CAA announces five TV games for Towson in 2014

Posted on 22 July 2014 by WNST Staff

RICHMOND, Va. (July 22, 2014) – CAA Football announced on Tuesday a schedule of 24 games that will be televised by conference broadcast partners NBC Sports Network, NBC Sports Regional Networks and American Sports Network in 2014.

2014 will mark the CAA’s third year of a five-year broadcast agreement with NBC Sports Network. The Emmy Award-winning network is the 24/7 cable television home for NBC Sports, and is available in more than 85 million households. In addition, NBC Sports Live Extra – NBC Sports Group’s live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices and tablets – will stream each of the four CAA Football games on NBCSN.

NBC Sports Regional Networks – which includes Comcast SportsNet – consists of 11 regional networks that deliver more than 2,400 live sporting events annually to more than 43 million homes. NBC Sports Regional Networks will carry a total of 11 CAA Football contests in 2014.

Additionally, nine CAA Football games will be broadcast on the American Sports Network, the conference’s newest television partner. ASN is a collegiate sports initiative of the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which has affiliates that reach approximately 38.9-percent of U.S. households.

Specific Comcast SportsNet and American Sports Network clearances will be announced each week throughout the season.

In addition to the linear broadcasts, every Comcast SportsNet and American Sports Network game in the CAA Football package will be simulcast digitally to out-of-market areas for free on CAA.tv. Digital broadcasts on CAA.tv will be blacked out in areas where the telecast is available via local cable providers.

CAA Football’s 2014 television package kicks off on Sept. 13 with a non-conference matchup of Lehigh at New Hampshire on ASN. The next week, Sept. 20, will feature a slate of three televised games with a CSN double-header of James Madison at Villanova and New Hampshire at Richmond, along with Charlotte at Elon on ASN.

CSN will broadcast another CAA Football double-header on Sept. 27 with Delaware at James Madison, followed by Maine at 2013 national runner-up Towson. The next week, CSN will carry the matchup between Stony Brook and Towson.

The national NBC Sports Network package gets underway on Oct. 11 with William & Mary at New Hampshire. That Saturday will feature two other televised games, with Towson at James Madison on CSN and Maine at Stony Brook on ASN.

Over the next four weeks, CSN will carry matchups of Towson at Delaware, Delaware at William & Mary, Villanova at Richmond, and Elon at William & Mary. In the same stretch, ASN will broadcast Rhode Island at Richmond, Maine at Rhode Island, William & Mary at James Madison, and Towson at Villanova.

The NBCSN schedule resumes on Nov. 15 with James Madison at Richmond, in addition to William & Mary at Towson on CSN and UAlbany at Villanova on ASN.

The regular-season’s final Saturday, Nov. 22, will feature a NBCSN double-header of New Hampshire at Maine followed by Richmond at William & Mary. The ASN slate will also conclude that week with Elon traveling to James Madison.

I would pay the same price of admission to see Willie Nelson OR Alison Krauss & Union Station.

This is perhaps the most significant song/video I’ve EVER HEARD/SEEN.

John Prine is better at making songs than Manny Machado is at throwing baseball bats.

J. Roddy is amazing. You should probably already know that.

What A Difference Two Years And An Arena Can Make

Posted on 19 February 2014 by Robert Canady

Two years ago during the 2011-12 season, I covered many of Towson’s basketball games, meaning I witnessed  a loss almost every night.   I had a courtside view along with one other faithful reporter Mat Schlissel of TowsonTigers.com.  Many nights it was just the two of us who watched  from press row at a cold and lifeless Towson Center, as a team with only four scholarship players finished 1-31.  Also some nights we weren’t outnumbered by too many fans in the stands either.  A fact that isn’t lost on Head Coach Pat Skerry,  saying, “Two years ago we weren’t giving away seats, we were giving away sections.”

The Tigers are a commanding 13-1 in their new home SECU Arena

Fast forward two years, to this past Monday night.  Mat and I  still had seats next to each other.  However, this time those seats were in the beautiful new SECU Arena.  And, we had been bumped from our courtside seats in favor of the national television crew from NBCSports Network.   Also this time we were only two of 29 media members covering the game.

Still more differences, this time a crowd of over 4000 packed the new home of the Tigers with an energy that I have not witnessed in three seasons covering the team.  Most importantly among those 4,000 fans were the Towson students.   In those games at the Towson Center many nights, there was hardly what you could call a student section.   For most of this year, the students have been out in force, filling both sections under each basket, along with the energy generating Towson pep band.   Season ticket holders, alumni and just plain fans often take their cue from the student section.  If the students are into it, they naturally join along.

