As a lehigh fan was impressed by your team and stony brooks facilities . As far as the game goes I knew lehigh was in for an uphill battle . Lehigh held its own in the first half , I knew stony brooks depth would show up the longer the game went on . The patriot league does not have the depth of the caa . Kids canít red shirt , canít take transfers it effects the team you put on the field . Iíll be rooting for stony brook classy fans and a classy team !

I thought Priore pulled a very classy move when he had us take a knee with 2:38 left (on Lehigh's 15 yard line) -- four consecutive times. At that point Lehigh couldn't stop us and there was no need to go up 66-29.  This meant, of course, we turned the ball over on downs and allowed Lehigh to run two plays (short screen and knee) to end the game.

The gap between CAA and PL has not narrowed since athletic scholarships came to the PL five years ago.

While non-medical redshirts and limited transfers (Fordham has done well with transfers so that is not an actual rule) has a big effect, the biggest is that 2 and 3 star recruits routinely show up to play CAA (and Ivy) but only rarely to PL.  Since CAA has some excellent academic institutions and superior football it is nearly impossible for PL to out-recruit CAA. (And that is on top of the difficulty of out-recruiting the deep-pocketed and resurgent Harvard, Yale, and Princeton)

It was nice to see Lehigh's strong fan contingent show up at the stadium. I think it was the largest visiting crowd (minus Albany) I've seen in quite some time. The QB and receiving corps were as talented as advertised.

Not having players able to use financial aid as a resource to fund their education hinders the patriot league .
Lehigh has not one transfer on their roster . The depth and the 60 scholarship number compared to the caa and 63 scholarships in the caa creates much more depth and financial options .

Lehigh is a great program with a great history and fan support. I actually think this game was great testament to how far Stony Brook has come since joining the CAA. The CAA schedule is so difficult it has kind of fooled us into thinking that our program has been stuck in neutral when there has actually been a lot of progress that hasn't shown up in the win loss column. Back in our Big South days, a win over the Patriot League champs would have been a very big deal. It's still a big deal, but our CAA affiliation has kind of warped our perspective I think.

I thought I posted this yesterday, but I can't find it so I'm posting it again

Regarding fan support, I think we just need to keep winning. I couldn't have cared less about Stony Brook athletics until I saw Stony Brook pop up on Lundardi's predicted bracket in February of 2010. I went to a few games and was hooked. Stony Brook just needs to keep winning.

I also want to shout out Adam Peck of Brookland. I really think he's great for Stony Brook athletics. The voice of Brookland is perfect and I really think its social media presence brings a lot of intangible advantages to Stony Brook. I just put my money where my mouth is and bought some of his tees. I encourage you all to do the same.

It's a Warney reference of some sort. Pretty sure Warney would use the hashtag "bullyszn" (pronounced "bully season"). In general calling things szn seems to be something the kids are doing these days. It might be a Kanye reference?
