SBU Football / Re: 2019 Football Season
« on: November 12, 2019, 09:37:24 pm »
Most people who comment on this site would love to see Coach P and his staff fired for one reason or another so letís say we ask the players what they think about the following; has Coach P and his staff prepared you to play each game every week, if you had the opportunity knowing what you know now would you still come to SBU and play for Coach P, in your opinion what do think of the offense and defense play calling, as a student how can we get your fellow students to come to a home game, how much in your opinion has all the injuries played with the season on the brink of not making the playoffs.
The reality is that if Coach P had the ability to take this program to the elite level of FCS footballówhich fans are right to expect for a high profile university like SBUóit would have happened by now. Itís become clear we have seen the best he can do for this program. Itís time to aim higher.

If Heilbron was pressured by Stanley (which I have doubts about), thatís a red mark against Stanley. Basic Management 101 teaches that you donít take the hiring/firing decisions from a supposedly senior and trusted member of your leadership team (Heilbron), unless you have serious questions about his/her judgment.

The AD misjudged Priore with the contract extension. This program has achieved its ceiling under the current regime. Barring making it at least to the national semifinals (HIGHLY unlikely), I expect Priore to go the way of Nagle at the end of his contract.

Attendance might improve but not enough to avoid the program being a huge financial drain. Think UMass.

The attendance is shameful. Thatís all I have to say. Absolutely embarrassing. Iím so ashamed of this student base.
This is why FBS football would not be successful here. The football fan base and appetite for college football simply isnít present at SBU, and wonít ever be.

How many former SB players are on active NFL rosters? And how many have been drafted. I think I know the answer, 0. If I am wrong please correct me.

I brought this us because I see a ton of players from all CAA schools that are currently playing in the NFL, not just practice squad players, on active rosters.

Coach P has all the tools and resources to do they same thing except for one, the know how. He doesnt have what it takes to recruit or take a good athlete and turn him into a great athlete with NFL aspirations. Just saying.

Todays little tid bit for the day...
That's a valid point. There are 157 FCS players active on NFL rosters. It's noteworthy that even mighty Wagner College has two.

The discussion here isnít about any one player. Itís about the direction of the program (past, present, future) under the HC and his assistants.

To make the postseason we'll need to win out. Lose another game and if we sneak in it'll be on the bubble as probably the last team in if at all. Even if we do get in we've likely seen the ceiling for what this program can accomplish unfortunately. Sad to say.
Just like menís lacrosse hit its ceiling under Nagle, football has done the same under Priore. And that ceiling simply isnít high enough for a university with the resources and potential that SBU has. The middle of the CAA pack isnít good enough anymore.

Aside from the Villanova win in the last second, all of SBUís other wins have come against teams that are a combined 4-26 this season. Think about that. This program should be further along after all these years under the same coach.

Villanova is the only good win so far. The close loss to JMU won't help one bit. Seven wins and they're out. Eight wins leaves a chance. Win the rest of the way and they're in.

O.K.  I think you guys have sufficiently (And correctly) covered the importance of this loss, and I agree that the play-calling was atrocious!!  I'm still steaming over the series in UNH territory where the Seawolves started with two running plays to the short side of the field (in effect giving UNH the sideline as another defender) and then ran up the middle on third down--YIKES!!  I'd like to see Fields use his running talents more often: perhaps a few QB draws or some deception with a boot-leg once in awhile.  That said, I think Tyquell has earned his stripes as a reliable accurate passer, and we should be willing to take more advantage of that--not running into the line when the box is stacked!!

On another topic:  what the hell is going on with Isaiah White?  He seems to be healthy.  He's been in on special teams for just about every kickoff by the opponent for the past two games. and has been running up and down the sidelines with some obvious agility.  Yet, after that initial play fumble against JMU he has been MIA on offense.  Is this Coach P's retribution for that fumble???  If so, enough already; it's a bit overkill by now.  If not, than what????
Good summary sbugold. Unless they get to 8 wins with a win over a top 10 team, I donít see much playoff hope.

Impressed with his full court play. He showed some Lebron-style moves, maybe just a half step slower...but thatís still pretty darn good.

Nobody expects a win but keeping it within two scores would be an achievement.

Nice article on SB's punter. Could be an NFL prospect in a couple of years.

The total shellacking last night by a good (but not great) team along with lowly Albany beating Bryant by more than SB could does not bode well for the season. This year may be yet another disappointing one for fans.

Moving to FBS so we can lose by a better score isnít the answer. Having a coaching staff that can take the program to an FCS elite level, is.
