The Ivy's loss is Temple's gain
Whether you are for or against the prospect of postseason football one day for the Ivies, you can't discount the allure playoffs or bowl games have for high school recruits.
One example is Niyi Adewole, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker from Upper Darby High, who orally committed to play for Temple this week. Adewole was recruited by Columbia and some other Ivies, but he liked what he saw in the Owls who went from a 1-11 team in 2006 to a 9-3 bowl-bound squad this season.
I've advocated for the playoffs many times on these pages and you're all probably sick of it by now, but I still want to make it happen.
I do look forward to the FCS championship game this weekend between Villanova and Montana. That should be a good game, and I bet the winner could whip Temple too!
Speaking of Temple, Zamel Johnson, a 5-10, 175-pound defensive back from Hofstra, will transfer to the Owls. Still no Hofstra players going Ivy as of yet. The clock is ticking...
