Conference and Athletics / Re: Athletic Facility Masterplan

I can definitely see how the indoor facility will help make women's lax a perennial top 5 team (assuming Spallina stays in place) by energizing team practices and helping with recruiting, and the men a regular top 15 team for the same reasons.

Excellent analysis as usual Checkmate. I'm not as optimistic as you are, but I like the way you think. As long as it's competitive I'll be ok with the outcome. As long as we beat them in March.
Anthony Lamb's struggles have really gone under the radar. 23% from three! 38% shooting! He's been horribly inefficient this year. He's still scoring decently because he takes so many shots (second most in the conference). He's supposed to be their key threat but if we double him, then what? Stef Smith has been their best shooter this year.

Should have gone to the NBA!!

Lamb didnt go to the NBA because he wasnt getting any interest from teams and new he would not have been drafted. Smart move to finish up on his education and then try again. Chances are, Lamb will follow the same path as Warney. G league for a couple of years and will play in the European or Asain basketball league.
Agee with Hammer. The last player in the NBA of any note with Lamb’s size and skill set was Dan Majerle, and that was back in the 90s. There are too many taller players now who can shoot threes. I don’t know if Lamb will make it even in the G league.

Maybe Stony Brook can land Charlie Strong.

Hardly. “Strong has lasted only three seasons at his past two coaching jobs.” Might as well save the money and keep Priore.

College athletics (including football) are only a means to an end, meaning a better student experience and ultimately, a better overall academic experience. Which of us wouldn't prefer to have a degree from Johns Hopkins or MIT, even though they have basically no athletics tradition.  Although SB definitely needs a new HC, the $1 million buyout (assuming that's correct) is better spent on academics.

Priore has proven he can be successful at a lower level. A good outcome would be him taking a D2 or D3 position without exercising the last two years of his contract at SB. Not likely, but would be a win/win.

Chuck, you suck.

First drive play calls:
Run up the middle
False start
Run up the middle
Run up the middle
Punt

Goddamnit.
I attended my first game over 10 years ago with my wife. Priore had been coach for a few years and it was against Albany. After what seemed like endless run-up-the-middle plays she turned to me and said "I hate those plays. They're so boring." Interesting how little has changed over all that time.

The last time an AEC player was drafted from a team still in the conference was 1993 (Hartford) when the conference was stronger than it is today. If Warney didn't make it, I don't see Lamb making it.

TRGV was picked 4th out of 9 teams in the WAC.

TCC was picked 8th of 13 in the Southland.

Both conferences seem to be rated a little lower than AE.
The last two cupcake wins don’t mean much. A win today would.

It's been 11 years since SB has offered 63 scholarships under Coach P.  and we've seen the best that the program can achieve under him. In fact, his best seasons were thanks to Hofstra cancelling its program and their two running backs having to scramble to find a team. Right now the only team worse than SB in the CAA is Rhode Island...and SB barely squeaked by them, at home. The program should not be in this position. IMO Shawn made a poor decision to extend Priore for a long as he did, and it's unlikely he will be bought out. The football program is where the men's lacrosse was under Nagle, and everyone knew that had to change.

it's possible- some might look at the JMU game, as it was high profile and against a top team.

but if we made it- we'd certainly limp in, and i'd expect a first/second round exit.  the CAA is strong enough to really get past most first round games, and we've played a few good games this year, and football is such that injuries, film, and weather make late fall games very different than september games.
Not this year. The CAA has only one team in the top 15 and SBU is in the bottom tier of the conference.

Just heard on Caafb that if we win both games we can still make a case to be entered into the playoffs
And I’ll bet somebody on Caafb is smoking the wacky weed. By at least one measure (Sagarin) there are nine teams in the CAA better than SBU. Delaware is not one of them, so a win over them will be meaningless to the selection committee.

Most people who comment on this site would love to see Coach P and his staff fired for one reason or another so let’s 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 football—which fans are right to expect for a high profile university like SBU—it would have happened by now. It’s become clear we have seen the best he can do for this program. It’s time to aim higher.

If Heilbron was pressured by Stanley (which I have doubts about), that’s a red mark against Stanley. Basic Management 101 teaches that you don’t 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.
