Canít argue with this on laxpower:

Although the Team got better after an embarrassing start (14 - 2 loss to Hofstra) another very disappointing year for SBU. It's been 6 years since SBU Made the NCAAs. Hard to believe with the crazy amount of Local Talent that this team is so bad. It's even more apparent considering what Spallina has done on the girls side. I've talk to many of his players and they just don't like playing for Nagle. I think it's time for a change. The Facilities and Value (1/2 the price of most schools) at SBU are awesome. Get the right coach and there is no question that they can do what Albany and the woman's team have done.

I totally agree. This is how I always felt about coach P  in football. Get the right coach and SB could be another James Madison.

With one more season left on coach P contract, and no extension was offered, its a do or die season for him. This team will either surprise us to the upside or be a bust. But I'll save the ranting for the football thread, not lax..

The laxpower post is on the money. Nagle has zero recruiting power on Long Island. LI kids know you do not get treated very well as a player on a Stonybrook squad with Nagle at the helm.  Being so close to the huge LI  talent pool works against Nagle. The kids know the environment he and Gibson have created. Most top level LI players do not even consider Stony brook. They all have heard the nightmare stories.

No other D1 program had 2 full days of running before the final game of the season. He just doesn't know what else to do or how to develop his talent on any level. He is so old school and as someone else said, the game has past him bye. He loses more recruiting ability each year. After the experience the upstate kids have had over the last few years, that talent pool has completely dried up as well.

He has talented Canadians who all seem to receive full or near full scholarships to attend. This is just not the way to sustain a talented team at the D1 level.

It is a shame because this team (other than at the X) has talent and can compete. They can be developed into
an excellent team. It will never happen with Nagle as the coach. He has proven time and time again he can't get the job done and he needs to go. This team needs a younger more progressive thinking coach that these talented young men want to play for. It would make all the difference in the world for these guys. They deserve better.

WOW!!! Well said. Maybe what SB Lax needs is a local coach who has strong ties to the Long Island recruiting pool, like Joe Spallina has.. A Div2 pr Div3 school from the area where a HC wants to make a name for himself..

I think Shawn will make the right move. It's time for a change in the coaching staff.

Nagle in principle was a good hire- local guy with DI credentials. However he just hasn't been able to take this program to where it needs to go. How much longer can they wait for him? There is some good young talent on this team and I want to see them develop with a new coaching staff.

Stony Brook should be a top 15 program nationally every year.

Disappointing end to the season but a lot to look forward to in the following years, we return nearly the whole team. Offensively, this could be one of the most talented groups we have had in years with most of our guys entering their junior seasons. On Attack, Haun is the quarterback of the offense he will take charge. Pair him with Walsh who is one of the best feeders in our conference and Kaschalk a great finisher and hustler and that is a super strong attack group. Midfield we have a ton of depth. Pickle is becoming an elite shooter and off ball player. White and Grippe are probably the two best dodging threats we have as no short stick is keeping up with them. VinGinhaven and Mccannell will have strong roles as well. On Defense we have Rees and Pugal to anchor down low with Bollinger in net. I like what I saw from Cassidy early this past year and we have O'Leary? as well. Faceoffs will be our biggest question mark this year we need to improve in that area. This team could easily win the America East next year but I am not sure it could be done with our current coaching staff. We will see though. Go Seawolves.
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Chairman of the Board on May 14, 2018, 04:24:33 pm
agreed.  we do better when we hold teams under 10.  we can help our defense by getting the ball more.  so figuring out the faceoff piece will go a long way- and i note, even just getting competitive (~45% or so) will be a marked improvement. 

hard to compete with UA; hardER when we don't have the ball.  ierlan's got two more seasons.

i also note we currently have 18 commitments, but no defensemen.  but we've got enough bodies: rees, pugal, cassidy, o'leary, trenkle, alejo, mcdonaugh, shephard, anderson, morris, junge.  some of which are playing LSM.

True, but if enough fans voice their concerns about the direction the program is going, in a negative way, the AD will be more incline to make a move.

Let's hope but itís unlikely. Nagel has a proven track record of 1 and done in the AE tournament. I'm sure Albany's backup FOGO is better than our non FOGO, and we don't have any defenders in the class of Nanticoke. Worst of all Nagel is still there. Expect more nothing. I'm sure we'll see our share of good players transferring from SB Nagel lax, it happens every year.

#37 Stony Brook Seawolves

Personnel Losses
Key seniors departing: D Kyle Abdellatif (30 GBs, 9 CTs, 2 Gs, 1 A), LSM Tyler Anderson (34 GBs, 4 CTs, 2 Gs, 33.3% faceoff draws), SSDM Matt Robison (20 GBs, 5 CTs, 2 Gs, 1 A), G Brandon Maciejewski (8.70 GAA, 52.9% SV %), FOGO Matt Philbin (51.7% faceoff draws)
Senior scoring departing: 8 of 217 points (3.7%)
Senior starts lost: 22 of 150 (14.7%)

The Seawolves had plenty of guys take faceoffs, with seven players taking at least 10 draws.

Looking Ahead
Stony Brook doesnít lose a ton of scoring or starters. Abdellatif is the only main loss in regards to starters, but Anderson and Robison are also important on the ďropeĒ unit. The offense returns all nine of their 10 or more point scorers. If you include Rees and his eight points, thatís their entire top 10.

The big question has to be what the Seawolves do at the faceoff position. Having seven guys take more than 10 draws, five of them at least 30 draws, doesnít do a lot. Senior Matt Philbin was the only player to have a win percentage of at least 50%, but he graduates. Sophomore Tristan Dowd and freshmen John Ehlers and Nolan Enneguess need to find a way to stand out from one another in the fall to pull away and become the top FOGO for Stony Brook.

Nagel is playing to his teamís level. The days of SB being a top 20 team are gone. The days of Rooney, Roger, Corpolongo, Reh, and Randall are gone. SB getting a beat down from Notre Dame or Syracuse is only going to help ND or Cuse recruit top LI talent.  Nagel has a long track record of mediocrity and downfall. We are in the downfall cycle.  Letís hope they donít renew his contract.

Laxbromid, not sure your axe to grind with Coach Nagle but last year's team beat the #16 team and took #9 Virginia to a 1 goal loss. If the Virginia game was two more minutes I believe they would have won. That said,  the team that is returning is a top twenty team. I will make that prediction now. They will make the polls during the season and I will bet they will be picked to win the AE. You seem to be a little too worked up over fall ball. Syracuse is playing Binghamton this week.

It would be great if this blog could be about the team, incoming talent, schedule etc. It seems to be dominated by 3 or 4 guys who clearly do not like Nagle and take their jabs. Maybe we can set up a separate string where Nagle bashing can occur and this link could be used for semi-intelligent lacrosse conversation about this team. Nagle did not take my milk money in grade school and I guess I can afford a therapist to help with my anger issues. Go Wolves

Beating a #16 team and a loss to another team at home are not exactly good arguments to support a coachís success. Nagleís teams at SB have a history of mediocrity, especially in light of being in a lacrosse hotbed (as Spallina or even Hofstra U has demonstrated) and what the university has to offer players and staff. Laxbromid doesnít need a therapist for calling it like it is. If the best we can aim for at SBU after all these years is a top 20 team (out of just 70 teams), itís time for new leadership.
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: smittylaxbro on September 29, 2018, 12:25:04 pm
That other team at Home was Virginia who beat SB by only 1. The same 1 goal that the 2010 and 2011 glory teams lost to Virginia by. Just saying this team and it's talent does not seem to far away to me.

I would argue that SB is much better than Hofstra, while we did get smoked in the loss at home to Hofstra which was a low point for last year's team. SB rebounded and did beat two teams that Hofstra lost to. They were also regular season conference champs with Albany, not too many of SB teams have actually done that.

While a different coach might be better for this team IMHO this team will do well this year

PS. Football team is looking good and the stadium looks incredible

it's big news, right?

two star players leave at the same time.  and i heard a third too (the backup fogo).  and the incoming fogo decommitted.

with that said- this is the new normal.  kids dont stick to commitments as much as we did.

in other news- i think that's like 9 starters gone for UA:
fields, j reh, nanticoke
t reh, mcclancy, ierlan
kluck, sims
colarusso

doesnt really matter though; they'll give us a good fight in any event.

Fall tournament this weekend, looking forward to seeing the games. Stony Brook should be the preseason #1 to win the conference and get back to the NCAA.  I looked at stats from last year on Inside Lacrosse and reviewed all returning players.
Of all returning players, Stony Brook returns:
4 of the top 15 in total points in AE including #2 and #6 in Haun and Walsh
4 of the top 15 in goals in AE including #5 and #6 in Haun and Pickel
3 of the top 15 in assists in AE including #1 and #6 in Walsh and Haun

No defensive stats posted except for Goalie, expecting another big year from Bollinger.

Go Seawolves!!!

Faceoffs much improved, more impressive overall was that the entire team were ground ball hawks. Did not keep a tally but it just felt like every ground ball was coming up SB.

Should be picked to win the conference and get an NCAA bid . Go Wolves

Inside Lacrosse Preseason Selection has SB at #37 and #3 in America East behind Albany #15 and Vermont #24. Disappointed in preseason respect given by IL but I see a great opportunity to fly under national radar. They clearly do not know this team.  SB finished 6-3 after a slow start and recently controlling Providence #31 in fall scrimmage. I know Fall means nothing but team went 3-0 in Fall.

Congrats to Haun, Pugal and Rees who made AE First Team Preseason. Well deserved

Schedule is posted, Marist and Bryant replace Virginia and Fairfield

I have the team going 10 and 4 with regular season losses to Princeton, Albany, Brown and Hofstra. Big out of conference wins against Penn State #10 and Bryant .Team goes 5 and 1 in conference and beats Albany in AE Final and gets a birth to the dance. They will be 12-4 going into NCAA ranked 18th playing at Cornell or Syracuse. I will wait to give my prediction on that game.

Theory is you cannot win every game you play and hard to beat the same team twice in a year. I would rather get Albany in the AE playoffs.

