What a mess at Temple.
BB, Temple AD, and their Pres. need to be lobbying hard for FULL All-Sports acceptance into the MAC.
Temple allowing their bb coach, Chaney, demand staying in A10 vs an all-sports MAC membership shows Temple, administratively, is not speaking with one solid voice that is in the longterm best interest of the school. The A10 is hardly that much more prestgious in bb than the MAC, they are more on par, and given the circumstances, it should be a nobrainer.
Compare Temples public relations responses to that of Western Kentuckys'. The Hilltoppers certainly say the right things to support their case, whereby Temple lacks cohension, and certainly is no Notre Dame in holding cards for the conferences merry-go-round. The same Temple indecisiveness and impotence, in part, helped get them booted from the fb BE.
The MAC should deliver a firm NO to Temple for fb only. The MAC does not need this; and Temple bb could potentially help the MAC.
