the MAC and it was a unanimous vote. The commish back then had a UB connection and touted our institutional profile and access to Upstate NY markets.

It was rough being a fan a decade ago when we had bad hires and inept AD's. But when we finally won the MAC you could see why it was all worth it. The local sports radio who only talked Bills/Sabres suddenly got sick of the Bill's losing and started talking up UB. Local and national media really became interested in Turner Gill and our past, which would never happen if FCS:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXuX1GsQ-ZQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXuX1GsQ-ZQ)

And that season began to show the potential of our market and alumni, and why FBS is worth everything. We have 70K alums living in WNY and 210K+ overall so:

*The MAC title game win against Ball St stands as the most-watched game between two MAC programs ever
*We sold our full allotment of 10K bowl tix. And of the 40K who attended the game, ~30K were supporting Buffalo
*"The University at Buffalo’s loss to UConn on Saturday afternoon in the International Bowl was a local ratings hit. The game on ESPN2 averaged a 16.5 rating, representing 16.5 percent of Western New York homes. To put that in perspective, UB’s afternoon game on cable outrated San Diego’s overtime victory over Indianapolis (16.2) on Channel 2, the local NBC affiliate. It also outrated Arizona’s earlier win over Atlanta (12.6)" -Alan Pergament, Buffalo News
*"Time Warner Cable reported that the game drew the largest local cable broadcast audience in four years" (Per UB Athletics)
 
Only FCS fans see smaller bowls as minor. Nearly all draw better ratings and attendance than the FCS final. Exposure is everything and it helped our AD brand and school spirit obviously soared. There was nothing minor about this environment:

RHillbilly, I appreciate the thoughtful response. You are obviously passionate about Bulls football. I guess I was trying to bait you into saying that FBS is not all some claim it to be, but you didn't take the bait. I don't doubt that school spirit was boosted during UB's lone winning season, but I see a losing record in 13 of the 14 years that UB has been FBS, with a combined record of 17-86 prior to the first (and only) winning season. I think all SB fans on this board are convinced that Stony Brook as an FCS member will go forward with winning seasons. Even if SB went FBS and was TWICE as successful as UB, our FBS record would be around 34-69. I don't think the effect on the community would be any more positive (would probably be negative) than SB having a superior winning record at the FCS level...with a few CAA conference championships and maybe an FCS championship game appearance thrown in for good measure. Regardless, I appreciate your response, and Happy Holidays.

This!

On the otherhand if we were to follow a UConn style football trajectory, who are not one of the college football powers, but has a respectable winning tradition in FBS, then I would be happy to move to 1A.

But seeing how UMass is suffering now on field and off field (terrible attendance.. lower average than when they were in 1AA and media support), I am happy with SBU's 1AA success.

The FBS topic is very interesting. The truth is that at any level: FBS provides better exposure than the FCS... and everyday it gets worst for the FCS...

I think that as an institution we belong in the FBS. Our school is large and peer institutions with similar enrollment are playing at that level. UMass is a cautionary tale but at the same time I believe SBU would be a different story. We have a supportive administration, media, and community and we are currently riding a wave of success in our athletic department as a whole. I have no doubt SBU can be competitive at that level and I would prefer a 4-7 year timetable to make the jump. For now we have to continue to aspire to win an FCS championship and to be a competitive power at the FCS.

We gotta pull as many FBS upsets as possible and continue recruiting at a high level. Division I FBS is our destiny! LOL

From what I have read on other boards part of the UMass problem is playing at Foxboro.  That is over 2 hours from Amherst on a good day. If they truly  have thier home games at home things will hopefully  improve attendance wise.  Performance of their team is another story. I would find it difficult  to attend a Stonybrook home game if I had to drive  2 hours each way. As for joining the MAC or similar conference  that could be our reality in 5 plus years. The super conferences- BIG10, ACC , SEC etc are way out of our reach and opportunities are closing to enter them.  Being in the MAC still gives you a good OOC schedule home and away and a respectable  conference schedule in all sports. So we will see what happens after several years in the CAA, but I can see FBS football in our future.
Title: Re: 2012-2015: Football Schedules
Post by: Hammertime on December 26, 2012, 08:07:30 am
The only problem we have with joining the FBS is the Attendance. I attend every home game and see how many fans/ students attend. As far as the non students Fan base goes we do ok,.4000 to 5000 attendance is the norm, not great but is getting better each passing season. Now the student Fan base is another issue. I see only hand full of students attending the games above the tunnel and thats a huge problem. What can S/B do to try and change that and invite more students to go to the games?? I don't have the answer and I've had this disscussion to many people and nobody real has a an answer besides the obvious, win more games!!

