    Yes the Charleston tournament is way better. No clue who is in the fort Myers one but Charleston is loaded. We are by far the worst team there. Funny (sad really) that we would take that schedule and their fans are upset with it

    Since it's a slow day, let me update you guys through my own depth chart. Still waiting on a few transfers to be officially committed on both lines. Still haven't heard of a big back coming so I guess it's going to be Yeedee for those tough yards. Kind of puzzling considering he and Shane are both seniors and you need depth at that spot. At right guard, they are still looking, the last I heard. One of the juco kids was on campus already and hasn't decided yet. Also hearing of potential additions on the D-line but again, nothing official. They also may add an OLB, which makes me wonder if they move Ricky DeBerry or Keon Paye inside. No Greaves and Brent Richardson not on the roster. Makes me wonder if they add another WR Late for depth or if talented 3* freshman Murphy plays right away. QB Flacco, Stover/Miller (still competing) RB Simpson, Young, Platt, Thaenrat (220+ now) FB Luke Hamilton (freshman who was injured last year) LT Garnett, Desire RT Darrian Bryant (Temple transfer), John Mullens (moved from DT) RG ????, Brendan Cassells LG Aaron Grzymkowski C Cole Cheripko TE Clark, Myles Wright, Jason Epps WR Leatherbury, Ryan Rutkowski WR J. Allen, Caleb Smith, D'Ago Hunter WR Darian Street, Ja'Len Elliott, Daniel Thompson (new 3/4 scheme) NG Vinnie Shaffer (D2 transfer), possible FBS transfer DE Bryce Carter (6-3, 270). Marcus Bowman (6-2, 270) DE Jesus Gibbs (6-4, 290), Tibo Debaille (6-3, 275) OLB Ricky DeBerry, Nygill Johnson Mantriel Reaves (6-2, 215, moved from safety) OLB Keon Paye, Malik Tyne, John Lambert ILB Chizrum Umunakwe (6-0, 220) ILB Robert Heyward, Christian Dixon S Coby Tippett, transfer?, Stanley Davis S Jamal Gay CB Terrell Gillette, Robert Javier CB Brandon Shuman, Troy Vincent, Jirhe Love

    At least she won a title to earn an extension......as opposed to a longer extension for an unnamed coach, whose extension was based on wins over Gallaudet, Rio Grande and NJIT not to mention Goucher! she clearly deserves an extension and significant raise!

    This is just a guess on my part, but maybe the poster is referring to Anthony Higgs, who is 6’8 & went to Perry Hall HS in Baltimore County. Higgs originally committed to Ole Miss, where he would have been a freshman last fall. However, he de-committed from Ole Miss & committed to Illinois. He never got on the court last season at Illinois, as he had some kind of injury (might have been a foot injury). Just recently, Higgs announced he was transferring out of Illinois. When he was in HS, Towson was one of the schools recruiting him. I have no inside information one way or the other as to whether Higgs is coming here. Also, I’m not sure he’d be eligible or not this fall.

