    That's probably the best offer he could get in a P5/6. It will be interesting to see if he's as good as he thinks he is.

    Let's talk Towson Hall of Fame

    Both should be in by now. That 2001 team was one of the most overlooked squads and Tony Seaman helped put Towson lacrosse back on the map after a few off-years. I also think Reppert or Obloj should go in. Tim Langton is in off one great season in 1996 and earned first-team AA. He had 27 goals as a senior and 31 goals in his first three seasons.

    Let's talk Towson Hall of Fame

    Hey Spiro. Before my time but you're right about Burke. Some of the omissions are odd. I know you can't put everybody who was a good player in the HOF. They had to make a great impact. Looking at the lacrosse HOFers, there seems to be a ton of guys who should be in from the 80s and early 2000s. This has been our most consistently strong men's sport in the history of the program. It should be better represented. Three Final Fours in D1 and a national title in D2. How about nine conference tournament titles in D1? How about 21 freakin' NCAA Tournament appearances, including 15 in D1. So 27 MLax HOFers is not enough.

    Let's talk Towson Hall of Fame

    Damas is a good pick. Don’t think he has many accolades though but became a very good defender.
  5. Again, slow summer topic. I want to go over future candidates for the Hall of Fame. I'll just stick to football, basketball, and lacrosse. If you want to throw in other sports, fine. Remember, they have to graduate and last played 10 years ago. I'll start the list with some obvious ones even if it's not 10 years and from what I heard, they all graduated but I don't know 100%. Let's face it. Some of these are politically motivated. If you were a borderline HOFer and gave a ton of $$$, I think you have a good shot of getting in. https://towsontigers.com/hof.aspx Football: DL Frank Beltre (2012) . He was named first-team all-Colonial Athletic Association his final two seasons. Spent 5 seasons in CFL. LB Brian Bradford (2008): 4th all-time in tackles. PD Moore (2004) just made it so Bradford should also be in. Both outstanding linebackers. WR Marcus Lee (2008): All-time leading receiver in receptions but just 6th all-time in yards. Tough call. QB Sean Schaefer (2008): Set most of the passing records. Tough to judge receivers that era because we were basically a run-and-shoot team. RB Darius Victor (2016): Third-all time leading rusher with 3,309 yards. Second-team All-CAA. RB Terrance West (2013*). Jerry Rice Award Winner for Top FCS Rookie. All-time leading rusher at Towson in just three seasons. Broke 4 NCAA FCS records. No-brainer assuming he graduated. I think you can make a great case for guys that played from 2011-13: DE Ryan Delaire (22.5 sacks in 2 years), S Jordan Dangerfield (first team All-CAA), CB Tye Smith (first and second team All-CAA), OT Eric Pike, C Doug Shaw, RT Randall Harris. Basketball (sadly, only definite in the last 20 years) F Jerrelle Benimon 2x CAA Player of the Year only other candidate is: Mike Morsell (2018): Finished seventh in program history with 1,523 points … Also ended ranked second in 3-point field goal attempts (459), third in 3-pointers made (150), fourth in starts (103) fifth in made free throws (335), sixth in free throw attempts (457) and sixth in program history in field goal attempts (1,218) … Three-time All-CAA honoree … MLax: Ryan Drenner and Joe Seider should be no-brainers but will have to wait about 9 years along with Zach Goodrich. How in the world is Brad Reppert (2002) not in? He is 10th in points and 10th in goals with 92. Part of one of the best attacks in school history with Ryan Obloj (who also could be in) and Kyle Campbell that went to final four. Also D Adam Baxter from that team should be in. How in the world is face-off man Justin Berry the only player from that Final Four team in the HOF (unless nobody graduated). Baxter was a 3rd team AA and a HM AA. Matt Clune (1998😞 Another terrific player with 185 points, still good for third all-time. Stunned that he's not in. Also had some great defensive short stick middies in Casey Cittadino, Jack Adams and Peter Mezzanotte. Dan Cocchi also not in which is shocking. He was a 2x HM All-American and one of the greatest LSM to ever play here. Adams a third team and second team AA. He's a no-brainer along with FOGO Alex Woodall in 10 years.

    Football update

    For example, I'm looking at last year's depth chart for the Morgan State game. DL Bryce Carter 6-3 262 R-So. 97 Grant Udinski 6-3 240 R-Sr. DL 90 Zain Harps Upshur 6-6 235 R-Sr. 11 Charles Garnett 6-2 300 Jr. DL 92 Niquekko Cook 6-5 268 R-Sr. 95 Sam Gyeni 6-0 269 So. DL 4 Ricky DeBerry 6-1 235 R-Jr. 31 Malik Tyne 6-2 235 R-Jr. (Yes, Zain's height and weight was wrong). We're playing a 4-3 but our bench consists of Garnett (who leaves), Gyeni (a walk-on), Tyne and Udinski. Tyne was the only one with experience and Udinkski I don't believe was a full-scholarship player, but did end up having the second-most sacks on the team with 4.5. This year, we should have a much stronger two-deep.

