Team preview: Temple
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Most guys his age are sitting in their easy chair spoiling their grandkids. But as we've learned over the years, 71-year-old Temple coach John Chaney isn't like most guys.
Sitting just seven victories from the 700-win plateau and already in the Basketball Hall of Fame, Chaney still likes challenges. He believes that teams develop toughness or as he calls it, "teeth in their stomach," by taking on the toughest non-conference schedule that they can find. So, that means no cupcakes allowed on Chaney's schedule.
