    Matt, thanks for the update. This team is going to be special!

    Second scrimmage update

    One thing I forgot to mention was that I was impressed with the play of Tristan Harris, the fourth-string quarterback. I loved his play-fakes and ability to run, even though he's coming off knee surgery and is now listed at 6-2, 220. Really not sure who the backup quarterback is right now, ok Stover, but Harris might be third-string. I like Jeff Miller but he just doesn't fit this offense at all. He's a big pocket passer in a world of dual-thread spread, read-option athletic qbs. Next year, if he's the starter, they'll have to go back to a more traditional offense.

    Second scrimmage update

    RA after the scrimmage: "We got the work we needed to get in. Everybody we needed to evaluate got evaluated. Thank God it was hot, we needed this so bad. We needed to grind through this. We're somewhere between 120- and 150 reps right now, which is what we needed. Hopefully, we escaped healthy." Defensively "We were ready to play but not ready to play through the entire game. We're not in the entire game shape. That will change. On secondary "We didn't let Tom run at all. We're forcing our guys to cover routes and forcing them to get open. That's what we need to be. That's an obvious level of improvement (covering receivers). On third corner "Going into it, it was Robert Javier. He is still the third corner. He should be back next week." On offensive line at center Cole can, Cassels can, Brown can. It will be one of those three and the other will be right guard. On scrimmage next week We need to be sharper. We're playing everybody, everywhere. Still throwing stuff against the wall and seeing if it sticks. By the time we get to next week, we'll do at lot less, but we need to be very sharp. On Jabari Rolled his foot on Friday. Nothing serious. Didn't need to play. On Daniel Thompson The way he's playing, his knowledge and skills, he hasn't even been here for less than a year. D'Ago Huter He's quicker than he's fast but he's fast enough. We spread the ball out to everybody. On DeBerry, Christian Dixon and Robert Heyward Dixon has had a great camp. Those three have had great camps. On Quashon Alexander The last four days, he's coming on. The stuff that he knows, he's coming along fast but has been slowly coming along.

    Second scrimmage update

    Before I get to the quotes from RA, just a few observations about Saturday's scrimmage. Some concerns about RT Darian Bryant (knee). Was on the sidelines limping. Also didn't see Jesus Gibbs, the 290-pound DT transfer from South Carolina. I think Bryant's injury is a bit more serious. Either way, Rob was not going to tell me specifics about either injury. Don't assume season-ending but not sure when. The good news is that DeMarcus Gilmore appears to be a solid huge 360-pound right tackle. Grzymkowski is almost back at left guard. Alex Desire has done a nice job in his place. He'll probably be the backup at left tackle and left guard. At center/right guard, it appears to be a competition between Brendan Cassells (6-3, 300), Brown Tuiasosopo (6-2, 315) and Cole Cheripko (6-4, 300). Brown was playing mainly center. They used him on the first team when they were in the red zone. They got down to the five and unfortunately, same ole crap. Two runs (Shane got dinged up on one), a third run to left from AP (Platt) and then Flacco was hurried on fourth down. Not sure what to say other than disappointed in the inside the 5 lack of being able to run the ball from the shotgun. No I-Formation. Some use of fullback (Luke Hamilton), but we are going to have to continue to work on running the ball inside. Not having a big back hurts though Yeedee was held out. He should be back for the regular season. Flacco wasn't running so that also took away the effectiveness of the running game in the red zoen. It's kind of like the Ravens when they play vanilla preseason offense and run the ball with defenses knowing Lamar isn't going to run (at least not on designed plays). Not saying Flacco is Lamar Jackson, but his running ability keys this spread offense. Take that away and well, you make him a pocket passer, where he's not bad but he's not as effective. Good news is that the defense has gotten a lot better. There are not as many open receivers running around as they did last year. No Jabari Allen (slight injury) but still, there should have been more open receivers. Good jobs by Gillette and Shuman. Robert Topps appears to be playing safety and cornerback, though Robert Javier (inj.) is expected to return next week as the third corner. I'm extremely high on him as some may have noticed. Steven Brown, the juco transfer safety, looked very good at strong safety. Sure tackler. Jamal Gay starts at one safety and either Topps or Brown at the other. Up front, with Gibbs out, looks like they will be rotation of Bryce Carter, Tibo, Gyeni, Vinny Shafer, Marcus Bowman and Q. Alexander. Was impressed with Bryce Lauer (6-3, 275), who has put on about 30 pounds in the offseason. I think what we lack is a dominant defensive tackle and that could be Gibbs if he can get on the field. But overall, impressed with the defense early on but they probably tired at the end as the heat (90+) was getting to them. Nice to see Ricky DeBerry flying around at inside linebacker. He and Robert Heyward should be one of the top inside duos in the league. Not quite as sure about Malik Tyne and Keon Paye at outside linebacker. Tyne (6-3, 250) is big and athletic but has never really done it consistently. New DC Daniels still trying to find the right combination. At receiver, Daniel Thompson is pushing for that third spot. Had a nice touchdown catch late in the scrimmage where he beat Topps in the corner. I ike Ryan Rutkowski but more as a fourth or fifth receiver and I did love the kid two years ago. Has to be more aggressive at going after the ball and not just letting it come to him. Either said than done, but he's a possession guy. Has to catch the short passes. Sort of like Gallahan, who eventually grew into his role. Thompson has a chance to be special. Darian Street has more explosiveness. Just haven't seen him make enough plays. D'Ago Hunter makes at least one big play every time he steps on the field. It's Leatherbur, Jabari Allen and Thompson/Street IMO. After that, Rutkowski, Hunter, Caleb Smith. J'Alen Elliott. Oh and the true freshman Charles Murphy is wearing Chris Greaves' number 10. He's going to be a lot better assuming he stays healthy and that was Greaves' big issue. Murphy's frame (6-2, 175) is the biggest worry right now. I think you play him four games and if he's ready to go physically and mentally, he needs to play in the rotation. If not, redshirt him and bulk him about 15 pounds. He's another special talent.

