There's no escaping that Saturday's 62-7 loss to Colonial Athletic Association foe James Madison was Towson's worst in program history. But the 55-point margin of defeat was the last thing on coach Rob Ambrose's mind when he spoke Monday afternoon during his weekly conference call arranged by the league. “I'm sure there's a little bit or a concern, but we've got bigger issues than what the score of the game was,” he said. “We need to overcome our injury level and overcome our youth and a little bit of finishing the game.

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

Two days after Towson allowed visiting Maine to convert three fourth downs and score the game-winning touchdown in the final minute of a 27-24 loss Saturday night, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose admitted that the pain continues to linger. Faced with a decision of whether to massage or discipline Towson (2-3 overall, 0-1 Colonial Athletic Association), Ambrose said he remembers to take a page from late Hall of Fame and Orioles manager Earl Weaver's playbook. “One of the best lessons I ever learned was to listen to Earl Weaver talk about his teams -- his very, very successful teams and all of the different personalities,” Ambrose said Monday afternoon during his weekly conference call arranged by the CAA. “He would tell you that once you lose - especially the ones that hurt - you've got to love them up. You've got to remind them who they can be. And when you win, that's the time when you've really got to step on them and say, 'This is what we're not doing.' It's a way to keep them motivated and focused on the next game.

Towson's 54-0 loss to West Virginia on Saturday night may have been stunning to Tigers fans, but it brought on a different feeling from coach Rob Ambrose. Ambrose, who had not been shut out since Nov. 6, 2010 when Delaware beat Towson, 48-0, was critical of his team's effort against the Mountaineers, saying, “We cleared up some of the fog of the fakers. We found out the guys who talk the talk that don't walk the walk. They won't see the field. We will play the guys that love football and love each other.” During his weekly conference call organized by the Colonial Athletic Association, Ambrose elaborated on that comment.
