    I also hear there is a P5 coordinator interested, so there goes my theory about those guys not interested in a lesser paying job.

  6. Was truly an ugly win, but Tyrell Pigrome was brilliant in the last drive for Towson, taking them from 87 yards in 11 plays in 1:36 capped off by a Devin Matthews four-yard run for a TD. For some reason. Stony Brook settle for a short field goal to take a 17-14 lead and Pigrome got the job done. The big play on the drive occurred when Towson had a 4th-and-6th (after a key drop) and Pigrome ran it himself for 27 yards. Instead of settling for a game-tying FG, Pigrome hit DK James at the one-yard line to set up the game-winner without a minute left. For some reason, Towson's defense decided to play prevent all the way downfield (even in the red zone), rushing three and the Seawolves had a chance to win the game with no timeouts. However, an Oly Okombi sack at the Towson 13 and a Robert Javier pass breakup in the end zone saved the day. It was a sloppily-played game by both teams. Towson had 7 penalties for 65 yards including one with too many men in the huddle and a penalty on head coach Rob Ambrose (his second of the season). Pigrome threw for 255 yards and totaled over 300 yards of total offense with two TD passes and no turnovers. The offense ran for just 122 yards on 32 attempts. The defense gave up two big plays for TDs (due to a missed tackle and a slip in coverage). However, Xavier Terry had a key interception in the red zone and the Tigers had three sacks.

    $25 sounds like a lot, but it is for 3 games. About $8 for each game for a tournament, which is not unusual. But I'll be paying and if you guys want to find out what's happening in the game, listen and follow the chat.

  13. Replay on NBC Sports Washington at 12pm Wednesday
  14. Was really hoping to talk to Russell tonight. I thought he was the best player on the floor at times because he had defended Sessoms most of the time and did a great job on him. He also made two big threes to clinch the game. I think he scored a layup on him late, but don't remember him scoring many points with #22 on him. He had 14 points, six rebounds and made 4-of-7 from 3pt range. Cam had a nice all-around game and didn't notice he injured his hand against UMass. Hicks was also playing with a sprained ankle. He did have four assists and two rough turnovers in the first half. The key to me was Conway (3-5 FG, 2-4 3pg) who had 8 points and a rebound (no turnovers) off the bench. He wasn't Gary Payton defensively, but he wasn't terrible. If he can be just average on defense and knock down 2-3 shots a game off the bench, that would be a huge help. Saw the potential finally tonight. The explosion on that small lefty layup for his first basket ever. He just needs to play and I think he'll be a key player down the road. Sylla as well gave us 23 big minutes with 14 and 7. Defensively, you have to hide him some. He made a three tonight and I'm not saying he should be a stretch 4, but I'd like to see him hit that mid-range shot and that will open up his game some. I wasn't shocked he played well tonight against a small frontcourt. Can he do against a bigger frontcourt? Need to see more. Big test over the weekend. Assuming Gibby won't play or even fly if he is that gimpy. There are other ways to help the pain and I've been there. Maybe it hasn't come that yet.
  15. Skerry comments "Happy with the win. Juan has done a really good job turning that program around. They are hard to play against. They are not rattled. We couldn't shake them. Thought it was good to getting Cam back to being Cam. Rebounding was outstanding. Second half we took care of the ball." On Russell's play "Sessoms is really good. He earned some trust late in the game by taking care of the ball, making good shots. He's a good fit for the sauce we're trying to put together. Good ingredient. Thought Cam found people and guys knocked down shots. It wasn't a night where Nic had his best night. Coppin took him out of it. Good to get Ryan Conway going. He's going to be a good player for us." On CT "We need to keep him on the floor. He plays so hard. He's so strong and aggressive. He's a game-changer for us." On 23-0 run "We want our ball movement to define us. That gave us a good separation. We just couldn't shake them." On Gibson's status "He's day-to-day. We're hopeful this weekend. Just want to make sure...12 minutes before tip-off at Greensboro, his back locked up on him like me shovel snow. I didn't do a good job coaching the first half, It threw us for a loop. Hopefully, he'll be back this weekend. If we have him back, that we know he's going to be good. He's a key piece for us." "Radhir Hicks got cleared about 4:30 this afternoon. He sprained his ankle on Saturday. His effort was admirable. I thought he was dragging late. We have to get healthy. Cam tore ligaments in his hand against UMass. We're not really practicing him. Just trying to keep him healthy for games. It's part of the deal." On Cam at point guard "He's done it a lot for us all year. He did a better job taking care of the ball. I thought our guys did a better job with spacing and cutting to help him out. He's such a good passer that guys rely on him, thinking that he'll make a play. Versus helping him out. He does deliver the ball." On Timberlake's struggles "The younger version of him, you worry about meltdowns. Or forcing it. He's past that. It's better when he makes shots, but they did a good job on him tonight." On rebounding "Good to see us getting back to doing that. We pride ourselves on that. We're not quite there yet. We had more of that mentality that we had against UMass. Sylla, Holden and Thompson. The physcality can wear people down." "Thought it was a very good crowd, right before Thanksgiving. Good for local basketball. Leaving at 5am tomorrow Savanah on Saturday. I'm the idiot that made the schedule. It will toughen us up for CAA play." "We have a lot of things we have to get better at. Our competitiveness and winning DNA showed up against UNC Greensboro. We have the belief. Don't always have that with every group. Things tactically we have to get better at." On starting 5-0 "Show film on what they did well and didn't. I know what guys consume. That's hard (to get focused). If you don't keep getting better, you are not going to get the opportunities you want later in the year. I think our guys understand that. What we do this weekend is hopefuly give us a chance to have an experience in March."
  16. Ok, very busy tonight. We are 5-0. Here are the comments Sekou "My sixth three-pointer ever. Still low." "It felt good especially since they are from Baltimore so it's a rivalry game." Cam on playing smaller team "They have a unique style. They take you off the bounce. They play team basketball. It tests our one-on-one defense. I got beaten off the dribble. I'm used to people cutting." Charles Thompson on starting out 5-0 "Everybody talks about it. We're just having fun. This not a surprise to us. We asked for a tough schedule on the road and we got it." Holden "We have skilled guys. We play inside-out. I can post up point guard since I play the point. It frees Charlie up for a dunk or Nic up for a layup. " On not having Gibson "Jason is a great leader. I play 1 through 4 on this team. Radhir was a little banged up. Whatever spot they need me in." On rebounding Sekou "All week. Coach Skerry was emphasizing boxing out. We did that in practice all week." CT on balance "We trust each other. The offense is made for everyone to thrive in. We're all capable of putting the ball in the bucket."

