Title: G9: STONY BROOK @ JMU - SNY - 3:30PM

I might go to this one. Hoping we're competitive and it's closer than last year's playoff game. It's their homecoming though and they had a bye this weekend, so I can't be  too optimistic. In any case, go SB!! I'm sure the seniors want this one bad.

“You’ve got to play the game within yourself, you’ve got to be yourself,” Priore said. “When you look at how Elon won that game and you look at the close games they’ve played, you can’t be looking at trying to create situations — you’ve just got to let them come to yourselves.”

Fortunately for Priore and his team, they operate under the same offensive approach as Elon. With a run-heavy offense, sticking to who they are as a team may give them their best shot against JMU while also staying true to their offensive identity.

A matchup that may only be seen a maximum of five times on Saturday could be the most intriguing battle of the day. JMU has done tremendously in all aspects of special teams — returns, kicking and return coverage — but so has Stony Brook.

For a JMU offense ready to get a full game of consistent and steady play from all its talents, the game plan is simple. Given that the Seawolves have a strong front seven and  secondary that can be exposed, spreading the ball across the field early on will set up for an easier sledding.

“Coach Kirkpatrick always does a good job every week of trying to attack the weaknesses of what our opposing defense does,” redshirt junior quarterback Ben DiNucci said. “Any time you can try to push the ball vertically down the field or get guys space on the edges that always good.”

I think the weather is a factor Saturday in our favor. The forecast is rain heavy at times with wind that plays into our ground and pound  offense.   Passing will be difficult at best so advantage SBU .

I heard we weren't likely to have much rain during the game, but in any case, the nastier the better. Can't make it to this one, but will be watching on TV. Feeling much better about this one than the playoff game last year. JMU has shown they're mortal and can lose. Go SB!

Key Player: QB Joe Carbone is always the key player in the Stony Brook offense. The running game has been solid all season. Carbone just has to protect the ball to give the Seawolves a chance. Stony Brook never asks Carbone to go win the game, they just expect that he will not go out and lose the game. In the loss to James Madison in last year’s playoffs, Carbone threw five interceptions to five different Dukes. If Stony Brook is going to have a chance in this game, Carbone much be more efficient than that. The Dukes feed off of turnovers, so for the Seawolves to stay in the game, Carbone has to protect the ball.

Coach Mike Houston was able to use the week off to allow some players to heal some bumps and bruises, while also getting the team back to some of the basics of the schemes that they may have been short on in the previous few weeks. The Dukes are kicking too many field goals when they get into the red zone.

Fantasy Bonus Baby: WR Riley Stapleton has been the go to receiver for quarterback Ben Dinucci. Stapleton leads the team with 41 catches, 482 yards and five touchdowns. When DiNucci is extending plays, he looks for Stapleton along the sideline. In most red zone situations, Stapleton is the end zone target.

Houston said JMU is going to have to get as many players to the ball as possible to try to slow them down.“
 Because you don't see one guy bringing those running backs down,” Houston said.

“They have such size up front, and they're going to just lean on you all day long,” Houston said. “And it really takes a lot out of you. So we're going to have to have some fresh bodies in the ballgame.”

Houston said the Dukes will likely see three basic defensive fronts from the Seawolves: a 4-2-5 (similar to JMU), a 3-3 stack and a “Bear” front.

IT'S GAMEDAY GENTLEMEN!!!

Being from Virginia, this game always gets me hyped. Especially since JMU is a national power now. If we don't turn the ball over a bunch we can keep this close. It'll be their homecoming though, so the stadium will be LOUD and they'll be ready coming off of a bye. GO SB!!

Watching game on SNY. It is early, but I see some poor tackling technique (not wrapping guys up) by SB defense that is proving to be costly.

Post by: VA_Seawolf on October 27, 2018, 04:24:56 pm
That INT from Carbone killed what was likely a scoring drive. The penalties on the drive where we were going to kick a field goal were ugly. Penalties in general have been ugly thus far, but we're moving the ball well and looking good. The run game is working, which I wasn't really expecting.

It's a 7-7 game and we're in it. The decision to punt and flip the field really panned out well for us on that last drive and led to the Liotine long TD run.

huge half from heslop. 

the bone is either right on the #s or way off today.  it's raining.  the one INT was off the back foot and he lobbed it into a 1v1 coverage with a free safety zoned in on our receiver.

JMU is very good at killing drives.  almost as good as SB (meaning our flags).  :)

this is one of those games where we look ok, JMU looks pretty good, and yet, we are up 3.  it's a testament to how devastating turnovers can be.

PS maine beat up on ualbanY.

JMU line is opening up holes but we are really containing them- at home, on homecoming. GO SB

That last one was a deflected pass, but there was another INT the defender just dropped. I won't fault Carbone for that last one really, but it's literally like he just doesn't see the defenders sometimes.

we were getting some balls batted down and other INTs dropped.  it was bound to happen.

in other news.  the 2nd half we are in their backfield disrupting their offense.  so much for a "boring" conference foe!

towson is up 8 on delaware.

