glimmer of hope for Temple

PHILADELPHIA – January 28, 2014 (WPVI) — Coaches and students at Temple University got to state their case … to try to save their team. A closed door meeting was held to discuss the university’s decision to cut several varsity sports. …

Temple President Neil Theobald said this is not something he wanted to do, but they are simply so overextended.

“I certainly will consider everything that was said today. I did hear some new information that I hadn’t heard before,” Theobald admitted. “And we will come back to the board with our consideration of everything that was said today and see we’re open to all ideas.”

I was at a South Africa training camp this weekend with Jesse Kitzen-Abelson, MAG Coach at Pinetown Gymnastics. Jesse was a two-year co-captain for Temple, graduating 2011.

Would Jesse be a coach today if the Temple program had not existed?