I was told by a person I would consider a pretty reliable source at a club tournament this weekend that there is another high profile coach not listed in this article pursuing the Navy job. If this person took the Navy job I could see Nadelen being a prime candidate for the position that vacates. I would hate to lose him, but from his perspective now may be a good time to go.

    Flacco at Towson Football Media Day

    I think the Wildcat was somewhat necessary last season, early in the year. Two years ago, he used oft-injured CJ Williams in that role and he got injured in the first drive against Morgan State. Last year, we struggled in short yardage and it wasn't the worst idea to use a 6-4, 220-pound backup quarterback in those situations. We didn't have a suitable fullback and our offensive line was not physical. Now, we have Luke Hamilton back and a bigger, stronger line. Wish we had a big back though other than 220-pound Yeedee, coming off surgery.
  15. TUTigers

    Flacco at Towson Football Media Day

    Looking forward to Rob as OC. Hopefully he took the Jammer Wildcat on 4th and 1 out of the playbook.
  16. On playing baseball "The mechanics of throwing and hitting a baseball, they correlate to throwing a football. My hips are in great shape right now. My arm is in great shape. It was great working on a different craft other than football, which I haven't done in five years. I'm pumped up to get back to football." On playing baseball and spring football "I was busy. I only missed 1-2 practices. Luckily, I'm close to getting my masters so I'm not too overwhelmed with my classes." How different is this summer compared to the last "It's just different where I just know everybody now. Everybody was meeting me last year. They welcomed me with open arms. This year, it's easier to get guys out to throw. They know what we're capable of. They know what we're working towards. Last year, there just a few guys out there. This year, there are more guys willing to work." On expectations "I really don't care. We're not happy with how the last season ended. That's going to be a good thing for us because we're hungry and it's aggravating. We have that chip on our shoulder." On what to work on offensively "Just have to get better in the red zone. Last year, we got the ball past the 50 a lot and got to the 30 and kind of stalled out. We have a great kicker in Aidan O'Neill but I don't want him to get as many kicks as he did last year. Hopefully, we're getting the ball in the end zone." On feeling of team "Everyone is excited. The offense, they are on their shit. They are doing well. We're getting better every day. The defense wants to show what they're capable of. They are itching to get out there." On new WRs They are going to be able to help us this year. Darrian Street can help. Daniel Thompson and Charles Murphy can help us have an even more dynamic offense.: On Rob being the OC It's different because he's running practice and wants the offense to do well. I joke with the defensive guys that it's their goal to get him pissed off and made after practice. During the season, it's going to be a little weird because he's on the sideline and last year, the OC was in the box. We'll see how that goes. We make adjustments because we had to and we had go grow and get better.

    2019 Game Predictions

    I’m predicated a run toward a National Championship.
  20. TuTigers2012

    2019 Game Predictions

    Ok, I'll play too. What if Delaware kicks it deep or just kicks it OOB? Sorry that I am not at SB practices, like you are, to see first hand how they are doing. I am giving my opinion on a game that we can certainly lose, because of a good defense, playing on the road, and in potential bad/cold weather, which we and other spread offenses struggle in. so 11-1 is your predection?
  21. Blounge

    2019 Game Predictions

    I like the sound of the ten and two Towson tigers. Only losing to the Gators and Dukes. But realistically we could drop games to Delaware and Maine shake out to around 8-4 and will be sweating it out for a playoff seed....again
  22. TSU88

    2019 Game Predictions

    Look, it’s a tough schedule. JMU & Maine on the road. Realistically, a split would be a coup. We’re obviously going to lose in the swamp. At Stony Brook will be no walk in the park, & Elon & Delaware aren’t cupcakes 🧁, even though those are home games. And, I still think Citadel, in the heat, on the road, with there triple option offense, is a potential trap game. I think 9-3 is best case scenario. Now, if all the stars align (no key injuries, big contributions by multiple newcomers, D generates pass rush & TO’s & gets off the field on 3rd downs) we could exceed that. Conversely, if we fall short in some of these areas, the record could be worse then 9-3, like 7-5 or 6-6. I’m hoping for the 9-3 or better.
  23. RundaPower

