    Funny how everybody says "PS is a great guy, but blah, blah, blah" Maybe he is and maybe he isn't. you only know him from afar, but that is neither here nor there. You don't get an extension for being a great guy, just like you don't get an extension for having a team get a 3.0 GPS. maybe you should....but you don't.....So talk about the stuff that matters. The teams have failed to perform at the moments that matter. That is all that matters. It is all that mattered when he got extensions based on numbers of wins....nothing to do with being a "great guy". Keep your eye on the ball......what's good for the goose is good for the gander. You don't need to soften the blow....other coaches have been fired for not winning and they have far less resources that PS. We don't need reasons...we don't need explanations...we need a new coach....period.

    I agree that whether or not he’s a good guy and has players with a 3.0 GPA isn’t relevant, in the world of D1 basketball. Whether these factors should be relevant is a topic for another day. Also agree we need a new coach. Unfortunately, we’re not getting a new coach until the end of the 2024-2025 season. The reality is quite simple-the university is not going to buy him out. No if’s ands or buts. It ain’t happening. It didn’t happen with Pat Kennedy and that was before covid wreaked havoc with the budget. There are no well heeled alum who are going to ride in and rescue us. I doubt anyone has 2 million dollars lying around like so much loose change under their couch cushions that they’re willing to buy Skerry out. So, other than grumbling about it for the next four years (which I will do from time-to-time, to vent my frustration) I’m out of scenarios in which we divest ourself of Skerry before his contract runs out, which is quite a depressing thought

    Playing in the Missouri Valley Conference (certainly better than the CAA) he avg’d 11ppg in 27mpg. Is he a savior? No. Is he more than a role player/bench piece for a bad team in the CAA? Almost assuredly

    Ugh, I hate this. We didn't finish near last in 3 point shooting or assists due to us being weak. This is one of my fundamental frustrations with Skerry. Loyola, Chicago is not rolling out a team full of brutes each night. It's like a car running out of gas and us solving the problem by putting air in the tires.....

    And this is what kills me about Skerry. Alex Thomas started over Gorham for us. So stupid - he should have started for us as a freshman.

    Wojo went 128-95 with Marquette. 2 Dances. Hate to beat a dead drum but 2012 was spot on. I know I know.. $$$$ etc. Watching this dance and knowing we have had a new arena etc. Pitiful results for Towson. Cut ties and next man up. Covid excuse doesn’t exist as you see coaches being fired across the board. We don’t make a move now and we set ourselves back even farther. I know I know I’m dreaming but if ever was the right time to make a change.. right now.

    Lack of leadership in the conference is appalling. Almost makes the crew running TU Athletics competent

    They didn’t play a game for 51 days.. but I’m guessing they won’t use that as an excuse like some. Man this thread has now exceeded my expectations 🤣🤣

    The P5’s are perfectly content with low-mid majors being their farm system. It’s a lazy way for P5’s to get better, at the expense of the low-mid majors. Why worry about recruiting high school kids when you can just sit back and go after low-mid major players who have a proven track record of success at the college level? And with the “sit-1” rule probably being done away with (if it already isn’t) it’s only going to get worse. This may rub some people the wrong way, but the players aren’t blameless either. Loyalty to the school that gave them a scholarship and a platform to showcase themselves often goes right out the window at the first opportunity to jump ship & play on a larger stage. If you’re a low-mid major, maybe the way to go is de-emphasize (not eliminate) recruiting high school players and instead focus more on getting transfers from P5/high-major programs who are transferring because they’re dissatisfied with a lack of playing time. Kind of ironic; the low-mid major kids with stars in their eyes passing the disillusioned P5/high-major kids in the transfer portal as they all look for their next, and in some cases, temporary pit stop. I’m reminded of this kid Pridgen, who after 1 year, is transferring from UNCW, after he transferred there after 1 year at Holy Cross. Next season he’ll be on his 3rd team in 3 years. As someone else said, it’s really like pro sports free agency, without the press conference announcing terms of the new contract.

    Exactly. But yes at Towson a 3.0 and being a nice guy gets you an extension. Just like hanging banners for “biggest ncaa turnaround” and community service champions

    I’m not renewing my season tickets next year. I know a few other that sit around me as well. Urge others to do the same

    Step back from the ledge. The last stop for the Skerry train isn’t until spring 2025, assuming he doesn’t get another contract extension before then

    I want Danny Manning. He will give us a discount. We need a miracle at Towson. Danny would be a perfect fit. Package deal. His son Evan follows him as an associate head coach. Let’s make this happen!!

    We’re only down 2 at the half, despite Elvin Hayes scoring 25 points so far

    This kid had a lot of D2 offers. He’s local, from Cecil County. If he does come here, they could play “Rock me Amadeus” every time he scores 😆 (Get it; Falco-Rock me Amadeus. It’s an 80’s music tie-in)

    Many thoughts and prayers going up for him and his family! Really hoping for a good outcome!

    Did anyone’s grandpa play with Kevin Clark? Or friends or cousins or sons play d3 with skerry or O’Connell? Unfortunately we used our family coach on the moto-parfait package. I personally think we should have held out and hired Cade Cunningham’s brother like ok state did

    Norfolk State beats Morgan State in MEAC title game, putting ex TU recruit JJ Mathews in the dance. Matthews is another vagabond, as he’s now on his 3rd school (TU, Ark State & now Norfolk State)

    Can we get some of our guys to enter it? Maybe even some of the staff too?
