    Wake Forest preview

    Yeah, I think it all comes down to what type of teams show up. Who is more motivated by missing the NCAAs vs dejected.

    Kobe Young news

    Really sad. Do we know what happened? Gotta be so tough for his family.

    Down but not out

    i'm happy with the NIT. we still get a banner to put in the arena from this millennium

    Pain...

    actually watched the game and got my hopes up - still unsure if that is a good or bad thing good - I started to care and had hoped we could actually win something for the first time since the 2013 FCS championship game bad - we Towson'ed like always silver lining - this team got me to care AND my emotional investments are much lower each year

    Crowd

    Not super shocking for a noon game vs the 8 seed. I'd still be sleeping by the time the bus left if I was still in school. Hopefully, they keep sending the buses for whoever will get on. I never understood why we basically don't require greek kids to go. Tie game attendance to whatever funding they get

    YOUR CAA REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS

    So you are telling me all I had to do was to move 3000 miles away and we'd win something????? If I knew that I would have moved away years ago. 🤣 It is legit a bummer that I used to be a 10 minute metro ride from the arena where we for the first time since I was 4 have a real chance to make the tournament. Regardless if we make the NCAAs I'm going but San Diego or Portland would sure be a nice trip.

    Towson hires Steve Eigenbrot as new AD

    wow I was expecting this search to take a year. seems like a good get on paper but we'll see. MW was a marketer, TL an admin/fundraiser (not sure that held up). SE seems to follow the TL path, major gifts, but he did oversee ticketing so maybe he gets the concept that you have to actually promote the programs for people to come. it's one thing to sell tickets and fundraise at an SEC school with no pro sports team in the state; it's another to have to create demand at a mid-major/FCS school

    Towson/Delaware game suspended

    Right, this does not happen without a failure in oversight. PS mentioned in his press conference the women's team has noted this issue before.

    Towson/Delaware game suspended

    The issue is we don't have more information so logically speculation will happen. The real question is 'who does the buck stop with?' Until that question is answered Towson will always be a circle of finger-pointing.

    Towson/Delaware game suspended

    When I first heard it I was like how does the roof leak in a brand new building? Seems like that was not the case but condensation? Still kind of hard to tell from the write-ups what the players actually slipped on. Whoever is in charge of the building needs to get in touch with the court people and the builders ASAP. I'm assuming some type of insurance would pay to fix this unless it's just our floor mopping people are that incompetent and it was just a cleaning issue. Check the mopping/cleaning agent and process What was the humidity/temp outside vs in? Call an HVAC expert before anyone else touches that court. WBB using the floor today is a bad idea. Hope no one gets hurt. We are owed a full explanation for this not the lack of 'game suspended for unsafe conditions BS'. When I saw the twitters updates then nothing for like an hour I was concerned something way more serious happen. Use the TC until this gets sorted A small part of me thinks this is TL's final revenge. Like when MW left we found out he drastically overspent on marketing and f-ed the dept financially. Is this the cause of TL trying to save money due to all the covid increases in costs and cutting budget on facilities? It would not shock me one bit. Regardless something is very wrong with Towson athletics culturally...and has been for years. Turning around the culture has to be the first priority of the new AD. You have too many people working within the department that clearly don't give an f about trying to get Towson to reach our potential. New AD must root that out and I realize it very will be very hard at a public institution to fire people.

    Georgia Bulldogs or Towson Tigers?

    I dunno seems like a fine reference to me. He is just saying if you are a 4-5 deep on an SEC team (national champs) why would you give that up to start (maybe star but who knows) in the FCS? At WR4 you still are going to play in games. He is saying the transfer portal and NIL markets are too hot right now. (DOGE to the MOOOOON!) Similar to other investments the transfer market will course correct. NILs will become lower as Brands see the (lack of) value. Honestly you will see a few players make big bucks but WR4 isn't getting Brand deals even in the the SEC. If someone really want to maximize the NIL go to a rural school, become a star then the local Chipotle will pay you to be in a commercial. Some guys will still transfer down, which is a win for us. But more will realize hey the grass is not always greener. You still have to compete here.

    New AD Thread II

    still waiting for the recruiters to reach out to me 😂

    Navy preview

    Should be a good test; Navy is good. They beat UVA (who is bad this year). Crushed William & Mary. Only losses are to VT, Louisville and a close loss to Mason.

    New AD Thread II

    back to the AD topic. any idea when they are going to start doing the first set of screening or even just laying out the criteria for the ideal candidate? to 88's point above the new AD needs to focus on that sentiment. It's a pretty tired take IMO. I never viewed Towson as a commuter school growing up in the DC area; I very much doubt all the kids from PA, Jersey and New York do. College park and Mason are suburbs of DC, yet both have athletic success at various levels. the point being there are plenty of schools in major metro areas that still create a connection to campus through athletics. Towson needs to stop trying to be 'Baltimore's this... Baltimore's that..' Realize that Baltimore as a whole isn't going to care and focus on the people who have a connection to the school. Just as a mind shift I'd love for people to start thinking of Towson as Maryland's....(pay a branding agency here - honestly anything but teachers college or affordable... no one likes to be called cheap)
