I wouldn't say they're over-rated at all. The Team is undefeated. Has played great so far. I dont know much about them, but just looking at the margin of victory shows this team is no Joke . Also, a look at Conference RPI's for Division I football places the Big South ahead of only the Northeast Conference. Southland is a significantly stronger conference.

Still, the game is decided on the field and a lot of variables take part in the outcome. So SB can do this. Go Brook!

Personally, I have really gotten tired of hearing SOS.  As I have stated before on other boards, it is tough to go 11-0 at any level, strong or weak schedule.  If you dont know much about this team, here are some quick facts...This team is damn good.  Ton of team speed, balanced on offense and a very aggressive, tough defense.  This team will hit you in the mouth, then hit you again.

Quick stats...(National Rankings in FCS)
OFFENSE
#2 Scoring offense       39.0 ppg
#25 Total Offense       414.0 ypg
#7 Rush Offense         250.0 ypg
#3 Pass Efficiency       160.1 rating   
#7 Sacks Allowed        .73
#2 Time of Poss.

DEFENSE
#1 Scoring Defense
#1 Rush Defense
#2 Total Defense
#2 Turnover Margin
#3 Turnovers Gained
#2 Pass Efficiency Defense

SHSU is not only good, but they are young.  There are only 12 seniors on the entire roster.  Biggest makeup of the roster is with 43 freshman.  This team should be damn good over the next several years.  Our three main playmakers on offense are all sophomores and two of the three were All Southland Conference Perfomers,

RB   Tim Flanders ---- Southland Conference Player of the Year
WR Richard Sincere-- Southland Conference Offensive Player of the Year

The other key to this teams success this year is the lack of injuries in key areas.  SHSU has been very fortunate in this area.  Both teams seem to be evenly matched on paper.  Lets see what happens on the field.  Its a long trip from NY to Texas.

An interesting stat that I saw on anygivensaturday is that SHSU has only faced one rb with 700 yards or more. They haven't seen backs anywhere near as productive as either Maysonet (1500) or Jackolski (1300) . I think they're going to be the most athletic defense we've seen all year but our offense should have a considerable size advantage over their D.

Just because SHSU only faced on RB that had over 700 yds doesnt mean a thing.  Over half the teams in the SLC throw the ball a lot too.  Tx State has some very good RB's and they got shut down.  The thing about the SHSU defense is that their base defense already has 6-7 guys crowding the line of scrimmage and they are able to do that because the secondary plays incredible man defense.  Not to mention, they constantly rotate players in and out .  Not saying SB running backs wont get some yards, but I promise you this defense will be ready for the run attack.

I don't know much it'll help but Stony Brook sees opposing teams crowd the line of scrimmage every week. My guess is that we play a lot of multiple tight end sets and we'll just try to push you guys around, 4 yards and cloud of dust type offense. That's what I think we'll need to do if we're going to win. I'm excited for the game. I have no idea how it will turn out, but I'm excited to see how our run offense and defense can do against the best run d and a top 10 run offense.  It should be a good measuring stick as to where we are as a program.

Spoken like a fan.  SHSU has not seen backs like Maysonet and Jackolski.  The run game will not get shut down, and if SB doesn't commit T/O, I think most will be surprised at how you guys play.  I wish that I could get the game on the tube, but I think I'll just listen in.  There are a fair number of Liberty fans rooting for your team.

I am not discounting the Stony Brook RB's at all.  Stats dont lie at what type of backs they are, but I dont people need to discount the SHSU defense.  SHSU probably hasnt seen RB's this season like these RB's, but I will bet that the SB offense may be suprised by the speed of this defense too.  Should be a good game.  Hope to see some SB fans at Bowers on Saturday and maybe a few will stop and tailgate a little.  Safe travels.

From today's newsday:
"Does that mean Stony Brook's running game will be thwarted?

"If you look at their film, nobody tries to run the ball against them,'' Stony Brook coach Chuck Priore said. "So, at the end of the game, it's 22 carries for 55 yards. We're going to put the ball in our kids' hands 45 times, average 41/2 to 5 yards a carry and that's going to equal 180 to 200 yards, so the answer is no."
http://www.newsday.com/sports/college/stony-brook/stony-brook-will-stress-run-vs-sam-houston-1.3357650

Priore is typically a no bs kind of guy so if he says we're going to run for 180 to 200 yards I have to think he has some confidence that we'll be able to move the ball on the ground.

To the SHSU fans, I don't think any of us here mean any disrespect to you guys. You all have had one hell of a season so far and obviously have one heck of a team. I just think a lot us feel that Stony Brook can play with anyone in the country. We'll find out on Saturday.

At this point, SB can't lose. Just by making it to the second round of the playoffs is a huge recruiting tool. Losing to the #1 team on their turf, even by a blowout, wouldn't minimize that. Of course I hope for a victory, but would be fine with a competitive loss by two touchdowns or less.

Priore doesn't tend to speak much about the upcoming games... It surprises me that he did this time. I hope they can find a weakness to exploit...
