Lets get this party started early. I haven't been around much. But the love for Seawolves football is still there.

Looking forward to a Great Home Opener this upcoming Saturday. Get to your seats early! GO SEAWOLVES!

I'm a game time decision on going to the game. Anyone think tickets will be available an hour before kickoff?

Yeah... I don't doubt it. I'm doing the same. Didn't catch the season tickets this year

With the extra seats its going to be hard (er) to sellout... but hopefully we have a good crowd out there

The  Athletic department lists the seating for the stadium at 12,300 now .  That would include about 2k in standees.   Should be plenty of tickets  available at  game time.

We can list 12.3k, but officially I don't think we can report that as the stadium's capacity since it's only 10K seats?? I'll admit though that 12.3k is a lot closer to that 15k magic number than 12k. Progress regardless though. I hope the place is packed on Saturday.

I wouldnt be surprised after the Homecoming game SB announces that we had 15K fans at the game.. I hope we do!!

They announced something like 12k for homecoming last year, but I could tell there weren't anywhere near that amount of people there. If we're willing to fudge the numbers a bit then sure.

Time will tell . If we win some games and the weather holds  we should good turnouts. Otherwise figure  the usual 5 K  or so per game except  Homecoming .

I would guess around 6000 to 8000 this game; if they tear it up the 1st home game attendance will grow.   Let's be part of this 1st win n cheer them on.....

Eight K or more would be great for a home opener .  Weather is supposed to be decent also.

I say closer to 6K. I think if we were playing Albany the attendance would be higher. Same thing if we were playing better teams in the CAA like Richmond or JMU..

nice showing.  the obvious is that its hard to tell against SHU's defense but i thought carbone improved, especially on those 5 and 7 yard slants.  and there were some dropped passes i think.

big shout out for the OL.  nice running game today, lots of big plays.  liotine jr is a nice changeup from bedell and gowins.  even the KR/PR was strong, giving us field position inside the SHU 50.

the play calling during fields' 4Q drives was very... vince young-ish.  pistol snaps with a delayed inside handoff to isolate the DE.  he made some nice runs and opened up others.  i didnt see him throw, but otherwise looked athletic/fast.

on to the negative.  there were a lot of fumbles today.  maybe they dont show up in the stats, but i counted at least 4-5.

South Fla blew up illinois; solid.
JMU put up 75 on norfolk.  UA has their hands full with monmouth.

We looked very good today. Well prepared and ready.  Carbone looks confident all of a sudden .  The run game really confuses defenses  with the amount of backs we can use.  Just an FYI Fields  will be a great one. He is so athletic and poised .

What a rout!! It felt great to be back @ the Brook on a pleasant September day. Perfect for football...

LaValle Expansion makes the Stadium look like an actual stadium. We are growing. I like it. Campus looks great with the newly finished East Side Dining.


and to top it off. Home opener 45-7!!! Goooo Seawolves!



OT: Nebraska falls to Northern Illinois; Memphis beats #25 UCLA

I'll be at the game next week- can't wait to watch this team which looks much improved.

Kudos to Carbone for cleaning up his game considerably. Hoping for a great game next week- it will be my first game in more than a year

Nice all around win by the men. Really liked how the DB's swarmed all over the place and making some nice hits. D Peart played well.  Coach Thompson deserves a big shout out for the work he does on the punt blocks. Carbone had sone nice passes and the RB's were solid with some nice blocks from the OL.

One score that was bad for CAA was that Holy Cross which almost beat UCONN blew out New Hampshire by 26 points

Hell just might be freezing over LOL


But I'm really glad he's improving. He doesn't have to be a star for us, but if he can just be careful with the ball, this team can go places. We've seen some great things through the first three games now.
