We have a very tough non-conference (three P5s on the road) and conference schedule, since not only do we play in the much tougher of the MAC divisions but we also have crossovers with what are expected to be the top 2 MAC East teams (Ohio and Miami) on the road. If we get 8-9 wins I'd say Hammock had a heck of a first season!

They played an even tough non conference last year, won 8 games and the MAC, and you still hated Carey.

I would almost guarantee Carey does not last more than 3 years at Temple. The big thing Carey left the program in much WORSE shape than it was when he started. That is always the barometer that should be used. I also think this year's non conference is more difficult than last year. Florida State ended up being horrid and I think Nebraska is much better than last year's FSU team and a top 25 caliber team, BYU is on par with Vanderbilt probably, and Utah is obviously a better team this year, and NIU goes there this year. It is a completely new offense, offensive line needs to be rebuilt, you lose best defensive player in NIU history, there is uncertainty at QB, a 5 or 6 win season would be successful.

I'm guessing you don't have much in the way of resources, so maybe he'll do better here with a bit more to work with. Either way, he's been a clear upgrade over Geoff Clown Collins.

EDIT: And for as bad as we've been in our history, you'd have to go back to 1955 for the last time a head football coach at Temple didn't last 4 years, excluding those who left for other head coaching positions. That coach was CFB HOF Josh Cody.

You should be proud of your team, Temple has come so far and is now. SOLID program. Very tough out, Carey should do fine for you.

He's good enough to get you to a bowl game. Which you will lose by 4 TDs no matter who you're playing.

I’m not sure if you’ve looked at our bowl record, but that would be nothing new. I don’t even really care about that unless we’re in a major bowl.

Is the Orange Bowl big enough for you?

Many here have said how bowl games (at least non-major bowl games) don't matter. How much of that is because we have gotten our butts handed to us in bowl games in recent years is anyone's guess. I for one have always said all games (including bowl games) matter; of course some games are more important than others.