    Again, slow summer topic. I want to go over future candidates for the Hall of Fame. I'll just stick to football, basketball, and lacrosse. If you want to throw in other sports, fine. Remember, they have to graduate and last played 10 years ago. I'll start the list with some obvious ones even if it's not 10 years and from what I heard, they all graduated but I don't know 100%. Let's face it. Some of these are politically motivated. If you were a borderline HOFer and gave a ton of $$$, I think you have a good shot of getting in. https://towsontigers.com/hof.aspx Football: DL Frank Beltre (2012) . He was named first-team all-Colonial Athletic Association his final two seasons. Spent 5 seasons in CFL. LB Brian Bradford (2008): 4th all-time in tackles. PD Moore (2004) just made it so Bradford should also be in. Both outstanding linebackers. WR Marcus Lee (2008): All-time leading receiver in receptions but just 6th all-time in yards. Tough call. QB Sean Schaefer (2008): Set most of the passing records. Tough to judge receivers that era because we were basically a run-and-shoot team. RB Darius Victor (2016): Third-all time leading rusher with 3,309 yards. Second-team All-CAA. RB Terrance West (2013*). Jerry Rice Award Winner for Top FCS Rookie. All-time leading rusher at Towson in just three seasons. Broke 4 NCAA FCS records. No-brainer assuming he graduated. I think you can make a great case for guys that played from 2011-13: DE Ryan Delaire (22.5 sacks in 2 years), S Jordan Dangerfield (first team All-CAA), CB Tye Smith (first and second team All-CAA), OT Eric Pike, C Doug Shaw, RT Randall Harris. Basketball (sadly, only definite in the last 20 years) F Jerrelle Benimon 2x CAA Player of the Year only other candidate is: Mike Morsell (2018): Finished seventh in program history with 1,523 points … Also ended ranked second in 3-point field goal attempts (459), third in 3-pointers made (150), fourth in starts (103) fifth in made free throws (335), sixth in free throw attempts (457) and sixth in program history in field goal attempts (1,218) … Three-time All-CAA honoree … MLax: Ryan Drenner and Joe Seider should be no-brainers but will have to wait about 9 years along with Zach Goodrich. How in the world is Brad Reppert (2002) not in? He is 10th in points and 10th in goals with 92. Part of one of the best attacks in school history with Ryan Obloj (who also could be in) and Kyle Campbell that went to final four. Also D Adam Baxter from that team should be in. How in the world is face-off man Justin Berry the only player from that Final Four team in the HOF (unless nobody graduated). Baxter was a 3rd team AA and a HM AA. Matt Clune (1998😞 Another terrific player with 185 points, still good for third all-time. Stunned that he's not in. Also had some great defensive short stick middies in Casey Cittadino, Jack Adams and Peter Mezzanotte. Dan Cocchi also not in which is shocking. He was a 2x HM All-American and one of the greatest LSM to ever play here. Adams a third team and second team AA. He's a no-brainer along with FOGO Alex Woodall in 10 years.

    There might be a negligible dip in percentages in the first year but it won't take long for players to adjust. There aren't too many out there who barely have their toes outside the line when they take 3's. I don't think 17 inches is going to make a giant difference as far as the quantity of shots taken. What it might end up doing is forcing teams who have to defend against those 3-point teams to come out far enough that it ends up opening more traffic lanes to the basket. In the good old days of the Princeton offense, I'm sure Pete Carril would be salivating at the opportunities a pushed-up defense would afford.

    I would say nearly every team in the CAA has those ifs with so many gone due to transfers and graduation. So while "next year" might seem to be our best chance of finally breaking through, I'm expecting a major improvement in 2019-20 due to several factors. Freshmen normally make their biggest improvements from the rookie to their sophomore seasons, the addition of Gray should be a solid addition (hopefully a lot better than Sanders) and Gibson. There are two huge keys for MBB and one starts at point guard with Gibson. The other is with Gray. Neither has to be great but they do need to be productive. I've given up on Sanders producing 12ppg though 7rpg is possible. He shouldn't even be guaranteed the center job. If Tunstall is strong enough to play the 5, go with him, though you lose some in offense. If Charles Thompson is legit as a freshman and that's probably asking too much, then he should at least play minutes. He's big, strong and has great length. Hell, maybe Solly, if as Skerry says "has had a great offseason", can be an undersized 5, may the best center win. I just think having a 6-8, 225-pound power forward who can face the basket and shoot is a luxury we haven't had in many years. Actually never. We've had power forwards who can shoot but they weren't that big. For example, Brian Barber was only about 6-6, 210 but was long and athletic. Lawrence Hamm was about the same size. Both could face and shoot it decently though neither was a huge three-point threat. Actually, Barber never made a 3 and Hamm was about a 28% shooter. Benimon was 6-8, 250 and basically an old-school power forward with point guard skills. Not saying Gray is remotely close to JB but he's different than Moto as well, who was shall we say an erratic shooter. I would take what Moto did in his junior season and that was 13.9ppg, 8.3rpg and 29.3% 3pt, 44% FG. I expect better shooting numbers from Gray but fewer rebounds. Well, a lot fewer as he only averaged 4.7rpg for his career in about 25mpg. His numbers below are not eye-popping but look at his conference numbers in 2017-18. Shot 51.7% from the field and 36% from 3pt in just 21mpg with 6.8ppg. Probably not even their third option. Now he'll be the second option most likely. The bigger concern is FT shooting, which was only about 60% in conference play but around 67% overall. He doesn't get there a lot but likely will now that he's going to be a major focus of the offense. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/juwan-gray-1.html I want to see these guys over the summer but watching drills won't be enough. I can basically see if guys like Timberlake and Betrand have gotten bigger and have improved their skill levels. Same with Dottin, who we know needs to shoot about 500 jumpers a day but also has to run the offense and manage the game better. I need to see them in October in 5x5. I've said this before about Timberlake. I want to see this kid come back (I know he's put on 12-14lbs), much more confident. If he's physically stronger, he should be able to put the ball on the floor and drive. We have him for four years. He can be as good as he wants because of his speed and leaping ability. I also think he can take some pressure of o Gibson because he has some PG instincts. The good thing is that we have many options up front. Not as many in the backcourt though I think having T.J. Howard at the 2 allows him to come off the bench at the 1 or 2, depending on Timberlake and Dottin's progress. But these are huge ifs. Very few proven players means a mid-level prediction. I really do want to see Gibson, Thompson and Gray play along with the two transfers and hope that Solly, Betrand, Timberlake and Dottin (or two of them) have made the next step.

