Mascot Memoirs: the Temple Owls

Birds are among the most-used team nicknames in sports. Professional franchises and colleges alike have adopted cardinals, eagles, hawks and falcons, to name a few, as mascots. Rather than follow the flock, Temple University opted for a bit more unique aviary representative–the owl. What is an “Owl?” According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary, owls are “chiefly...

Temple Owls: Behind the Music

When I first started writing for this website, our managing editor, Tyler Waddell, told me that he wanted the content of the website to be “different.” I probably took that too literally. I may not have used the best grammar or found the most intriguing stats. And yeah, maybe I was wrong here and there about Temple’s abilities. Before the season, I said the Owls’ weakest...

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...

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 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...

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...

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...
