http://stonybrookathletics.com/news/2017/9/13/kline-joins-mens-lacrosse-staff.aspx

it looks like watkins is not listed on the roster, so that should still be four coaches now, with mauro, nagle, gibson, and now kline.

roster updated.  lots of changes (and a new asst coach)!  we have 55 which is massive for this program.  23 new faces.

firstly, we had Mackenzie Rope '21 listed wrong in the past, then i thought he decommitted, now he's on the roster, great news, probably just a Canadian thing.

new to the roster (that wasnt announced here at the forum):
Jimmy Morrell '21 (mid)
Brian Hannigan '21 (mid)
Jack Hannigan '20 (att)
Ian Junge '19 (def)

not on the roster:
Eddie Munoz '21 (alarming, but his twitter says SBU '21; injured?)
Mike Benasutti '21 (was committed according to LP, now at SJC)
Brody McLean '20 (transferred to towson)
Aidan Byrne '20
Mike Kadnar '20
James Rao '20
Zak Jones '20
Mike Hart '19
Jake Sheets '18
Brandon Bailey '18

Mark Ellis '17 is listed as a grad student. 

class breakdown- 1 GR, 7 SRs, 11 JRs, 15 SOs, 21 FRs

Looking forward to see what Connor Wolff (Big Strong Lefty Attacker) and Nolan Enneguess (highly rated fogo) can do.   

Any other frosh we should be counting on this season?

Without giving away any specifics on why, Munoz should be on campus for the 2nd semester and ready to play lax for the Seawolves.  I hope his high school game is an easy transition to the college game. The kid showed such great heart in the State Finals!

COB - thanks for all the great information!

Under The Radar Game: vs. Stony Brook
Princeton and Stony Brook were tied at nine entering the final quarter, but two Gavin McBride goals helped the Tigers edge the Seawolves last year. Prior to that win, the Tigers lost in 2015 and 2016 to the Seawolves, both by three goals.

Only got to see about 45 minutes of the MD scrimmage but a few things of note:

White moved to starting attack and is the teams best dodger
Dowd is the top FOGO...was winning the clamps vs the MD starter...Enneguess was the backup
Bollinger got the start in goal
Harry on the starting mid...he's the new Reh IMO...will play both O and D Mid
Rees, who is the best player they have is actually on the top man up unit
The D is still suspect, but they were playing MD...gave up lots of goals around the crease
Coaches need to work on their substitutions...Watkins used to have this down...it was a mess yesterday.  This has to be Nagle's last year.  The new Asst looks like he is 14.

I saw it differently. You have to break it up into quarters during fall ball. I saw SB beat Maryland in the second quarter and the game was close for most of the third quarter. I saw the manup unit move the ball easily against Maryland and should have had 4 or 5 goals. Instead of 1 and a pipe. I mho this can be cleaned up easily. I saw some freshmen play well and felt like the coaches were mixing alot of kids into the game. My takeaway was very positive. They played Harvard to a 2 goal game with Harvard scoring very late. Harvard game was very even.

Fall ball is about a long bench and seeing what you have

I had mostly positive takeaway too for only seeing 45 minutes...didn't really say anything negative other than the D was average and the substitutions on the fly need work.

I thought O'leary, Kaschalk and McCannell played well, I think the two middies scored a couple each. I might be mistaken. Walsh looked real smooth with 4 or 5 assists on the day.

Post by: Chairman of the Board on October 23, 2017, 12:13:41 pm
thanks.  it's early- and we dont have munoz yet- and its just fall ball.

but some guesses- in no particular order- sounds like we'll see white/CVG/haun/walsh on attack? 

grippe/matsuoka/kaschalk/mccannell at mid, perhaps some pickel/daly/lloyd?

is ellis healthy?  we've seen him in the mix at d-mid with guys like matsuoka, rees, robison, etc. 

my guess for down low is based off last year- anderson, abdellatif, pugal (LSM?), and now maybe some o'leary.  he's giant!

we are well stocked at goalkeeper- all of them can play, too.

calling for the coaches job after 1 fall ball tournament is not too positive.

I looked up other programs that we play and that I believe most would call good programs with good coaches and a bright future. Their record over the last 5 years:
Hofstra 43-30
Princeton 39-32
Fairfield 43-34
Lehigh 45-35
Stony Brook 45-35

Give me a program similiar to SB that you feel is doing better. Yes the amount of NCAA appearances is disappointing. I believe SB has made their conference tournament the last 6 years. Any college lacrosse team in the nation, 1st major goal is to make your conference tournamnet ( it is considered the post season ) .  Team has been on national radar. Give me something tangible

due to only 16 NCAA spots . It is not so easy to make. I no other sport does top 20 teams NOT GET at large NCAA bids

I would argue that a 7-7 season and making the conference tournament is a success on some level. Definitely does not meet team goals I am sure but is not the disaapointment that you paint

curious on who else you think will come, and the reasons for departure for pfohl and andrews.

if you follow the team on twitter, there are often short video clips of them working out and practicing.  looks like they are working hard on skills and putting in the extra reps.

thanks JW.

