Editor’s Note: Like many of us, a 38-3 loss to a Tulane team that barely beat South Alabama left a lot of Temple fans speechless and Fizzy was one of them. He could understandably muster up only a few words in the form of this poem
By Dave “Fizzy” Weinraub
I watched the game in disbelief,
as our football program crashed on a reef
Yes, there were injuries and infections galore,
but I couldn’t help shuddering at the final score
We couldn’t tally on the air or ground,
and somewhere an offense needs to be found
A freshman quarterback killed us with passes,
our coverages and strategies stuck in molasses.
I’ve watched Temple football for over sixty years,
and this downward spiral has me literally in tears
The many excuses simply won’t float,
All I can say is make sure you vote.
Tuesday: How bad is it?
