Haven't seen any comment regarding Lindy's preseason poll. They ranked us #24. I found it pretty low considering we are basically an improved team over last year. But it doesn't really matter. 45 days till College Football. So excited. I'm looking for to attending just about every game this season.

GO SEAWOLVES!!!!!

SBUfan started the discussion about the preseason polls back in May. My comment from then has not changed: "Bogus. The Seawolves finished in the Top 20 last year. With the addition of Coker and a few other top transfers, and the return of key players, even 15th is suspect. But 24th is just plain whack."

As for Cruz's transfer, there are two ways of looking at it. It would of course have been nice to have a Hansen winner stay on the team...that's a no-brainer. But the fact that a team is so stacked that a HANSEN WINNER would be taking a back seat to two other running backs is quite a luxury for any FCS team to have.

     We are loaded this season for sure and this years team  will be better than the 2011 team no doubt.  I dont mind playing under the radar  until the end of the season when we are back in the playoffs. Just look what baseball did .  We are easily better than 24th  and we will be much higher come November.

Agreed. Last season Army spanked Fordham badly, and I don't think they'll take the Seawolves too seriously when they travel to West Point. Especially true if SBU doesn't have a Top 10 ranking by that point.

Sorry if this is repetitive- here's a blog that argues that the CAA is the best of the FCS.  http://jmusportsblog.com/?p=4014

Last January we finished 28th here: http://www.compughterratings.com/FCS/ratings
Phil Steele (#28): http://www.philsteele.com/FCSINFO/Power_Poll.html
Athlon (#16): http://www.championshipsubdivisionnews.com/log/index.php/2012/07/02/athlon-magazine-s-2012-preseason?blog=2

There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

 I believe Fordham lost to a D2 program last year. They were terrible.  We can run and we certainly can pass against the Black Knights. I dont think thier  option run game is that great and they dont pass that much Liberty they are not.  If they overlook us for the following weeks  game they will be in hole rather quickly.

This could be a very good season for SBU! Alot of talent not even mentioned such as Coxson and Coker only add to our potential.

I think we could be a little higher, but I will take 16th for now.  Hopefully we are in the Top 10 come November.

No. 9 in Phil Steele's preseason poll. Last year he said 15 and we ended up in 16. No doubt we are a top 10 team this year

Phil Steele does a great a job with his poll. He really looks at every team and doesn't just vote on reputation. I think he was only poll that had us ranked in the preseason last year.

I hope everyone keys in on Coker.  And then Miguel runs all over them on the weakside.

Im also anxious to see Jawara Dudley crush someone coming through the gap
