If only this could happen to Stony Brook.

Deion could have publicly stated he wanted to coach here and Heilbron would have still kept Priore.

The problem is the same: commuters, and residents who go home on the weekend. If you are either of those types of people, you are no friend of mine. Perhaps having a train station directly on campus was a bad thing all along. And the school keeps admitting these types of loser students.

Commuters: these are likely the poorest students in the entire student body. Whenever I ask people why they commute, the answer is always the same: money. Many say that even if the school opened up 15 new dorm buildings, they still would never dorm because they could never afford it. It’s probably too politically incorrect nowadays to say that the school should stop accepting these poor students, but there’s no other way around it: by being too poor to live on or near campus, you are killing the atmosphere of the school.

Residents who go home on the weekend: you people are just losers. You don’t even have the excuse of being poor because you already pay for a dorm room. You are just a legal 18-22 year old adult who is too weak to live on your own that you need to go home to mommy and daddy on the weekend. You’re just a child. You can’t go 4 measly months away from your parents? You need to ditch every weekend to go home and see them? Loser. What ever happened to independence? Going to college to escape their grasp? How mentally weak are you? This behavior is despicable.

Other things: the lack of a traditional college town for students to retreat to that is easily walkable from campus. Until you find a way to physically move Port Jefferson, count that out. This is where I rant about the Stony Brook townspeople. Whining about your property values. IDGAF about your property values! The fact that it’s been 60 years since this university was created and there’s no “Main Street” or bar row or giant gala of businesses catered to the college makes me sick! Radical revolution needs to happen. The school needs to tell the townies to F off and take the initiative to build this on its own.

Malatras can also eat a fat one. He is a bad, bad man, and he is a graduate of “SUNY Empire State”, whatever the hell that is. Doesn’t Sound like he will have our interests in his mind. Again this school is restricted by “SUNY”. A cursed four letter word that solely oppressed SBU by restricting its full potential. Cuomo has not done a single good thing for SBU since he arrived. He is evil and must be defeated.

Can't forget to mention the huge number of STEM kids as well. They're "smart", great, well they have the social skills of a brick and an aversion to anything related to sex or drugs. And their virgin asses probably add little to no social value to the school as well.

This is spot on the money!!

it's the issue i keep talking about- and no, we weren't even on his radar (LC, UVa, UNC, SU, MD).

i know i'm a broken record but kids look at colleges today based on social media reviews- and here are some of the latest:


(if you can get past the atrocious language) everyone has the same conclusion- there’s nothing to do on campus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtkQb-9W4CU

and the same thing, hard to make friends (give a few minutes only): https://youtu.be/9hTEVkifNlg?t=111

social life again (give this 2 minutes): https://youtu.be/YR-RvjbuDN8?t=390

lacking in campus life, no one around, no events: https://youtu.be/nY_X3ZDlHZk?t=561


and yes, it is now worse with a global pandemic.

Good job on collecting these Chairman. So much of this hit home it's crazy. SBU is definitely the most anti-social campus I've ever seen. The whole "it's what you make it" line is the same sh*t people have been saying for the last 10+ years. If there's anything that will hold this university back it is this. Then again, now with Covid and the college bubble bursting, people will be even more focused on costs and academics and less on a social life and the college experience, so SBU may not need to change. Other colleges may change to be more like SBU. I echo all the sentiments said though. The lack of a social scene is far and away the worst thing about this school.

new SUNY chancellor, jim malatras, is a former cuomo aid and pres of Empire State: https://spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/central-ny/ny-state-of-politics/2020/08/21/cuomo-ally-to-lead-new-york-s-suny-system

This University is doomed. i am sorry to say it.  Just look what Cuomo did to NYS before the Pandemic. over 6.5 Billion Dollars in debt, in a booming economy. If Jim Malatras was his advisory during that time, Stony brook will be in a world of hurt financially. get ready for higher Tuition prices coming real soon!!

I hate that I have to agree with you, but you're probably right. Him having worked with Cuomo for so long says it all. Of course there will be plenty of money to be thrown around to pet project and cronies and what have you, but none for SBU of course.  >:(

Basketball season was originally slated to begin with games on Nov. 10, but is likely to move to Nov. 25 based upon a joint recommendation from the NCAA committees that oversee men's and women's basketball. The rationale makes sense. Most campuses are scheduled to clear out at Thanksgiving, so disruption for basketball teams will be limited.

