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.

We are now less than one month away from the 2012 Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park and just six days away from the premiere of HBO’s Flyers-Rangers 24/7 series. With things starting to come together and take shape, we’re back with another one of these amusing time lapses, slowly (or, I guess, quickly) revealing the changes to CBP in preparation for the week-long outdoor events schedule.

Word is now out that Madson has declined arbitration with the club, effectively ending his time with the Phightins, save for some head-spinning move on the part of Ruben Amaro. Mad Dog leaves town not just with a World Series ring, but also (little known fact) with a staggering number of the club’s minor league records for starting pitchers.

Though we were hearing that “money and length” were the sticking points of the ongoing Jimmy Rollins-Philadelphia Phillies free agent talks—as if that were “breaking” news—we’re also hearing that Jimmy might be on his way back to town…maybe.

The Temple Owls were erratic for parts of their 86-74 home opening win over Central Michigan, but started and finished strong enough to make sure the outcome was never in doubt. The win is their first of the year at the Liacouras Center and their 23rd straight at home, a new building record.
