    I was obviously wrong with my 9-2 stated prediction. I really thought 8-3 but decided to up the optimism one more notch. Either way, I thought we would make the playoffs and I was very off. I also realize in reading those older posts that I need to proofread my entries better before I submit them. My son is on the team, so I will definitely read the posts and add to them when I can but I will never write anything negative about any players or coaches. I think that would be inappropriate on my part. I know they tried hard and I respect our student athletes and all of the sacrifices they made this past season. Some people my find this weird, but a lot of parents don't talk a whole lot of football with their players during the season. The kids spend so much time with the program that we try to be a buffer and give them a mental break from football when we talk or grab dinner after a home game. Our job is to be positive and supportive. With that said, I respect everyone's opinions on the board and I always look forward to reading everything. The 2022 season starts this Sunday. Hard off-season training will be one of the keys to getting back to the playoffs.

    I was creeping on the Hofstra blogs to see what they had to say about the game. "Offensively, you cannot win games when you don't move the ball and don't move people, and when you're not shooting lights out and when you don't have guys who can score enough on their own. Towson plays together. They're a pleasure to watch. HU looks like its struggles for everything it gets. Way too much 1-on-1." Can't say I've seen that written about a TU team in a long time.

    I dont think that message is for idiots like us who follow every move. It's for the more casual person they're trying to convernt into idiots like us.

    back to the AD topic. any idea when they are going to start doing the first set of screening or even just laying out the criteria for the ideal candidate? to 88's point above the new AD needs to focus on that sentiment. It's a pretty tired take IMO. I never viewed Towson as a commuter school growing up in the DC area; I very much doubt all the kids from PA, Jersey and New York do. College park and Mason are suburbs of DC, yet both have athletic success at various levels. the point being there are plenty of schools in major metro areas that still create a connection to campus through athletics. Towson needs to stop trying to be 'Baltimore's this... Baltimore's that..' Realize that Baltimore as a whole isn't going to care and focus on the people who have a connection to the school. Just as a mind shift I'd love for people to start thinking of Towson as Maryland's....(pay a branding agency here - honestly anything but teachers college or affordable... no one likes to be called cheap)

    Thank you Bk&Gold, my son is Mark and yes I was hyped and optimistic that this team could make a run in the playoffs, in which I am not apologizing for. Parents should always support their sons and the team, and anybody with any sense should know that. Of course it is disappointing to not make the playoffs but I loved, going to the game, Ed’s gracious tail gaits, met some really neat people supporting and rooting for team. I wish coaches and team the best of luck! Mark is now not only a USD Alumni but also a Towson Alumni 4 life! Hope you all have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving.

    Nobody should be humiliated on this board, especially parents, for being overly optimistic before a season. It’s almost like you can’t show joy or optimism, or you will get ostracized/bullied to not to post again because you were wrong.

    This is such a difficult situation for Dan and the department as a whole that it is ahrd to imagine. As Interim, Dan has limited ability to go out on a limb. He is Interim at a time when the CAA has made itself a much weaker league by adding three team that no one really cares about. We will not draw one additional fan to SECU or Unitas Stadium by adding Stony Brook, Hampton and Monmouth. Most fans know that but it is hard to say that out loud. If Towson has any intention of being "Baltimore's College Team", the school needs to be a part of a conference that brings higher profile and more competitive teams here...year after year after year. If JMU from a one horse town of Harrisonburg, VCU from a smaller town and smaller TV Market of Richmond can move to more competitive conferences there is no reason to believe Towson can not do it with the correct leadership.....but that assumes that the goal is to be at a higher athletic level....a question that we can not answer at this point. I do think that this particular hire as AD will be the turning point in Towson Athletics for the foreseeable future. In my opinion, we need someone with Waddell's drive and foresight, but without his lunacy and lack of financial discipline, again, based on the ultimate goal of the university administration. Just a few passing thoughts.

    It would appear we control our own destiny, though philosophers would likely argue that, by its very definition, destiny cannot be controlled 😆. That being the case, let’s get a W on Saturday and fervently hope we get some help from either our good friends in Philly or Newark.