I think the problem is not with S/B Football. The problem is L.I. .... We have 2 Pro Football teams, 2 pro Basketball, 2 pro Hockey,etc, etc... in our area. Most of my friends and family rather see a Giant or JETS game before they see a college Football game. Me, I rather attend a good college football game over the JETS any day lol.. Another problem with S/B is the high percentage of students who are Medical students. Most students are to busy studying for finals/exams on Satudays. The Ivy League schools don't have a playoff because of that reason..

Hofsta had a similar problem and because of that their Football program lost $$$$

Hammertime I know what you are saying.  I dont have  an answer for poor student attendance either. Yet I watch  major programs fill their student sections  every Saturday with probably the same  financial  deal of cut rate tickets or free tickets through a student activity fee.  A person I work with has daughter who goes to Penn St. . Even during the down time they are going through with the scandal  students wait in line to see their Nitany Lions play football.And yes the NY Metro  Area is all about pro sports so we compete with that level for media and fan attention. I think U Conn and Rutgers are just far enough away and a liitle more established to draw fans despite the NY pro mania.  If the day comes when we move to an FBS conference  home games against the military academies, ACC and Big 10 schools will be a draw. It is a big financial risk for sure. Just look at UMass.

The students are there... Its just that they don't think we have a big enough product to make it worth going to the games. I remember trying to make some of my hall mates attend the games. They wouldn't go and nothing was enough to convince them. Student attendance will go up as we come out more often in TV, we win more games, and have championship seasons. That's the only thing that will make them attend. Penn St. wasn't Penn St. from day one, same thing goes with Uconn and Rutgers... after a program takes off it would feed on itself.

It is possible to build a College FB program in the Northeast. it will take a lot of work, but it is possible and I think we got the right administration to lead us there (Fiore and Stanley). I believe Fiore can get us there (to a Uconn/Rutgers/BC status) the University has to do everything possible to keep him for the next decade or two!! UConn did it on the backs of their basketball program (UCONN was a CAA/A10 FB program 13 seasons ago) and we can do it by building a winning reputation across our entire athletic department like we are doing in the present

 The student section was filled for and before homecoming. There were alot of problems in the parking lot with fraternities fighting at the homecoming gm and as a result the campus police had to clamp down on the student tailgaiters (underage ones ). Tailgaiting gets students to the gms but all it takes is a few jackasses to ruin it. Attendance on a whole will increase because of the CAA teams being closer to us. Hofstra never avg 5,000 so we do not have the same problem as them ( they avg 1,500 ). I feel 7,000 would be a good avg. for the time being. What I do not want to see is them expand the stadium and have more empty seats. They can make improvements without expanding seats. I think we would all be happy if we avg 7,000 and had 3 or 4 sellouts. As far as exposure goes we have been getting alot more than Hofstra ever did and that should go up with CAA TV deal with the NBC sports cable channel. ESPN has been very good to SB and I see that continuing.

Seawolf:  I assume you were referring to this excerpt from the article: "Bates also put the Eagles game against Stony Brook (which never should have been scheduled) on August 31st-another winnable game–in Addazio’s debut.  Those are little things, but it also means that the Bates–Adddazio relationship is starting off on a cohesive note which could again turn the Eagles back into a bowl-eligible program"

maybe we will have a suprise in store for the Eagles come August 31  :P

James Madison is added to the schedule. So far 4 CAA home games and 1 CAA away game dates are known. Most probably travelling to two other northern teams (Maine and URI) and to one of the two other southern teams (Nova or W&M). Delaware already has their schedule out and not playing them. Also one more ooc game is to be decided. We are not playing Colgate or Brown in 2013, as rumored earlier.

This is a terrible schedule. How did Jim Fiore and Priore even allow this. Starting our home season on 9/28. What the f*ck... That's going to be an attendance killer and probably take us a step back. This probably means homecoming will be pushed back to October when its already cold... Not cool at all

I will wait until the official release because I'm sure this is getting worked out still. Its just hard to believe a guy like Jim would allow the program to get fuc*ed over like that. Something needs to be done. we should have atleast one home game by the fourth week...

With that said. If this doesn't changes. Lets get ready to become roadwarriors. @Nova and @Rhody are fairly close from the NY Metro area

like iBOsbu said, there is nothing on Nova's or Rhody's website to indicate this is indeed their schedule for games with SB.  nor can I find anything on Fox Sports Network FCS coverage.  so who knows how accurate this is.   I agree that first home game in Week 5 would really suck.

Ok everyone off the ledge- its not as easy as just picking where you want to play and who and when... specifically when you are jumping into a new conference and you have to be fit into their schedules- multiple, that is.  Im sure Coach and AD didnt want it this way, but its probably what we have to do to get into the CAA.  It will get better.  Remember this is sort of a fire drill, changing over the schedule and fitting into everyone elses.

