    Is there hope?

    Right. It’s not so much that we’re going to be 1-3 after 4 games, as, realistically, the best we were going to be after 4 games was 2-2. Rather, it’s the quality of play, or lack thereof, that’s been so depressing, especially given the influx of FBS transfers. I’m going to keep an open mind on this team, and see how they do in the last 6 games, before we get trounced by JMU. If I were a betting man (which I’m not) I would say 4-7 will be the final record. I hope I’m wrong and it’s better, and I really hope I’m wrong and it’s not actually worse than 4-7
  2. In our criminal justice system, we have this pesky concept known as “innocent until proven guilty.” No school, TU or otherwise, is going to comment on a pending criminal case.
  3. I suspect the excuse du jour will be lack of cohesion, based on not playing last fall or this spring. This coming week vs SDSU will almost certainly be a 40+ point loss. We’ll see if the team throws in the towel when it comes off the bye. I think most of us objectively realize that a 4-win season might be the ceiling this year

    We didn’t buy out Kennedy & we’re not buying out Ambrose. In fact, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the University President forces TL to give him a contract extension

    It now runs through the end of next season. You can be sure opposing coaches are telling HS kids we are trying to recruit that RA is a lame duck, and if they come to Towson, they might be out in the cold once a new coach takes over. So, expect a ton more disappointing/underperforming transfers next season. Or maybe we’ll just give RA a contract extension 😳
  7. There’s really not much to say. The final score belies the vast gap in talent between us and NDSU. I guess it’s a moral victory in the sense I thought we’d lose 52-0. The play calling is putrid. The sad thing is you know that RA, with all the FBS transfers he brought in, was trying to build this team specifically for tonight’s game and the game at the end of the season with JMU. Either his assessment of the talent of the transfers he brought in was woefully off mark, and/or he & his staff has failed miserably in coaching them up. Next week vs SDSU promises to be very, very ugly. After the bye following next week’s game, it’s time to move on from Ferguson (who won’t be back next season in any event) and use the last 7 games of the season to audition the other QB’s on the roster. Of course, there’s always the possibility Ambrose brings in a talented transfer QB in the off-season. Oh, wait, never mind

    Incredible how unimaginative the play calling is. Not to mention predictable. When you’re outmanned, as we obviously are, why not at least try a gadget play? And another brilliant set of play calling down on the goal line, after the long kickoff return. It’s nothing short of infuriating

    What’s he charged with, impersonating an offense?

    He’s not getting fired. In fact, this isn’t even the last year of his contract. And don’t rule out the possibility he gets another contract extension

    Finding the right QB from this roster

    I’m of a mind that you go back to Ferguson the next two weeks. If he somehow resuscitates his season, all the better. If he doesn’t (and he probably won’t, seeing who we’re playing the next 2 weeks) then use the last 7 games of the season to see what you have in Amendola and/or the true freshman. I think we know what we have in Miller already. If I’m not mistaken, can’t freshman play up to 4 games without burning their redshirt season? If we’re 1-3 (hard to imagine we won’t be), and knowing we’re going to lose to JMU, we might as well use the last 7 games of the season as competition for next season, since the chances of going to the playoffs this season are remote, at best. Then, we can all wait with baited breath to see who Ambrose, the QB whisperer, brings in next season by way of the transfer portal
  13. By my count, this is Ambrose’s 12th year at the helm (1st season I believe was 2009; there was no 2020 season). The following is a list of FBS transfer QB’s he’s brought in during that time. Feel free to add in anyone I might have missed: Joe Brennan, from Wisconsin: ineffectual in his brief playing time Morgan Mahalak from Oregon: Played sparingly, due to injuries Kevin Olsen from Miami of Florida: Never saw the field at TU. Transferred to Charlotte where he did play, before being dismissed from the team following a rape charge (he was ultimately acquitted of the charge) Tom Flacco from W. Michigan & Rutgers: Outstanding in 2018, good, but not great, in 2019. Team went to 1 playoff game in his 2 years, getting trounced at home by Duquesne Jawon Pass from Louisville: Never saw the field here. Is now starting at Prairie View A&M Chris Ferguson from Liberty & Maine: Early returns are poor; benched in the 1st half of the 2nd game of the season What about HS QB’s recruited by Ambrose? In 12 years, only Peter Athens has excelled, and that was for just 1 season (2013). Ryan Stover & Connor Frazier started, but were only marginally successful. There was also Ellis Knudson. That leaves the JUCO category, which I believe Grant Enders falls in. I could be wrong, but I seem to recall that Ambrose passed on Enders out of HS. He then went to Holy Cross and a Junior College before ultimately making his way to Towson Conclusion: Ambrose’s record (which is not a small sample size) of bringing in & developing QB’s, be they HS recruits or transfers, is dismal
  14. A certain poster, who modesty prevents me from mentioning, foreshadowed this in his post after the Morgan game. I believe I, er, he, said the offense was underwhelming, the QB didn’t look terribly impressive and that a top-tier FCS team would have dropped 50-60 points on Morgan.
  15. Meanwhile, a whopping total of 3 people so far have posted about tonight’s game. Granted, it’s a Saturday night, but I also think it speaks to the level of interest in the Ambrose-lead Tigers