    Ambrose let go

    https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/college/football/bs-sp-rob-ambrose-towson-football-20221121-pxaikn4p6jcvhcfhqtieifc7hi-story.html Quotes from the Sun story this morning (top of the front page of the Sports section) Reached via text, Ambrose declined to comment. Towson athletic director Steve Eigenbrot said he informed Ambrose of the decision Monday morning. He also said he elected not to offer another contract extension to Ambrose, who had two more months left on his current deal. While acknowledging a number of factors that contributed to the decision, Eigenbrot noted that the school has not qualified for the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoffs since 2018. “We want to play football on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and we want to continue that with more frequency,” he said. “When I got hired, I think the comment that was made that was pretty relevant to TU athletics was that we’ve seen success in many areas across the board. The idea of sustained success and what that looks like is something that we’re after, and I think the football program in recent years hasn’t been able to hit that mark.” Eigenbrot credited Ambrose and his players for refusing to give up after a five-game losing streak from Sept. 17 to Oct. 22. “They lost five games in a row, which I think for all intents and purposes eliminated them from the playoffs, and they turned around and won four games,” he said. “I don’t care who the opponents are, but the fact that they did that says a lot about the character of the team and Coach Ambrose’s willingness to put in the work. That being said, when I got here in March, Rob had 10 months left on his contract, and we’ve been in a situation here — kind of well before my tenure — where as he was coaching that contract down, I think things were kind of pointed in this direction, and ultimately, it felt like … a confluence of circumstances where it was time.” Eigenbrot said his phone has been “ablaze” with interest from potential successors. He said he would not restrict the parameters of the search to only those with head coaching experience or those who are well-versed in the CAA. “I don’t think there’s a particular type,” he said. “With me, I feel like the fit piece certainly makes a lot of sense. … If you’re not a DMV person but you’ve got some experience in the CAA or know what FCS football looks like, I think there’s two different ways to go about that. At the end of the day, I’d really like to find somebody that fits Towson and fits with me and our vision of what this athletic department wants to be moving forward.”
  18. Pretty amazing for a 6-5, 4-4 CAA team to have just one position player (Gibbs) on three all-conference teams not counting special teams, but it showed we didn't have any stars on either side of the ball. https://towsontigers.com/news/2022/11/22/hunter-named-caa-special-teams-player-of-the-year-three-tigers-honored-in-caa-football-postseason-awards.aspx

    Not sure but with a tournament coming up later in the week, I’d be very careful with him.

    Ambrose let go

    Good point about the offensive line. I thought we had a pretty good one from 2018-21. Not having enough depth at running back when Shane went down various times didn’t help.
