WOODSTOCK, Ga. - Basking in the Georgia sun and the adoration of a hometown crowd, Newt Gingrich explained to a rally of supporters Thursday that President Obama is raising gas prices, appeasing Muslim enemies, and waging war on the Catholic Church. Moments before that, the Republican presidential candidate said basically the same thing - but the audience may have been more significant. He was a guest on a conservative radio show hosted by his former campaign rival Herman Cain.

The Eagles claimed tackle D.J. Jones off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens, the team said Tuesday. The Eagles also named Keith Gray assistant strength and conditioning coach to replace Roger Marandino, who became the head strength and conditioning coach with the Indianapolis Colts. Jones, listed as 6-foot-5, 315 pounds, was an undrafted free agent who spent the first six weeks of last season on the Dolphins practice squad. He spent most of the rest of the season on Baltimore's practice squad and moved to the active roster in the final week of the season.

It is a scary combination for opponents. A balanced team with weapons inside and out, Drexel can beat you in many ways on offense. And, defensively, the lock-down Dragons boast not just the stingiest unit in the Colonial Athletic Association but one of the best defenses in the country. Drexel put it all on display on Wednesday night at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, impressively brushing aside Georgia State, 68-46, to win its eighth straight game and 12th in a row at home, including all nine this season.

Aharon Wasserman was frustrated by the sheaves of papers he received every night. As deputy field director in the Georgia office of Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, the Cumberland County, N.J., native's job was to collate daily canvassing reports, crunching data on issues such as who got registered and who was likely to vote. One evening, the 21-year-old Rutgers University junior, who had taken a leave to join the campaign, grabbed another young staff member, Justin Lewis, "who wasn't so good at knocking on doors, but was pretty good at programming," Wasserman recalled recently.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 13 years to a good guy who is a great dad. We have two boys, ages 9 and 11. The problem is, we don't communicate. We hardly have sex and we don't get along at all. I feel like I have sacrificed physical and emotional intimacy so my kids can have both parents in their lives full time. When I think of writing down my husband's attributes, all I can think of is that he's a good dad, good worker and helps out around the house. But I have no problem coming up with a list of bad things.

ATLANTA - Tyrann Mathieu returned a punt 62 yards for a touchdown and set up two other scores with a fumble recovery and another dazzling return to lead No. 1 Louisiana State to a 42-10 rout of No. 12 Georgia in Saturday's Southeastern Conference championship game. LSU (13-0) advanced to a spot in the BCS title game in New Orleans, just 75 miles from its Baton Rouge campus. The Tigers' opponent will be announced Sunday night, but SEC West rival and No. 2 Alabama - already beaten by the Tigers, 9-6, in overtime a month ago - had the inside track.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli thought the biggest step his young team took came during halftime. That's when the Hawks aired out their first-half problems and came up with plans to fix it once play resumed. The result? A satisfying, 66-53 victory over Georgia Tech at the Charleston Classic last night. Carl Jones scored 21 points, Langston Galloway had all 15 of his points in the second half and Hofstra transfer Halil Kanacevic posted a double-double to lift the Hawks (2-0)
