The Philadelphia Eagles’ 8-8 season is unacceptable to owner Jeffrey Lurie…except for the ways in which it was acceptable.

Just in case you had any particular stereotypes in mind about the Dukies, you might be surprised to hear Coach K discuss some of the finer points of his street credibility within the city of Philadelphia.

Two nights after barely escaping a Buffalo team they were favored to beat by almost double digits, the Temple Owls (8-3) will head south down I-95 to take on the Delaware Blue Hens (5-5, 1-0 CAA) in their final contest of the calendar year.

The Flyers alumni will wear black No. 10 patches on their jerseys during Saturday afternoon’s Alumni Game in honor of the late Brad McCrimmon.

Call it luck, determination or even divine intervention, but whatever it was the Temple Owls are surely grateful. Their 87-85 overtime win against the Buffalo Bulls on Wednesday was as ugly as it was practically inexplicable.

Has Scootie Randall’s knee injury caused Temple to consider a medical redshirt for the would-be senior? The Owls host the Buffalo Bulls tonight at 7 p.m.

Reports came out very early on Tuesday morning—in fact, just as Lou Williams was leading a failed Sixers comeback in Portland—that the Sixers’ guard had been involved in another failed action earlier this week: a robbery.

Our condolences go out on this Wednesday afternoon to the Xaiver Silas fan club. The former Northern Illinois Huskie is among the four players announced by the 76ers as having been released.

From getting blown out by the 49ers in the dark of night to getting blown up by a masked super-villain in the The Dark Knight Rises, yesterday was a bit of a rough day for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Former St. Joseph’s basketball center Todd O’Brien has written a column in Sports Illustrated accusing the university’s athletic department—and head coach Phil Martelli, in particular—of prohibiting his transfer to the University of Alabama-Birmingham without cause.

Jimmy Rollins has another four years in order to cement his legacy as one of the greatest Phillies of all-time. And that’s coming straight from the man who signed him.
Dec 19, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT
With the Flyers on the road in Montreal (CSN / 94 WIP) and the Temple Owls still down in Texas (TCN / 1210 AM), surely there must be some pseudo-sporting going down in Philly tonight, right?

For the first time in the 68-game history of the Holy War, the Villanova Wildcats are scheduled to step foot on the campus of St. Joseph’s University. If that isn’t good enough to get you going, then I don’t what is.

Temple’s matchup with Wyoming is the Owls’ second bowl appearance in the last three seasons, but only their third in the last thirty-three. Having lost the 2009 EagleBank Bowl to UCLA, the program has not claimed a postseason victory since 1979. Fortunately for their hopes of making history, they’ve drawn a very favorable opponent in the Cowboys.

Bowl bids, especially in the modern era (when you can qualify even with a losing record), may not mean a lot to other institutions, but they certainly do to Temple. Such an appreciation for what others take for granted is no doubt the product of a history graced with such an opportunity a mere three times over the last thirty-three seasons.
Dec 14, 2011, 4:58 PM EDT
The Philadelphia 76ers have issued a press release informing all recipients that the organization has hired Broadway’s Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer to assist in the improvement of in-arena lighting.

From deflections to well-placed screens to a general lack of preparedness from not one, but two Capitals goalies, the Flyers proved on Tuesday night that good things do indeed happen when you put the puck on net.
Dec 12, 2011, 3:23 PM EDT
