The Rowan football offense has become so good, it may have become a victim of its own success. Which is just fine with the Profs. During Saturday's 43-13 win over Western Connecticut in a second-round NCAA Division III playoff game, the Profs held a 26-0 halftime lead despite not looking overly impressive in the eyes of some observers. An unfair assessment? "Yeah, it is," coach K.C. Keeler said. "But even so, we were frustrated and it's something we really have to try and guard against.

At the beginning of the Division III national soccer tournament, Glassboro State College was considered a long shot at best. The Profs had been decimated by injuries and entered the tournament ranked 16th nationally in the Division III coaches poll. Glassboro closed out the regular season by dropping a 2-0 decision to 1989 national champion Elizabethtown, and most observers felt that the Blue Jays were a prohibitive choice to repeat. The Profs, however, picked the best time of the season to play their best soccer.

Adrian Matthew got his first start at Rowan, Keith Wood came off the bench for the first time this season, and both made a difference in the Profs' 85-58 victory over visiting Trenton State last night in a New Jersey Athletic Conference game. Rowan remained undefeated this season as Matthew, a junior transfer from Millersville, collected 19 points and six rebounds. Wood, Rowan's leading scorer at 21.5 points per game, added a game-high 23 points. According to Rowan coach John Giannini, Wood didn't start the game because he had missed practice, and Matthew got the call because Giannini went with a three-guard lineup.

It took about an hour for Rowan to render the second half completely unnecessary while putting an end to some talk that it also felt was unnecessary. The top-seeded Profs rolled to a 42-0 halftime lead en route to a 56-7 victory over previously unbeaten Delaware Valley in yesterday's NCAA Division III playoff quarterfinal game. In breaking the 1999 school record of 55 points in a playoff game (against Ursinus), Rowan earned its ninth trip to the national semifinals. The Profs did it without leading rusher Pat Thompson, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last week.

Some of Cheyney University's 145 faculty members face dismissal as a result of economic findings in the just-completed review of the institution's academic status, university president LeVerne McCummings said today. McCummings noted that a report issued yesterday by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges, although continuing Cheyney's accreditation through October 1988, still mentioned several "concerns," one of which was a budget deficit. McCummings said the university's faculty-student ratio now stands at 1-11 although state regulations require only a 1-19 ratio.

When Taman Bryant is introduced as the starting wide receiver for Rowan University in tomorrow's Division III national championship in Salem, Va., the 6-foot-2, 225-pound junior will be greeted with a warm and thunderous ovation. Probably more so than any of his teammates. Not because he's more popular than his fellow players, or more productive either, although he does lead the team with 1,135 receiving yards. It's just that he'll have quite an entourage that will be making the trip to see his Profs (10-2)

Temple University's faculty union, frustrated over what members term "difficult" contract talks, could vote this week to authorize a strike. Members of Temple's branch of the American Association of University Professors - representing about 1,100 faculty, librarians and other professional staff members - have been without a contract since June 30, when the previous two-year pact had expired. A membership meeting is scheduled for Thursday and a strike-authorization vote, while not on the agenda, "may come up," Temple AAUP president Phil Yannella said yesterday.

Rowan (10-2) and Buffalo State (9-2) won't need any introductions when they meet at noon tomorrow in Glassboro, N.J., in an NCAA Division III quarterfinal. Rowan defeated Buffalo State, 28-21, on Oct. 10. Lifetime, the Profs are 5-0 vs. the Bengals. The Profs advanced in the playoffs by beating College of New Jersey, 26-2, in the first round. Buffalo State outlasted Springfield (Mass.), 38-35. "It's difficult to beat a good team twice [in one season]," Rowan coach K.C. Keeler said.

Rowan was anything but the Beast of the East yesterday, as powerful Linfield turned the Profs inside out in a stunning 52-0 mismatch in the NCAA Division III football semifinals. The Profs (10-3), plagued by turnovers and dropped passes, were limited to 198 yards of offense while attempting to reach the national championship game for the sixth time. Instead, Linfield (12-0), the West Region champion and No. 2 in the coaches' poll, is headed for the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, where the talented and impressive Wildcats will play Mary Hardin-Baylor of Texas for the championship Saturday in Salem, Va. "We played a tremendous football team in all three phases of the game: offense, defense and special teams," Rowan coach Jay Accorsi said.

