Canít argue with this on laxpower:

Although the Team got better after an embarrassing start (14 - 2 loss to Hofstra) another very disappointing year for SBU. It's been 6 years since SBU Made the NCAAs. Hard to believe with the crazy amount of Local Talent that this team is so bad. It's even more apparent considering what Spallina has done on the girls side. I've talk to many of his players and they just don't like playing for Nagle. I think it's time for a change. The Facilities and Value (1/2 the price of most schools) at SBU are awesome. Get the right coach and there is no question that they can do what Albany and the woman's team have done.

I totally agree. This is how I always felt about coach P  in football. Get the right coach and SB could be another James Madison.

With one more season left on coach P contract, and no extension was offered, its a do or die season for him. This team will either surprise us to the upside or be a bust. But I'll save the ranting for the football thread, not lax..

The laxpower post is on the money. Nagle has zero recruiting power on Long Island. LI kids know you do not get treated very well as a player on a Stonybrook squad with Nagle at the helm.  Being so close to the huge LI  talent pool works against Nagle. The kids know the environment he and Gibson have created. Most top level LI players do not even consider Stony brook. They all have heard the nightmare stories.

No other D1 program had 2 full days of running before the final game of the season. He just doesn't know what else to do or how to develop his talent on any level. He is so old school and as someone else said, the game has past him bye. He loses more recruiting ability each year. After the experience the upstate kids have had over the last few years, that talent pool has completely dried up as well.

He has talented Canadians who all seem to receive full or near full scholarships to attend. This is just not the way to sustain a talented team at the D1 level.

It is a shame because this team (other than at the X) has talent and can compete. They can be developed into
an excellent team. It will never happen with Nagle as the coach. He has proven time and time again he can't get the job done and he needs to go. This team needs a younger more progressive thinking coach that these talented young men want to play for. It would make all the difference in the world for these guys. They deserve better.

WOW!!! Well said. Maybe what SB Lax needs is a local coach who has strong ties to the Long Island recruiting pool, like Joe Spallina has.. A Div2 pr Div3 school from the area where a HC wants to make a name for himself..

I think Shawn will make the right move. It's time for a change in the coaching staff.

Nagle in principle was a good hire- local guy with DI credentials. However he just hasn't been able to take this program to where it needs to go. How much longer can they wait for him? There is some good young talent on this team and I want to see them develop with a new coaching staff.

Stony Brook should be a top 15 program nationally every year.

Disappointing end to the season but a lot to look forward to in the following years, we return nearly the whole team. Offensively, this could be one of the most talented groups we have had in years with most of our guys entering their junior seasons. On Attack, Haun is the quarterback of the offense he will take charge. Pair him with Walsh who is one of the best feeders in our conference and Kaschalk a great finisher and hustler and that is a super strong attack group. Midfield we have a ton of depth. Pickle is becoming an elite shooter and off ball player. White and Grippe are probably the two best dodging threats we have as no short stick is keeping up with them. VinGinhaven and Mccannell will have strong roles as well. On Defense we have Rees and Pugal to anchor down low with Bollinger in net. I like what I saw from Cassidy early this past year and we have O'Leary? as well. Faceoffs will be our biggest question mark this year we need to improve in that area. This team could easily win the America East next year but I am not sure it could be done with our current coaching staff. We will see though. Go Seawolves.

agreed.  we do better when we hold teams under 10.  we can help our defense by getting the ball more.  so figuring out the faceoff piece will go a long way- and i note, even just getting competitive (~45% or so) will be a marked improvement. 

hard to compete with UA; hardER when we don't have the ball.  ierlan's got two more seasons.

i also note we currently have 18 commitments, but no defensemen.  but we've got enough bodies: rees, pugal, cassidy, o'leary, trenkle, alejo, mcdonaugh, shephard, anderson, morris, junge.  some of which are playing LSM.
