  2. 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.

    Athletic Department Ideas/Suggestions

    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?

    Wonder if TV is a part of this series?

    What we're missing

    One thing we absolutely do NOT need is more shooters. We have a roster of shooters. What we need is a few MAKERS.

    This is not a productive thread, as it is inherently negative. That being said, I would offer the following as additional, epic, regular season losses; 2016 at Dartmouth < loss on the road to non-scholarship program 2014 vs Central Connecticut State < 1st home game after FCS Championship Game appearance & loss to head coach in his 1st game as head coach of reduced scholarship 2012 vs Old Dominion < 11 point home loss, where best player in program history had altercation w/ head coach and walked off the field
  12. It's November. Little we see right now will resemble what we see on the could in 6 weeks, much less 3.5 months from now.
  13. Don Metil may be one of the best coaches on campus, along with the lacrosses, track and field, and women's hoops. Now, if we can only put some much needed resources into the Field Hockey Program... things would really take off. "This is the Golden Age of Towson Athletics" Towson2006
  14. Good Lord. You are arguing league ratings on November 24. You need to go get a drink and go to bed.
  15. Here's the difference... KENTUCKY is a Blue Blood Basketball Program and competes in a league that can get multiple at-large bids, so yes, it's 100% different than Towson and the one-bid league CAA.

    How embarrassing

    Playoffs? Cue Brother 2012 and his rant about RA's record without T-West, Rap's Rising Star, on the field
  17. No one makes the NCAA Tournament in March from the CAA by games they win in November. This is a 100% proven fact. The CAA is a weak league and is not getting an at-large bid. The way people whine and whimper about pre Thanksgiving losses could make a less learned observer think that Towson had actually made a postseason appearance since the George H W Bush Administration. But if it helps you to get your undies in a bunch over such then enjoy the shared misery. It's funny to watch. All that being true, the loss to Buffalo was brutal.

    How embarrassing

    As bad as the basketball and football choke jobs were this past weekend this thread is the most embarrassing of all. From the Chicken Little posts that the apocalypse is near to Professor Know It All coming in for his thrice-a-semester appearance telling us about the "Golden Age" of Athletics being now. Talk about massive disconnects. Here's the scoop, RA is not getting fired. PS is not getting fired. TL is not getting fired. Football did not make the playoffs this year and will not make the playoffs next year with a new QB at the helm. No on is on the roster now who is 1/2 as good as Flacco. Men's Basketball is not going to the NCAA or NIT this year. Skerry has 5 more years on his contract. Learn to love it cause it ain't changing. But since Volleyball and Women's Basketball are going gangbusters, and Field Hockey has their own field, we should all be content.

    Head to Head: Hens and Tigers

    Pretty stark looking numbers here... Delaware & Towson are solidly MIDDLE OF THE PACK in terms of CAA Games Only Statistics. Fairly depressing.

    No. 2 JMU rolls over No. 17 Towson, 27-10

    I agree with above that it serves no purpose to repeatedly call for the change in a coach after this season as it will never happen. It would not surprise me to see Ambrose look for a OC job in Power 5 after this season as missing the playoffs again, in 2020, could mean that he gets punted. Per the CAA Coaches, Ambrose's record is pretty weak in comparison to the group. Pretty damn weak. Wait for it... it's coming... the excuse parade of injuries (everybody has them) & bad budget (fake news).

    Towson @ JMU

    3 losses now in the CAA mean we are not going to the playoffs, again, which is no big loss in that we would lose major dollars if we hosted a game anyway. To borrow a theme from TU2012, we have never won a playoff game without Terrance West in the backfield. Is it Lacrosse season yet?

    Bucknell Preview

    Truly, what would change if Towson Football was 6-1 instead of 4-3? Would big numbers of people really be showing up? Would media coverage be more demonstrative? Would high school students be saying they want to come to Towson? Would more alumni be donating money to athletics? It's third tier small college football in a pro football city with two FBS football teams already active in the state, and that hierarchy is never, ever changing. Ravens, Terps, Mids, and everyone else.

    Marketing

    Convenient that you choose to dodge the details... would love to hear more about the intangible benefits to having a football team and hear how this balances out the $8.5+ million in annual expenses?

    Marketing

    I was referring to every game, not one specific event. Towson Football is irrelevant. Students don't care. Alumni don't care. Population of Baltimore doesn't care. Is your assertion that 95% of college athletics does not make money your best argument for keeping the $8.5 million dollar football program intact which brings in less than $750,000 gross a year? I'll do you one better, in that there is not a single program in FCS that turns a profit, not even NDSU. FCS Football is a complete and total waste of time and resources for a school that has declining enrollment and budget challenges in the main mission of the University, which is academics. So, Towson would be better off scrapping the football program, reducing the student athletics fee by 50%, and being better stewards of the budget dollars that they have since funds are obviously not coming into athletics from alumni giving.
