    Richie is currently batting .326 in the majors with 4 rbis. 15-46 with 3 doubles, a steal and just 6 strikeouts. He’s been up and down a few times when Cleveland’s needed a player.

    Agreed. From a fan’s perspective, the focus should definitely be on the upcoming season. Of course, the coaching staff doesn’t have that same luxury

    The Savannah tournament could help make up for a very blah non-con slate. All depends on which teams they put us with. But teams are so scared to play mids who might be decent and they sure as heck won’t play them at their place. Loyola and Morgan are just laughable. They’re insignificant in the overall landscape.

    Yes we have a lot of returning talent and some marginal power teams might be scared to play us but this is a pitiful ooc schedule for a team with big expectations and so much experience

    Once again, it's time for some lists and I'll be sticking to D-1 (FCS). There were some very good players in D2 and D3 like Dan Dullea, Kurt Beathard, Theron Richards, Bret Rogers, and Ron Meehan. This list is easy for the first five but gets tougher after that. Remember, we've only been D1(AA) for about 35 years. 1)Dan Crowley (1991-94). I'm biased because I went to school with him, but DC had it all:rocket arm, good mobility and decent accuracy. He had a poor first season so that takes away the completion percentage. Towson's offense was run-first from 1992-93 because they had Tony Vinson and Brian McCarty. Helped the team go from 1-2 wins to 6 and then 8. Threw for 8,900 yards (2nd all-time) and still has the record for most TDs at 81. HOFer and played many years in the CFL in the 90s and early 2000s. Helped the program through a very difficult phase. 2)Sean Schaefer (2005-08). Schaef played in basically a run-and-shoot offense when Coach Phil Albert returned as OC. He is the all-time leader in yards (11,644), attempts (1,621), completions (1,044) and is a recent HOFer. Poised and very accurate. Gave the program a big boost in the Patriot League years. 3)Tom Flacco (2018-19). Transfer from Rutgers and Western Michigan who threw for 6,082 yards in two seasons. Threw for 3,251 yards in 2018, which is fourth all-time. Led the team in rushing with 742 yards in 2018, when the team made the playoffs (but lost to Duquesne). Very athletic and one of the fastest QBs at Towson, who also played baseball. 4)Grant Enders (2011-12). Transfer from Holy Cross and Lackawanna JC. who played two seasons, but should have been eligible for three. Threw for 4,423 yards (10th all-time), but also had the ability to run. Led CAA with a 153.7 pass efficiency rating in 2011. Ran for 1,002 yards and 11 TDs. Powerful runner that gave the team a ton of options on the ground along with Terrence West and Dom Booker. 5)Chris Goetz (1987-90). Got the team started through the 1-AA era. Is third all-time in passing yards with 7,882, third in completions, sixth in touchdowns (42) and third in attempts. Played with David Meggett for two seasons, but after that, the Tigers were limited in weapons and the line struggled. 6)Peter Athens (2009-13). Started six games as a freshman in 2009 before suffering a torn ACL against Delaware. Wound up playing lacrosse after sitting out 2019 as a medical redshirt. Sat behind Grant Enders from 2011-12 and then started the 2013 season. Threw for 3,461 yards with 19 TDs and 13 picks. Ran for 162 yards and two TDs and helped lead the team to a National Title appearance. 7)Joe Lee (1996-99). Lee only started in the 1999 season and boy what year it was. He threw for a school-record 4,168 yards with 20 touchdowns. Still ninth on the all-time list with 4,453 yards, but many wonder how many yards he could have thrown for had he started earlier. Wasn't very mobile, but was accurate and helped the Tigers compete in the early days of the Patriot League. 8)Kevin Smith (1995-98). Smith is fourth all-time with 7,746 yards and fifth in touchdowns with 45. Tough to judge those years because he came after Crowley when the program was going non-scholarship, so the competition was not great. He had some pretty good receivers with him in Shaun Ward and had a great receiver at running back in Jason Corle. 9)Connor Frazier (2012-15). Another athletic quarterback who stepped in for an injured Peter Athens in the FCS playoffs. Also played receiver. Took over as the starter in 2014 and 2015. Threw for 1,499 yards with nine passing TDs and ran for 475 yards with two TDs in 2014. Threw for 1,883 yards with 7 TDs in 2015 and ran for 387 yards with three TDs. 10)Jay Amer (2000-2003). This is a pick where I felt like I should have added D2s or shortened it to 8 or 9. Tough one here because he left the program in September of 2003 after starting 15 straight games. Did throw for 16 TDs in 2002 and had a rocket arm.

