JP Roane might have been a ** player out of HS but after he came here he took off a semester for personal reasons and I donít think he ever felt good about being here. Also there were players ahead of him on the depth chart coming back next year.

Also another player that entered the portal is Will Cochado and between now and the Spring there will be others and for the most part they are players who werenít going to get much playing time anyway

I was talking to some people regarding the SBU Coaches and from what they know there will be no changes until after the February signing day so it doesnít effect recruiting

Early signing day is December 19

There are at least 7 LI HS players that will be coming to SBU as preferred walk-one who made All County

SBU does not need a new direction and this is why I say that;

Since 2015 SBU has the 2nd best record in the CAA

Coach P is not there to coddle his players heís there to mold them and if they canít take it then they should leave

As fans we have to realize what this University is about and that is Research if you want athletics to be #1 then you have to add programs like Teaching and Business Administration

Recruiting is going really well the players leaving are walk-ons and malcontents

What Coach do want to hire thatís realistic in getting

As far as getting more people in the stadium I wouldnít count the students so they have to come up with better ideas that will attract people such as giveaways and game times

I know I will get a lot of pushback on what I just wrote so bring it on and by the way I rather have Coach P over some of the other names that people throw around on this forum.

Campi. as always i respect everything you are saying and you do have more insight to what is going on behind closed doors, however. As fans we want to see a new direction with SB football. We want to see them start winning and become a perineal powerhouse.

Coach P was given all the tools, money, resources to make this happen but SB constantly shows us when it comes to tougher opponents they get crushed. yeah, they may beat the likes of, Sacred Heart, Bryant, CCSU, but when it comes down to stronger teams in the FCS , they cant seal the deal. And almost winning only works with hand grenades and horseshoes.

To be continued!

on the attendance issue- we landed at: 40k (8k/game)
9652+5742+6204+12812+5599

(always have to disclaim counting tickets, free tickets, the gate, etc.)

while solid, i think most would want it improved.  given that JMU (homecoming) was 13k, leaving us at 6750/game (roughly half full).

i propose an experiment- give away all the tickets for free and see how many students show up.

whoops.

The type of player that would be great for SBU is the IVY League kid however it's hard to lure a kid like this to SBU even with our great Research Programs

If they ever do want to make a Coaching change there a 2 places I would start; Junior Colleges and a high Academic College that constantly wins

They can try giving away all the tickets they want, but at this point the brand of football is holding SBU back more than anything. Back in the Big South days when we had Maysonett, Essington, etc. our offense put up way more points and was exciting to watch as Kyle could make all the throws and we had a clear talent advantage over the rest of that conference. These days? It's run up the middle three times and then punt against much more formidable competition in the CAA.

Fields brings a dual threat element to this offense finally, but that's still not enough when Coach still runs it up the middle every play. We need somebody who can run the air raid offense and develop a quarterback. This is the system you see at Oklahoma, Washington State, SMU, and other places.

One thing I will agree with Campi on is who that person is. You'd probably have to manage to pull away one of the low level assistant coaches at one of the P5 schools mentioned which is a tall order. SBU is a tier 1 academic university and is right up there with the Big Ten schools academically though, so while it wouldn't be easy, it's certainly not impossible for us to get a guy like that.

i certainly agree, and wanted to further point out- i would suppose that the average SBU student that attends a game does NOT know the distinction between P5 vs nonP5, or maybe even FCS vs FBS.  or who is in the CAA, for example.

to them it's just college football.  they don't know the American vs USA.  the ohio valley from the missouri valley.  southern vs southland.  few in the northeast do.

meaning, only winning and excitement is what matters to these fans (not to me by the way).  they probably mostly don't know or even care who we play, what conference, etc.
