Marah Strickland didn't have any idea she was sick. She played two years at St. John's Catholic Prep in Frederick, two years at Towson Catholic, two seasons at Maryland and one season at South Carolina, and it's possible she was symptomatic the entire time. She just didn't know. A little more than two years ago, she finally found out. Doctors diagnosed Strickland with hypothyroidism before the 2011-12 season, and they told her it was something she might have had for a long time.

Towson University has been conducting discussions with the Atlantic 10 Conference about the possibility of joining the league in football. "It may happen, but there has not been any offer of admission extended to us," said Towson athletic director Wayne Edwards. "Potentially, at some future point, it is likely we could get it done." Towson competes in the Patriot League and will enter the second year of a three-year contract this fall. But four fellow members of the Colonial Athletic Association's basketball conference - Hofstra, Delaware, William and Mary and James Madison - play football in the Atlantic 10, making the switch attractive.

Towson football was formally welcomed into the Atlantic 10 Conference on what athletic director Wayne Edwards labeled "one of the most exciting days in the history of Towson athletics." Linda Bruno, commissioner of the league, said the Tigers were the top choice from among five or six schools that inquired about membership because of its geographic fit and commitment to football. Effective in 2004, the switch from the Patriot League will require approximately $600,000 in additional funding for football scholarships, according to Edwards.

Towson University will announce today that it has been accepted as the 12th football-playing member of the Atlantic 10 Conference. "It's been a long process, but it will be worth the wait," football coach Gordy Combs said yesterday. "This is a very competitive league from top to bottom, and we'll be happy to be a part of it." The Atlantic 10 is considered the premier Division I-AA football conference in the East. Three members, William and Mary, Hofstra and Maine, made the NCAA playoffs from the league last season, and Massachusetts won the national title in 1998.

RICHMOND, Va. - It may have been Towson University's first meeting with Richmond, but it still was a somewhat familiar foe that dealt the Tigers their sixth Atlantic 10 loss of the season yesterday. Two years ago, a Dave Clawson-coached Fordham team eliminated Towson from the Patriot League title race on a rainy afternoon in the Bronx, and the Rams went on to take the crown that season. This time, Clawson's Spiders denied the Tigers their first conference win with a 24-0 victory before 4,427 at Richmond Stadium.

WASHINGTON -- George Washington coach Karl Hobbs could not recall it happening. Junior guard Danilo Pinnock, however, does have a memory of an opponent playing harder than the Colonials. "The last time I can say that happened was my freshman year, in the NIT, against Virginia," Pinnock said. "That's the last time I can honestly say we didn't play hard. We addressed that. We don't play like that anymore." GW responded in 2004-05 with its first Atlantic 10 Conference tournament title, a precursor to what has been the best season in Colonials' history.

Since Towson's four-point loss to Delaware last season - its closest conference game all year - the Tigers' Atlantic 10 troubles have been plentiful. But last night Towson may have silenced the doubters for good. Nick Williams' 3-yard touchdown run with 38 seconds left, followed by Eric Clark's interception on Delaware's final drive, gave Towson a 35-31 victory before a record-setting homecoming crowd of 10,078 at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The win marks Towson's first in the conference since joining the Atlantic 10 last season, and it came against a team two seasons removed from a national championship.

The Towson University Tigers say they are stronger, quicker, deeper and better than they were a year ago. But in the Division I-AA world of Atlantic 10 Conference football, where Towson is trying to find its way as a second-year member of a top-notch league, improvements on paper don't amount to much. A year after a rough introduction to the Atlantic 10, a year in which the Tigers went 3-8, were the only winless team in conference play and dropped five of their eight league games by an average of 29 points, Towson sees itself making a mark this fall.

The controversial and colorful career of John Chaney has turned an ugly hue, as Temple has suspended its veteran coach for the remainder of the regular season over his use of an enforcer in a heated game against an Atlantic 10 Conference rival. Chaney initially gave himself a one-game suspension for his poor judgment in a loss to Saint Joseph's, but yesterday the Temple administration added two games to that punishment. Chaney can return for the conference tournament, March 9-12 in Cincinnati, but Saint Joe's senior John Bryant will not. Bryant suffered a broken right arm in a seven-point win at Temple on Tuesday, when Chaney inserted Nehemiah Ingram, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound player whom he described as a "goon."