    It’ll be interesting to see just how many freshmen are onboarded, with the portal being what it is. Assuming 6 open ships, I still think 2 go to freshmen. I agree 3 is probably a stretch. That would still leave 4 spots for portal transfers

    Looks like we have been active this off season! Hopefully we get some firm commitments in this flaky era of transfer portal ncaa

    Here are my top 10 D-1 centers to play at Towson. This turned out to be an easier list than I thought but in our most successful era (1988-94) before now, we were a guard-oriented team. The difficulty I had was finding which order to put these bigs in. So I put more emphasis on defense, which is difficult to quantify on stats. 1)Charles Thompson (2019-current). Made second-team All-CAA in 2021-22 and All-Defensive team the last two seasons. Avg. 7.5 ppg and 5.5 rpg with 1.1bpg on 57% shooting. Strong defender, a bit undersized at 6-7, 245, but has 7-0 wingspan. Really came on last season as he averaged 10.8ppg, 6.7rpg and 1.6bpg on 60% shooting from the field. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/charles-thompson-5.html 2)John James (1990-94). All-time leading shotblocker. Didn't shoot a lot because the guards handled the scoring, but had a nice face-up game. Was just around 190 pounds at 6-8, but very long and had nice timing. Avg 6ppg, 6rpg and 2.1bpg on 49% shooting. His best year was a senior season when he averaged 9.3ppg, 7.7rpg and 2.7bpg. Helped lead the team to four conference titles (two tournament and two reg. season). https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/john-james-1.html 3)Dennard Abraham (2005-07). Juco transfer who had two pretty good years with Gary Neal. Avg. 11.6ppg and 6.3rpg on 46% shooting. Not great defensively. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/dennard-abraham-1.html 4)Braxton Dupree (2010-11). Maryland transfer averaged 12ppg and 7.9ppg with 1.3rpg. Played just one season. Shot just 48% from the field. Not a great defender, which is why I put Thompson above him. Should have done more at that size (6-8, 270). https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/braxton-dupree-1.html 5)Timahj Parker-Rivera (2012-16). Undersized big at 6-7, 225, but did play mostly center in his four-year career. Good leaper and offensive rebounder who averaged 5.7ppg and 5.2rpg with 1bpg. Shot 51% from the field. Limited offensively and struggled at the line (55%). https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/timajh-parker-rivera-1.html 6)Bilal Dixon (2012-13). Providence transfer. Avg 6.9ppg and 7.3 rpg (52% FG) for first winning team in 15 years. Was a key cog on that team as a rebounder, defender, and screen-setter. Played just one season. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/bilal-dixon-1.html 7)Nakye Sanders (2018-20). Big man with soft hands at 6-8, 250. Duquesne transfer. Avg. 8.7ppg, and 5.9rpg, shooting 51% from the field in two seasons at Towson. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/nayke-sanders-1.html 8)Greg McClinton (1982-86). Long defender at 6-9 who came on late in his career. Avg. 6.2ppg and 3.7rpg, but in senior season averaged 10.8ppg and 5.3rpg with 1.9bpg. Also shot 53% from the field. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/greg-mcclinton-2.html 9)Robert Nwankwo (2007-12). Former walk-on who became all-time leading rebounder. Also very good shotblocker (1.9per game). Second all-time leader. Did averaged 12.5ppg and 10.1rpg on the 1-31 team in 2011-12. Limited as a shooter, averaging 7.1ppg in his career but did make himself into a solid player. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/robert-nwankwo-1.html 10)Shaun Holtz (1998-01). Ended up transferring to Ole Miss in his final season where he played sparingly. Good shooter who averaged 9ppg and 4.7rpg. Shot 39% from the field and 28% from beyond the arc (44% from 2pg). Avg. 11.4ppg his final two seasons at Towson. Despite being 6-8, 250 was more of a finesse player. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/shaun-holtz-1.html

