MU football vs. Stonybrook/Predictions/comments

Below from the MU web site


HERE IS A LOOK AT THIS WEEKEND’S MATCHUP...
Monmouth enters into today’s game against Stony Brook with an 0-2 record for the first time since the 2002 season.
The Hawks return to the field after an idle week. Monmouth failed to get a win at home against Robert Morris on Sept. 8, falling to the Colonials 20-17 despite jumping out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Monmouth’s Dave Sinisi will be looking to extend his current scoring streak to 15 straight games against Stony Brook, while quarterback Brett Burke will be looking for his first career win under center.
For the second straight game Monmouth won the turnover battle, but it wasn’t enough as RMU’s Michael Walser booted a 36-yarder with seconds remaining to lift the Colonials to a three point win.
Stony Brook comes into today’s game with a 2-1 record after losing a 42-6 game against FCS powerhouse Youngstown State. The Seawolves are an Independent team after leaving the NEC this year. They will join the BIG SOUTH beginning next year.

My Pick: Stonybrook, 27-14. Seawolves have too many weapons. Monmouth needs to create turnovers to hang in there.

My record: 1-1.

I have to agree with you on SB finishing the game with more points than MU. I wish and cheer for the opposite outcome but the final will be SB 24 MU 10.
This is a learning year.
GO HAWKS !!!!!!

Tony,

Offensively it'all hang on Burke, especially if SBU brings up the safeties to stop Sanisi and dares Monmouth to throw.

Turns out two goal line turnovers doomed the Hawks. If the team that SBU played faces RMU now, Hawks win. Burk looked good in the second half, seemed to be connecting with the wideouts.