Expecting a big year from this coaching staff and team. Going to be a fun year in Lavalle Stadium

What has Nagle shown you in the past that he can get a team, any team to 10-4?   He's a below average coach (you are what your record says your are) who based on the past will not adapt to the new rules.   

I hope your right though, and good luck to the boys but I see another record hovering around .500

Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: laxfan42 on December 08, 2018, 09:39:54 am
I am bullish on this current team. Joe Willie, I cannot speak for Nagle's overall record but I believe that he and his staff have assembled the parts for a great season and here is why. Some key take away's from last year.
1) Team was very young with predominantly underclassmen starters
2) After mixing a few lineups early settled in on a lineup and finished 7 and 4
3) Young team lost leads in 4th quarter and came back to win against Vermont, UML, and Hartford. That builds character and resolve
4) If Virginia game was 3 minutes longer?? Team put 6 straight on the board in the 4th quarter against #9 team in country. Tell me what other teams in D1 did that last year against a top 10 team. Again, character building
5) Penn State was a 2 goal game in the 4th quarter
6) Albany was a 2 goal game late in 3rd quarter when we missed a face break conversion that would have completely quited that crowd before the wheels fell off. We had 4,000 fans almost silent and stunned. PS we did not win a faceoff in that game, We were about 0 for 17 at that point. Meaning SB was winning the 6 on 6 battle
7) Vermont playoff game was a 1 goal game to start the 4th.
8) Reason I am mentioning losses because I think this team will learn from them.
9) If last year's team was 10% better on faceoffs and 50/50 groundballs alone, they would have had 10 wins. I believe they will be at least 10% better on these two items this year.
10) There are no gimmies in D1 lacrosse. I think the good and bad from last year and that the majority of the team returns puts them in a great position to take a big step forward
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season

Previewing Stony Brookís 2019 menís college lacrosse schedule
The Seawolves could surprise many people in 2019.

2/23 (at Brown): The past three years, both teams have combined for at least 29 goals so expect the over/under to be a large number. The Seawolves lost last yearís battle in a 30-goal affair thanks to five goals from Carson Song after beating the Bears 25-17 in 2017.
2/26 (at Hofstra): Last yearís meeting of the two Long Island teams was one Stony Brook would like to forget. After the Seawolves made it a 6-2 game in the 3rd quarter, the Pride scored the final eight goals en route to a huge 14-2 win.
3/9 (vs. Bryant): Iím interested in this matchup for the Seawolves as well as the Bulldogs. Bryant has been a consistently good NEC team for the past few years, while the Seawolves have had some good teams throughout as well. Bryant is known for their defense but theyíre able to score some goals as well.
3/23 (vs. UMBC): UMBC is capable of being a team in the America East Tournament with one of the more stingier defenses in the country. But the Retrievers have to score some goals as well. Stony Brook won last yearís meeting by a goal despite a three-goal run by UMBC early in the fourth quarter.
4/20 (at Vermont): These two teams finished 2-3 in the America East, with the Seawolves earning the second seed after a double overtime victory over the Catamounts in the regular season with both goalies recording 16 saves. But Vermont came out on top in the rematch in the conference semifinals, thanks to the Catamounts scoring five of the six second half goals.

Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Redwyn on February 16, 2019, 01:47:30 pm
Nagle needs to be done here. He has demonstrated clear ineptitude against top competition for years. As a program that has had EXCELLENT coaching in the past, we should be ashamed to permit this guy to take our team to the slaughter year after year.

I remember when Big Ten teams like Penn State and Rutgers were fodder for us. Now we struggle to score ONE GOAL.

This is our home turf, and lacrosse is THE Long Island sport. Be done with this and find someone like Spallina to take this team back to where it should be.
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season

Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: joewillie on February 16, 2019, 02:59:24 pm
As I have been saying for years Nagle has to go.  Watched the first 3 quarters today.  Team wasnít prepared for PSU.  They were feeding the crease with ease or shooting lazers from the wing.  The slides werenít late they werenít even happening.  The O was embarrassing.  Not sure Nagle understand there is a shot clock this year.  They were down 15-0 and werenít attacking and actually got a shot clock violation.  The guy called timeout when Penn State was getting ball behind the cage.  Of course he didnít even bother talk to the boys.  Let the assistants do that so he can get a so not deserved drink of water.  Even an injured Ryland Rees was coaching up the D.  The guy is an awful coach.  The game passed him by years ago.   Change is long overdue.  Itís going to be a long season.  Onward and Upward

Post by: laxfan42 on February 17, 2019, 10:43:32 am
Taken to the woodshed for sure. Bad day all around, Penn State offense is a buzz saw. Tough draw to start the season after they have played 2 games.  Anyone who has ever played in one of these know's it's hard to stop. You make bad decisions and try to make things happen. Saw this on offense, clearing the ball, forces in transition and even the coaches. Clearly they thought the zone would work better. O'Keefe had the game of his life. Good part it's only 1 non conference game that does not effect us winning the America East. Watched Albany game last night, We can beat them. From here I see Penn State having a season, probably jump to #2, We will not be the only victim. They pasted Villanova and Robert Morris as well (two tournament teams from last year)' Nova who then went on to beat #1 Yale.  SB team had great chemistry 2nd half of last year and I am expecting them to rally, you have to forget this one and take care of Brown. Game like this is a wake up call for everyone to do better, coaches and players.  I would not panic with this team, learn the lessons of the ass beating and move on.
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: joewillie on February 17, 2019, 09:19:58 pm
What about the O?  It was 15-0 late in the 3rd qtr.  They scored one goal vs their starters.  Have no attackman that can get top side.  Shot clock ran out multiple times.  Only one goal was assisted for an O that preaches patiences.   Starting defenseman taking 3 terrible shots.  No real open looks vs the starters. 

What was Nagleís plan for the O.  I would love to know.  Seemed to be pass it around to the shot clock runs out.   
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Sblax808 on February 19, 2019, 11:29:27 am
Year 8 of the Nagle experience and the season starts with an embarrassing loss to Penn State. We see one program reaching new heights and competing at an elite level, while another one struggles to compete for an AE championship year in and year out..  I committed to play at Stony Brook ~10 years ago because it was a top 5 ranked program who beat Albany 15-0 and on the verge of a Final Four appearance.  Stony Brook has lost 10 straight games against Albany under Nagle and hasn't seen the NCAA tournament since 2012 (with Sowell's recruits). Spallina and the SB Women's Lax program have won 6 straight AE Championships.

If you watched the game on Saturday, Penn State had play makers all over the field, from their goalie to their face-off specialist to their offense who broke down the zone with ease, scoring 15 goals through 3 quarters.  Can you say the same about Stony Brook based on what we saw last year and game 1 this year? Stony Brook has ELITE athletic facilities/resources and Spallina has proved that kids want to come play there.  Lastly, yes it is only one game, but this is a reoccurring theme year in and year out, so patience is lost now.

Taken to the woodshed for sure. Bad day all around, Penn State offense is a buzz saw. Tough draw to start the season after they have played 2 games.  Anyone who has ever played in one of these know's it's hard to stop. You make bad decisions and try to make things happen. Saw this on offense, clearing the ball, forces in transition and even the coaches. Clearly they thought the zone would work better. O'Keefe had the game of his life. Good part it's only 1 non conference game that does not effect us winning the America East. Watched Albany game last night, We can beat them. From here I see Penn State having a season, probably jump to #2, We will not be the only victim. They pasted Villanova and Robert Morris as well (two tournament teams from last year)' Nova who then went on to beat #1 Yale.  SB team had great chemistry 2nd half of last year and I am expecting them to rally, you have to forget this one and take care of Brown. Game like this is a wake up call for everyone to do better, coaches and players.  I would not panic with this team, learn the lessons of the ass beating and move on.

I understand what everyone saying, but I'm taking Laxfan42's approach. I still think this team figures it out and competes for the AE championship.

Post by: Chairman of the Board on February 23, 2019, 04:57:49 pm
awful officiating that mostly benefited SB.  brown games are always high scoring affairs but i dont like how they call the GLE inside roll- all you need to do is fall into the crease and they flag the defense.  refs seemed overwhelmed today. 

the bad- first few minutes and last few minutes were awful (but we looked good in the middle).  shot clock violations.  clearing.  a few boneheaded penalties.  check out Cook in the 4th stanza: https://stonybrookathletics.com/boxscore.aspx?path=mlax&id=8685

the good- we're tough to scout because we dont have one go-to on offense and run like 12 players there.  defense- bollinger, harry, cassidy, trenkle, o'leary, pugal.  morrell looks fast in transition.  harrell showing an outside shot.  we showed some range today with cvg, grippe, and pickel also shooting outside.  taking advantage of flags.

more importantly- i thought eneguess looked good on faceoffs, and pedone (who i dont think is a specialist) gives us an option.  with pedone it looks like sheer will and athleticism. 

big day from cassidy.  1 assist, 5 GBs, and 3 CTs.

ua wins, vt too.

PS do we think the SB twitter folks know the difference between an assist and an assistant? https://twitter.com/StonyBrookMLAX?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

Solid road win, some questionable calls late helped Brown make it close, Brown preseason #28. Took awhile to shake off Penn State dust but when they did team looked good.  Eliminate some unforced turnovers and improve clearing and this team can do something.  Defense played very tough and was missing their best player.  Shut off Tierney (10 goals) on Tuesday and make someone else beat you, no one else at Hofstra scares me.

Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Chairman of the Board on February 26, 2019, 09:32:58 pm
ah cmon now, check your messages!

this was one of the sloppiest games ive ever seen- both teams.  hard to watch.  there were more than 3 scrums where over 10 players fiddled around for a GB and no one came up with it. 

couldve gone either way- the GWG was a rebound right into haun's stick; shot high while goalie was still on the ground.

the bad: stopak has one move and it worked 4 times in the second half.  some late slides or non-slides.  missed an open cage in a tight game.  at this level, we should never get trail checked.  i like that we are physical but some of our body/stick checks are obvious penalties.  sometimes it's as if we dont know there is a shot clock.  throwing the ball away.  missing the cage (19/33 SOG).  14 first half turnovers.

the good: gutsy road win at archrival.  we kept tierney in check.  improved faceoffs.  penalties minimal.  9 CTs (that's unusual).  2-0 road record.  Hof was getting votes in both top 20 polls.  avenge 14-2 drubbing last year.  we ran man defense and id say it worked, until stopak inside-rolled.  two-way mids create transition threat.

difficult to say who gets the game ball here.  bollinger made at least 3 kick saves (plus one buzzer).  enneguess won big draws late (6GB).  haun scored a bunch including the go-ahead.  pugal made plays all over the field.  matsuoka and dugan and morrell form a nice trio of speedy two-way mids.  haun and cassidy 7 GB each (abnormal for even FOGOs).

but i'd give it to dugan (two transition goals and good defense) and daly.  daly doesnt speed by his man, but uses his size to back in and draw doubles.  on two doubles, he moved the ball, another pass, and we scored.  so he doesnt show up in the box, but in a 1 goal game, he gets my game ball.

turnovers, brutal to watch and listen. The boys showed a lot of guts last night. Looking at the schedule all the way to

one more comment about how well dugan played- it's subtle but when he's in the crease and approaches x to pick up the invert, he takes the perfect angle & tempo so that he doesnt get hung up, top-sided, nor inside-rolled.  some guys come out uncontrolled and get run by, leaving a 1v0.

a game of inches prevents an open shot (is he a trig major?).  that's good lax IQ.  (and that was the 4th Q)

Both goalies made some nice saves in the first half.  Otherwise, the overall performance of both teams leaves a lot to be desired.  Hope SB can turn things around in the second half.

I would assume he is thinking Nagle is in the final year of a state school contract and he will fire him minutes after the last game.   I wouldnít be surprised if he had a short list of candidates lined up.   Nagle has done nothing over his time to prove he should be a D1 coach.  Time for a change.

Another very challenging game to watch. If the intensity was there, I didn't see it. Flat-footed offense getting denied or stripped over and over with weak 1v1 dodge attempts. Slow ball movement, and no outside shots being taken. The kids did not seem motivated at all. Marist wanted the win bad.

Frost is right, no intensity on Saturday. Marist had it, we did not. Disappointing after great win on Tuesday. Team needs to rally and muster some energy, sense of urgency and get some W's. Started last year 1 and 5, if we can rebound and beat Sacred Heart and Bryant and go to Hartford game 4 and 2 this Marist loss will not look as bad as it does right now.  Need to show up with a chip like we did on the road against Brown and Hofstra. Sacred Heart and Bryant will roll us if we bring the Marist game back.  Go Wolves lets get it done

Not sure what's going on with the internal culture, but Gibson was screaming at the O-line during the last 2 minutes of regulation talking about going out and partying and seeing the results. All teams have their days when they look flat; in fact I recall the '16 team who looked unstoppable at times losing to Marist on our home field. I specifically recall one of the less-tethered Marist parents screaming in Corpolongo's Dad's face during the game. Sitting close to the sidelines on Saturday, I didn't see a team trying to pick each other up and win a game. I saw guys coming in off the field (Matsuoka, Rees to be specific) and trying to rally the others, but most came off making excuses. Poor fundamentals aside with basic throwing / catching, groundballs, not throwing outlet passes into a scrum; we got CRUSHED on face-offs. I tip my cap to the guys on this forum trying to remain positive, but this is hands-down the worst team put on the field by SBU since I've been watching. It's a shame, because there's a lot of individual talent, just no cohesiveness as a unit.

I assume you mean Nagle...but yes. This is an elite lacrosse job- he's got to get this team turned around ASAP. He's been here for several years and I have yet to see him have significant success with a non- Sowell recruited team.

we got stripped a lot in this game.  i wonder if it's the wet conditions, maybe the shot clock, maybe our skills.  maybe a combination.  either way with a veteran offense i wasnt expecting such.

the season is long.  after PSU we thought the worst.  then we rattled off two nice wins.  so that could happen again in the coming weeks. (or, we can beat albany and make it right)

one thing i will add- despite winning against hof and brown, i thought we looked mostly terrible, as if we hadnt practiced or something like that.

I understand that Nagleís been on 1 year contract for several years now. I think AD and the President want to save money it would cost for real head coach and real OC because they want to spend the money on football. You all remember Heilbrons big plan for the athletic department? Itís all based on football because they can make money with that sport. I donít think they care if this team burns to the ground. Because any idiot can see Nagle has to go. Heís never going to win conference on consistent basis. And biggest issue is that all high school players and coaches on Long Island have no respect for him. Any high school player with a choice will go somewhere else. Nagleís known as the ďtrack coachĒ because all he knows how to do is make the kids run. The joke is that they run more than track teams. So unless he wins national championship or is in championship weekend several years in a row heís never going to get solid recruiting classes. So not matter how much we hope this team will work together and win some games nothing will change in any real way. Not unless AD and President make some room in budget for this team.

Couldn't agree more that he has to go...he's a terrible coach, especially at the D1 level.  He's not on a one year contract though.  He's in the final year of a multi year state school contract and the end of this season will be the end for him.  Should have been after last season but as a state schools SB can't eat the final year of his contract.  Time for a change.  The kids and school deserve it.

This is ugly lacrosse. We look like a bottom third team. Nagel has to go. Nagelís only success came with the remnants of Coach Sowellís team. His best team was 2016, nationally ranked at times, but one-&-done in AE tourney. That team had Rogers, Eastwood, Corpolongo, Randall, and Reh, all MLL drafts. No top recruits are coming to play for SB and Nagel. No LI high school coach is going to endorse SB and Nagel. Nagelís Canada pipe line is even drying up. Anything bad youíve heard about Nagel is true. Coach Sowell & Spalina built final 4 programs at Stonybrook. Nagel has shown he canít get it done. If SB had to keep Nagel for financial and contractual reasons OK. If his contract is up, heís got to go. Anything will be an improvement.

The team is going to rally and win the conference.

I don't actually think that, but I wouldn't be surprised. I was VERY out on Nagle last year last year after they got embarrassed at home, but then they went on to have a decent season. I expect them to do more of the same this year. Nagle teams have a tendency to lose games they should and win games they should lose. How many wins does Nagle have over top 20 teams and how many wins over top 20 teams does stony Brook have in it's D1 history? I'd bet Nagle has a bunch of them.

Nagle has mostly had the unfortunate luck of coaching against this unbelievable run of Albany teams, which has made it both very hard to win an AE title and probably warped our expectations.

Coach Sowell got to the final 4. Coach Spallina has built a top program. 2016 we lost in the first round of the AE tourney, didn't even get to Albany. We are looking at a bottom third team.

This is what I'm talking about. Stony Brook has never been to the final four. Sowell got to the quarterfinals. He failed to make the playoffs the following year when Crowley, McBride, Rand and co. were all seniors - they lost to Hartford in the championship game. Albany oddly sucked for most of Sowell's time at Stony Brook. Chairman, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Stony Brook only has three conference titles since going D1 and Nagle won one of them.

What's crazy is I'm not even a Nagle fan. We'll see how the rest of season plays out, but there's a good possibility Heilbron will have to make a tough decision in June. But it should be a tough decision. Nagle's had some success at Stony Brook.

I just saw that the second leading points getter on the top ranked Towson squad is a Stony Brook transfer. I understand that transfers happen all the time, but itís still frustrating to see.

He was a Canadian commit, never saw the field. As I said, Nagel's Canadian pipeline is running dry. That and Nagel's bad rep on LI, how we getting back to a top 20 team?

Thank You SBUFAN. I couldn't agree with you more. The hate for Nagle on this forum is mind boggling.
By the standards that are being set on this forum about our location in the middle of the hotbed of lacrosse, Stony Brook,Hofstra and
I will throw in St. Johns, should have multiple national titles. Our best players on the island find their way to the likes of the ACC, Ivy League,
Big 10, Big East etc. etc. My son played 4 years at Stony Brook and his biggest complaint believe it or not was not Nagle. It was the
campus lifestyle and many of his teamates and recruits felt the same way. Oh well, just my 2 cents put in.
Go Seawolves!!!

The on-campus culture is a problem.  Letís face it...we are talking  about the lack of any college party scene on or near the campus.  There  is no significant bar scene immediately off campus. There are no frat or sorority houses allowed on campus. Stony  Brook is a ďdryĒ campus. Furthermore, the university runs adjacent to fairly wealthy communities that largely  will NOT embrace a college town atmosphere. I donít know how the university can fix this but it is definitely hurting us from a recruiting standpoint.

How is it that the players Spallina brings in dont complain about campus life, they just win. Pt jeff is 5 miles or less down the road.We made the best out of campus life in the early 90's. Is there great campus life at Albany or do kids go there cause they win. If you have a winning program you will attract kids. Campus life is a bad argument for a mediocre program.If you really want to party you can do that anywhere. Frats and sorority's do not make campus life any better. Many schools are have a dry campus. Great education and a winning program should be enough to attract recruits. Thats what Spallina is selling.

watched the replay.  the bad first-

mental errors- i cant believe sometimes our upperclassmen get trailchecked at this level.  sometimes we dont back shots up.  also, it's one thing if our poles try to play a little transition, but it should end there- the poor shot selection and the dodging is ill-advised, i think.  we looked stagnant against the zone.  also is it me or do we like to squander 4th quarter leads?

the good- bollinger.  dugan again plays like a champion.  pearson shows promise.  bollinger.  harrell's outside shot stretches the defense.  clearing improved and less shot clock violations.  slide & recovery timed well.  bollinger. 

maryland BC loses (do they play defense?), ualbaNy loses, hart loses, UVm loses.  bingo is down hosting delaware.  UML wins.

