KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Matt Rhule about the upcoming Temple Football season.
The Owls went just 2-10 in 2013, losing a decade’s worth of heartbreakers – six of their ten losses were by nine points or fewer, four came by three points or fewer.
Each team has a new head coach and those fellows are seeing some improvements in their teams’ “blind spots”.
Temple head football coach Matt Rhule got an up close look at Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater this year. Though Bridgewater has been impressive, and at this point is widely considered to be the first quarterback taken in the 2014 NFL Draft if he makes himself available, Rhule says he’d still take Nick Foles.
Two fourth-down plays in a span of 75 seconds kept Temple from winning its first-ever American Athletic Conference game Saturday.
What a disappointing offensive show the Birds put on at The Linc on Sunday. As some headlines said, it looked like Foles folded. As a result, Dallas leads the NFC East today with the Eagles second.
The win snaps a seven-game losing streak for Temple, and a six-game home losing streak, both dating back to last season.
Brendon Kay sparked a Cincinnati offense that helped the Bearcats get started on the road back from a heartbreaking tragedy.
The Eagles lost a game they could have and should have won last Sunday. They couldn’t contain San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers, who threw for 410 yards, completing 36 of 47 passes without an interception. That was their most significant failure. But what the game amounted to was third downs.
Believe it or not, college football season is quickly approaching and on Monday the Temple Owls hit the practice field, opening preseason camp.
The Temple Owls are winding down their first spring workouts under new head coach Matt Rhule.
