    Towson Refunding Prorated Athletic Fee

    Where do you get $20? Try $499 per student, per semester. Athletics Fee The Athletics Fee supports 20 intercollegiate sports competing at the NCAA Division I level. TU Athletics belongs to the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) and is affiliated with the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC). All students are admitted free to all TU sporting events. A $499 per term Athletics Fee is assessed to all full-time undergraduate students taking 12 or more units. Undergraduate students taking less than 12 units are assessed $45 per unit up to a maximum of $499 per term for the Athletics Fee. Undergraduate students taking approved graduate-level courses are assessed $45 per graduate unit for the Athletics Fee. Towson Athletics Fee < Click for link

    Towson Refunding Prorated Athletic Fee

    I find it interesting that so few posters here seem to care about economics and Towson Athletics.

    2020 CAA season

    So you think Towson is more marketable because we're in a big tv market? It's doesn't really matter where you are located if no one cares about the program.Towson's season just got cancelled and there are not 15 unique responses on the topic on the only message board.

    2020 CAA season

    If you're a top level college player, why would you even play in the spring? The NFL Draft is April 29 – May 1, 2021 in Cleveland, Ohio, so if you're a projected early round pick why would you ever play a spring season? Some guys sit out bowl games now - extend that time frame out and there is 0 logic from an elite player perspective. A guy live Trevor Lawrence has likely played his last college game if there is no fall football.

    2020 CAA season

    The Ivy is different as they do not play in the playoffs and they march to their own drummer. CAA April only football is also not logical as that's 4 weeks. April 3-10-17-24. Even if you add in May 1-8-15 and you can only get in 7 games before the last day of classes on May 18 after which Athletics would have to pay for extra housing, food service, etc... 4 more weeks of regular season, then playoffs? Not going to happen for a non revenue generating NCAA Championship. The NCAA will not sponsor a playoff in FCS for 2020, or a spring 2021, so now you are just playing games to play games, adding up expenses and going deeper in the red. Good luck with that.

    FBS schools are not going to play FCS schools are there is no $$$ to pay them without fans in attendance, en masse. JMU does not want to be in FCS anymore and this is their chance to make a break for the door.

    2020 CAA season

    Outside of the families of the players, coaches and former players, plus 600 fans, no one really cares if Towson plays football or not. Students could care less, and that's backed up by their non attendance despite being given free admission for their hefty student fee paid to athletics. The CAA is a hoops league, and since VCU and Mason left, it's been a bad hoops league. One bid hell. Given that 7 of the 12 CAA Football schools are not in the league for other sports, you could well see the CAA dropping football altogether and letting a new entity pick up the torch. America East Football?
  8. Towson University will issue prorated refunds for housing, dining and parking charges, as well as the athletics fee and the auxiliary services fee. Towson will refund 51% of fees related to athletics, intramurals, student recreation, student activity, sustainability and student union operations. That would be half of $17.39 million coming in from student fees which makes up 69% of the budget. In other words, this could be as much as a $8,695,000 budget cut for Athletics for FY20. http://cafidatabase.knightcommission.org/fcs/towson-university#!quicktabs-tab-where_the_money-1 https://www.baltimoresun.com/coronavirus/bs-md-college-park-refunds-20200403-w5czosjnynedrmwx5mj7qf3y3e-story.html

    Early Signing Day Thread

    Welcome back to the discussion after taking 88 days off eTiger. You must have been busy getting ready for the Playoff Tailgate.

    Early Signing Day Thread

    Good lord, it's early signing day for the 3rd time ever. Chime back in come February. No one worth a damn would commit to an FCS school if they had a chance of going FBS. That's just common sense.

    100 posts and 4,700 views is what Maryland's page has in a day. It takes Towson 6 weeks. You're making the Towson2006 point here Mat. Save for the small group here, it's a pretty small circle of give a shit.

    Early Signing Day Thread

    Why would anyone commit early to Towson or any FCS program? If we had signed a big number today that would be settling for lower tier players. Anyone that commits to an FCS school in December has no legitimate prospects for signing at a upper level school, which means that they are lesser-than level talent. This is a poker game now a days, so the real time frame to watch for significant pops will be February signing day plus the week following. You gotta get lucky. T-West wasn't a signing day story... Time for RA to be a recruiter and work the magic.

    This is exactly the problem with Towson Athletics. When a, assistant professor, who self-proclaims to be active in the recruiting process, actually questions if winning really matters, it's tremendously revealing as to the vibe surrounding the program. Does the school really care? Should they really care? For all of the hysteria that comes from this board and the 4-5 dozen people who actually post, the reality is that in the big picture, no one on campus, save for the players, their girlfriends and the coaches really cares about winning or losing. Playing North Dakota State is nostalgic and perhaps significant in the FCS world, but that game is a likely Towson loss, as is the game the following week, cross-country, at San Diego State. If the CAA puts a tough game in there on September 11 following the September 4 opener at Morgan State, this could be a really rough start to the 2021 season. Tigers need to go 7-1 in the CAA or likely will be at home again in the playoffs. It's a name opponent, but none of the students who will be in school in 2021 will care about the 2013 National Championship rematch hype - to them, it's just another game against a FCS opponent. And the chance that NDSU is going to bring thousands of fans to this game is remote. Honest question... who is the head coach of Towson in 2021?