Sat behind the bench today and heard Nagle and Gibson being positive all game. Nagle kept saying make the next play, plenty of plays left to make and Gibson was clapping and supporting his offense. I liked what they were feeding. Chairman, I have to take exception. Winning goal was just not luck. Smart timeout, they ran the clock down so Bryant did not have any time to work with, ran a play, got a clean look on the doorstep that resulted in a rebound and great finish for the winner. I saw great execution.

This team has enough play makers to beat Albany

agreed.

smitty- i saw uaLbany play #2 maryland today.  they were in the game and missing their star player.  they win faceoffs and run fast breaks and shoot the lights out of the ball.  we struggle with unranked teams so ill be more bullish if we beat teams like SHU and marist.

No points for losing to Maryland by 5. I would argue that Albany is better without Tehoka in the lineup. Great talent with massive skill and size, Does not make lacrosse plays that make those around him better. SB can only hope he plays when we face them in AE finals. I agree that Sacred Heart and Marist were bad losses but historically SB has struggled against those teams. Sacred Heart should have been a win but we did not close. Focusing on the good, there have not been too many years that we beat Brown and Hofstra in the same year. Real season starts this week at Hartford, Albany plays UML

just to add to 808's sentiment- we're about 1/3 through the season, and the bottom 4 teams in the AE have two combined wins.

yes, usually the AE plays a harder SoS in non-conference play.  but still. 

the door might be open to win, so long as we can get through uaLbanY, which we havent come close to since 2012.

Sowell was 47-26 during his 5 seasons at Stony Brook.  This is why people on this forum have the right to have high expectations because this program deserves better and has had better.

The men's bball team was 24-8 this year so I don't care to hear the excuses about lack of campus life and how it is hard to recruit when other teams (and men's lacrosse historically) are successful at SB.

For me it's all about energy. Team has to come out and dominate ground balls and hustle plays.  I saw the 3 losses, Penn State is on a different level, started on a 10-2 run against Cornell as well. We should have beaten a good Sacred Heart team, needed a defensive stop at the end.  The Marist game is my worry, we came out very flat after beating Hofstra. Cannot let that happen against Hartford. If we have championship aspirations it starts tomorrow, come out at the first whistle and be the better team for 60 minutes, nothing wrong with dominating an opponent, put your foot on their jugular and out work them. Playoff season essentially start tomorrow, very exciting stuff. I am expecting big things from this team, the lessons learned from last year and 1st half of this year.  America East Champions or bust, Good luck boys

Itís nice some of you are optimistic. But did todayís game at Hartford show you why the rest of us keep saying Nagle needs to be fired immediately?  Hartford was 0-6 and lost to Manhattan by 3. MANHATTAN!  And Manhattan only gave up 8 goals!

Nagle runs the defense. They donít watch film of the opponents offense and they donít have the scout offense run the opponents offense during practice. They were not prepared today for Hartfordís rotations! Nagle is an awful coach. He makes the dumbest decisions. He canít evaluate talent. He decides certain players should play and then he plays them no matter how many mistakes they make in games. The defense has a lot of talent.  But not enough players who have good instincts and lax IQ are on the field together. And no one communicates. And Nagle is incapable of making adjustments during the game.

The offense rotates a lot of players to find the best matchups and whoís got the hot hand. The defense makes no changes. Just keeps doing the same thing over and over and over. Nagle is the definition insanity.

And donít say the AE is all down this year. Albany lost to Maryland, Syracuse, Cornell and UMass. All highly ranked teams. They didnít lose to Marist, Sacred Heart and Hartford! And the Hofstra and Bryant wins were lucky bounces at the end against bad teams.

This programs should be better and deserves better. Itís not hard to do. Look at the womenís team. So much talent here on Long Island. Great education for state school tuition.   Close to home so family and friends can come to games. Will never happen while Nagle here because his reputation is for ****. And he has totally earned it.

We need a change. That is if the AD and President will spend the money on something other than football.

Every week the defense makes offense for the opposition by doing the wrong slides at the wrong time. You hear it being talked about by multiple people who all hear it from directly inside the team. Itís not just seeing it on the tape. The team knows it. They talk to each about it all the time. Nagle is just either too incompetent or arrogant (or both!) to admit heís not doing it right on defense and needs to make changes.

And players are afraid to talk to him about it because when you do he talks about you in front of the whole team and says youíre just being selfish and worrying about your own playing time and donít care about the team when that is totally not true. Heís an awful communicator and teacher with his players. Exactly the opposite of what you need for a college coach. All you need to look at are his results.

Team has had a very up and down start to the season, something that has been the norm past few seasons. From what I have gathered from watching every game, this team has a lot of talent on the field but for some reason is struggling to have that talent translate into W's. I will not bash the coaching staff like almost everyone else has or will, but rather offer what I have seen from this years squad up to this point. Faceoffs are non existent for this team like they have been for quite some time (I don't know exact number but probably 35-40% on season, not good). Goaltending has been phenomenal, Bollinger keeps this team in almost every game this kid is legit. He covers up so many mistakes made by this veteran defense. Our slide rotations and matchups seem to make no sense. Example: not putting the pole on #1 on Hartford. Rees and Pugal play well individually but the team defense is not there right now. I do think Dugan is one of the most underrated and most important guys on the team at the SSDM spot. Offensively there are some bright spots and some not to bright spots. This unit lacks the "smoothness factor" it feels like it's a struggle a lot to just cycle the ball around. Haun needs to be given more opportunities to dodge his man rather than give him the ball with 15 sec left in shot clock and pray he draws a push or scores. Gripe and VanGinhoven are such a dynamic 1-2 punch dodging from the midfield and I think the offense needs to be initiated by them (see last possesion of Hartford game, Gripe takes the ball). There are some good shooters like Pickle as well but the rest of the offense needs to step their games up. Anyway, I think this team bounces back in a big way this weekend vs UMBC and I will not be surprised when they hold up the AE trophy come May. Go Seawolves!

watched the replay.  the good: we played sound defense (5-0 at half!), and didnt ask bollinger to stand on his head for once, though he still played great.  i saw that fiorentino got on.  going up 7-0 on your rival is good.  faceoffs.  we might need to find more minutes for harrell (headed for the all rookie team?). 

the bad: on our clear, we too often just try to run through two defenders (i think counted 5x?).  we still got trail checked i think 4 times.  my opinion but we are better having long poles pass instead of shoot. 

otherwise BC just couldnt hit the cage or get into a rhythm; they just threw the ball away a lot.  i noticed the red pads were taken off the far walls at lavalle.  ualBany beats bingo, vermont blew up hartford, SJU beats UML.

Watched it live.

Great team effort all around by the players. Much more urgency and effort.

Great to win faceoffs. So many extra possessions.

Offense in much better rhythm. A lot of guys contributing. You canít just try to stop one guy.

But donít understand what you saw on defense. They were all or nothing. Either they we all in perfect unison sliding and recovering at right time in right rotations all together. Or they were totally off and running around totally a mess. Donít understand why. Theyíve been playing together for over a year now.

And SB goalie did stand on his head. He made 6-8 ridiculous saves. He stole those goals from UMBC. Wide open shots right on top of him. You could see that very clearly live.

UMBC is very bad team. If their offense had any real finishers, sorry to say that game could easily have been a loss. 

Your defensive plan canít depend on your goalie standing on his head every week. Thatís not a realistic game plan.

But very glad for players that they worked hard and supported each other so loudly to get the win. They clearly care and work hard as a team. Really good chemistry with each other all around. So great to see and hear that.

But the head coach still has no clue.

Watched it live too. Much better all around, liked the tempo on offense much better, ball moved quick through attack and middies made decisions much faster, liked #50 at middie.  You have to like the defense and goalie when they hold a collegiate team to zero for a half. Bollinger and D looked good.
Do not agree Chairman that UMBC is a bad team, I bet you they make the playoffs, I would rather not see them again. Nolan and goalie are very good and there attack is not so shabby, give Bollinger credit. Kasner is a transfer from Dematha, my friend coached him during travel days. He is #5 in country in caused turnovers and had 4 against Vermont. All these teams have players and it is hard to beat anyone twice in a year, see Vermont last year and SB historically. Do not take anyone lightly. Focus on the day's opponent. Cannot speak for practice but I do subscribe to the school of next play and I do hear the staff telling the boys to make the next play. Let's just keep making more than the other team! League games are rough, almost like everyone is a playoff game because they are so important.

neither one of you disagrees with me-

holding a team to 5-0 in the first half, when you hold them to only 12 shots (5 SOG) and the goalie has 5 saves, is generally considered good defense.  second half could be a different story.  i already wrote that bollinger played great. 

and i didnt say BC is a bad team- LI27 did.  i think they could bounce back and make the AE tourney.

Still likes to force the ball 1 and 1 on 11 shots, 5 turnovers. Cassidy will take care of him. Eccles is a the real deal. Eccles, Tehoka and Patterson 30 of their 41 shots.

