Temple is a public university. Their football bleeds money. They have been trying forever to make football relevant but they can’t draw flies to the Linc and nobody cares about Temple football. It is a basketball school, and I would think basketball revenues are bigger than football though they don’t draw great at Liacorous Ctr. I was there this week for a game vs Big 5 rival, St Joe’s, and even that game was not a sellout.

I think they were relevant in men’s rowing, and perhaps woman’s, but probably not the other lost sports. I know a kid who rowed there and stroked a gold medal U.S. boat in the Olympics.
