PHILADELPHIA -- As Temple University kicks off its football season Friday, the schools drive for a 35,000-seat stadium appears to be stalled. Cheap Adidas Shoes Online China .Facing intense community opposition, skeptical legislators and a summer leadership crisis that forced Temples provost and president to step down, the school has no clear timeline to bring a proposal to City Hall.The Owls have paid rent since 2003 to play 6 miles away at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles. To build its own campus facility, Temple needs legislation passed by City Council -- but a spokeswoman for President Darrell Clarke, who represents the universitys North Philadelphia district, says first there must be a rigorous and respectful community engagement process.As of now, and as far as Council President Clarke is concerned, there is no stadium proposal for Council to consider, Clarkes spokeswoman Jane Roh said Friday.The $126 million plan has generated controversy since February, when Temples board of trustees approved a feasibility study, hired architects and tore down apartments on university land near campus.Neighbors worry that traffic and parking shortages could jam streets with drunk tailgaters. Temple wants to build across the street from an elementary school, a home for the elderly, and dozens of rowhomes.Why do you need a stadium in the middle of a residential area? said resident Karen Sisco. When school is in session and they decide to have a game on Friday night, you have the rigmarole, the students who get drunk and forget that it is a community and have bad behavior.But supporters say the stadium will make the campus -- historically a commuter school -- a tighter-knit community. The school serves more than 34,000 full-time students.You see every other southern school or out west -- thats everything they are, is football. Thats how you grow a university, said Tyler Baldo, a junior advertising major from Delaware.The university says rent at Lincoln Financial Field will triple from $1 million per year to $3 million starting 2018. So, by building its own facility -- financed through donations, loans and grants -- Temple wont have to pay rent. Officials say tuition will not be affected.It makes financial sense, university spokesman Ray Betzner said. That $3 million can be used to support the educational mission of the university.The Owls have seen a rebirth after decades as one of the worst programs in college football. They went 9-4 in 2009, their best record since 1979. Last season, they took off under coach Matt Rhule, including beating rival Penn State for the first time in 74 years in front of nearly 70,000 fans.Ive been at Temple since `02 -- I can give a really good lecture, but Im never going to get 69,000 people to come to it, said Scott Gratson, associate professor of communications. How the campus grew together, came together, over that event, was absolutely spectacular.Later in the season, ESPNs College Game Day visited ahead of Temples sold-out contest against Notre Dame. The team finished the season 10-4 and went to its fifth-ever bowl game. Applications shot up 15 percent last year -- which some attributed to football success, though theres little hard evidence.But when talk of a new stadium began, pushback was immediate. The Stadium Stompers, a group of student and community activists, capped off a series of protests earlier this year by presenting Temples then-president, Neil Theobald, with an award for Best Gentrifier.Temple occupies a large swath of impoverished North Philadelphia, and the largely black population has long been concerned about being shoved out by rising rents and an expanding university footprint.The student population living near campus has more than doubled in the past decade, and a May report by the Pew Charitable Trusts found that median home sale prices near the proposed stadium site have spiked tenfold in 13 years, from $11,250 to $140,000.Temple has tried to soothe concerns by stressing the potential benefits of a stadium, including new jobs and retail outlets.But residents remain unconvinced. The Stompers are planning more protests, with ideas ranging from blocking the homecoming parade to sculpting and stomping a mini-stadium.For now, Temple is conducting a $1.25 million traffic study.The university and the board was effectively going through due diligence -- a feasibility review of the project, and that hasnt changed, said Kevin Feeley, spokesman for Temples board of trustees. We are still doing our due diligence. Adidas Shoes From China Wholesale . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. Cheap Adidas Shoes Online . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. http://www.cheapadidas.us/ . First off, the fans ripped the Cubbies introduction of a fuzzy new kid-friendly mascot named "Clark". SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah has three players that hail from the state of Michigan and the trio made all the difference against UC Riverside.We just have a little grit to ourselves and we always try and play hard. We get after it, Kyle Kuzma (Flint, Michigan) said.Lorenzo Bonam (Inkster, Michigan) scored a career-high 21 points and Kuzma added 18 to help Utah run past the Highlanders 85-67 on Friday night.Even freshman wing Devon Daniels (Battle Creek, Michigan) got into the act with 14 points and 11 rebounds and sneaked a dig on Kuzma during the post-game press conference.Yep, me and `Zo are pretty tough but I dont know about Koozy, Daniels said with a laugh.Freshman center Jayce Johnson scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Utes, who had a 32-point advantage in points scored in the paint.Chance Murray had 17 points and backcourt mate Dikymbe Martin added 15 for the Highlanders (1-3), who were tied with the Utes at 21 midway through the first half. The Highlanders converted 10 of their 21 3-point attempts.Our guards played incredible but Utahs length just really bothered us at the rim, UCR coach Dennis Cutts said.JoJo Zamora hit a 3-pointer to start an 11-0 run that ended shortly before halftime -- the Highlanders struggled to find the lanes that had been available earlier in the game while the Utes started following any misses with putbacks.We just got stops, that was the biggest thing, Kuzma said. Because then we can run and score in transition. That was our mindset for the rest of the game.Utah (4-0) used a 10-0 run that bridged the halves to extend its advantage to 54-34 and coasted from there. To cap the surge, Daniels took a pass from Parker Van Dyke and made a layup with 17:08 to play.Thats how I play. I just attack my opponent . I go hard tto the rim, Daniels said.

Despite the lopsided results, he said his players are a confident bunch and are learning game by game.Utah: After the Utes won their first three games by an average of 43 points, the Highlanders provided more resistance and presented a bit more size. With just two returners with significant experience -- Kuzma and Bonam -- the Utes scheduled to avoid any heavyweights before facing Butler next Monday. Thats when Utah will test just how well its young team has gelled.STAT OF THE NIGHTThe Utes dominated the rebounding tally 49-32, including 17 offensive boards. Bonam had a career-best 10 rebounds.REFERENCE POINTTwo years ago, the Highlanders lost to Utah 88-42. We use this game as a reference point of how hard to play and how to play the right way. Well refer to this all year long, Cutts said.Murray added, We came with the right mindset and we played hard. Wed like to have played a bit better but I like the direction were headed.UP NEXTUC Riverside continues its road-heavy start to the season with a trip to UCLA on Wednesday.Utah will host Butler on Monday, essentially the Utes first formidable opponent of the season. The Bulldogs have won their first six games, including a 69-65 win over No. 8 Arizona on a neutral court Friday night. ' ' '
