Drexel tried and tried, but the Dragons couldn't make it all the way back yesterday and dropped a 75-72 decision to New Hampshire. After winning its first-ever North Atlantic Conference game on Monday over Maine, Drexel (4-9 overall, 1-1 league) came out of the blocks slowly against New Hampshire (4-9, 3-1). "Coming in, we knew it was going to be difficult," Drexel coach Bill Herrion said. "We knew we would have to play very well to win. I was a little disappointed with the way we started.

Five fumble recoveries and a big day for Delaware all-America safety Warren McIntire helped the Blue Hens roll over New Hampshire, 44-22, yesterday in a Yankee Conference game. The fumble recoveries were a big part of Delaware's 28-0 first-half lead, which helped erase the sting of last week's 21-20 non-conference loss to West Chester. Defensively, McIntire recovered two fumbles, forced another, and broke up a pass. "We played much better (than last week) in every way," said Hens coach Tubby Raymond, whose club improved to 3-1 (3-0)

Now that the permafrost portion of the presidential primary season has ended, a few observations: Yes, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts has earned the title of Democratic "front-runner. " His wins in New Hampshire and Iowa demonstrate an ability to hang tough, especially considering his campaign staff was in shambles only recently. And no, the race isn't over. Several candidates have earned further consideration by voters in larger, more diverse states. (The closest our region will come to having a meaningful say in the contest is when Delaware holds its primary Tuesday.

NASHUA, N.H. - They came into New Hampshire with the most to lose, two candidates swamped in Iowa by a wave of political change. They had little time for course corrections. So Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Mitt Romney worked hard this weekend to be seen as "change agents," a challenging task since both are candidates of the political establishment. And they sought to call into question the change credentials of their principal opponents in tomorrow's first-in-the-nation primary.

Republicans, unified and disciplined on Capitol Hill, are about to break into open warfare over the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. Despite some high-profile withdrawals in recent weeks, the prospect of facing a damaged and vulnerable President Clinton is drawing a swarm of Republicans interested in challenging him in 1996. When New Hampshire Republicans gather this evening for a dinner to start the year leading to their primary, the first in the nation, nine potential candidates for the 1996 presidential nomination will line up to court their favor.

Gov. Christie, who is openly weighing a run for president, in recent months has met with donors across the country and made multiple trips to the early presidential nominating states of New Hampshire and Iowa - officially in his role as chairman of the Republican Governors Association. But with the midterm elections over, other makings of a potential Christie campaign haven't come into focus. There is no federal political action committee raising money for the governor. A federal rule that restricts donations from the financial sector might hinder his potential donors.

It has become one of the best football rivalries in Football Championship Subdivision and when Villa visits Delaware on Saturday at noon, more than just local bragging rights will be on the line. Villanova is 9-2 with a 6-1 record in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Wildcats are ranked No. 6 in the nation by The Sports Network and in the FCS Coaches' Poll. A win over Delaware (6-5, 4-3) would almost assuredly earn Villanova a coveted bye in the first round of the 24-team FCS playoff field, which will be announced Sunday.

WHATEVER happens tomorrow at Delaware, Villanova will be in the FCS playoffs. If they win, the Wildcats are going there on their own terms. If not, they'd only be making things a lot more difficult on themselves. In 2009, they got to play three home games en route to the national-title game. They might not have won the semifinal had it been at William & Mary. In 2010, they had to go on the road, where they won twice against the top-ranked team before finally losing a close one at eventual champion Eastern Washington, which was also No. 1. So there is a difference.

Chip Kelly looked around at a Mission Viejo High School practice 10 years ago and saw coaches from Southern Cal, Stanford, and Texas. Kelly was the offensive coordinator at New Hampshire, recruiting a different caliber of prospect. They were all watching the No. 1 high school quarterback in the country: Mark Sanchez. "I just thought, that kid is a really good player," Kelly said. "I wasn't talking to him that day, I'll tell you that. " Kelly signed Sanchez's backup, R.J. Toman, and made other trips to the school while recruiting in California.

Villanova's ability to win in Virginia will go a long way toward determining if the Wildcats will win at least a share of the Colonial Athletic Association football title. The Wildcats are 7-1 overall and 4-0 in the CAA heading into the game Saturday at Richmond. The only other team unbeaten in CAA action is New Hampshire, which will not play Villanova this season. As for playing in Virginia, the Wildcats had their toughest Football Championship Subdivision test this season when they won, 35-31, at William and Mary on Oct. 18. Villanova expects an equally tough game against Richmond (6-2, 3-1)

YOU DIDN'T need a Ph.D in schedule-ology to know back in August the two games most likely to define Villanova's CAA season were bunched within 2 weeks of each other and would take place in Virginia. The first has arrived. Tomorrow afternoon the Wildcats (5-1, 3-0) - who moved up a spot to fifth in the FCS rankings - will be at No. 15 William & Mary (4-2, 1-1). On Nov. 1 they will travel to No. 19 Richmond (4-2, 1-1), following their homecoming against Morgan State (3-3). If the Wildcats want to put themselves in postion to have a good playoff run, which means not going on the road for as long as possible, this is where you begin to really make that convincing closing statement.

VILLANOVA, the seventh-ranked team in FCS, was a missed short field goal away from winning its opener at FBS Syracuse. Two weeks ago, the Wildcats beat then-No. 11 Fordham by 44 at home. So what now? Following a rare early bye, the Wildcats will have a rare early matchup against visiting James Madison (2-1) in the first CAA game for both. Coach Andy Talley has been around long enough to know that in-conference is where his squad will define itself this regular season. "Traditionally, JMU is the most athletic team in the CAA," Talley said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The Eagles and Patriots moved their joint practice from 2 p.m. to 9 a.m. Wednesday to avoid thunder and lightning, but they still practiced in heavy rain. It was closed to fans because of the weather. Otherwise, it was simply a wetter version of a typical practice. "Put some galoshes on and go play," coach Chip Kelly said. The teams had a contingency to use the Patriots' indoor facility. With about 180 combined players and two full coaching staffs, they preferred to remain outside.
