GUYSSSS. I must be honest. I missed the entire game. Forgot it was today. Instead I watched the Villanova vs. Hofstra @ Nassau Col.

This is amazing. Beat our old coach. I think the team just went out to prove me wrong because I said things are not the same after he left.

Ok. I knew we were gonna be top 10. but TOP2. Now that's madness.

I think I'm gonna have to catch some games this season. Every year it gets better


They are so good that they are now officially a Revenue Sport:

"For the first time in program history, tickets will be sold for Stony Brook's home games in LaValle Stadium. More ticket information will be made available soon."

WOW!

Also, it seems like Albany MLAX is Elite on the Men's side also. Great for the America East Conference

Pikiell's team just pulled a huge upset against Big East #15 Seton Hall Pirates. Arguably his biggest career win. I'm happy for him. But not gonna lie that I miss him running this program and the rest of the team (Dougher!!!) :( . It hasn't felt the same every since.

I'm hoping that we can play well against them. I don't think a win is realistic. But just keep it close boys!

Lets go Seawolves

It's going to be JMU vs. NDSU for all the marbles.

Ofcourse, gotta root for the CAA! GO JMU!

Great read!

Lets keep growing!

Start out by conquering your own house first and then expand the marketing efforts to the rest of Long Island. You know why I go to games? Because I did while I was a student and I became a fan of College Football thanks to the Seawolves (Adam Peck, Chris Creamer, myself... we were the kids that used to facepaint or paint letters into our chest). That's why I'm willing to make that drive east every Saturday. But for me (alum) to follow now I had to cultivate the following before graduating. If you don't grab the attention of the students and turn them into fans before they graduate... Those alums will never come back for game

We have to build the next generation of Seawolves fanatics... and that starts ON CAMPUS. Nothing else will work as good as cultivating a good student and then alumni fandom. Those alumni will draw their parents, cousins, friends, and next thing you know you are packing the house and need further expansion.

It's not that difficult. Its just lack of effort. Plain and simple. There should be a USG-Athletics committe of student and administrators with the sole purpose of fostering student following and spirit.

Forget about the suitcase campus... forget about the lack of parties. Those are secondary issues. The primary and sole issue remains lack of marketing and unified effort between the Athletics department and other areas of the University.

The only marketing you see on campus right now is "Home of the Stony Brook Seawolves" banners in every other light pole. What the heck does that do for it if the students don't feel it?

Heck. Make a student club of promoters...

Or you know what. Make it college-credit course MKT101 and make the final project: Draw 1000 students to every game. LOL


maybe just my guess... but i dont think we will get significant crowds via train.  which means if no students show up, you're sitting in traffic on nicholls.  the more attendance we get, the bigger those delays become.

the other option is to get students to games.  i argue that not all fans are equal.  there is something about the student attendee that makes the college football atmosphere.  it's the reason why pundits use the term "hostile atmosphere".

but we can't get students to games if they arent even on campus.  why arent they?  we arent addressing the real issue here.

PS since we're talking bona fides here, yes i was there with a homemade piece of wooden fence (from leftovers building lofts in the dorms) before there was even a LaValle Stadium.  ;D

Chairman. Even with the students that go home on weekends there are at the very least 3000-5000 students left on campus. Not everyone goes home. Trust me. Stony Brook is more residential now than ever. Especially with the new fancy student dorms and the other activities that students can enjoy on their spare time (like the Rec center). Walk past the Rec Center on game time and you see plenty of students exercising which is a good thing (but not on gametime. lol)

Overall, I'm very satisfied of what the Seawolves achieved this season. As a fan we always want more wins and more success. But within the realm of reality we overachieved for the 2017 season. In August if you would've told me that we were going to finish 10-3 I would've called you crazy.

All the predictions from the "football guys in the media" made our outlook grim.

This 2017 is special for several reasons IMHO:

(1) it placed and solidified Stony Brook in the map as a top tier CAA program. This should hopefully do wonders for our program in terms of recruiting and getting more wins. We may have entered the CAA several years ago. But we finally know what it takes to be at the top

(2) It made us nationally relevant again within the FCS. This is also part of brand building. If we make the playoffs in the next few years there is no doubt that the committee will look at us in a better light and give us better seeding. (Look at UNH how they got by an easy UCA 2nd round Victory)

(3) It gives us the positive momentum that demonstrate to our fans that it is indeed worth investing in Stony Brook football. Hopefully with the Indoor Practice Facility we can only grow faster and stronger. Hopefully the local community and students also turn out to games in larger numbers

Big Big year. Very happy as a fan.

LETS GO SEAWOLVES!!!

Express your feelings. Let em all out.

Now is the appropriate time to bash the coach if you want to...

Its tough to watch. It been a good year. But we have no response for a team like JMU. They are good on every facet of the game. Our offense has been brutally outmatched.
