SBU Football / Re: 2018 Football

If you live on LI and rely on Newsday there is some info you should know Optimum is now owned by Altice so Newsday is now a stand alone. What that means is if you currently have access to Newsday on line because you had Optimum you will now have to pay separately to keep Newsday. Also Newsday is now being printed by the NY Times so late games won't make the next day paper thus forcing you to have on line access.

I refuse to pay a penny to read that rag paper .. They are the most Bias paper I have ever read..

Looks like he is looking to make the pros and can't do much buried on the Michigan depth chart.  This means he'll be fired up to show folks what he can do. A  win-win for us. (Some injury issues at Michigan but reports are he is fully recovered).

The fact that a guy with this pedigree and talent would head to Stony Brook speaks volumes about SB's reputation - the opportunity for exposure (Will Tye, for example) is just part of SB's current attraction.

Absolutely! Plenty of guys have been drafted in the early rounds from the FCS too in recent years. Even Division 2 kids are being drafted in the second round now, so being in a league like the CAA, and having games against prominent teams like JMU will do wonders for him.

My only "concern" is does he stick around for 2019 if he plays well this year? Carbone is a senior and I'd expect at least some drop off between him and whoever the QB in 2019 is. Coach P might be gone too, so if he plays well this year, I wouldn't expect him back in 2019. Great for us in either case. I hope this is finally the guy who gets drafted out of SBU.

Totally agree. My only concern is with Carbone accuracy. Any good QB can make a receiver look good. Unfortunately, Carbone is not one of those accurate QB. Just saying. Joshua Zamot, is a freshman sitting in the wings and I have high hopes for this kid. Hopefully he can continue where he left off in High school....

No one for the 2019 class can sign until December 22 (I believe) 2018 you can verbally commit but can't sign until then

When the 2019 classes become official we will then see how many of these verbal commits stay with Elon and how many get flipped to FBS Schools

Good point Campi.. I'll try and check in from time to time to see who stays and who goes..

Another team that gets Star players and Power 5 transfers is JSU. They recently got a 4 star graduate LB from Kentucky who could have been a starter for Alabama and has NFL aspirations..

Tomorrow is a big day at SBU as it's their annual 7 on 7 competition and many very good teams from the tri state will be in attendance and then once that is completed many future SBU recruits will make their cay to the campus to show off their talents in the prospect camp this is the third one and there will be three more to follow

According to Brian McLaughlin. Hero Sports, tweeted, ElON Just signed 5 hot recruits and 3 had FBS offers from big schools, and more to come... If ELON, who is still new to the FBS can garnish star players, why cant SB football do this. It all comes down to coaching. Chuck Priore needs to change things up with his staff and find some big names assistants who can recruit .

I follow some FCS fan page groups on FB and and people are all over the country talking about their FCS teams and news that relate to the FCS. Nobody every talks or brings up SB football.I am the only one who will bring up some topics about SB football. But, they will talk about every other CAA team . This is a shame. If SB wants to make a name for themselves in football then they need to start making noise and get loud. This will only happen with a coaching change and bring in new staff.. Follow ELON approach coach P if you want to get recognized!!!!!!

Elon is FCS lol. I think you meant new to the CAA? Or perhaps new to actually having a team with a pulse....

The thing with our recruiting this year will be this; Coach P hasn't had his contract renewed as this truly is a make or break season for him. In my mind, we'd need another playoff appearance (7-8 wins) in order to retain him since the schedule is much harder and a lot of our talent has graduated. This year will be a real test for Coach P and his staff. Until we know if we're renewing his contract or not, we're going to have a hard time recruiting players since no kid is going to want to commit to a school where they don't even know who the coach will be.

And while we're on the subject of recruiting, JMU has gotten several 3* commits and FBS transfers into their program. Their current team could probably win CUSA this year if they were FBS, so they're positioned to run this conference for a long time. Only way that changes is if an ACC school poaches their coach.

Typo, Elon is FCS not FBS. I think you know that already.

