2018 Football
« on: January 22, 2018, 12:23:59 pm »
I am starting this post because there are about a half dozen people that all they do is come on this site is **** and moan about Coach P and his staff and the ones who do this probably have never coached at the college level or coached at all so I'm calling on people who appreciate what this staff has done to start talking up the program and not be like the rest of these malcontents and love to do nothing but complain for the sake of complaining.

I personally am going to do something positive this year I have a call in to the ticket office and will purchase a large block of tickets for one of the home games this year and donate them to  a HS so that they can bring their players to an SBU game

Campi,  Great start. I also told SH, that for EVERY half of football in 2018 where there is NOT one Seawolf penalty I will donate $250.00 per half (in addition to what we give already). Lets see how this "risk/ reward" works out. And I said that if they wanted to use in the form of a scholarship/foundation I am more than happy to set-up a foundation effort to support that similar to other Power 5 programs and others.

As to the coaching side- I think all of us have had issues with some of the coaching decisions, but that is what they get paid to do. All this forum provides is a positive/negative view of SBU sports, and as my grandmother used to say... "Opinions are like a$$holes. Everyone has one and they normally all stink!

I know as fans we all get frustrated however SBU doesn't have the big budget to bring in FBS assistant coaches in fact I spoke to one of the SBU assistant coaches that they have and he said in order for them to coach on LI they either have to be single or their spouses have to have good paying jobs.


For SBU to be competitive they have to recruit off of LI because the top half dozen players want the FBS and so recruiting has become a 365 day a year job for them so you have to have assistants who can be on the road a lot. We are not going to get 4 or 5 star players to come here unless they transfer in so we have to take what we can get and DEVELOP THEM

I've gone to about three (sometimes four) home games a year for the past six years and round up a few neighbors to go with me each time.  Always an enjoyable day at SBU. And those who have not been to Stony Brook in a good while are amazed and impressed by what they see. From the campus, to the stadium, to the marching band, to the quality of play  on the field.

I'm thoroughly impressed with the job Stony Brook has done in term of assembling a competitive CAA-level team. Kudos to the coaches and kids.  I do think our success in this department is at least a small part of Stony Brooks University's growing reputation. SBU is no longer a secret to the academic kids in the area.

I think the decision to enter a four-game series w/Fordham was an inspired  one and will benefit both schools and may even build a very nice NY rivalry. Certainly the students at both schools have much in common.  I've already eyeballed the train route (LIRR to Penn, MetroNorth out of Grand Central, get off at Fordham Road on the edge of campus).

Me and a bunch of ticket holders have been going to these games for about 8 years now as well. As far as Being impressed with the Campus, expanding the stadium, new concession area, marching band yes, they do a great job for being a FCS team. I am getting the opposite feed back though with the play on the field. We feel the play calling and style of plays has not changed since day one..This is something only the coaches can change..

I think the team is going to be good. A couple studs graduated, but the team returns a lot and I think they've turned a corner. Cautiously optimistic

Just checked out the preliminary roster for '18, and a couple of DL guys are notable by their absence.  Any insight into these guys (Josh Valentin and Odean Gilzene)?

Valentine didnt play last season and was on the sidelines all season.. Not sure what's up with that. That is a shame considering how strong he was on defense.

Losing Ousamne Camara to graduation is going to hurt our line. 6'1" 310 lbs. He will be hard to replace..

Understand that.  But, what's the scoop THIS season?

according to our son Josh is not allowed to play any longer. He has some issue associated with his Neck and some breakdown of his bones.

Darn, that's a huge shame. Josh was arguably the strongest guy on the team too- had a really bright future on the field.

Hope he's able to have success in his post-athletic life then

Noticed an interesting tidbit on the 2018 FB roster.  Apparently Isaiah White has been moved back to RB from LB.  I guess Coach P. thought they were too loaded with underclassman and needed some more experience in that position.
