    Nobody really knows who two years off will affect us. We did practice in the spring, but since I couldn't get out there, I'm not 100% sure what this team is going to look like. Everything starts with Juwon Pass. If he's a 6-4, 230-pound Flacco, we should be ok. Still might need one more playmaker on offense. You look at that last game against Elon in 2019 and we had Shane Leatherbury. He was the only real burner and the Phoenix knew that. Not having Caleb Smith in that game was also devastating, because he was coming on. Both Shanes are gone, but Jabari Allen is back. At 6-3, 215 with speed and hands, he has a chance to be special. But he has to stay healthy. He wasn't in 2019. The entire offensive line is back along with Darian Bryant. Who is Darrian Bryant? He's a 6-6, 330-pound Temple transfer, who missed the entire 2019 season due to an ACL. Because he was out, we had to move DeMarcus Gilmore to right tackle. Gilmore at 6-3, 360 is more of a guard. He did a serviceable job there, but having Gilmore and Bryant on the right side should be fun for us and not for our opponents. The entire offensive line is back with Bryant and guys like Brenand Cassells and Jon Desire. Kobe Young and Adrian Platt are the only experienced running backs. With Kobe's injury history and freshman Sabias Folley being talented but raw, I'd assume that they add another RB over the summer. Tight end is a bit iffy only because there are a few new guys including Marcus Joyner, a transfer from ODU. I don't expect another Chris Clark, but hopefully Joyner can provide some red-zone help. At receiver, we have some young guys that could really blossom if Pass or Jeff Miller are slinging it around. Charles Murphy should be a veritcal threat along with Smith. Ty'Shaun Granger has a lot of size and we have another big freshman coming in Isaiah Perkins (6-2, 200). But we also have veterans in Ryan Rutkowski, Darian Street, Allen, D'Ago Hunter ajd Daniel Thompson returning. Defensively, with Bryce Carter transferring, Ron Johnson not returning along with Quahon Alexander and Tibo Debaille coming off back issues, we desperately need to add help. Help is coming from what I hear in the form of at least two players. We still have Jesus Gibbs, Bryce Lauer, Marcus Bowman, Sam Gyeni and Vinny Shaffer returning, so we have some talent back, but need more depth and for guys to stay healthy. Kenjuan Manuel (6-1, 300+) arrives from St. John's as a three-star nose guard, but will have to beat out veterans in summer camp. At linebacker, the loss of Ricky DeBerry was softened by the addition of senior Darien Reynolds from Garnder-Webb. Thought that was a great pickup for a proven guy. I think Nygil Johnson finally gets his chance this season at OLB. Christian Dixon started in 2019 for DeBerry, so expect him to be better. We also added Michael Robinson Jr. from Ball State. He should have a role somewhere. Ryan Kearney should be involved as well. Obviously considering the tough circumstances with Chizz, that opens up another spot in terms of depth and on special teams. Watch out for Keyvone Bruton. He's a hard-hitting safety from Temple, who could also play in a Rover-type of a role. The secondary is usually the biggest question mark, but it should be a strength. Brandon Shuman is back. He missed the second half of the season in 2019 and you could tell we really struggled in the back end. We added Mark Collins Jr. (South Dakota), 6-3 D.J. Pratt (UVa) Charles Peoples (Juco/Ga St) and Makai Self (Penn State transfer). Shuman and Peoples could be the starters, but Collins, Self and freshman Shaeek Smith, the No. 2 corner in PA, who could also return kicks. At safety, Jamal Gay returns after an ACL injury that cost him 2019. He's back along with S.J. Brown, who had a pretty good 2019. We lose Coby Tippett, but also should get some help from Robert Topps, the Kansas transfer, who came off the bench in 2019. Bruton could also be moved back there if needed. I wonder if they move a big corner back there but they do have some young guys like Ubayd Steed, who sat out last season, who could be in the mix. It's a long way of saying, we could be pretty good or very good if Pass is the real deal. A little worried about the D-line. In other words, a lot rests on Pass to be the guy.

    Great get, especially considering the schools we beat out, which included Wichita, Cincinnati & Arkansas. He played in the Ohio Valley Conference, which I assume is better than the CAA, where he avg’d 15ppg & 8 rpg. Kid is a scorer-2,000 pts in HS, 1,000 points in 2 years of JUCO and 15ppg last season. Gotta give credit where credit is due-helluva job by Skerry and company. It’s intriguing to think about Holden, Rizzuto, Nolan and Holland (if healthy) all playing together this coming season.

    The transfer portal is a lot different than it was a decade ago when we added JB, Guthrie and Burwell. Guthrie was an undersized juco small forward and the others received little playing time at Georgetown and USF. I’m not saying we added a JB, but three proven double digit scorers, who can play both ends of the floor and add Holland, if he is healthy. We need our last ship to be a legit big that can defend, rebound and do the little things. We should be a lot better and the bench should be stronger as well. Curious about the three freshmen coming in, but there won’t be a lot of pressure on them to start or play a lot.