I agree with you that star players wont take chance on SB if they dont know if their HC will be around next season or not.

SB had an easy schedule last year. This year not so much so. I am not expecting only one loss again for us in the CAA. We could go easily go 6-5 or 5-6. and miss the playoffs. Is that enough to renew coach P contract? Time will tell. Something inside my gut tells me SB can go 1-10 and coach P contract will still be renewed.

Star players who have multiple FBS offers from Power Conferences keep on rolling for ELON.. It all comes down to recruiting and the coaches who reach out to these athletes.

These rankings are only ever decent for very elite players. If you're not an elite FBS program pulling in top 300 recruits, I don't think it's worth your time looking into these things. Also the recruiting websites don't pay any attention to new york recruits. ESPN doesn't have a single NY high school player evaluated for the class of 19.

Jeremy Rucket is from Lindenhurst and was a 4 star TE recruited by Ohio State . I watched him play last season and he is the real deal. But for the most part, yeah. The NE is not a breading grounds for recruits.

Some good stuff to check out. Look where JMU, Harvard and NDSU rank .. ELON is on this list to but all the way at the bottom. SB is not listed.

SBU Men's Basketball / Re: 2018-19 schedule

Don't mind the easier schedule- still have some really good teams on the schedule so it will still be a test.

I do not think all of those losses at the start of the year were helpful in building confidence. I think Coach Boals decided to rein in the difficulty. Bottom line no team from the AE is getting an at-large bid.

I don't buy that at all. We had a weak team last year. We went 7-9 in the AE and lost to Norfolk St.

Conversely however, we nearly pulled off upsets against Uconn and Providence, and got a huge win against Rutgers which was the bright spot of the season. A national TV game against Michigan State was great too, and we stayed in that game for a while. Those things can't happen if we play Cupcake U, Cupcake State, Cupcake A&M, and Cupcake Tech during the non conference schedule. I'll always advocate for the tougher schedule. The AE may never put a team in the tournament as an at-large, but we're definitely not getting in as an at-large with a weak schedule. There are zero downsides to a tough OOC like we played last year. The team just needs to get better.

I agree VA. I am quite disappointed in in OOC thus far. I am not sure if coach Boals thought last year schedule was to tough on his team or if he had a tough time scheduling teams from the power 5 conf this year. Either way, or SOS will be horrible come seeding time if SB wins the AE title and we get the auto bid. That is how i see it when you have a soft OOC schedule.

Conference and Athletics / Re: Shawn Heilbron
« on: July 01, 2018, 05:26:57 pm »
I would rather put money into football and the basketball programs that's where the major press coverage is .  Our other sports all should get their share . Soccer he is talking a complete new venue of 3500 seats so I have heard .   This could be interesting since I get the impression that FBS football is closer than we think for the Seawolves .  Our old rivals in the Big South Coastal Carolina and Liberty are both FBS now .  Coastal almost beat Arkansas last season losing by a field goal .

We are very close to FBS, what we need is a conference invite. I don't believe we should go the Liberty/Umass/NMSU route of being an FBS Independent, so we'll need to find a conference that will invite us. Best odds of that are the MAC, or a reconfigured CUSA with a more eastern tilt.

VASeawolf, Why do you say we are close. As much as I would love to see SB make that jump to FBS, I just dont see it anytime soon. SB would have make LaValle stadium to handle 15K seats, Min. and sell 15K tickets for each home game, if not then SB is on the hook to pay the difference. Correct me if i am wrong but i do believe that is one of the requirements from the NCAA. We do about 7K on average now.

Hofstra couldn't even handle the CAA in Football and was forced to drop it because of financial reasons. If I am not mistaken, there is a hiring freeze currently in affect and a cutback in $$$$ for athletics. How in the world can Shawn Heilbron pool a rabbit out of his hat and make the leap to FBS?? Unless they magically find a ton of money or if some big time booster steps forward, i just dont see how SB can ever make this fly.
