Rejecting The Idea Of Temple's 'MAC Haters' - Hustle Belt
Temple Football Forever proprietor Mike Gibson didn't see this as a close game, feeling that all along this was going to be a TU blowout. And it was. His reaction to showboat his prediction was to not only gloat about it, but brand everybody else who didn't predict a blowout as a hater.

Gibson calls out all the blogs who were wrong about the Owls and Villinova. He sites, I think, my prediction but is classy enough to leave my name out of it.

Well you can't call out the conference for hating without the one blogger who does the whole conference responding. Matt Sussman examines 'Temple Hatred"

And speaking of MAC hate!

Hansen: Iowa State will be flat broke if TV cash disappears | The Des Moines Register |

Scouting Stony Brook - Sports - The Spectrum - University at Buffalo
Stony Brook doesn't look like an impressive team on paper, but its near-victory over UTEP suggests otherwise. Senior quarterback Chazz Anderson impressed last weekend with his 32-for-49, 276-yard performance. If he can get the Bulls' offense going early and minimize mistakes, Buffalo will find itself in the win column.
