    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. 😉

    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

    This 10000%. Vcu. Uncw. Charleston have this done. Coaches shouldn’t stay a mid major longer than 1.5 full recruiting classes

    If he becomes official at Louisville 4 of the current ACC coaches were from the CAA. I bet you can guess the two schools… lol

    I wasn’t trying to say I or anyone else is a bigger fan. If it came off that way, I apologize. Im fortunate enough to live close, in Baltimore (if you consider that fortunate 😂), and work in Towson, so it makes it easy for me to attend games and other events. I was calling out that poster who said to support the team. I do and always will even though I no longer support the coach. Seeing around 20 games in person a year and watch pretty much everyone on flo or whatever is different than some of the others who listen to spiro (lol) and comment after. Appreciate your post and there are lots of good points. We have hit our ceiling under skerry. It is and was time to move on. He did an overall good job but can’t do anymore. Always thought he would be a better Athletics administrator than coach. As tired as you and others on here may be of me repeating the same things, it goes both way and I tire of the lame excuses for pat. 361 other teams would have moved on by now, but not us.

    Not an apples to apples comparison because it’s football but even Nick Saban eventually relented and changed his offensive philosophy years ago to be more uptempo because he knew his offensive system was falling behind and becoming passe. The game had changed and evolved. Pat Skerry is a relic from yesteryear but he’s so enamored with his own philosophy and approach he’s willing to sabotage his own program’s success to try to prove it still works in today’s game. Tony Bennett got the wake up call last night…..meanwhile, Skerry is still asleep at the wheel.

    Slow paced offenses are a thing of the past. Virginia winning the title a few years back extended its lifespan a bit but it is time to move on. I'm looking at you TOWSON, Rutgers, VA. Bennett even was quoted post game "We've got to look at things, certainly, from a system standpoint."

    He's been to the dance now with 3 different schools in 7 years! "That's a strong ass offer" and impressive, even if he's a scumbag. Hey there a bunch of scumbag coaches in the tournament, Hurley, Scheyer, Gard, Becker, Byington, Izzo, Wade...

    Congrats to Stetson, Grambling, and Duquesne for punching their tickets to the Dance. For the Hatters and Tigers, it's their first time. For the Dukes, first time since 1977. That now leaves 59 D1 teams who either have never been to the Tournament or have a longer drought than we do.

    Yeah that’s wild. Real programs (all others out there besides you know..) will now begin their firing before the conference tournaments

    He prefers to focus on the losses so it gives him a reason to complain and call for firings.
