We're good, UNH is good, the turn out this year needs to be massive and I think it will be. Looks like the weather will cooperate too. If there was ever a year we could break 13k I think this is it.

I saw Josh Valentine on the sideline last week dressed, but no gear on.. He looked fine, bouncing around, jumping up and down, looking like he was having a good time. I noticed he is once again not on the depth chart for this game. Just curious if he is out for the season and why. If so will he get a medical redshirt for this year..

If it was a disciplinary or academic issue he wouldn't be on the sidelines so from what I gather it is either an injury or an illness. The way the medical redshirt works is if a player plays only 10% of the total games due to an injury or an illness then the team could ask the NCAA to give the player the extra year

Hammer another item for you I understand that former AD Jim Fiore has a son starting as a RB on Ward Melville's JV

Campi, yes. Mike Fiore, son of Jim Fiore is an an incredible running back. He's a 10th grader and will be a tremendous asset when he goes to varsity. he is a good kid, too!!!

That 1 on 1 with Carbone & the relationship the coach P & has with his father; it really leaves you thinking is it who you Know that gives you the opportunity within the program.  I like Cabone I think the he has a lot of heart n has improved a lot the last year at SBU.

I have heard whispers that a few players families had sponsor sign on with SBU.

I also spoke with a few players parents about this & they are concerned about this issue & the way it may impact who gets playing time...

I am from the old school program that hard work & talent gives you the opportunities; but today it's all about the financial support within the program...

Times have change & i am getting older; if this is true i do not like the direction how college football is going...

UNH has a real good coaching staff do not underestimate there game plan;  the QB & TE tore us up last year and we not adjust to this in the 2nd half & they rack up serious points.

I watch game film on UNH & there current QB loves to keep the ball & he throw on the run.   This game will be a challenge for our DB & who ever controls the ball more  is going to win this game.   If your always looking for that big play' you will loose this game; clock management & long drives & moving the chains and SBU will win this game.

So basically what you are saying is. If your donate enough money to the football program, we will start your kid?? This sounds a lot like the PAL league. This could be the case with Carbone considering he had no scholarship offers coming out of high school, But you dont know if this is really the case with him or not, just hearsay..

I understand football programs struggle to raise money on Long Island and school have to do what needs to be done to stay a float. But to make someone a starter because of a large booster, is not my idea of rooting and supporting a team. I used to see that all the time in the Youth programs and it drove me crazy and i would call coaches out on that ..I hope SB doesnt fall into that trap..

If SB can stop the bonehead penalties they have a shot at beating UNH. They must also trust Carbone arm. If he is doing well, and i believe he will do well, let him throw the ball, something coach P did not do at the end of the 4th Q last week..

I hope there is an administrator of this forum and that he/she removes SBUFootball and his baseless and petty post re sponsors, players and playing time from this site.  This forum ought not be used by a player's disgruntled parent to malign the program, the coaches, other players and their families with such baseless and nonsensical accusations. What a disgrace!

So now SBUfootball u a claiming that it is pay to play, unreal.
I find it laughable that you make such statements. I have heard of big time schools paying to get talent but never heard of a parent paying so little johnny could play. If u are that disgruntled then find another school. If u dont think the coach is good thats one thing, but now u are accussing people of breaking ncaa rules. Grow up dude.

This board got spooky quite. Me and about 30 friends will be at the SB game tomorrow and we are tailgating in our usual lot instead of eating inside of wolfstock. The gates are open for the general public this year, so we will still mingle inside the den and chat.. We decided to cater food this game instead of the usual barbecuing. It should be fun win or lose.

Lets not get personal on this forum fellas. People are still entitled to say what they want, right or wrong. If you dont like what someone is saying just ignore that person. We dont know for a fact what that poster said is true or not. Just take it with a grain of salt and move on..

UNH is ranked 12th in this week polls. They always play us tough. A win here will spring us back in the national rankings.

SB has the tools to do win this game. Limit the penalties and mix things up on offense and we should score some points on UNH. Defense needs to be careful of the long play. UNH Q has a strong arm and will throw the ball deep..

Post by: Chairman of the Board on October 14, 2017, 09:16:44 pm
again this week, the OL gives the 'bone plenty of time to throw, AND opens holes.  liotine/bedell is a great 1-2 punch.  third quarter drive changed the game, bedell's reverse.  then, the red zone strip (henderson), into a highlight reel throw from 'bone to jackson, and then more great defense and a pick (segure). 

the team seemed to get better on every play in the second half.  great pressure, especially on third down, in that fourth Q.  the defense was great today, good tackling, but again the OL had a big day. 

great job SB.  great job today. 

also, did we lose bolden and how is that hammy.

  Other than the USF game this was the best they played as a complete team all season.  Great defense in the 2nd half and the offense keeps chugging along .  Our punt unit is great those kicks are pro style high and lots of hang time.

A signature win. A team that struggles in second half comes from behind in second half to dominate a very good team. Excellent performance in all 3 phases of game.  And props to the big boys on the OL who are quietly having a very good season. Big game in Richmond in 2 wks.

