I had very high hopes for Ochefu when Bolas recruited him. He has High Major genes in his DNA, but he never materialized. Was that on the coaches, would he have progressed better had he gone to Duke, Virginia, NC etc.... ?

When we're ahead of schools like Buffalo, Penn State, Maryland, and BC, I'm not going to sit here and argue with the ranking.


I also wouldn't choose to not send my kid to SBU based on the assertion that the teachers "won't speak English." What a ridiculous thing to say.

It's not a ridiculous thing to say. If you cant understand the professor speaking what good is it. This is not something we all don't already know. The language barrier between students and professor is concerning. I know many, and I mean many students who turned away from SB because of this issue.

Stony Brook University has been ranked 45th among all U.S. universities, according to QS World University Rankings. In addition, the university was 15 among public universities nationwide and named the top public university in New York.

I read the article. They are #45 because of international ethnicity.  Say it ain't so. My son is an honor student at SCCC is is looking to finish his undergraduate degree either at SB or Binghamton.  I told him go with Binghamton for his business degree. He wont fit well with 45% of asians in his class rooms at Stony Brook

So anything other that a white majority is unacceptable at a NY university? The 45% Asians may make him a better and more focused student

I would tell him to attend whichever has the best Business program or the best reputation...

I dont agree with it. Stony Brook high percentage of international diversity students have everything to do with money. There are a ton of SUNY schools in NYS where he can attend and get the same business degree and not sit in a classroom with professors who cant speak English or students who wont even look at you.

This is the reason for the very low student fans base at our football and basketball games. There's nothing the athletic dept can do to make 1000 or more Asians attend football games.

Do you guys remember when we brought in John Kinder a grad transfer from Syracuse to be our QB it was a disaster. QB is the toughest position to bring in a player to play for only one year.

I do. He was the back up QB for Syracuse. He sucked.

Ceesay is off to Campbellsville of the NAIA.

https://twitter.com/HassanCeesay/status/1264359178988064775?s=20

Ceesay was SB Bench guy, not a starter. Why is he leaving .

WOW. Garcia transferred to Georgia. Keep that bench warm Garcia!!!

He'll play plenty. He was a top level AE player. He's not Yeboah level, but he'll definitely play in the SEC and get decent minutes.

I have my doubts.  Yeboah is a 6'6" wing who can shoot.  Garcia is strictly an inside player at 6'4".  I think he is going to find it very hard playing against kids who are more athletic and jump higher than him who are also 4 inches taller.  He is an AE level talent.

My thoughts exactly Salty!! Garcia will be eaten alive in the SEC.

Garciaís the player I feel the least for. Heís the one who said himself that he knew leaving could trigger a domino effect, and he still did it anyway. And he left to a school that has the made the NCAA Tournament less recently than Stony Brook.

Is this really what you wanted, guys?

I think we need to look more at the underlying condition, rather than look at individual players. Something is going on in this BB organizing, and it isn't good. My guess is it has everything to do with Geno, but I cant confirm this. None the less, SH needs to do something, and do it fast. Unfortunately, NYS is broke and SB cant afford to buy out Geno contract.

The first mistake SB did was give Geno a long term contract out of the gate without any proven wins. How can they do that. Do year to year and see what he can do in the playoffs before locking a HC in. Dumb!!!!

ill keep saying it- the formula we had before wasnt working.  maybe this new one will.

True. A change was definitely needed. Let's see what happens with a team full of Juco transfers. Maybe they can get together somewhere and start practicing, under the radar.

We just signed Juwan White, a 6'2" combo guard from Butler CC. Immediately eligible.

We won him over a slew of D2 schools including SW Oklahoma State, Minnesota State, Georgia Southwestern, Arkansas Monticello, and Texas A&M International.

Well we better beat out Nobody State, Nobody Tech, and Little Sisters of the poor A&M for kids....
So, Ford is fighting over D-2 kids to try and make a full team?? WOW!!!!

I am reading between the lines, they all said they want to better themselves. Other then Olaniyi and MAYBE Garcia they will all be making lateral moves. If they believed in the coach they would have stayed. All you need is 8 good players to have a chance. SB doesn't fire coaches so we will be screwed unless the new president cares and makes some changes

I agree with you. Garcia and Olaniyi will be forgotten if they wind up on a Power 5 team. This has more to do with SB then anything else, and no. SB wont fire Ford for his poor performance and his unacceptable performance on the court and with his players.

About the kind of schools I expected would be after Elijah. All good landing spots.

 Why not just finish up at stony brook. it's not like he will ever make it in the NBA. Something smells rotten to me.


Average home attendance for the 2019 season ...

B1G: 12,691
SEC: 11,527
ACC: 10,912
Big East: 9,999




Bundesliga: 4,189

NBA G League: 2,465

AE: 1,693

Might be his only remaining shot at playing big-time basketball. Why not go for it?

Elijah will be a bench players at any of the power schools. He has zero chance of going to the NBA. This cant be about saying you played for Kentucky for 1 season and kept the bench warm. Why not just finish up at SB and get a really good Diploma.

This is about something else. What doesnt come out in the wash will come out in the rinse.

California State Schools have canceled sports for the upcoming Fall, 2020 season.  This means no football for Fresno State, San Diego State and San Jose State, in Mountain West Conference.   This is a huge decision.  Basketball still a question mark for these schools"

This is bad. New York, Chicago will follow suit. guaranteed..