Its a great test.  Lets make it an opportunity, get out there, and win.  GO SB
Title: Re: 2012-2015: Football Schedules
Post by: BigFatFan on January 16, 2013, 05:37:44 pm
Both Albany and SB still have big holes in their schedules for next year, so I think Chairman's comments bear some weight, as to moving into a new conf and the scheduling issues.  however, none of the other CAA teams appear to start their seasons with four straight road games.  a couple teams start their season with three of the first four games on the road, and the rest seem to split the first four games, two at home and two on the road.  SB seems to be the only team that has their first four games on the road

They could have easilly schedule it the same for all teams in the CAA.. Just because we are new to the confrence shouldn't make a difference. SBU got screwed and Fiore should be raising hell !!!

Post by: iBOsbu on January 16, 2013, 06:08:43 pm
I agree with Chairman here... yes its not fair to start with four away games, but we just have to go and play our best.

Mind you that the OOC games are FBS money games that we scheduled! Each FBS games always brings between $300k-500k to a FCS program. If we wanted, we could have scheduled cupcake games against weak FCS teams.

Good thing is that URI should be an easy game and there are more home games to end the regular season which should help us towards getting to FCS playoffs. I am assuming top three CAA teams, may be even top four, will go to the playoffs

Post by: Chrissy D. on January 17, 2013, 11:50:46 am
 Senior day is a home game for JMU, not SBU's homecoming. First off to start bashing the coach and AD for the upcoming schedule is way off base. Fiore has done everything to pump up SBU the last couple of years ( bidding for the two home playoff gms the last 2 yrs ). Also bidding for the NIT and the NCAA womens tourny 2yrs in a row. Priore deals with recruiting players not setting schedules, the AD handles that. You guys always say that you like to play FBS teams well those are 2 of the road gms to start the season. We are not being punished by playing 2 CAA gms on the road to start the season, that's just the way it worked out. And let's wait until the official schedule comes out before we start crying. It's warm in Oct so homecoming will still be packed, I have been going to homecoming for over 10 yrs and some times it was held in Oct. The chairman is right let's not jump off the ledge, also let's not call out the AD and the coach cause it's starting to sound like one of those radio call in shows.

I would not give up FBS game for one home game with FCS team. I dont like the schedule but its much more exciting than Big South days. I have no complain with Fiore's effort so far. He has done excellent for SBU. I really hope we keep him for another many years and not lose him to bigger budget schools.

I do hope we add one or two FCS home games against NY teams in October when we seem to have lot of opening.

Post by: ecasadoSBU on January 17, 2013, 12:52:35 pm
Well...I personally wasn't bashing Priore or Jim Fiore. They are both great for Stony Brook and I wish they stay here forever... my initial reaction was more like surprised that they allowed this to happen. But you have a point: this things are out of the control of coaches, and there is also little flexibility for the AD when the program schedule two FBS games which  99% of the time tend to be away games

I also decided to wait for the official schedule because they are most likely doing their best to change the current situation.

Frankly I love this schedule. Easily the hardest we've ever played, with very winnable BIG games in there. Those 4 aways will tell us a lot. We should kick Rhode Island around (who won't?), and I'm hoping we get one more win of either BC or Villanova. We go 2-2 or 3-1, and that will immediately get us a ton of attention.

Albany as the last game could very well determine if we get an at-large bid. I LOVE that kind of atmosphere. Imagine how much fun our last matchup was, except add 2K seats. Electric.

This is the type of schedule that can really expand a fan base.

I love it too.  Think of it this way- even if we struggle against this much more difficult sched, the benefits of building this program over the next few years will be evident.  Players will get better, more experience, and youll draw better recruits. 

Thats not to say throw away this year; we will be competitive.

Though there's a lot of road trips in there, most arent too awful in terms of hours.  Not sure if any they even need to fly to, perhaps Buf?

Post by: iBOsbu on February 01, 2013, 09:14:33 am
I really love that our athletic department has scheduled FBS games against Buffalo and BC, both northeast teams, instead of teams from other part of the country. Students and locals know these names, and will generate much more interest than say if we were to play Southern Miss or North Texas. Buffalo, being a SUNY program, will obvioiusly create a battle of SUNY mentality like we have with Albany. And BC college is from Boston, and we love to beat any Boston teams in any sports at any level.

CAA teams are also much more well known in NYC and LI than Big South teams (may be Hofstra being in CAA has something to do with it!). Do Gardner–Webb and VMI really excite you? I am more excited that Towson, Albany and UNH will be visiting us this year and UD and Nova in future years. Just being in this conference with more familiar names will create much more buzz.

