Agree with the last two posts. First we need to get to the tourney, so that others get to know us. Not many people have heard of Stony Brook. I live in Montgomery county in MD and work in Alexandria VA. Most have never heard of Stony Brook. Gettting to the dance a few times will help with our Brand.

I don't see much difference between CAA and AE, either. Both are one bid conferences at the moment. Lets see what happens with the Big East and Catholic 7 and their tricle down effects!

Sometimes it's fun to go on the AE Forum and look back at old posts. If you get a chance look at page #145. It has a thread about Pre Season predictions for the 2008 season. Some interesting comments that show how far we have come. We shouldn't take our success for granted. We earned it and should enjoy it.

I also am from down "South",  Howard County,Md. I've gotten used to the trip to Long Island and make it often.

That was great fun Southern Gentlemen. Here's a link for anyone interested in looking that over.

I especially liked the post from our UMBC friend "Ball of Rubber". Sure glad we didn't take his advise and scrap our basketball program just so we could maybe someday compete with their awesome Lax team.

I read through it last night.  Id say 9/10 put us last, and the few that didnt, had us 8th.  Not the story now!!!

Crazy how the tide has turned on them. Look at UMBC, Binghamton, and Albany... But this serves as a cautionary tale. No one is safe at the top and SBU has to strive to stay there. We need to keep investing, improving facilities, and promoting our brand if we want to stay at the top.

iBO: A bit off topic, but where in Alexandria? That's where I live, and work at Fort Belvoir. My email is ry1nik1@gmail.com if you want to reply there.

I work at the USPTO near old town in Alexandria. I have a long commute to my work from where I live in Rockville!

Something i love- and perhaps this is because we are in the AEC- when you go to ESPN for the basketball standings, since we are in first place currently, we are the first division 1 team you see.  I love that and im sure it helps for visibility.  Now lets get into that tournament.  GO SB

Yeah ESPN has the Conference sorted Alphabetically so we are the first conference and first team you see. LOL

Chairman, I can't agree more!  It makes it so easy to look up stats and schedules too.  Huge plus having is be the first team in the board.
