    Sorry that I haven’t been around to chime in. I went to the game yesterday. I think what we all saw yesterday is exactly what we are at this point, Thats an unacceptable performance for the program . I don’t know what/when/if there is an answer for the 2021 season. I DO KNOW THIS! Nobody and I mean nobody, is taking this tougher than Rob Ambrose . Hehas been totally invested in this program since the day he became head coach. There is no one that cares more about the program than Rob. To say that there is “no accountability” in this program is a chickenshit comment. Since the day he took this job there has been nothing but accountability. Accountability, Intergrity and Familyhave been the cornerstone of Robs teams and his program. Obviously, things have gone sideways. Everyone is upset and there is a lot of criticism and finger pointing (rightly so). STOP THE CHICKENSHIT COMMENTS!

    Yeah. Flosports isn't allowing NDSU to broadcast the game in Fargo. Lots of bitching and complaining going on everywhere. Flosports needs to be dropped like a bad habit.

    Two years ago we had a winning record in the league. I'm not going to apologize for bringing up the positives. The fans can believe what they want to believe. This is a much better team. Does that mean title contender? I'm not going to pick them first, but not going to pick them last either. Yes, last year stunk in many ways. No Zane, no Solly, no Jakigh, No Victor, No Mims, No Cam Allen. All struggled big-time last season. A lot of these guys missed a ton of time due to all sorts of things (a lot I can't mention legally). So thinking that Cam Allen would not shoot 28% from the floor and 29.6% from the three-point line after shooting 39.6% from 3-point at Bakersfield. But even if he shot his average of around 35% and 34% 3pt. That was not enough. Terry Nolan? An upgrade whether he plays point or wing. Zane and Gibby played it last season He'll play mostly point. Gibby can now recover from the back surgery and play the 2, I assume off the bench. He's an upgrade due to his size (6-4, 190), his ability to defend (much better than Zane) and he is a natural born leader. Antonio Rizzuto (6-3, 210) isn't a great shooter, but he's competent at 36% career. Was an elite defender in the America East. Will that translate to the CAA? I think it will since there's not a huge difference anymore between the conferences. CAA is more athletic though. Curtis Holland? I think if he has healthy feet, he can help big-time as a shooter, but not sure we can count on that. Cam Holden? He's the key. He's the guy that can do things at the 4 we haven't seen before. Not just stretch the D, but also take it to the rack. Great rebounder at 6-5ish, 205. All these kids that left, I can throw them under the bus, but we all did for all the years that they played. It's not necessary. Some great kids there. But not a ton of talent and basketball skill. Another thing we've mentioned for years. Some guys are built like a tank and they played like that. At least these guys (I believe) can play. I don't think we have a superstar and that's why I'm reluctant to say we're title contenders. But I can say we will be pretty good. I do want to see them in the fall practice, because when I saw them in the summer about half the team was out due to injuries.

    There isn’t accountability within the program nor Athletic department. He literally can do what he wants and not get fired. Again, your involved with the team so there’s a certain level of black and gold colored glasses you wear. I think we all agree that he does care. That’s obvious. He played here. That’s always been Apparent and there is no question about that. He obviously isn’t trying to lose. Why would he?! He’s got a cushy ass job with zero pressure and unlimited security. But he’s not a good coach. He’s had plenty of time to prove otherwise. If a program can’t fire a coach with 1 year left on his contract, you have to question the feasibility of that program even existing. Is it worth a 4-7/5-6 low level football program?

    It’s my time to shine! No, none of those matches were upsets. Navy, Princeton, Loyola and FAU were all good wins, but at this point Towson is a top-50 team that should be beating most mid-majors. I was a little disappointed to see no Power-5 teams on the schedule this year. Not only do we have a quality team, but our track record against the P5 the last couple of years has been quite good. Overall, the non-conference schedule was weaker than it should’ve been for a team that was expected to be this strong going in to the year.

    Holy sh!t. We get it, he didn't have what it takes and you blame the coach. OK. He apparently has a bigger and better future that can't be disclosed, wink wink. I wish you luck. ...But don't forget to write up that "Coach X doesn't know what he's missing out on" speech for what ever fan board you happen upon in 10 months.

