    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.

    An 18-0 run propels MBB over Morgan State, 76-59

    "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.

    An 18-0 run propels MBB over Morgan State, 76-59

    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.

    An 18-0 run propels MBB over Morgan State, 76-59

    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

    Meh. I'd look for a young and hungry assistant or successful coach from a smaller school. ODU expects to win and doesn't accept mediocrity. Good for them. Rob also had Terrance West when he had most of his success.

    Maybe if the caa does something in the playoffs this year. Besides jmu, I don’t see that happening. Regardless a 7-4 and first round exit shouldn’t be what we are hoping for. If that’s the ceiling under the savior? Pass go 6-5 move on and get someone whose hungry and can recruit and develop players. And more importantly win big games. Or atleast beat partially scholly teams

    Maryland jmu nova are 3 L next year. At Del, at Richmond and then Dartmouth. Lose any of those it should be the final (finally!) nail in the coffin for this coach
  15. I'm not going to comment on a game that I didn't see and been out of town. Sounds like some changes were made and they played different groups of players, got their best shooter more than one shot, and pushed the tempo a little. That's good and changes that we all would like to see to put them in better shape to win. Kudos to them bouncing back after what was probably a long 36+ hours of sitting around with the stench of the last 2 minutes of Friday. I'm not going to hide when they win because it "doesn't fit my agenda." I'd rather be wrong then right, because that means they are winning. It is Skerrys way or the highway, so the blame on him for the same mistakes for close a decade are absolutely reasonable. We hardly if ever, come out of a time out with a good play or frankly any clue what we are doing. Chris, your'e a basketball person, you know that it is true. If it was 1 cycle of players, sure it could be more of a player problem than coaching. But we are 9 years in with 80+ different players with the same issues?? That's not just a random coincidence. Bottom line is they won a game (after a tough defeat) against another lower level A10 team. A game that we should probably win and did. That is great. Now lets stop yaking up late game leads and win the 50/50 games and a few 40/60 ones.

    It’s bad. We all want to win. Some love rob here. Some are his family. It’s a bad look. He makes a lot of money and doesn’t earn it. Kiss his ass but deleting posts is bad

    Yawn same old same old. Just drop Athletics if you aren’t interested in winning. Tim and others here aren’t. It’s a joke at this point. An idiot can get into the playoffs.

    Fcs football in 2019. 1/4 of the teams make it. He’s been around for 10 years and 3 playoffs. Move on