Connor Wolff '20
Niskayuna, NY / Niskayuna HS
Attack
#18

I think he's a lefty.  he's definitely a bigger body, more time to grow too.  and he runs track.

video:

for what it's worth (not much), here is the national HS computer rating: http://www.laxpower.com/update15/binboy/natlccr.php

Niskayuna 2015 #11 (21-2)
some impressive wins there over ranked teams.  lost close one to st Anthony's, another to darien, destroyed shen (twice), beat Syosset and west genny.  those are huge wins.  likely more in the next two years!

also aidan byrne from nisky is a senior attacker heading to SB next fall.




There is no way this kid runs on the track team, but possibly involved in the shotput.  The problem with the two Nisky kids coming to Stony Brook is that are on the slow side. They both have tremendous size and strength, but their lack of speed will hurt them at the next level.

sounds like CVG moves to mid (was already posted here) and perhaps some mids to attack.  didnt get the rest but if anyone else did, please let us know.  my guess is haun and white at attack, maybe walsh? 

more guesses.  mid is maybe grippe, CVG, pickel, daly, freshmen?  matsuoka should be in the mix and i think will be our new jeff reh.  any word on munoz?

Post by: laxfan42 on January 13, 2018, 03:21:31 pm
We clearly have players who can play both mid and attack. I like Walsh at X, he shined there against Havard and seems to be a special feeder. I would say Haun and Walsh at attack, need a crease guy. White and Grippe looked real strong to me as a dodgers, throw in CVG and you have your first line. another option, because we dodge from the alley White can stay on attack and I would plug Pickel in , he had some nice goals in fall. Just some thoughts, offense showed me some versatility in the fall excited to see how it looks in a few weeks.

I saw the preview on lax sports network. take away is that they felt that we would do better than last year within our conference. Also said we have a tough out of conference schedule, said Nagle recruits players who can score alot. Brought up last year's Brown game.

Possible Upset: @ Stony Brook
How did the Seawolves do against a fast-paced, high scoring offense last year? They won 25-17 against Brown. Stony Brook has the weapons to stay with the Cavaliers, and if the Virginia defense is like it was a year ago, that won’t be good.

Anyone else attend today's 5-quarter scrimmage? Great day for lacrosse!

Overall, I thought we looked pretty sloppy with the occasional highlight, still very early of course. We weren't winning many face-offs, and had 3 early starts that earned a penalty at the end of the fourth. Ball movement was minimal during most offensive efforts. Teams seemed overall evenly matched, but 'Nova appeared to have much more control on O. We took a lot of low percentage shots and either rushed or forced our way in. I did see one nice EMO x 2 play. Matsu had a pretty slick maneuver to the cage on a fast break, but didn't convert unfortunately.

Hoping we can pull things together over the next few weeks.

The two teams played in five 15-minute quarters, with Stony Brook getting the upper hand and winning three of the five quarters. However, Villanova scored a total of 10 goals in the quarters, compared to Stony Brook’s nine.

The most action-packed part of the scrimmage was the fourth period of play, in which the Seawolves gained the upper hand against the Wildcats by a score of 3-2.

The period started off with sophomore midfielder Harrison Matsuoka winning the faceoff and charging toward the Villanova zone. After a few dicey moves, including a spin move on a Villanova defender, Matsuoka ripped a shot a few yards out of the goal, going over the net.

Despite being a man down, sophomore attackman Tom Haun scored a shorthanded goal assisted by freshman midfielder Mike McCannell just 10 seconds into the Villanova man advantage.

would love to know of any feedback from drexel...

in other news.  nova upsets PSU in OT, the lions were supposed to be a top 5 team (i personally thought it was a bit high) and their arguable best player on offense was hurt, goalie switch (they play early season in that holuba hall and its terrible lighting), yet their defense gave up 17 at home.  so take that as you will but nova is historically underrated and PSU historically overrated (especially in this era).

in other news.  SHU game this weekend, Lavalle 1pm.  44' and sunny.  yes, anthony scaramucci's kid is on the team.  GO SB

Not sure I agree with the negative assessment, its only 1 game. Tale of two halves, SB got better as game went on and won the second half. I agree that first half was disappointing. I saw talent on the field. Sacred Heart is no slouch and had a winning record last year at 9-6 and will give Bryant a run for the NEC championship. They will win 10 games. We want SB to play a tough schedule and get ready for conference play. Let's face it , it is all about getting better every week and make your conference championship game and see what happens.

SHU is better, yes.  also the entire field of teams isnt as top heavy as it used to be.

also once erler got the butterflies out he showed a lot of promise. our 1v1 defense was fine but team D had breakdowns- expected this early.

i liked what i saw from mccannell.  another thing to mention is that the position-switching seems to have been mostly undone, at least on offense.  also i note that we are really running at least two true midfields, which is a good thing for depth but also has the drawback of some guys not getting into a rhythm (for example, white needs more touches).  but thats my opinion.

faceoffs were a headscratcher (won 7 of 9, then skidded) but that happens sometimes when FOGOs figure out what the other is doing.

if give up 9 to SHU in the first half, UA should put up something like 26.

