I know all about pain.
If I have to go through another MAC season of forced Tuesday and Wednesday night home games and horrible road officiating, I’m going to have an ulcer.
I just decided I would be the greatest graduate in school history if I won the $60 million in the lottery tonight.
I would get into my beat-up, 125,000-mile 2004 Chevy Cavalier tomorrow morning, drive to Harrisburg and have one of those oversized checks deposited.
|Most current BE fans are unaware that Temple
traveled 6,000 of its own fans to the New Mexico Bowl
or that 20,000 of the 23,000 in attendance at the 2009
Eagle Bank Bowl were Temple fans, but those
figures have been documented as true by both bowls.
Then I would get back into the Cavalier, drive back across the state to Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue, write out a check for $2.5 million and tell Temple AD Bill Bradshaw to wait a day or two so it can clear the bank.
I wouldn’t even blink an eye.
Then the Temple Alumni Review would write an article about me with the simple headline: “Greatest Grad Ever.”
I’d be the greatest grad ever because with my meager $2.5 million check, I’d faciilate a gold mine that would keep the school in the black long after I’m dead (which hopefully isn’t for 30 or so more years).
Think about it.
Temple has a 70K stadium in the heart of Big East territory. Lincoln Financial Field is a veritable gold mine and Temple is sitting right on top of it.
To get to that gold, all Temple needs to do is become a more than competitive Big East team, which most football experts will tell you is true right now.
It has a Big East-ready football team now, with the best coaching staff in the Big East and the only coaching staff with three of its top five positions filled with guys who have won national championships as key parts of Florida’s staff.
Temple also has 15K students who will be living on campus for the next 30 years, who will become involved rabid alumni fans.
