    Steed could be the top recruit at least according to the rating system. Runs a 4.59 40. Good speed for the safety position. He's 5-11, 190 and a 3* who played in a tough league in Philly. I think he's a future starter. With good range as a free safety, ability to return punts and hands, he won't have to play right away with three starters returning in Tippett, SJ Brown and Jamal Gay. But he might be better. If he is, he should play. Forget the redshirt. Ubayd Steed – Safety – Neumann-Goretti H.S. – Philadelphia, Pa. Steed will join fellow Philadelphian Darian Bryant on the Tigers in 2020. Steed earned a place on the 2019 All-Catholic League First Team at defensive back, helping Neumann-Goretti to 11 victories and a place in the District 1/12 Class 3A state title game. Previous to his senior year, Steed led Northeast High to a trio of Public League 6A championships as a safety and running back. http://www.espn.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/player/_/id/238063/ubayd-steed http://www.hudl.com/v/2By3x0

    Folks can agree or disagree with TUTigers2012, but even his most ardent critics have to acknowledge his passion for TU sports, demonstrated not just by the volume of his posts, but putting his $ where his mouth his and attending games. Instead of sniping at each other, let’s focus on what happens on the court the next month. Trust me, they’ll be plenty time for recriminations afterwards, including probably some by me. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m a little surprised some people don’t acknowledge that sports message boards are full of overly optimistic and overly pessimistic opinions, which change from game-to-game. I bet when W&M was 6-0 in conference that folks on their board had the team in the dance & the coach as COY. Now, fast forward to them having lost 5 of the last 7 & I guarantee some of the same posters who had them dancing are now posting that they’re in danger of dropping into the play-in games. We don’t have an over abundance of passionate posters, & I don’t want to lose the ones we do

    1:30 left in the game and Gibson dribbling around for 20 seconds, then looks over at Skerry for a play 🙄. Loved the last minute with Betrand and everything going in. Defense needs to show up in Philly.

    Also 67-64 game with 3 left Brian takes an awful 3 pointer on a 3 on 3. Had momentum instead of driving it or getting a good look we settle for that garbage early in the shot clock. The basketball IQ from pat down to the players on this team is poor. And that’s me being nice. 10 years of players and they all are the same?! Hmm 🤔

    According to what I’ve seen online, this McElhaney kid had PWO offers from Ohio State, UVA & BC, for whatever that’s worth

    Regardless of of what you think the future holds, gotta admit this team has improved dramatically from start of year. Question is have we seen them peak? I hope not! But it’s been fun to watch as of late!

    I know, I'll definitely keep my day job when it comes to posting videos and pix, but I have some from tonight's ceremony for those oldsters who didn't make it. I put up a weak-ass video as well.

    Just published our CAA Power Rankings -- some ranks may surprise, others won't. What's undeniable is the incredible parity that exists in this year's CAA. Will the Tribe make it out of the regular season as the #1 team? It'll be tough. Check out the rankings below. Good luck the rest of the way, Tigers!

    A freshman grew up today. I think we all have seen glimmers of Gibson's potential throughout the season but one aspect or another wasn't working out, most of the time it being his shot. But today, that shot was falling and he became not just the #3 scorer that we've been getting to complement Fobbs and Betrand but he became THE crucial scorer. The distribution will come but today, we needed that scoring. Such an impressive job by the whole team to get off to that fast start and to get out on shooters and contest the 3-point line. Often, we've shook our heads in disgust at the number of 3's that opponents hit against us. Today, the opponents were the ones frustrated. When you're playing a team that you might be a bit overmatched by (Knight and Van Vliet being that mismatch), you need them to shoot poorly and you need to shoot well for it to go your way. We got that today. So as we hit the halfway point of the conference season, we're tied for 2nd. You could have gotten some really nice Vegas odds after the 3rd game of the conference season that we'd be in this spot. As mentioned earlier, they're doing it in many different ways and they've done well to adjust to the different styles that they've faced. The results from the rest of the conference over the last week or so shows that there's no invincible team and no invincible home court. Currently, we're the hottest team around and that desperately needs to continue with this week's homestand. Again, as I see it, take it game by game. It seems the players are getting more and more confident and I think that little Club Dub fun on Insta shows that mentally, they've really got the positive vibes brewing. Now, here's the challenge for those of you in the Athletic Department and especially, the Marketing people. You've got the students finally back on campus (gosh, I loved minimester) and you have the hottest team in conference playing a pair of home games this week. You have an anniversary celebration for the first NCAA Tournament team in school history. Get your asses out there on campus this week and spread the word like wildfire that there's a game on Thursday night and we need the place loud and packed. If we have crap crowds for these two upcoming games, that's a giant failure for the department as a whole.

