    PAC-12 Basketball

    PAC-12 announces its basketball season is delayed until at least January, 2021. This effectively junks the OOC schedule of member schools. I wouldn’t be surprised if other conferences follow suit, which could result in no D1 OOC play, or maybe a truncated OOC schedule, limited to opponents within driving distance (there’s a slew of D1 OOC foes within driving distance of us). Get ready for the possibility of April or May madness

    Transfer Portal thread

    Smacks of a selfish, self-centered “me 1st” player. Addition by subtraction, if you ask me. Skeptical he’ll get his college degree; just using these schools to play ball. Some school will prostitute itself and bring him aboard though

    Why am I not shocked?

    Transfer Portal thread

    All due respect to the young man reads like using Covid as an excuse to get out. 24 minutes a game wasn’t enough!!? Albuquerque less safe other areas!?

    Nice video package on Caleb Smith

    Very impressive young man. I remember watching his father play -- he was a relentless, so the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

    I'm sure RA was supremely disappointed when the CAA pulled the plug, especially since so much effort had gone into working with the team/staff remotely and coming up with a plan to proceed. And then ... it's all gone. I wouldn't have known what to say either, or seen much point in it. My disappointment (apart from just missing out on games and cheering us on) is that we had a chance to be pretty good with Shane, DeBerry, and Ron Johnson all back, a very good o-line, some promising defenders, and Constantine. Now, at least some of those prospects for the coming season have all vanished, even if games are played in the spring. I fear the same way about b-ball, with Big Vic, the UAB transfer, and our returnees giving us reason to hope. Would be a real shame if that season falls by the wayside too.

    Well put, BK. I would also suggest that one of the reasons there are only a few replies to this thread in particular is the blatantly transparent animus the originator has towards the football program (and probably the basketball program as well). It’s a free country (sort of) & he’s entitled to his opinions, but, speaking for myself, I generally simply choose not to respond to his posts, which should not be misconstrued as a lack of interest on my part in the program, a sentiment I dare say is not unique to me. However, as a public service, I will endeavor to sum things up in my own inimitable style: there’s this pesky pandemic, which has resulted in cancellation of the football season. It’s highly questionable whether there will be a basketball season and/or spring football. Meanwhile, I’m comfortable in assuming that otherwise, the day-to-day affairs of the programs are going forward, even in the absence of bulletins to that effect. What else, rhetorically speaking, is there to know right now?

    I disagree and think a number of people will miss the team not playing this fall. I would assume RA has spoken to the most important people, the players, coaches, etc. Otherwise, I'm not overly concerned about statements from the Admin, etc. regarding football or any sports right now during this very crazy and fluid situation. I don't think it's unreasonable to sit and wait to see how shit plays out before making public statements. Look at Big 10 and Pac 12, they were all about going forward with football within conference and making alternative plans, but it was never going to happen. Everything is upside down. I'm not sure what kind of bubble you all live in, but there's a whole lot more pressing issues than whether Towson football or any football is played this fall. Millions of people are out of work and/or are working at reduced salaries wondering how they will make ends meet. People with children are worried whether their children will be safe at school this year and if they are not going to be in school, how will they work while also watching their children. Nobody cares about any sports right now. I'm a diehard Mets fan and have maybe watch 4 innings total this year. Sports of any kind is the last thing on my mind. I live in NYC and it's a fucking ghost town. Sorry, I just need to vent a little. Hope you all are well.

    A highlight video of a player not dunking/shooting 3s?!?! in the year 2020?? CRAZY. Looks like a good defender

    I thought the same thing. No release from them. As bad as the leadership is, this is a new situation and I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. Besides the players families, the band and some students who like to get drunk in the parking lot prior... not much else.

    Towson Refunding Prorated Athletic Fee

    Story on Delaware Athletics fee from June 2020 https://www.delawareonline.com/story/sports/2020/06/25/effort-improve-sports-teams-university-delaware-pays-more-than-most/5310993002/ Delaware receives 86.25% of its athletic funding from the university, ranking it ninth among the 230 Division I schools in the USA Today compilation. Among the eight ahead of Delaware was CAA rival Towson (87.17%).

    Towson Refunding Prorated Athletic Fee

    No chatter about Towson Football in the wake of the fall season being cancelled. No communication from TL or RA. Will anyone outside of the people on this board and the players/coaches actually miss the team not playing this season?

    And there it is....

    Depending on the state of the world at the time, start basketball on 2/1, just conference games, & have (mid-to-late) April madness

    And there it is....

    Junior Colleges here in NorCal have already said Men’s & Women’s 🏀 would start February 1st... that would seem like a more accurate time frame for All D1/D2/D3/NAIA basketball programs. Indoor sports a whole different issue now with Covid. I had the Covid Test back on July 29th. Swab went 10 long seconds down my throat and then another 10 long seconds up my nose.. super invasive and uncomfortable. Had my results within 8 hours but obviously not the case for most across the country. I’m truly living in a bubble here in crazy San Fran-sicko however I do think we have some of the best scientists in the country based here. I don’t see a vaccine until at least January and hence I can’t see indoor college sports starting until February.
  21. TSU88

    And there it is....

    Well, it’s unlikely there will be a vaccine in 90 days, which is when basketball would start. I have no clue if there’s going to be a basketball season, but, if there is, I wouldn’t be surprised if OOC games are junked, which would, at least for us, bump the start of the season back to late December/early January. I also don’t know about fans; even if they’re allowed (even on a limited basis) I doubt I’ll be attending this season. From my perspective, it’s riskier to go inside SECU than it would have been to go outdoors to a TU football game, where I could have distanced myself from other spectators fairly easily
  22. BoogerJ

    And there it is....

    If there is no vaccine, there is no NCAA basketball season, and there will be no spring football. The NCAA is not going to do a spring FCS Championship, and so any games played will be no more than exhibitions.
  23. Maharba10

    And there it is....

    Correct..limited is better than none. I'm hoping for the best. If we are still unable to play sports by the spring that will mean the entire country will have been on at least partial shut down for over a year. The implications of that will be far reaching and the last thing on our minds will be sports.
  24. mat1992

    And there it is....

    Just because you don't want it to happen, doesn't mean it's not going to happen. But that's par for the course. The CAA has been working on a plan. Maybe it's a shitty plan, maybe it's a decent one. Personally, I'm ok either way because spring sports will be playing. There should be a vaccine by then and if they can play, why not play for a limited schedule? Forget the playoffs and just play a CAA title game or play another conference in some sort of special FCS bowl game. A lot of schools who don't play football this season will end up cutting non-revenue sports. Right or wrong.
