Incarnate Word  upsets Sam Houston State, and SE Louisiana upsets Mcneese in the Southland. Every team in that conference has at least three losses, and no team has more than two conference wins. The Softland is looking like a one-bid conference this year which I'm fine with. That whole league is a joke and it's shameful both SHSU and Central Arkansas both got seeds last year.

Delaware hangs on to win a close one @ Albany 21-16. I take from it that neither of our final two games will be easy. Delaware is beatable for us especially at home, but conversely Albany could definitely beat us.
If the worst team in the CAA can “definitely beat us,” then extending Priore’s contract is even more of a head scratcher. Hopefully you’re way wrong.

I think VASeawolf noted Albany "could definitely beat us" to highlight the strength of the CAA (top to bottom -  including Albany who is probably our biggest rival and who will be hosting us). If we beat Delaware we will be solidly favored to beat Albany.

Priore's build our overall program to a level that I expect to be a CAA champion contender each year going forward and expect to see us win the CAA if we can just land a QB (along the lines of the current Villanova/UNH/Towson QB's).

UNH QB knight single handedly beat JMU. If SB could find a QB with 50% of knight abilities, SB would be favored to win the CAA . We probably have the best defense in the CAA and quite possibly the best RB as well, it's just our QB issue is an ongoing thing year in and year out. Carbone didnt have a single scholarship offer from any FCS school. How does SB make him a 3 year starter?? I dont understand what is the problem here.

 So we have QBs in the wings waiting to take over in 2019 and Fields looks like the heir apparent . So we will see him for 3 years . The other candidates will probably never the see the ball.  That's the current system yet I look at the P5 teams and they switch  QBs at a wim no questions asked.

We dont know how good or bad Fields is. But something tells me he is similar to Carbone. This is totally inexcusable for SB at this time. Carmen Felus is SB QB coach. he is also responsible for bringing in top talented QB to SB. If he doesnt have the tangibles to do that that say good buy and find a QB coach who can. This is a business and SB needs to take recruiting very seriously. Find the best people you can with the money and contacts available.

I have been watching this team going on 10 years now. The last good QB this school has ever had was Kyle Essington. That was years ago when SB was in the Big South. The time is now to bring in a big boy like Towson, UNH, and Maine, JMU always does..

I agree with the sentiments of the QB position. Though we can aim way higher than just winning the CAA if we had a great QB. With this run game and defense? We'd be in Frisco playing North Dakota St. for the national title if we had Essington back there. NO idea how good the young guys we've got right now are, so I'll reserve judgement there. That said, there's got to be a talented FBS QB somewhere who would love the opportunity to transfer and instantly make SBU a national title contender.

They're our biggest rival and could potentially deny us a playoff bid with a loss. Plus it's a home game for them. We needed overtime to beat them last year, so there's no reason to think they couldn't beat us this year. Coach P has gotten some great wins at SBU, but we've had plenty of WTF losses over the years and that Albany game has all the makings to be one of them if we don't take care of business.

Singlehandedly? I guess 6 JMU turnovers, including 2 returned for TD's don't mean much

SBU moves up to #12 in the latest STATS poll and #15 in the COACHES poll. Delaware is #11 in the STATS and #12 in the COACHES poll. In any case this is a top 15 matchup this weekend at Lavalle and carries huge playoff implications for both teams. Winner certainly jumps into the top ten and remains in the hunt for the CAA title, playoff auto-bid and potentially a first round bye in the post season. This one will be even bigger than the Villanova game, so a huge turnout is a must. I know we've always struggled with attendance after Homecoming, but this would be a great weekend to change that.

Anyone notice that Jordan Scarbrough is no longer on the Stony Brook roster? It looks like he hasn't played since the Towson game? Was he kicked off the team?

Good question.  I'll try and find out

If you want to feel dizzy try following the various scenarios for the CAA auto bid.
SBU is currently second behind JMU in the Sagarin ratings for tiebreaker purposes.