Zero shot this team beats Albany.  They will lose 90% of the faceoffs and their attack will put up 25 on the SB D.   Hope I'm wrong but let's face it, Nagle has done nothing to grow the program in his 7 years.  Here's the a change in 2019.

I just rented Miracle...you never know. Beating Albany is unlikely but has to be the goal. We play 10 teams this year that are ranked or received votes this week. http://www.insidelacrosse.com/league/DI/polls Eleven if you count the Villanova scrimmage . That's how you can grow the program by getting big games. I am not an expert on what Nagle has done well or poorly but talking to friends who's sons are currently being recruited Stony Brook has some disadvantages in attracting all recruits. Take a tour at at Virgina or any ACC or Big Ten school, even go look at Fairfield or Sacred Heart.

It's a great schedule no doubt.  Just don't think the coach does enough to attract or keep talent.  Sure SB is at a disadvantage vs Duke, MD, UNC, Cuse and some of the big ten schools but you cant say SH has a better campus or facilities than Stony Brook.  SH plays on basically a high School field. 

Also, How come Priore can attract kids from Texas, Florida, California, NYC and Long Island, Senk has kids from all over the North East, Boals attracted kids from NC, PA, Ohio and NY in his first year.   And let's not forget what Spallina has done or the woman's program.   Nagle just doesn't have what it takes and as Bill Parcells said, you are what your record says you are.  Time for him to go IMO.

Not a big LAX fan by any means (trying to learn!) but the poor start for the team has me worried. I've been waiting for a season where they really establish themselves with Nagle and it isn't there yet which has me concerned. It's even more glaring given the tremendous success Spallina has had in such a short time.

Again, this is just coming from a casual fan who is growing more impatient in recent years.

Looking forward to watching the game tonight on Big Ten Network. Newsday had the game 2 goals apart in 4th quarter before wheels fell off

I just looked at the 2017 All Long Island Lacrosse Teams:
3 going to Maryland
3 to Virginia
3 to Cornell
3 to Stony Brook
2 to Hopkins, Hofstra and Duke
rest of list is just 1 kid per school

I might be wrong but thats pretty good for SB. Need to see it on the field but the talent is getting recruited.

just wanted to mention how much improvement we've seen from daly.  he's gone from a second middie to a team leader, his bull dodge looks like corpo's, his shot is improved, and in both losses he's taken the team on his back and put in a goal in a time of need.  he's going to be a factor for us this year and next.

it's nice to see an athlete come of age in an era where kids either start right away, or transfer.

Problem one is Nagel. Look at his track record. He made the NCAA tournament once some years ago, and that was with the remanence of Coash Sowell’s team.  Coach Sowell has gone onto continued growth and success at Navy while SB and Nagel continue to rebuild. Second, Nagel does get some good recruits, but after a year or two of Nagel lax they transfer, which brings us back to problem one.

Here are the problems.
1-Terrible campus life for the student athletes. Tough to overcome when it comes down to recruiting.
2-Having Albany in our conference. We have continued to be the 2nd best team in this conference.
   Kudos to the Albany program. They have had a nice run at our expense.
Lets see if we can get on a run of our own. Very young and promising.

Looked like we were still struggling with the fundamentals. We lost nearly every face-off through the first three quarters and never seemed to pull out of the scrambles with a ground ball. Philbin won several FOs against their second-tier guy who kept getting called for illegal procedures or false starts. Also, am I the only fan concerned about our ability to clear the ball? Seems like other teams are doing it effortlessly while we have our poles trying to bull dodge through 3 defenders hoping to avoid getting stripped while our middies are running away with their backs turned aloof to struggling defenders attempting the clear. It's painful to watch and I'm concerned that it doesn't seem to bother anyone on the sidelines.

Matsuoka wasn't dressed to play yesterday. Not sure what's going on there.

Agreed, SB has obstacles to recruiting, but others with the same limitations do much better on the same Island. Coach Sowell brought us to the ncaa semi-finals and continues to excel at Navy.  SB girls lax and Coach Spallina are constantly ranked and in the tournament.  Hofstra historically does better at a higher price school in a less desirable neighborhood. Adelphi, NYIT, Post are always ranked in the top 20 of D2 and win national championships. Nagel’s track record is clear, it’s not going to get better. Time for a change.

on the topic of recruiting- and i know this is more normal these days, but here's some changes in the last few months- just based on commitments and the current roster:

off the roster: conor wolff, devin andrews, john pfohl, john ehlers, mike benasutti, brian hannigan, aberdeen allen

This season is lost. Albany has really taken the throne in northeast lacrosse and won't be relinquishing it anytime soon with the way they recruit and develop players.

