TRENTON — A New Jersey judge ruled Monday that Gov. Christie violated public workers' contractual rights when he cut the state's payment to their pension system in June, and ordered him to work with the Legislature to find a solution. "The court cannot allow the state to simply turn its back on its obligations to New Jersey's public employees," Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson wrote in her 130-page decision. The ruling came a day before Christie, a Republican considering running for president in 2016, was to deliver his annual budget address to the Legislature.

CONCORD, N.H. - Leo Ouellette, a retired mailman from New Hampshire, is a fan of Gov. Christie's brash personality. But that does not necessarily mean he'll vote for Christie in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary. While Ouellette, 72, likes Christie - "I don't want a wimp," he said Monday, a cup of coffee in front of him, at the Windmill Restaurant in Concord - he also likes Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. "I'm wide open," Ouellette said. So, too, is the field of prospective Republican presidential candidates, as viewed by voters, elected officials, and strategists in the state.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - James Franklin scrolled through his Twitter feed. Between swift swipes of his finger, the Penn State coach looked up to watch ESPN's national signing day coverage on a large flat-screen TV. He peered back down through his glasses and surveyed the thick binder in front of him. On his second signing day in Happy Valley, Franklin spent the morning inside the "war room," an upstairs space in the Lasch Football Building on the university's...

The Eagles have hired Boston College offensive coordinator Ryan Day to be their quarterbacks coach. Day was also Boston College's quarterbacks coach for the last two seasons. He previously coached B.C.'s wide receivers from 2007 to '11. In between, he was Temple's offensive coordinator for a season before following former Owls coach Steve Addazio to Boston. Day, 35, has close ties to Eagles coach Chip Kelly. He got his coaching start at New Hampshire, where he was the tight ends coach alongside offensive coordinator Kelly in 2002.

LeSEAN McCOY said after Sunday's loss to Seattle that he might have played his worst game as an Eagle, and that he'd had trouble focusing. Later it emerged that McCoy had lost a cousin in a Friday auto accident death in Philadelphia. Yesterday, McCoy met with reporters for the first time since that game, in which he was held to 50 yards on 17 carries. "I feel better," McCoy said, as the Eagles prepared for Sunday's rematch with the Dallas Cowboys. "Had some time to just think and be with my family.

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.
