    Opening "A lot of encouraging things. The intent of this group is off the charts. We have to get healthy, but I can't complain about work ethic, attitude, coachability. Our bodies are getting back to what our teams normally look like. I thought last year during the pandemic, I didn't think we look like we normally look. We have some guys that look the part." On Curtis Holland "I thought he looked good yesterday. I'm not a doctor. He's a good enough player to help us. Timberlake comes back tomorrow. We know he's going to help us and has helped us, because he's as competitive as they come." On versatility "For Tiger Fans, Rizzuto and Nolan bring talent, toughness, energy, leadership. They're everyday guys. As a staff, we're encouraged by Charles (Thompson) and Chase Paar playing together and looking good. That is is in the equation. Chase has looked really good the last couple of weeks. He arrived here with a bit of a quad injury. His body has been changing. He has some skills with shooting and dribble handoffs. He's 6-10 and is a wall. He's doing a good job with changing his body. We also have Gibby on the court during workouts and he such a good shooter. Cam (Holden) will be a better shooting threat than people realize. He looks good. He never really lifted so he's benefitting. He can deck it and pass it. Until you are healthy, then you can put it together. We decided to play the veteran guys more together. There is some spacing that can help us. Charles has been great. He's such a worker. He's as tough a guy as we've had. He's a leader. I can't say enough about the type of guys they are. You want everybody to be 100%. That has a lot to do with your success. I can't complain about intent, work ethic, accountability, toughness. It's been awesome." On this summer We had a great summer in Fobbs' senior season. We had our best offensive year. We played more because we weren't as banged up. I appreciated being able to do what we normally had done (no Summer in 2020). We haven't done it in so long. It sounds simple. It's hard to build habits when you don't have a routine. It makes you appreciate what you had. We're out recruiting here. The veteran guys we brought in they look differently. That makes you feel good. You have four guys that have played a lot and you still have Nick, Juwan, Gibson. Juwan is working his tail off. He has skill and is bigger than he ever has been. Played at under 220 last year. Will play at a little under 230. Hick has played well before he got hurt. Gill is a worker. Tyler Coleman is making strides with his body. Has a high IQ. Played for some good coaches. As his body changes, his game will evolve into that. Chris Biekeu is an older freshman. His body looks great. He has to take care of the ball. I've been pleased with Darrick Jones. If he takes care of the ball and continues to work, he is a heck of an athlete. He has to be solid from 3. He has the tools. He's had a good spring. He didn't have any of that last year. There is a path for him ane he controls that. He's doing a good job. Objectives on finishing up practice: 1)Get Healthy. 2)Continue to build habits. 3)As we are playing around with a couple of different concepts, do we do a good enough job evaluating that minus some key guys. It's a little like spring football. Two years when we changed our offense, we used it all summer. We're trying to play with a little better spacing. It would help if we had everyone on the floor. I have four guys that played a lot on a good team. The four transfers we brought in late I trust those guys. We have a freshman in Hicks who has a good path. Curtis Holland is talented enough to play. He has a high IQ. He's very strong, athletic and can shoot. There's going to be competition. We know Nolan, Rizzuto and Timberlake are going to play. As far as the freshmen (along with Jones and Biekeu) can they be everyday guys. Paar moves better than we thought. We're going to play a skilled lineup with two guards, but we can play two bigs. We have some versatility.

    It has been a few days since anything was posted here so I thought I would say hi and post an introduction and thank you from our family. My name is Dan and I am the dad of Connor Maloney. We are all very excited to be a part of the Tiger family. Connor is an incoming freshmen PWO who is an OLB. He's 6 1 1/2 and 210 lbs. He can definitely put on a lot more weight with a college lifting program. He played at St Vincent Pallotti HS in Laurel, MD and was a big part of their 2019 MIAA-B championship. His senior season was cut down to only 3 games but included a win against Calvert Hall (MIAA-A) and a gut-wrenching double overtime loss to Mt St Joseph (MIAA-A). He was named MIAA Defensive Performer of the week all 3 weeks. In 2 varsity seasons at Pallotti he started in all 15 games and racked up 114 tackles with 34 TFLs, 8 sacks and 49 QB pressures. He also recorded 1 safety, 3 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries with 1 blocked 1 PAT and FG. He also scored 2 Def TDs while handling all punting and place kicking, which he definitely will not be doing at TU. He was even invited to join the Big 33 team as a late replacement at OLB but turned it down so he didn't risk coming into the TU football camp with an injury. We have no idea what this upcoming season will bring or if he will even see the field but I know that he is excited to work hard and learn from the coaches while making some lifelong friendships. My wife and I (Melissa) look forward to meeting everyone at the first tailgate......we'll be the couple with the Towson Maloney jerseys on! https://www.hudl.com/profile/9500855/Connor-Maloney

    You'll get used to the negative Nancies floating around this board. Nothing but a natty is acceptable for some.

