Good morning Tiger Nation and welcome to the Morning Roar.


Let’s Unleash the Roar

Thursday means one thing every week, Tiger Talk. This week the show will be in-studio and not at Bill Bateman's in Towson. But you can still listen to Spiro Morekas and Damon Lewis as they will be joined by @Towson_WBB head coach Joe Mathews in the first half of the show. Then as always, @Towson_FB head coach Rob Ambrose in the second half of the show.


After a pretty successful fall season, @Towson_WGOLF has announced their spring semester schedule. Even though it’s called the “spring season” it begins for the Tigers February 17-18. Luckily for them that first weekend will be in Ormond Beach, Fla.


The Towson Sports Network had many head coaches check in yesterday and you can see all the interviews right here on TowsonTigers.com. Those interviews included Women’s TennisDoug Neagle, Swimming and Diving’s Pat Mead, and GymnasticsVicki Chliszczyk.


In the latest, A View From Kent Road, Milton Kent talks with @Towson_MBB’s Kris Walden about how he is using the memory of last season as motivation for this year.


Countdown to New Hampshire

Two days separate us from not only an important game for the Tigers and Wildcats, but also for the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) as a whole.


It is messy to say the least at the top of the CAA, but CAAfootballblog.com has broken down the different scenarios to see who will win the conference and get the automatic bid into the FCS Playoffs—it isn’t exactly in the Tigers' favor because of the system the conference is using.


Yesterday we took a look at the New Hampshire offense; today let’s dive into the defense.


It is safe to say that the Wildcats are much better on offense than defense. Their total defense ranks ninth in the conference giving up 410.5 yards per game. As a team on offense the Tigers average 419.1 yards. The Wildcats as a team are giving up 27.6 points per game and the Tigers average 28.7 points per game.


On the ground UNH is surrendering 139.1 yards per game which is good enough for fourth in the CAA. When it comes to ariel attacks, New Hampshire is dead last in the CAA giving up 271.4 yards per game.


Needless to say this is going to be a good game as both teams are among the best in the CAA and both have a good chance at winning the Colonial, which is never an easy feat.


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