    I think Towson should do another Zoom meeting about NIL for football and basketball to explain about giving to NIL. What it means and what's the difference between giving to TAF (Tiger Athletic Fund) and the TU Collective for NIL. From my understanding, these sponsors are mainly about giving these kids their products. There is not a ton of $$$ involved, but I don't know the exact details. In other words, we have to, for the current coach and future coach, to buck up and make payments towards NIL. I'm not saying pay something that you can't afford. I give a monthly/yearly fee in NIL for both sports because I want to do and I feel if I'm going to talk the talk, I better walk the walk. My understanding is that not everyone is on board with paying student-athletes. That's not even an assumption. It's the truth and I get it, but it's an arms race. If the few wealthy donors we have and the rest who can afford a modest amount, are not willing to give a nice sum for NIL, we're going to miss out on key transfers and will end up with the "meh" players we've added over the last two seasons (Jones, Tarke, Sulaiman, Sylla, Russell). I think what we have available is good enough to retain most of our young returners. https://towsontigers.com/feature/TowsonNIL?path=nil https://gohcollective.com/ https://gohcollective.doubleknot.com/registration/donate.aspx?activitykey=2973795

    The best parallel example to Skerry is Tod Kowalczyk at Toledo. I outlined this a couple weeks ago -- He's been there as long as Skerry has been here and Toledo has been the 1 seed in each of the last 4 MAC Tournaments. They've lost every time. Their tournament drought is longer than ours. And I read today that Kowalczyk is being talked about for the job at Utah State.

    I’m with 2012 & 88 now. Part of the New World Order for Towson Fans. I’m done with this coaching regime. Mr Optimistic no more. Zero confidence. I want change. This guy served and is counted. Time to pass the torch.

    Impossible to watch Oakland take down Kentucky and not realize why some of us so desperately want new leadership for Towson’s program to possibly improve our chances for a similar shot at glory. But hey, I should just be grateful we get our coveted 20 wins a year. 😉

    38-16 is equal to the Orioles dominating Spring Training....just something meaningless to talk about

    I think it would be pretty to find a coach of his caliber except I am not sure there is one who in 13 years has not been to a conference final. A half million for a guy who cant even get to a mediocre conferences finals is not one worth retaining.

    First of all, thank you for your financial donations. It is appreciated that you make that choice out of loyalty to the program. I can't argue with most of this, but I don't agree with propping yourself up as bigger fans than the rest of us. Everyone expresses fandom differently. I would probably have season tickets if I lived there, but I don't so I support them in a different way. What people do with their finances is their own business, and I don't view at as being bigger or better fans than others. I appreciate your call for a change and you have a lot of valid points, but it doesn't mean you are right, more knowledgeable or better informed than everyone else on here. There are a lot of different ways to run a program that can be successful. I actually agree that we may be hitting a point where there is not much room for improvement, however I think there are also arguments against that when you look at the last three years (I know that is slicing and dicing the argument that probably should be made over a longer time period). You also have to take into account that I believe there have been five presidents and three ADs since Skerry started. They will all have different views. Waddell hired him, Leonard extended him, and Eigonbrot has seen probably the best three-year stretch in this program's D-1 history since we actually made the NCAA Tournament. That doesn't mean it is good enough, but I think you all have a distorted view on how our AD should see things. He doesn't have the baggage the rest of us do. That doesn't mean we should hold back from expressing our disappointment. I have some of the same complaints and can't blame you for hitting a point where you are beyond frustrated, but I do think there are valid reasons for being supportive of Skerry too. I appreciate the different viewpoints on this board. It is the reason I still come here as an out-of-state fan. Also, anyone who is coming to this message board on a regular basis, which is generally an outdated way of doing this these days, deserves credit for being a pretty big fan of Towson. To rank where we all stand doesn't really make too much sense to me.

    3 outlier examples out of hundreds upon hundreds of coaches. Good things might come to an extremely small (see microscopic) group of coaches, but, with all due respect, that argument is weak tea. If you want to settle for 6-12 in the conference tournament, without ever having played in the title tournament game, god bless you. I’ve let the man work and support the F’ing team with yearly season tickets, TAF and NIL donor. If this is his best, his best ain’t good enough. Good grief. “Good things come to those who wait”? That’s the defense of this guy? If I wait much longer, I’ll be watching from behind the pearly gates (I hope) When does this ceaseless argument, from his small handful of supporters, about Pat Kennedy, have an expiration date!!! Unbelievable

    Citing James Jones in that list might be pushing it a little bit because it's the Ivy League. They'll fire a scientist for not producing a Nobel winner faster than they'll fire a basketball coach. Here's the last time each Ivy League school fired their basketball coach for on-court performance: Penn -- 2009 (Jerome Allen had some shady stuff going on and ended up getting a 15-year show cause from the NCAA) Princeton -- at least 1945 Columbia -- 2003 Cornell -- 2016 (contract not renewed) Yale -- at least 1947 Harvard -- 2007 Brown -- 2012 Dartmouth -- 2016

    Ugly wins are better than pretty losses. We'll take it 12-10 on the road in ugly, rainy conditions. Nilan struggled in the first half, but allowed just two goals in the second half. Fairfield with 19 turnovers, Towson with 16. The game changed late in the third quarter when Roussel finally went back to attack and they put him behind the goal. He found Villagomez for the layup and then he scored himself. Fairfield never recovered. Nilan had seven saves, most of them off his body. Not sure he's the answer, but defense also has to improve whomever is in net. Matt C. just 50% on face-offs, but won a few big ones in the second half. Fairfield and the rain held DeMaio to just 2 assists, Mikey W. with 3g, Villagomez with 2g, Webber 1, Mauer 1g, Chop 1, 2a, Duccomon 2g.

    Alabama is very good. But that was straight ugly by a legit league champion. Watching that game and Colorado, Florida it makes you question if Towson plays the same sport The decade plus losing streak continues. Too good for the PIG not good enough to win a game.

    Stayed up late and got the complete Nick experience. Makes a few shots early and FTs, struggles defensively and winds up in foul trouble. He sits early in the second half, scores some, gives up some, makes a late three, misses a front end of a one-and-one and then is fouled with KU up one on a block from behind that was no foul. But to his credit, he made both FTs. Was left open all night and it helped to have Dickinson back on the floor.

    Oakland has a player named Townsend, which is how some say Towson. Are we part of march?!

    No one said the PAC12 wasn't weak. Outside of the Top 3 in BE, that was weak as well. Colorado had better numbers than St Johns and Slick & Quick Rick

    I am Big East through and through, but outside of UConn, Marquette and Creighton that conference wasn't any better than the Pac-12. The Pitino act of being God's gift to basketball and feeling like he is owed a bid is BS. I have no doubt he will load up next year, and be a top 15-20 team, but he doesn't deserve to be there this year and the sour grapes routine of not accepting an NIT big is ridiculous. He doesn't have to do it, but to me you are spitting on the history of the tournament so you can get ahead of the NIL chase for a week or so. As much as it is annoying, he is probably right and the NIL movement shouldn't be allowed until the day after the National Title game.

    https://x.com/john_fanta/status/1769506722299732427?s=46&t=_ArGClX3XZ7EdROrGIJtmw conference tournaments do serve a purpose, for bid stealers! I’m in the same college basketball torture boat, my extended family is Dayton, Villanova, and Georgetown people.(at least Georgetown has been about on par with towson the last few years) oh an Penn state folk but that’s mainly football envy there