Much more energy tonight than I've seen in past games. Matsu is a beast with his hustle and got the game ball. Bolli was solid in goal, but someone needs to talk to that kid about the outlet passes to no-one after a save. Didn't burn us too bad today (two turnovers that I saw). Refs were rough on SBU and (IMHO) got several calls wrong. Seems like the bulk of our goals involve "bulldozer" crease crashes or ankle breaking dodges from X. After gaining possession on a FO, we set up the "chess board" over and over, only to hold the ball for 20 seconds 10 yards north of GLE on the wing before some weak crash and burn trip to the goal drawing doubles but getting so intertwined with D sticks that we can't even shuffle pass the ball. Movement got better in Q4. '15/'16 teams were much more elegant on O.  They played as a team, '19 play as individuals, hence the dodge-happy offense. Go SB.

if youre gonna watch the replay of one game- watch this one.  exciting lacrosse, transition, huge saves, poles scoring, etc.  some bizarre calls and non calls too.  the refs allowed some obvious hits/slashes.

bollinger gets the game ball but honorable mention to our defensive mid / faceoff corps- pugal, pedone, matsuoka, enneguess.  5-0 faceoffs in the 4Q. 

big day for daly.  other than madsen, their starting six shot a terrible 4/28.

walsh sat out the first half, cvg ran x.  bollinger's outlets were spot on and created transition.  8 different scorers. 

some mental errors in the last few min when we had the chance to kill some clock.  EMO was terrible today.  #28 was partially locking haun and mostly took him out of the game.

i knew this would happen but refs cant call the dive right, because it's either a push & flag, or a goal the other way.  especially when they arent inside the crease and call it from the perimeter.

funny moment with CPJr scored and nearly half of the sideline mimicked the signature "military press".  ;D ;D

three straight and beat both local teams.  so that's good. GO SB


PS- the johnnies hit 4 posts, i think 2 in the first Q and one crossbar with 4 seconds left

i still think the experiment with having poles handle the ball is costing us possessions, especially given how much talent we have that can play offense.  also hanging the stick in traffic continues to cost us.  in the end this loss won't hurt too bad; focus on the AE now. GO SB

Chairman, we are very up and down. I do not really have a good feel for the team, the offense the last two games has been so heavy with a few guys trying to take 1 on 1 shots. That works fine at the end of the possession but as a base offense? We out shot Princeton by 16 shots and were plus 9 on ground balls. The reason we got smoked? The quality of a large volume of our shots were miserable, shooting 20 seconds into the offense after you have been on defense for 4 minutes is not smart. Most coaches consider that a turnover. I might be wrong but I got the sense our coaches were happy with that because that player kept firing low percentage shots. Princeton with 10 assists to our 2, can you spell ugly offense. I know there were other issues as well , Bollinger had a pedestrian game for him (but point blank shots do not help), defensive lapses, turnovers ( all things that happen in a game) But if you do not score you do not win. Hoping for a big push in these final regular season games, I have seen glimpses of all the talent and hard work but is is time it all comes together. Preseason ranked #2 in AE, we can still make it happen, this conference is really wide open

As I understand it (source removed), Gibson has them running a one-trick-pony offense. When the stars don't align just so, the kids resort to 1v1 dodges from the wings or from behind. No real finesse that I can identify. The only time we really move the ball is on EMO. An 'Eastwood' style attackman who finds holes and moves off-ball would probably help us to some degree. Perhaps it's a down year for the AE conference as a whole, but the fundamental errors (catching, throwing, groundballs) make it hard to believe this is Division I lacrosse. Hopefully they can pull a rabbit out of a hat these next few games, and not rely on the recurring magician that is Bollinger..
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: LaxFan on April 12, 2019, 09:16:56 am
From talking with current players, there are kids that can ball and Nagle refuses to play them.  FO (#11) that smokes starters at practice and some middies and attack (#77 #41 and #48) that can create offense.  With White out for the season, the team does lose some offensive output and leadership, however,  Nagle can add a few more pieces to make this a solid team.  As teams study and learn the SBU offense they see that it is pretty easy to shut down the 1 on 1 dodge.  The Princeton game was a clear example of a defense that understood this and rotated off ball well to shut down skip passes. Nagle has to get over the mindset of playing kids he likes and create a team that can compete consistently.  Hopefully, the next three games will good ones!

This offense has no where near the amount of talent it once had: Rooney, Rodgers, Eastwood, Schultz, Hughes, Tundo, etc.... let alone Crowley, Mcbride, Compitello.  Yes, the coaches need to adjust the scheme to the players they have now but the talent being recruited to SB is not what it once was.  If you watch the games it is pretty obvious to see they don't have a guy who can take over a game or consistently put stress on a defense.

I get that this team does not have an elite player like Rooney, Crowley or Rogers who all have 200 career points but there is plenty of talent on this team. Many players who were All Americans, All State, All Long Island, starters on state championship teams that were annual elite programs. I hate comparing specific players and stats over the years, its also when you are comparing the current team to players whose Bio and stats are complete but I will throw out a few.

Haun already has 104 points, 68 goals and is on pace to be in the top 10 in points all time for SB. He has more goals than Hughes and on pace to have more than Schultz.
Compitello has 68 career goals and had 50% of his points in his monster jr.year, Many of the names you said had 1 year where they got 35-40% of their career totals in a big Jr. or Sr. year.  Compitello had 25 assists his red shirt sophomore year and 35 his All American Jr. year.
Pickel and Vanginhoven have 40 and 41 goals on pace to have more than Compitello (68), Hughes(66)
Walsh had the 3rd most assists all time for a freshman (25) to Rogers and Crowley's 26. Crowley had 26 assists 3 times. Schultz never had more than 24. He is on pace to crack the top 5 all time for SB

While I do not see a player on the roster who will make Stony Brook's Mount Rushmore, there is talent


There are so many players who make a team but you can see by just picking two attackmen and two midfielders they compare historically. Defensively I could list so many players. Bollingeer, Rees, Matz,Cassidy, Pugal,  It's tough to see this team like the glory quarterfinal losing team right now but they can start by winning an AE tournament championship. They got a regular season championship last year, they have to keep building.
I would like to see 3 things:
* open up the offense and stop poor quality shots
* play smart and have fun
* Coaches do not need to complain about every call

Our Championship run starts now. I truly believe this team and staff can do it. Go Wolves

Ryland Rees, Stony Brook
What happens when the best player on your team is an LSM? I donít know you should probably ask Stony Brook, because theyíre living through that very scenario right now with Ryland Rees. With international experience for Team Canada, Rees may be the best-equipped player in this draft in terms of dealing with the current crop of professional players in the PLL. Rees has the size, the power and the ballhandling ability to make an impact on a PLL team that could use a little less brawn and a little more brain from their stable of poles.

Kyle Devitte: America East
The America East, once dominated by a high-octane UAlbany team, is now a rowdy bar fight. Albany is still one of the best teams, but Vermont just beat them 10-9 in the same week that the Catamounts lost to UMass-Lowell 8-4 in their worst performance of the season. Then this week, Vermont kept it going with a win against Binghamton. While other teams in the conference have struggled to salvage their seasons ó Binghamton and UMBC in particular ó other teams have risen up and gained ground. Hartford was winless until its home wins against Stony Brook and UMass-Lowell. The Sea Wolves are currently 3-1 and 7-5 overall; their remaining games are UVM and the Danes. Itís hard to pick a front-runner, but it looks like Vermont might retain its first place spot.

the cats create a lot of offense; i think they took 10 shots before we even got one off.  they are able to play in tight spaces (canadian style).  they're competitive because they control the ball and have a talented goalie.  but in the second half, we shut off their strong hands.

the first half, washuta held us in check, he's good.  after a flurry of 7 early goals, bollinger came alive. 

i dont know if anyone saw the faceoff that deskewicz won, but if that's an option, it's a great sign.

They have to beat Albany at home on Friday to lock down the top seed. The winner will come out with one loss and the head-to-head advantage. If SB wins, Vermont would get the #2 because they beat Albany head to head. If Albany wins, SB gets the #2 because they beat Vermont.

Strange thing I see is that the men and women will play their semis and finals on the same day. SB women have to win next Sunday at New Hampshire to lock that down but it means there would be four games played in one day at LaValle on May 2.

Itís been a good month for Stony Brook. After dropping a game against Hartford, the Seawolves have won four-straight America East games. Saturday, it was a 10-9 comeback win against Vermont.

That puts Stony Brook in a position to earn the top spot and hosting rights for the America East Tournament. The Seawolves host UAlbany, 7 p.m. Friday.

Must win game Friday night. If this team is on a championship path they need to get this win.  Playing Albany in the AE Championship here in Lavalle or in Albany next Saturday in front of 4,500 fans and an ESPN audience, you tell me.  We want them in our house! The Albany run ends here, starting Friday.

Agreed, must win. It can be done. I think this team is ready after Vermont!

Just checked NCAA stats page, pretty cool site with tons of stats
#5 in both turnovers and clearing percentage
#8 in man down defense
Haun ranked #86 in goals per game, #90 in points per game (150 ranked)
Haun ranked #29 in shooting percentage (150 ranked)
Bollinger #27 in saves per game (75 ranked) #30 save %, and #33 in goals against
Haun and Harrell #14 in man up goals (75 ranked)
Walsh #61 in assists per game (150 ranked) McCannel #108, Haun #148

we certainly couldve been 10-3 at this point if we just turned the SHU and hartford games, which were winnable.  we werent in PSU, princeton, and even marist.

with that said- we are a solid 5-1 on the road.  that's good. GO SB

Not that they need anything else to play for, but tomorrow night's game might also decide this year's commissioners cup. Stony brook had a 9 point lead heading into the spring season. Women's lacrosse and men's baseball both look to be in good shape to win the regular season titles. A lot of things will have to fall Albany's way in the next couple of weeks if men's lacrosse wins the regular season title.

Interesting that we've won only one championship so far (volleyball) yet lead in points.

Shows that consistent high finishes versus feast or famine is the best way to go for this sort of thing.

Yet we've been edged out in the past by schools like Albany, so the Commissioner's Cup would be quite the feather in the cap for Stony Brook.

