Big East Expansion: Temple Not Leaping On Leap Day, Apparently

The Temple Owls' Board of Trustees Athletics Committee (proper nouns) was all set to meet Wednesday about their long-presumed return to the Big East, but OH COME ON. The Temple News reports that meeting has been canceled, and instead there will be an executive meeting to talk about contracts.

The report cites Assistant Vice President of University Communications Ray Betzner (proper nouns) as saying there's unlikely to be anything announced Wednesday, meaning it'll be another four years before Temple's in the Big East on a Leap Day.

Temple's last Leap Day in the Big East occurred in 2004, the year it was kicked out of the conference for not giving much of a hoot (owl term) about football. Temple appears to only make major moves in Leap Years. In 2008, it seems they decided to start going to bowl games again pretty soon, and so they did. Thanks for listening.
