    I'm not going to get into it with our resident sports management professor, but college is expensive and the athletics fees suck. But 2006, your employer nickle and dimes its students for almost everything (as does every other college), and there are some fee's for services that other students don't use buy are stuck paying. Fees per year of similar and conference schools: Towson $998 in state $956 out of state (2019) University of Maryland $812 (2018) William & Mary $1,980 per year (2018) James Madison $2,058 (2019) VCU $828 (2018 not sure if per semester or yearly) College of Charleston $1,236 (2016) UNCW $750 (2017) George Mason $1,752 (2019; other items included, not solely athletics) UMBC $1,074 (2017) Univ of Albany $582 (2017) Univ of New Hampshire $1,075 (2019) Stony Brook $572 (2019)

    Maybe doing the grunt work, but not the actual ticket staff that are to be calling. They typically have 2-3 that are not interns, however there is high turnover in that. $2,100?? Are you speaking of student athletic fees?

    Game Tuesday against UMBC. A team, most fans/students, know due to locality and the NCAA tournament. What are they doing to put butts in the seat and promote this game? Crickets?

    Not surprising. No promotions, no advertisements, awful ticket office (I had to call them numerous times to renew my season tickets that I've had for 6+ years!). Seems like they put all their eggs in one basket, for the Villanova football game (which they did a great job for that one, and it worked as the crowd was very good), and then nothing for the rest of the season or for hoops.

    It's both. Attendance at 95% of sporting events, pro or college, is down. That is a fact. The University does a bad job promoting and the students don't care/won't care. That's also a fact. Baltimore and Maryland itself is not a great sports area. It just isn't. UMBC coming off the UVA upset, and a brand new arena, barely average 1,450 people last year. Maryland is (and it pains me to say) very good and even they aren't drawing.

    Agree with your first point. But America East would increase travel costs. Some of those schools are a haul.

    "announced" attendance. I was there and there was no way in hell that there were only 400 empty seats... And 1/3 of people didn't show up until HT

    Morgan State preview

    They handled it pretty well. Pat's moved the 4 and 5 all the way down the court as to not bring any other defenders up near the half court line. Our guys are still running to sharp of a line to the corner on the catch though. They need to flatten it out a little.

    I was there and the fans were equally confused and upset about it. There was no announcement made over the PA, but it was one of their better calls of the night. The Sanders And-1 was huge. A really nice move by him. He actually looked under control for the most of the night.

    Agree with all you said. Loved them playing through Fobbs, he made some good passes and decisions with the ball. Also liked them posting up Betrand on the smaller defenders, has a Mike Morsell-ish lanky-ness to him and finished pretty well down low and in the mid range. But the key was, that he was confident. Tunstall had a great game, I could have sworn he had more than 10 boards. He blocked more shots than what was in the official box score. Had to play big minutes with the other 3 bigs in foul trouble. It helps that Morgan doesn't have a big bruiser and their only serviceable big was in sanders like foul trouble.

    nearly 4,000?!? ESPN lists that place as holding 4,250. I would say 2,500-3,000. No way it was that close to capacity. Nick's 2 FT's looked and came off very badly. But would like to see a defensive lineup of Him, Dennis, Betrand, Dottin and Thompson. Best D Lineup when a stop is needed.

    Nice win. Morgan can't shoot but did run some nice cuts and backdoor plays. We typically always play down to their level and its a very close game. There was definitely some suspicious officiating which lead to a long game with all of the FT's, at least they didn't have any real long review. Was sitting right across from Sanders when he got mugged. How that was a jump ball might be the worst call I've seen in person. No play made on the ball and just chucked him. As critical as I am with Pat, he did a very good job tonight switching defenses, into a little zone and lead to our big runs. They got their hands in passing lanes and got out on the break. Damn Timberlake can run! Also liked that he put Gibson in at the end and went small when they were going to press. Gibson, Dottin, Fobbs, Betrand and Sanders. I'm in the minority but will say again, HATE playing these local teams. It's big if they win and crappy if we lose. There's nothing to gain IMO on playing Morgan, especially there. Yes, we save on travel, and it's nice for me to go to some road games, but I just don't see the benefit.

    Yes, the FloSports disaster is strictly a CAA and Joey D issue

    Sorry, but someone has to say it... our students don't show up to a game on campus, they aren't going to go a few miles down the road.

    Just think what an average coach could do with Tom. Any other program in the caa would be back to back playoffs. Rob can’t. He gets a pass from The 80s and 90s crew
