    Basically because they weren't excited when they had a national championship within their grasp, why would you expect them to be excited when they are just meh and playing a just meh game?

    To be honest, I think the game will mean very little in Baltimore, even though I personally think it is a great thing that Towson and Morgan State are playing each other. Look at when the Baltimore area DI schools (specifically Towson, Morgan State, Coppin State, Loyola, and UMBC) have tried to organize intra-Baltimore college basketball doubleheaders emphasizing and showcasing Baltimore college basketball - few people cared. Baltimore area sports fans are primarily focused on the Ravens, Orioles, and University of Maryland to care about anything else.

    I hope you're right. Having local interest in this rivalry could make it a great thing. What's with the "for greater Baltimore" thing? Towson is the seat of Baltimore County and the zip code abuts the city line. What is it, like a mile from the stadium to the city line? All I know is in high school we marched it as part of a parade to reopen that shopping center down there. We didn't even take a bus back, we just walked back up York Rd along the sidewalk.

    The local lacrosse rivalries between Hopkins, Loyola, and Towson have done well, but their campuses are so close they almost touch (JHU and Loyola technically do), but yeah FCS football isn't a huge draw. I'd love to see it get there though. Of course it would help if Loyola would start up a program (hint, hint, hint)

    I'll be at the game (of course), but PAllen has it right. Lacrosse is the big sport at Towson, especially with the recent success for the Tigers making the Final Four this year. There isn't a huge fan base for Towson's football team, and there never hasn't really been to be honest.

    Morgan State fans only get excited for Howard, Homecoming and occasionally Hampton. A few years ago they actually had a decent team but drew no local interest.
