Ok so I'm a senior right now in high school and I want to do pre med/pre dental in college. I'm mainly considering Suny Stony Brook, Suny Binghamton, and Suny Albany. I know that SBU is awesome academically, and I would love to go there, but I'm getting worried about the numerous student reviews all over the internet.

I want to go away to college to get a good education, but also party...a lot. I've heard that Stony Brook is pretty much dead on the weekends and that there are almost no parties. Is it true? Is it that bad that I should look to a lower ranked ( but still good) school like UAlbany? ( which is known for having a great nightlife/party scene).

Here are the problems.
1-Terrible campus life for the student athletes. Tough to overcome when it comes down to recruiting.
2-Having Albany in our conference. We have continued to be the 2nd best team in this conference.
   Kudos to the Albany program. They have had a nice run at our expense.
Lets see if we can get on a run of our own. Very young and promising.

Not a big LAX fan by any means (trying to learn!) but the poor start for the team has me worried. I've been waiting for a season where they really establish themselves with Nagle and it isn't there yet which has me concerned. It's even more glaring given the tremendous success Spallina has had in such a short time.

Again, this is just coming from a casual fan who is growing more impatient in recent years.
This.
There’s no reason SB shouldn’t have success like Albany, or more given location and academics.

I agree Wolfie. Nagle has had ample time to take this program to the next level. Long Island is a breading ground for Lax stars. Just not in a SB men's uniform...


Looking forward to watching the game tonight on Big Ten Network. Newsday had the game 2 goals apart in 4th quarter before wheels fell off

I just looked at the 2017 All Long Island Lacrosse Teams:
3 going to Maryland
3 to Virginia
3 to Cornell
3 to Stony Brook
2 to Hopkins, Hofstra and Duke
rest of list is just 1 kid per school

I might be wrong but thats pretty good for SB. Need to see it on the field but the talent is getting recruited.

That's an impressive haul- gotta turn that recruiting success into production on the field.

Problem one is Nagel. Look at his track record. He made the NCAA tournament once some years ago, and that was with the remanence of Coash Sowell’s team.  Coach Sowell has gone onto continued growth and success at Navy while SB and Nagel continue to rebuild. Second, Nagel does get some good recruits, but after a year or two of Nagel lax they transfer, which brings us back to problem one.

I wish more of these big guys would develop the little jump hooks and more confidence with the "very short game" in this conference, as Ochefu seems to be showing hints of now. In this typically under-sized conference, I think a lot of these bigger guys could drop some consistent, maybe even serious, points with those shots every night...does anybody have Warney's entire career on video, and if so can you send it to Ochefu?

i feel like ive been saying this for 2 years and no one was listening... well, someone was!

Call me a delusional homer, but in the AE, anything can happen. After all those years of screwing us over in the AE tourney, I'd love nothing more than to get Albany in the first round and win. I wouldn't say it's impossible, though very unlikely. It'll be nice to head into the tourney with nothing to lose for a change.

4. The Brine/US Lacrosse Player of the Week is Stony Brook’s Courtney Murphy. She tallied a team-high eight points in her return to the field since tearing her ACL, helping the Seawolves to a season-opening 14-10 win over USC.

5. No. 2 Stony Brook continued to roll with a 15-9 win over Stanford on Monday night to complete its season-opening West Coast trip. The 2017 Tewaaraton finalist Kylie Ohlmiller broke out for an eight-point performance on six goals and two assists. Her sister, Taryn, recorded five points.

STONY BROOK GOAL!

It's Kylie Ohlmiller again!

She's got goals now and the Seawolves lead is back up to #NCAALAX #AEWLAX pic.twitter.com/tFQooW1OC5

Of course odds are that SBU goes 0-3 in these last three games, so a single win from here on would be a big positive for this team this year all things considered. With Hartford on their tail UMBC will no doubt be taking all final games seriously to hold the 2 seed, so unlikely SBU catches them cruising. That said, as noted UMBC seems capable of having very off nights, which is probably the starting point for what SBU needs to sneak out a win there if at all possible.

Here's hoping even with a 0-3 finish that the three primary freshmen in the mix continue to play and gain confidence. I'm assuming Olaniyi is a pretty solid pick for the all rookie team, seems Ochefu is finding his footing a bit (I wish more of these big guys would develop the little jump hooks and more confidence with the "very short game" in this conference, as Ochefu seems to be showing hints of now. In this typically under-sized conference, I think a lot of these bigger guys could drop some consistent, maybe even serious, points with those shots every night...does anybody have Warney's entire career on video, and if so can you send it to Ochefu?), and I'm still good with Mackenzie (I like his toughness and smarts, despite the slow feet and terrible shot this year--I hope he spends all summer developing a serviceable long shot).
