    All athletes can sign endorsement deals as of this summer. The Melton’s were signed by NB DEVCO, for example.

    Yup, exactly right. Wimsatt also isn’t the first to reclassify from ‘22 to ‘21 to get the NIL money- Ewers, the number one overall ‘22 commit and an for tOSU was the first to do it a couple weeks ago for a $1.4M NIL deal.

    Difference being Ewers had to leave high school and reclassify to get the money since Texas (where he is from and played HS ball) has a law prohibiting HS athletes from profiting from their NIL. Not sure, but I don’t believe Kentucky has a similar law.

    So in just about every game I've had on this week I hear the announcer say "___________ the transfer out of Temple with the big play".

    Probably has something to do with why we just beat them by 47 points.

    I think my favorite thing about Rutgers football is the love affair the fanbase has with Adam Korsak. What a legend.

    Article form the Temple site, mentions that RU didn’t show much in terms of scheme and that we ran more in the second half because Temple only ran with 3 down lineman. I’m concerned with the pass game but this article helped explain why we didn’t do more with Vedral.


    Looking at the final score from Saturday, one might think Temple’s defense was largely to blame for the 61-14 beatdown that the Owls received at the hands of Rutgers in their season opener – but that really was not the case.

    Despite surrendering seven touchdowns and a field goal to the Scarlet Knights’ offense, the unit did not play as bad as the final score indicated. Nevertheless, though the defense was placed in a handful of tough situations from the onset of the game, it still needed to play better.

    “A lot of people want to blame the offense, but the defense was involved, too,” senior safety and team captain Amir Tyler said following the game. “They did put up 60 points, so you know we’ve just got to get back in the lab and get to those corrections.”

    The Owls came out of the gates hot on the defensive side of the ball displaying a 3-3-5 scheme that nobody had seen from Temple before Saturday. It was effective in the early going as Rutgers was forced to punt on three of its first four possessions.

    “That’s a scheme [Rutgers quarterback Noah Vedral] probably hasn’t seen before,” Tyler said. “So in the first half, he was kind of confused on what to do and what not to do.”

    But the Owls couldn’t capitalize on their solid defensive play as the offense and special teams proceeded to turn the ball over on three straight possessions. This forced the defense to play with its backs to a short field in each situation – first at its own 2-yard line, then the 28, then the 22. Just like that, the Scarlet Knights scored three touchdowns and Temple trailed, 26-0.

    “I mean, it definitely hurt us a lot,” Tyler said. “But us being a defense, we’ve been in that position multiple times, so we can’t blame that on the offense or special teams. We’ve got to just shut up and just play defense at the end of the day. We still have to execute our plays and that’s what we didn’t do.”

    After being backed against the wall early, the Temple defense responded, forcing punts on Rutgers’ next three possessions, which allowed the Owls to cut the deficit to 26-14 in the third quarter.

    Then, the defense made its first major mistake of the game and the wheels started to come off.

    Temple gave up a quick score on a short pass from Vedral to Bo Melton, on which junior cornerback Keyshawn Paul, who played a stellar game up until that point, whiffed on his tackle attempt, allowing Melton to race away for a 40-yard touchdown. Then the Rutgers rushing attack took over.

    “Once they figured out that we only had the three linemen in the front, they took advantage of that by just running power, G-spot, stretch – just running the ball a lot more,” Tyler said.

    The Scarlet Knights ran for 137 of their 220 rushing yards over the course of their final four drives – three of those drives ended in rushing touchdowns, while the fourth was the final drive of the game and reached the Temple 12 before time expired.

    So what happened to the Temple defense, which had been fairly solid for the better part of three quarters? Was it simply that the Owls got tired? Tyler didn’t necessarily feel that was the case.

    “I think it was just more of an effort thing – people hustling to the ball, running to the ball, straining to get a tackle,” he said. “We’ve got to do more of us wanting to be physical. That’s how I feel. We just had to be a lot more physical. They out-physicaled us.”

    It did appear that Temple’s defensive effort waned as the game got more and more out of reach. But the unit showed some upside for the remainder of the season.

    Temple managed to hold the Scarlet Knights to 365 yards of offense, including 145 through the air. Coverage in the secondary appeared solid throughout the game, as Rutgers never really took shots downfield. The Owls also recorded nine tackles for loss, which means they were able to sniff out plays early and often.

    The biggest issue, however, was that the Owls didn’t make plays when they needed to. They forced no turnovers and every trip that Rutgers made into the red zone, aside from the final drive of the game, resulted in the Scarlet Knights coming away with points (7 of 8 times). That needs to be addressed, or else the Owls will be in for a long season.

    “Rutgers came out there and executed their gameplan,” Tyler said. “They did less things than we thought they would do in their gameplan, and they executed by being more physical and having more effort. Effort always wins, regardless of missed assignments.”
