My problem with it is that they can say that they will have to face all these ranked opponents at this moment. However, Based on what criteria are 10 team, including every team from the west, ranked from conference? ESPN placed them all their and many will surely fall apart like Top 5 Georgia from last year. Outside of Alabama who played maybe the Big 10's 3rd best team, its not like the other teams are killing it with their non conference opponents.. ESPN Still wants the SEC to be relevant so bad they will throw everyone in the pot so they can build whoever wins the SEC up as a truly worthy juggernaut
As a Temple Alum Its good to gear people actually give Temple Credit. I was at the Temple Game and outside of the first 10 minutes Temple Dominated. The Temple Defense this year returns everyone from a top 10 defense a year ago. It was an awesome feeling finally getting that PSU Monkey off our back. PSU's Offensive line was abysmal and they are weak at LB especially with the Injuries during the game. That Said Temple is going to surprise people this year especially with their defense. If the TU Offense can put point on the board we will go bowling. I understand the "Temple, Yes Temple" based on History but this year that's not the case.
Also, I dont understand the Hackenberg potential at all. Thats why so many NFL Qbs Flame out these days I guess. Potential doesnt mean you can play
I just can't see how JT having a decent/good year and then sitting out next year. I know its an IF at this point but with the schedule we should still win 9 games minimum, if not more and JT will grow with every game hopefully. After a year of experience He is just going to go from starter to Backup? I just Dont see it. It would be one thing if this was another position but there can only be 1 QB. Look at Kenny G if we found a way to play 2 qbs last year would have shown it.
I personally think Braxton will see this and Go to the NFL. I would love to have him back but JT has already used his redshirt and I cant see him staying with the team if they take away his starting spot.
Congrats Welcome Dre'Mont
I kept muttering to no one in particular. "We cant win this game 1-0." meaning we have to attack because playing defensive will get us beat. I was right and I owe it all to tressel ball
agreed. sitting in NY on this beautiful day without cable trying to watch my buckeyes
As a Temple alum I have seen Lee for 3 seasons. He may not statistically turn the ball over a lot but the scouting report is spot on about his hands they are dreadful. He has good rebounding stats but they could have been so much better. It felt like he was constantly missing easy loose balls and either knocking them out of bounds or directly to the opponent under the basket for an easy dunk. Temple this year, due to poor recruiting and injuries, had very limited players and even had to resort to giving serious minutes to walk-on who in reality should have never gotten off the bench. Therefore, Lee had to play a ton of minutes and also played horrendous defense because he had to make sure he stayed in the game.
Lee has potential for sure but I would not say he is polished. I wish him well but he seemed disinterested this year. Hopefully, wherever he end up he gets a look at by the pros. That said Temple had a horrendous season but did manage to beat a top 25 team this year (SMU) with Lee out with injuries. THs might be the best situation for all parties

@PBR_POUNDER is the greatest twitter name I could have imagined for a College marketing intern. I dont know who came up with it but I think its the reason I love this site. If Andrew chose it and you still let him work for you, I think thats incredible and shows you guys dont take yourselves to serious but at the same time are dedicated to provideing the best coverage possible. If you chose it for him, then that is just downright hilarious