    It's that time again when there's little news before July and everyone likes lists (ok, some do). Let's start with my version of the top 10 point guards at Towson (Division I-only). Based on points per game, shooting %, assists, defense, and accolades. I know some guys were combo guards (Scooter Alexander to name one), but I'll stick with more full-time point guards. 1)Devin Boyd (1988-93). Nobody is remotely close. Avg. 17.2 ppg for his career, 3.8apg, 2.3spg. All-time leader in points, assists, and steals. TU HOF. ECC Player of the Year in 1990-91. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/devin-boyd-1.html 2)Marty Johnson (1986-88). Transfer from Richmond. Avg. 4.2 apg and 5.0apg in both seasons. Avg. 16.1ppg in two seasons and shot around 45%. Ranked second in the nation in steals per game with 4.1 in 1987-88. All-time leader in assists per game at 4.6. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/marty-johnson-2.html 3)Bill Leonard (1983-87). Played point most of his career until Marty Johnson transferred in. Avg. 13pg, 2.0 spg, and 3.2 apg. Shot 46% from the field. Three-point shot not added until his final season. TU HOF. 4)Jamaal Gilchrist (2002-04). Transfer from Texas A&M. I know he was more a combo guard his second season with Mike Green at the point. Avg. 11.4 points, 1.5 spg, 3.4 TPG, and 3.3 assists in two seasons at Towson. Shot 36% from 3-point range. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/jamaal-gilchrist-1.html 5)Mike Green (2003-05). What might have been. Wound up transferring to Butler and became an All-American. Avg. 10.2 ppg, 4.9apg, 4.4rpg and 1.7spg as a freshman. Made the All-Freshman team and then was moved to shooting guard the following season. Shot 38% from three-point range, but just 36% overall in his second season. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/mike-green-2.html 6)Jason Gibson (2019-current). More of a shooting guard, but has played mainly the point in three seasons. A 39% three-point shooter in his career. Avg. 9.2ppg and 2.2 apg. Just 1.4 turnovers per game. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/jason-gibson-1.html 7)Michael Keyes (1993-97). Avg. 7.9ppg, 1.3spg and 3.2apg. Shot 45% from the floor and 37% from 3-point range. Shot over 40% from three-point range in his first two seasons. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/bill-leonard-1.html 8)Jerome Hairston (2012-14). Another player who would have been listed a lot higher had he lasted more than one season and five games. Avg. 9.9ppg and 2.5apg as a freshman with 2.6 TPG. At 6-3, 190, had the size to be a difference-maker. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/jerome-hairston-1.html 9)Damon Cason (1995-2000). Injuries limited him early on. Only averaged 5.3ppg for his career, but as a 5th-year senior in 1999-2000, he averaged 8.8 points, 4.3 assists and 1.5 steals on 38% from 3-point range. His numbers went up when Marlin Wise (10 games) was ruled out for the season. He and Wise were teammates here and at Southern HS. Wise was the better athlete and both were good passers. But you had to wonder how his career would have unfolded had they just handed him the keys almost from the jump. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/damon-cason-1.html 10)Brian Allen (1999-03). Was considering Brian Starr here, because Brian Allen's turnover numbers are poor. In his junior year, he averaged 5.4 turnovers per game, but also averaged 5.3 assists that same season. Avg. 8.1ppg and shot 36% from three-point range, but shot just 32% his last two seasons. Talented player, who was inconsistent. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/brian-allen-1.html

    We had a pretty solid strength of schedule last year that helped boost our NET ranking. Ohio State, San Francisco, Monmouth, Pittsburgh (not good, but we tried), New Mexico (not good, but we tried), UNC Greensboro (not as the past, but usually very good), Kent State and Penn made up a solid schedule, and the fact that Navy was in the 60s in the RPI when we played them helped quite a bit too. I do think sometimes we have to be willing to swallow our pride and just go play a road game with no return against one or two good teams. I know 2020-21 was an awful year, but we did play Virginia, San Francisco, Buffalo and had Iona and Maryland on the schedule before COVID cancellations. At least the last two years Skerry has tried hard to create a challenge schedule. I expect this one to round and be decent when all is said and done. When we were playing non-D1 teams on top of all the locals in previous years that certainly made for a soft underbelly of the schedule. This Savannah tournament has the potential to have some pretty good opponents or some lousy ones depend on the matchup. I feel like we should always play Loyola, UMBC and Navy. It also feels like one of Coppin State and Morgan State should be on the schedule even though it is usually a low RPI game. I don't like playing both. I would also swap out one of the first three if Maryland would ever put us back on the schedule. I also like when we play either George Mason or George Washington, although both have not been very good recently.

    Local teams here all suck. Not worth playing. It’s not that their records are awful, their rpi/net are also bottom tier. The year Umbc beat uva we won fairly easily. The “it takes two to tango” line is just that. When we suck we can’t get anyone. When we are average we can’t get anyone. When we are good we can’t get anyone. Other schools do! What the hell are we doing wrong?! hard to believe that we can’t get a 2 for 1 with a mod to upper tier a10 team. Every year our ooc schedule is a joke. This was a year to schedule tough

    It is frustrating that "most of the big boys on the East Coast won't play us." I guess the teams that could "afford" to play us, not financially afford, but more so taking a chance of losing to us, and still being a basic lock for the tournament say Villanova, would rather take their open dates and play other ranked teams. The "bubble" type teams like say Rutgers, those are the type of teams that cannot afford an "L" against the Tigers. Rutgers losses to Lafayette at home and UMASS last season on the road are probably the reason they were in the First Four. It would be nice if we could somehow play top teams from high mid-majors but the risk there is just like the CAA you may think a team is going to be good and then they are not. This is not a true example of what I mean, but I think Albany was supposed to be better than they ended up last season. Hopefully down the road the New AD can use some of the relationships he built by working in the SEC to try and get a lower SEC school to do a home and home. The team should bring people to the SECU but besides that what team listed above gets anyone but the hardcore fan to come or even pay attention?
