    General Football News

    and yet not picked up by NBC Mid-Atlantic

    ESPN+

    The production quality was bad as always and the PxP guy was a total homer (the color guy was much better) but hey it was free for me since I have the Disney, Hulu Espn bundle and was able to pull it up on my TV through Hulu with no issues. Being able to do that and not some hack job streaming service DC United cut mid-season years ago made me feel like I was a real college football fan for maybe the first time since 2013 when with our playoff games on ESPN2 or U and going to Frisco felt like what I imagine a bowl game feels like. It was only a few hours for one game but a man can dream...

    Shake up in Athletic Department

    Shake up in Athletic Department

    Personally not a fan. Again, we are never going to be Baltimore's anything it also alienates the rest of the state who can pronounce words correctly.

    Yes NCAA or bust. For his twitter, it's cringy to me.. just give an intern the login.

    Shake up in Athletic Department

    Yes, good more changes, please. Even if they all fail at least we are trying to not just be status quo.

    College Football at this level

    It's clear we are never going to be in the new college football Super League so for me I like us being good at this level; whatever that is. I see FCS (likely non-Super League FBS too ) just becoming like minor league baseball or hockey. Those teams turn over every year and most players don't make it to the show but the community gets excited when the team is good. Every once in a while a kid clearly will become a star and you follow them and cheer for them as they move along. I never cared about UVA but when Shane went there for the covid season I followed them. Super League = MLB/NHL FBS Group of 5 = AAA/AHL FCS = AA/ECHL Who doesn't love a good Baysox game? Just be that and people will be happy. Now Marketing, realizing, becoming that, and listening to fans, etc. - that's the achilles heel of Towson. We are always caught in the middle with endless higher education bureaucrats either 1) thinking we are going to be something to the greater Baltimore area or 2) will kill any sense of fun/school pride the second a drunk student sets foot in a parking lot. If we can ever realize no one in Baltimore or even Towson city cares about Towson unless they went there and focus on building our alumni and student engagement we can have an avid fanbase without being on ESPN in with a 100,000 person stadium.

    General MBB thread 2021-22

    We can basically guarantee a game vs JMU. the lazy broadcaster "they used to be rivals in the CAA" is too easy for them to pass up. Queue talking about JMU moving to FBS football and the power 5 blowing up the NCAA after that for the following 5 minutes.

    Transfers vs. non-Transfers

    If they can win I don't care transfer or not. Long term it would be nice to have a better development pipeline but I'm fine being Transfer U

    Story on CAA expansion

    Yes! we need to figure the TV thing first and foremost. Everything not on a normal (aka anything but Flo) streaming platform should be free on the school digital networks or CAA TV. I never minded the old TSN broadcast because they were free. I think the MVFC is not the SEC of FCS but I do remember and miss those days. Right now the CAA is maybe the big 10 but more likely the big 12. I also doubt it will happen but Texas and OU left the big 12 or the SEC; so a package of W&M, UD and Towson to the MVFC would be too different of an idea. Agreed it's all money for the Power 5 but what I don't agree with is UMD and Rutgers bringing the DC and NYC markets. Maybe 20 years ago when DMAs mattered for TV but now everything is streaming so it doesn't matter where you live. I'd also very much argue Maryland barely has the DC market, no one in VA cares. Rutgers even less for NYC. I bet Penn State gets higher viewership in DC than UMD. Let alone with the fact with Maryland and Rutgers will never be competitive which will drive down interest even more in urban areas with other, better entertainment. Non of these are perfect ideas but if I'm Dr. E i'm on the phone constantly looking to work on something better than the current CAA. We look even better if we are a package with W&M and UD.

    Story on CAA expansion

    I never understood a couple of things related to all this conference realignment stuff why keep rehashing old conferences instead of starting a new one? the power 5 on down. ie what does Vandy bring to the SEC? Rutgers and Maryland in the big 10, etc. Smaller is better...because you might be able to actually win once in a while. The power 5 is trying to be the NFL 2.0; who cares, that isn't going to be us. Why does the CAA keep bailing out schools from the A10 and Big East with football? Play hardball, if they want to play football at this level join the conference in all sports I realized Villanova and Richmond will never do this but make that the Patriots league problem. Rhody would have to at least consider if the CAA 2.0 was attractive Let's assume we need 10 schools for a conference. Find 10 like-minded schools and stick together. State schools, in Northeast that play FCS football: Towson Delaware W&M UNH Maine Albany Stony Brook VMI Youngstown (i'm sure they would rather come east than go to the Dakotas) Rhody Backups The Citadel Central Conn Another option is to try and join the Missouri Valley Football Conference and break away as an all sports league with an east and west. Work out some deal for the Illinois schools to always play each other and that is a great looking conference to me. Again, sizeable state schools that play FCS football. This might even be a multi bid basketball league in some years. It's far better in MBB than the new CAA. East: Towson UD W&M Youngstown Murray State Indiana State Illinois State Eastern Illinois (from the OVC) West: North Dakota State North Dakota South Dakota State South Dakota Northern Iowa Missouri State Western Illinois Southern Illinois

    Press Box Interview with Steve Eigenbrot

    Alumni engagement If he plans to stop trying to be "Baltimore's team" (it's never going to happen) and focus more on the Towson community Bringing back something like T-Unit - student leadership to help drive attendance Engagement with more avid fan (aka us on here - does he even know about this site) I remember I only learned about the old CAA Zone because they used to advertise it during football games on the PA It's always been strange to me that we don't have like a fan engagement townhall, forum, or survey. When I was a season ticket holder for the Caps they would survey me and ask me questions about my experience all the time.

    Also look to minor league baseball for ideas. People love antics.
