On Tuesday, Temple interim head coach Ed Foley took to the podium in Shreveport ahead of his team’s coming battle against Duke in the Independence Bowl.
He got pretty fired up. Even some of the media members couldn’t help but chuckle at his emotional, passionate speech.

This display reminded many of the Saturday Night Live character made famous by the late, great Chris Farley — Matt Foley, who lived in a van down by the river.
The reactions to this speech were almost as great as the speech itself.
Don’t tell Ed Foley this is just another meaningless bowl game. https://t.co/EHuSe9l5cC
