“King, a running backs coach, was enticed. It was his favorite type of football: ground and pound. Now, as he enters his sixth year coaching Stony Brook running backs...“

Seems the offense will follow the same pattern as the past few years...three runs up the middle and punt.

The coaching staff has to be smarter than that. Fields on his own is a dynamic dual threat - taking after the skill sets you see in the NFL right now of Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray and Lamar Jackson – and their backs this year don't seem as explosive as the past.

That Cuomo vote was super F'd. One of the main reasons why I'll never vote for him ever in anything. LaValle would be FBS-ready had that expansion happened. Not that I expect Cuomo to even know what FBS means.

Sucks that Dubin got caught with his pants down. I'm sure the athletics department wouldn't mind if he made a hefty anonymous donation, although I don't think he has any incentive to do that right now.

I can't be the only one sorta disappointed with Heilbron? He's made little progress with the athletic department. Aside from the Indoor Facility he's not been worth his salt. What else has he done? Stony Brook is still stranded in the FCS and America East! He talks a big game about taking Stony Brook to the next level... but it's all talk, no action.

Yes, New York sucks. SUNY is awful for operating dozens of useless shithole colleges upstate for no reason, I get that it hamstrings him financially. But that's his job to stick up for his department and demand more funding at the expense of those places. What else is new now that Heilbron is here?

Priore’s conservative nature killed him in 2019 and it’s going to kill him if he doesn’t stop. Letting Fields sit while Carbone threw together a mediocre senior season was a horrible mistake. Fields had a good year as a first year starter but he should have had even more experience.

The damn SUNY tag again. Adding insult to injury.

Oh wow. Might take a minute to get used to.

I wanted to say I love the athlete profiles they've been doing. Gives us fans more insight into the teams and players, and I hope it's exciting for the players themselves.

Adam Rubin has been GREAT with that. An amazing high-profile hire for the athletic department, he's done nothing but great things for Stony Brook on the job.

Now, if only he could exterminate the school's commuter population and force students to put their asses in bleachers...

I definitely found out via Twitter: https://twitter.com/StonyBrookFB/status/1312477965578498049?s=20

As great as being on the active roster, it's still not getting an actual snap. I hate fighting this uphill battle where just getting on an active roster is considered some sort of "accomplishment".

You want to know what's an actual accomplishment? FCS Illinois State RB James Robinson being the leading ROTY candidate. Or Indiana State TE Robert Tonyan catching three TDs on Monday Night Football. Not just making it to an active roster and then not even seeing a snap. I'm so tired of this program's lack of actual NFL production when you have other schools in the CAA actually doing something of their alumni.

I would be so overjoyed if the athletic department is just overexaggerating their "financial problems" in order to gain even more money from people and lead to actual constructive changes.

The problem is the same: commuters, and residents who go home on the weekend. If you are either of those types of people, you are no friend of mine. Perhaps having a train station directly on campus was a bad thing all along. And the school keeps admitting these types of loser students.

Commuters: these are likely the poorest students in the entire student body. Whenever I ask people why they commute, the answer is always the same: money. Many say that even if the school opened up 15 new dorm buildings, they still would never dorm because they could never afford it. It’s probably too politically incorrect nowadays to say that the school should stop accepting these poor students, but there’s no other way around it: by being too poor to live on or near campus, you are killing the atmosphere of the school.

Residents who go home on the weekend: you people are just losers. You don’t even have the excuse of being poor because you already pay for a dorm room. You are just a legal 18-22 year old adult who is too weak to live on your own that you need to go home to mommy and daddy on the weekend. You’re just a child. You can’t go 4 measly months away from your parents? You need to ditch every weekend to go home and see them? Loser. What ever happened to independence? Going to college to escape their grasp? How mentally weak are you? This behavior is despicable.

Other things: the lack of a traditional college town for students to retreat to that is easily walkable from campus. Until you find a way to physically move Port Jefferson, count that out. This is where I rant about the Stony Brook townspeople. Whining about your property values. IDGAF about your property values! The fact that it’s been 60 years since this university was created and there’s no “Main Street” or bar row or giant gala of businesses catered to the college makes me sick! Radical revolution needs to happen. The school needs to tell the townies to F off and take the initiative to build this on its own.

Malatras can also eat a fat one. He is a bad, bad man, and he is a graduate of “SUNY Empire State”, whatever the hell that is. Doesn’t Sound like he will have our interests in his mind. Again this school is restricted by “SUNY”. A cursed four letter word that solely oppressed SBU by restricting its full potential. Cuomo has not done a single good thing for SBU since he arrived. He is evil and must be defeated.

Can't forget to mention the huge number of STEM kids as well. They're "smart", great, well they have the social skills of a brick and an aversion to anything related to sex or drugs. And their virgin asses probably add little to no social value to the school as well.

**** New York State and **** SUNY! Taking away 46 million from us in our most crucial time when public schools are most important. I’m embarrassed that SUNY is so consistently awful in terms of funding. A disgrace!

I wonder how LIU feels having added hockey right before their finances went kaput.

The NEC game.

Now, why we had to go on the road to play Wagner last year, I still don’t know.

NJIT isn’t as shitty academically as I thought they were. At 11,000 they’re still a small school, but our 27,000 just dwarfs everyone else.

I don’t know what the procedure to leave conferences is like, but I hope that Shawn is doing the hard work behind the scenes.

If I’m being optimistic, maybe this opens the door for one of the schools (aka us) to GTFO of the America East
