    We just beat a team by 17 on the road, who had taken JMU to overtime, beat Villanova on the road, and we are nitpicking because we didn't win by more?? Really?? Half our starting secondary is injured, our best linebacker has been out since the first game, and our stud transfer D-lineman played like half a game before getting hurt. Oh, and our 1st team all-American running back/kick returner hasn't played since the first conference game of the year. There are two games left and this team is poised to make the playoffs. For once can the players get some credit for winning?? Who cares how many you win by. Especially on the road.

    My biggest concern with the athletic department is reaching the students. If they do not attend games, they will not come back as alumni and donate to the Athletic Department. The student crowds have really declined at the football games compared to the Terrence West years. There appears very little effort to promote the game to the students.

    How many times do I have to say this? It’s not a question of needing to win in a dominant fashion & then “hope” we get in. Let me try this one more time...Win Saturday (regardless of the score) and I Joe Willie Namath GUARANTEE we’re in. And we haven’t had “playoff history”???? What the ham sandwich was the 2013 National Championship game??? ENOUGH SAID ON THIS NON-ISSUE

    Most complete game of the season? Defense was outstanding throughout. That's the kind of game we've been needing to see. These guys have been playing pretty well since halftime of JMU and hopefully, we're peaking at the right time. Take care of Elon next week and hope we don't get screwed by the committee.

    Not sure where to start other than DAMN, that was a big opportunity that we missed out on as Florida was ripe for the taking and we just couldn't get over the hump. Offensively, I thought we worked really hard against that Gators defense and was able to find passes and were patient with what was given. I thought if we shot 45% or better, we'd have a chance. We shot 43.8%. I thought if we scaled back on turnovers, we'd be in good shape. We had 13 which is a touch above the average we've had in the first 3 games. Lost in the stats was a couple of key putback misses by Gray and I think Sanders in the last 3 minutes as well as having a rebound secured but we were falling out of bounds and it ended up going to a Gator. In games like this, one bounce here and there can be the major difference. Defensively, I thought they did an above-average job. It helped that Florida was still subpar from the 3-point line but they did hit a couple of big ones off of terrific ball movement when we doubleteamed Blackshear in the post. I was really surprised that Florida waited until the 10-minute mark of the 2nd half to really start pounding it down low. Sanders, Thompson, and Tunstall did really nice work on Blackshear throughout the entire game. And what we saw out of Sanders and Thompson is some of the potential that we hoped we'd see. That has to continue. Sanders had good control of his body after he got pulled in the first half, especially after the dumb moving screen on the post handoff. He was in much better position in the 2nd half and he was rewarded with not having to get serenaded by the Rowdy Reptiles with a left-right-left-right chant to the bench. Last possessions -- I'm always a proponent of looking to penetrate and if available, kick for an open look. On the first possession after Blackshear gave Florida the lead, we passed it around too much out front and Fobbs dribbled too much before hoisting. It's the same thing that happened against Kent State -- settling rather than trying to work something inside. And right now, he can't be shooting these shots unless it's off of a pass. Unfortunately, he felt like he was the guy that had to take the shots and it didn't work out. Down 4, you try to extend the game and get into the paint and instead, he's chucking up a 26-footer. Now, Florida did a really good job of cutting off any driving lanes and they made it really difficult to take it into the lane if that's what we wanted to do. But I'd hope someone like a Gray or a Betrand could find his way on a drive and maybe hit a 12 to 16-foot pullup. Personnel -- Only complaint would be I'd have had Dottin out there for the final 4 minutes rather than Gibson. The moment wasn't too big for Gibson but he wasn't having much success getting any sort of penetration and the way Dottin had played in this one, he could have slithered his way into the lane and found something. If Dottin's shot continues to work like it did tonite, that's going to be a giant weapon to have and I would love to see a Dottin/Gibson combo where you can have a lot of drive & kick for open looks. As for the naysayers and the haters out there, let's keep in mind that the other team is on scholarship too and we're not in the huddle when these things are drawn up. As much as I'd like to have seen us go to the basket, Florida also stepped it up defensively and they're bit a longer than what we're used to seeing. At least we got shots off and didn't kick it out of bounds or just toss it away. But rather than giving credit to the other team or crediting our guys for a terrific game and Skerry for a solid gameplan, some of you are going to continue your hard-line approach against the coaching staff and frankly, I'm getting f'ing sick of it. When some of you constantly use that as your go-to no matter what the sport, it lends credence to my belief that you don't know a damn thing about the sport you're commenting on and you're just looking to blame, bash, and complain. I'm certainly no expert but I at least understand there are two sides to every game and a number of you on here don't see that. You just want to push your agenda of getting a coach out of here. I truly enjoy the discourse on here and wish we'd have even more participation but there are a number of days when I wish there was an 'ignore' feature so some of the stuff could be muted. Rant done...On to Xavier next week. I hope that we can carry what we learned from tonite over to Charleston. If so, we might have a better result against X and maybe make a little bit of noise. Either way, the amount of chemistry and production these guys continue to get are going to pay dividends in conference season.