    I was thinking about this the other day. It's so difficult nowadays to be a two-sport athlete in college, because so much time is devoted to one sport. So I believe I covered at least 10 men and women's athletes who played both sports. If you guys want to add one or two, be my guest. 1)Mike Locksley (football/basketball). Yes, the current Maryland coach was a safety here in the late eighties and wound up walking on the basketball team. 2)Gina Profili (WLax/Field hockey). A hall of Famer who graduated in 1991. Scored 24 goals with eight assists in lacrosse and was an All-Conference three times in field hockey. 3)Meredith Barron (Vball/Wbb). Played volleyball in the late nineties and walked on to the basketball team. 4)Nick Williams (football/lacrosse). Former running back and midfielder, now coaching women's lax. Scored 29 goals and had 22 assists in his career. Had four goals in the 2005 NCAA Tournament against Cornell. In football, ran for 1,985 yards, which at the time was good for fifth all-time. 5)Tommy Breaux (Football/basketball). Great athlete who played wide receiver at 6-8, 200 after transferring from Blinn JC. Was more of a defensive stalwart in hoops. Great shotblocker from 2006-08. 6)Dan Ross (Football/lacrosse). Late nineties played football at defensive tackle and was a 6-2, 280-pound attackman. 7)Michelle Robinson (soccer/track and field). One of the all-time great goalkeepers in women's soccer also threw/put the shot and had a record throw in 1994 of 40+ feet that stood for a decade+. 8)Kelly Robinson (wball/track). A Hall of Famer mainly due to her dominance in the javelin in 2006. Also very good rebounder in hoops. 9)Peter Athens (football/lax). Played just one year of lacrosse, but was known for helping the 2013 football team for getting to the 2014 National Title game. 10)Jeff Bolser (punter/baseball). Pitched for the baseball team and was a really good punter in the early nineties. 11)Tom Flacco (football/basketball). Didn't have a lot of success in baseball as a hitter, with an average of .221 with a homer and 11 steals. Had much more success as a quarterback where he finished his two-year Towson career with 49 passing TDs and 17 INTs with a 61% completion rate. Ran for 1,076 yards and six TDs. 12)Olivia Finckel (Vball/hoops). Another outstanding athlete who walked on to a hoops team. She was a great volleyball player. Joined the team in the second semester of the 2019-20 season. Scored her only point on a free throw. 13)Terrance Brooks (Football/T&F). Tragically passed away in 2011 at just 47. Was the ECC discus champion and first-team All-America offensive guard. Hall of Famer in both sports. Was 1985 Male Athlete of the year. 14)Terry O'Brien (Football/T&F). Hall of Famer was inducted in 1992. He was more well-known as a long-time trainer. He was a place-kicker and offensive lineman in the mid-seventies. He scored 72 points in 1974, which was a D3 record at the time that stood for 18 years. Was also an indoor track shot put champion. 15)Jennifer Breakey (lax/Field hockey). Another great lacrosse player, who also played field hockey. Graduated in 1993. Hall of Famer. Was All-ECC in 1992 when he scored 38 goals with 13 assists. 16)Frank Mezzanotte (football/lacrosse). I added this great athlete because he's in the Hall of Fame and graduated in 1973. His nephew Peter was a solid player about a decade ago. Was also a linebacker along with with defenseman, who was third-team All-American in 1973. Trying to stick with players I saw or covered from 1989-2021. There were many more athletes in the Hall of Fame and not in the HOF, who played two and even three sports in the 50s and 60s, because that was the norm.