Just have to hope the young players continue to develop. Stony Brook should be an elite program given where we draw talent from. I'm a guy who is trying to get into lacrosse so won't pretend to know the nuances of the game but it is incredibly painful to get smoked by Hofstra in any sport. I know the team is young but this was an awful outcome.

The mediocrity has got to stop. It's time for Heilbron to make his first major lacrosse move and find a coach that can develop talent and win games. The men's lacrosse program is lagging behind the other major sports at the university which should absolutely not be the case.

Heilbron should be on the phone trying to find our next coach ASAP.

5 total SOG isnt good.  especially when hofstra had 6 in the first quarter.  we had zero in the first and fourth.

for shots, yanes/aldermann/tierney totalled 31.  we got off 20.

we had three opportunities on EMO 6v4, which must be unprecedented.  we only capitalized one.  we were otherwise 2/12 EMO. 

also one faceoff we won because the ball went out of bounds.  two others i think we won on a technical foul.

You can't take shots without possessing the ball. We have started every game this season down 3 or 4.  Defense never getting a breather. Offense never finding it's rhythm. The coaches are preaching faceoffs don't matter but the numbers say otherwise...

Heard the OC (Gibson) refused to coach last night and said nothing while his players were looking to him for guidance. That goes a long way to explain 2/12 on the EMO. As a coach, I have heard Gibson is so demoralizing and demeaning that I would guess he has  ruined more talented players than he has ever developed.

If I refused to do my job, I would get fired. I do not know why this situation warrants a different outcome.
Nagle, to his credit continued to coach and tried to be a positive presence on the field.

At the very least, the AD needs to look at the OC situation here.

BIG, BIG, BIG shout out to SB girls #1 in the country. Nice job girls and Coach Spallina.
The numbers have been reported, they are public record. Something like Nagle $210k, Marr of Albany $145k, Spallina SB Girls $145k. SB should grab either one and give them a $100k rise. If we could get ½ the results of Albany or SB girls that would be a huge improvement . We know where Nagle lax is going, no question time for a change.

these are good kids, they are graduating, i'm sure they're smart and are working hard.  there's more to life than just sport.  but of course, we all want to see our team win.

Yes, he had big offensive production numbers with Rogers, Eastwood, Schultz, Rooney Corpolongo and Bitzer.
Tell me what OC would not have huge numbers with that talent pool on the offensive end ???? Yet they never won the America East with those guys. How come???

A good coach adjusts and gets the most out of his players even if he does not have the level of talent he has had in the past. Don't cry about it and not do your job! Adjust your game plan with an offense that best suits the talent pool.

To the poster who mentioned lifeless players with the answer being 6:00 am workouts. You are not understanding what you are seeing out there. These kids run more miles than the cross country team.

This season is lost. Albany has really taken the throne in northeast lacrosse and won't be relinquishing it anytime soon with the way they recruit and develop players.

Just have to hope the young players continue to develop. Stony Brook should be an elite program given where we draw talent from. I'm a guy who is trying to get into lacrosse so won't pretend to know the nuances of the game but it is incredibly painful to get smoked by Hofstra in any sport. I know the team is young but this was an awful outcome.

The mediocrity has got to stop. It's time for Heilbron to make his first major lacrosse move and find a coach that can develop talent and win games. The men's lacrosse program is lagging behind the other major sports at the university which should absolutely not be the case.

Heilbron should be on the phone trying to find our next coach ASAP.

I agree, but it is all about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ right now and I dont think SB is in the financial position to hire and fire at will...

BIG, BIG, BIG shout out to SB girls #1 in the country. Nice job girls and Coach Spallina.
The numbers have been reported, they are public record. Something like Nagle $210k, Marr of Albany $145k, Spallina SB Girls $145k. SB should grab either one and give them a $100k rise. If we could get ½ the results of Albany or SB girls that would be a huge improvement . We know where Nagle lax is going, no question time for a change.
If it's true Nagle is pulling down $65k more per year than Spallina, that's a major misallocation of salaries.

Throwing in my .02 here since I played for Nagle (& Gibson). Players respect Gibson and enjoy playing for him... not so much the case for Nagle.  No one enjoys playing for that guy as he never once held himself accountable or took any responsibility (I can't imagine all the blame he is dishing out this week at practice). All former players I have spoken with over the last few days are embarrassed by the current state of the program and want him gone.

last 4 years 27th,5th,5th,16th in the country in scoring. I believe coach Gibson was there for that.

Yes, he had big offensive production numbers with Rogers, Eastwood, Schultz, Rooney Corpolongo and Bitzer.
Tell me what OC would not have huge numbers with that talent pool on the offensive end ???? Yet they never won the America East with those guys. How come???

A good coach adjusts and gets the most out of his players even if he does not have the level of talent he has had in the past. Don't cry about it and not do your job! Adjust your game plan with an offense that best suits the talent pool.

