2011: Game 11 - SBU vs Liberty 11/19 (BSC Auto-bid)
« on: November 01, 2011, 09:49:00 am »
This is the game thread for the Stony Brook vs Liberty game @ LaValle Stadium on November 19th (3:30PM). Since there is talk about this game already in other threads in anticipation of this huge game, possibly the "Big South Championship Game" (FCS Autobid), if everything goes as .I decided to make the thread early.

Lets make a good discussion and put our thoughts in for the Big South game of the year

We have to make sure that students show up and get loud. Take advantage of playing at home.

Inside man, is there anything planned for this game to try and get more fans in attendance?

Looking forward to it. I made the trek to LI 2 years ago. I don't think I will do the same this year, unfortunately.

Will the game being right before Thanksgiving hurt attendance a lot?

Doubtful. Classes run till Wed. Not really a good idea for a lot of students to jump ship that week.

Many of us have midterms right before thanksgiving. I don't think people will leave home early.

Oh okay, I just assumed Friday would be the last day of classes.  I didn't realize that the students had class till that Wednesday.

The student tailgate that was originally planned for October 29th has been rescheduled for the November 19th.  There will be free food for all students outside Gate 2. 

Remember you can text "wolfie" to 313131 to receive updates every 2 weeks on all of the student events.

We will be doing a big push to get students out for what potentially could be a Big South Championship game.

Yes the school definitely has to put more effort in trying to built the football culture. Its not that students dislike the sport, or lack the the interest in following the seawolves. Its a problem of awareness. Many are not aware about the football game. Many others don't go because they don't want to be the loners in empty stands.

The LU vs SB game should be a 7k+ attendance game considering what will be at stake!

I wouldn't say its too early. Ok fine, We can talk about it after 4PM this afternoon if we beat CSU... Losing to GWU wont make a difference if we win today

Also, we are fans, not the coach or the team. We can give opinions and talk about the future anytime! ;)

For those that have Facebook and have a bit of time:

Lets spread the word about the game. Each game has an event page made by Stony Brook athletics. Invite all your friends related to Stony Brook University. Lets make it happen. Awareness is key

Glad to see you guys working to make this into an event.

Will the fact that the game is televised hurt or help attendance on Long Island?
