ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - Over the spirited protests of two South Jersey administrators, the NJSIAA's executive committee on Wednesday passed two controversial proposals aimed at ongoing scheduling issues with North Jersey football superpowers such as Don Bosco Prep and Paramus Catholic. The first proposal tweaks the power-point system for qualifying for the state tournament, giving schools an incentive to play North Jersey non-public schools by increasing the value of those games. The second proposal ensures that all nine schools in the United A and United B divisions of the new North Jersey Super Football Conference will qualify for the state tournament, regardless of their record or amount of power points.

TREGG DUERSON was right when he reacted negatively when NFL commissioner Roger Goodell compared the risk of NFL players developing the degenerative brain disease CTE to ordinary risks we all experience in life. In his self-serving annual Super Bowl press conference, Goodell said the NFL "has made great progress" in guarding against concussions. He naively added, "There are risks in life. There's risk sitting on the couch. " Duerson's father - late Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson - was one of several NFL players to have committed suicide and later diagnosed to have had CTE. Through the law firm of Corboy & Demetrio, Tregg Duerson issued a statement on Sunday that said: "Comparing the CTE risk that NFL players face with an apparently inherent risk in sitting on the couch is an insult to the men affected by CTE. "These men and their families deserve better.

SAN FRANCISCO - The third time was the charm for Marvin Harrison. The Roman Catholic High School product was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday in his third year of eligibility. The former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver had been a finalist in each of his previous two years on the ballot.

The recruiting period was a mad dash for new Rutgers coach Chris Ash. Less than two months after being hired on Dec. 7, Ash welcomed 17 recruits and two graduate transfers. Ash stayed with Ohio State as co-defensive coordinator through the Buckeyes' 44-28 Fiesta Bowl win over Notre Dame on Jan. 1. Since then it has been a maddening sprint. "This year was a very eventful process," Ash said during a news conference Wednesday afternoon. "We had a new staff and a new area. We had a blizzard to deal with.
