Lets acknowledge some of these seniors and the careers they have had. Guys like Haggert who came back from 2 acl surgerys to be a 4 yr starter and captain. Liotine who wasnt expected to do anything as a walkon from a small school, to one of the top backs in the CAA and in the top 5 at SB in rushing and all purpose yds. McGinty and Lawless both in top 5 in tackles. These kids are easy to root for. Stony Brook is not lucky to be in the CAA, they earned it by doing what they did in the big south. If you are an alumn and root for the school then do that and enjoy the kids who play for the team. Hard work goes into making the playoffs 2 yrs in a row. Home game wouldve been nice but lets not say that Heilibran screwed up the bidding process. The lose yesterday probably had to do with that. The only mention on this thread about this team is how Priore stole your lunch money. Coaches are coaches, the players make the engine run. The feeling of failing so the coach goes is really getting old. That is not supporting the players or the team. What hasnt been mentioned from yesterdays game was the lame flag thrown on Wheatley for taking his helmet off during the hailmary celebration. That moved the kick back and thus brought on the squib kick. Bottom line is this team is in the playoffs again so either get on board or jump off cause its getting old.

THANK YOU CHRISSY!

I couldn't have said it any better. This team is deserving of our support. We need to enjoy the moment. Half of the programs in the CAA would love to be in the playoffs right now. Guess what? We are in it, back to back years.

We are building success at Stony Brook little by little. Lets look at the bigger picture guys!!

And thank you to the players and Coach P for giving me at the very least one extra game to watch at home this Saturday! So excited!!!

Kumbaya time????????

I've taken great pride in the strides taken by seniors such as Julius Wingate who I have been waiting for since his freshman year. It's also been a blast seeing Donny Liotine become a stud FCS player after being hardly looked at coming out of the Stony Brook School. Carbone has also shown he has been more than capable in many games- we have a lot of uncertainty at QB going into next year which is going to be really interesting.

I'm firmly on the Stony Brook bandwagon- I'm looking forward to this next game. Hopefully Carbone gets back on track. This is a winnable game IMHO- I do worry about our guys going all the way to Missouri as its going to be a long trip- the place is >2 hours away from St. Louis. If we win that we then have a trip to Utah in the cards!

To finish the earlier debate, being a fan of this team/players and being critical of coaching are not mutually exclusive.

Hello from SEMO. Congratulations on making the playoffs. I see someone has brought up our bad defensive stats but not our good stats. To tell the truth our defense has driven me nuts all year.  Let me list some of our better defensive stats for you. #1 nationally in turnover margin, #1 in turnovers gained, #1 in interceptions, #22 in fumbles recovered, we are also #1 in fumbles lost, #5 in turnovers lost, #7 in blocked punts, and #9 in blocked kicks.
Our rushing game is much better than our numbers, especially in the second half. We have a pre-season All-American running back (Marcuis Terry) who has been banged up all year. He went out in the first quarter of our last game but I think that was a precaution and expect him to play Saturday. We have a very balanced offense that will take what the defense gives us.
I expect our game to be one of the better ones to watch in the first round. Iím hoping for a good hard fought injure free game. Here is a link to our fan forum

Welcome!!

I did not know your running back was that talented, though I stand by my comments on the defense. I'm curious how a team can lead the nation in interceptions, while also being last in the country (or very close) in passing yards allowed. Unless most of your interceptions are in the redzone, that's quite the feat!   

I will admit you guys have a very good offense. Santacaterina is an FBS transfer from NIU who saw the field there, and is now lighting it up in the OVC. I have no doubt in your team's ability to move the football. SBU is 10th nationally in scoring defense, so the match-up of your offense against our defense will be what defines the game.

As far as our offense goes, I'm excited to see what happens when the Long Island Express comes to town. Liotine has over 1100 yards on the season, and Gowins has almost 1000 himself. They'd both be over 1000 yards, but Gowins missed a game due to injury. Both run behind a big offensive line that averages 314lbs up front. I somewhat expect this one to be a shootout as both offenses move the ball down field, though through primarily different means. That would be fun as we don't often find ourselves in that kind of game.  I understand this is your first home playoff game, so enjoy it. Go Seawolves!

Game time weather is sunny with temp. expected to be 60 degrees with 60% humidity (that's very low humidity for our area) high single digit wind. A perfect day for football. As our head coach would say "it's time to get it on". Here's to a hard fought injury free game for both teams.

Awesome start defensively. Three and out to begin with a sack already.

Great drive killed by Carbone fumble. Brutal.

He clearly didn't know whether to keep it or hand it off and sure enough it causes a turnover. Don't need that against a team that forces enough of those on their own.

Defensive struggle so far at the end of the first quarter. I expected more offense in general, but this kind of game favors us and there was that fumble when we were moving the ball in their territory. We've shut down their run game so far and when Santacateria throws he's constantly under pressure which is great. This is happening while only rushing 3-4 guys too which is another great sign.

We just need to move the ball better offensively. We're a second half team offensively, so it'll be a struggle until we (hopefully) pull away in the second.

Saw a virtually identical fumble/turnover on the exchange during the Delaware game. itís unfortunate to be having these kind of unforced turnovers  this late in the season. All you can do is shake it off and get back at it.

Our defense will bail us out like it has all year. We'd be in Albany's shoes if we didn't have such a good defense.

The first pick was tipped, fine...

But that last one is on Carbone. Wildly inaccurate ball.
