DO THE TEMPLE OWLS WANT THIER OWN STADIUM?
Are there plans down the road for a new stadium or is the school content playing in eagle stadium? Just wondering.

Why wouldn't you want your own stadium? In the long run it will make Temple football more accessable for students and alumni, and will make more money to use your own facility instead of having to rent out Eagle stadium, and you won't have to work around the Eagles schedule either.

This has been kicked around for the last 20 Years. I think many of us Temple fans would love to see our own stadium on campus. I do not see that happening. I think that the admininstraton is happy with the renting the Eagles stadium. We did get a fifteen (15) year lease. With our pass performs on the field the stadium has been only about 1/3 filled which makes the stadium look empty. I would like to see an on campus stadium of about 35,000 and when we play a Penn State then move the game to the Linc. More important than our own stadium is to get a winning football team. Wtih our new coach, I feel we will get to our goal of producing a good product and making a few bowl games.

YES,YES,YES,...... the fans and the team do. A nice 30-35,000 seat place, much like UCONN. they were 1aa and now they are ahead of TU. They did all of that in about 5 years I f they can do it so can Temple... And screw that make PSU play a the new place no moving it to the linc, just so psu fields can go.

New Stadium?
Being a true division 1A football team involves having your own stadium. We would love to see our own stadium on campus! I hoped to see that happen during the time I was in school, but it didn't. As mentioned earlier, a business plan was proposed to President Liacourous, who was the University President at the time, not very long ago. Of course, the plan for a 35,000 seat, on-campus, football stadium fell about 41 million dollars short. Thus, the University President opted to negotiate a deal, with the Philadelphia Eagles, which would allow Temple to be the official tenents of Lincoln Financial Field on Saturdays. Therefore, the Philadelphia Eagles will make one million dollars a year for fifteen years just for allowing Temple to host their games at the LINC. The stadium is nice but it isn't a true college stadium, and it does not have that college feel to it. Now, an on campus stadium is the last piece that is missing from the puzzle.

anyway, got to go.

While having a stadium on campus is likely the most commonly prefered arrangement, look at a few exceptions of success off campus: USC in LA Coliseum , UCLA Rose Bowl , Memphis in Liberty Bowl , Miami in Orange Bowl as examples of where the off campus stadium has not hindred product on the field.

On the other hand UM Gofers abandoning Rollerdome for a new stadium near to campus.

It raises an interesting Q for me to research. Where do teams such as these located in or near big cities play: Cincy, Tulane, SMU, Houston, UMass, Rutgers, etc.

I think they need to go with a smaller, on campus stadium. When you get better, and play some big teams, you can sell it out and get a great home field advantage. I agree that a Penn state or Miami (or any big school) you get to play at home needs to be kept at a campus stadium.