To the poster who mentioned lifeless players with the answer being 6:00 am workouts. You are not understanding what you are seeing out there. These kids run more miles than the cross country team. They are all banged up, washed out, and completely demoralized. Beating a dead horse never accomplishes much!
Nagle hasn't adjusted his approach in 7 years...they game is passing him by

I couldn’t agree more. Being a former player who has played for this current staff and Sowell. The problem starts and ends with Nagle . There is no doubt in my mind he is taking zero responsibility, and throwing blame around at a couple guys in the locker room. Since the day he came to SB, he has systematically broken the program. Don’t know if we have the statistics on this, but it would be appalling to see the number of players who transferred out of the program since he came on board. From Cutting guys who played/started in the NCAA Tourney, to driving guys like Faceoff specialist Kyle Rowe (who went to Duke), Tom Monzo Defense, Connor Duddy, etc. out of the program. There isn’t enough space in the forum to discuss all that is wrong with his tactics. In my time there, the players had zero joy in playing for him. The players (at least the years I was there) all respected Gibson and valued his opinion. To Gibson’s defense, You can’t do too much when you have a guy like Nagle at the helm.

Triathlete has it correct, I believe any player on this roster (or any recent roster) would love to meet him in a dark alley.  Not a single name on the roster enjoys playing for Gibson.

Add Ben Randall to the list of talented kids who transferred out, went to a better school and became an All American.  It’s painful to watch Nagle on the sideline.  Team calls a TO and he never even talks to the kids.   He pouts like a baby and just argues with the Ref’s.  Never actually coaches.

Is it true he makes the kids all string their sticks exactally the same?  You think Marr is telling Connor Fields how to string his stick?

Thank god. As a former player who transferred out, I have to say, playing for nagle was the worst year of lacrosse I have ever experienced. The man actually sucked the life out of the sport. I can't think of one guy in the locker room who respected him and actually wanted to play for him. He does not hold himself accountable and degrades his players and puts the blame solely on them. Track record speaks for itself. When I was first here my freshman year we were ranked top ten nationally. It is an absolute shame as to where this program has went since. I think we all know what is coming and it is long overdue.

The list of those that actually left can go on and on. Inside the Locker room, there was another large majority of those who pursued transferring out ASAP. Fact of the matter is he isn’t a good teacher of life for the team. If he doesn’t like you, he makes it known to all. A large jolt of support from the recent alumni (since his hiring) will return when he is gone.

there certainly are more fans coming out of the woodwork... it's too bad that it takes some bad losses to cause it.

in other news.  just three weeks ago was the "beware the underdog darkwolves" article, about our optimism for our defense.  that's cringeworthy now, with 58 goals in the last 4 games.  77 if you go back to last year's first round UA game.

we also had seven different players take faceoffs- which doesnt bother me as much as the fact that 4 of them were poles, who never took faceoffs before.  were just over .300 for the year.

Transferring is now a big issue. You know half these kids are already planning next year’s exit. If they dump Nagle now some of the players may choose to stick it out. If they don’t dump Nagle now, the players will figure they’ll keep Nagle (because they always do), so I got to plan my exit.  This of course will lead to an even worst team next year.

Not to best timing for a hiring freeze...from Newsday

Updated March 1, 2018 6:19 PM
By Candice Ferrette and Scott Eidler

Stony Brook University will impose an indefinite hiring freeze effective immediately to address an ongoing structural budget deficit, officials announced Thursday morning.
The plan will impact nearly all positions at Long Island’s largest public research university that are funded by the state budget. The decision comes after several other austerity measures did not produce the needed savings, officials said.
SBU President Dr. Samuel L. Stanley Jr., in an exclusive interview with Newsday, said the university faces an $18 million shortfall in its total base funding due to contractual salary increases that were negotiated at the state level and are currently unfunded in the state budget. The freeze also will impact administrators, Stanley confirmed.

We were within 2 goals of Penn State on the road in the 4th quarter before the game fell apart.  My point being do not discard a win.

zach ambrosino, a starting close defenseman, was ejected on the last play against cuse and may be ineligible for the tues game against manhattan.  should be eligible for our game.

the wahoos may have a goalie competition 5-6 games into the season.

lars tiffany is the former SB head coach who did well here from 05-06, and left for brown (his alma mater) and just at the end of 10 seasons, put together a dominant F4 team that couldve won the title, complete with a tewey award.

Groundballs and faceoffs critical, need to compete for possessions. They do that--- transition O, 6 on 6 and defense will do their jobs. 12 to 9 SB

Tough game for the team, nice to see the fight from the kids.

I read there were some ejections in the game, one of which was Ambrosino on UVA. I believe this player has already been ejected in another game this year.  You should read coach Tiffany’s synopsis of this guy on the UVA team roster  website. Read between the lines a little and he essentially is saying they have an uncontrollable meat head on starting defense.

This season is lost. Albany has really taken the throne in northeast lacrosse and won't be relinquishing it anytime soon with the way they recruit and develop players.

