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 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).

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 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...

Temple football: Bowl Eligible Owls

What a Bowl Game Would Mean for the Temple Owls

There is no doubt that the Temple Owls took a few steps forward this season after last year’s 10-loss leap backwards. The first few steps were smooth and swift: a win at Vanderbilt (the SEC’s finest, I tell ya!), finding their defense, freshmen excelling immediately, and growing confidence in head coach Matt Rhule. But then […] The post What a Bowl Game Would Mean for the Temple...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Temple Owls Preview

On Saturday afternoon while the nation is enjoying rivalry week, we have to endure this ****. I know Temple isn’t awful, but man it is hard to care about this game even a little bit.

Committee key for Cummings, Owls

Send to Kindle Credit: Temple Athletics I’ve got a lot of respect for Temple head coach, Fran Dunphy — I’m one of many.  In fact, the college-coaching tree I’ve been associated with throughout my time in basketball grew out of the many opportunities, tutelage, and support Coach Dunphy facilitated.  And, when you stop and really think about it, there aren’t too many...

2014 Temple Owls men’s basketball preview

Last season, the absence of Kahliff Wyatt proved to be to much for a young owls squad that only featured five upperclassmen. All looked to be well...

For the Temple Owls 2014 roster, the running back position is one that does not lack depth. The Owls have eight running backs listed on their roster to begin the 2014 season. Who should people look for carrying the ball for Temple when the season is the real question. Last year for Temple, Kenny Harper and Zaire Williams were the main backs for Matt Rhule and his offense.
