    Charleston Classic

    Oddly enough, I was at that game too. My wife is a Dayton Flyer and we made the trip from Indianapolis, where we were living at that time, over to Dayton. Great atmosphere....lousy result. We were planning to make the trip over to Charleston this weekend but our kids' soccer schedules threw a wrench in that plan.

    I am 100% supportive of Coach Shinnick and believe he'll ultimately be very successful at Towson. Having said that, let me take a minute to go back in time, about 9 or 10 months ago, to when the head coach search was on and the name I submitted for consideration was Slippery Rock HC Shawn Lutz. The Rock is 10-1 this season, and Lutz is now 68-18 at SRU. That is a .791 winning %. If I'm any northeast or mid-Atlantic FCS program who's going to be in the market for a new HC at the end of this season, he's the first guy I would call. I'm looking at you, Bucknell, Stony Brook, Robert Morris, etc. Shawn Lutz - Football Coach - Slippery Rock University Athletics (rockathletics.com)

    General MBB 2023-24 thread

    I'm probably not going to be chiming-in too much this basketball season, at least not until mid-February. I'll certainly be paying attention but I just can't get too wrapped up in what happens week-to-week from November through January. The *ONLY* thing that matters in CAA hoops is the tournament. That's it and that's all. I don't care if we head into the tournament with a 30-1 record or a 16-15 record. We've seen over Skerry's career that heading into the tournament as a regular season champion hasn't made much of a difference in winning it. Just play your best basketball over the course of those 2-3 days. That's it. Do I have any confidence that Skerry has turned into some type of coaching savant and will finally figure out how to win the tournament? Absolutely not. Smart money says go against the Tigers in the CAA Tourney. Will I still be cheering like hell for TU basketball? Absolutely.

    Now THIS should be interesting. Kudos to the program the athletics department for arranging this forum. Need to check my schedule to confirm my availability to attend!

    Talk about a total tease....I saw this graphic (see bottom right of graphic) and headline on CBSsports.com and for a minute thought they had lost their minds. Spoiler alert; Towson is not one of the top 101 teams. CBS Sports - News, Live Scores, Schedules, Fantasy Games, Video and more. - CBSSports.com

    Football stuns No. 13 W&M 34-24

    Seems like a very on-schedule progression through the season for a brand new staff. Playing better each game, developing more chemistry player-to-player and coaches-to-players. Hiccups along the way of course, as should be expected….unless you’re TuTigers2012 whose expectations for a first year coach is an undefeated season or bust. William & Mary were suspect coming in. If they were the juggernaut that TuTigers2012 thought they were they would have steamrolled some teams earlier in the season. Won’t be surprised at all if we find 2 more wins on our schedule which would make for a very strong 1st season for Coach Pete. Go Tigers.

    William & Mary Preview

    Close game as of 5:51pEST, no?

    William & Mary Preview

    While I'm not expecting Towson to win, W&M doesn't exactly look like a world-beater. It looks like Campbell and Charleston Southern gave them all they could handle and what appears to be a fairly mediocre Elon squad beat them in a fugly 14-6 game. I'll say 28-24 W&M, but I will also completely hedge and say I wouldn't be surprised if Towson pulls out a 27-20 win. Go Tigers.

    Football falls to Albany 24-17

    I can’t get too bent out of shape about a 7 point loss to an Albany team that thumped Villanova and had very respectable showings against FBS programs Hawaii and Marshall. They are a better team than we are at this point in time but we’re clearly better than we were in week 1. Progress.

    Albany Preview

    Don't have a great feeling about this matchup but wouldn't be completely surprised if we found a way to pull it out. As of now, I'm saying 34-24 Albany.

    Towson shocks No. 14/17 UNH 54-51 in overtime

    Just now having a chance to see the box score and the highlights.....very happy to see Lukkas Londono make such a clutch play towards the end. Love those scrappy Bergen County dudes!

    Absolutely outstanding win. Can’t wait to see how some on here might still come for Shinnick. Go Tigers!!

    41-17 UNH......and will still not be a reason to panic about Shinnick.

    Taking a page out of the "Nick Saban School of Coaching Rehabilitation". A smart move that keeps him plugged into the coaching community & network. Maybe he parlays this into a full-time gig with the Terps next season or more likely lands at a school like ODU, Marshall, etc......a regional mid-major.

    Sad

    So is the belief that this roster is stacked with superior talent and that Coach is inept for not being able to win with what he has? It appears to me he’s working with a patch-work group of marginal players. Leftovers from Ambrose, transfers who didn’t cut it at other programs, dudes looking for a last chance to play college ball and first year kids. This isn’t a terribly impressive group of players. Let the man have a couple of proper recruiting cycles. Also, his UWF team, a team he literally built, is currently 3-1. What’s that you say? It’s not comparable since it’s a D2 program? It’s all relative, the guy knows football and the kind of players it takes to win at the respective level. I think UWF would beat this Towson team today. I’ll tell you what’s set Towson football back behind so many other programs. It was Towson’s refusal to part ways with “lifetime contract” coaches like Gordy Combs and Ambrose. Year after year of mediocre seasons with no consequences. The program was managed like a high school team. And you’re shocked that an outsider can’t come in and can’t get things rolling after 4 games?? A few of you are delusional.

    Fully admit that I have a local bias and it's a sample size of ONE, but I look at a school like Kennesaw State, here in GA (~15 miles north of Atlanta). I think this qualifies as a metro/suburban University similar to Towson. -Didn't have a football program until 2015 -Play FCS; Big South Conference -On-campus stadium holds 8,300 -Undergrad Enrollment: ~33,000 -Program winning %: .739 This is a school that compares very well to Towson in all facets from academic reputation/status, local reputation, media coverage (or lack thereof), light years behind in fan interest compared to the "big-boy" in-state programs and the local pro teams. I would guess that the university budgets & endowments are not too different or are similar in relative terms. They don't pack their stadium on game days either. They even wear black & gold like our Tigers. And yet, this time next year, they'll be a card-carrying member of C-USA and the media & financial benefits that come with it. In less than 10 years of existence. Now, that .739 winning % over 8+ seasons is pretty damn stout and clearly has something to do with the move. Winning solves a lot of problems and gets noticed.

    Football holds on to beat Morgan State 20-10

    Nice win. Clearly making progress each week with signs of improvement across most (not all) position groups. Will this most likely be a 3 or 4 win season? Yes. Is that unexpected or unacceptable for a first-year coach? Of course not. Still very bullish on Shinnick and his long-term plan. Go Tigers!

    Monmouth routs Tigers 42-23 in home opener

    Man, I wish there were as many fans coming for Skerry’s head as there are coming for Shinnick’s. Pete is TWO games into his Towson career. Two. Everyone settle down. He’s working with a bit of a patchwork roster and hasn’t had a full recruiting cycle to work with yet. The two teams we’ve played so far aren’t the dregs of college football. Clearly we’re in need of better QB play. I’m confident that will be addressed in the future.

    Delaware to FBS?

    Hens to the FBS?

    Nathan Kent is the projected QB1? He's a walk-on, correct?

    It's the track & field equivalent of having a football field with red, blue or black turf as some colleges do.