Just have to hope the young players continue to develop. Stony Brook should be an elite program given where we draw talent from. I'm a guy who is trying to get into lacrosse so won't pretend to know the nuances of the game but it is incredibly painful to get smoked by Hofstra in any sport. I know the team is young but this was an awful outcome.

The mediocrity has got to stop. It's time for Heilbron to make his first major lacrosse move and find a coach that can develop talent and win games. The men's lacrosse program is lagging behind the other major sports at the university which should absolutely not be the case.

Heilbron should be on the phone trying to find our next coach ASAP.

I agree, but it is all about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ right now and I dont think SB is in the financial position to hire and fire at will...

BIG, BIG, BIG shout out to SB girls #1 in the country. Nice job girls and Coach Spallina.
The numbers have been reported, they are public record. Something like Nagle $210k, Marr of Albany $145k, Spallina SB Girls $145k. SB should grab either one and give them a $100k rise. If we could get ½ the results of Albany or SB girls that would be a huge improvement . We know where Nagle lax is going, no question time for a change.
If it's true Nagle is pulling down $65k more per year than Spallina, that's a major misallocation of salaries.
Spallina's new 5 year deal pays him over $200K per season per today's Newsday.  I'm sure it's at or right above Nagle's pay.

guess that was wrong huh?  also take a guess who wont be dressing next week (same as last week).

the bad- we again came out and went down 3-0 rather quickly.  the fisticuffs absolutely killed us.  that and we missed a couple of open shots, and if we win a draw, we have to pick up the GB.  we cant let any player, any, get 10 points when they only have the ball for 30+ minutes.  we also either didnt slide on a few goals, or we were late (very hard to do against a team like UVa).

one thing i think we need to work on is getting topsided on the GLE.  if we could either v-hold, slide timely, or play two handed, we may have won this game.  maybe have a lefty on their righty under the GLE. 

on the good side.  daly is stepping up again.  grippe is good off the bench.  bollinger is improving.  our transition offense enabled us to nearly erase a 7 goal deficit quickly.

Have some work to do. Clearly need to greatly improve on faceoff and groundballs. Good news is that if we win Sunday, we are tied for first. Also, that in last 3 of 4 games we have had 8 or 9 assists in each game. Same pace as Albany. Need to keep that rolling into conference play

Chairman, I think you maybe right. OOC play seems to have prepped this team and they are improving. I liked the fight shown against Virginia who is still in the top 10 and from the stat feed it seemed like they fought hard on the road. Need to keep it rolling against Hartford. Big game to get this Saturday with Albany up next. 2 and 0 in league play would be a great place to be for this team. GO SB!

Imagine what they might accomplish if they had a coaching staff they wanted to play for? If they were actually enjoying playing the game and not wishing for April 28th while hoping they don't make the playoffs.

Stony Brook - Let me start by saying this isn’t some kind of endorsement of Stony Brook, where I tell you they’re going to turn it around and show up in polls and all that. Stony Brook is not a contender. However, they are most definitely trending in the right direction. Stony Brook started the season 0-4, and managed only TWO goals against Hofstra. This team was very bad. But they righted the ship with a won over Fairfield, then played UVA to within one goal, and got a win over UMBC on Saturday. None of the team’s top ten scorers this year are seniors. In term’s of efficiency, here are some teams the Stony Brook offense ranks AHEAD of: Army, BU, Richmond, and Providence. They have some very difficult games left (Albany, UVM, Princeton just to name three), and they’re going to lose all three of those games. But Stony Brook is much improved over the past few weeks and deserves a trending up mention.

Going from abysmal to just fair doesn't merit any sort of extension for Nagle once his contract runs up. He's had more than enough time to build a consistent contender, and he hasn't.

I've been impressed with UVM which has elevated itself to the #2 team in the conference pretty quickly. Now of course they got spanked by Albany which will happen to every AE team.

Ultimately, barring an amazing run to end the year it's time for a change at Stony Brook. Find a former player with strong recruiting ties in Long Island and go from there. This is still a premier job.

ill make the argument again.  last four games have all been 1-2 goals.  won 3 of the last 4.  seemed to solidify bollinger in cage.  we're playing a lot of underclassmen.  ehlers is back on the roster and is another option for us at the faceoff (protesto is one of the best in the country).  every game we seem to have 8-9 players on the board (none are afraid to dodge), which will pay dividends when the temp increases.

maybe the turmoil is behind us.  (but UA looms)

PS hartford isnt the best team around but they move the ball as good as any.  we stuffed them and especially in the second half, we rotated well., took away good shots.  bollinger won this game for us by standing on his head in the 4th. GO SB