Good point.  UTEP was worth the trip i think.  But 10 or 12 years ago they played Jacksonville.  Not much benefit there unless you win AND youre recruiting NE florida, i think.  You win at UTEP though, diff story. 

Otherwise, youre right- Buf, BC, Army, Cuse, these are the programs to add.  Heck lets even get UMass on there, my guess is they are looking for an FCS team!

I'm not crazy about the road game against Colgate. The schedule is already ridiculous with the CAA and the two FBS games. Topping it off with a road game at a Patriot League power seems like a bit much. I would much rather they pay an NEC team for a home game, a la CCSU last year.

Now that we have a tentative 11-game schedule (although there is a chance that there might be one more game), can we start with the predictions??? ;D ;D ;D

8/31: @ Boston College (2-10)    Toss-up
9/7: @ Rhode Island (0-11)      Win
9/14: @ Buffalo (4-8)     Loss
9/21: @ Nova (8-4)    Toss-up
9/28: Towson (7-4)     Win
10/5:
10/12: @ Colgate (8-4)    Win
10/19:
10/26: New Hampshire (8-4)    Toss-up
11/2: @ Maine (5-6)    Win
11/9: Richmond (8-3)    Toss-up
11/16: @ James Madison (7-4)    Loss
11/23: Albany (9-2)    Win

5 Wins, 2 Losses, 4 Toss-ups

I think we will win 2 of the 4 Toss-ups.

My prediction is we will go over all 7-4 (6-2 CAA).

Is that enough to make it to the playoffs?

I think we had a two year home/home agreement with Colgate. They came to SBU last year and we are visiting them this year in return. So not much we could do. Next year, schedule will make much more sense.

We will be playing UConn and Cincinnati in 2014.

I think its a good idea to drop Buffalo.  at the end of the day, we need to get one of the auto-bids out of the CAA, or an at-large berth at worst.  So to me, the game with Colgate is a good one, a win in that game would strengthen our at-large spot later on, if we need at-large consideration.  so the focus of the first four games is to win the games against RI and Nova.  if we lighten up our schedule by dropping Buff, then I think its possible we can go 4-0 through the first four games.  One FBS win against BC will preserve the SB tradition of being able to beat FBS teams.  Lets get our feet on the ground in the CAA in 2013 and go from there.

8/31: @ Boston College (2-10)    Toss-up
9/7: @ Rhode Island (0-11)      Win
9/14:   home game ?????
9/21: @ Nova (8-4)    Toss-up

Albany game as the last is exciting. but once again it will be thanksgiving weekend and cold! Students wont be around... that tells me it probably wont be a sellout

I don't really like the four away games to start (as I said before)... For current and future road warriors likes many of us it doesn't make a difference... But for the casual fan that we would like to attract its gets that much harder when its already four weeks into the season and cold. Oh well. Lets go Seawolves nonetheless

The Meac http://espn.go.com/ncf/conferences/standings?confId=24&year=2012

Bethune Cookman would be a GREAT game - very good program at their level (the MEAC is full scholly, but traditionally attracts NEC-level talent).

Realistically though, Delaware St I'd expect to be the team we got. Rumors always swirling that they want to go to the AEC, and they're regional enough that both teams are aware of each other.

That said - just happy it's D1. Got promises from inside sources that the D2 was to make up for losing Hofstra, and those losses are now over. NEVER AGAIN.

"When the NCAA implemented a permanent 12-game schedule for FBS teams in 2006, it further changed the non-conference scheduling landscape. Teams went scrambling to find guaranteed games against FCS opponents to fill the schedule because any FBS program with a non-losing record is eligible for a bowl game. Kramer says FBS teams can pay less money to schedule a home game against an FCS program, whereas playing another FBS school can cost roughly $1 million. "

on another site "$483,000: Average price for Florida, Alabama and Georgia's FCS games this season. Florida paid $500,000, Georgia and Alabama $475,000 apiece."

I still have the same opinion. This is could be a big mistake for our program. Not having a FB game four weeks into the season is a problem. Freshman students wont come out in bunches as they did last year. They probably will be busy with midterms by then. For a young program like ours its important to get the attention of the incoming students so we can hook em up with Seawolves athletics. Same applies for the communities. We will follow the team anyways whether they play at home or not, but we are the %1-5% of the fan base. The casual fan will dislike this.

I HOPE I'M FULLY WRONG ABOUT THIS! :)

Go Seawolves!

The AD and coach know what they are doing so who are we to say ( just the guys who go to the gms). I am sure we had to play more CAA road gms due to it being our first yr.

CAA: Aren't we playing 4 home 4 away CAA games total 8 games?

