CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Notre Dame got everything it wanted, and the Atlantic Coast Conference got Notre Dame. The school announced Wednesday that it would join the ACC in all the conference's sports except football, though it will play five games annually against league programs and have access to its non-BCS bowl tie-ins. It's unclear exactly when the Irish will leave the Big East for its non-football sports. "I don't think there's out there a better situation than the situation we have," said the Rev. John I. Jenkins, Notre Dame's president.

Adapted from an online discussion. Question: I'm in love with a wonderful guy and thinking long-term with him. But, he is an extreme football fanatic and I'm not interested, despite efforts by both of us to get me excited about the game. I feel like the current football season has really put a strain on our relationship, sapping all the time we would normally spend together. I'm also still nursing wounds because he got offered last-minute tickets to a playoff game and canceled plans we had made months earlier in order to go. I am very, very self-conscious about coming across as a nag or a shrew.

WHEN MATT Donoghue was in middle school, he wasn't trying to become the next Jason Peters. At that point in his athletic development, he wanted to be more like Ryan Howard. Donoghue didn't even play football yet. His sport was baseball, and he played first base. But things change. At some point, baseball just wasn't getting it done for him anymore. It happens. Instead, he tried something different. At first he was a defensive lineman and tight end. As a sophomore at Garnet Valley High he switched to the offensive line.

The last time Cherry Hill East played a football game, it still was light at 5 p.m. and "Sandy" and the Jersey Shore were linked by one thing: a Bruce Springsteen song about the Fourth of July in Asbury Park. A lot has happened since Oct. 20. Late that afternoon, Cherry Hill East walked off the field after a loss at Washington Township. On Friday, the Cougars will run back on the field to face host Cherokee in a game loaded with South Jersey Group 5 playoff implications for both teams.

The first reminder we're starting a new era of college football: The national championship game won't be at the Rose Bowl or in New Orleans or Miami or any other site of the traditional big bowls. On Jan. 12, everybody will watch the action from the place Jerry Jones built, AT&T Stadium, in Arlington, Texas. Probably around midnight, a champion will be crowned, and the first year of the new four-team playoff system will be in the books. Those four teams are as far as the sport's powers (i.e., the power five conferences)

In one of the first games of Nana Gillett-Spio's first year of organized football - heck, any kind of football - the Edgewood freshman was carrying the ball when he spied a would-be tackler out of the corner of his eye. He greeted the defender with a withering forearm, flipping him into the air. Any doubts Gillett-Spio might have had about switching from one brand of football to another were smashed right there. "Now I look back at that tape and say, 'Oh my goodness. I can't believe I did that,' " said Gillett-Spio, a native of England who is now a senior at Overbrook.

Defense comes naturally to Nnamdi Njoku. He knows to keep it simple: Tackle the guy with the football. "He's nearly impossible to block," Florence coach Joe Frappolli said of Njoku, a 6-1, 210-pound defensive dervish who lines up in a varsity of positions - end, tackle, inside linebacker, outside linebacker - for the Flashes. Offense is another story for the senior who has played the game for just four years. "Tight end - I'm still getting used to it," Njoku said. "Not the blocking.
