    Sweet revenge - Shocks end first half ahead by 18, and win by 25.

      Temple is going to push us once again. Due to their 5 game winning streak and some national talk of possibly getting a birth to the NCAA's, Temple is fired up once again and a sweep of us would certainly help their cause. They've got some good athletes that will give us fits - I predict a close one, 82-74 win.

        I think this is a pretty good observation. Temple is not UConn. They've had some really good wins and are on the cusp. They will come to play. But this is why we joined the American, isn't it?

      Per Sully:

      Time for trivia:
      Q: Why is Temple's mascot an Owl?

      A: Temple was founded in 1884 as a night school "for ambitious young people." It adopted the nocturnal bird to honor those beginnings.

      And now I know.

          HCGM said he has four days to prepare, and we’ll be ready for Temple. He said in such a way that was verrry convincing.

              We absolutely, positively, must win this game to stay relevant in the national conversation. Losing to Cincinnati at their borrowed barn will not be the end of the world, if that happens, but another two game schneid is no bueno. They are playing for their tournament lives. This will not be an easy game. I think we win pulling away late.

              I like to mix Yiddish with my Spanish. I am multicultural in this way.

              Take a look at Temple's schedule and some of their midseason losses are real headscratchers when compared to some of their big wins. They are far and away a better squad than UCF or Memphis.

                    Wish I could be there to cheer the team on. We need the crowd pissed off and loud because of how the last Temple game went down, and we need to bury these guys. No prediction, but I want a thrashing.

                      I'm going to have extra tickets for tomorrow's game. Hopefully you know the drill by now. I don't know exactly yet but it could be 1,2 or 3 combos. Hate to see them unused. PM me if interested.

                              I'm afraid I don't have the pulleys and cables to make that happen. Can you believe that was just over 11 years ago?
