Coach Rhule gives good news on Jabo Lee and makes other comments after 11th practice.
One of the many reasons why I love John Chaney because he refused to back down.
He’d take Temple on the road against the best teams and he’d win a lot of those battles. He instilled the mantra “Winning is an Attitude.”
I’ve got to like what I’m hearing out of the E-O so far this season. Khalif Herbin’s tweet was my favorite: “Temple University will not lose a football game.”
Temple University will not lose a football game.

Matt Rhule also said he expects to go to a bowl “this season.”
I expect all 85 players on scholarship and a few more not on scholarship would consider this season a failure if the team does not make a bowl game.
Our fans should take the same attitude.
Anything less is a losing attitude and not reaching that minimum goal of a bowl game should deem this season a failure to every fan living in reality. The “reality” is that this league is more New Conference USA than Old Big East and that Temple’s last seven recruiting classes would have been ranked in the top half of CUSA and one, the 2012 class, would have been the top class in CUSA. Temple should be able to beat teams like Tulane, Tulsa, Memphis and East Carolina right now. The Owls already have proven they can beat teams like Navy and Uconn in the not-too-distant past. That’s the reality.
Winning is an attitude and so is losing. Maybe John Chaney can come down and say a few words before Vanderbilt.