Robert Regan, 86, of Philadelphia, a retired University of Pennsylvania English professor whose affinity for literature about the struggles of American life was rooted in his own challenging childhood, died of heart failure Tuesday, July 5, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Regan, an expert in the works of such consequential authors as Mark Twain and Flannery O'Connor, found solace in his school studies as a boy growing up in poverty in Shreveport, La. The son of a single parent, he helped his mother operate a country store sandwiched between poor black and white neighborhoods.

Joyce Xi doesn't want to see another family go through what hers has endured. That's why the daughter of the Temple University professor who was accused of spying for China, in charges that were then dropped, is demanding an apology from President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch to her father and other Asian Americans wrongly charged. "I think it's important to have a public effort highlighting these injustices that my dad and others have faced, and also to be able to hold the government accountable," said Xi, 23, who graduated from Yale University on Monday with a degree in chemistry.

Rafael Robb, a former University of Pennsylvania professor imprisoned for killing his wife in 2006, has been denied early release by the state parole board, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office announced Monday. The board's decision means Robb will serve his full 10-year sentence for the death of Ellen Gregory Robb. But her family is still concerned about the fact that Robb will be free in January, at the end of his sentence. "Our goal is clearly to make sure that his probation terms are of the strictest and tightest that they should be for a violent offender of this nature," Gary Gregory, Ellen Robb's brother, said at a news conference Monday.

Some of Joe Cassidy's best memories as a college basketball coach are captured from the same angle: Off to the side and slightly in the background. There's Rowan coach John Giannini and the Profs celebrating the program's only national title in 1996. Cassidy is there, an assistant coach reveling in the moment. There's Giannini and the Profs making the NCAA Division III Final Four in 1993 and 1995, taking the program to unprecedented heights in advance of that breakthrough in 1996.

An olive-complexioned, curly-haired University of Pennsylvania economics professor was deeply focused while scribbling an algebraic equation Thursday night, waiting aboard an American Airlines flight scheduled to take off from Philadelphia to Syracuse, N.Y. He didn't have time to talk to the passenger next to him - a blond-haired woman wearing flip-flops who appeared to be in her 30s. His behavior, his looks, and the little that he said to...

Drexel professor André M. Carrington has been a longtime devotee of comic books, science fiction, and everything dorky. His first book, Speculative Blackness: The Future of Race in Science Fiction , is a thoughtful analysis of the genre's attempts to grapple with ethnicity. In it he ranges over delightfully vast tracts of fiction, from the Marvel comics empire to the fantasy world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the representations of black women from the British imperial diaspora.

Here in the U.S., a product developer is politely shooed out the door by a major video game company after proposing a game that helps people recover from a stroke or deal with their cerebral palsy, said health games innovator Pam Kato. In Britain, by contrast, "Serious Games" is a category now being pursued by hospitals and universities, funded with national health grants, earning positive publicity and wide software distribution. "When I saw that Coventry University even had a building named Serious Health Institute, I knew I was home," said the U.S.-born Kato, who now directs that institute.

The Temple physics professor whose life was turned upside down when the U.S. government filed and later withdrew espionage charges against him has been notified that the government will not refile the charges. "The U.S. Attorney's Office has notified Professor [Xiaoxing] Xi's defense team that there will be no new charges and that the government will return his seized property," said Michael A. Schwartz, one of Xi's lawyers. Whether the government might recharge Xi had been an open question since September, when prosecutors withdrew the existing charges "without prejudice," meaning that they could be revived.

When Temple University said it wanted to hire her, Sara Goldrick-Rab asked: "Are you sure you know who I am? Use Google. Read Twitter. Come back and talk to me. " Temple officials had already done that. They knew that the 39-year-old educational policy studies and sociology professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison had gained a national reputation as a social media firebrand. She had called Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker a "fascist" on Twitter for wanting to weaken tenure protections.
