I agree Delaware is not going to be a walk in the park for us.

We're not even going to be favored I imagine, but after last year I really want this one and the team does too. Additionally, a win pretty much makes us locks for the playoff (committees tend to prefer teams with big wins over teams with bad losses).

Its going to be a tough game no doubt. I also expect a lot of Delaware fans.

I hope we show up in numbers and back up our seawolves!

Looking at some of the latest bracketology predictions:

https://herosports.com/fcs/football-playoff-predictions-jmu-delaware-weber-bzbz

I say this weekend's game is a MUST win. If we don't beat Delaware, we won't have a single great win on our resume. Rhode Island is a decent win, and UNH doesn't look like a total cupcake win after Saturday's result, but if we don't beat Delaware, we would have gotten beat by every great team we've played this season. Villanova and Richmond are no longer the great wins we once thought they were, and we didn't look at all competitive against Air Force. Beating Albany at year's end won't be enough. If we don't beat Delaware on Saturday, this team is sitting home come Thanksgiving weekend. If anything, it would be better to beat Delaware and lose to Albany than the opposite. At least the former shows the committee we can beat a good team. The must win nature of this game should be all that Coach P needs to motivate this team. Go SB!!

WOW. Hero Sports is prety hard on our beloved Seawolves. " It was time to move a CAA team out of the bracket, and Stony Brook was the only logical choice here. I'm on record saying I think the Seawolves are a playoff-caliber team, but it's tough to deny that, as things lay right now, SBU is the least deserving CAA team."

I cant argue here. Stony Brook is not a threat with Carbone behind the line!!! Bottom line. Put a half decent QB in and SB would be seeded around 5.

SB has just one win against a team with a winning record. They have to beat Delaware and Albany to merit a playoff spot.

Quote
But Delaware has also been inconsistent, as its last six football games indicate.

Delaware had 421 total yards against Richmond, 319 against Elon and 340 against Towson.

But the Blue Hens also managed just 152 at North Dakota State, 177 at New Hampshire and 268 in Saturday’s 21-16 win at Albany.

Of that, a major chunk came on the 11-play, 83-yard drive that ended with Kani Kane’s decisive 14-yard touchdown run with 18 seconds left as Delaware managed to barely thwart Albany’s upset bid.

Coach Danny Rocco had suggested after Saturday’s game that Delaware was perhaps “a little bit too predictable” at times. In explaining that further Monday, Rocco said Delaware stayed fairly basic with its offensive strategy.

“I didn’t feel we really blocked very well when you come right down to it,” Rocco said of Saturday's game. “I thought they beat us to the punch a little bit, getting off the ball. I thought they were a little more physical at the point of attack and I thought they played with a little more passion on defense than we did on offense.

“Those three things are not a formula for success when you are wanting to establish a run game.”

Windy weather made passing the football a bit more difficult at Albany, with 56 of Pat Kehoe’s 174 yards throwing coming on that final series.

Wide receiver Jamie Jarmon, who has missed three games with a leg injury, is likely to miss a fourth this week.

The cool (44 degrees) and windy conditions should favor the team with the stronger ground game. Us!  At the same time, hope our fans show up for this very important game. (Bring extra clothing as it might seem a good bit colder than 44 degrees).

Hoping for a good turnout. The community will turnout as usual, but the students I worry about. Our student attendance has absolutely cratered over the years and that's really unfortunate.

Very windy tomorrow. Not expecting a big turnout. AS far as the student section is concerned, there will be more mice running around in the bleacher than students.

started off with a nice balanced drive and the bone threw a deep out off the back foot.  the free safety read the whole pattern and picked it.  but it was one of those interceptions that serves as a 2nd down punt.

but then we got a 3 and out so that's good.

Fortunate break for Delaware off of our turnover. Replay showed that was clearly a fumble. Missed opportunity. Though Carbone shouldn't have thrown the INT. Oh well.

Post by: VA_Seawolf on November 10, 2018, 01:37:55 pm
Not a great first quarter, but not a horrible one. We're moving the ball fairly well and are in this. Some adjustments will need to be made at the half, but we're fine for now.


In other games around the country, Towson leads Elon 14-3 at the half. This is good for us as Elon must drop a game in order for us to finish with at least a share of the title. Youngstown State also leads Northern Iowa 14-7 at the half. That would be big since with a loss, UNI's at-large odds weaken as they'd finish 6-5 at best. Would the committee place a 6-5 Valley team in the postseason this year? They have before. In any case a YSU win would be good for us.

So many missed opportunities in the first half, though despite all that, that last drive gave us a chance for a touchdown, and we came out of it with a field goal and a 3-0 lead. Gotta take what we can get. The half time adjustments will decide this game.

We have the ball up 17-3 with three minutes left. I'm giving credit to the defense on this one. What an effort!!

Solid win today. Calling it with 2:20 left. Only watched 4th Q, but defense sterling as usual. I think I could have scored on that Liotine TD; what a hole.

Post by: VA_Seawolf on November 10, 2018, 03:51:53 pm
I love how on that final drive we brought pressure. Most teams just drop 8 guys and give the QB all day. I love how we kept doing what was working.

Incredible performance by the defense. We held them to fewer points than NDSU did!! UD's lowest point total of the season.

Hello top 10!!

Solid win! We had a nice crowd at LaValle despite the cold and windy conditions. There were plenty of Blue Hen fans as well. As others have noted on this forum, the student body presence at the game was virtually nil. It”s unfortunate.

If we beat Albany and Elon beats Maine next weekend, we'll win at least a share of the CAA title. The AQ and likely playoff seed will come down to tie breakers, but we're in the mix for both.

also.  we had a really nice mix of runs and passes today.  they really do set each other up the way priore calls them. 

i heard on the broadcast that we've won 9 straight at home, which makes us 4-0 at home this year.  good stuff.  and a nice day for the seniors.  well done.

now beat the great pains. GO SB

Isaiah White should be back next season, after being academically ineligible this year.  But, the kid to watch out for is R-Fr Ty'son Lawton.  He is really something special, and I think he'll have some significant impact next season.

Hey, in regards to Playoffs. Do you guys think we get a home game if we win next week?

I'm pretty sure we are in the playoffs at this point. But I would love to get another home game!!

Post by: VA_Seawolf on November 11, 2018, 01:02:53 pm
We've had a couple great years, so I worry about this program falling off of a cliff next season. Then again, we always seem to beat a ranked team or two every year and there's enough talent in this program to remain competitive. I'll stick with my 7 win expectation. As long as we have good linemen in the program I wouldn't worry too much. Being a ground and pound team may hurt us in getting QB talent into the program, but it helps getting great linemen into the program and I'd rather have that tbh.

A little undersized but Alex Indelicato looks pretty good too https://www.hudl.com/video/3/10106015/59dac75db3d32c0820ab4d23

We always have loads of talent at RB. As good as Gowins and Liotine have been this year, I'm not concerned about the rb position going forward.

The 2017/2018 Recruiting Classes were really top shelf so expect many of these kids to be on the field next year. In addition we have 6 really good players committed for the 2019 class already and expect at least a half dozen transfers to come in. Also there are many returning players that played this year so I expect SBU to contend just like the last two years.

Let's enjoy the rest of this season and at least wait till spring ball before we write off the 2019 season
