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.

This.
There’s no reason SB shouldn’t have success like Albany, or more given location and academics.
