Temple is Highest Ranked AAC Team in ESPN’s 2015 Preseason FPI Rankings

Temple split its wins and losses in 2014, wasn’t invited to a bowl, and lost five of its last seven games to end the season. Looks like a recipe for a middle-of-the-pack finish in the conference preseason rankings. Well computers have a different way of ranking teams. They neither use emotions, biases, or even the eye test; just cold-hard number crunching. ESPN’s computers are...

How Temple’s 2015 Recruiting Class Fits In

At this point, it’s a breath of fresh air to say the Temple Owls football program is “up and coming.” It means we truly believe this program is headed in the right direction. But it also means our expectations for the future are real. Head coach Matt Rhule inherited a team that went 2-10 in 2013 behind awful defense (notably horrible pass defense). A year later, he improved...

Temple Owls 75 Cincinnati Bearcats 59

Well, that sucked. It had been a while since the Bearcats walked into an ass kicking like the one they got from the Temple Owls last night. The Memphis game seems comparable, minus the part Cincinnati had that at a 1 point game before failing to score for years. The VCU game is almost as comparable, but that was much more of a blowout. Considering that game was marred by the Mick...

Finding Temple a Rival

Last week, I looked at the reasons why the Temple Owls’ rivals are not Penn State and Villanova, as they are semi-claimed to be. Simply put, it isn’t a football rivalry if you admit that your so-called rival is consistently better at football than you. Penn State, despite what’s happened recently, has a program that is way too storied for Temple to even pretend to compare....

AAC Adding More Bowls; Temple Celebrates

The American Athletic Conference will, at least, have seven bowl tie-ins for the 2015 football season, but may bolster the lineup even more, according to AAC Commissioner Mike Aresco. Aresco told the Orlando Sentinel last Friday that he is gauging the landscape to see if creating more bowl opportunities for the conference is possible, but he was unable to go into specific details...

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 has a rough night on the road against Cincinnati

On a night without Senior Guard Will Cummings, the Temple Owls traveled to Cincinnati to take on the Bearcats. Coming into the game, the Owls held a 12-6 record (3-2 AAC), while the Cincinnati Bearcats held an 11-5 record (2-2 AAC).

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Temple Owls Preview

The Bearcats get another tough conference coming down the pike tomorrow night. The slate from mid-December to mid-January was tough and a potential season definer. Cincinnati has gone 3-4 against Nebraska, San Diego State, VCU, NC State, SMU, UConn and Memphis. Since starting 6-1, Cincinnati has gone 5-4. There is a chance we didn’t see as being a big one coming up tomorrow. Temple...

Offseason To-Do List: Temple Owls

Temple’s 6-6 season could be interpreted in multiple ways. Ultimately, the Owls moved in the right direction.The season had its ups—the Owls tripled their win total, had an outstanding defense, and are still young—and of course, its downs—PJ Walker, the team’s most exciting player going into the season, took a step back; the offense was really bad; and they missed a bowl...

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...