    There will be good news. Maybe not as exciting as last season when we landed Flacco and DeBerry but I think they are addressing issues that should have been looked at years ago. If you have to spend more ships on the D-line, that's important. When you go back to the best teams in the history of the program, they had a solid D-line led by Farmer, Delaire and Desir. A bunch of transfer linebackers and NFL players in the secondary (Dangerfield, Tye Smith). Not a great scheme but the offense was really the best defense because they were well-rested. The key to keeping this program strong is recruiting transfers because we can't compete with the JMUs and Delaware's when it comes to facilities and atmosphere at games. They are going to get most of the best mid-majors and some 3* guys so we need to capitalize on the FBS transfers. And yes, getting big up front on both sides is paramount to winning in November and December. You aren't going to get 60 degrees and sunny in most cases so expect to grind it out in nasty weather with big uglies up front on both sides. Last season, I thought we had improved up front on the OL, but it wasn't good enough. On defense, we just didn't have the depth when injuries started rolling through. The loss of Tibo early on was a big loss. He had a nice freshman season and had put on about 15 pounds but had a back injury. Another juco transfer (Charles Garnett) left the program. That adds to disaster up front and Duquesne running all over us in the rain (amongst others). Now, if you get another transfer or two to add to Gibbs, Bowman, Carter and Shaffer, we won't have to rely on one guy. Tibo can be a rotation player. We'll (hopefully) have two legit nose guards unlike last season when we had one (others were walk-ons) and Zain was banged up.

    They practiced in 30 degree weather in February for a reason.

    The basic point is that they are really focusing on the defensive side in the offseason, especially the line and at safety. We were horrible against the run last season and while statistically not awful against the pass, we certainly gave up way too many big plays and forced very few turnovers in the passing game. Last season for example, N. Cook went down with an injury, Tibo Debaille was out and we were sunk up front. Zain Harps-Upshur was also not 100% so the line was a mess. Lack of communication in the secondary led to Lyndon Johnson moving to ST coach. All the changes should improve the defensve overall as we're getting bigger and stronger. Still not sure that means more pressure up front and improved secondary play but we'll see. The offensive line is the key to the offense. More push up front is a must in the running game.

    Since it's a slow day, let me update you guys through my own depth chart. Still waiting on a few transfers to be officially committed on both lines. Still haven't heard of a big back coming so I guess it's going to be Yeedee for those tough yards. Kind of puzzling considering he and Shane are both seniors and you need depth at that spot. At right guard, they are still looking, the last I heard. One of the juco kids was on campus already and hasn't decided yet. Also hearing of potential additions on the D-line but again, nothing official. They also may add an OLB, which makes me wonder if they move Ricky DeBerry or Keon Paye inside. No Greaves and Brent Richardson not on the roster. Makes me wonder if they add another WR Late for depth or if talented 3* freshman Murphy plays right away. QB Flacco, Stover/Miller (still competing) RB Simpson, Young, Platt, Thaenrat (220+ now) FB Luke Hamilton (freshman who was injured last year) LT Garnett, Desire RT Darrian Bryant (Temple transfer), John Mullens (moved from DT) RG ????, Brendan Cassells LG Aaron Grzymkowski C Cole Cheripko TE Clark, Myles Wright, Jason Epps WR Leatherbury, Ryan Rutkowski WR J. Allen, Caleb Smith, D'Ago Hunter WR Darian Street, Ja'Len Elliott, Daniel Thompson (new 3/4 scheme) NG Vinnie Shaffer (D2 transfer), possible FBS transfer DE Bryce Carter (6-3, 270). Marcus Bowman (6-2, 270) DE Jesus Gibbs (6-4, 290), Tibo Debaille (6-3, 275) OLB Ricky DeBerry, Nygill Johnson Mantriel Reaves (6-2, 215, moved from safety) OLB Keon Paye, Malik Tyne, John Lambert ILB Chizrum Umunakwe (6-0, 220) ILB Robert Heyward, Christian Dixon S Coby Tippett, transfer?, Stanley Davis S Jamal Gay CB Terrell Gillette, Robert Javier CB Brandon Shuman, Troy Vincent, Jirhe Love
