Good morning Tiger Nation and welcome to the Wednesday edition of the Morning Roar.

On Friday, Sept. 21 the Towson Athletics Hall of Fame will be adding four more names to its immortal list. Three of the new honorees come from the class of 2001 -- Lisa Pollock (@Towson_SB), Tina Steck (@Towson_WSOC) and Andrew Hollingsworth (@Towson_FB). The fourth member is Todd Hicks (@Towson_MSOC) of the class of 1997.  

In the latest installment of the AD’s Corner, Towson Athletic Director Mike Waddell (@TowsonTigerAD) reflects on the last two years (well 23 months, but who's counting) of being athletic director. If you have any questions about Towson athletics, Waddell wants you to tweet them to him or send them on Facebook. He will answer your questions in the next AD’s Corner.

Let’s Unleash the Roar

At this point we all know what happened to @Towson_FB at Kent State, and frankly are tired of re-living it. But in the latest installment of From the Broadcast Booth, Spiro Morekas takes you on a behind-the-scenes look of what it is like to travel with the football team. It was my first time traveling with the team and Spiro does a great job of painting the picture for those of you that were not there with us.

Speaking of @Towson_FB, despite the 0-1 record, the Tigers are still ranked 13th in the latest Sports Network Weekly Poll. They are one of seven teams to be ranked despite dropping season openers.

Later today, @Towson_MSOC will be looking for their second win in three games when the squad takes on Howard University at the Tiger Soccer Complex at 4 p.m. So if you are in the Towson area today, be sure to come by and check out all the exciting action while cheering on the Tigers!

Countdown to William and Mary

The count is down to 10 days.

Before William and Mary comes to Towson, they will play in their home opener against Lafayette. Under Head Coach Jimmye Laycock, the Tribe are 23-9 in home openers and have won by an average margin of 23 points. I wouldn’t want to be Lafayette because the numbers are stacked against them. However, there is a reason why we play sports on the field -- because many times, numbers mean nothing.

If you want to read more on the Tribe’s opponent this week, you can get to know the Lafayette Leopards here.

Thanks for reading another edition of the Morning Roar and be sure to check back at the same time tomorrow for more. In the meantime, be sure to follow me on twitter @ZachMaskavich.