Solid team win with every facet improving from week before. Team has put themselves in a good position in AE by going 2 and 0 prior to Albany game. Playoffs look good, need to get to the #2 slot. Here is my 10 point plan for this week and to get 2 seed.
1) Take 1 week at a time
2) Enjoy this week, you are playing the #1 team in the country
3) Enjoy this week, you are playing the #1 team in the country. That has to be every player's dream when they are playing PAL or playing 6 games of travel ball over July 4th weekend in 100 degree heat. Go have fun
4) Let's be realistic, no one expects us to win. I do not want to win this game anyway, I want to beat them in the AE championship game. This game is all about getting better and learning how to beat them. Gain confidence. Make some saves,grab some ground balls, play some defense and score some goals. Connor Fields will get his, we need to stifle Tehoka-get in his head. Body him back, he seems immature to me. I think you can frustrate him. We cannot let others beat us. Need to win some faceoffs, show we have a chance. Not like last year's playoffs. Target has to be 16-10 ( I will even take 18-10) Here is logic, we can get 3 goals better on offense and defense by playoffs. That get's us to an even draw. This team has been improving. Rent Rocky 4....even Drago bleeds.
5) Send a message that we are the #2 team in the conference as predicted by Inside Lacrosse
6) Go have fun. Did I tell you that you are playing the #1 team in the NATION. I would run through a wall
7) Albany game will be good prep for St Johns and Princeton
8) 2 OOC games get us ready for Vermont who got crushed by Albany
9) 4-2 record in regular season seems likely with 2-0 start
10) Need to keep working and improving. Starting to like this team's Mojo

ps....this team is currently in first place

I dunno that's pretty damning- the transfer rate out of the program is not good. That's as explicit a criticism of the program as I have seen. I think something needs to change.

To me its very disturbing when multiple former players are saying that playing on the team is not a joyful experience. How bad is it that a freshman, within weeks of getting on campus, is thinking it was a mistake to come to SBU to play lax?

Also, the comment about SBU not having the chance to win a DI championship is true but that's a bit of a stretch to tout the ability to win a DIII championship as an advantage. I don't think DI players are running to DIII to win championships.

I still do not have a good feeling about the current direction of this program. First and foremost kids should enjoy being a part of the university and team. Success is important but I want a program that people want to be a part of. I'm obviously not privy to the inner workings of the team but the comments on this message board and articles like this really make me uncomfortable.

UA Lax is getting better and better with the passing of each year and they really stepped up their recruiting. Most likely because they like the HC ..SB should be right right up there with UA  by now considering Long Island is a breading grounds for Lax...

the team were at the time. All programs have players leaving for what ever reasons. I have always
said our campus life has a lot to do with the unhappiness and the transfers.

Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2018 Season
Post by: Chairman of the Board on April 10, 2018, 10:02:40 am
a few thoughts from a non-coach...

topside.  i know we are missing a starter but our poles need to close the gate on the GLE.  basic 101.  the inside roll is a much lower angle shot and harder to feed.

princeton inverted often.  we zoned but we left mids open creating inside shots, backside feeds.  they're very shifty and picked off and created mismatches (o'leary on sowers).  we got inside rolled and sometimes slides came, sometimes not.

when we jumbo, we absolutely have to press the gloves (while our mid recovers to the crease).  if you dont, you've given them a free pass to an open backside mid. 

a few draws we won, we couldnt pick up the GB.  that's a FOGO's entire existence, so we need to fix this.  even one of the parents shouted "faceoffs win games" during a lull. 

there was even a moment (two in fact) where our mid didnt even chase an open GB, or get off the field quickly when time was of the essence.  so i question the desire.

trail checks.  have plagued this program for 15 years.  even happened to the 2010 team.  saturday wasnt even that bad! (maybe one or two)

our slap checks are getting dangerously close to slashing.  the refs let both teams play and called very little (3 total flags).  this was a physical game and we responded in kind, so intensity was good.

we had too many unforced errors (throwing the ball away) for this stage in the season.  princeton was much more efficient (i think only 5 TOs).

this team has 9-10 able bodies on offense.  and usually white doesnt get a touch until the second quarter.  to me it seems white is a threat on the wing dodge, and he scores it nearly half the time he gets a clean shot. 

on that note, if we are going to shoot into the goalie's stick, then let's at least bounce it, shoot off screen, get him off the pipe, etc.

which brings me to long poles on offense.  saturday there was one set where we had two out there.  and i dont think i've seen one take an outside shot (and score).  maybe i missed it.

i understand we like the outside shot, however, maybe we should pull our poles off and get on some of those mids, get them into a rhythm by the first quarter, not the third.  id rather see CVG, pickel, or white shoot than a pole.

anyone notice we seem to down 3-0 in nearly every game?  when you cant win draws, it's a recipe for disaster; there's no catching up.  and yet this team has pulled through and won 4 games.

weak hands.  if our shorts cannot use the off hand, we wheel the ball around for 90 seconds until we throw it away.  teams know this by now, with all the film out there.

getting hung on the crease.  it happens, but it happens a lot to us.  it's not really bad but it costs time.  lot's of it (in games where we fall behind).  i havent seen a slide off the crease or a goalie double.