OOC: 2 away FBS games and 1 away FCS game against PL Colgate and 1 home game against NEC Bryant.

I think in future it would be most likely similar to this year, 7 away 5 home  or 6-6 . But I dont think we will repeat starting with 4 away games ever again.

I love the schedule.  Two FBS games is rough, but they add more than just money.  Maysonet running all over 'Nova and the Big South doesn't get a lot of play.  He leaps one Syracuse dude and he's on Sportscenter.

And both the FBS games are winnable.  We won't be the favorites in either game, and we shouldn't be, but it's not like we're seeing 'Bama or Notre Dame.

The CAA move makes the schedule much more difficult, but it also gives you 6 chances to get "signature wins" come playoff time.  This time last year we had Army, Syracuse, Liberty, Colgate, and Coastal to potentially help our resume.  This year we have 9+ games.

Hammer, think of it this way-- by playing two FBS games instead of one, we generally double our chances of picking up an FBS win. There's a certain amount of prestige that goes along with a win over an FBS program. Also, recruits LIKE the idea of playing at two big-time venues instead of only one. And then there's the extra money....

I'm amazed that other conferences haven't done that already. FBS games are a necessity at the moment, and considering the massive steps the program has taken in the last few years, I'm going to give Fiore/Priore benefit of the doubt.  They've made some decisions I didn't exactly love, but in the end it worked out rather well (example: Pace & Colgate last year, with two mid-season FBS games and no bye week).

All that said, I wouldn't be opposed to an all FCS schedule.

Villanova was originally slated to face ACC newcomer Pittsburgh in the season opener, but the conference wanted to stage its Labor Day Monday game between Pittsburgh and Florida State to fulfill its TV obligations under the conference's new media rights contracts with ESPN.

That would be awesome .. I think we would have a harder  time beating SH then BC.. Starting off the season against tough opponent is  good .. Don't want to have 2 or 3 wins against Cupcake teams out of your conference just to come back and get blown out by a conference game!! Sam Houston State would be perfect match-up  for us to start the season off, at home !!!!!

Yesterday Greg Logan had a twitter argument with the guy behind bcinterruption.com @bcinterruption and he was really angry at Logan for suggesting that SHSU was better than BC last year. You should go to Logan's account and read they argument. I love Logan.. he seems to be genuinely passionate about SB Athletics! So glad he is writing for us on Newsday.

Sam Houston WAS better than BC last year. Sagarin had SH 50 spots ahead of BC. BC's RPI was 10 spots higher, but I like Sagarin.

Sam Houston State was without a doubt a  better football team then BC was in 2012/13 season. I would go even further then that. SH could beat 50% of FBS teams currently.  They have Experience, size, and coach Willie Fritz has a lot of experience . He reminds me of Priore in many ways. I wouldn't be surprised if they are the next FCS team to move up !!!!

It looks as if Priore wanted out with BC because of the 4 away games. Priore cares more about his players and fans the $$$, obviously . It's my understanding, BC agreed to Priore's request and did not have to pay $$$$ to SB, WOW!!!.. I think Priore is reading this Forum because it sounds like the majority of the Forum did not agree to the 4 away games, and priore took action !!

Sam Houston State still looking for an Aug 31 game, could be on the road against SB?

Sam Houston State sets 2013 schedule, seeks one more game
Huntsville, TX (Sports Network) - Sam Houston State football will host Eastern Washington as one of its six home games and visit Texas A&M in its 2013 schedule that was announced on Monday.

The Sept. 28 game against Eastern Washington at Elliott T. Bowers Stadium matches two teams which met in last season's FCS semifinals. Sam Houston won, 45-42.

The Bearkats also will play Texas A&M for the second straight season on Sept. 7. The Aggies won last year's game, 47-28.

The A&M game could be Sam Houston's season opener, but coach Willie Fritz and athletic director Bobby Williams are seeking to add a 12th game to the schedule, presumably one week earlier on Aug. 31.

The other home games are against Texas Southern (Sept. 14) and Incarnate Word (Sept. 21) in non-conference action, and Lamar (Oct. 12, Homecoming), Northwestern State (Nov. 26) and Nicholls (Nov. 9) within the Southland Conference.

Sam Houston State will play Stephen F. Austin in the 88th "Battle of the Piney Woods" at Houston's Reliant Stadium on Nov. 2. The past three years, the annual rivalry has drawn crowds of more than 25,000 fans to the home of the Houston Texans.

Other road games are against Southland rivals McNeese State (Oct. 19), Southeastern Louisiana (Nov. 16) and Central Arkansas (Nov. 23).

The Bearkats have finished as the FCS runner-up in each of the past two seasons.


