High school football will return next school year to Sayreville, the North Jersey town rocked by a hazing scandal that led to the cancellation of the last season after just three games. The announcement was made Tuesday night during a Board of Education meeting. "I commend the board and the community for their continued unwavering support," Superintendent Richard Labbe said in a statement released Wednesday by the crisis management firm handling communications for the school district.

Back to square one. That's how it feels for 13-year-old Caroline Pla of Doylestown. Pla received national attention two years ago after petitioning Archbishop Charles J. Chaput to allow girls to play football in Philadelphia's Catholic Youth Organization league. Chaput eventually agreed, opening the door for anyone to play, while cautioning that the decision was provisional. Turns out that provision has expired. So Pla once again is asking the archdiocese to reconsider its banning girls from the gridiron.

JEFFREY LURIE changed his mind about Howie Roseman continuing as the Eagles' general manager, 5 days after laughing off the idea. This happened either because (a) Lurie was, as he indicated in a statement released yesterday evening, swept away by a "fully integrated," "all-encompassing vision" of his front office, that emerged from meetings this week with team president Don Smolenski, coach Chip Kelly and Roseman, or (b) because team chairman Lurie was terrified Kelly might leave if he didn't get full control of personnel and the draft.

AKRON, Ohio - As Temple nears a decision on an on-campus football stadium, it might want to look toward this tired industrial city 350 miles to the west, where the University of Akron struggles to fill and pay for one that debuted five years ago. Akron, like Temple, is a large urban university transitioning from commuter-school roots. In 2009, to jump-start a long-stagnant football program and an apathetic fan base, it opened a 27,000-seat facility near the heart of its 222-acre downtown campus.

SO THE moment that college football junkies have been clamoring for, for way too long, finally is coming to a television screen near you: tomorrow's inaugural FBS playoff semifinals. Can there really be a much better way to ring in another year, especially now that the Eagles won't be playing any games that counts for 9 months? It almost reminds you of the old days, when Jan. 1 meant 12 straight hours of matchups that mostly meant everything. Of course, the next 2 years the semis are on Dec. 31, but you get the concept.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Elizabeth Morgan wasn't looking forward to the task in front of her. The veterinarian with close-cropped reddish-brown hair had always been more comfortable playing with the animals on her central Pennsylvania farm. But there she stood one day last month, before a couple of hundred people, cameras and a microphone in her face, determined to tell Pennsylvania State University's trustees exactly what she thought of them and their handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

ARLINGTON, Texas - It's not as if the Dallas Cowboys have never had company from an A-list celebrity. Divas from Joey Heatherton to Carrie Underwood received all kinds of notoriety from their associations with "America's Team. " The latest nationally known fan to draw attention with an affinity to the Cowboys is Gov. Christie, who was in attendance for Dallas' 42-7 win Sunday against the Colts, much to the delight of owner Jerry Jones. "Frankly, he has the makings of a top football coach," Jones said.
