This Owl Alum and my granddaughter witnessed that game and shared our joy with my fellow Temple fans. We cheered, “Abandon Ship”, as it became clear that the Owls would prevail. We were also joined by our friend, a Navy vet, ( I served in the Army), and he quietly watched as we enjoyed our reverie.
Glory days! Who could have imagined the decent of Owl football to where it had sunk under former program-destroyer head coach Rod Carey? We were on top of the college football world for a few unforgettable seasons! But I am encouraged thus far with Coach Drayton and his desire to reach out to Owl Nation in support of the program. Nowhere to go but up at this point after a disastrous 2021 season.
I’d be a lot more encouraged when news of signing another quarterback breaks to at minimum provide AAC quality depth in the fall. I trust Stan is working on it.
The joy of the Temple Fans, the sense of brotherhood, was everywhere for that game at Navy. We had a great time in the tent, and also talked with Mr Mike G in the tent. Then in the stands we were seated with all sorts of Temple fans in the 2nd level, damn what a great view,( I want that type stadium) — anyway, we were mixed in with students and they were so great and fun to be with. That game joy was another level from the Penn Sate Killing.
The way it should be! With a promising new HC and staff in place, let’s look forward to better days ahead! I know it’s early, but after those dark days with the last HC and what I’ve seen so far with Coach Drayton, I believe we are on our way back to respectability. This program has been down many times over its long history and somehow survived. We will be back!
Absolutely. We’re looking forward to return of TEMPLE TUFF. I am also thinking of making the trip to Navy, with a friend who is a Navy vet, (I served in the Army). Can’t wait for REAL TEMPLE FOOTBALL!!
