Temple Hate Week?


I know its "only" Temple, but I would like to report from enemy territory that their fan base is abuzz with the possibility of beating the Lions this weekend.  A co-worker of mine, a Temple law student, turned me on to a temple football blog recently and I have checked it out from time to time.  The two most recent articles are about the game this Saturday and they are an interesting window into the mind of the Temple fan on how they feel they might fare this coming weekend.  You can check out the blog here.

For those of you who dont want to head over there, to summarize the Owl faithful have a startling suspicion that based on their coaching staff, their skill players and the fact that its in Philly, the stars have aligned for a Temple win.  To quote:

I dont think Penn State can stop Bernard Pierce for Four Quarters.  If Bernard Pierce plays Four Quarters Penn State is going down.

 

Now before you think I am posting this because I think they may be correct or I am worried about Temple, etc., you must be fully aware that I expect a win for Penn State and I think it may not be close.  I only bring you this article cause I thought it would be interesting to share with the rest of you the confidence that the Temple fanbase is feeling this weekend.  I am going to the game Saturday, and for those of you who will be there  as well, this new found confidence should lead to an interesting gameday atmosphere and possibly a little fire under this "rivalry" for the fans.