Just win tomorrow and Sunday. We'll figure out the logistics at LaValle later.

so that ends the 10 game streak that started in 2014.  we might see them again though as the seedings i think are SB vs #4, and VT vs ua.

rain was a factor for both teams.  sympathize with ua to lose all that momentum after a long weather delay.

after a bleak 3-4 start with losses to SHU, marist, and hartford, we then got to 9-5 (5-1), will get more top twenty votes, host the tourney, reg season title, and a step closer to the haskell cup.  more AE honors.

also we beat hofstra, albany, SJU, and UMBC.  all our rivals.  nice to beat ua at home on senior night.

if i had my way- the AE freshman team would include estrella and 2nd team should have dugan- but that kinda stuff doesnt usually happen for d-mids.

look out for deskewicz.  he wins draws often and clean, creating breaks.  he couldve been the AE ROY if he played in the first few games. 

great game from pugal and our faceoff squad. GO SB

Hard work and big time plays has gotten us here. Need to focus on the task of beating UMBC. House money that they are here, they have nothing to lose. They are coming in here with a losing record. No pressure on them. We have to play the same way, have fun and be fearless. We are the better team but need to step on them starting with the first whistle, do not let them breathe, do not take them for granted. 60 minutes!! For the seniors

No. 1: Stony Brook Seawolves
A very good turnaround for Jim Nagle and his program on Long Island. The top program in the conference still resides in New York, only in Long Island rather than the Capital Region. The Seawolves ended the season winning six of their last seven games after falling to Hartford in their conference opener by a goal.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER TO WATCH: Their top offensive reason is junior attackman Tom Haun. The Sachem North product leads the team with 31 goals and 43 points, 17 more points than second place Chris Pickel Jr. Sophomore Jack Walsh is Stony Brookís primary feeder with 19 assists.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER TO WATCH: On a team filled with plenty of New Yorkers, one of their best defensive player is from Canada. Stony Brook has a talented duo of defensemen in Canadian Ryland Rees and New Yorker Justin Pugal. They each have 15 and 14 caused turnovers respectively and have also contributed for five points each. Sophomore Danny Cassidy has also been a stud on close defense.

STONY BROOK WINS IF: The Sea Wolves can continue what theyíve been doing well in conference play. Theyíre the best team in the conference in terms of goals per game and are second in goals against. They could improve on their faceoff wins as Nolan Enneguess is 51.9% on draws for the year. It might be an easier trip to the NCAA Tournament if they donít have to face Vermont.

Stony Brook Playing With Confidence at the Right Time
https://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/stony-brook-playing-with-confidence-at-the-right-time/54413

Quote
The group has matured at the right time after a mixed start to the season, and has been on the right side of the knifeís edge of close games in recent weeks. Earlier in the year it wasn't so, as it lost to Marist, Sacred Heart and Hartford in a span of four weeks and was sub-.500.

While Stony Brook may lack some star power ó leading scorer Tom Haun is a known quantity in the America East, but not as much nationally, and All-World defender Ryland Rees is the biggest name on the squad ó itís a tight-knit group thatís greater than the sum of its parts.

ďMore than anything itís a great group of people. Over a 3.0 GPA. I havenít had a single social incident Iíve had to deal with in two-and-a-half years. Theyíre hard working; theyíre respectful. And the best thing is they love being with each other. The highlight of their day is coming down to the locker room to practice. Every day they feel that way. The grind is less of a grind when youíre so connected with your teammates,Ē said Nagle.

The junior leads the team in scoring, and thereís not a senior among the top eight scorers. Thia team is young, but they've been young for a few years so they have experience beyond their class years. Freshman Layton Harrell has emerged as well, scoring two goals and an assist against Albany. He has eight goals in the last four games.

UMBC is up next at LaValle Stadium. The Seawolves beat UMBC 14-7 earlier in the year, but Nagle isnít expecting the same result. Both teams are too good and too closely matched.

"By now in the season if you think you get up four or five goals and the other team is going to lie down, I mean youíre kidding yourself,Ē Nagle said. ďThe expectation is that itís going to somehow wind up a one-goal game. Get that through your guysí heds. Itís going to be a one-goal game.Ē

No. 4 UMBC (4-8, 2-4) vs. No. 1 Stony Brook (9-5, 5-1), Thursday at 7 p.m.
First Time Around: 3/23; Stony Brook won 14-7
Tidbit: This is the first outright AE regular season title for Stony Brook since 2012
Players to Watch: A Tom Haun (Stony Brook), A Trevor Patschorke (UMBC)
For a Different Outcome: In the March meeting the Seawolves raced out to a 7-0 lead. UMBC didnít get on the board until the 7:33 mark of the third period. The Retrievers had chances but shot 0-12 in the first half. They will need a much better start on Thursday.

Today we need to start the new history, new team - new path.  I am expecting this team to be flying from first whistle, they need to be!!  There is talent on both teams, all about energy!!  We need to fight for every ground ball , check and shot.

watched the replay.  bad passing and poor shot selection/placement.  we couldnt hit the cage. 

is it possible that 3-8 UMBC just got really hot suddenly and decided to come alive?  sure.  but we won a lot of faceoffs and still went down 10 goals to a team that barely entered the postseason on a 3 way tiebreaker.

i noticed we had four different mids take the draw on the first four faceoffs; wonder why. 

i otherwise think it's obvious what happened; our entire offense is one-handed, BC planned for this, and shut the strong side.  a few teams did that to us this year, which explains the erratic results this season.  that and terrible SoG.

i still think the experiment with poles playing offense continues to be costly.  and giving up a goal from 70 yards on the 10man ride was a low point.

BC buried us early in transition.  bolly was pulled at 11-2 in the middle of the 3rd (after we doubled them up just a few weeks ago).  we scored 4 late goals but we got torched by 10 goals by the time this was over.

Nagle just posted this on Twitter...Teddy Roosevelt he is not.  He has come up short again and again though...

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Not really my sport, but I think the criticism on this Board isn't in the effort but in the ability to coach the sport as well as some fans would expect.

Plus, I resent Nagle's tweet because going into battle and coaching lacrosse are two very different experiences.  That much I know all too well.

historically, the issue of winning the AE was getting through aLBanY.  but i guess we have a new problem now- beating the rest of the AE. 

2019 (lost to BC in the semi)
2018 (lost to VT in the semi)
2016 (lost to VT in the semi)


and i think it's a matter of time before UML hangs an L on us.

Agreed!  But like others, I think that the AD will renew Nalge's contract.  If the AD was looking to make a move the announcement should have been made and the search for a new coach should be in progress.  The UMBC game clearly showed what a well coached team can do.  Nagle did not have an answer and to me, it looked like he just gave up and watched the clock tick down on the season.

And the argument could be made that Sowell's teams underachieved. 2011 was a huge disappointment and he took off for Navy five minutes after that embarrassing defeat to Hartford in the AE final.

Nagle had two problems. He had the Thompsons in Albany who dominated the America East like Joe Spallina's women do now. But they've been gone for a while and the Seawolves did not grow with Albany. Way back in 2007, Albany and UMBC both went to the NCAA Tournament, so multiple bids were not impossible. But Stony Brook never really progressed beyond their 2012 championship with mostly Sowell's guys. They've been stagnant and it's been pointed out over and over again.

I'm guessing Sowell will get a look but there are other candidates out there.

I believe their contracts were up this year.  This would have happened last year but they had that additional year.  I feel bad for the assistants, especially Gibson but Nagle had to go.   

This was the right move for the program and can't wait to see the team grow under new leadership.  Thank you Shawn Heilbron

but we couldnt get past ualbAny.  which ironically happened a few weeks ago.

The 2016 team had a ton of talent but again couldn't get past VT in the semi's of the AE tourney, and VT was a team they beat in the regular season.  I want to believe with better coaching they win that game. 

Can't really worry about losing players.  That is going to happen and plenty of good ones left after playing for Nagle.  The SB press release say it will be a national search so lets all hope for the best. 

It's a great day for the program.

Stony Brook just completed a 9-6 season and was the top seed in the America East tournament, but was upset by No. 4 seed Maryland-Baltimore County in the semifinals.

Nagle was 68-59 in his career at Stony Brook, including a 31-14 record in the America East. He led the Seawolves to an NCAA tournament berth during his first season in 2012 and six America East semifinal appearances in eight years.

Total speculation but I could see the  Lehigh head coach (Cassese) landing the job. He had a brief stint here as an assistant and is a Long Island native. Otherwise, it could be any number of seasoned assistant coaches looking for that first head coaching opportunity.

The Spallina talk has been going on for about 2 years now.  It's his job if he wants it.  Might be tough for him to leave such a good situation with the ladies team but he has a great coaching staff that can take right over.  Hillier to HC, Kylie to OC and Miceli to DC.  Spallina would have no problem filling out a staff if he chooses to make the move.  I would be all for it if he does.  He's a proven recruiter and basically knows every travel kid on the east coast through Team 91.   
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Triple Lindy on May 14, 2019, 09:26:03 pm
I think Spallina will stay put. His entire collegiate coaching career has been in the womenís game. Heís turned this program  into a consistent winner and national power in a relatively short period of time but they  still haven't broken through into championship weekend. Unfinished business.  Plus, he is very well compensated. It would probably take a significant pay raise to walk away from everything he has going with the womenís program.
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Chairman of the Board on May 14, 2019, 09:47:19 pm
just one thought- if they did go spallina, it's low risk for him.  doesnt even need to budge offices or houses; if it all blows up, his reputation is so strong that he could get another wlax job virtually anywhere that's open.  in fact, if that happens, he could even be right back at SB.

Pure speculation but the he timing of this makes me think Spallina will take over. The women's team gets eliminated on Sunday. Heilbron talks to Spallina and Spallina says he's interested on monday. Tuesday Nagle is out. If they were going to fire Nagle all along, why wait two weeks after their season ended?

My other thought is can Spallina coach men's college lacrosse and the MLL at the same time? I could see that being a conflict of interest.

This is all pure speculation. I don't know anything.

Having played for SB during Nagle's tenure and seeing how Spallina runs the women's program, I have no doubt in my mind he would turn the mens program around quickly.  The guy can coach and he can DEFINITELY recruit.

