Things got pretty exciting today with three commits with multiple P5 offers.

I saw that Cincy picked up a couple of nice DB recruits yesterday too. The talent level in this conference only going to get better!

Trad Beatty from Ben Lippen is the real deal. The only issue with him is he hasn't played a ton of talent in SCACS. I wouldn't be shocked for him to be a really productive player for y'all but he will need a couple of years.

UCF had similar problems at the citrus bowl. Just by moving on campus we increased attendance dramatically, primarily with the sale of season tickets. If Temple is waiting to get 18K season ticket holders its never going to happen.
Temple needs 18K season ticket holders to build the donation pyramid. If 18K can't commit to seeing Temple play every week fro 6 weeks regardless of how many seats are available, they will never be able to build a stadium.

It is not about ticket demand and availability, it is about having a fervent fan base. We ain't there yet. No where near it.

Whether a stadium ever happens (or not), I can assure you there is no arbitrary season ticket number Temple is waiting to get to in order to move forward.

Sounds more realistic than what other Temple Fans / Alumni have quoted on this thread as I have never read or heard that the ticket requirement is in place unless it was put in place after the previous president who supported the project was fired. However I'll respect the replies of other posters since I have no other information on the subject. The long and the short of this is that Temple will be at the LINC through the negotiated extension and probably past that extension through at least another extension as the project appears to be on hold for now or at least tied up by local politicians for the for seeable future. I like attending Temple and Eagle games at the LINC anyway - easy access from 95, great tailgating facilities in the parking lots, and amenities such as beer during the game in the stadium make the game day experience great. Eating in the Verizon Center after the game also adds to the great game day experience too. Good luck on the new stadium in the mean time I'm satisfied at the LINC. 07-coffee3 04-cheers

Seriously. I think general attendance is much more of a 'concern' than pure season ticket numbers. I think we're trending upward there too.

My numbers are arbitrary. No official has stated any such thing, but let's be real here, if a 6-6 Temple team cannot support 18K committed season ticket attendees, the stadium will never pay for itself. Look at some of the numbers other schools have to pay yearly to keep up financing payments for new stadiums. Jeffrey's $3 million a year looks reasonable by comparison.

I agree that 22K in a 69K seat stadium looks horrid, but an ECU level fan base would change perceptions of the LINC in my humble opinion.

simply not realistic. I don't think many outside of ECU in this conference can legitimately say they have 18K season ticket holders every year. I know UCF can't. I'd be interested to see who has 18K season ticket holders on average over the last 10 years in this league? ECU and???

While I agree that it's hard an outside of ECU doubt anyone comes close to that consistently. I do believe our schools are large enough and in large enough markets that 18k season tickets should be a goal. Problem is that by many being in large markets it's very easy for fans to not show up for games or drop out if teams struggle.

But 18k season tickets should be ALL our goals to shoot for.

definitely should be a goal and I know USF, UCF, and a couple others are close. But I think Temple fan has a really unrealistic outlook on college football and fan support for AAC level teams, even ones with usually good attendance in the league.

RE: Temple Football Recruiting
Adam Dimichele is a 31 year old former quarterback currently on Temple's football staff. He's a nice guy, hard worker and had a decent career @ Temple. Unfortunately, he's about a 100 million short of a 100 million dollars and his opinion about Temple's FB Stadium is worthless. He may or may not want it as bad as some of Temple's fans, some of whom consistently post totally erroneous information here.

The feasibility study was conducted over a year ago and found the grounds are too small, privately owned homes would have to be purchased and bulldozed, a major east/west city thoroughfare would have to be closed in addition to a minor north /south thoroughfare already being hotly debated, traffic patterns and present parking facilities would not accommodate 25,000 people flooding into the area and Temple didn't have the money to remedy any of it.

Its not happening and readers discussing it would be better served talking about an inhabited space station on Mars. That's closer to being realized than a Temple OC FB Stadium suitable for FBS play.

Conference is off to a good start. I'm guessing half the league signs 10+ with at least one P5 offer.

ECU. Jadakis Bonds offered by WVU. Offer not listed on Rivals.

Thanks.

Houston picked up a commit last night from one of the top 4-5 QBs in Texas with multiple P5 offers.