    This will be my last report until October. Hopefully, by then, we will have all 16 players (including walk-ons) there as there are several players rehabbing injuries (Gibson, Gray, Timberlake) and several guys were out today (Holden, Holland, Hicks). Cam Holden was in a boot the last time I saw him three weeks ago and was shooting on the side. But was not participating in drills. His form, though a bit unorthodox. It was going in from 3 early and often. Better shooter than I thought, even if was just shooting it around flat-footed. I thought Rizzuto shot it better than I had seen in the first session, but as I said before. Not worried about him or Terry Nolan. Both guys have high IQs and can make basketball plays. I do want to see Holden in action because I know he's also a baller who can score. My big worry is Curtis Holland. Nobody on this team is more of a pure shooter and we have some pretty good shooters. But I don't know if he can post every day and every game physically. The first time I saw Chase Paar, I was impressed with his size, but he looked a bit slow. Apparently had struggled with a leg issue. This time, he was playing a stretch 4/5 and sinking 3s from everywhere. I wasn't sure he had it in him, because he never really shot 3s at GW. It's possible that they can play Thompson with Paar on the court at the same time since he can stretch the floor as can Juwan Gray when he gets back. But Holden, Nolan, and Rizzuto should be a lock to start. Personally, I'd rather see Holden at the 4, but not sure who will be at the 3. Holland? Injury and confidence issues. Timberlake? Coming off an injury and needs to be more efficient. They could go with Hicks, Rizzuto and Nolan, but not sure they want to start a freshman at the point or combo. I did get to see Tyler Coleman, who wasn't there the first time due to getting his second vax. He's a lot bigger than I thought at 6-8, 230. He has a ways to go with his body and his lack of explosion is a concern if he's going to play the post. However, he has Thompson, Biekeu, Paar, Gray and Holden ahead of him at the 4/5. A redshirt is certainly a possibility. Biekeu wasn't hurt the last time I was out there and he still didn't appear 100%. He's a big dude at 6-7, 235. Doesn't really stretch the floor. Does have potential with that size and length. You do need depth and he could see some minutes at the 5. More later with some comments from PS.

    Nice! When did you play at TU? What position? Congratulations. Yes, the players do get tickets but between his old friends, new friends, previous coaches and visiting family we figured it would be best if we bought some season tickets and then he can really do what he wants with his tickets. Plus we wanted to support the program.

    Thanks! I cant wait for this season to start. I should have also mentioned that he is an Eagle Scout......not your usual LB....proud dad...sorry. I hope he can contribute to this season's success on the playing field. If he cant contribute right away on the playing field, though, I know he will do it on the practice field helping prepare the team and learning from his coaches for when his opportunity comes. At Pallotti he didn't handle booting the kick offs because he led the team in special teams tackles so they moved him to inside gunner as soon another player learned to kick a little. 64 days until the first game! Can't wait! I look forward to sharing in all of your son's successes. Best of luck to everyone. The fans will have a lot to cheer about this year.

    With all due respect I am new to the football family and do not know much about the past teams but all I can say is we are not going to “suck” this season!!!!

    Don't love this. As a non-Baltimore area native, i'm not excited by this since I have no local connection. I want to see use play more competitive games but I understand the need for warm-up games I honestly doubt anyone without a connection to either school will care. I'm tired of us trying to be 'Baltimore's team - It's just not going to happen. Focus on being better connected to alumni and build our Towson community that way not trying to lean into the geographic area. I've said this before it's crazy to me that we have zero DC area alumni events; it's all Baltimore and some NYC and the one Orioles spring training thing in Florida.

    I am a parent and I think it’s ridiculous and it takes away from collegiate sports! Getting a free education and college experience without being in debt is appropriate! This erases history and traditional values. I do not support it one bit!!

    Really? What about the free education, COA and room and board? I don’t think that people are thinking this thing through.will be the biggest mess in the history of AMATEUR sports! You wanna take income?AW2 and 1099 will be attached to it.

    It’s the Wild West though I’m sure they will be given some guidance. Players at our level won’t be able to make much, but a handful of “stars” could make a little something in endorsements.

    Who has seen the Towson Athletics commercial on YouTube? It's a 30-second spot. Pretty bad ass with football, hoops and other sports. I can't seem to copy it and paste it here. (Ok, I figured it out).

    Matt…. fantastic job as usual. Good health to you. Back surgery always scares me as far as the recovery process. May take Gibson a bit longer so I’m glad we’ve added experienced backcourt players to pick up the slack etc. I’m gonna say Jones Jr gonna step up and help us. Just a hunch. I enjoy all the coverage of weight room and conditioning etc. I know it’s more important in this day and age. That all being said.. get them shots up guys. More basketball skill work than ever before is the key for any sustained success this season. If we can’t consistently knock down perimeter shots in 21-22’ then we are gonna be in trouble. Yes of course we need to defend better but the college game today is knocking down them 3’s. Let’s all encourage Holland.. we see what happened to Ben Simmons. We need all hands on deck. Yes we are a suffering fan base that hates sugar coating anything but I plead with you all and even myself.. more positive comments on the board because these kids are reading everything and social media beats on many of them.
