Temple, Rejoice

By Adam Caparell - October 28, 2006

Temple got its first win of the season, and its first win in a long, long time, against Bowling Green. Congratulations to Al Golden. First time since Nov. 2004 that the Owls won a game. So how bad does that make Bowling Green? The Falcons losing to Temple: Urban Meyer must be ashamed.

And who takes the mantle as the worst team in Division I-A now? Duke? FIU? But there are any number of other disappointing teams that could easily claim the crown.

- This line from the AP’s recap of Iowa’s win over Northern Illinois: “The Hawkeyes held Garrett Wolfe, the nation's leading rusher, to 66 yards on 22 carries. His sputtering Heisman campaign is most likely finished.”

I’m sorry, but Garrett Wolfe’s slimmer than slim chances of winning the Heisman went out the door the first game he didn’t rush for at least 100 yards. That was two weeks ago against Miami.

- Notre Dame’s win over Navy was big for two reasons. It allowed the Irish to put up an impressive performance against an inferior opponent and vaunted Brady Quinn into the second position in the Heisman race after throwing for four touchdowns.

And let’s hope the Irish move up in the polls after putting up a bunch of points on the board so we won’t have to hear Charlie Weis complain this week. The last thing every one in the country who isn’t a Notre Dame fan wants to hear is Weis get on his soap box.

- USC is struggling big time at Oregon State. If the Trojans can’t establish a consistent running game, then they’re not going to have any shot at the BCS, let along the Beavers this afternoon. Why is that every week they look more vulnerable than the week before. It’s been very surprising to watch the Trojans not play up to their considerable potential.
