TRENTON A Latino leader who is an ally of Gov. Christie on Wednesday accused state Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) of playing politics and jeopardizing a bill that would allow undocumented immigrant students to pay in-state college tuition. By insisting that the bill include access to financial aid - which Christie says he will not support - Sweeney risks losing the chance to pass tuition equality legislation long awaited by the state's Latino community, said Martin Perez, president of the Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany and his brethren from the nation's four other football power conferences believe that it's time for the NCAA to restructure itself to better serve the athletic and academic needs of the larger schools. But Delany said Thursday he wouldn't prefer that the bigger conferences, including the Southeastern, the Pac-12, the Big Twelve, and the Atlantic Coast, split off from the NCAA if that doesn't happen. "I don't really go there," he said in an interview during Penn State media day. "The feeling I get is that pretty much everybody understands, the public and the media, even in the conferences, that we really do need some sort of significant reorganization . . . for what we're trying to achieve in terms of the academic-athletic balance.