    No not this game thank god FLO Sports is such a sh$t show CAA better not renew that contract with them. Doesn’t help with exposure for any of the programs.

    So you wanted them to put a press release out about a walk-on running back who never plays who allegedly had child pornography? I disagree with a lot of things, but I don't think this should be out there.

    First and foremost, these are serious allegations and disgusting. But 1) he's not on the roster as of today (to be honest, I dont even know if he was on the 2021 roster before 9/16). So I would say actions have been taken pretty quickly 2) I wouldn't think this is someting that anyone knew about prior to 9/16. 3) The university, Rob or anyone can probably not comment legally so I am not sure what the Studen Union wants as an action.

    I agree AD no urgency... at all. Maybe something is happening behind the scenes but at least come out and address it honestly. "How Do we change that?" is definitely the most critical question. Also I hate to say it but after they banned tailgates (yes I know they have been "back") we haven't been productive to put it nicely. Broke all momentum.

    Earlier in this thread, somebody mentioned playing freshmen. We have two pretty good defensive players in 3* NT Kenjuan Manuel (6-1, 300) and 4* CB Shafeek Smith (5-10, 175). I didn't see a lot of them in camp, but after the San Diego State game (loss), we'll have seven games to go. We need to win every game and if a true freshman can help and he's legit in practice, it's time to play them. It's not conventional to play a true freshman nose guard, but if he has the size and strength to play some snaps, maybe it's time to at least get him some time. Same thing with Smith.

    If it gets to the point at the end of the year where a coach has one year left and he knows he's going to have difficulty in recruiting players due to his contract. He might look elsewhere at other positions. Not saying it will happen here. Just saying it's happened at other places.

    Looks like volleyball continues to be a bright spot in the Towson sports world. 12-0 in non conference play with just dropping 4 sets total.

    It now runs through the end of next season. You can be sure opposing coaches are telling HS kids we are trying to recruit that RA is a lame duck, and if they come to Towson, they might be out in the cold once a new coach takes over. So, expect a ton more disappointing/underperforming transfers next season. Or maybe we’ll just give RA a contract extension 😳

    There’s really not much to say. The final score belies the vast gap in talent between us and NDSU. I guess it’s a moral victory in the sense I thought we’d lose 52-0. The play calling is putrid. The sad thing is you know that RA, with all the FBS transfers he brought in, was trying to build this team specifically for tonight’s game and the game at the end of the season with JMU. Either his assessment of the talent of the transfers he brought in was woefully off mark, and/or he & his staff has failed miserably in coaching them up. Next week vs SDSU promises to be very, very ugly. After the bye following next week’s game, it’s time to move on from Ferguson (who won’t be back next season in any event) and use the last 7 games of the season to audition the other QB’s on the roster. Of course, there’s always the possibility Ambrose brings in a talented transfer QB in the off-season. Oh, wait, never mind

    Our football team suffers from the same problem as our basketball team....the head coaches are NOT head coaching material. Probably exceptional as assistants but in over their heads as head coaches at this level. Both are DIII level caliber head coaches......their recruiting, team prep, player development and in-game coaching decisions substantiate my claim.

    Incredible how unimaginative the play calling is. Not to mention predictable. When you’re outmanned, as we obviously are, why not at least try a gadget play? And another brilliant set of play calling down on the goal line, after the long kickoff return. It’s nothing short of infuriating

    What’s sad is that in his mind he thinks he’s doing an amazing job.

    I know a lot of football alumni are showing up for Coach A's celebration. Not that that really projects into total attendance, as its normally parents and alumni that show regularly. My daughter is a freshman and she told me her and her team mates are planning on going. But again, athletic teams support each other as well. Student turn out is dependent on weather and how hard core the police and SAFE lock down the parking lots. Which could be significant, factoring in the over reaction to the shooting a couple weeks ago. I think NDSU will fill their sections. 8-9K '12 predicted sounds good.

    They've been running commercials on 1057 the Fan for at least two weeks. I think they had some Youtube commercials as well. As for the field, I don't think Lumor plays. Collins is listed as the top corner on the depth chart, but that means very little. Not sure whether he plays. I think Okombi plays and I assume Reece plays OLB again for Lumor. If they don't set the edge this week, the Bison will run for over 300 yards.