The excitement was in large part due to the opponent.  The University of Delaware came in with an unblemished 11-0 record in Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) play.  The Blue Hens occupied the first place spot that Towson had been picked for in the preseason poll.  In the first matchup of the season in Newark last month, Delaware had a similar type crowd on hand and beat the Tigers 83-76 taking control of the 1st place in the league.

To see where the Towson program has come In less than two years is remarkable.  It began with the arrival of  Skerry in the spring of 2011.  He found himself with a shorthanded team during his first season, yet it didn’t affect his approach to each game.   The Tigers played hard, they just didn’t have the talent.  Well they had talent, but it was sitting on the bench in the form of transfers Jerrelle Benimon and Mike Burwell.

When Benimon and Burwell along with JUCO transfer Rafriel Guthrie became eligible to play last year, the Tigers turned in the well documented record breaking season in which they set an NCAA record for biggest turnaround by finishing 18-13.  However, the joy of that success was tempered a bit as the Tigers knew going into the season they would not be eligible for any post-season play, due to APR issues prior to Skerry’s arrival.

This year came with many expectations, Benimon was voted the pre-season Player of the Year in the conference, and as mentioned the Tigers were voted the pre-season favorite to win the league.  They had gone from being the hunter to the hunted, and as Skerry has referenced a few times this year, they wouldn’t be able to sneak up on anyone this season.

So after 11 conference games the scene was set for Monday night, a win by Delaware would have clinched the CAA title for them and assured them not only of the No. 1 seed when the tournament starts in Baltimore in just over two weeks, but also assured them of a NIT bid should they fail to win the conference tournament.

With the win the Tigers still have an outside shot at winning the regular season title, should Delaware lose at  least two of its remaining four games.   While the regular season title may still be a long shot for Towson, the win did a couple of things that should bring even more excitement to the tournament.

Most importantly it can be argued, the Tigers regained some of their swagger in the league.  Two losses to the Blue Hens might have taken some of the anticipation out of the tournament.  The Tigers didn’t just win, they dominated Delaware in all phases of the game, and showed the form that garnered them the pre-season ranking.

Should the Tigers and Blue Hens meet in the tournament, it will most likely come in the final, as it stands now they will go in as the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds.    So there would be the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament on the line.  With the game being played in Baltimore at First Mariner Arena, Towson should be able to have the largest fan support of the nine teams.   However, the Delaware fan base travels very well, and will no doubt have several bus loads of students and fans make the just over one hour drive from Newark.

Both teams have valid player of the year candidates, Towson with Benimon and  Delaware with its all time leading scorer Devon Saddler.  The two schools are a natural rival.   In addition to being the closest in proximity of any CAA schools, the two have very successful football programs and have had some classic matchups on the football field.

Both teams have some work to do the final ten days of the regular season to avoid any slip-ups and both coaches will tell you the next game is the only one they are worried about.   The next game for Towson is Thursday night in Boston as they face Northeastern.   Skerry showed he is not looking past this game, “I told the team (in the locker room after the Delaware game) I like to leave them with little pleasantries.  But nobody in this room has beaten Northeastern, so we’ve got a major game there Thursday.”

Towson stays on the road after the Northeastern game to play at Hofstra on Saturday.  They return home only long enough to do laundry attend a class or two and head to James Madison for the penultimate game on Wednesday the 25th.

The regular season will close out against William and Mary on Saturday March 1st at SECU, and I know this, Mat and I will be sitting side by side, again in the upper concourse to make room for another TV crew, a fact that neither of us mind as we think back to those cold nights in an empty Towson Center, and realize how far this program and team has come.

Delta Rae is freaking wonderful. Here’s a night I saw them at Rams Head Live and FELL IN STINKING LOVE.

You might not be familiar with Lake Street Dive. But perhaps you’ve seen this wonderful video.

I saw Sister Sparrow in Brooklyn during Super Bowl week. They played Led Zeppelin IV in its’ entirety. I’m certainly glad they did.

The Wild Feathers are the most important on this or any list.

Saints of Valory ain’t too bad either.

Lauryn Hill is amazing. But may it be known: I still have not forgiven her mother’s character from Sister Act 2.

I dig John Butler Trio. I’d kinda like to claim them for America if that’s still an option.
