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.

If all goes according to plan, they will graduate in May with four industry certifications and a job offer from one of the many Montgomery County companies in need of their newfound skills - NextGen, Teva Pharmaceuticals, SunGard, Unisys, etc. "If I could just get my foot in the door, I feel like I could show off my talents and work my way up," said Stuart Novey, 48, of Ambler.

The University of Pennsylvania exceeded its recent fund-raising goal by almost $1 billion, bringing in $4.3 billion in its "Making History Campaign," officials announced Thursday. Penn surpassed the $3.5 billion target, announced in 2007, 16 months before the official end of the campaign in December. That's especially noteworthy considering that the campaign was launched just before the country plunged into recession. The university has used the money to increase financial aid, support research and interdisciplinary programming, and boost its endowment.

Enrollment at Community College of Philadelphia fell 4 percent last fall, and officials suspect tightened eligibility guidelines for federal financial aid are to blame in part. Full-time student enrollment on its own took an even bigger hit, dropping 8.3 percent, from 5,540 in fall 2011 to 5,076 last fall. Throughout the region, other community colleges also report dips or flat enrollment, and note that students who in the past would have received aid, known as Pell grants, are going without.

SCOTT HARTNELL doesn't need to be on the ice to win. The Flyers forward recently defeated former Flyer James van Riemsdyk - now with the Maple Leafs - in a contest to see who could raise the most money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The Power of 2 charity set up the wager in which the duo went head-to-head online. Hartnell raised $22,000 for the Empire State Relief fund, $4,000 more than JVR pulled in for Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. Because he "lost," JVR will go Christmas shopping for Hartnell at the Mall of America in Minneapolis on Wednesday.
