    2022 Summer Camp Thread

    Interesting article. Disappointed that the author repeatedly refers to us as Towson State University. It’s only been a quarter century since the name changed to TU. Lazy/sloppy journalism

    Story on CAA expansion

    Several A-10 basketball members (Fordham, Richmond, Rhode Island) play football. I’m not sure the fact that DE plays football would be an impediment to them joining the A-10, assuming that issue ever came up. I agree, to a point, with your argument about the somewhat disjointed nature of the CAA as presently configured (State schools, private schools, HBCU’s, some emphasizing certain sports …..) But what I think supersedes all that is geographic proximity, in terms of the 2 divisions, which translates into savings on travel costs

    Story on CAA expansion

    Well, you kinda made my point for me. It’s all well and good to say we should leave the CAA, but it begs the question “where would we go”? As far as the A-10, I tend to agree that’s probably not in the offing. I would think DE would be more attractive to the A-10 as well as C of C. W&M would seem to be a good candidate for the Patriot League, but I suspect they would see that as a step down, not in terms of academics but in terms of caliber or on field competition. For several reasons, not the least of which is travel costs, I can’t think of a good fit for us outside the CAA at this time. Who knows though. Maybe the new AD will formulate an alternative

    Leave to where? I’d like to go to the A-10, but they already have 15 basketball teams. Even if they were inclined to expand, would the A-10 want us? Where would we go for football?

    2023 Offers/Commits

    Gotta like this scouting report. There’s a lot of reviews on his Twitter similar to this one, including some, like this one, that list him as a PG.

    2023 Offers/Commits

    Yeah, no doubt we’ll need a big (is this CT’s last season?). I think it’s more likely that we’ll have to go the portal route for that, but you never know-CT was a HS recruit

    2023 Offers/Commits

    Valpo, NIU & Bowling Green are solid MM offers. Is this Skerry’s 1st recruit out of the Midwest? Normally he pulls from DMV, Philly and used to be some from Florida (Prophete, Keith, Solomon U); I wonder what level of competition this kid plays against? Oswego is 45 miles from Chicago, but I’m guessing he plays against Chicago kids in AAU.; From the video clip I watched, he looks like slash to the basket kinda guy. I wonder if he has any semblance of an outside shot. He won’t be here for well over a year, so hopefully he has a good senior year in HS

    2022 Summer Camp Thread

    He said 51 new guys on the roster!! That’s a huge % of the team. I would have thought 20 or so, but 51. That’s an enormous task to make a cohesive team with what, 60% new players. 60% would be if there are 80 on the roster. I’m not even sure we have that many, so it could be higher than 60%

    Story on CAA expansion

    With DE, Hofstra, Monmouth and NE, the North, on paper, seems to me to be the stronger basketball division. I assume we’ll play a home & home with each team in our division and then play each team in the South 1X per season? That would be 19 conference games. I guess if they want to keep it at 18 you could just skip 1 Southern Division team each year, on a rotating basis. Will be interested to see how they configure the conference tournament and whether they’ll keep it in DC or look for alternate sites

    General Football News

    If football doesn’t generate money to begin with (by that I mean it doesn’t generate enough $ on its own to fund itself) I’m thinking they should have considered lower ticket prices, to get more people in the stands.

    Wouldn’t Elon Musk give his money to, you know, Elon?🤔 Seriously, as Mat posted earlier, when it comes to NIL, we’re not in the same universe as the big FBS schools. This website that we have now is at least a baby step in the right direction. Since there are apparently few if any rules regarding NIL (or at least no ability to enforce whatever rules there are) we’ve got to hope that the athletic department can find some well heeled alum willing to throw some of their money at some of our student athletes. I’m fine, in the abstract, with college athletes getting compensated for use use of their name, image and likeness, but when it becomes nothing more than a group of alum pooling their money to buy players, by outbidding another group of alum at a different school, then the whole thing stinks & should be blown up

    Tyrrell Pigrome transfers to Towson

    I don’t think it’s a stretch to say RA is desperate. Unless he makes the playoffs this season (which I believe triggers an automatic 1 year contract rollover) he’s likely out the door. So, realizing that the UAB transfer isn’t the solution (reports on this board were that he didn’t separate himself in spring practice) he resorts to a bit of a Hail Mary, by bringing in Pigrome. It’s doubtful, with his job hanging in the balance, that RA is going to hitch his wagon to the redshirt freshman QB (I think his name is Smith). I’m not sure I would tag Pigrome a quitter necessarily. A program jumper for sure, but he’s hardly alone in that regard. I’ve never understood why RA has never been able to recruit a dual threat RPO QB. Pigrome is obviously a stop gap, at best, but he’s probably a million times better than last year’s QB, the completely immobile and completely forgettable Ferguson. Truth be told, the QB carousel, in my mind, is an indictment of RA’s inability to recruit a quality QB. I’ll take it 1 step farther and call into question his ability to bring in a quality transfer QB other than Flacco. Look at Mahalik, Olson, Pass and Ferguson. All flamed out for different reasons, but the common denominator is the coach who brought them in.

    Will the game be before or after MPT airs “Masterpiece Theatre,” hosted by Alistair Cooke and “Upstairs Downstairs”? Actually, I think it’s kind of cool that MPT is airing the game. Maybe we can use this as a recruiting hook for high academic recruits 😆

    FWIW. I wonder if we pursued playing MD or not

    Tyrrell Pigrome transfers to Towson

    Agreed. True in both basketball and football
