Kevin DeCaesar always wanted to play football for a Division I program. He will get his chance at Temple University. A first-team all-South Jersey linebacker as a senior, DeCaesar has decided to attend Temple and try to make the Owls' roster as a preferred walk-on. "I know it's going to be a challenge," DeCaesar said. "These players are no joke. I know I'm going to have to work hard, a lot harder than I've ever worked. " DeCaesar was a three-year starter at linebacker for West Deptford.

As they flock to urban areas, members of the so-called millennial generation are discovering that they prefer to get around by public transit, biking, or walking instead of driving, according to a report promoted Wednesday at Rutgers University's Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark campuses. "It's basically just saying that transportation investment should be used to accommodate us millennials much more, because we're going to be the people using them in the future," said Rutgers-Camden freshman Samantha Buchner, 18, a member of New Jersey Public Interest Research Group, which held the campus news events.

Before Gov. Christie visited her first-grade classroom, Mary Stahl told the 6- and 7-year-olds how special the coming moment would be. "Someday, you'll remember this day, the day the governor came to your classroom," she told the eager children, who paused their counting lesson to greet Christie. If recent history is any indication, Christie may return sooner than they think. He visited Octavius V. Catto Family School earlier this year and returned Tuesday to celebrate back-to-school, and, more broadly, to juxtapose Camden's "cooperative spirit" with the situation in Newark, where students boycotted the first day of school in a city far more politically divided over changes to the school system.

Going into the U.S.- Belgium soccer game Tuesday, social-media spies sorting tens of millions of Facebook, Twitter, and other posts for SAP AG found that the American team, led by goaltender Tim Howard , was viewed more positively than negatively. Several of the Belgians attracted more social haters than lovers, especially midfielder Marouane Fellaini , even though he scored a goal for Belgium against Algeria. Are American fans less critical? No. U.S. players got negative ratings last week, when Portugal tied the team in the last minutes, says SAP's Evan Welsh . But the American starters won back fans just by surviving the "Group of Death" to advance and face Belgium, said Welsh.

SIXERS OWNER Josh Harris recently deemed his team's 19-63 season a "huge success. " A lot of fans called it "tanking. " NBA commissioner Adam Silver prefers to call it "rebuilding. " "I don't think rebuilding should be a dirty word," he said yesterday at the Associated Press Sports Editors commissioners meetings in New York. "I think it's necessary in any business. I think bad teams have to make their own strategic decisions. That's not something we're looking to legislate from the league.

Q: No matter what I do in bed, my girlfriend's never satisfied. I've tried all kinds of stuff. She just lays there looking bored afterward. Sometimes, she even reaches for a vibrator. I've tried talking with her about it, but nothing works. Before we moved in together, we couldn't keep our hands off one another. We did it a couple times a week. Now when we have sex, it's like she's doing me a favor. Then she reaches for that thing again. It's not like I'm one of those guys who just takes.

* THE NEW GIRL. 9 p.m. tomorrow, Fox 29. * POV: 56 UP. 10 tonight, WHYY12. LAMORNE Morris is tired already of the Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) romance on Fox's "New Girl. " "I think they should break up. My character [Winston] thinks so, too," said Morris, on a recent swing through Philadelphia. Because it's uncomfortable living in an apartment where two of the roommates are sleeping with each other? "It is," Morris said. "I lived in that scenario before.

"DON JON" is a love triangle for the online generation - a three-way involving a girl, a guy and his pornography. Porn we meet first, because it's the guy's first love. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who directs) plays Jon, a North Jersey ladies man who's successful at seducing women but generally finds them inferior to the virtual and infallible women of pornography. The movie's extended prologue shows Jon bedding one lovely lady after another, while his jaded voiceover tells us that these encounters leave something to be desired.

The greatest impediment to Brandon Boykin's winning a starting job at outside cornerback isn't his competition. It is that he plays in the slot significantly better than anyone else on the roster. The Eagles have not yet ruled Boykin out from starting. If defensive coordinator Bill Davis was to select the second-year corner ahead of Bradley Fletcher or Cary Williams, the likely scenario would be for Boykin to start outside and then move into the slot whenever the Eagles switched into their nickel or dime defense.
