SBU Men's Basketball / Forum Rules
« on: March 08, 2023, 07:00:25 pm »
Introduction & General Agreement:

User Agreement for Posting:

By posting a message on this site, you agree to abide by these rules and policies and to risk a temporary or permanent suspension (ban) of privileges to post for violating them. Ignorance is not an acceptable excuse for violations. Posts that attempt to get around a rule, or are suspected as such by board monintors, are also considered to be violations.

Forum Purpose & General Guidelines

The purpose of the SBUFan Forum is to provide a place for fans, followers, and anyone else interested in Stony Brook Athletics to post information, share ideas, ask questions, and have discussions about the programs. For anyone who decides to post messages that are of a controversial in nature, and for those people who may reply in response to those posts, please show your respect for others who may have a difference in opinion by not using derogatory, belittling, and profane language when you post. It is our intent to both provide a reasonably free and open forum for all and to protect the real-world identity and privacy of those who wish to maintain online anonymity.

With these rules and guidelines, our intent is to reduce or eliminate abusive, inflammatory, obscene, libelous, illegal, and otherwise problematic posts and to enhance the experience for site visitors by maximizing amount of worthwhile material made available for viewing.

Visitors and fans from other teams in the NCAA are welcomed to post, as long as the abide by the same rules

Forum Rules & Policies

Abusive or Obscene Language
 Language that is abusive or obscene will result in editing of the message or removal of the post. If the message is flagrantly abusive, contains obscene language, or is otherwise blatantly unacceptable, the user may be also have posting privileges temporarily (in the Brig) or permanently suspended (Ban).

    Posts that contain or evidence the following types of content are specifically prohibited:

        'Adult' content
        Obscene material
        Nudity or por*nography
        Material that infringes others' intellectual property or other proprietary rights
        Piracy, hacking, viruses, worms, or ware*Z
        Commercial banner advertisements or revenue-generating links
        Any otherwise illegal content
        Links to, or images from, a site containing material outlined anywhere in these restrictions
Any material deemed offensive or inappropriate by the SBUFan moderators, in its sole discretion, after you have been informed that SBUFan deems the material unacceptable. This might include posting of confidential information not released to the general public.

Flaming (Attacking) Other Users
Try not to personalize. Debate is certainly encouraged, but flaming (i.e., attacking someone personally) is not allowed. For example, saying "any idiot knows that isn't true" is flaming (because the person was just called an idiot), while saying "I passionately disagree" is not, even though it is rather emotionally charged.

Material from Other Web Sites
    Assume that anything appearing on another web site is copyrighted (which is generally the case). As a rule, do not copy and paste/post this material. However, copyrighted information can be referenced with a summary, brief quoted excerpts, and/or links. Messages or parts of messages written by someone else should not be posted without permission of the original author unless you are "quoting" what they posted. In any case, messages that includes the work of others should be posted such that the author and his/her information can be identified.

    A specific case of interest to many is the press release (or what appears to be one). Items such as a game story, an announcement of new coach's hiring, and the like appearing on a team web site must be treated as copyrighted material. You can handle them as described above.

Sports Wagering/Gambling References
References to legal or illegal sports wagering are not permitted. The NCAA states that sports wagering has "the potential to undermine the integrity of sports contests and jeopardizes the welfare of student-athletes and the intercollegiate athletics community." All such references on the Forums will not be tolerated. They include, but are not limited to, printing, listing, linking, and/or creating of “point-spread” or “line” information or solicitation or acceptance of sports bets. Posts containing such items will be edited or deleted. Repeated violations will result in the banning of the offender from the Forums. Visitors, and especially student-athletes, are encouraged to read the NCAA's page on sports wagering, from which the quote above was taken. This page has many useful links and resources on the subject.

Advertising Products or Other Sites
    Do not post commercial material on the Forum or use posts to advertise your or your friend's web site or product. This includes using your "signature" line as an ad. Particularly annoying are posts about a "great web site" that are made (with no acknowledgement, of course) by someone associated with that web site. Also do not post questions about a camp, clinic, tournament, etc. with which you are associated in the hope of generating free advertising for it. "Guerrilla marketing" is not permitted.

Management Decisions Are Final

    This is our house. When you use these forums, you are the guest and we serve as host, and you are to act accordingly. Do not insult your host or you are toast. If there is a dispute between participants on the boards, the Forum administrators/moderators will arbitrate. In all cases, the administrators reserve the right to make the final call, and those decisions are not open to further discussion.

Protection of Privacy
    No personal information about other people that could be considered private should be posted on the site without permission of the person whom the information is about. This will often apply to coaching job openings before they are announced publicly. People's e-mail addresses and telephone numbers should almost never be posted.

Your Legal Liability

    There are laws, both civil and criminal, against certain forms of speech, if proved in court, such as libel, defamation of character, harassment, and threats. Accusations of this sort, however, are legal allegations that are best decided by a court of law; we do not arbitrarily make that determination. It is, of course, the prerogative of any poster who feels any laws have been violated to pursue legal action. Posters are responsible for what they post and should realize there may be potentially serious consequences for illegal behavior.
Guidelines & Good Practices

Stay on Topic
    All of the forums (except for the "The Red Zone" and "Around Stony Brook") are topic specific. Please post only on the appropriate forum. Off-topic items appearing on any of the forums may, without warning or explanation, be moved to a different forum, merged into a more appropriate thread, or simply deleted.

