Looks like Cruz is gone they gave his #4 to the transfer Avery Graham.  Although you can have a double # in college as long as one is off. and one is on def.  Hatcher may not have made the grades and is headed to JUCO.  They have 17 freshman listed so I would think that they are all headed to camp. Most should get redshirted though. Also two incoming freshman have same # as upperclassman but both are on the same side of the ball so expect them to be redshirted ( D' Amato & Marino ).

No mentioning of Cruz being let go, and he was mentioned by a few SBU insiders as early as a few weeks ago. He could very well have injured himself. Not uncommon to get a 2nd redshirt, and a medical is nearly always granted.

Also - if I was Avery Graham - I get to pick my number. Even if Cruz was on the roster, Graham would still be wearing #4. Graham didn't do much at Maryland, but he was still a touted transfer.

I did see an interesting post  the other night not by one of our fans but some one in the AE.  SBU may pass on the CAA if invited ?  The reasoning  is we are  moving on  to bigger things in about 5 years and dont want to be stuck with a 1 milion dollar exit fee. Any substance  to this ?

There may be - but it wouldn't be about football. CAA Football is a distinct entity, and still maintains its original 250K exit fee. It would be a poor decision not to join up as at least a Football only member ASAP, as it seems the Big South's days backing football appear to be numbered.

Frankly I don't mind us pulling a Delaware or Gonzaga for a few years if it means more money, larger fan base, larger stadium, and ultimately an entry to a more financially profitable FBS conference (ie. NOT the MAC)

  They usually don't take you off the roster if you are hurt, they only do that if you are ineligible or you left school. My point about giving out his # to a transfer was that in college you can have double #'s as long as both play on opposite sides of the ball.  In this case they both could have worn the same number.  I heard the same things about Cruz from football alums close to program but you never know what the kid wants (more playing time).

ESPN they started covering college football again (yee ha), and focused on Army's football heritage and upcoming season. They showed Army's schedule and sure enough, there was "Stony Brook" along with the other big name schools. It was actually weird seeing the words "Stony Brook" up there with the big boys. Now to steal a win.

Getting very excited- we are less than 2 months away!  From all the good that was done in 2011/12, you have to think this upcoming year is going to be huge.  Its something to build on, and then, eclipse.

Looking over the roster, I noticed Devante Wheeler has been moved from cornerback to WR. Wheeler has been in the two deep at cb the last two seasons. I'm taking it as a good sign Priore moved him despite graduating two starters ahead of him. Have to think the redshirts and transfers are looking good.

Also Dan Mulrooney moved to LB which is a bit of head scratcher considering how effective he was last year at SS and how loaded we are at lb this year. Priore said in the spring Nakwaasah was moving to middle linebacker. I'm guessing Mulrooney is taking his place on the weakside. Greg Melendez seems like a strong candidate to take over the open starting safety position. Melendez hasn't gotten much attention but he is a proven transfer. He has started in every game he's dressed for and played in two of the best FCS conferences in the country.

   We just might be seeing  a new level of talent and depth this year. That is a nice luxury to have.

It's unbelievable. Last year the team had enough depth to redshirt every freshman and junior college transfer. For 2012 they return something like 15 starters from last years nationally ranked team, added some of the most high profile FBS transfers in the country, and have 20+ redshirts looking to get on the field. I'm eager to 2012 media guide to know what the preseason depth chart looks like.

Our coaching staff has done an outstanding job building this program.   With our depth we have   a complete team that could  start anywhere  and they are redshirts.

  Recieved a tweet from Jevahn Cruz stating that he no longer plays for SB. He didn't say were he is playing now.
