I'm 90% sure there won't be a college football season this year, and I'm about 60% sure there won't be an NFL season this year. Probably not the worst thing as we'd absolutely SUCK this year.

I'm hopeful that things can return to normal before then. But its surely not looking like it. Definitely we need to keep our student-athletes, student body, and fans safe before we talk about College Football.

It seems like the entire 2020 year will be washed away by covid-19.

Stony Brook University ranked 45th among all US universities

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.

40 ND
41 Cal Irvine
42 Rutgers
43 Case Western
44 Illinois Chicago
45 SBU
46 Buffalo
47 Penn State
48 BC
49 Maryland
50 UVa

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...

Iím getting fed up with most of the student body anyways. Too many of them would rather play League of Legends or watch anime instead of attending a collegiate sports event, itís infuriating.

Yup, that is correct. I'm sorry but I fault the State. We all know why SBU has a very high percentage of Asians in this school, MONEY... It all comes down to the Dollar. Asians could care less about our American sports. They come here from Asia, not to hang out and watch football, basketball, Lax. They come here to learn our technology and take it back to their own country and start a business.

I am on the verge of not caring about this University anymore. I used to work for the Hospital, in the HSC building and I would see the many Asians students going into the School of Medicine. There are thousands. That doesnt include how many Asians are enrolled in the Engineering depts. I know first hand how this University caters to the Foreign students over our own students here in NY. I cant support this school anymore and it's athletics dept.


Lets not get all radicalized either.

Asian students like the rest of our student body work really hard to enter our school and they study really hard while they are here. At the end of the day the primary purpose of Stony Brook University (or any Research University) is to provide an education while also investing in research & development.

Sports and our student athletes are of great importance in the American higher education model, but it is not the top priority either and it shouldn't be the #1 priority.

A school should choose it's prospective students based on academic merit (and in some cases other qualities to improve social mobility in underrepresented groups) and it shouldn't discriminate based on national-origin especially when the reality is that everyday the state of New York provides less and less direct funding to our "public" universities. For the most part Stony Brook is a private school - the state contributes less than 15% of the yearly budget to run the operations of the school.

Without getting too political I have to say that your "come here to learn our technology and take it back" sounds like a phrase taken from a Trump speech. As a professional that works in the technology sector I tell you that technology moves far too quickly making it worthless to copy something and emulate somewhere else. The key to technological success is innovation - constantly creating new products and being the first mover. Those that copy will always be a step behind and cannot conquer the market. So have the peace of mind that no other country in this world has an innovation ecosystem so extensive and powerful as Silicon Valley.

If you want to keep the United States in the forefront of technology then the key to success is increasing access to higher education (reducing such costs by increasing the funding of our schools using taxes) and maintaining our focus on scientific research and development. These things need to get funded using our public tax dollars. Lets make sure we ask of our government that we spend more in science & technology, not less. Next time you hear someone complaining about their high federal taxes make sure you let them know how lowering them can hurt the well-being of this wonderful country

Its over

COVID-19 has officially ruined the month of March, and probably the entire spring.

.... and if the market continues to react in such a way... It may ruin a lot of lives also.


F-U COVID-19!

I'll root for Hofstra. Screw it. I did my MBA there. I guess I caln root for them now.

I'm so tired and frustrated with this Stony Brook basketball program. UMBC, Vermont, Albany all can pull surprise. We choke year after year. Its really hard spending so much energy on a program that gives nothing back to the fans.

Oh well. Gotta wait for Football season now

couldn't attend today's game. From the comments it looks like it was real bad out there.

I know there is no playoff this year but I hope we show up against Albany and hopefully close the season with a big win!

I agree we need a change. Coach P is too comfortable and won't do what is required to be a top-tier team in the CAA

That's a welcome addition. We need more of that. I wish instead of plaza malls they would actually build street facing in a more "main street" approach. The University should work with the LIRR and the community to get a couple of additional overpasses across the railroad to improve access to 25A from the main campus