    I had brought this up in a thread a year or so ago and I think it deserves repeating. I look at a school like Grand Canyon. It's located in the middle of Phoenix, which is a hotbed of major league sports not to mention having Arizona State right down the street, and numerous other nightlife opportunities. Last year, they averaged almost 7200 fans for a school that has 20,000 on campus. They've only been D-1 for 6-7 years and yet, they've immediately built it into numerous sellouts and that's with playing a WAC (not whack/wack/whatever) schedule. So I'd say that our people should be taking a field trip to Phoenix (it's nice this time of year) and pick the brains of the GCU people and find out how they can attract such a large amount of people to their games.

    I think we win Saturday and get in! I’m torn however as our team has been road warriors playing better away than at home. Obviously it’s more fun to get a home playoff game, but having to travel wouldn’t be the worst thing. Cant look past elon, but this group CANT miss the playoffs! We are too talented and we better not get snubbed again. Put some respect on our name!

    That was a fun watch yesterday. Last time I saw that kind of effort against a power school was the Oregon State game on the road. Look.. we are Towson... always something seems to come.. no Howard this season. That being said I thought our defense looked so much better from past 2 seasons. I love seeing Neal on the bench and rubbing off some of his Spurs experience. Crazy that Gibson is Crowley’s nephew... Dan was a freshman same time as me and a winner. Charles Thompson is gonna be a good one. End of first half getting 3 stops and then no points on the offensive end really hurt us. 30-30 instead of maybe 34-30. And then the last minutes of game.. just didn’t run the right plays for Fobbs to get closer to the basket. We are way past moral victories as it is 2019 and we’ve been waiting since 1991. I’ve always loved Pat on the sidelines and the energy he brings. This is a solid 2019-20 team that better win 18 games or else. Again I enjoy all the comments. We are such a small group of fans that actually cares about Towson Basketball. I liked what I saw yesterday so I expect us to make a deep run in the CAA or else this season... Go Tigers!

    Well rumor has it he didn't get back on defense at some point during the game and was pulled. Hope this doesn't lead to him leaving the team or anything..

    All the names you listed proves skerry’s MO at the end of games. He’s too predictable and we don’t have a dominating player like that. Play what the defense gives you.

    Good effort. Bertrand really has a good chance to be a solid robin, now just have to get batman's shot going. Gibson struggled vs better athletes, but not sure if dottin is capable of a better offensive performance than he had tonight. Will be fine down low defensively all year if nakye is capable of not fouling like tonight. Two games in a row struggled to score down the stretch. Has a skerry set out of a timeout ever worked? Always ends up launching a wild 3. As mentioned not going to have a great ooc record but playing about 6 teams that would be favored to win CAA this year (kent, fl, xavier, buffalo/uconn?, 3rd charleston game, vermont, liberty). With Timberlake coming back and 9 strong should be favored for caa regular season title. Problem will always be skerry throws in a few home clunkers and end of game execution.

    They also need to do a better job of involving athletes into other student groups. Other than it being Temple, that game and szn had to have been where we saw the most students attending. That was when Benimon was an honorary member of a fraternity at the time. I was in a different fraternity but we had tons of mutual friends and Benimon and Four had friends outside of basketball which made students come and support. Get these players in front of student groups. Even just billboards or advertising their faces around campus. They need to increase their social recognition. I think building around players like Jason Gibson (future) and Victor (4 star USC transfer) is a good start

    Agreed, I know this has been mentioned but two back to back W's in elimination games. Credit where credit is due

    2 straight wins in elimination games. D may be a sieve sometimes, but 1 constant this season is they’ve come up with a lot of INT’s. Nice to get production on the ground from our RB’s. If we win out, we’re in the playoffs. On to Williamsburg

    They can clinch the regular season CAA Title with one more win or JMU loss.

    Bryn Athyn played Drexel last year. The final score...Drexel won 118-41. Tobias Howard is the player who’s image is featured on the season ticket holders tickets for tonight’s game

    One thing that might be an asterisk for the Homecoming attendance number is that Morgan State students made an effort to crash our (HBCU) homecoming tailgate so all the party goers in the parking lot were not all Towson students. Search towson homecoming on Twitter to see what i mean

    Great opening night win, no doubt about it. Apologies if this has already been discussed in recent postings leading up to the season, but are in agreement that it's a make-or-break season for Skerry? Make "The Big Dance" or find a new HC? Go Tigers!!