Exercise Good Judgment
 Avoid posting what might be called private, personal information. Just because you know something doesn't mean you have the right to tell the world. Recognize that some information should be communicated only by the source or someone close to him/her/it.

Make Your Subject Line Clear
    The subject line of a post, particularly one that starts a new thread (topic), should clearly reflect its content. This is extremely helpful to visitors browsing the forums. If you are asking a question in the post, there should be a question mark in the subject line. If the content of the message IS the subject line and the message is blank, add (nm) for "no message" at the end of subject.

Avoid Starting New Threads Unnecessarily
    Do not start a new thread (i.e., a top-level post or new topic) when one on that subject already exists on first page of a forum. If, for example, people have posted scores and commentary about an upcoming game, don't jump the gun at the end of the game by starting a new topic that only reports the final score. When possible, try to reply to an existing post. Help maximize the content available to visitors by introducing new topics judiciously.

Avoid Commercials for Yourself or Others

Avoid making disguised posts about yourself or your friends or your children, especially those promoting what a wonderful player you or they are. People see through these posts, and you generally end up looking rather foolish. Let the actions on the field speak for themselves.
Heed Warnings from Moderators
    Follow the rules. This is not a democracy, and, if you violate the approved use policy, your posts will be deleted. Serious or repeated violations of forum policy are even more likely to result temporary or permanent suspension of posting privileges. Actions taken by forum administrators, such as the removal of the post, should be taken as a warning even if an official warning is not issued.

Thank You,
SBUFan Mods

Around Stony Brook U... / Making SB better- Idea Thread 2.0
« on: February 07, 2023, 09:08:14 am »
it's been 10 years.  so it's time.  let's recap what progress we have made.

college town: no movement.  i suppose some new shops on 25a were added, but i dont think it's moved the needle.  PJ bus was a good idea but im not sure if its still running nor who uses it.

quads: i was on campus over the weekend.  while it's light years better than 25 years ago, nothing much has moved in the last 10.  still mud and broken concrete, rusty tanks, puddles, garbage, dirt, weeds everywhere.  yes i walked all around campus i always do. 

hall naming: some progress.  noble hall, chavez, tubman, for example.

school naming: no progress.

tower: the wang center went up 20 years ago but i think the question is- does that make the U recognizable, where HS students see it and automatically think SBU.  i think no.

building aesthetics- not a ton of movement, but it was about time they renovated the Union (and the Bridge).  so that's a victory.  (this excludes new construction; i'm limiting this to existing buildings.)

NYC presence: none, but we are a finalist for the governor's island opportunity.  that'd be great.

housing crisis: no progress, though, you could argue increased enrollment is a good thing of course

student hierarchy / honors dorms: none

tradition: still none, in fact, may have retreated much

legends: still very little, still losing time

rivalry: what we may have built with UMBC and vermont and SUNYs is maybe gone, maybe even JMU.  though, things are looking up for the CAA, whether it's W&M, Del, Towson, hof, etc.

student activities: abysmal.  maybe improved but still abysmal. 

weekends: worse than abysmal.  so no movement.  the reviews are in. 

fight song: we have one, but most really dont know it or care.  so no real progress.

athletics: bball made the jump, but that's not the point.  the point is bball shouldve made the jump 4-5 times already.  so it's a huge letdown.  so is football.  wlax has been an outperformer, maybe even wbball.  baseball does it's usual, i think, which is good to great.

athletics attendance: still awful, but perhaps improved.  a bit.  am i wrong?  i dont believe in build it and they will come.  the proof is in.

student misery/disaffection: still at a level unparalleled with pretty much any other university on earth. 

*   *   *

please feel free to add/remove/expand.  the point is- we are losing time- and ground- to our peers.  this is very damaging to the university and holds us back from being truly great among the likes of UNC, UCLA, UVa, mich, texas, etc.

on the brighter side, the academic reputation and accolades continue to roll in.  big victories in- keeping tuition down, lion's share of state funding (comparatively), flagship designation, diversity initiatives, economic mobility, etc. have continued to garner attention.  USNWR climb.  added a great seal.  new pharma school.  beer at athletics.  there's been much construction on campus which is good.  javits reno underway.  new food halls are amazing.  athletic facilities have grown and will continue to.  conference jump.  the new pres at least mentioned student life and athletics, showed up to a game, etc.

« on: September 01, 2020, 06:54:07 pm »
Assuming there even will be a 2021 season, the 2021 roster is up:

some observations-

FR recruits (all showed): thompson, alfano, dolciotto, sommer, alnwick, daly, reda, sato, morschauser, conk, henry

new FR recruits: giovinco, maynard

transfers in: burns (so/UML), pallonetti (fr/UMd)

returning 5th years: bollinger, CVG, hebert, dugan, trenkle, matsuoka, pickel, white (RS SR), grippe

departing covid SRs: dowd, boehm, hannigan, shephard, reiter (RS SR)

other departed: gallagher, celauro, callan, walsh, stiso, leblanc, lucas, morris, culley

-leblanc is now the student manager (first of it's kind)
-kaschalk had that nasty ACL last year; hope he's ok
-coach kelly isnt on the staff (was he a grad asst?), wasnt listed last year but there was a presser on it
-looks like harrell and stewart redshirted last year

in summary, getting our covid-seniors back- leaders like bollinger, haun, matsuoka, trenkle- is a huge victory, though it may have cost us some underclassmen.  looks like there's so much talent now should be tough to get on.