2013 Sam Houston State Football Schedule

All Times ET

Sept. 7, at Texas A&M, TBA

Sept. 14, Texas Southern, 7 p.m.

That would be a disappointment if fiore decided against that. especially when SHSU has proven to be a great team the past couple of years. It would only be fair for a home and home. But if this turns out to be true, there can be a possible reason: SBU is committed towards playing 2-FBS per season and this might interfere with it. This year we had an open spot because Boston College dropped us. But I believe we have Uconn and another BEast team for 2014

UConn and Cincy, if I remember correctly.

SHSU would have been a great game though.

Fiore will do what is right for the program. He did the right thing already by agreeing to not visiting BC and now probably looking for a home game to start with. Students will be back. I am sure he will get a good home game to start the season on 8/31 with a packed stadium!!!

Playing two FBS teams in 2014 would be great, but.... lets take a bird in the hand right now, and sign a deal with SH State for a home and home series.  this approach would get us a great season opening home game against a great opponent.  As we have just seen with BC, those FBS teams will drop FCS teams at the drop of a hat.  so there is no guarantee that we will be able to retain the UConn and Cincy games for 2014.  just look at how quickly we lost the BC game...  Now, if we were contemplating setting up a home/home series with a lower-tier FCS school, then I'd say "no way".  but obviously, SH State is a very legit opponent.  We should go for it and do the deal for a home/home 2014 anb 2014 match up with the Bear Kats.

Lehigh just posted their 2013 schedule, they are playing 11 games, and have an opening on August 31.  while not my first choice for an opponent...  they are a very capable Patriot League contender.  Lehigh has won at least 10 straight games in each of the last three seasons and will seek its third Patriot League title in the last four years.

here is Albany's 2013 schedule, a 12 game schedule, pretty straightforward.  other than the CAA games, no major challenges except for Old Dominion.

Albany, NY (Sports Network) - The University at Albany football program will play a 12-game schedule with five home dates as it enters CAA Football this season.
The Great Danes ended their run in the Northeast Conference with two straight titles and an FCS playoff berth in 2011.

Albany's home opener at the new 8,500-seat Bob Ford Field also will be its first CAA game as it takes on Rhode Island on Sept. 14.

The Great Danes also will host Central Connecticut State (Sept. 21) in non- conference action as well as new CAA rivals Towson (Oct. 19, Homecoming), Maine (Nov. 9) and New Hampshire (Nov. 16).

as for the rules of engagement and contact in a scrimmage vs. a spring game, I think that will be up to the two coaching staffs.  seems like they would want to protect the qbs since this is not an actual game.  but at the high school level, i have seen some pretty good hitting in the "scrimmage" games that usually preceed the season openers.

Do other teams in either the FCS or FBS schedule scrimmage games at the beginning of the Football season??  Aug 31 is the start of regular season for a lot of schools. Why are we playing a scrimmage game?? I think they should just forget about that and just play the opening game a week later!.... Is it because SB could not find another school to play on the 31st so lets schedule a non eventful game with Penn !!  Makes no sense!!!

lets put it this way, a scrimmage is better than an extra week of practicing against ourselves.... its a shame that we could not find an opponent for an actual game in Week 1.  who knows, maybe the local FCS teams like Liberty and others were not willing to schedule SB?  that would have been a very good game.  Or Sam Houston State, a home and home series??  did not happen.  We did get a payoff by BC for dropping us in favor of Nova, so at least we put some cash in our pocket from that disaster.

now here is a FCS team with some balls to play both Oregon State and Wash State this fall.

Eastern Washington to visit Washington State again
Cheney, WA (Sports Network) -

Eastern Washington will play a Pac-12 opponent for the sixth straight year in 2016 when it visits Washington State.

The Sept. 3 game will be played at Martin Stadium in Pullman.

Washington State edged the Big Sky Conference team, 24-20, last Sept. 8 in the first varsity meeting between the two schools since 1908.

"It's always a fun and unique challenge to play a Pac-12 team, especially one just down the road from us," EWU coach Beau Baldwin said of the matchup between schools located less than 100 miles apart from each other. "The proximity of the schools adds to the excitement of the game."

EWU, which finished with an 11-3 record after reaching the FCS national semifinals last season, will kick off its 2013 campaign on Aug. 31 at Oregon State.

I took a ride today to the SB arena for one more last look at my seat selection and ran into a Football insider and we were talking about OFC scheduling.  After this season, Stony Brook will no longer be scheduling div2 teams to play.  I thought I would pass it along to you guys.. That is good for rankings going forward. .

