    Holden leads MBB over Penn 76-61

    Another defector? Are you talking about Holland or someone else?

    Pittsburgh preview

    Yes, that damn BC game is one that comes to mind

    Pittsburgh preview

    This is a game we should be able to win, but we will find a way to lose. This happens time and again, we're playing against a Power 5 school (are they still called Power 5) that's not very good and we appear halfway decent. Someway/somehow we will not win tonight. Fingers crossed that I'm wrong. Go Tigers.

    MBB falls to JMU 81-72 (story up)

    This season (like everything since March) is a lost cause and I'm not judging anyone based on what's happening. We have a bunch of new players and 2 pauses b/c of COVID.

    MBB faces Iona and Morgan State this week

    Was it cancelled b/c of COVID in our program or Iona? If it's Iona, then it shouldn't affect out game tomorrow.

    First magazine is out

    Not sure if this was addressed already (since it appears to be from July), but College Sports Madness picked us to be #2 in CAA (and this was before Zane). They picked the Hens to be #1 in CAA. https://www.collegesportsmadness.com/article/18603

    Best chance to make NCAA Tourney

    It makes sense that a big league like the ACC would want this. B/c if the teams don't start playing until January then they lose out on many of the non-conference games where the rack up the Ws. Many of these teams are barely over .500 and rely on the out of conference wins to pad their resume. Generally the NCAA does not have teams with sub .500 records in the Tourny.

    Zane coming back to TU?

    https://www.newsbreak.com/news/1545530061682/nc-state-showing-interest-in-uab-transfer-forward-makhtar-gueye Not sure how reliable this source is, but it appears on August 12, 2020 there was a story that NC State was kicking some tires.

    Crickets

    I disagree and think a number of people will miss the team not playing this fall. I would assume RA has spoken to the most important people, the players, coaches, etc. Otherwise, I'm not overly concerned about statements from the Admin, etc. regarding football or any sports right now during this very crazy and fluid situation. I don't think it's unreasonable to sit and wait to see how shit plays out before making public statements. Look at Big 10 and Pac 12, they were all about going forward with football within conference and making alternative plans, but it was never going to happen. Everything is upside down. I'm not sure what kind of bubble you all live in, but there's a whole lot more pressing issues than whether Towson football or any football is played this fall. Millions of people are out of work and/or are working at reduced salaries wondering how they will make ends meet. People with children are worried whether their children will be safe at school this year and if they are not going to be in school, how will they work while also watching their children. Nobody cares about any sports right now. I'm a diehard Mets fan and have maybe watch 4 innings total this year. Sports of any kind is the last thing on my mind. I live in NYC and it's a fucking ghost town. Sorry, I just need to vent a little. Hope you all are well.

    2020 CAA season

    Look at the latest story with the Miami Marlins (https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29547211/two-mlb-games-postponed-marlins-outbreak). These are professional athletes with millions of dollars on the line and twelve members of the team (including some staff) now have COVID. Now these individuals are staying in Philly for the next few days to undergo testing, etc. How does anyone expect any college sport, let alone football, to go forward? Football has more personnel than any other sport and there will surely be no bubble for college sports. Could you imagine if a team travels to another state and then a bunch of players test positive. I'm sure the colleges will love the idea of putting up a football team at a hotel for a week or so. Who knows how the Marlins players got sick. Hypothetically (and probably a good guess) a few players went out to a bar/club and got it and then possibly spread it amongst the team. Professional athletes have lots of $$ on the line and you would think they would be incentivized not to go out to the bars/club or engage in behaviour at which they may be exposed, but that was possibly not the case. Now, you're going to tell me that college athletes/students are going to not put themselves in risky behaviour that may potentially expose themselves, teammates, staff, etc. when they have little on the line. What happens when a coach or staff member unknowingly spreads it some players and one of the players has a bad reaction. Could you imagine the lawsuits? There is a lot of money on the line, but there is a whole lot more at stake if they try to go forward and it fails badly.

    2020 CAA season

    It's only July, I will be shocked if football (or in-person anything) will go forward at JMU, Elon or any other college this year.

    COVID 19 and NCAA Athletics

    I just look at what's happening with MLS and even MLB. MLS has far more resources and created this bubble and so far at least two teams have dropped out. They have postponed several other games due to positive tests. The NBA also had a bunch of players drop out of the restart b/c of health concerns or positive tests. The measuring stick right now is how the professional leagues are attempting this and if they are having so much difficulty pulling this off in what they believe is an ideal environment (this bubble), how on earth can anyone reasonably expect college athletics to go forward. I hate to say it but college sports are f***ed in 2020-2021.
  15. How many of you really think there will be any college sports this fall or maybe even for the 2020-2021 season? I would put the odds at less than 10% for the fall and maybe 25% for the year. Do you think this pandemic may force schools and conferences to re-think the lay out of conferences and consider creating geographically local conferences to cut down on flights, travel, etc. for the purpose of cutting down on risks?
