SBU Football / Re: G7: UNH
« on: October 16, 2019, 06:30:24 am »
I saw the SBU 85-yard kickoff return v UNH that was called back due to replay-review late in Saturday night’s game. That cost us the game (IMHO).

"The Wildcats tacked on a 42-yard field goal to go up 20-14 with 5:07 to play and Jean Constant – the graduate transfer from Bryant who was twice named all-American at kick returner – took the ensuing kickoff 86 yards to inside the Wildcats 5; however UNH coach Ricky Santos saw the replay on the scoreboard and asked for a review of the play. Constant, it turned out, made a sharp cut back at the Seawolves’ 22 that caused him to slip. He tried to put his hand down to prevent his knee from touching, but game officials ruled his knee had touched. “I felt like I got my hand down but they said my knee touched, Constant said. “It’s a little disappointing. . . . Field position can change the game.”

“That was a blow,” Priore said. “I’m going to assume they were right about the replay. If the replay was wrong I’m sure we’ll get a formal apology.”
UNH forced the Seawolves to punt on that possession and the Wildcats were able to run the clock out on Stony Brook." -  Newsday

My suggestion is to NOT  show a replay of a great SBU play on the SBU scoreboard while the opposing coach can request an official video review. Is that crazy?

Because the games are now televised on SNY you will see most replays. In the past, when SB games weren't televised just streamed on the internet they didnt have replays... Thats how the cookie crumbles.

This game should not have gone down to one play to determine the outcome. SB played like crap, thats all there is to it. SB defense cant stop the run with two of their starting lineman out. The team is decimated with injuries this year..

Isaiah White has an Angle injury and even though Ty’Son Lawton looked really good he also is bothered by an Ankle injury. SBU is hoping to have Kamara back. Kyle Nunez also got banged up last night. A player that they have really missed is Finneran who broke his Wrist before the season began and has not played at all this season.

I di see Nunez go down but he came back in shortly thereafter.

I'd venture to say there must be at least 15 good players on this team who are either out because of injuries or battered up and not doing well

Thought it was a very competitive game last night, it’s too bad hardly anybody was there to watch it.  I’m surprised to see no mention of the lack of attendance.  Does Stonybrook have no fan base?  A 6:00 Saturday night game,  beautiful fall weather and a nationally ranked Stonybrook team playing a 2-0 CAA New Hampshire team.  The announced attendance of 4,900 was obviously inflated, couldn’t have been 3,000 people at the game.  Pretty embarrassing when you have a beautiful stadium and a really good football program and nobody cares.

I and most of the crew were there, but you are right. The crowd was pathetic and I did not see any student fans in their section.

Get used to it.  Coach P calls the shots on Offense. He sucks as a coach and things will never change just as long as SB keeps giving this guy contract extensions.

Thought the board would enjoy seeing Jameel as a force with his new team in South Korea.  Check out the corn rolls!!

He looks great. Maybe he still has another shot making the NBA

Both Athlon and Street & Smith's picked Stony Brook to finish fourth, behind Vermont (obviously), Albany and UMBC.

That's some meaty bulletin board fodder for the team.

With Hartford graduating their starters, picking the these Top 4 is a no-brainer.  It's too early to pick the ordering of them though, IMO.

Add CBB Central to the list who have us fourth. They have Olaniyi as an all-conference first teamer.

FYI, no word yet on whether or not Policelli will be eligible this season.

Interesting.  Not sure how UA outranks us out of the gate, but I guess everyone is treating the Yeboah loss as a big one.  Surprised too that Policelli decision still in limbo, with season starting in less than a month.  Maybe that's a good sign, then again, maybe not.

New coach. New players equal uncertainty until proven otherwise.

I have absolutely no clue how this year will turn out.

In the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 seasons, the NCAA concluded that selling alcohol reduced the amount of unruly behavior at sports games by large margins.

Is that because purchasing high priced beer  one at a time under a more-or- less supervised and rather slow procedure results in less problem drinking than gulping down cheap beer/mixed drinks at a furious pace  in the parking lot tailgate before the game? (Obviously there can be issues of fan alcohol-related fan unruliness under either procedure...and folks may still pound at the tailgate and top off with the slow procedure ...but there may be something to that theory.)

LOL. I like your assessment!

Campi, Do you know the extenct of Kmara injury.

Sam Kamara’s injury really could have been a fame changer. JMU ran the ball way too well and without him to stuff the run they were able to move the ball downfield a lot through the run.

When did Kamara get injured? Do we know what is wrong with him and when will he return.

Lets get HYPE!!! Game is tomorrow!! What do you all think we will expect tomorrow?! This is a huge game and if we can beat JMU we can take that momentum through the rest of the season!

I would love to see an upset fellas but I am a realist. JMU by 17.

We struggled against am 0-3 URI and got blasted by Utah State. At this stage of the game, SB cant competes against better performers. JMU proved they can when they lost to Virgina.

I just hope Coach P has some tricks up his sleeve and dont try to muscle the RB up the gut.  JMU is going to expect Fields to run as well. Show them something new and maybe catch JMU on their heels..

We already have our scholarship QB Drew Guttieri for the 2020 class I cannot see SBU bringing in a 2nd one unless it’s a walk-on

That could change if a better QB shows interest in SB!

What do we need to prepare for this game tho? Like did we suffer any injuries? And the main thing is that we gotta stay positive and optimistic. If we come into this game already thinking of the outcome we will lose it. We just gotta hit the run game hard to start and drive the ball down. We also need to make tackles on D or else they will run all over us.


Don't think this is a good plan. Here are the rushing stats against JMU for the (5) games this season:
WVU - 34 rushing yards, 1.4 average
St. Francis - 79 rushing yards, 2.7 average
Morgan State - 79 rushing yards, 2.3 average
Chattanooga - 84 rushing yards, 2.9 average
Elon - 33 rushing yards, 1.4 average

I think you will likely have more yards than that, simply because your QB will get some yards via running on intended pass plays. But I doubt you all go in with a game plan of slam it up the middle. JMU's defensive weakness right now is secondary and pass rush. Not saying you all can't compete, but in terms of a matchup, JMU will likely fair better against you than someone who throws more (say Towson). I think JMU would love to just fight it in the trenches with you.

Thanks for the stats, JMUFan. The problem here is SB is a pound and ground team, up the gut style of offense. If we cant move JMU defensive line, Tyquel Fields will have to stick with throwing the ball, and that might not be a bad thing. Our HC, Chuck Priore just loves to run. If he sticks with his stubborn approach, we will lose by 21. If goes with more of an option style of play, ie; Fields can either run or pass we stand a much better chance. Our D line is stout. Our CBs will get burnt if JMU plays anywhere as Utah State played.. This should be a fun game and the Weather looks good for Football.

Coach P sucks. He should have prepared for the on side kick. Whatever.
