Morgan State lost a game that coach Todd Bozeman says the Bears shouldn't have on Monday. They came out flat against Delaware State (8-18, 4-9 MEAC), a team they took too lightly. “[My players] realize they let one slip away on Monday,” said Bozeman, whose team is 11-14 (9-4) with three regular-season games reamaining. “They realize that. That is probably an eye-opener for them. It may be good to get us refocused as we finish up the conference schedule.” For now, Bozeman warns that the conference tournament is still a long way off, and the Bears need to stay focused on getting better.

These days, his basketball office looks more like a closet than it does a shoebox, his gym more high school than it is NBA. There's a bit of gray in his hair now and a bit more age in his voice, which hasn't really softened a bit after a 10-year break. He's older now, too, of course. And even though Todd Bozeman can't stop talking about the future ... "I can't even put it into my words. I'm just so excited. Saturday can't get here fast enough for me." ... he also can't escape the past.

St. Louis -- James Flint was an assistant coach at Coppi State back then. Todd Bozeman was a volunteer assistant at Potomac High School in Prince George's County, still trying to get into college coaching.Their playing careers just had ended -- Flint's at St. Joseph's and Bozeman's at Rhode Island -- and these former Atlantic 10 rivals had become best friends. They shared their dreams of becoming Division I head coaches by the time they were 30."We talked about being part of the new wave of young, black assistants who would become head coaches.

So what exactly are we to make of this deli drama brewing at Morgan State? Week 1 of ham sandwich-gate has turned into a thinly cut controversy, packed between slices of absurdity and embarrassment, with extra anger and a side of speculation. And please, hold the sound judgment. I hate it as much as the next guy when someone screws up my menu order, but my annoyance doesn't usually result in assault and battery charges. And for the life of me, I can't figure out why Morgan State men's basketball coach Todd Bozeman would even put himself in such a situation - over a dinner order, mind you - and especially right now. As a colleague astutely asked: "Does he have a death wish?"

Farmville, Va. -- Morgan State men's basketball coach Todd Bozeman surrendered to authorities here yesterday afternoon, when an April 24 preliminary court date was set for two misdemeanor charges against him. Ten days after Bozeman got into an argument at a nearby restaurant, he appeared before a magistrate at the Prince Edward County Courthouse, where warrants for his arrest on Class 1 assault and battery and Class 3 curse and abuse were executed behind...

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Less than six weeks ago, Todd Bozeman was an obscure assistant coach at the University of California. At 29, he figured that he still had a couple of years and a couple of moves left before he would wind up with a head coaching job.Controversy put Bozeman in the uncomfortable spotlight of having to follow his former boss, Lou Campanelli, who was fired Feb. 8 as the Bears coach amid charges of verbally abusing his players. Success has put Bozeman -- and Cal -- into the NCAA tournament.

With the Ravens' run deep into the playoffs and Maryland men's basketball program surrounded by flashing lights and blaring alarms these past couple of months, I didn't get to see Morgan State play as much as I'd have liked. I was able to follow the Bears, though, thanks to the highly entertaining and mostly unpredictable blog maintained by coach Todd Bozeman. One minute he's lamenting a loss ("The guys came out with NO energy, NO focus, NO respect for their opponent and NO respect for each other.

This Todd Bozeman, now here's a guy who makes ever-hopeful Cubs fans look like pessimists, a guy who makes always upbeat Ernie Banks look like a venal misanthrope.Give this guy Bozeman a crate of lemons, and he won't screw up his face in distaste. He'll take them and make a million selling lemonade. Put him down in the middle of a hurricane, he'll start pointing out the silver lining in the clouds. Sock him in with the season's worst snowstorm, he'll shovel himself out and start building castles toward the sky.That, in effect, is just what he was asked to do last Feb. 8, which is the day California fired Lou Campanelli and named Bozeman his successor.

