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

I am done with this site until people realize this is SBU and not an FBS School

Campi. We appreciate having you here bringing us all your insider info.

weve done the math on this forum before.  happy to hear corrections as these are mere shots in the dark.

lavalle holds 12.3k
assume 500 parents/friends
4k locals, donors
500 alums
500 staff, faculty, admin, athletics, etc
maybe 500 students

and that's 6000.  with conservative estimates (meaning, larger #s than i really think in reality).

that leaves 6300 seats.  we all know they count tickets, not bodies.

options remaining to fill those seats:
-the over 10k students living on/around campus (not even there by thursday night)
-more locals sitting in traffic on nicholls road when they can instead watch B1G games on national TV

From this compilation, the number that jumps out at you is "500 students." Yikes. I get that its a commuter school but the school has over 26,000 students.

Stony Brook feels like a commuter school due to the lack of school spirit. But in reality its actually a fairly large residential campus, the largest in the SUNY system. Over 10,000 students live on campus and 83% of first-year students reside on campus. That is enormous potential if you put a conscious effort to tap the student body.

Those are the potential future fans that will follow the program and donate to the school forever if they build an attachment over the four years. But it seems like athletic department at SBU is ran as a silo with little coordination with the rest of the University

Itís our SNY debut! Not to mention the first game where alcohol is being sold at LaValle.

I know we almost got 10,000 people last time, but Iíd be shocked if we came even close this week. The students are pissed off and boycotting football because they moved the Homecoming tailgate away from the big lot to host a BBQ there instead.

I can see this affecting the entire seasonís attendance numbers because the kids are unbelievably angry. They want to watch attendance numbers crash and burn and so many of them are flat out refusing to ever attend a football game again. Victor Ochi tweeted about it too and got plenty of support.

I'm late to this. But finally. Something is happening... even if its just chaos.

Something has to change and I'm glad the students are finally doing something. Victor Ochi is right, the CC and Liberty days where the best days for students to have fun outside and also enjoy a game. The the University slowly started marginalizing them shutting out frat tailgates, charging $$$ to park at the main lot, followed by not letting anyone out at halftime, etc, etc.

I was a student back then (2007-2012) and we actually were able to build a consistent group of student supporters who came out every game (a lot of credit goes to our student defacto leader back then - Chris Creamer). For us it was fun to be there. But these oppressive decisions have come in to boost short term financial gains at the expense of long-term student support (and potentially bigger financial gain).

Don't get me wrong. I like some of the initiatives such as the beergarden and Beer/wine sold at the stadium. But that shouldn't be at the expense of pre-game/half-time tailgating. Don't isolate the folks that don't have the desire or money to pay for beers when they have their own alcohol. Let the students bring their frat tailgates to the lot with DJs and whatever they want. Just let them be and let them go crazy.

Have a few security guards and 5 ambulances nearby in case things go bad... That's cheaper and more effective than oppressing and sucking money from the students and long-time fans

I swear, I though in 2012 than when we beat Colgate (homecoming) and saw the students rush the field we were building something great. The following week we beat ARMY at West Point. Ever since then we have been deconstructing the College football atmosphere at Stony Brook.

Boy. These guys are blowing us out 27-0 now

On a good note - Its nice to see our very own Dani (WBB Alumn) reporting for Stadium TV. Probably the only highlight so far

The school has wasted no time with the promotions, because Sep. 14 vs Wagner ads are already up on the TVs where the Bryant ones used to play.

That is just awesome to hear! Finally, Finally!!!

I would also hope that on gameday they broadcast the SNY feed on campus TVs. They MUST!

Crowd doesn't look bad, but doesn't look particularly impressive either. What in the world do we have to do in order to get people to show up for games here??
Thursday evening games are rough..
9600 people

9,652 is the most people weíve got for a non-homecoming game. Ninth most attended in program history. Sure felt like it to me. We got to keep it up, though.

Which as a commuter school is more in line with what I expected and is honestly fantastic. Especially given the opponent. Fact is that weekday games aren't as bad for SBU as they would be for most schools since we have such a large commuter population. Something to think about should the MAC come calling one day.

I think the fact that the stadium was expanded last year and everyone is more spread out now makes the attendance seem like it is less than it is. I really hope we can get 14k out for the JMU game. It's homecoming against what could very well be the #1 team in the country. If that can't get us ATLEAST 14k then lol.

Let's keep in mind that Stony Brook isn't really a commuter school. at least not by definition. It's the largest residential campus in the SUNY system with over 10,000 residents. The challenge is keeping the residents on campus on weekends and engaged in student life