Hammer, i think you are referring to Game 3 against American International Univ.  they are indeed D2, but they have a decent program.  finished 9-3 last year, 8-1 in their conference and made the NCAA D2 tourney.  they got bounced in the first round.  The game may be well placed in our schedule, its right after the UCONN game and the is the week ahead of our long road trip to North Dakota.  anyway...yes, it will be nice to focus on D1 schools from here on out.  tho I doubt Coach P will schedule two FBS opponents in one season, do you?   thanks for getting that great info tho.

That is good  news.   There  are plenty of FCS  programs  that we could  arrange a home and away  deal   namely the PL, Ivy, NEC the Big South etc.  One FBS  team per season  should be good . Strength of schedule is important  for play off  selection  .   AIC is good  at the D2 level  but  we should roll them this year by 2 TD's if we plan to be contender.

BFF. Last year we were suppose to play two FBS teams but BC backed out at the last minute so we  only played Buffalo. Stranger things have happened so you never know. I guess it all comes down to money, too. Playing two FBS teams in one year is a nice payday. I think the days of div2 are behind us if we ever want to move up in conference.  I also think our new AD has big plans for this university down the road  so I would think he would want us to have a tough OFC for name recognition as well. Just my thoughts on him!!

Two FBS schools in one season while participating in one of the toughest FCS conferences like the CAA doesn't sound like a smart thing to do... so I'm sure there is no plans for that. We already have a tough schedule as is... Adding an additional FBS school makes it even harder to get to the seven+ wins  threshold for FCS playoff qualification

Post by: Chrissy D. on May 15, 2014, 01:18:15 pm
 Yes I agree with eddie, playing 2 fbs gms will not help you make the playoffs. The move to the CAA should be enough. Besides with the new FBS playoff system and committee you are going to see less FBS vs FCS in the next few yrs or maybe none. It would make more sense to drop the D2 team for a good FCS opponent. You do not want to schedule yourself out of a playoff spot when you play in the toughest FCS div to begin with. I hope all levels stop playing lower level teams.

  I  could think of  few good FCS match ups for us - Fordham, Holy Cross maybe a home and  away with Liberty again.   Lots of possibilities.   I think as far as FBS  you will see us play  schools in the MAC, AAC, Conf USA and maybe the Sunbelt.   The major  conferences are going on their merry way  to play each other.

They got a lot of press from New York Times for the playoff run:

I believe this is an FCS rule. FCS teams typically only play 11 games. Sometimes, however, schedules allow a 12th to be scheduled. Last year was one of them, it's certainly possible that this year isn't.

Fordham would be a great scheduling option - although it's likely that they don't want to play us. Like many schools trying to make the playoffs winnability is a part of OOC scheduling. We can beat CCSU and Howard. Toledo will be tough, but they lose a few key starters (and possibly their coach, who is a stud).

I see 9 wins in that schedule, particularly with a more experienced Bednarski at the helm and Bedell returning.

all of the CAA teams played 12 regualr season games this season.  but now looking at the JMU 2015 schedule, they only have 11 games in 2015 also.  maybe it has to do with the late Labor Day weekend in 2015, this gives a late start to the season, and then with playoffs, you have to finish up your season by late Nov to be ready for playoffs.

Coach P would not be recruiting this kid.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that former Miami redshirt freshman QB Kevin Olsen has transferred to Towson.
The former four-star recruit had previously been suspended for a failed drug test and was suspended by the Hurricanes for a third time. Olsen was charged with a DUI and having a fake or stolen driver's license. Last year there were reports that surfaced that head coach Al Golden was not pleased with Olsen's development.

Added few more sections and tables (1-Conference Championships table, 2-Playoffs section and table and 3-Future non-conference opponents table);
Added the Red and Grey colors in the table headers;
Updated the future non-conference opponents with links;
Added the "Rivalries" section and added Albany and linked to the Empire Clash wiki page.

This game wont be close. On defense we will obviously give up some points, but my biggest concern is on offense. If we don't find a viable quarterback this season we could potentially get shutout...My biggest concern are injuries. Lets just get out of this game injury free. Temple is a good team!!

I think think it's great for the team to be challenged like this. This will show the coaches where they stand and where the team stands as a whole, and where it needs to improve. I am not expecting much this season again, but I wont be as disappointed if we lose against teams like, Temple, ND and Richmond and WM, even though I think by now, we should not be getting blown out against other CAA teams!!!!!!

I like that we're playing more teams out west, but why the change? We were playing AAC and MAC teams (usually during or coming off of one of their best seasons in program history, but that's another point) that were relatively close by and could be potential conference mates in the future.


Actually, I just remembered Heilbron is a west coast guy having come from Oregon St. and UCLA, I feel like these might be due to his connections. AFA, Utah St., and Oregon.

