Temple Interim Head Football Coach Ed Foley talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the upcoming Walk-On's Independence Bowl, his Owls team and his enthusiasm for the game.

Foley, who took to the dais at Monday night's team announcement party, put the game and Shreveport at the epicenter of the sports universe with his inspirational speech.

From philly.com:

“I hope that we play well but I know that we’ll play hard,” he exclaimed. "And we’re gonna find out about Duke, and we’re going to find out about Temple, and which one of those football clubs wants to hit each other harder, longer.

“That’s what we’re going to decide here on the 27th.”

Foley also boasted about something pretty difficult to prove, but perhaps easy to believe, while imploring those in attendance to come out and participate in bowl-game festivities.

“I hope you’ll [come] see the finest group of men who has ever come through Shreveport.”

He also said to locals that the Owls “are going to love you, and they’re going to love Shreveport.”