    2019 Game Predictions

    Ok, I’ll play. What if Brent doesn’t drop the Winning pass for a last second TD against UD? Maybe we get a seed and don’t have to play Duquesne 😊! Do you know which kid is replacing Carbone? They don’t have a transfer QB and the young kids they have had a rough Spring. Not addition by subtraction. That only works on Madden...Also, I guess you are forgetting that we put 450 yds of offense on them! That is their Defenses fault! Hmmm WM is not Bucknell in any way shape or form. WM tripped over themselves and still beat them 14-7 last year(1st game). Bucknell didn’t have 100yds of offense until late in the game. By the end of the season the Bison didn’t have a starter over 250 on defense last year.
  24. TuTigers2012

    2019 Game Predictions

    HAHAHAHAHHA. Well, I mean, if its the same as last year we will just go 8-4 and get smoked by Duquense again, right? Carbone wasnt a good QB, addition by subtraction. Not their Defense's fault a KR for a TD, and two fumbles inside their 25 lead to 17 points, Does 35-28 sound better to you? Elon's RB who played against is back. Their QB who started against is back to playing Defensive Back.. The new coach will be 11 games in by the time they come around. Looked at roster and I'll give you their offensive line will be a lot of R-Fr, but do have two that started all season last year back. WM was woefully out-manned last year against us, and they had a lead at half.

    I have one that ends Dec. 21. The quality is fine but I haven't really watched any other stuff on it other than Towson. Not sure if you can share passwords/username. I'm not flying the pom-poms for FloSports but if you like watching Towson on the road, buy it. It's worth the $12.50 a month or $96 a year or whatever it costs.
  26. mat1992

    Scouting report on TF

    Yeah, I agreed with most of it. Not throwing the ball away can be his worst detriment. I think he's better with the deep ball and I think playing baseball helped some. Made some strides in his mechanics and he gained some size. But didn't really see him throw any deep balls Saturday. For college, that's fine but for the pros, he definitely needs a bit more arm strength. Reminiscent of Trace McSorley, likely to be a career backup at best.
  27. RundaPower

    2019 Game Predictions

    Well, SB has essentially the same D as last year minus their top two players. They gave up 50 to us last year. How could they possibly hold us to 16pts? They also have a new qb and new OL. Logic would tell us that you are wrong here. Elon, lost RB and OT’s. on D they lost a bunch too. Also, new coach and the fact that we put up 45 on them last year leads us to you being very wrong here. Bucknell willl not be a trap game. They are woefully outmanned in every game they play and Joe Susan has been replaced by Cecccini (Valpo and Lehigh) Did you do any research while making these picks?
  28. TuTigers2012

    2019 Game Predictions

    Since its been talked about in a previous thread... what's everyone's best guesses on the seasons upcoming games.? @ Citadel (RV in some polls/#25) Triple option in the Charleston heat. They apparently have a decent QB who played after our meeting last year. W-35-27 NC Central- Offense gets revved up in home opener- W-41-20 @ Maine (#4/5)- Key game of the season. Win and we are going places, while a loss could sting. Thankful the game is in September and not November. Orono is FAR. No Ramon Jefferson, who killed us for 121 yards and 3 scores last year who was kicked off the team. They still return a very good defense. W- 24-23 (Last second O'Neil FG) Could very well go the other way Villanova (RV in some polls) Wildcats looking for revenge after last years beat-down. W-31-27 @ Florida (#5 FBS) Great defense, speed all over the place. Numerous 4 & 5 star recruits. Cash the check and remain injury free. L-45-10 BYE- Much better spot then where it was last year. Albany- Not great under the new coach, possibly the worst in CAA. First trip to Towson as a CAA member (Odd scheduling quirk) W-49-21 Bucknell- Trap game right before a showdown at JMU. Add in Homecoming, it will be closer than it should. W 27-17 @ JMU (#1/2) 6-20-1 all time vs the dirty dukes with a 1-12 record in Harrisonburg? Not expecting this to change, JMU is very strong this year L-49-24 Delaware (#22) The team who usually should win this game, usually doesn't and something screwy always goes on. After last years thrilling game, another one awaits. We always lose a few at home that maybe we shouldn't. This is one of those games. L-30-28 Delaware wins on a safety as time expires. @ Stony Brook (#26) This series is usually very competitive and from 2013-2016 every game was won by the road team. This trend picks back up this year as Flacco and the offense struggles on a cold rainy/windy day on Long Island L-22-16 @WM- The Tribe have been down for a few seasons but will right the ship under new coach Mike London. Just not this year.. Tigers take it down in Williamsburg W-34-20 Elon (#10/12) Phoenix were missing their QB and RB last year against us. Cheek should be back this year and something tells me they will not go 5-19 passing for 30 yards. Playoffs and possible seed on the line? Tigers have a let down on senior day at a near empty Unitas Stadium L 30-24 So I have 7-5 (4-4 CAA), which after the Colonials' stinker in the playoffs, leaves us on the outside looking in. The Maine, Delaware, SB and Elon games are all toss ups so we can very easily be 9-3 or 6-6.
