10.26.19 LIU @ CCSU

Post by Shoreline » Thu Oct 24, 2019 4:04 pm

Even Chief Brody knows we don't need a bigger boat for these sharks. Hopefully this will be another substantial victory with no injuries.

Crummy Game of the Week: 1-6 UCONN visits 1-6 UMASS. The Evil Empire's only victory was 24-21 over also 1-6 Wagner whose only win was over 0-6 LIU. UMASS's only win was a 37-29 struggle with 0-7 Akron. Its a shame that somebody has to win this game.

To steal a previously used analogy, the UC/UM game will be a pillow fight.

This is a "focus week". Time to show focus and pound an inferior opponent. Now is not the time to look ahead, buy the hype, or rest on our laurels. Time..to...eat...some...shark! (I can't say Blackbirds anymore :lol: )

Who are we playing anyway?
LIU has multiple campus', that we know. But LIU Brooklyn whom we play in MBB is the "Blackbirds" and they don't have a football team. LIU Post is the "Sharks" and they competed in football at the D2 level.
So could someone explain how they managed to put a D2 program into D1 without any transition period? Did they manage to find a loophole in NCAA regulations because both schools are actually the same school?
So when we play LIU in football it will be the Sharks, and when we play them in Basketball the Blackbirds?

And an interesting note is that LIU sports teams were originally called the.....Blue Devils, but then after they started playing with black uniforms the name was changed to Blackbirds.
see:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIU_Brooklyn_Blackbirds

So I guess tomorrow we will be playing the Long Island University Brooklyn Post Blackbird Sharks.

Basically, LIU-Brooklyn athletic department "absorbed" the LIU-Post athletic department. New newly combined athletic program then rebranded itself as " LIU Sharks"

Since the LIU-Booklyn athletic department was a D-I program, they just added football at the FCS level. They don't have to "transition" because LIU-POST basically ceased to exist.

So all the "new" sports at LIU are expansions of the existing DI program and not transfers from D-II.

I don't mind any of this, except the mascot change. Sharks is simply stupid and boring. Bland and PC. I wish they kept the unique moniker of Blackbirds.

Yeah, that Wiki page is superceeded by this one:


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIU_Sharks

The “Blue Devil” moniker is new to me. Never knew that.

Agreed JJ. The team name “BlackbIrds” actually has a bit of notoriety as their men’s soccer team has been very highly regarded in the past.

Not only am I not thrilled wit the “Sharks”, the colors kinda suck too but they may be the old LIU post colors.

Maybe the university president is a fan of “West Side Story” and Wagner can change their team name to the “Jets”.

:oops: Yes Sky I agree The new colors and logo look like clip art for a Sega Genesis computer team. It is bush league, crap done by people who have no sense if style or history.

Blackbirds were unique and as you pointed out had history in basketball and soccer. The newest Blackbirds logo and fonts they used were pretty good.

Post was green and yellow, so the new colors have no connection to either campus. Just dumb and I read most alumni hate the change.
