    I was there from 91-96’ and I have so many fond memories of Towson. Can’t mention them all but there was a professor who taught I want to say the Psychology of Sport.. Dave ? I believe. Such a fun class and I wish I could go back in time to relive a discussion or two that class had pre internet etc. Silence of the Lambs had previously come out so being a freshman in Tower A we were told that Hannibal Lector was roughly based on a multiple group of individuals one of which was housed at Shepherd Pratt Hospital at one time.. Lastly and this kinda shows our age etc. We had a small yet elegant theater on campus (? in which hall) but they would show movies that had just left the theater but not yet gotten to VHS or cable tv and it was usually a Saturday evening schedule and I remember seeing Rudy and various other flicks. Sliding down the hill next to the Towers when it snowed and seeing some students use their mattresses. I loved the dining hall food and being there when it was raining or snowing cause you could see all around in that fish bowl. Saw Peter Noon at the Towsontown Festival one year. Three Dog Night as well I believe. Being at the Louisville game and Denny Crum wearing his jacket etc. Walking back after in amazement that we had upset them. If only I could go back in time and take down more names of friends and acquaintances so I could find them on social media now and reconnect. My lasting memory is how many sincere good people went to Towson State that I trusted and always enjoyed interacting with. Special place in my eye.

    If Bay Area Tiger has reached this point, then the ship has truly sunk. BAT is the silver lining positive one on this board. The Bob is less than 30 minutes away from my house and I had no schedule conflicts and I had no desire to go to the game. Drexel is not too far away either and I do not anticipate heading to University City for that game either. Changes need to be made but it sounds like the only changes that can be made would be at the assistant level since PS contract still has years on it.

    Totally agree.. In September of this season, for the 1st time ever, I very nearly bought season tickets. From the Devon Boyd years thru PK era, I pretty much bought (home) game by game tickets despite it being more costly. But had I done so in 2022-23, I'd be holding tickets I not only couldn't sell, but that that I couldn't even GIVE them away!!!.. The first time I really recognized an individual player who was overhyped was coach Jaskulski's find, Torin Ragin in the late '90's. Despite a height of 6'-5" or 6-6, he was inserted as the starting center. His failure to live up to what had been expected wasn't so much the guy's fault, as he really tried. There have been many others.. But in '22-'23, having an entire TEAM that's fallen so far short of what was anticipated - I'm not sure there's been a failure of this magnitude in the last 33 years at least. Even at 6-0 last autumn, you could see the cracks in the wall.. I think if we stop and consider all that's unfolded, in hindsight expectations were too high. The loss of Nolan, Rizzuto and Gray had thrown the engine out of kilter; it damaged the reliability of this team. The new parts just couldn't fill the old shoes, certainly not consistently. Then Gibby went down followed by Hicks, soon followed by Cam, and so we shouldn't be surprised at the current state of affairs. From Jaskulski to Hunt to PK to PS, there's been great moments sprinkled throughout, but mostly an unforgivable consistency of failure with the MBb teams since 1997..

    By the time Skerry is gone, there won’t be airplanes anymore. We’ll all be getting around in jet hovercrafts, like on the Jetsons

    I urge you all to google his Q & A from December 9th with pressboxonline.com He’s been through a lot losing his coach. I want to see him return and finish out this season. Not making excuses but post Covid has affected many college age kids in various ways. He’s emotional guy and reminds me a bit of Draymond Green. We need to cut him some slack for now

    PS calls you Matty and he obviously has read our recent comments or someone has relayed to him. I’ll take the win however that was an odd postgame from PS with the “Towson Way” nonsense. He sounded Ambrose today. I’ll take the win as we can’t take any CAA win for granted. I’m irked by his comment about missing players for practices etc cause he makes it sound like this squad has been devastated by injuries and we’ve had very few. I sound like 2012 right now but it sounded like an excuse to me. Credit the 1800 in attendance for supporting this team.

    Good teams have to worry about trap games, we are not good.

    So you know what that means.. Work in the building next to it. Line was wild yesterday. Have been to a few when in the south. It’s regular chicken tenders, their sauce, crinkle fries, Texas toast and cole slaw. That’s the entirety of the menu. Give me zaxbys or bojangles instead

    Hmm. The theater inside the mini mall up from Borders Books? I remember!

    Dr. David Zang is I think who you were talking about. I had him as well as part of my Sports Management track. I was there from 1993-97. The Shepherd Pratt incident and the Louisville win are definitely things that resonate from my time there, as do the movies you are talking about. They also had cheap movies at the theater by Pizzeria Unos midway between campus and the Towsontown mall (I can't remember if they were 10 pm or midnight) that were cheap movies that were on there way out of the theater (I actually worked at that theater at one point). My friend was the sports anchor for TSTV, and I worked with him and one of the other posters on this board from the America East Basketball Tournament in 1996 where we interviewed Jay Wright (Hofstra), Mike Brey (Delaware) and all of the other coaches. We also covered the Towson-Drexel semifinal in 1995, which I still believe to this day ranks as one of the more talented, yet once-gain disappointing, Towson teams since I have followed the program.

