    quick math - numbers don't lie

    The point I am making is that regular season records are, in a one bid conference, meaningless. If all you want is a pat in the back, you can refer to regular season records. If you want something that matters, refer to post season....that's where you earn your money.

    Actually, sort of a silly point. It would be similar to saying, what is Bill Belicheck's record without Tom Brady. Maybe he should be fired. Coaching records are obviously better when they have exceptional players. Regular season records of our basketball coach are pretty good....extension after extension, but has the men's b-ball program been a success? I would venture to say not. There are many ways to evaluate success. People tend to use the ones that serve their preconceived notion.

    Sad news

    Very sad news. An exceptionally caring individual both in athletics and in life.

    Off-season news and clips

    I am sorry. I did leave the last sentence out of my original post. The last sentence should read "Though I am sorry that we only once got past the first game of the conference tournament". You are what your record says you are, and PS record in games that mean something is atrocious.

    It's the same old song.......year after year after year. "We are really good"...."This group has the best (fill in the blank) of any team in my (fill in the number of years) coaching. "

    Hartford and D3

    Just wondering what everyone thinks of the discussion going on at the University of Hartford regarding a move to Division 3, given the cost of D1 is so extraordinary?

    Have we found a spot yet on our schedule for Goucher?

    2021-22 Roster, at the moment

    Not sure, but isn't this the same quote I saw in 2020 &2019 & 2018 & 2017, etc?

    2021-22 Transfer Thread

    What do you want him to say? There is nothing he can say that will make any difference. Let his results do the talking for him. In one of the posts above, some kid is coming because PS laid out his path to a conference championship. I fell bad for the kid as he likely will be very disappointed. Talk is cheap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Coaching Futility

    Maybe put up a banner for the longest enduring coach without winning anything

    Looks like the staff will talk to anyone that is willing to talk back to them.

    Coaching Futility

    Funny how everybody says "PS is a great guy, but blah, blah, blah" Maybe he is and maybe he isn't. you only know him from afar, but that is neither here nor there. You don't get an extension for being a great guy, just like you don't get an extension for having a team get a 3.0 GPS. maybe you should....but you don't.....So talk about the stuff that matters. The teams have failed to perform at the moments that matter. That is all that matters. It is all that mattered when he got extensions based on numbers of wins....nothing to do with being a "great guy". Keep your eye on the ball......what's good for the goose is good for the gander. You don't need to soften the blow....other coaches have been fired for not winning and they have far less resources that PS. We don't need reasons...we don't need explanations...we need a new coach....period.

    2021-22 Transfer Thread

    You are correct.....but that is the intention of the Power 5. If you believe that any of the Power 5 schools worry about being "fair" to mid majors, you are sadly mistaken. Do you think they really want to share the NCAA tournament money with Drexel or Mason or Towson. The mid majors are just a fly in the ointment for them. The best thing that could happen is to have the Power 5 break off...make their own rules and let the others make rules that benefit the vast majority of universities and student athletes.
  14. I read the information carefully. Does being an awful coach count as being fired with cause?

    Season is mercifully over

    Why does Skerry get a pass for this year? Was Towson the only school that had to deal with Covid. Loyola...a # 9 seed (and they had covid as well) beat # 1 seed Navy in the patriot League tournament. Regardless of obstacles, you have to get the job done, especially with that salary! He deserves NO PASSES. He used all of the ones folks should be inclined to give.

    Fire Pat and Leonard

    And not even close!
  17. Who ever thought that the ACC Coaches would be Skerry's best shot to get a team to the NCAA tourney. They have proposed that every D1 team in the country get invited. Probably means another extension. I would think his contract provides an extension if the Tigers make the tournament.
  18. Which sports do you want to cut? I am not certain if the NCAA has allowed the minimum number to be lowered, but if not, we have the minimum number of men's sports allowed and we still have to be Title IX compliant. That makes it very difficult.

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    Just as a note, the AD at Elon, Dave Blank is the guy that the search committee at Towson recommended hiring before Mike Waddell showed up. He has done a remarkable job at Elon. My understanding is that Towson was unwilling to pay Blank's salary requirement.

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    This stuff takes time????????????????? 10 years apparently is not long enough to run out of excuses. Skerry has everything he needs. Other coaches have been fired for not winning, but PS gets extensions. Why can't folks just admit that this is not a good situation for Towson basketball. Very year it is the same story, just a different excuse.

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    At this level, there really is only one stat that matters.....games won in March. You can beat NJIT all you want. You can beat, whoever that gteam was that nobody knows the name of that we played this year. You can beat Goucher.....none of that matters. Skerry has more resources, a better arena, more "academic" advisors, more weight training personnel and a far greater salary than Kennedy had. So to say that under Kennedy we were terrible and Skerry took us out of the abyss is a totally meaningless argument. The CAA under Kennedy also had VCU, Old Dominion, George Mason.....now the CAA is totally mediocre and he can't even win a March game against that hockey school Northeastern. We tell kids they need to be held accountable.......how about a coach making nearly a half million. As I was mocked for before, mid-majors play 30 exhibition games. Only the conference tournament matters.

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    I could not agree with you more. When you have the list of Mt. Rushmore of "cheating"....at least they won. The old saying is if you are going to cheat, you should at least win. As far as Skerry, I have no idea how anyone can defend his time at Towson. Every year is a new excuse as to why he fails at tournament time. You can talk about graduating and being a nice guy...supposedly... But you don't get extensions because a team has a 3.0. You don't get extensions because you are chummy with donors. You get extensions because you win important games....and we are still waiting. As far as I am concerned his years have been better than Coach Kennedy, but it total, his time has been unsuccessful. Coaches in this, a rather mediocre CAA, have been replaced after accomplishing much more. I look forward to the day that the Tigers hoist a CAA Championship trophy. I don't think it will be during the Skerry tenure.

    I thought the Bulldog was Butler, not Georgetown......am I mistaken?

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    I know you are being sarcastic, so I am actually agreeing with you that Skerry will never get it. 10 years, unearned extensions, 2-10 (maybe 2-9...not sure) in conference tournaments. Think of all the coaches that have been fired for not winning but not Skerry in the sport that is supposed to be as important as any in which to win. I don't think he is throwing darts....he is just hoping someone....anyone...will come and play at Towson for him and maybe stay here for more than a cup of coffee.
