Re: 2011: Season Complete - Thoughts on SBU Football...

Congrats on a terrific season. I'm looking forward to next year as it will be a true fight for the league championship. I'm glad the schedule swings back in LU's favor with you having to play @Coastal and @Liberty. Should be the first time since 2006 that someone will come into Lynchburg from the Big South and likely be favored to win the game. Iím interested to find out what week the game is, as we know itís not the final week of the season because we play @VMI the final week.

We're also at Presbyterian which I think will be a tough game. Our three toughest conference games will all be on the road next year. I'm hoping we can get our first FBS win next season and take care of business against Central Connecticut State and Colgate so that we can lose one of those games and still have a case for an at large.

I've said it a couple times in various different message boards but you guys will be VERY good next year. You guys were young this year, and most/all of your impact players that returned this year weren't playing or weren't playing at 100%. You lose a couple big name players, but returning almost your entire starting D and offensive line more than makes up for the losses. And after playing the NEC champ as well as the number 1 seed in tournament, I feel safe saying you guys could have made some noise in the play offs this year.

Also it's unfortunate the Liberty Stony Brook game won't be the season finale.
