Agree 1000%. Temple offense is offensive. Hard to comprehend but true, the Temple offense was better, significantly better, under Patenaude. This year Temple ranks 9th in the conference in scoring offense and 10th in total offense.
One QB is a statue-can’t move turnover machine, and the other does not throw well enough to start. Get a new OC, or find a true RPO QB.
There is something wrong with Wright.
Memphis players are still having nightmares.
Temple Defensive players are true heroes.
From what I’ve seen so far don’t think the other QB is a good enough runner for an RPO style offense either. Maybe Beatty is the guy going forward but given that more of the talent on this offense is still geared for a power style offense I think your point about a new OC might be the best way to fix this offense
All you Nancies can quit your bitching .
From Yahoo Sports:
Boston College may have blown its best chance to get to a bowl game. The Eagles hosted Florida State, a team that just fired its head coach, on Saturday but ended up losing 38-31. BC managed to tie the game at 24-24 with 2:33 to play, but allowed touchdowns of 60 and 66 yards in a 45-second span. First, it was a 60-yard TD pass from James Blackman to D.J. Matthews. And after a Dennis Grosel interception, FSU’s Jordan Travis put the nail in the coffin with a 66-yard rushing score. BC now has to win one of its two road games — No. 15 Notre Dame and Pitt — to reach win No. 6.
Damn. I was hoping to play them in the Military Bowl if we can’t sneak in against Baylor in a NY6 one.
TU doesn’t want Baylor. I’ve watched all of their games this season and man to man, most of their players are better than TU’s players. Most importantly, their QB is a winner and just makes things happen. He can run and throw every pass be it long, short, a lob, or a fast ball. If TU plays them it’s Duke all over again. There is little if any chance for TU to play them anyway, given conference bowl tie-ins.
I get the heat on Carey but I still will give him the benefit of the doubt. Russo can throw the ball, but all too frequently, he shows poor judgment. The interception he threw Thursday was inexcusable because he had the receiver wide open going to the corner and just had to lead him. Instead he tried to force the ball on a line. I also understand the benefits of rolling out a qb. Nevertheless, maybe Carey’s considered it and tried it at practice and it’s been a disaster. Next, The second team qb can run but his passing ability is very limited. Until Carey can recruit his own classes and players, his options are limited. Just remember that the average of Collins’ two recruiting classes was 97. Frankly, considering that this is Carey’s first year, he’s doing better than every coach TU ever had except for Hardin who was 7-3 his first year and he played essentially a d-II schedule. I feel that much of the heat on Carey stems from higher expectations. Ten years ago the idea that TU football would regularly be bowl eligible was unfathomable. The odds that a coach in his first season at TU would be bowl eligible would have been deemed near zero. If he gets to 8 wins, he did a hell of a job.
Dalvin Cook: 5’10”, 210, 4.5 40 yd dash.
I. Wright can make it at the next level as a Dalvin Cook type RB. Temple is stupid by keeping him at WR. Disservice to him and TUFB.
A disservice? Dude, he’s 6’2″ and he’s never been a RB, so he probably isn’t well versed in how to spin off hits and survive 25 touches in a game. And he runs upright like a track guy. He’d get killed running the ball with any frequency.
7 carries 48 yards as a running back in 38-0 win over Stony Brook
7 isn’t 25.
This is one crazy Football season as I see Odd at Temple +5 / Tulane -5.
Golly Gee Wiz.
The Vegas folks have little faith in the Owls when it comes to the money line$.
And this after our D did good job on USF.
So then Tulane must be pretty-darn-good on O ?
Before worrying about I. Wright being a running back, I would settle for him returning some punts rather than making a fair catch every time. Is this coming from the coaches, or a lack of confidence?
He did not lack confidence the last three years. Something is wrong and I can’t put my finger on it NIU had good punt returners under Carey so I can’t imagine they are telling him to fair catch
The difference this year is that teams are sending three guys after him. He’s not an unknown commodity any longer. I’ve watched him the whole season as you have and but for a couple of times, his decision to fair catch was the right one. Another thought, which I don’t believe is real, is that subconsciously afraid to get hurt, which explains his reticence to risk a return.
Redshirt junior Vincent Picozzi, who has started all nine games at right guard for Temple, is out for the season after suffering an injury Thursday night during a 17-7 win at South Florida.
That is really bad news, best wishes to him for a full recovery for next season. It looked bad on tv Thursday. On the bright side I guess, get someone experience for next year.
Vince’s injury hurts. Fizzy’s writing is nice/concise. All posters accurate. Must beat Tulane. I’m an old soul waiting 84 years for a SportsCenter highlight win.
I’m not really that old, but I want to see the throw-back jerseys and a Hail Mary Temple win.
Ok, boomer 🙂
