    For sure not the most progressive in the country. Vermont, Cali, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii just off the top of my head.

    I wonder how much money it takes to just buy our way onto the committee like full-on P5 style? 😁

    To me is actually kind of sad how little these people make considering the work they are (supposed to be) doing. Any C-suite that oversees a comparable-sized private company is making millions no questions asked. Note I said supposed to be - in general, I imagine most people in this line of work are higher ed bureaucrats - not motivated by results. With that in mind, we need to consider who does this type of work - someone not as motivated by money or had already made it. You look for two types of people: someone young at a smaller program who has shown success winning and building facilities in revenue sport. uses technology, new innovative ways of approaching an issue, and efficiency to beat their peers like for the love of god find some creative way to get us out of flo someone who has already made their money, has a connection to Towson, and is ready to 'retire' from whatever hectic job they have now not going to move as fast but has money and connections. wants more out of towson then just a paycheck

    MBB falls to Pitt on the road 63-59 (story up)

    Uuggh same old story is right. Watch the game with a buddy of mine, a Wake alum who would be more than happy to see an ACC foe get upset. I said to him with about 5 minutes to go "I bet you we still lose by 5." Sure enough, the ACC refs call a couple of questionable fouls on us and we forget to run any offense and we lost by 4. WTF was that blocking call - even the ACC network announcers were like that isn't a foul

    TL is stepping down

    Interesting points, and worth softening my tone a bit (I had no idea we voted against FLO) however good leaders still know they are accountable for even decisions out of their control. If we voted against FLO and we knew the CAA was headed in the downward direction with Joey D (what a clown) why didn't we better prepare for a way out? I'd love to know more here. What's that drama with Schaetzel? I thought people liked her? But I have no idea other than they send me a lot of letters to donate and the Rise campaign seems like a good thing.

    TL is stepping down

    Exciting news! Never been a fan of TL. If he was a fine fundraiser and administrator okay (I never noticed his impact). I'll give him the facilities did improve (I believe from state money) but he never brought winning to the major sports (football and mbb) which would drive any real growth in fundraising. The fact that the CAA went from being a good mid-major league and the best conference in the FCS to low major and second or third best in the FCS under TL's watch with no plans or ability to set us up for the latest round of realignment is on TL. Inaction is action and no plans are plans. You don't fundraise by winning national championships in community service.... To me Flo/the CAA and middling coaching in major sports killed TL's career here but he did nothing to stop either. WILD CARD - I've said this before on past threads Coach Rich should be the CEO of basketball. PS reports to her and she can run both programs. Let's take that one more step.. Coach Rich should be the AD. She actually plays (home games) and wins vs power 5 teams, has a player get drafted, won the conference, and has a successful business background. Hire her ASAP!

    Elon rocks Football 37-14

    Sadly I moved to Cali but i'm ready for the fire Ambrose shirts. HOWEVER, will TL do it.... no way. We are stuck with RA and the new shitter CAA.

    Around the CAA

    the CAA is a low major now

    Slow start dooms MBB against Monmouith 79-71

    Gross. Possible future (boring) CAA matchup and we already can't get the win.

    Is JMU leaving the CAA? YES

    Charleston is 45mins close to Towson than Orono driving time. I don't see that as more awful than what we currently have. We are already going to Boston for Northeastern. At least if you get a cluster of new england schools you have travel partner options and flying comes into play. We already fly to Orono for football as it is. Charleston's travel partners opportunities are UNCW and Elon. 3.5 & 5 hours away driving. Orono to Boston is 4 hours for context. Albany to Burlington is 3 hours. Again no worse.

    Is JMU leaving the CAA? YES

    I'd also added about UNH and Maine + Vermont. UNH & Maine bring good football and Vermont decent basketball. (maybe charleston doesn't leave then?) Also, travel partners for Northeastern. Hartford is dropping to D3; rapid the football schools of the AE.

    Is JMU leaving the CAA? YES

    None of these schools are something we should be excited about. The CAA we joined had Mason, VCU, ODU for basketball, and JMU for football. All local rivals.. with a marquee sport. The (lack of) conference and our athletic leadership is a HUGE concern for me. We should be pulling out all the stops to be package deal with W&M and UD.