Terrific game. Short of a sell-out, but the crowd had great energy. I can't imagine anyone going to that game not wanting to go to another SB game.

Excuse the "get of my lawn" moment (minor observation), but am I the only one that finds it strange that the PA plays music in between SB offensive plays? It drowns out the announcer, and I would think it's distracting to the offense as it calls the next play on the line.

Congrats cuz (#21) because if it wasn’t for you , and that crazy ass defense in the second half , we would’ve lost that game. Love you cuz, now let’s get ready for Richmond...

Another tale of two halfs. I think the only complete game was against Sacred Heart, but as we say a win is a win. Great job all around for the adjustments. OL opened a nice hole for SB to get through and then he was off! As many of us have said, we just need to keep feeding him as much as we can because he seems to get stronger (and not taking away from 33 or 23).  Bolden another strong night as well!!!

The CAA stats currently have something we have not seen in a LONG time and that is the offense is leading or at the top in a lot of the categories. Good for them.

Glad to see another local product NC get a chance to kick, and looks like AL is struggling. Hopefully with two weeks off he can get it back together. Taking any points off the board in a game can hurt us.

Also, as someone else stated the punt team is doing very well and we pinned them back on several occasions and twice we got points from that so, giving credit to them for covering the ball and 57s punts. So, all of the three categories helped us win this game IMHO.

 As I stated  earlier this was a total team win . Everyone contributed and in the 2nd half we were playing on all cylinders.  Great job !

Post by: Wolfie_MD on October 15, 2017, 10:43:27 pm
Great win- love what the offense is doing. Carbone continues to impress me. The second half was full of good adjustments from Stony Brook. The running game really impressed. The atmosphere was great and I hope it carries over. This team is fun to watch and that's something I haven't been able to say for a long time. There are just great athletes on both sides of the ball.

Was at the game and thoroughly enjoyed it!! We avoided the second half meltdown and played a complete half of football to make the comeback and get a great win. I think we can finally start talking about the possibility of the P word come the end of November. The crowd was probably about the 12k they said, but seemed smaller than usual now that we have those extra seats  in the north endzone. Great game all around!!

The fact that UNH remains ranked is a joke.  Their FBS win is over winless 0-5 GA Southern.  They lost to Holy Cross - a 2 win FCS school. They also lost to SBU while we remain unranked (or ranked 26th depending on how you see it). UNH has yet to beat a team with greater than 2 wins thus far this season.
The boys have to just keep on rolling.  Cannot afford to wind up with same record as UNH or Nova at end of year - both are darlings of the FCS polls and when it comes to FCS playoff seeding. JMU, Richmond and Elon already appear headed for playoffs.  Can't count on CAA getting 6 spots.  And Delaware also is coming on strong.

No way did they have 12,000 at that game. I dont think they had 8,000. Seats empty all over. And to respond to an earlier post, someone needs to tell the DJ in the booth to stop playing music when SB is on offense.

I've always question the attendance at the homecoming games in the past. But for the sake SB football, I'll go with what they say. SH has big expectations for this program..

Clearly, SBU is off everybody radar in the CAA and in the FCS poling.... All they can do now is just keeping winning. 7 wins wont get them the playoffs, that's for certain..

Everybody knows the coaches (or whoever the hell actually votes in these things) don't actually watch the games. I think once the committee sits down to decide the seeding for the playoffs and whatnot, we'll get a more fair shake. The Massey composite has us at 17 and New Hampshire down at 45 lmao. The computers look at us much more favorably and those will likely be taken into consideration come playoff time. I wouldn't freak out yet.

7 wins may not get us in, but perhaps we wouldn't deserve to be in with 7 wins. We avoid JMU, Elon, and Villanova this year, so winning the Richmond game becomes more crucial than it otherwise probably would be. Montana is an FCS blue blood and who knows how many the MVFC will get into the playoff. I've always said though that 8 wins will get us a spot and 7 will keep us in the conversation for one. The Richmond game may decide our season. Win it, and there's no reason we can't win out, finish 9-2, and potentially get a bye. Lose it, and who knows. We should at least finish with a winning record since Wagner is still on the schedule.

The conference rebalanced   the teams placing us with Delaware , Towson and Villanova .  We have the CAA North with UNH , Albany, Maine and URI and the CAA  South with W&M. Elon , Richmond and JMU . We will continue to play Albany  as our rival team each season as  we do now.   We are the CAA I guess  Mid Atlantic Division .

The CAA wanted to bracket teams by where they are for travel consideration the remainder of who they play will be done randomly. I also think that Albany will remain on our schedule

This was put out prior to the 2017 season by the CAA

Ah, I see. Didn't think that would matter all that much given we're talking football and the CAA is quite compact geographically in the grand scheme of things. Our team really doesn't need to fly to games all that often anyhow. Compare our footprint to something like CUSA which has to fly all their teams (not just football) all over the place on a weekly basis and we really don't have it bad at all.
