    Football comes back to beat URI 31-30

    Here is my personal list. Biased for places I have been. I enjoy checking out stadiums on road trips so been to a decent number Newark: Absolutely not, I almost spit out my coffee reading this. the stadium is in the middle of flat parking lots and fields. nowhere near the core campus or downtown. literally on the wrong side of the tracks. Been to a game Missoula & Bozeman: 1000% both fantastic towns with amazing views of the rockies from the stadiums with huge local support because the Cats/Griz is the only sports in the state. I lived in Bozeman for a winter, driven by both many times. Yes, it's cold but the scenery is worth it Fargo: No; it's just cold and flat. Same for all the Dakota schools. Driven by Williamsburg: Yes; but also pretty stuffy people. Same feedback for most of Ivy's. Generally cool, old stadiums but the alumni are the worst. Been to a game San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly): Yes, in the heart of SoCal wine country. Rolling hills, palm trees, beaches, sun, warm weather. Driven by Georgetown: Small but built right into the heart of campus. Went to a lax game Ogden (Weber State): Right in the mountains, very close to campus. Cool ski town. Driven by Driven by: UC Davis, Sac State, Western Carolina, Maine, UNH, Youngstown, Howard...we beat all of them BONUS Personal FBS ranking: Awesome: App State, Nebraska, UCLA, Penn State Fine: Notre Dame, UVA, VT, GT, USC, Minnesota Booooo: JMU, Maryland, GA State (lol, its a baseball stadium)

    2023 General Football News

    some quick googling - we've had a basketball team for over 100 years (1921-22)!! How did we not celebrate this?!? forgetting covid and all but still could have done something last year to make up for it. So many throwback jersey opportunities. https://towsontigers.com/sports/2014/8/4/gen_0804140237.aspx?id=88 https://archives.towson.edu/Documents/Detail/first-mens-basketball-team/60531

    not bad. they finally got someone who has shopped in this millennium to do merchandising. love the vintage collection and cartoon collections. only small thing is I wish for the vintage stuff they used TSU vs updating to TU for the pre '97 logos. It's not really vintage, more retro-inspired. I get hating when people call us "Towson State" (mostly on tv...looking at you ESPN) but we don't need to erase history. I'd love some kind of super retro inspired: Maryland State Normal School; Maryland State Teachers College; Towson State College. So much cool history the university could use but we really only function like most of the post WW2 schools. https://archives.towson.edu/wiki/normal-schools https://archives.towson.edu/wiki/name-changes

    Spokane or Salt Lake would be better for me personally coming from SoCal but the West Regional would be ideal. 😁

    General MBB 2023-24 thread

    I hate the track sooooo much. Should have moved it down the soccer and practice fields when they redid those

    Thoughts on Timberlake?

    Very much will be pulling for him. If he goes off on national tv you know for sure the announcers will say he was at Towson for 5 years.

    New TU NIL Collective

    Yes! I've said this on other threads before but I hate the GOH marketing push. It alienates any student or alumni not from the Baltimore area, who can speak without a jar full of marbles in their mouth. This feels like a vendor (likely since it "had" to be a third party) or low-level employee wanting to brown nose Dr. E so they are like oh let's name it after the marketing push he thought up a few months into his employment without understanding Towson's (lack of) connection to the local area. Unfortunately, because they made it the URL and program name as we'll inevitability need to rebrand the NIL program to something more obvious to what the NIL program is once we move off the GOH push which will create more confusion in the long run. None of this is surprising just classic Towson.

    MLax thread for 2022 and 2023

    Not saying we are going P5 but gotta leave the CAA asap. To what I don't know but Dr. E needs to be working the phones to get us someplace with better-aligned schools. I firmly believe a breakaway league needs to be started with us and UD, W&M, and some convo of the OVC and Missouri Valley football schools. Lax can be an associate member of the Patriot league or even the America East, both are better lax leagues than the CAA. For football, we are already going up to Maine and for basketball to Charleston. All the way to Chicago is the same distance

    MLax thread for 2022 and 2023

    I haven't really been following lax at all this year but what happened? are we just bad at lacrosse now? are we young? key injuries? I just feel like we went from going to the final 4 to getting beat by UMBC, gross....just gross. this is just another reason the death of the CAA is killing us. We went from having Penn State, UMass and Villanova as league games to Hampton, Monmouth and Fairfield. Our schedule is trash so why would top talent play here? No more hopkins, college park on the schedule. Big games people used to tailgate for when I was in school.
  11. No, just no. Just leave the CAA already; at this point go to the SoCon or whatever the OVC is going to be call. I now only watch games when we are away out of conference and get them free on ESPN +. I'd rather listen to the free radio stream than pay for Flo. Give a membership away as a Tiger Club perk or I will continue to never watch Towson sports which is just sad.

    Pres. Schatzel headed to Louisville

    Should this be in the football topic? Also wow 7 years, did not feel that long at all.

    New Coach Thread

    For the first time since Mikey W I feel like we have an AD that knows how to use the internet and knows how to build engagement, despite the fact that I hate the GOH campaign at least he tried something. I have faith Dr Steve will be able to sell the position well to get good candidates. We have a good stadium, new practice fields, a talented area to recruit from, a solid geographic rival (UD). Yes, we likely need an indoor practice facility but if the new coach can start winning and filling the stands that will come. Mikey W got us our only sellout ever ten years ago - it can be done again with the right pieces in place.