As for football, the CAA soon will finalize a schedule for the spring. We do know that the regular season will end on April 17, with selections for the FCS playoffs taking place the following day. The team has been working hard and looking forward to "fall ball" in October.

The spring season, which will be limited to a maximum of eight regular-season games, is going to be a springboard for the fall.

A total **** show!

I disagree. I was against a spring season because it throws off the 2021 season, however if we use it in place of Spring football, limit it to 8 games, and then start the 2021 season in October as it seems to be the plan then I think this could work out well. Plus we get football year round from now until early 2022 basically in one form or another. I'm down.

Stony Brook Alum Timon Parris Claimed by NFL's Falcons, Paving Way for Week 1 Roster Spot
https://stonybrookathletics.com/news/2020/9/6/football-stony-brook-alum-timon-parris-claimed-by-nfls-falcons-paving-way-for-week-1-roster-spot.aspx

I had totally forgotten about Parris. Great to hear!!

Unfortunately it also looks like Connor Davis didn't make the cut for the Jets. He's been in and out of the AAF, XFL, and now various NFL camps.

https://stonybrookathletics.com/news/2020/9/6/reports-stony-brook-football-alum-gavin-heslop-to-join-seahawks-practice-squad.aspx

Was a bit sad when I saw he didn't make it, but honestly making the active roster for the Seahawks at that position out of the gate was always going to be a long shot. Being on the practice squad gives him a chance to develop and depending on how Covid shakes out, perhaps see the field at some point.

I know nothing about him, but I'm going to assume it was a good pickup. I really thought this would be our year to win the AE and get back to the tournament, but then everything went to hell and everybody left. No clue what to expect next year. If we finish better than 4th in conference though I'd be lowkey impressed.

No to get anyones hopes up or jinx it ahead of tomorrow's deadline, but Gavin Heslop is still listed on the Seahawks roster. The deadline for cuts is tomorrow at 4 and he's one of the 78 still on the roster at the moment. Would be a big deal if he makes it and with how I anticipate this season will go as far as players missing time due to the virus, I think it's fairly likely he sees the field at some point this year assuming he at least makes the practice squad.

Stony Brook University confirmed its first student case of COVID-19 on campus last week, the university said on its website Friday. The fall semester started on Monday.

If we're going to treat this virus like it's a giant hoax and have the kids back on campus, we're going to have to accept that there will be cases. We can minimize things as best we can, but unless we're all 100% remote we're going to have cases.

I'm aware of Title IX, but out of everything we've got on the Men's side, soccer is the first on the chopping block and could be cut without much fanfare. Women's soccer could be cut along with it, but I mention S&D and Tennis simply because I imagine they're less popular and will be missed less. If I'm wrong there then other sports will be cut.

Football (yes, really), basketball, and LAX will be safe on the men's side. Everything else is on the chopping block potentially. Baseball I can't imagine being cut unless things get really bad. The associated women's sports would probably be cut too along with men's to keep the title IX stuff even and save more money.

This is going to be a sh*tshow all around. Not good at all.

I cant imagine SB not eliminating multiple D1 sports from their program...I would bet the ranch on it.

Men's soccer is gone at a minimum. Along with probably women's tennis, and swimming and diving. Or perhaps they cut both men's and women's soccer to start. Multiple schools will experience cuts.

I'm all in favor of full on cancellation of fall sports including football. Just wear your goddamn masks and hopefully in 2021 we'll be ready to try again.

What if in 2021, we are in the same position. Cancel sports again? This crap is not going away. We, as a society need to make adjustment and live our lives and move on. A vaccine will most likely be available by the fall of 2021, but how many people will take it. Not me! Does that pose a threat to sports? I say play ball but with no fans, Just like in MLB.

Assuming it works out, the vaccine will be key to containing this. If people continue to wear masks and get the goddamn vaccine (Just take it, not having that debate right now) yes we'll be fine for sports in 2021. Vaccination of athletes will likely be mandatory along with students who intend to come on campus.