    Stand by for his announcement that he’s elected to start immediately collecting his social security benefits, rather than deferring for a few more years

    In an age where we get so much information about a team it is puzzling that coach Skerry won’t discuss the status of Gibson’s injury and of Cam’s specific reason for being away from the team or did I miss his explanation? Just be honest and tell us if Jason has any chance of coming back later this season and what exactly Cam did or didn’t do to miss the last 3 games. Cause as a fan I’m getting more angry with our coach because he’s been acting like Larry Brown since this whole semi-collapse started.. “I gotta play some other guys” “Our Seniors have to play the bulk of the minutes” I like Pat but he’s been all over the place past month with his comments. Obviously we aren’t in the locker room to know exactly what is going on daily but if you clip together his post game comments with the Spiro weekly shows etc and he’s all over the place with this team I sense. He knew what he had coming back and who he was adding and yet we still look so thin in a transfer portal smorgasbord era. I know we will smack Monmouth at home to make us 3-2 at least and keep us afloat. That scene from Major League when Willy Mays Hayes gets picked off in the first game and the NY sports writers give Harry Doyle the blowjob gesture.. that is what it has been for us Towson State/Towson Unversity fans for 30+ years. I want to dance someday damn it.

    One thing to me that was evident is we really never found someone who could give us what Nolan Jr. did last year. He was experienced, didn't turn it over much, moved the ball around, and while he wasn't a go-to offensive option he could catch fire enough to do damage. There were some games last year where the ball moved on offense like I had never seen it move before at Towson. The shot distribution was spread out evenly, and even though we didn't have a go-to player we had a lot of very good options. In my mind, this made Thompson and Timberlake look better than they are. They are both really good role players, but we saw in 2020 that when asked to be focal points of the offense it is a little beyond their capabilities. What was great last year is when Timberlake caught fire or Thompson took over inside, it was in addition to other good things going on. Now it feels like even when Timberlake gets hot that is it. Same thing when Thompson does well. We have no diversity in our offense, and when we play good teams we have long droughts where we miss shots, and then do dumb things because we get frustrated. It is so easy to gameplan for offense, because there is just not much we can do. The only positives from the last few games is that we are not just rolling over in these games like we did against Navy, Northern Iowa and Bryant. That is a small consolation, because there are certain opponents on the road where we just aren't good enough talent wise. I do think Nygal Russel has been a suitable replacement for Rizzuto (probably a better all-around player, but not as good a shooter). I will also repeat that other than the return of players who probably aren't coming back, Christian May's development is the one tangible thing that can make this team better over the next month or so. However, that jump is probably not enough for any notable improvement overall. We don't have a true scorer and Timberlake is probably the only plus shooter on the court that can come close to getting his own show. Conway is a good shooter, but he needs the team offense to get him open to be effective. As others have said, right now we are probably behind the pecking order of Charleston, UNC-Wilmington, Delaware and Hofstra. If Hofstra comes in and beats us on Monday, that will be a pretty definitive statement that we are a full tier below those teams. If we can win that came at least we can hold out hope of trying to piece wins together against Delaware at home and maxing out as a 4-5 seed. Of course, that is way, way, way below the expectations we all had for this team.

    Anyone who refers to us as the "University of Towson" should immediately have their offer pulled. How little do you care to get that wrong?

    NT is not a d2 player. Instead he’s a guy who’s been playing D1 for what, 5-6 years now, who is maddeningly inconsistent. You never know if he’s going to give you 20+ points or a clunker. Simply not a recipe for sustained success. As for CT, so far this season he’s simply not as good as he was last season. That’s not a low blow, it’s just a fact. As for getting guys back, Holden has now been out for 3 games. Whatever his infraction was, if it was egregious enough to miss 3 games so far, just say he’s gone or bring him back, but stop dangling these statements about “might be getting 1 or 2 guys back soon.” Sorry, but I’m just tired of Skerry, but I know he’s not going anywhere. I’ve seen this movie for so many years & it always ends the same way.

    It would have been exceedingly difficult for either Cam or Gibson to have scored tonight 😆

    Remember the drama this past offseason over whether Holden was staying or going? “Should he stay or should he go now? If he stays there will be trouble, if he goes there will be double. So come on & let us know, will you stay or will you go”? Pepperidge Farm remembers

    You gotta love the mayor of Towson! Charles will be the king of Charles Street in fed hill out at the bars if he wins us the CAA tournament championship!
