Another long shot, but I'd love to bring Matt Danowski back to Long Island.

So how good is this guy Giddens really?  He sat on the bench for a mediocre Alabama team that was blown out by Northeastern.  In his third year, he never played more than 16 minutes in a game and he only got into 14 games out of the 34 that Alabama played.  I'm sure he'll contribute, but I would caution against overrating him.

He's also four years into his college career and still has a higher fouls called per 40 minutes rate than big Jeff, 7.7  to 6.6 for Otchere.

I do think he'll be good though. It almost seems like Vermont is trying to keep up with Stony Brook with our athletic bigs in Otchere and Gueye.

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.

It's possible he's applying for a hardship waiver, but I believe his family lives in the syracuse area. If that's the case, it's hard to believe it will go through

That's awesome Campi. I appreciate you sharing that information with the public. If it weren't for you we wouldn't know what is going on behind closed doors with this school. No transparency whatsoever.  Other schools, big or small are forever talking about who's coming or who's leaving. This school keeps these things all wrapped up . Whatever!!

I don't really blame the school as much as I blame Newsday. Most information on college programs comes from local news outlets, but Newsday only ever does the bare minimum of reporting on Stony Brook.

That said, I do think Coach P intentionally keeps things pretty close to the vest.

I'm guessing they landed one of the two transfers.

I believe that his only other offer was from Boston University.

Rivals says Oklahoma State offered too

It looks like Oklahoma State offered back when he was sophomore. Seems his recruitment slowed down a bit since and doubt that was still on the table.

I like him. Good size and skill. Looks a little stiff for lack of a better word, but still gets above the rim with ease. I think he could be a nice pieice.

Thanks for updates TheGreatK! Any word on how the coaching staff is filling out? Can we start an campaign to bring you on or can we not afford you?

Around Stony Brook U... / Re: Academic Rankings
« on: April 30, 2019, 09:42:30 am »
calling all alums!!!

tomorrow 4/30 is SBU's first ever annual giving day.  we have achieved a record-high #80 in the USN&WR (up 17 spots from last year)

and a remarkable #32 among public schools https://news.stonybrook.edu/university/stony-brook-achieves-highest-ever-us-news-ranking/

one of the criteria for the rankings is % of alums that give.  so even if you give $5, or $10, or millions, you count the same.  the same as jim simons, the same as glenn dubin, etc.

please participate so we can send the message to albany that SBU is in fact the undisputed flagship of the 62 campus SUNY system.

spread the word. -CotB

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.

Any rumors on how Ford is going to fill out the rest of the staff?

I can't reveal source, but heard very reliably that Akwasi is not coming back.  Unknown if he's transferring or going pro.  Given this and the departure of Long and Moor, and the signings of 2 new recruits, that should leave us with 2 schollys for upcoming season.  Personally, I'd load up on 2 Grad transfers; there's enough of them out there.

Huge bummer. Was hoping no word this far into the process was a good sign regarding Yeboah.

Bryan Weber follows and liked this tweet from Nic Thomas 6' 2" guard from Norfolk St. who averaged 14 pts per game for Norfolk State last year. It's nice to get guys who have proven they can produce at the D1 level.

I'm really high on Tyler Stephenson Moore. I'll be surprised if he's not on the all rookie team next season.

Thatís really interesting.  I see more from Gueye but Iím just watching both on YouTube highlight film.  Why are you high on Moore?  He looks a bit slow to me.  Iíd love to be wrong!

I'm very intrigued by Gueye, but I'm guessing he's going to need a season of grooming at the D1 level.

I see Moore as a cross between Olaniyi and Latimer. I actually think he looks really athletic; Look at how easily he gets above the rim. Offensively I don't expect much off the dribble, but I think he'll come in and be solid 3 and D guy right away.