    There have been a lot of fun parts about this season, but maybe the most gratifying has been watching the development of Charles Thompson. I don't get to see many Towson games in-person, but I did go to the season-opener against George Washington in Thompson's freshman year. I was excited about what he could become after that game because of his athleticism and his motor. He has continued to develop a fairly steady rate, but the jump he has made this year has been incredible. He has been a big part of setting the tone for the physical play Towson has been bringing to these games recently and through the year, and he is putting up some great numbers (including 15 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks last night). Pat Skerry, the coaching staff and of course first and foremost Charles deserve a tremendous amount of credit for the progression he has made as a player. It feels like he is used in almost every other (at a minimum) half-court possession to play a two-man game with the guards that usually sets up other movements on offense. He is fun to watch and very easy to root for. According to the Towson record book, Kennell Jones holds the record for a .589 field goal percentage for a season. Thompson is shooting .613 (119-194) this season. I think CBS Sports gave these stats last night, but he is shooting .723 (55-76) with 17.2 ppg, 8.4 rpg and 2.4 blpg in the last seven games where we have gone 6-1 with wins at Delaware (9-3 at home), Hofstra (9-1 at home) and UNC-Wilmington (11-2 at home).

    Put a mortgage payment on the Tigers tonight. No way we don't cover. We are about to get started on the stretch run....

    The students were showing up in droves. Then a certain person decided to basically ban tailgating and put cops everywhere because of an accidents. It's never been the same since. Basketball is another story. I guess it's too far a walk.

    Yeah, we won but they were to bad teams. Jeez dude, do you ever enjoy a win?? You make a wet blanket just seem damp.

    What, I think, would be very helpful and give the fans a better understanding of what this is all about.....is a statement from the President stating what her goal is for Athletics. Just saying "we want to win in football and basketball" would be insufficient. A thorough statement regarding both the competitive and financial aspects of athletics is important. A statement regarding how athletics is to be a part of the entire university experience....as opposed to just being an independent section. A statement clearly defining what is expected of coaches in regard to competition, graduation, fundraising and behavior are all terribly significant. I hope we don't get a "behind closed doors" selection. We also have to realize the world we live in. In the world of sports in media, you notice the announcers/analysts/broadcasters.....there is always representatives of both genders, of all racial backgrounds and total diversity. I know we are not supposed to be talking politics here....and I hope this is not viewed in that light. Without saying if it is good, bad or indifferent, the trend is now toward female ADs, i.e. Delaware----William and Mary, etc. Facts are facts...so nothing should surprise us.......My only hope is that this is an open process, with the President making clear the ultimate goal.

    You gotta give credit the team fought hard til the end against an undefeated team. Our backups got some good experience and will hopefully grow up faster playing in this type of tournament. Loved seeing the towson tiger logo on live TV. Gotta be happy with the amount of free throws made and trips to the line. If only some of those gimme lay ups went in during the first half it could have been even closer. I liked the heart, grit, balls, but we still lack the brains at times lol stupid mistakes, bad looks, same ol song and dance. Wish we had all our guys but we'll see what the team has still in the tank tonight

    I think we need to look further south for the next AD. Pluck an assistant AD from an SEC or Sunbelt school who is ready to take the next step in the career as the top AD. We need someone who comes from a culture in which football is truly treated as the lifeblood of the athletic department, with men's hoops being a close second.

    Mark is one hell of a player - you should be very proud of him! I was super pumped he chose to play at Towson and he didnt disappoint. Best of luck to you both!

    Matt- 100% correct, I have actually felt bad for some of the parents on this board. Could definitely see why they would not want to continue posting. On another note, many of FBS transfers may have not worked out the way it was anticipated but I for one am real glad we got Mark Collins and SJ Brown (I know SJ wasn’t new this year) but they were fantastic for us on D. Wish we could keep them another year. There were some others that also did pretty well but those two really stood out to me.

    Agreed Towson should be looking to exit but I am afraid for what our AD and CAA commish concoct.

    Relying on a conference commissioner that introduced us to Flosports does not invoke a lot of confidence in the caa's future.
