Tigers left out in the cold in playoff selection
Despite winning the title of co-Colonial Athletic Association champions, the Tigers were left out of the playoffs by the selection committee.
As the team sat in the locker room awaiting the Division 1AA playoff bracket, Towson was not part of the 20-team playoff. Although the Tigers were left off, New Hampshire and Villanova, who claimed the at-large bid for the CAA, were put in, although Towson defeated New Hampshire 64-35 this weekend at New Hampshire.
“The goal is for the best 20 teams to play for the national title,” Head Coach Rob Ambrose said. “I can’t speak for [the selection committee] but I can say I’m disappointed by them. These young men earned it.”