    Believe I heard it correctly from Spiros in the postgame. That was the 5th straight conference win by 8 or more points by Towson.. never ever done before. Look the postgame celebration in the locker room via Instagram says it all. I love being proved wronged and keep doing it to us team. Play with that chip on your shoulders. Why can’t we dance come March!!?? Fun listen today as I thought when it was cut to 2 we were in big trouble. And last thing.. can we recruit another Philly!!?? Davis and now AB.. they come to play!!!

    The 5-11, 235-pounder from Fork Union HS. Missing link to the offense? He certainly has the size, the strength (535 squat, 395 bench), and the speed (4.51 40). After watching the video again, he can block. I wouldn't be surprised if they put him in the backfield with Shane or Kobe. He's really fast for his size. Decent hands. Legs are huge so he's not easy to tackle low. Or high. If he gets to the second level, he's either running you over or running past you. Prior to his year at Fork Union, Folley earned a trip to the VHSCA All-Star Game from Charlottesville High, earning over 1,000 rushing yards in three different seasons and combining for over 3,500 rushing yards and 57 touchdowns on the ground in his career. https://www.hudl.com/profile/13258474/Sabias-Folley http://www.hudl.com/video/3/13258474/5dca18555cb38e0d545f8bc8

    Dion Crews-Harris, a 6-0, 240-pound fullback from Dunbar HS Runs a 4.8 40. Was a very good DE snd ILB in HS as well. Benches 335. Squats 465. All of his highlights were on the defensive side of the ball. I guess his speed probably limits him as an ILB and not tall enough to be a DE/OLB. But had 934 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns so he can obviously run the ball. Certainly has the size to block. http://www.hudl.com/v/2CVyj2

    So, early signing day had just two players: WR Ty'Shaun Granger (6-1, 195), who is expected to be here in the spring. Also LB Daniel Raymond (6-0, 200) from Friendly HS. I think we'll add 4-5 freshmen and at least two transfers in the late signing period. Not counting a bunch of preferred walk-ons. I think we'll add a quarterback but more as PWO. So we know (hopefully) that RB Sabias Folley (5-11, 235) is coming. CB Charles Peeples (6-0, 190) a juco corner from California.We have the kicker Joshua Cupitt coming in. LB Michael Robinson from Ball State.

    Until we have a coach that plays to his personnel. More of the same. We are to athletic and deep to play passive on defense with no pressure. And to not press and spread it out. When they spread it out and play loose we score. Running nothing for 20 seconds and then running horns has not worked since Benimon and won’t work. Why did we shoot 14 threes in the first half?! Against an average and lose footed Delaware team. And most of them were Tunstall and gray threes (man that dude couldn’t shoot his way out of a paper bag) Bay Area I thought you said he was good?! Need 2 wins against d1 teams to avoid the play in game. Will it happen?

    I like him. Will get stronger and has 4.56 speed. Appears to be a faster Sam Gallahan. Most likely slot receiver.

    Good to hear. I got an email today asking me to renew my hoops season tickets for the 2019-20 season...🤣 Went out by mistake but still got a chuckle out of it.

    I did get a text this morning. They are giving T-shirts to the first 500 students Thursday and T-shirts to the first 500 fans on Saturday. Hey it's a start! Towerlight should be pumping these games up too.

    I said very similar things About Gibson early in the season. Sure he’s had some down moments. But he’s a freshman and being ssked to carry the load at PG. i see him doing nothing but progressing over the next couple years. Very good win. Not many saw this streak coming just three weeks ago. Including myself honestly. I felt they would get better, but might have seen more like 3-3 or possibly 4-2 coming.

    I think we'll find a Qb transfer after the spring, when more guys start heading into the transfer portal. I don't know if we have any interest in Jared Bernhardt, the Maryland lax player who wants to play quarterback. Pat Spencer did it in basketball and is playing well at Northwestern. But that's different. You can practice basketball in an empty gym and he also played in the summer leagues. He's a tremendous athlete. So is Bernhardt but without playing in a spring, it's going to difficult. And do you give a full scholarship to player who hasn't played since HS? I'd still be patient with an FBS transfer. If not, go the juco route. Nothing against Stover or Miller, but they HAVE to get a QB. It's a must. I love the RB addition but he's still just a freshman. I think we need to stay with a dual-threat QB, run some RPO and maybe even use Shane or Kobe in the slot. We have the weapons though I'd still like one more burner at WR to replace Leatherbury.