    We missed out on the playoffs thanks to that crooked AD from UNH that kept putting his team in the playoffs (for like 15 years), when they had no business being there because he had a seat on the selection committee (Marty Scarano). We pasted UNH like 66-35 on the final game of the season to end up with the same record as them, yet they got the bid. That LSU game was fantastic. I wouldn't trade it for the playoffs. We had the lead for a chunk of the game. We rushed for more yards than ANYONE did on LSU that entire season. We had 4 sacks vs. 0 for LSU. We played outstanding. Too bad we didn't get in the playoffs though, to your point, as that might have been our best team ever. If we had Enders the next season, I think we would have won it all. We were featured on 60 Minutes b/c of that game, we made some show like hard knocks for LSU, etc. That was so memorable.

    I don't get this team. How do you score zero goals in the second half?

    Given his success (at least on paper) of bringing in quality D1 transfers who don’t have to sit out a year, I wonder if he had to do it over, whether Skerry would have signed 3 freshman for the fall. I mentioned this in another post, but it seems to me that HS seniors (not the 5-star kids) might be the big losers under the new rule that D1 kids can now transfer without sitting out a year (at least the first time they transfer, that is). Why recruit an unproven HS kid, when you can bring in a guy who already has a D1 track record? Especially seeing as the HS kid will likely leave for greener pastures if he plays well. I know there’s some thought that the elimination of the sit-one rule will turn the Towson’s of the world into glorified farm teams for bigger schools, but Skerry has shown there’s enough D1 transfers out there to offset that concern, by in large. The pipeline of D1 transfers flows both up and down.

    At the risk of this sounding like sour grapes, seeing as we opted out of spring football, the FCS spring football playoffs have, in my estimation, little credibility and are of no interest to anyone outside the member institutions that are in the playoffs. The allure, if there ever was any, of spring football, was that when it was announced there existed the possibility there would be no fall 2020 football. Once the fall 2020 season took place, that made spring 2021 football largely irrelevant. I for one am glad we opted out of spring football, though, with that being said, I am a little suspicious whether the decision to do so was driven by the feelings on the subject of the players on the team (as is the claim of the school) or whether it was really driven by Ambrose’s wish to keep his powder dry until the fall, knowing that he might be better off coalescing as much talent as he can muster for this upcoming season, given that he’s in the last year of his contract, and may need to make the playoffs to keep his job

    Yes it’s a highlight tape but he looks like he plays slow (not in a bad way). Looks like he knows what he’s trying to do and doesn’t force or rush shots/drives/passes. His passing in transition is going to need to change though. We don’t do that when going 3-1 😂😂

    For so many years we have started offensive stiff's. Guys that played hard, but could not contribute offensively. Skerry loved these "junk yard dogs," but it held us back. Starters like Eddie Keith, Alex Thomas, Deshaun Morman, Brian Starr, Kris Walden (PK recruit), Victor, Parker-Rivera, McNeil, Tunstall....i could go on, but you get my point, most of these guys were offensive liabilities, but they were "Skerry guys." Look at this line-up and try to find an offensive dud....The top 3 were all-conference guys and Gray had good years w USD. CT is talented and young. He'll benefit from having skill around him. Holland and Gibson off of the bench? Gibson was our 2nd best offensive player last year (in my opinion) and I like him, but he may be the 7th best option with this roster. Finally Skerry and staff appear to be getting it.... I've been fooled by skerry before, but this is the most well rounded and offensively talented squad since his first recruiting class.....

    I'm really pumped about this add. Holden also averaged 1.7 steals a game with only 2 turnovers. And at 2 assists a game, he'll be one of our best passers. I really want to see a competent offense next year and with Holden, Nixon, Rizzuto, Gray and a returning CT (and not to mention Holland), we have more offensive firepower than I can remember. Excited that we are FINALLY not solely focusing on athletic ability or brute force and have picked up some talent!

    This guy called it coming out of Juco at the end of the video saying he should be Newcomer of the Year. He does play bigger than his 6-5 size. Has very long arms.

    Interesting, but I’d still roll with the OVC, with Belmont, EKU, Murray State, Austin Peay ....

    So with Cam Holden on board, we now have options G Nolan G Rizzuto F Holden F Gray C Thompson They can play the 6-5 Holden with Nolan, Rizzuto, Holland/Timberlake and CT in a smaller lineup

    As much as I want him to come to Towson and think that he’d be a great get... I don’t think anyone has ever done a live commitment like that to come here 😂

    He left months ago. I don’t think he fit the 3-4 defense as a 6-1 end. He had 4.5 sacks in 2019, which was two less than 2018. He might have fit better in previous system.
