I think that stat is incredible. Say what you want about the pro sports market, people are interested in our programs. It's also worth noting that the tweet came from an assistant AD at Ohio University, a MAC school.

I'm loving the tweet: "Great conversion w/Senator LaValle at lunch today w/a few head coaches on the sound in Port Jefferson. Future is bright" - JDFiore

Nice offer here from Fiore- to the Jets to hold a preseason game at LaValle: http://www.newsday.com/sports/football/jets/stony-brook-offered-to-play-host-to-jets-training-camp-practice-on-li-1.3872371

Though, the Jets wont take it.  Im a Giants fan anyway.   :-X

I think alot of our teams are going to see significant improvement.  Football should dominate the Big South. Even mighty Liberty should take notice.   Like the tweet from our AD  something up we dont know about yet?
Keep an eye on our mens soccer. We could be loaded with talent.  They beat UConn in the spring 4-0  not shabby at all.

Of course the Jets loser owner would rather have the practice for the Long Island fans in NJ.  It pains me to say they but the Jets would have been better off with Dolan owning the team.

And that's a bold statement- coming from a former Cablevision customer, and, a longtime Ranger fan!

Looking at the CAA, even though September 2013 is a while away (and no official announcement yet!), we have played and beaten NH and Maine.  Id say if we were in today, we could beat at least half of those teams, conservatively.  GO SB

I'm very optomistic  about next season.  We will do well in our new conference for sure. It will be tough you have a few former National Champs and quite a few play off teams in that group.

I thought this was a good video to watch in regards to a FCS school looking to go into the FBS. NDSU aw we all know, is worthy of moving up, but probably won't for a long time because of the same issues we have at Stony Brook. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$... The mighty Dollar will hold us back from making the transition .. Still a good video Blog from these two guys talking about  that!!!

I had a nice time at the Spring practise today. Maysonet, and  Essington were sitting in the bleachers and we had some small talk... They are both a pleasure to talk to and very respectable young men... I wish them both the very best luck in their life endeavor !!!!    I did get a chance to see both Negron and Bednarski at Quarterback and I would say Negron won the battle in that category.. Bednarski does have a nice arm but his accuracy is to be questioned. Negron, from what i see has control with both and should be our starting Quarterback this season assuming he stays healthy, Essington agrees as well.. In the Wide receiver Dept. SB recently recruited a JV Transfer who actually is a Senior this year,# 5 Malcolm Eugene. Malcolm looks really, really good and should be a nice replacement with Norrel gone.

We still have a lot of Spring practise left and Transfers are coming in from all over the place so stay tuned, this year should be exciting and If I see something not floating on the web, I'll pass it along.

  Been  checking  future schedules  of FBS  teams and came across these  . Don't know if they will hold up but we have future  games   in 2014 @ Cincinnati 8/30 , 2015 @  UConn 9/6  and 2017 @  USF 9/2 .   Good lineup  if we don't get  cancelled along the way.

Elon U. announced it is moving from the Southern Conference to the CAA in 2014. Elon has been a Top 25 FCS team recently, though perhaps not for the last couple of years.
