Luckily for Notre Dame fans, the Irish have their act together right now against the Temple Owls, taking a 21-6 lead into halftime. The same can’t be said for whoever was supposed to spell check the cups sold at Notre Dame Stadium, which apparently reference the program as the “Figthing Irish”. Darren Rovell was the first to call attention to the mishap. It’s spellcheck...

Temple hoping Rhule is good as Golden

It's not the return of Al Golden, but Temple is hoping bringing back Matt Rhule is the next best thing - if not even better. The former Temple assistant under Golden was hired as Temple's latest head coach in December, following Steve Addazio's departure for Boston College. Rhule, who spent five seasons under Golden and one under Addazio, is the Owls' third head...

Robinsons' Neighborhood

Temple coach Matt Rhule has talked about finding a few pass rushers to pressure the quarterback the way the Owls did when Adrian Robinson was on the team two years ago. Ironically, one of the players who can get after the quarterback is freshman Averee Robinson – Adrian’s younger brother.

Reilly impressive in Temple spring game

On his very first play from scrimmage, Connor Reilly rolled to his left, planted his feet and fired a deep pass across his body to the other side of the field. If there were any questions as to why Reilly had ascended to the No. 1 spot on Temple's depth chart at quarterback this spring, they were quickly answered when the ball dropped deftly into the arms of running back Kenneth...

Khalif Wyatt and Temple gave the 1-seed Indiana Hoosiers quite a scare. The Owls led for most of the way, but Indiana showed its toughness and resiliency, battling back in the game’s final minutes. With 44 seconds to play, Temple trailed by one and needed one defensive stop to get a chance to win the game in regulation. Indiana proceeded to milk the shot clock for as long as it...

Temple’s Khalif Wyatt: Oladipo ‘not the first good defender’

DAYTON, Ohio — In a lot of ways, Temple’s Khalif Wyatt and Indiana’s Victor Oladipo are spitting images of one another. Both were under recruited and overlooked by most of the country when they were in high school, and both have blossomed into two of the best players in college basketball. Wyatt, the player of the year in the stacked Atlantic 10 Conference, was rated as just...

Wyatt, Temple dispatch NC State

Khalif Wyatt grabbed his left thumb -- the one alarmingly wrapped in black support tape -- pulled it toward his stomach and grimaced. His non-shooting hand dangled uselessly as he set up behind the free-throw line. He carefully placed it on the bottom of the ball, cautiously dribbled a couple times, then put both hands on it and let it fly. Painful, but perfect. Then, he did it...