urgency.  down 7 goals in the fourth, we didnt seem to have any urgency to dodge, isolate, pick, go to the cage, etc.  i've seen this a few times.  i suppose the UVa game we rallied.

man up defense.  down a few goals, we let them hold the ball for over a minute and didnt pursue the riskless double team.  in fact, princeton did the opposite- pressed us out to the perimeter, and that was even strength, not man up.

i dont know if the staff lost the players, or the players lost the staff, or both.  but we came out of the locker room at half lifeless and it showed.  no pep.

otherwise, EMO was good, clearing, SOG%, etc. GO SB

well since we clearly have faceoff woes (80/183 for .304%), we are #71 of 71 (dead last and it's not close), i thought to look to next year to stay positive.

we have five players coming in who have taken faceoffs before (deskewicz, walsh, harrell, mcmahon, miele), with two (deskewicz and harrell) being what one normally considers a specialist, maybe miele (dont know enough).

deskewicz video: http://www.ncsasports.org/mens-lacrosse-recruiting/new-york/ballston-spa/ballston-spa-high-school/austin-deskewicz

harrell video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=129&v=OV0Ees3xzxQ

so there's some promise there.

Is it crazy to think that Stony Brook would be a top 20 team if they were even just average at faceoffs? Looking at the stats, their faceoff woes account for, on average, a 9 possession swing. Not an easy way to win games.

Stony Brook looks better every game. With goalie play like that we can stand toe to toe with anybody. I thought the defense played great and the offense did enough. I think they had 3 or 4 pipes that could have made the score look much different

Tied for first in the conference and an RPI of #34. Just 4 more wins and maybe we can have a bobble head night for Bollinger.

Well deserved for Pickel Jr. He has been clutch for this team all year. I would have like to see the Rookie of the Week to go to Stony Brook as well. They gave it to an UMBC player who had 3 goals. No love for our freshmen yet.

McCannel had 3 goals for the 2nd time and Walsh went 1 and 3 for his 5th game with 3 assists. I woud have went with McCannel over the UMBC kid because the UML win was against a team with a winning record.

The more we win the individual accolades will come with Bollinger getting recognized last week. As unimportant as these awards are in the big scheme, these awards help with national recognition and possible recruiting.

By the way, we win Friday and we are 7 - 7 after an 0-4 start. That's pretty impressive. The last 3 losses coming from two ranked teams and a quality Princeton team.

Good luck at Binghamton!!

100% agreed.  if not more.

anyone notice- in each game, we NEVER have anyone out in front scoring.  because we have a lot of threats and share the ball.  this will be good for us down the stretch.  we just have too many scorers for scouts to keep track of!

we still however have a faceoff problem, and also we tend to either go down early or surrender goals quickly (both related to the first problem).  if we button this up, we can beat another top 20 team.  can we beat UA?  not sure but BC did and so did Yale.

on to bingo.  this is the usual bingo squad, despite new coaching.  always stingy, never moves the ball well.  they won last year here 6-5.  go get em boys

close!

under 10g = victory

BU was very sloppy with the ball tonight.  looks like were getting VT next week. 

i cant believe BC torched the #1 by 5 and then doesnt make the conference tourney in the AE.

Crazy how after such a mediocre start, we're the 2 seed in the AE and regular season champs! Hopefully our guys can go on a run.

it's true.  it's a long season.  longer than it used to be.  no time to ramp up for early games.  weather vastly different in early feb than in early may.  kids transferring more.

anyway, 0-4 in feb and then the turning point- the blowout against hofstra.  we turn a nice win against FU and then hang with UVa.  our only bad game after that was princeton.  we put in some bad halves/quarters (VT, UA, UML) but really princeton was the only abysmal effort after feb.

to me it's interesting that CVG scored 7 against brown last year in the crease, and this year totals 8 (out of the crease).

vermont's got the offense, the defense, the goalie.  i think this one get's decided at midfield- faceoffs, SSDM, etc.  GO SB

Embarrassing to lose to UVM in lacrosse. Overall, this season left a horrible taste in my mouth. The blowout loss to Hofstra was the low point but this was close.

Nagle has got to go. These kids deserve better. It wouldn't be as sad if it wasn't for the ridiculous success that Spallina is having.

so much for my rule of 10!  ::)

not as great season but a lot returning and coming in and the march turnaround was positive.

uml went up 7-5 against ua at casey (i think the zone worked), but fell 15-10.  that program has come a long way rather quickly.

Wolfie, calling this loss embarrasing is a little harsh. UVM is the 22nd team in the country with a 5th year senior all american who had one of his best games. It was a 1 goal game to start the 4th quarter. The loss to Hofstra was rough but this team responded after that.  I would call Hofstra's season embarrasing. The future is bright with 9 of 10 starters returning. Co-regular season 2018 champs with majority of team returning should be a great foundation for 2019

The womens team success should be applauded, compare them to any teams outside a select few and the view does not look so good. They have been steam rolling all competition.
