Morning Cup O' Mud: Opening Night Hangover, Norman White Out For Year

Last night couldn't have gone much worse. In the back of my mind I knew we were going to lose. I just didn't think it'd be that bad. We just couldn't do anything right, whether it was on offense, defense or special teams. I really want to think Temple is just a lot better than anyone thought, but our flaws were shining bright. It could be a long year.

The worst news of the night came was that WR Norman White is going to miss the entire season because of a left foot fracture being classified as a lisfranc injury. I don't really know what that is, so we'll just call it a fractured foot. He'll be back for next season but this is a tough lost. Heal up quickly Norm.
