Sidebar, but anyone notice that Dunphy's Temple team that shot out of the gate and had a few big wins has completely tanked? They've lost their first 4 league games to fall to last place and really bottomed out today scoring 39 points in 21 point loss at UCF.

On Twitter and their message board, it looks like even the biggest Dunphy defenders have given up. Will be curious to see how the rest of their season pans out. It's been a while since we've beaten them, so wouldn't mind if they continue to struggle for a few weeks and then get themselves all sorted out after our game, haha.

I wonder if Fran regrets leaving Penn.

I'm sure he has done much better financially.

I am sure that he does not regret it. He has had some very good years at Temple. And remember, the team he left had virtually no blue chip players below the seniors---he would have had to recruit an entirely new team as did Miller. He very likely saw it as a good time to move on---in addition, the AD was a big problem.

Just saw that The Mensch's team just pulled a huge road upset against SMU. Maybe too soon to be writing his Owl epitaph. SMU had a home winning streak of 33 games and was going for their program record.

Yeah... still feeling like the end. Just lost to Memphis at home (when they were like an 8-10 point favorite), a game they just had to win.
