Well, nothing left to do but pour myself a rusty nail, throw on some Steely Dan and countdown the hours until Buffalo-Temple tomorrow.
The Golden Era Begins
The venerable SMQ had this to say about Temple:
I would think it would be almost impossible to be so incredibly bad in so many areas, since teams would tend to not throw very much, for example, or you, the incompetent, would at least pick up a few yards and a garbage touchdown or two trying to catch up from five touchdowns back against the third string after halftime. But of the 13 non-special teams categories the NCAA tracks, Temple finished 100th or worst - that is, among the bottom 20 in the country - in ten of them:
• Rush Offense 118
• Total Offense 119
• Scoring Offense 116
• Rush Defense 119
• Pass Eff. Defense 106
• Total Defense 117
• Scoring Defense 118
• Turnover Margin 118
• Sacks 106
• Sacks Allowed 117
This is a team we can get behind!
Consider this your Temple-Buffalo Open Thread, as the two worst programs of the '00s do battle, the game starts at 12 CST.
Since 2003 Temple is 4-44, while Buffalo is 4-40. Buffalo won the match last season, 9-3 in OT.
