Hmmm, FS54, maybe you don't recall but I drove my Studebaker to Tulane Stadium on Friday nights including an SEC game against Miss State in the early '60's. Miami used to have regular Friday night home games as well then.

Yea, I remember that there were games on Friday nights back then, but they were few and far between. I also remember ushering at games when I was a Boy Scout. :roll:

Weather. Still ten days out but typical Philly weather this time of year would be right around 50 degrees at game time dropping to mid 40s at sundown.

For New Orleanians this means Alaskan fur parkas, long underwear, and hot chocolate.

For Midwesterners, shorts and polos, Bloody Marys.

I'm on a business trip to Wisconsin right now and the host (who is from there) sent us an email about it yesterday and said "high will be 35, so you'll only need a light jacket". I had to chuckle.

I drove my 1952 Buick Special Straight 8 Hardtop coupe up Audubon Blvd. onto campus in the early 1960s (when I hadn't blown out the clutch for the umpteenth time).

Spent 14 winters in the Twin Cities. In our neighborhood, the Moms agreed that our kids going to school could only wear shorts when the temperature was about 32. And when it warmed up to 32, they all did wear shorts.

Tough hombres. I posted here a couple of years ago that while in New Orleans in December a couple of years ago when a cold front came through overnight and temps dropped from the upper 70s to the upper 50s. I really did see people wearing fur parkas on Canal.

It’s what you’re used to.

So true. The high school and college kids wear flip flops with those shorts at temps below 32! its hard to imagine how cold they are.

So the basketball game is at 1pm. Looks like two events at the same time. Hope you got unlimited data on the phone.

But what did they do when it was 90 at 10 pm in August?

Temple has a Big Five basketball game at 2pm ET vs LaSalle on the 16th. If the Owls lose tonight, the Linc will be especially empty next Saturday.

The two crowds tend to be different in Philly. The hoops crowd tends to be more slanted towards the civilian Big 5 crowd whereas the football crowd tends to be more a diehard core with a tie to Temple. Not saying there isn’t overlap but I know folks who’ve followed the Big 5 for years and didn’t go to any of the schools.

If Temple wins tonight there will probably a decent crowd in the lower level of the Linc similar in size to our homecoming in Yulman. The Sunday crowd for Eagles Patriots will be nuts. After a bye week the Eagles crowd will probably start arriving right after our game. :wink:

Watching Temple and USF who are currently tied 0-0 starting the 2nd. Temple hasn’t looked good on offense at all but have been playing good defense against a USF team that hasn’t looked good against anybody.

Update: Scoreless with about 5 mins left in the half. Temple lost a player to targeting in the 1st qtr and have another one under review.

Temple just returned a fumble for a TD to take a 14-0 lead with about 5 mins in the 3rd. Temple defense has 6 sacks. USF is tied for 120th in sacks allowed.

Ugly game. Temple gets a lot of QB pressure but I almost feel like that plays into our strength because we can run or throw little quick dumps to our backs. If McMillan makes the right reads we will score a lot against them.

Temple’s defense comes up big with nine sacks in 17-7 win at South Florida

Temple is now bowl eligible and both teams come into this one 6-3. For perception, this game will be important in shaking out the middle class of the AAC. Right now, Memphis, SMU, Navy, Cinci, and UCF are the upper class. Temple and Tulane are right in line after that group. Beating Temple next week will go a long way towards moving us closer to that top group. And we still have shots at SMU and UCF. Losing to Navy still really stings.

Before Navy, the outside consensus was that we were the 5th best team and on the edge of the upper echelon. Losing to Navy dropped us to perception of 6th and ended convos about being on the edge of the top group. Losing to Temple would move them ahead of us in perception as well, dropping us to 7th.

I thought so before watching last night and think it’s a “should win” after watching last night. Temple is pretty good on defense, though last night is no indication as they played the second worst offense in our conference. As I posted during the game, USF is tied for 120th in sacks allowed so the 9 sacks isn’t that impressive. Offensively, the starter (or the guy I presume to be the starter) looked bad. The back up came in and looked just as bad passing, but appeared to be a better runner than the other guy with plays that looked like designed runs.

Yes. Our offense is considerably more powerful and varied than USF's. We should be able to keep them off balance much of the time.
