The Heisman Trophy comes to Philadelphia

Saturday, October 30, 2010, 9:38 AM
This is a relatively minor item as things go, but I thought it would be an unusual way to start off this week's local college football preview post. The Heisman Trophy Trust is in town today to present the Penn athletic department with one of the eponymous pieces of hardware. It is in honor of the... Read more

The last time I wrote about Chester Stewart on here, I got roasted for the particular choice of word I used to describe his poor play. Well, I've heard that same word used by a few friends who are Temple alumni and Owls fans over the last few weeks. So this time, I'm going to let you choose the adjective... Read more

Sagarin predictions for today's games

Saturday, October 9, 2010, 7:00 AM
It's a relatively quiet weekend on the local college football scene, as none of the region's Division I teams are playing at home. Temple is at Northern Illinois, Penn is at Bucknell, and Villanova has a bye week. The closest Division I-A home games to us are Penn State's homecoming clash with Illinois... Read more