We have not moved the ball well at all in the second half. That's concerning. If we're going to win this, we've got to do something NOW.

So many close calls that could have helped us both ways. That last drive could have been a catch for a TD, and several times we've gotten some lucky bounces that have prevented Carbone from having 5 INTs in this game too.

This drive will decide the game. Let's see if we can finally get it together. This is way closer than it should have been, so we've got that going for us.

Go for the TD. Forget field goals.  I don't trust our kicking game.

If Wingate doesn't fall down on that 4th and 10, that's probably a touchdown and a W.

Why is every pass a sideline pass? Why not use the entire field?

That's all that was open and all Carbone could really hit today tell you the truth.

The playing calling and time Mgmt in that last drive were just horrendous. Coaching, coaching, coaching. Defense played their tail off and deserved a better fate.

After the 4th down conversion, spiking the ball was probably what we should have done rather than let time tick down. Preserving time and the time out would have given us more play-calling options. The kick at the end was just too short. Can't really hate on Lucansky as it was accurate, just not enough leg.

I was really disappointed with the QB play today. We win this by two TD easily if we were stronger in that aspect of the game. I don't now if  it's the talent we're getting or the coaching, but we've got to do better there.

Time Mgmt is something that is ingrained in players during practice by the coaching staff. This aspect is all on the coaching staff.

Hard to get top flight QB’s st FCS level ( Wentz is the exception to that rule). Carbone panics, doesn’t have great pocket presence, tends to be inaccurate, and seems to throw the ball away at inopportune times. Given his limitations, I question a lot of these high-level of difficulty plays that are called for him. Again, comes back to coaching.

Overall, SBU has a solid team, and this was a winnable game. Their D is outstanding. Better QB, another credible wide-out, and some coaching changes, and maybe this team could get to the Final 4.

Carbone throws well enough (w/our talented receivers) v mediocre CAA opposition when our  very good ground game is drawing in the defense. Against teams like JMU who are pretty good against the run and have good cornerbacks/safeties his shortcomings really emerge. We saw it last year v JMU and again just now v JMU. We got lucky JMU did not pick off two or three more.


That said, our D played great, we hustled and hit hard every second of the game,  and our offense was almost good enough to win. I think we'll make a run in the playoffs this year if we stay healthy.

I agree this is a good team, however today I saw several overthrown balls, and several times where Carbone just didn't see the defender. Better coaching could mitigate that. This conference has several great QBs with Trevor Knight, Flacco, Rhode Island's starter (forget the name but he didn't play against us). We have a lot of improvement to do in that area. The rest of the team is there. Get a QB and this is a semi-final level team.

Looking at the box score, we out gained them on the ground and through the air. Similar to December where we outgained them on the ground, but shot ourselves in the foot with penalties and turnovers.


Big picture, today went as good as it could have gone for us in a loss. We lost by 3 points on the road to the #3 team in the country on their homecoming with them coming off of a bye. That's as good of a quality loss as you can get.

Delaware just beat Towson, and Towson still has games against Elon, Maine, and JMU remaning. JMU also still has Towson on the schedule. We still have a shot at the CAA co-championship despite this loss. Take the bye, beat up on Delaware, and let's see what happens.

At the end of the day. Nothing changes. We all knew that this game was going to be tough and likely to be a loss.

Lets take our Bye, regroup and beat Delaware at home. Our chances for the playoffs are intact. If we win the last two games we are in and that's all we want.

JMU is JMU. An elite program that we can aspire to be some day. We were really close today... but time to move on!

The good: JMU nation

The sellout crowd in Bridgeforth Stadium is serving its role today as the 12th man for JMU. Stony Brook has been forced into four false-start calls, likely due to the drowning noises of the Dukes’ faithful.

Two false start calls in the same drive kept Stony Brook out of the red zone, and a false start on a field goal attempt pushed the Seawolves’ special teams unit out of scoring range, keeping at least three points off the board.

The ugly: Carbone’s interception

Early in the first quarter, Carbone led the Seawolves deep into enemy territory. After taking the snap on the 25-yard line, Carbone had a tight end break free on a seam route in the middle of the field. Instead of throwing it quick and right between the numbers, Carbone led him too far into the middle of the field and floated an interception to JMU junior safety Adam Smith.

This was a momentum-killer for Stony Brook, as it could’ve taken an early lead on the road. Carbone has had his issues inside Bridgeforth — throwing five picks in the 2017 postseason — and this was yet another mistake by the seasoned quarterback.



they did refer to us as the seahawks at least twice- the third time the announcer caught himself mid-sentence.  and then the final graphic as the end said seahawks.  ::)