The Morgan State men's basketball team's bid for a 3-0 start in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference will unfold Saturday, but it won't be easy. Norfolk State, which will host the Bears (4-10 overall and 2-0 in the league), is 10-7 overall, but sits atop the conference with a perfect 4-0 record. Saturday's contest pits two of the MEAC's four undefeated teams (Hampton and Savannah State at 3-0 each are the other two) against each other, but Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said every league game is crucial.

The Morgan State men's basketball team is off to a 2-0 start in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference for the first time since the 2010-11 season, courtesy of Saturday's 73-56 rout of South Carolina State. “[The wins] all are important, particularly in the conference,” Bears coach Todd Bozeman said Thursday morning. “It's important to get off to a good start. We hadn't won our first two conference games in probably a couple years. So this was good. It was good for us to get back on the winning track, and it's important for us to stay focused and keep getting better.

The 2013-14 season for the Morgan State men's basketball team opened with six consecutive losses, grew more encouraging with a 3-1 stretch, but now the Bears are mired in a three-game losing skid. The Bears' 3-10 record might be a source of concern for others, but don't lump in coach Todd Bozeman with that group. “You can't just judge it by the numbers,” Boseman said Monday afternoon. “It is what it is. I'm not trying to [tiptoe] around that. I'd say we're definitely getting better, and we are progressing in a way that we need to progress to get ready for the conference.

Of all the college basketball games Todd Bozeman has coached in over the past 20 years, two have given him the most recognition. The first came in St. Louis during the 1993 NCAA tournament, when a Jason Kidd-led California team coached by a 29-year-old Bozeman, who replaced Lou Campanelli after he was fired mid-season, beat two-time defending champion Duke in the Sweet 16. "My guys had always said they wanted to play Duke," Bozeman recalled earlier...

There's not a hint of hyperbole in Todd Bozeman 's voice when he calls the 2011-12 season “the toughest year I've ever had as a coach.” In his sixth year at Morgan State, Bozeman's Bears stumbled through a 9-19 season, and the veteran coach was placed on paid administrative leave after he was accused of hitting senior guard Larry Bastfield during a game at South Carolina State.

Todd Bozeman's demeanor rarely changed Saturday at Hill Field House. From the moment he took his seat on the Morgan State bench until he left following a 62-61 loss to North Carolina A&T, the 48-year old coach was the picture of serenity. Even while his team was building, and then blowing, a 13-point first-half lead. Even as his Bears were committing 19 turnovers and losing yet another close game in a season filled with them. Even as his own son, freshman point guard Blake Bozeman, missed what could have been the game-winning shot.

When Morgan State introduces Todd Bozeman as its new men's basketball coach this morning, there will be people around the country who will assume that a couple of NCAA investigators will be present, disguised as office plants. Nothing less should be expected for one of the most seriously penalized coaches in recent collegiate history and the school brave enough to hire him. That won't be the case, as Bozeman himself will remind you. For one thing, once his punishment for paying one of his players at California ended last June, he was free to pursue coaching jobs without having his name run past the NCAA.

When Todd Bozeman turned water into proverbial wine and delivered Morgan State to the NCAA men's basketball tournament last week, it ended one of the longest, most withering droughts in history. Not only had the Bears not reached the tournament since joining Division I in 1983, but they had also enjoyed just one winning season over the next 23 years before Bozeman arrived as coach in 2006. On Sunday, an hour after Morgan received the 15th seed in the South Region - and a date tonight with No. 2 seed Oklahoma in Kansas City, Mo. - Bozeman paid homage to the school's long-suffering basketball fans.

The drama surrounding the Morgan State men's basketball team was on the court Saturday at Hill Field House. A week filled with closed-door meetings and private discussions on the suspension of Bears coach Todd Bozeman ended with Morgan State blowing a 17-point lead in the final 81/2 minutes of regulation against Norfolk State, then going two overtimes before succumbing to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference front-runner, 90-89. Senior forward Aric Brooks (St. Frances) made a pair of free throws with 26.7seconds left in regulation to force the first overtime, and three straight free throws with 1.4 seconds left in that period to send it to a second.
