2019 G3: STONY BROOK vs. Wagner 6pm SNY
« on: September 14, 2019, 03:04:24 am »
Itís our SNY debut! Not to mention the first game where alcohol is being sold at LaValle.

I know we almost got 10,000 people last time, but Iíd be shocked if we came even close this week. The students are pissed off and boycotting football because they moved the Homecoming tailgate away from the big lot to host a BBQ there instead.

I can see this affecting the entire seasonís attendance numbers because the kids are unbelievably angry. They want to watch attendance numbers crash and burn and so many of them are flat out refusing to ever attend a football game again. Victor Ochi tweeted about it too and got plenty of support.

Yup, and I engaged in that conversation. Ochi is 100%. This university only has it's priority set on making money and lost all connections with the student base. Attendance will crash and burn from the students and eventually, it will trickle it's way down to the season ticket holders. Dark days ahead for this program if they dont start listening to the students..

I have been saying that for the last 3 years that they should have school kids come for free and I also have been saying that with the amount of HS teams playing on Friday Nights there is no reason not to have a bunch of teams on Saturday. I also told the AD with the amount of NYC kids coming here SBU should work a deal with the LIRR to get City fans out to games plus give a good deal on game tickets plus something from the snack bar.
One last thing when we were out in Utah last week since it was their first home game they marched in all the incoming freshmen and gave them a free seat in the student section it was awesome to see that

Quite frankly, I thought it was stupid that we didnít tailgate for every single home game last year and only went all out during homecoming. Thatís pathetic. Look at any Big Ten school and how the kids go crazy for game day ó any game day ó and then look at us with our empty lot for all but one game of the entire year. Something needs to change. Itís inexcusable that the lot isnít rocking every home game.

crowd looks embarrassingly thin.

wagner couldnt run the ball.  rushing attempts were 59 to 12 (not sure i've seen that before!).

on the other side- nekhet and white and fields were great on the ground.  credit to the OL for opening nice holes, especially on the off tackle.  we had some miscues (lots of flags early) and a 50 yard TD run called back, but got the job done. 

3rd down wagner was 1/10; we were 10/19.  that seems to always be the leading indicator.

Rarely do i complain about gameday experience or anything else but i have to say this. We took some special needs teenagers to the game tonight. One of the young men had on a plastic kids football helmet ( a kids halloween costume helmet )  and also had a football with him. He was stopped at the gate and told he couldnt bring either into the game. Correct me if i am wrong but i have seen kids throwing footballs on that hill since the stadium opened. Also they have the youth teams who play at halftime bring in real football helmets to the stadium. I mean this young man is clearly special needs and just eanted to wear his helmet and hold his football witch he does everyday and these out of touch dbags stop him as if he has illegal contraban on him. Not to mention the fact that the two of us are football alumni who took the kids to the game. Unreal how they continue not to get it, not cool. On a side note to this i was told by an employee if the NY Lizards lacrosse team that they wont play at SB because they are to difficult to deal with and are not fan friendly like they are at hofstra where they let kids bring in their sticks.

Attendance? A pitiful 5,742. A drop off of almost 4,000 from last game. Thatís how badly athletics has angered the student base. I donít see their boycott ending anytime soon. We havenít had attendance numbers that low since last yearís rainy home opener.

I spoke to a couple of the coaches after the game last night and they are not happy what the university is doing either
I have a thought the students should put a petition together and then submit it to the interim president maybe he will do something about this

That was a very ugly win I donít know what everyone else is seeing but I see the offense needs to improve the defense did their job I donít understand how the offense struggles with teams like Wagner low points on the board smh Iím not happy with the offense the run game uuhhhh need improvements big time we going to get killed in our conference games if no change happens. Iím happy for the win but sheesh there needs to be improvement ASAP on offense

 I echo the same sentiment . The offense has looked terrible and of predictable but thats another story .  So we beat two very weak NEC Teams who are only partial scholarship teams . Wagner lost to D2 East Stroudsburgh St at home by two touchdowns . ,  The CAA is tough again this tear  and JMU, Towson and others  are going to eat us alive trying to run between the tackles or dropping passes .   They must improve.

So we beat two  partial scholarship teams who up until last both were win less . Wagner lost at home to D2  East Stroudsburgh St by two touchdowns.  I echo the same message the offense is not measuring up at all .  They had one maybe two good drives last night .  When we get  into conference play  we are going to be very shocked