    This could be a good get. Local kid who won 2 State championships, scored 1,500 points & was a State POY. Was recruited by legit programs like VCU. Went to Long Beach State & for whatever reason it didn’t click for him out there. Now he’ll have until November 2020 to hone his game & has 3 years of eligibility left. We’ll need someone to pick up the slack for Fobbs; hopefully Mims can be that guy.

    Pretty sure this position was started by Mike Waddell. I think the first guy that filled the position works for the Brooklyn Nets now. I hope he's done his research and knows that this is a challenging place to grow and sustain interest in the programs. Think outside the box. Best of luck to him.

    It’s unfortunate that Victor & Fobbs won’t play together. That’s why it’s imperative that the coaching staff use this last ship for the fall (or one of fall 2020’s 4 ships) to bring in a high volume scorer to succeed Fobbs. As to being an excuse for PS, truthfully, with his contract, he’s not going anywhere anyway. It’s way too early to prognosticate how we’ll do this fall, especially since it’s unclear if the remaining ship will go to someone who’s eligible this year or next. My suspicion is it will be the latter.

    You still didn't mention if that commitment is for a sit-out transfer or one that can play right away. I assume it's a sit-out from what I was told. And while I share some optimism, I really do not know until I see Gibson and the rest of the team over the summer and fall. How much did Solly improve? Can he show more of a face-up game? Did Dottin get a jumper and will he create more for others? Is Timberlake more assertive and is his shot more consistent? Can Betrand slow it down some and not rush things whenever he's on the court? Will Sanders still be foul-prone at center? Can Juwan Gray give us 12-14ppg and 6rpg at the 4 and some 3? If so, can Tunstall play some center without getting overpowered? Can Fobbs develop a right hand? Is Gibson strong enough to get around screens on D and can he run this team while managing the offense? Will will attempt to run more and not just play with one of the slowest paces in the nation? A lot of questions and yes, the league is going to be wide effing open.

    I look at this way. If you pay $12 or 13 a month, you better not be getting horrible camera angles, no audio, cameras not following the action, etc. If that money not just goes to FLO but also helps improve the professionalism of each school's network, I'm all for it. When it was free, it's difficult to complain.

    From the “you can’t make this stuff up” file. One of our coaches is following on twitter Alexis Antetokounmpo, a 6’7 HS guard in Wisconsin. If his last name sounds familiar, it is-he’s the younger brother of Giannis Antetokounmpo, AKA the Greek Freak, of the Milwaukee Bucks. Well, some years ago we did have Kevin Durant’s brother play for us, so why not the Greek Freak’s younger brother?

    The Gymnastics coach that was fired is now listed as the Head Coach on both the team page and the Staff Directory. She was not listed there for a while, but has been put back. Something odd going on here. It does not seem like a good situation for the department.
