The Umass story sounds like a complete disaster. i don't think we can compare S/B to UMASS ..Their Alumni would have to travel 90 miles to  Foxboro stadium just to watch the game !!!!. Complete disaster they are  not to mention the football program lost over $750,000 in 2012 due to low attendance. I would actually like to see SB play UMASS...

Fantastic news about finishing No. 11 in the country.  lets look for an even better result this upcoming season.  Realistically, I see us winning at least two to three games into the FCS playoffs as long as we get consistent QB and RB play this upcoming season.

Washington, D.C. - Stony Brook All-American Kevin Norrell has accepted an invitation to play in the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) Collegiate Bowl on January 19. The game will be played at Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., near Norrell's hometown of Los Angeles.

The game will be televised live on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. ET, and features the top draft-eligible seniors in the country. ESPNU will broadcast four hours of live coverage of the practices. Former NFL head coaches Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil will lead the American and National teams.

Norell's 2012 season will go down as one of the most prolific campaigns in school and Big South history. The all-conference performer caught 66 passes for 1,388 yards and 15 TDs. He's the only player in Stony Brook history with at least 1,000 receiving yards in a season, and owns the Big South single-season records for yards, yards per game (106.8) and yards per catch (21.0).

He recorded 100 yards and a touchdown in five straight games, including a school-record 214 yards against Charleston Southern. In back-to-back games against Presbyterian and VMI, Norrell tallied three touchdowns. Norrell owns the second and third-longest touchdown receptions with scores of 89 and 86 yards against Central Connecticut and Pace.

Norrell, who started his career at Washington State, earned All-America honors from three different organizations - The Sports Network, Associated Press and Phil Steele.

Norrell finished his two-year Seawolves career with 20 TDs and 2,061 yards, which are tied for second and third, respectively, in the program's Division I history.

In the week leading up to the game, current NFL coaches and players will speak to the participants on the business of football, and how to succeed in life after the NFL. The future stars of the NFL will be given insight on how to handle success on and off the field.

 It just gets better and better for S/B..........................Kevin Norrell invited to NFLPA Collegiate Bowl

 Tuesday January 8, 2013 10:08 AM By Greg Logan


Photo credit: Joseph D. Sullivan

Stony Brook wide receiver Kevin Norrell, who led the Football Championship Subdivision in yards per catch (21.0) last season, has accepted an invitation to play in the NFLPA-sponsored Collegiate Bowl all-star game Jan. 19 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The game will be televised live on ESPN2, and ESPNU will provide live practice coverage during the week.

Norrell joins Seawolves running back Miguel Maysonet on the postseason all-star circuit, which should provide a visibility boost for coach Chuck Priore’s football program. Maysonet, who was runnerup for the Walter Payton Award as FCS player of the year, has been invited to the prestigious East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 19 in St. Petersburg, Fla., but to play in that game, he first must obtain a release from the Raycom College Football All-Star Classic played that same day in Montgomery, Ala.

Stony Brook’s two straight FCS playoff appearances coincided with Norrell’s emergence as a deep-strike threat. As a senior, Norrell caught 66 passes for 1,388 yards and 15 touchdowns, and he set Big South conference records for yards, yards per game (106.8) and yards per catch. He also set a school record with a 214-yard game against Charleston Southern. Norrell, a Los Angeles native who transferred from Washington State, earned All-America honors from The Sports Network, Associated Press and Phil Steele.

Leo: As a former beat writer for an FCS team, who are some main prospects from this level of college football? In particular, do you believe a player like Kevin Fogg from Liberty (Leo’s alma mater) has a chance to make an NFL roster?

Chris: Fogg is petitioning for a medical hardship year and hopes to come back next season. But he’s certainly the sort of player who has carved a niche out for himself not only as a physical player who can cover at corner, but as a dynamic special teams player who is great in both the kick and punt return games. As you saw with Mike Brown last year, players who can do multiple things well have great value in a game where you have limited roster space. As far as other FCS players, the highest guy I’m seeing on draft boards is Tennessee Tech’s Da’Rick Rogers, the Tennessee transfer wide receiver. I’ve got to think a guy like Miguel Maysonet from Stony Brook will get a look, though. Tough, crafty runner with power inside and shiftiness outside.

this website is a good location for FCS news and notes.  see link to preview of top teams for 2013 season.  I'm a bit dismayed that SB is not in their list of top teams for next season, while several of our new CAA colleagues are listed, including Villanova as one of the top 5 teams.

reasonable to expect when you lose a class of excellent player. But I'm not worried about what TSN has to say. I expect the Seawolves to bounce back and have another playoff year!!

Any word on what game Maysonet is playing in?   He is not listed on the East West Shrine roster:
