Temple football: Gardner sets sights on TU

Temple’s backfield will lost a big piece of the offense when the 2014 season came to end. Running back Kenny Harper’s time up is up as an Owl and now the torch is going to get handed off to someone else. The most likely candidate to get the position would be Thomas Jahad, who will be going into his junior year next year. But the Owls made a splash already with recruiting when...

Temple’s Final Report Card

I’m still trying to wrap my head around this season. Was it a success or a failure? You could certainly make the case for both. In one year, Temple tripled its win total from 2013 and became bowl eligible. They surprised many people and started 4-1 but they couldn’t build off the momentum of a hot start and ran out of gas by the middle of the season. They peaked early. Real early...

Temple Turns a Blowout Loss Into A 4 Game Winning Streak

Who would have guess that getting blown at Villanova might just have been the best thing to happen to the Temple basketball team this season.  Or maybe it was the ride down the Broad Street Line to get to the Wells Fargo Center to destroy Kansas.  Coming off a disappointing season a year ago and then losses to the Wildcats and the St. Joe’s Hawks in Big 5 play, one had to wonder...
