hey if your right, do you think temple will get to stay in the big east for next year ;D
Upon the National Championship being crowned on Temple in the Orange Bowl on January 4, 2005, that very moment, Big 10 Commissioner Delaney would meet with the Temple Athletic Director, Temple University President out on the Pro Player Stadium field, along with all the celebrating players and coaches and ABC annoucers. Right when Temple is given the National Championship Trophy, Big 10 Commissioner Delaney grabs the ABC/Stadium microphone and says, "There is no need to even discuss this. The Presidents of the 11 fine universities of the Big 10 took a vote at halftime. Given that Temple was up 56 to 3 on Baylor, we decided to have an emergency phone conference. All the 11 Big 10 member university presidents voted unanamously to invite Temple University to be its 12th member effective July 1, 2006, if they won tonights game. The 11 Presidents gave me the unconditional authority to extend this invitation to Temple if you indeed won tonight's Orange Bowl. Temple University, you indeed did. We, the fine 11 universities of the great Big 10 Conference officially invite Temple University to be our 12 member. We would be honored and humbled if you would accept our offer for Big 10 membership. We wait for your response."
Upon hearing this, the Temple University President responds that he would have to hold an emergency Temple University Board meeting to vote on this issue. He says, "wait a minute, I have to call a the board members. This may take 15 minutes or so, but I think we can have a vote momentarily, and I can get back to you while were here, and tell you Temple University's response to this gracious offer from the Big 10 Conference."
Well, the Temple University President is able to assemble a phone conference from his cell phone and not 5 minutes late, the Temple University President says. "This is been an amazing year. We have seen the transformation of our great institution of Temple University in this last season. We had an incredible season caped off by this Cinderella National Championship win tonight here in the Orange Bowl. We are awed and honored by the invitation to join the Big 10, as the 11 member presidents of the great conference has extended to us. I have just completed an emergency phone conference with the Temple University Board has unanamously voted to accept the invitation from 11 university presidents to become the 12th member of the Big 10 Conference on July 1, 2006."
The crowd cheers, and all the sports announcers and the sports critics faint simultaneously across the nation. It was truly an odd moment in sports history.
