SBU Football / Re: 2019 Commitments
« on: Today at 11:22:21 am »
SBU got a big time commitment when one of the top kickers in New Jersey Angelo Guglielmello of St. Joe's Montvale verbally committed. I would not be surprised if he isn't our starting PK as a true freshmen in 2019

Awesome!!

FCS HC that leave for the FBS usually go to lower end programs as a HC or a bigger program as a Offense or Defense Coordinator. Coach P is in his late 50's so I'm not sure that he would want to do that he likes having total control with a free rein so the only reason I see him leaving is for a huge payday or to retire (I can see coaching for10 more years) which I don't see happening.

I agree, and i also believe coach P will finish out his coaching years at SB. I just don't see SB letting coach P go because he isn't winning the conference year after year. It's hard to fire someone if he keeps the team in the middle of the conference. I think that's where SB will ultimately finish this year and quite possibly years to come.

AS long as JMU stays in the FCS they will always be at the top of the conference or very close to it every year and ELON is turning into an FCS powerhouse with their recruiting. Ad in Delaware as the next team to be reloading, that puts us at around 3rd place in the conference. Enough to get you an invite into the playoffs every year, essentially sealing the deal for a new, coach P contract in the offseason.  This is how I see it playing out...

We're doing great right now, and I've enjoyed the hell out of this season, especially these last two games, but I cannot forget about those four consecutive sub .500 seasons. Including two years ago where we picked up two great wins over ranked playoff teams, but lost to Sacred Heart at home, and then lost the final four games of the year to finish 5-6. We were 5-2 that season only to lose out the rest of the way. We've got two VERY good teams coming up, and then end the year with a rivalry game @Albany. I doubt we lose them all, but it wouldn't be the first time...

For the record, I think we should extend Coach P given how this season has gone so far, but let's see how we end the season before unloading the wheelbarrow full of money on his doorstep. Yesterday's win was only our second win of the year over a team with a winning record(Bryant is the other).

We have to see how Coach P handles JMU before extending any contract. If SB wins out, I would only do a year to year extension.

Despite this season record Carbone numbers is nothing to get excited about. Yes, he has some good games offensively, but overall his passing game is nothing to get excited about.
Why do I say that? it's because SB will always have a difficult time finding a high caliber QB like Flako as long as they know coach P is at the helm. SB is considered a pound and ground team and high school kids know this.

SB had 460 total yards in this game but Carbone had 6 competitions for 99 yards. Not good. If Liotine or Gowins go down because of injuries SB would have to rely heavily on Carbone passing game.

Like you say, we've seen this before and let's hope history doesn't repeat itself with losing the last 3 games.  Regardless if SB makes the playoffs or not coach P will get an extension of at least one year. I just hope it isn't a 5 year extension or a new 5 to 7-year contract.

What a beatdown last night. The atmosphere was great!!!

I think people started leaving because the game honestly got a bit boring after the 1st half. We completely outmatched Rhode Island.

I don't know if there were 12731 fans out there last night. It's hard to count now with the Beergarden and Touchdown Club filled to the brim. All I can say though is that LaValle strikes the perfect balance between family friendly and adult friendly. They really have done a great job.

The only thing I can ask is maybe they can move the Touchdown/Beergarden to the Away side of the stadium in front of the pine trees so that our donors get a better view of the game. I think it may work. What you guys think?

I agree. You can't see the field with the Giant scoreboard in your view. Behind the visitors side would work.

Conference and Athletics / Re: Conference Realignment Rumors

SH son plays JV football with my younger boy at WM, and i asked him this question yesterday at the game. I asked Shawn. When does he see SB moving up to the FBS. His answer, "Let's win our conference first before we talk about the FBS" That's a big change from the first couple of years as AD for SB, but it's the right answer. How can we talk about moving up to the FBS when SB is only a middle of the road CAA team and we cant beat the upper CAA teams. Towson destroyed SB and JMU most likely will too. Beat JMU and keep games close against the likes of NDSU, SDSU. JSU, SHU etc.. and then maybe, just maybe we can talk FBS aspirations down the road.

I mean... if you've got to cut something I guess it's better to cut a program that hadn't admitted any students yet and was brand new, but it's still not the best thing in the world. It is what it is. Infinite desires, but finite resources.

Now let's go expand that football stadium  ;D ;D

LOL> Yeh, thats exactly what  Gov. Cuomo wants to hear after this cut.

Hammer went to the Ward Melville game yesterday your son looked good I thought he was done for the year.

My son is #73. He was on the sidelines. He left after the first half because of a family function we had last night. He had ACL surgery almost 2 weels ago now.

I was thinking the blowout at Air Force could have been an outlier. This game shows it wasn’t. This team is not a playoff team.


This is what happens when SB plays a good team.

The silver lining in all of this is it strengthens the argument to fire Coach P  ;D

You think so??? I don't. As much as I would love to see that, it won't happen. Not this year.

SB could lose out and coach P will still be back next season..

I was there, and even I have no idea what the Hell just happened...

Put that Tom Flacco kid in the Walter Payton conversation though. He's legit.

I hate to say it but Rhode Island will roll this team this year.
