Friday Stock Report: 10/14

With no disrespect to Temple, their fans, players, coaches, etc., but here is a list of the seven Hurricanes who will score touchdowns in tomorrow's game against the Owls.

OPENING THOUGHTS…
I know it would have been a lot better if a player wrote this article. However, I don't think Coker would be too fond of a player listing off all of his teammates that will be scoring against Temple. So it is my duty to do so...

FACTS
Fact is, Temple is terrible. They are 0-6 and ranked 100th or worse in 12 of the 14 main statistical categories. In the other two categories, they are ranked 86th and 89th respectively. They are allowing 49.5 points per game, so here are seven players who will score touchdowns tomorrow.

RB Tyrone Moss
Moss leads the team with eight touchdowns including five in the last two games. He's averaging 94 yards in total offense per game and he's bound to get a touchdown this week, if not two.

RB Andrew Johnson
Johnson made his season debut last week against Duke and picked up 46 yards on his first carry. Coker wants to get him more carries and this is a great game to do so.

RB Derron Thomas
Thomas is due. Before the season, I expected Thomas to be the breakout player of the year. His longest run of the year is 28 yards, I expect him to have a long run for a touchdown against Temple.

WR Ryan Moore
Kyle Wright will find Moore in the endzone for his third touchdown of the season. Moore is looking for a breakout game and this week is a good opportunity. Last week against Duke he had seven catches for 87 yards and a touchdown, but was involved in two turnovers.

WR Terrell Walden
My 'sleeper' pick for a touchdown goes to Walden this week. Walden has excellent speed and has steadily improved at receiver since switching in the spring. Walden has yet to record a catch in his career.

TE Greg Olsen
With a new screen play in the playbook for Olsen, look for him to score a touchdown. Olsen scored his first touchdown of the season last week on a great one-handed catch.

KR Devin Hester
Temple is 102nd in punt return average allowed and last in kickoff return coverage. He's due. Last week he should have scored had it not been for a penalty on the return. This week Hester scores. He's too fast and too much of a playmaker not to score in a game like this.

It should be a fun one!
