SBU Men's Basketball / Re: Game 17: at Vermont, 1/8 7pm

This is just personal conjecture, but my theory is that Boals was way more of a player’s coach than Geno. Just the vibe I get from him not only here, but back at Ohio as well, is that he’s more of a friend than a coach. So I can totally envision how, after starting 17-3, they were all taking it easy.

I think they both have/had players' respect.  No idea on your conjecture, but I think Ford is much more gregarious than Boals, and he's been through the rodeo many times before and knows how to be a head coach, whereas Boals had to learn on the job at SBU.  I like Geno's rotations, play calling and demeanor, and I just don't want SBU to be a launching pad for another coaching jump come the end of this year.

I'm actually not too worried about this. Ford left Kent State for the wrong job at Bradley and stalled his very bright career for five years. I think he's going to be very selective in taking another job. I think we'll have him for awhile.

I've unfortunately only caught a handful of games this year, but I'm so happy to see Olaniyi find his stroke from three. He's an all-conference guy that has lifted his play to an entirely different level this year.

Coach Ford is the best interview we've had at stony brook. He's not the best on social media, but he's great in front of the camera.

What a performance by the men yesterday! A little bummed that Avery or Moffett couldn't beat Alfond, but if you get beat running 23:40 for a 8k you just have to tip your hat.

Absolutely blown away by Luke Coulters performance yesterday. Stony Brook's 800 meter school record holder finished 4th at cross country conference championships running 24:04 for 8k?! VERY excited to see what Coulter does in indoor and outdoor track. And thats whats so impressive about mens team's performance. A lot of these guys are middle distance runners. Coulter, Becker, Kelly, Malanaphy, and Smyth I suspect would all consider themselves middle distance runners. These guys are going to score a lot of points for Stony Brook in indoor and outdoor. And the freshman Evan Brennan is having a monster freshmen season. He was a good recruit for Andy Ronan, but he's made a massive leap in just his first couple of months in college running.

Very excited about these guys.

I believe chanenchuk's father also founded the LI Express club team that Sommer plays for.

I put this together and thought some of you might find it interesting. Note that a lot of the expenses related to lacrosse are from the cost of scholarships. This is why the private schools spend a lot of money here and the Ivy spend very little (Ivy league school don't offer scholarships). Give it a look and let me know what you think.

I put together a little a data visualization on FBS football spending and thought some of you might find it interesting. Check out the link below.

Oh yeah I forgot they added Hilaire. Hopefully this is just an oversight, or maybe she has to finish classes over the summer at SHU before she graduate and transfer?

I have not personally spoke with Wellner but my LI connections who are CLOSE with him tell me he is pursuing opportunities else where. Personally DO NOT see him returning. But that is second hand.

I don't like saying this, but I would be very underwhelmed if Wellner were hired. An assistant coach on a staff that was just let go is not what I'm looking for. He may very well be a great coach, but I don't think the iron is exactly hot for him after this past season.

Also Danowski would need to win at Stony Brook if he's going to get the Duke job when when his father retires. If he, or anybody really, can come in and win enough to be considered for an ACC coaching job, then I'll be very happy. Remember, the last guy hired to take over an ACC program was a national runner up.

Matt Danowski would certainly win the news cycle and create some hype for the program.
