STATE COLLEGE - Born and raised a mere 45 minutes from the Philadelphia sports complex, Penn State defenseman Connor Varley was surrounded by Flyers fans. He wasn't one of them, though. Varley, like his dad, was raised as a New York Rangers fan. Imagine how well that went growing up. "There was definitely a little animosity," Varley said with a laugh. "And I got a few trips here and there. " Sure, he didn't live and die by the orange and black. But doesn't mean Varley won't cherish coming home this weekend.

Pennsylvania State University would require most of its employees - from janitors to professors and secretaries - to report allegations of sexual misconduct, under a recommendation from a university task force report being released Thursday. But the employees could offer to refer a victim to a mental-health counselor or certain other staffers who could keep the story confidential. The recommendation, one of 18 to emerge from the report on campus sexual assault and misconduct, would be unusual for so large a university, though it has been adopted by some smaller colleges.

George Washington High's Shareef Miller, a hard-charging defensive end with a quick first step, committed Sunday to play at Penn State while on an official visit to State College. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound senior, a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com, chose the Nittany Lions over runner-up Pittsburgh, Arizona State, Florida, Miami, Rutgers, and Temple, among others. "He wanted to stay pretty close to home," said Ron Cohen, Washington's recently retired coach. "He likes it at Penn State.

ISSUE | STATE OF UNION Steady course President Obama presented commonsense investments that will allow our economy to continue to grow ("Long division," Jan. 21). Six years into his presidency, the numbers don't lie: Our economy is booming, and unemployment is down to prerecession levels. While Obama doesn't deserve all the credit, his policies are largely working. Whether it's making college more accessible or providing more tax cuts for the middle class, his proposals will be strategic investments that can benefit not just the middle class but the broader society, and continue the momentum.

I HOPE THERE'S a wire service in the afterlife. I hope there's some celestial Internet cafe where the departed (regardless of their ultimate destinations) can access news about those of us they've left behind. For instance, I'd love it if the monsters who murdered the journalists at Charlie Hebdo could take a moment from baking in eternal hellfire to see how their acts only strengthened our resolve to speak out against intolerance. Similarly, I hope the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. can recognize, from his lofty perch in heaven atop his beloved mountain, how his awesome presence still resonates in the world.

After two years of criticism, and facing a trial that could have shone a spotlight on its internal deliberations, the NCAA on Friday agreed to restructure the sanctions on Pennsylvania State University and restore the 111 victories it stripped from Joe Paterno's record after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. The deal, approved in separate meetings by Penn State trustees and the NCAA board of governors, keeps the $60 million fine intact, but allows the university and state to spend it on child protection services in Pennsylvania.

THE LEGAL WORDS have been stacked now with such care. The news releases explaining the legal words have been massaged just so. Nowhere do they say that the NCAA, the pig, has just been slaughtered with its own knife. But that's what happened. The NCAA just wanted to be relevant again, don't you know. The big conferences run everything anymore, and the football behemoth has gone and swallowed the world, and the NCAA is left with its basketball tournament to run - a beloved tournament that, truth be told, isn't a pimple on football's ass. All of which leaves the NCAA with a continuing search to convince people it still needs to exist.

Like so many of the victories restored to his resume on Friday, the response from former Penn State players to Joe Paterno's posthumous redemption was easy to forecast. Via interviews and social media, Nittany Lions players reacted to the news about their ex-coach with relief and satisfaction. "It was only a matter of time," tweeted Mike McGloin, the Paterno-recruited quarterback now with the Oakland Raiders. "Now this [a photo of the Paterno statue school officials removed] needs to be put back.

Isiah Perkins became Williamstown High School's quarterback as a senior and learned on the fly as the orchestrator of the Braves' new no-huddle, spread offense. He became an expert in making quick decisions. Except when it comes to his college destination. "I'm keeping my options open," Perkins said Friday. A senior who has been recruited mostly as a defensive back, Perkins has offers from five colleges: Villanova, Bucknell, Marist, New Hampshire and Sacred Heart. The 6-0, 180-pound Perkins made a recruiting visit to Sacred Heart last weekend and was scheduled to travel this weekend to New Hampshire.