I like Sowell but agree with the been there done that statement.  If it's not Spalinna I would love to see them take a long hard look at some of the top assistants from top teams.  An assistant with a LI background from a winning program would be great.  I see Sowell as more of a fall back option as opposed to a leading candidate.

now that the news is fully confirmed- my first question is- who is available that would even be interested?  then, how much $ do we have?  how much does the camp circuit bring in (BIG question on LI)?

the admin likes to go high-profile for these types of jobs.  they sometimes avoid assistants, different divisions, etc.  Just my observation based on history.

with NO inside information, here are some names to chat about (NOTE- i went overly-broad), and in no order:


pietramala: seat is warm at the Hop, local LI guy, high profile, good coach

spallina: great success as the women's coach, well liked; different sport

cassese: some success at lehigh, local guy, ex asst under tiffany, well liked, high profile; might be in the mix for navy/harvard

bates: had some good years at princeton, minor disciplinary issue; might be a nice fit

pressler: has the tools; high profile, loyal to bryant after the duke fiasco

wellner: assoc/interim HC at navy, likes SB, coached with sowell, getting attention this month; senior enough?


recently let go and available:

wojcik: didnt do much at harvard but recruited well (a key for us)

sowell: analysis is obvious; former coach under different AD, might not be interested

seremet: won't happen, but former asst coach late 90s


possible young coaches to pry away:

torpey: can't argue with his success at HPU, new program

polley: has a good setup at BU and nice wins against good teams, new program

poli: done much with little at QU, has interim tag

callahan: seat could be hot at dartmouth, alum, great guy, loves SB


longshots that would likely never consider it, but i offer the following:

warne: local guy, probably knows nagle well, doing well at GT

brecht: a nice fit, local guy, but was snubbed in 2012 and took RU, which is better positioned now in the B1G

amplo: a decade ago accepted the job and then it left the same week; done well at marquette, new program

meade: longtime navy coach, stalling at furman, local LI guy

cannella: entrenched at umass, former SB assistant, LI guy


other longshots from outside D1:

rogers: knows CNY, at cuse, longtime cortland coach (SUNY pension?)

coon: knows NY, success at RIT, which faces similar issues to SB

peluso: LI guy, worked at naz, also RIT and now "local" at stevens tech, similarities to SB

jez: was interested back in 2012, did well at CW Post & army; both similar to SB

chamberlain: close to the program, alum, team 91 network, LI guys; success at FarmState


assistants to consider:

taylor (current vol & alum)
camposa (molloy, navy, rutgers; sowell guy)
compitello (lehigh, yale, SHU, bryant)
wilson (lehigh, brown, rutgers)

AD has to make a statement with new hire so will probably go with a hot assistant coach.   Young and will have the potential to build the program back to the standards we are used to seeing.

Do not like seeing anyone lose their job but unfortunately it is a results business. Staff and team had a great regular season but program needed to make the next step and win the conference playoffs.  Wish the whole staff great success in their future.

Important next few weeks for the AD, He needs to choose wisely.

Another school (though probably not DI level) will hire him just based on having been recently selected as conference coach of the year, even though that achievement doesn't mean much in a weak conference like the AEC.

As we begin the search for our next head men's lacrosse coach, I want to express my gratitude to Jim Nagle for his eight years of dedicated service to Stony Brook.
 
I'm not going to make any other comments regarding the search but we will identify the right individual to lead our program forward. Our expectation is to be elite in both men's and women's lacrosse and, given the significance of the sport on Long Island, I have extremely high standards for both programs.

Used to seeing? Remember it's been nine years since we came within one goal of the Final Four. That's the main reason Nagle is out.

We learned back then that we had what it took to compete with the big boys. But we never got back to that level. The next coach needs to keep that in mind. If he's successful, we may have the same problem the women have being held back a bit by a weak conference. But that's a problem you live with unless you upgrade to multi-bid.

Post by: Chairman of the Board on May 17, 2019, 02:22:06 pm
characteristics wish list (some of which the current staff satisfies):

-a local LI guy that knows the HS circuit, speaks the language, has the relationships
-knowledge of the non-varsity circuit (clubs, camps, summer, travel)
-ability to improve the SOS (relationships again)
-recruiting (which is somewhat of a marketing job)
-assistants that can break down film and adjust (pre-game prep, halftime, etc)
-alumni outreach
-fundraising
-promotion (convention, social media, local news)
-charisma/leadership


Of course im asking for everything (which doesnít exist).  SB can be a hard sell, even to LIers.  So we need someone that can get back to the next level.  Iíd like to see pipelines to the schools that traditionally have provided great student athletes for SB- the macarthurs, islips, sachems, SWRs, etc.

Agreed. I donít see how/why Spallina would wanna leave behind the womenís program heís  built. Heís well compensated, more and more big time recruits are coming in and there is unfinished business (final four/national title).

again without any inside information on this one- i'd add that even if it is spallina, fortunately the women's program is at a point where it can probably attract a top coach.

and if he gets the job, i fear that expectations will be sky high and that's usually a let down.  if you don't win the AE in year one, everyone's going to question- why did you hire the women's coach.

also, another item to add to the wish list is to avoid a "stepping stone" coach.  a young asst with higher aspirations that will just leave after cutting teeth at SB.  would be nice to get a longer term candidate.

Unfortunately We are a mid major, the young assistant only advances if we win. We do need an old retread. If a young coach comes in here and leads us to AE titles and a couple of NCAA wins our franchise is worth more and we can attract his replacement.

The Ideal longer term candidate is in the mold of a Kevin Cassese type, that model can work to. Not too old but experienced with solid results

What makes everyone think Cassese would be interested. Lehigh just brought in the #8 freshmen class and is in a better conference when you look at it top to bottom. The academic profile of the school is also a much easier sell for lacrosse players (great business and engineering school). Their recruiting pool is also much more diverse then SBUís. Lehigh can recruit off Long Island, Philadelphia, Jersey, New England and Maryland. End of the day they recruit nationally compared to SBU. We need someone to recruit Long Island, Upstate and Canada at an extremely high level. The program today is also in a very different place then when Nagel took the job. He took the job after a NCAA quarterfinal appearance and multiple trips to the America East championship. In the last 8 years we have been to 2 America East Championship games, the last one being in 2016. We need to find someone who is going to be an animal in recruiting and has the ability to develop talent over the course of their careers on campus. Thatís how we get this program back to where we all want it to be.

Post by: everything bagel on May 24, 2019, 07:40:50 am
Laxfactory, I do not think Cassese is leaving Lehigh, I said in the mold of Kevin Cassese. In my humble opinion I think the team needs a younger , more progressive Head Coach who can relate better to his players. I think a current OC at a blue blood program. Short of that we need an established coach, younger, IN THE MOLD OF CASSESE. age , demeanor etc.

This current team is ready for next step. Regular season champs two years in a row including outright champs this year. Team returns much of the team minus two starters and the entire offense. Next coach needs to be able to make our current players better and teach them how to win playoff games

Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Laxfactory23 on May 24, 2019, 08:13:24 am
The whole Blue Blood assistant coach idea is interesting. When you look at those blue blood programs (ACC/Big10) what assistants would you put on the list? If you look at a school that hired a ďblue bloodĒ assistant last season letís look at Colgate. They brought in an assistant from Notre Dame as the head coach. You look at their season, start of great with a huge win versus Syracuse. They go on to finish the season after that win 3-9. I just feel that if we can get an established assistant or head coach, that has been through the ringer a bit more the team that has been close will take an immediate jump. Any assistant that comes in as a first time head coach goes through growing pains. They think they have a great idea and it is not. A more seasoned head coach has had to make in season on the fly cultural and schematic adjustments and if we feel we can win now that may be best for the program.

I think we are missing a very key point, just because we won the regular season AE championship does not mean we can win in 2020. The best shot the team had to make the tournament was  2019 this year. Justan Pugal and Ryland Rees cannot not be replaced. With no proven long poles left on this roster, the D takes a major hit. No new coach can undo the weak recruiting that has been done over the last 3 years. The AE conference (although weak) had parity across the board except for Binghamton and Hartford. We start 2020 as the 3rd or 4th best team in the conference. A new coach whether a young unproven OC or a seasoned Head coach will not change that. This hire is for the future of Stonybrook Mens lacrosse.

I do not see players leaving because of this coaching change. I think the are thrilled but lets be honest, a 1st year coach is a lame duck when it comes to the current talent pool.

Not just two starting defenders but the best defender on the team in Pugal and a ground ball machine in Rees. They will be impossible to replace. UMBC is for real, Vermont and Albany can beat us on any given day. Lowell gets better every year. Will any 2020 recruits be impact players as Freshman? Big question mark?

Pugal and Rees are great players who had great careers but unfortunately every player ultimately graduates and somebody new get's a chance. Whoever takes their place needs to make plays and others need to help pick up the slack. Losing 2 of 10 starters is a low percentage compared to most teams.

The entire offense is back minus Daly and Wayne White is coming back , I looked at the blog and it seems to show alot of defensemen coming in next year.

Looking forward to the new coach making all the units better.

Games were great this weekend, my biggest takeaway was that Virginia players were going after ground balls like they were the last ones they would ever chase. Loved the intensity

If the new SB coach can harness that kind of energy, I see great things.

Unterstein has LI roots and a ton of connections.  Nice to see him in the mix...Would love to see him get the job.  Tight with Spallina as well. 

Not sure  going back and getting Sowell or Wellner is the right thing to do.  Been there don that,  It's time to move forward.

ill add a few cents...

while i dont think sowell is a bad choice for the role- a lot of this is based on past performance.  meaning, we are assuming just because he did well he can/will do it again.  so the moment he shows up and it's 7-7 (3-3), we'll all be disappointed.

with that said- he found much success and there's that SUNY pension...

ross is an interesting idea, specifically because of the canadian connection.  which has worked for SB in the past.  duch, campbell, eastwood, laforet, rees, mcbride, belton, rogers.  even mccannell, kaschalk, matsuoka.

Navy & Stony Brook
There is nothing of substance regarding Navy and Stony Brook. Stony Brook is in no rush with their head coach search, per a source. The only names Iíve heard so far has been Duke assistant Matt Danowski and Marquetteís Joe Amplo.

Navy is an even bigger question mark, with Wellner still being the interim head coach. Names such as Amplo, who reportedly spent the weekend in Annapolis, Towsonís Shawn Nadelen, Loyolaís Charley Toomey, and Maryland assistant J.L. Reppert have been thrown out there for the job.

Hampton
Thereís nothing on Hampton.

But who could be good candidates? Potentially former Lehigh assistant Errol Wilson, former Navy head coach Rick Sowell, maybe even Ohio Northern and Redwoods Lacrosse Club head coach Nat St. Laurent? Could a dark horse like Chazz Woodson appear? Thereís no read on the potential candidates for this job whatsoever.

