    If necessary, we should post State Police at the MD-DE border, to prevent that from happening

    I would think Jared from Subway would have a better chance of getting the gig

    Perhaps, but we’re unquestionably in the top tier

    We’re a state funded institution, in arguably the most progressive state in the country. Under these circumstances, it’s not a stretch to think that the path of least resistance for the university President (who has a vested interest in appeasing as many people as possible, in order to maintain her position) will be to make a hire that avoids the ire of certain noisy factions. We can only hope that the selectee is truly qualified, though if that’s the case it may be nothing more than a happy coincidence

    I have the same concern. I want the best person to get the job, regardless of ethnicity and/ or gender. If the best candidate is a progressive Aleutian transgender dwarf, wonderful, make the hire. What I don’t want to see happen is that factors unrelated to who’s the most qualified will come into play, in the names of “diversity” and “inclusion.” I think it would be naive to think that the search committee doesn’t realize it’s selection will be scrutinized by some (including those who have no ties to TU) who won’t be happy if the new AD doesn’t check off certain boxes important to them
  6. I guess other than the Oregon State W years ago, this is the biggest win vs a “name” program during the Skerry era. Especially encouraging given that we did it without 3 of our rotation players, and having played the night before. Helluva game for Timberlake. I wouldn’t count on too many more 25 point games from him, but hopefully this will boost his confidence going forward. With Holden & Nolan, we’re going to need a 3rd scoring option. Maybe Timberlake (along with occasionally Gibson, Rizzuto and Gray) can be that guy, and avg 10-12 ppg

    I’ve got $1.98 in loose change I found lying around. I say we pool our vast resources and get on the committee!!😆

    Hopefully the search committee won’t be stacked with “yes men/yes women” who are her stooges

    Holden leads MBB over Penn 76-61

    Benimon had 20 points, 21 boards and 2 assists vs Oregon State. Is that our only P5 W in the Skerry era, or am I forgetting any?

    Holden leads MBB over Penn 76-61

    I’m not sure if even Benimon had such a dominant game as Holden did today. He’s unquestionably the best player we’ve had since Benimon. If Nolan can play going forward even close to how he played today, well, that’s a nice 1-2 punch. The 3rd scoring threat can rotate from game-to-game; one night Rizzuto, one night Gray …. I’m trying to keep this in perspective, as this was against a presumably tired Penn team, who I’m not sure how good they are in the first place, but we were also without Gibson, Rizzuto and Gray. That run to start the 2nd half was a thing to behold, but let’s see where we are after we leave Las Vegas

    No, actually you wrote “not sure Gibson & Rizzuto are injury related”

    Is Holden a 1 & done, or can he come back next year, if he wants to?

    MBB routs Hampton 78-54

    Hard to know what to takeaway from last night’s game. Hampton appears to be a pretty bad team, who’s offense consisted almost entirely of chucking up 3’s. Still, a W is a W. As has been pointed out by others, the officiating was awful and totally ruined the flow of the game. As to our guys, it’s very clear that Cam Holden is our best player. Very impressed with him thus far. Terry Nolan had a good bounce back game and hopefully will be a key contributor this season. I realize it’s a small sample size, but I haven’t been impressed with Rizzuto. Maybe he’s dealing with an injury, so hopefully he’ll improve. Paar…well, he’s got a nice foul shot. Other than that, I’m not sure how much value he’s going to add. Kudo’s to the returning guys (Timberlake, Gibson & Thompson). They all play hard and Gibson seems to be a guy who can be an offensive spark off the bench. Speaking of sparks, I think we all can agree that Hicks provides a defensive spark off the bench. Hopefully his offensive game will improve with experience and playing time. Hopefully Gray will be back before we start conference play. If it’s truly a 1-2 week issue, that should be the case. I think I saw Holland’s face on a milk carton at the grocery store the other day. What a waste of a scholarship

    MBB routs Hampton 78-54

    It’s almost odds defying how every season, without fail, we lose 1-2 players with injuries or leaving the program. Then, we go from a position of apparent depth to one of being perilously close to being undermanned

    Elon rocks Football 37-14

    Impressive research. Fascinating to me that there are 47 FCS teams that avg less ypg passing then us. Perhaps some of them are teams like Citadel, who purposely rarely pass. Also interesting that we’re ranked even lower in rushing ypg. Not terribly surprising that only 31 teams average fewer ypg & only 34 score fewer ppg. As far as the stats on D, the one that jumped out at me is how bad we are on 3rd down conversions. I’m at the point where when it’s 3rd & 10+, I shrug my shoulders and say “they’ve (the other team) got us right where they want us.”

    Elon rocks Football 37-14

    Complete sh1t show. On D, we have no pass rush & no pass coverage. On O, I’m not asking anyone to do the research, but I think it’s safe to assume we have one of the most impotent passing offenses in the entire FCS. The 3 QB rotation was bush league. We have 1 QB who can run, but struggles to throw, another who can’t run, but maybe can throw, & a 3rd who can’t do either. I fully expect JMU to take out their anger at the CAA on us next week, as they walk out the door. I’m thinking 63-3, or something thereabouts. Memo to the AD: PLEASE FIRE Ambrose

    MBB crushes Albany 77-56

    Just perused the box score. Holy cow, 47% from the field, 45 boards, 14 assists, 10 steals, 4 blocks

    MBB crushes Albany 77-56

    Watched the game on ESPN3. A lot to like; the ball movement, athleticism, depth, tenacity on D & the boards. Love what I saw from Nolan, Rizzuto & Holden. Big kudos to Gibby, splashing the 3’s. Thompson was a beast inside. Also got some good minutes I thought from Gray & Hicks. Obviously the foul shooting has to improve. I have no idea if Albany is any good, but to go into their gym (with what looked like a pretty good crowd) and run them off the floor was nice to see. Also liked that we pressed some on D, with some good results. Looks like a 9-man rotation, with the guys I mentioned above, plus Paar & Timberlake. Looking forward to the home opener Saturday
  24. With the exception of QB. And who should be accountable?🤔
  25. Not necessarily. We might finish 4-7
