    Story on Morgan/Towson series

    Debatable, but that’s part of what message boards are all about. I would posit that JMU is going to get more favorable consideration, based on reputation, from the committee than we ever will, regardless of who JMU plays. In any event, I’m not opposed to us playing Morgan. As I’ve said previously, it’s a no-brainer economically and is a “road game” that is a home game for me

    Story on Morgan/Towson series

    The “road” games vs Morgan can be quasi-home games. I mean, if you’re a local TU fan, there’s really no reason you can’t attend those games. I would think we should also be able to put together some buses to transport students to Morgan. I don’t see it necessarily as trying to be “Baltimore’s team.” The economics of a “road game” that costs nothing more than a 15-20 minute bus ride is the prime mover, as far as I’m concerned. And, what other non-CAA FCS teams are in the immediate region? Howard & Del State are the only ones that immediately come to my mind. As far as W’s vs Morgan helping us make the playoffs, I doubt a W vs Morgan carries much weight with the committee. OTOH, an L could be devastating to our chances of making the playoffs.

    2022 commits and offers

    He has offers from, amongst others, Northern Iowa and San Jose State. Have to wonder how interested he is in us, when he calls us “Towson State”

    Story on Morgan/Towson series

    From an economic standpoint, it’s a no-brainer. As to on the field, it’s sort of a no-win-beat them and the reaction from most will be “meh, you were supposed to beat them;” lose to them, and our fan base (what there is of it) will meltdown

    Predictions on 2021 regular season record?

    I’m aware of the talent that’s been added. I hope we go 11-0. I’m merely saying that, notwithstanding the talent on paper, there are variables which will impact the season that will have to play themselves out. I had great expectations for the 2019 season, that is, until we were decimated by injuries. I don’t care how deep we are on paper, we have to have the good fortune to avoid a repeat of the wave of devastating injuries that we suffered in 2019. And, as far as I’m concerned, the jury is out on whether we brought in the right QB. I stand by everything I wrote in my last post. That doesn’t mean I’m not hoping for the best; just means the games are played between the lines, not in preseason polls

    Predictions on 2021 regular season record?

    Other than being fodder for discussion and bulletin board material, these rankings are just window dressing. There are so many variables that we have no idea how they will play out, that will ultimately determine how we do this fall, including the biggest and most obvious, in my opinion-injuries. Other issues include how will the new QB, Ferguson, perform, will the FBS RB transfer, Howard, spark the running game, can the D pressure opposing QB’s, what effect will the 2-year layoff have on those players who haven’t suited up since 2019, can we beat 1 of the big 3 on our schedule (NDSU, SDSU, JMU)…. By my way of thinking, if we lose all 3 games vs the big 3, we’ll have to go at least 7-1 in the remaining 8 games to make the playoffs, and that could be a very tall order. Therefore, it would behoove us to win 1 of those games vs the big 3

    2021 Spring & Summer Transfer Thread

    Best of luck to you both. I wish him nothing but open holes to run through and all the TD’s he can eat

    Just a word of caution, TUTigers2012 😆

    The new normal for the Towson’s of the world. De-emphasis on recruiting high school kids & focus on disgruntled transfers or transfers who, for whatever reason, want to return closer to home. And some of the high school kids you do recruit are with the understanding they’re likely not coming here as freshman, but might come here once they inevitably enter the transfer portal. Why should we emphasize recruiting high school kids when, for the most part, they’re either not going to pan out in a big way or, if they do pan out, they’ll probably kick us to the curb in favor of transferring to a bigger program

    Quarterback Transfer Portal

    No offense to Ferguson, but this kind of feels to me like a “meh” signing, especially with all the QB’s available in the portal. He was good, not great, at Maine, but adds little as a running threat, when the clear trend is dual threat QB’s. The question this signing begs is whether Ferguson is better than Jawon Pass, who was a 4-star out of HS, played against better competition at Louisville, and is more of a dual threat guy. Time will tell.

    2021 Spring & Summer Transfer Thread

    Mahalak, Olsen & now Pass. The beat goes on. Maybe Ambrose should avoid FBS transfer QB’s all together. I realize all 3 of these guys had different circumstances that resulted in them not panning out at TU, but still the pattern of ballyhooed FBS QB’s who’ve fizzled here (actually, 2 of these 3 guys never even saw the field here) is disappointing

    2021-22 Schedule Thread

    In fairness, probably every CAA team has a home game against a DII or D III patsy. It is frustrating though to see some of those same schools also host big time D1 opponents when we can’t/won’t. I’m thinking back in the relatively short history of SECU arena and I guess the biggest program that we’ve hosted is Temple? You would have thought that for the inaugural game we could have done better than Navy. Of course, as with all things in life, money is an issue & it takes two to tango & the closest big time program to us, MD, ain’t going to play us in SECU. I wonder if we’ve ever tried to get Georgetown or WVA, Pitt, or Nova to play us here?🤔

    He’s the 2nd Retriever to follow Odom to Utah State, the other being Brandon Horvath. Also, Darnell Rogers & Kennedy are in the transfer portal. Their new coach has a total rebuild on his hands

    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.

    I like this addition. With Nolan, Holden, Rizzuto and (maybe) Holland, we don’t need Paar to be a big scorer. What we do need is a guy who can rotate with Charles Thompson, play D, grab some rebounds and sprinkle in some scoring. If verbalcommits is to be believed, Paar had offers coming out of HS from the likes of Nebraska, Xavier, UMass, St. Bonaventure, Hofstra, KansasState and Temple.