I have also heard from folks pretty close to the program that Matt Danowski is a top target.  He has deep LI roots and significant coaching experience under his dad who is probably a top 5 lacrosse coach all time.  What more can you ask for? That would be a home run imo.
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season

Post by: Laxfactory23 on June 04, 2019, 08:07:45 pm
Danowski would definitely be a news worthy hire. My only argument against Matt would be that he has only ever coached at Duke. The recruiting profile and style of recruiting is very different. Duke has the luxury of hand picking incredible talent. A guy who I think really fits the mold more of what we need is possibly Anthony Gilardi from Towson. He has over 15 years of coaching experience and is a Baldwin, NY native. He has spent time at Ohio State, Navy and Towson. Towson is in a similar recruiting bracket as Stony Brook, and Towsonís success is predicated on player development. I feel like Gilardi may be the best fit for what we need. And this is not saying that Matt is not going to be a great coach and isnít already one. His sample size is just smaller then some other potential candidates.
Title: Re: SB Lacrosse 2019 Season
Post by: Triple Lindy on June 04, 2019, 09:20:55 pm
In my opinion, hiring Danowski would be mostly about grabbing some headlines and creating excitement in the short term. Heíd get some  head coaching experience here while being fully intent on wanting the Duke job when his dad retires (which could be in just a few years). And yes, recruiting at Duke is a cake walk compared what it would take get a players here. We should look elsewhere.

I very strongly agree. Danowski is exactly the kind of coach the players need and would love to play for!! If he leaves in 5 years to take the Duke head coach position so be it. What is the shelf life for a D1 coach these days anyway.  We are not getting a great coach/ longtime coach (lifer) at Stony Brook. Lets be realistic folks this is Stony Brook not Maryland and AE is not the Big 10. We need help right now!

Job one for new head coach is to make sure Austin Deskowitz the emerging #1 FOGO stays with the team. Especially with Nolan Enneguess  in the portal.

Agreed!  The players need a coach that will excite them and this hire would do so.  If Danowski is hired, he can take the offense to the next level and be a major player in the AE.  Based on what we saw this past season, the pieces are there just need a coach that will put the puzzle together.  UMBC is a great example of what a good coaching staff can do with a decent team.

Also Danowski would need to win at Stony Brook if he's going to get the Duke job when when his father retires. If he, or anybody really, can come in and win enough to be considered for an ACC coaching job, then I'll be very happy. Remember, the last guy hired to take over an ACC program was a national runner up.

Exactly! Why would you not want an excellent coach in Matt Danowski that builds his resume by turning our program around (even if only for a 5 year stint). Most likely he hires his staff that will have another great candidate to continue the success created by his hire. I think if he wants the job it would be foolish to pass on him.

Dano Sr. is the best coach in college lacrosse with a great connection to his players. His demeanor portrays nothing but professionalism and class. Matt has learned from his father and has been very successful in the OC role for Duke. He can recognize talent and be a very successful recruiter. Long Islanders will want to play for Matt Danowski.  I believe the top LI High School players eliminated Stony Brook as an option. Every single one of them heard the nightmares about the prior staff.

So with the potential hire of Amplo at Navy, Wellner might be a real possibility now.  I could see Wellner going to Marquette also.  A well-established mid-major program like SBU but less work, in my opinion, to get Marquette back on the scene.

I don't like saying this, but I would be very underwhelmed if Wellner were hired. An assistant coach on a staff that was just let go is not what I'm looking for. He may very well be a great coach, but I don't think the iron is exactly hot for him after this past season.

Wellner 'disappointed' about missing out on Navy lacrosse job

Wellner told Gladchuk from the outset he was interested in replacing Sowell as head coach and set about proving his capabilities while holding the interim tag.

ďI think my interview probably started the Friday after Coach Sowell was let go and concluded on Monday afternoon prior to when Coach Amplo was offered the job. It was an ongoing interview and Chet and I spent a lot of time together,Ē Wellner said.

ďIím certainly appreciative of the opportunity Chet gave me and the chance to show him and the Naval Academy Athletic Association staff that I was the right man for the job,Ē Wellner added.

Wellner felt all along he had a legitimate shot at becoming the head coach and naturally believed he was the best choice. The 41-year-old Long Island native was granted a formal interview by Gladchuk and did not hide his disappointment about being passed over.

ďYes, I am disappointed. Absolutely Iím disappointed, but thatís how these things go. You either win them or you lose them,Ē he said.

ďWe didnít get into that and Iím not sure what Coach Amploís future plans are at all,Ē Wellner said. ďIím going to pursue some head coaching opportunities in the near term and Iím sure weíll circle back at some point.Ē

Wellner is believed to be a leading candidate for the vacancy at Stony Brook, which is where he first began working for Sowell. Stony Brook went 32-14 overall and 15-1 in the America East Conference during the three seasons Wellner was on staff.

Post by: The Voice since 1988 on June 20, 2019, 08:50:16 pm
Had a nice conversation with a friend who will remain anonymous. If he wants to chime in, he always can.

We agreed on one important thing. Gilardi may prove to be just fine. But SB needed to reach for the stars and they didn't. Danowski would have been the home run the program has been starving for.

Imagine if the guys broadcasting the PLL said "Stony Brook coach Matt Danowski" every time he touched the ball.

Local high school coaches wanted him, alumni wanted him, there apparently are some deep-pocketed alumni who offered to help pay Danowski if needed. Do you think they do that for anyone else?

I do want to be fair to Gilardi, though. He checks off the boxes. He can coach. He can recruit. The offense will be better. SB will compete. Like I said, he may prove to be just fine. And Danowski could have sprinted for wherever after his contract was up. But so could Gilardi. Think about it, that only happens if he's massively successful, in which case we find a way to make him stay.

I know Danowski also would have vaulted the men's program back to the forefront, possibly taking some of the spotlight from the women which some think Joe Spallina might not like. I don't necessarily buy that. My answer is simple: Geno Auriemma and Jim Calhoun. They feuded until football got in the mix, but UConn benefited from having both of them.

But SB should always be reaching for the next level. Especially in sports where they can relatively easily. Lax and baseball are sports where SB can contend for national championships. That's what Spallina and Senk do, that's what everybody should be doing.

Post by: Wolfie_MD on June 20, 2019, 09:48:58 pm
Well said- Danowski was my first choice but I certainly can't argue with this hire.

Any of these names were better than Nagle. Gilardi should be a very good fit. His offense at Towson was really good. I think the other thing that cannot be understated is that Gilardi should be able to open up a pipeline as well to some players from Maryland. His main job will be to keep good Long Island players home. Obviously we will still lose some of the top talent but there are enough good players here to make it work.

A skilled recruiter touted for player development, Gilardi said heís already made calls to current players. The teamís top eight scorers return, so Gilardi has talent with which to work. ďWeíre attacking this from Day 1 the right way and getting those guys involved.Ē

This was the right choice IMO.   Many were  caught up with the Danowski name and I get it. But, Gilardi has the mid-major recruiting experience that ultimately helped get Towson to a Final  Four (what SB is starving for). Danowski brings the name but has he really  been battle tested while recruiting/coaching under his dad at an already elite Duke program?  These are the kinds of things that stand out during the interview process.

Right. It's not difficult to recruit at places like Duke or UVa, so getting top recruits to commit to programs like Towson (or SBU) says something good about a coach.

Hearing great things about the new coach. Clearly time for new blood and a different perspective.  Super hot yesterday and could not find anything on TV so I watched the UMBC playoff loss.  Frustrating watch. UMBC beat us soundly and deserved to win, they just made more plays, crazy though that a majority of the team statistics were relatively even. What I do not understand was why Walsh was out of the game for a majority of the 2nd quarter. Early in the quarter he makes a great look to Grippe at the end of the shot clock for a quality shot by Grippe. Score is 3-1 (we are still in the game) Walsh does not return until 3 minutes left and we are losing 8-1.  Offense was way off in the 2nd quarter and we made some bad turnovers, team played super tight in 2nd quarter and that comes from the coach. Why would you bench your best facilitator in a win or go home game??  Maybe that decision sent Nagle home. It's a shame, 1 really bad quarter is all it takes.  A lot of hard work by players and coaches end just like that. I would have liked to see this team win the AE championship. The regular season championship is nice but just not enough, this team should have done more. Let's get it in 20!! Wishing Coach Gilardi great success!!

Stony Brook head coach Anthony Gilardi has tabbed JP Brazel and Mike Chanenchuk as the Seawolves' assistant coaches, according to a press release from SBU late last week.

After spending eight seasons at Hofstra, Brazel will serve as Stony Brook's associate head coach and defensive coordinator. Chanenchuk, meanwhile, comes to Stony Brook after two season at Sacred Heart and another two years with NYIT. Both coaches grew up on Long Island, as did Gilardi.

Larry Kline will join Kevin McKeown's staff at Binghamton, according to a press release from the University. Kline spent last season as Stony Brook's defensive coordinator after stops at UMass Lowell and Washington College. He spent 2011 with Binghamton, his alma mater.

WUSB interview with coach gilardi: https://twitter.com/WUSBSports/status/1155912009738792960

very excited, and is recruiting hard.  motion offense, wants to leverage the large senior class.  sounds like spallina's success is the model.  added rutgers, fairfield.  wants to increase RPI by playing top ten teams. 

the social media presence is larger right away.

And defense with them at SBU was never really that good. So disgusting how much Nagle screwed up those teams. Basically wasted and stole those players years of eligibility. Excited to see what real coaches will do with the tons of talent on this team. Have to really thank and praise AD for doing all the right things with the new hires to try and turn things around.

Walsh has transferred to Sacred Heart.

The defense loses their two top guys in Pugal and Rees, so finding LSMs will be big come the fall. So will a primary faceoff man as Enneguess transferred to UMass over the summer. Rising sophomore Austin Deskewicz is the teamís top returning draw specialist, going 24-of-36 (66.7%) in five games in 2019. Tristan Dowd is another returning option.
