    https://twitter.com/RoccoMiller8/status/1577342564939681793?s=20&t=y-uCr8SqtblQRAX-5_iJ9A Yeah, the website is a little slow on the change. I was on a plane when I saw it so I couldn't link the tweet source. But here it is. Read through the thread to understand how the rest of the teams are being shuffled throughout this event.

    And of course, things change. Instead of the Jackbunnies on Friday, we now get Fairfield.

    Punchless Tigers fall to No. 6 Delaware 24-10

    So much for having that offensive coordinator pedigree as a head coach.

    Football falls to UNH 37-14

    Dropping down a division is absurd. Dropping the coach is an excellent idea. When you're supposed to be an offensive mind and you constantly put out these results, not just in these first 4 games, but throughout the last 3-4 years and you fail to develop any quarterback that you bring into this program whether they be transfer or recruited from HS (other than Flacco) in the last 5-6 years, you've failed at your job. The offense is a joke. The playcalling is a joke. The clock management is a constant joke. The defense is a comedy troupe -- no pass rush, no fill, no blitzing, no attack, all cushion. The only somewhat capable individual is the punter and then special teams goes and wastes his best punt of the day by allowing the return for a TD. Getting burned by an onside kick on the opening kickoff is on the entire staff -- lack of preparation. Fortunately, there's a new AD in town with hopefully a fresh perspective and can take a clean, unbiased look at the program. Barring a miracle turnaround, it's over. Time to cut bait and find new blood.

    We're on to UNH....Tigers fall to West Virginia 65-7

    Part II has been a pox on this defense for at least as long as the Championship Game year. It's unnerving to watch def. coordinator after def. coordinator come in here and not run an attacking style of defense, especially when it comes to long yardage situations. Here ya go, catch it after 15 yards and then we'll tackle you to move the sticks. Bring a blitz or 3 and let the corners press cover.

    Volleyball 2022

    Pretty stunning result but when you look at the way the match played out, we were definitely the dominant team. After having a thousand turn out at the last home game, it would be great if our new athletic department can spin this weekend's results into something big for the two Hampton games this coming weekend. Pack the house and make it the toughest place any of the opponents will play this season. We're thisclose to being called a volleyball school. 😎

    Bucknell preview

    Line is 20 1/2. Until researching Lehigh last night for a potential play, I didn't realize just how bad Bucknell was last season. Hopefully the line is right and we can have a comfortable evening.

    Shake up in Athletic Department

    In other news, can someone explain what the heck this 'Goh' stuff is that the department has decided to brand everything with? What am I missing with this absurd spelling?

    Tigers in the NFL/CFL/USFL/XFL thread

    Saw Tibo in person in Vancouver on Friday night. He alternated series with the other NG and he got himself a sack in the 3rd quarter of a 23-16 loss to Saskatchewan. I wasn't fast enough to get a picture of the jumbotron with the Towson listing on it.

    Shake up in Athletic Department

    Especially since he's a Towson alum. He already comes in with the knowledge of the issues here.

    Shake up in Athletic Department

    I'd imagine Mr. Bard is going to find that trying to market Towson athletics will be very similar to marketing LaSalle athletics. Just took a peek at LaSalle's hoops attendance figures from last year and they averaged 2100 for 16 home games with a high of 5800 for Villanova (most likely a large majority of Nova people). Hopefully he can unlock some ideas that will attract people to SECU and Unitas this season and that the teams are successful enough to make people want to come back.

    Might be the only fanbase that would take a dump on winning a regular season championship and earning a ring for those efforts.

    General MBB thread 2021-22

    The schedule on the Towson BB site says Mercer/South Alabama/TBA so the organizers haven't quite figured out who to put in that last slot. I'm hoping it'll be either South Dakota State or Valpo/Evansville as one comes with a recent pedigree and the other comes from a highly-regarded conference. Given that you have 2 teams from the same conference in this thing, I'd expect the latter. Whatever they decide, leave JMU out of it. I want to remember our last game against them as that thorough ass-kicking we gave them in the fake H-burg.

    And now UMASS is on board…at their place…because heaven forbid that a 3rd-rate A-10 team goes on the road anywhere. At least we’ll be fully tested when conference season begins. Football got to the final game on the back of a monster road record. It’s time for basketball to do the same.

    General MBB thread 2021-22

    One of the better suggestions I saw today, I think it was from the D1 schedule twitter guy, said how schools should schedule a home-and-home in-season series so they can each benefit and they fill 2 spots on the schedule rather than just 1. I'd imagine in future years with Pat not being able to get some of these other scaredy-cats to come to our place that this could be a potential solution. It's pretty dumb that we're gonna have to do so much road work in the non-con this season. Hopefully the price tags are decent.

    General Football News

    Jesus is a freak!! Gibbs makes Bruce Feldman’s list of biggest freaks in college football at #37. Since it’s behind a paywall, here’s the write-up: A transfer from South Carolina, 6-4, 260-pound Gibbs really impressed NFL scouts with his tape against North Dakota State, making plays all over the field. He also made five tackles and two TFLs against San Diego State. Injuries limited him to four games last season, but he was productive, making 15 tackles and three TFLs. In the offseason, Gibbs vertical-jumped 37 inches, got 10 feet in the broad jump and had a terrific 10-yard split of 1.58 seconds. He also bench pressed 400 pounds.

    General MBB thread 2021-22

    The Savannah tournament could help make up for a very blah non-con slate. All depends on which teams they put us with. But teams are so scared to play mids who might be decent and they sure as heck won’t play them at their place. Loyola and Morgan are just laughable. They’re insignificant in the overall landscape.

    MLax thread

    I knew it was gonna be a long day when we gave up the first goal 20 seconds in and then the first time we tried a clear Brennan threw it over everyone's head. Not much you can really say about this one as Delaware played really well on defense and stopped whatever rotations and ball movement we tried. We just weren't quick enough offensively to generate any good looks or get runs at the goal. Brennan was a wagon in the 3rd quarter when we were killing off the penalties and he kept us in it. Only criticism I'd have is that their best player beat us on the same move 3 or 4 times and I'd have liked to have seen us rotate our best D on him to shadow. Maybe we did that in the 2nd half and I didn't notice it clearly enough. But we got neutralized pretty good at the offensive end and just didn't generate anything necessary to win.

    I saw that tweet by Cam over the weekend where he said he was done dirty and he'd never forget it. Whatever 'it' was had better be something a lot more significant than bringing in someone of Sylla's skill. Because if it's about Sylla and Cam was worried about being 'the man', then I feel like that says a lot about his personality and a lot of it is in a negative light. It's hard to figure out what a lot of these athletes are thinking nowadays but this one is incredibly mindboggling.

    https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/the-bold-new-college-basketball-flex-scheduling-model-that-would-bring-big-nonconference-games-into-february/ Hopefully, the CAA is one of the 22 leagues involved in these discussions. It would certainly spice up February basketball and probably allow us to avoid scheduling boring scrimmages for December non-con home games.
  25. Wonder if this was from the flagrant foul.
