Towson Reprimanded By CAA For Not Adjusting To The Snow

Many of you probably had unbelievably rough commutes home from D.C. because of the way this city is woefully unprepared for anything when it snows like it did last night. The Towson men's basketball team did the smart thing before its game against George Mason and just didn't bother even traveling to get there. What was the effect of that decision, besides the game being postponed to this afternoon?

Well, it earned them a public scolding from CAA commissioner Tom Yeager. Yeager called out Towson for not adjusting their travel schedule to prepare for the elements. Via Samuel Chamberlain of TBD:

"While everyone understands travel complications with winter storms, there is no evidence that any consideration was made by Towson to adjust their normal travel plans to account for the anticipated problems."

In other words, they are being blamed for doing exactly what everyone in the D.C. area did yesterday. All of us rightfully received sympathy. Towson, on the other hand, was rebuked. This is big-time college athletics, so I guess they should have manned up, according to Yeager. Life isn't fair sometimes.

This does, however, mean that Towson has something in common with the D.C. government. Both have no idea how to deal with the snow.