Per your AGS post, it's a four game series. I thought Fordham series is only two games. But four games even better. Local team. May be a new rivalry will start. Hope these will be competitive games. Smart scheduling. I would rather play Fordham than CCSU or Bryant.

The schedule in conference is challenging as it always is. We lucked out a bit this year, but we're guaranteed at least 6 tough games in conference annually so this is really so shocker. I just wish we had the Bryant game later in the year. I like the idea of adopting the SEC strategy where you play your "cupcake" game in the second to last week of the season.

Fordham alum are extremely arrogant and for no good reason!  They think they are right up there with the Ivy League, but they are not even close!  Hope, the Seawolves give the Rams a major beat down.  Their basketball have been floundering for ages and their football has been sliding downhill.

I also understand every four years we get the option of a 12th game. I'm usually not in favor of taking it ,but maybe we could take that game and use it as an opportunity to play an elite FCS team out of conference like a NDSU, Montana, Jacksonville St., Eastern Washington, etc. Someone like that.

while i agree it is gratuitous, dont forget that some of these pollsters are either guys who just look at scores and power rankings and returning players.  the ones that use a committee at least have experts on the ground in each conference.  and even that's not perfect.

also keep in mind- while things have changed in the last 10-15 years with respect to live streaming, FCS football is still not as high profile or broadcast and again i think some pollsters arent watching the results on the field.  even if they did, how to compare against over 100 teams.  impossible.

Interesting poll  but I tend to agree with his picks.   Saturday is a must win for us and with a wide margin  we cant slip up again,

I actually think 18th  is very generous for SB, at this time. I agree with TCSJ that Carbone needs to start throwing the ball with more accuracy if SB has any chance of making the playoffs. This conference is wild this year and last year dogs are all of a sudden this year darlings. SB as of today, still only looks like a middle of the road team in the CAA

I can see us winning  4 CAA games this year in close ones.  There are no easy teams around this  season so 4-4 in CAA with two non conference wins gives us 6-5 for 2018.   The CAA teams we should beat are  Richmond, Albany , Towson and UNH since there starting QB is out injured and may not return .  The other 4 games we will be in but not being able to pull a win . Don't be surprised if Villanova or Maine  knocks off JMU also . The Wildcats and the Black Bears are very good this year.

agreed on nova and maine.  JMU might be a runaway this year, but even dominant teams stumble, given a sport like football.

rhody is just mind boggling- the turnaround.  i like ua where they are, but know that it will still be a contest.

GO SB

You know, I'd kinda be ok with a season like that. 6-5 was my expectation this year, so if that's where we wind up I wouldn't be all that upset. Whether or not that's enough to retain Coach P is another story. If we can't win at least one of those big games against an elite team, I'd like to see us go in another direction if we can identify a suitable candidate. I'm not taking the Richmond or New Hampshire games for granted either.

I think Fordham will set the tone for the rest of the season. If SB pulls off an impressive game on the road and wins big, then there is a chance they go 7-4 and make the playoffs.

I just dont see them beating Delaware, Rhode Island, Villanova, or even Towson this year.  But who knows. Anything can happen in this league. Either way, I see coach P getting a one-year contract extension regardless if they make the playoff or not.

Of course, Utah State is first in the MW conference and are 7-1 for the season with a win over AF.

That's a fantastic schedule!! Seven home games is a fantastic number of games. We'll be coming off of two consecutive good seasons too, so attendance should be strong. Even FBS teams don't always get 7 home games.

My only wish is that instead of playing Wagner or Bryant, we challenged ourselves by getting stronger OOC opponent like an Eastern Washington, Jacksonville State, etc. If we're going to play 12 games, I wish we'd have gotten another one in against an elite opponent instead of another NEC team. Can't complain too much though. Utah State is a top 25ish FBS team right now according to the computers, so that's one you can mark in the loss column in all likelihood. There's a reason we play the games though.

I agree, VA. I would like to see SB play tougher opponents but I guess Wagner and Bryant will always be on SB schedule. Just curious if 8 wins next year reassures us a spot in the playoffs or will it be 9 because of the 12 game schedule.

10/19 bye

11/2 @ Richmond
11/9 Towson

all those home games during good weather will be good for attendance.

The new news is that UMass is on the docket for 2022! Could be a winnable game for us.

  UMass will be a good match up for us.    They are not over whelming but Oregon is another story in 2021. Thats more than an uphill battle.   The Ducks are always in the FBS Top 15 and play a high powered style offense.

Oregon we've known about for a while. We're not winning that one. If we lose by less than 5 touchdowns, that's a win in and of itself. They're pulling in top 5 recruiting classes under their current coach.

As for UMass, I'd be surprised if we didn't win that one tbh, though their program is better than you might think. They're not Uconn.
