That's three in a row for Linebacker U.

The 6-foot-3, 239-pound Connor, a graduate of Strath Haven High in Delaware County, beat out LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey and Ohio State linebacker James Laurinaitis.

Notre Dame has settled on Brian Kelly as the man who can restore its faded glory, just as he turned Cincinnati into a national title contender. Just 10 days after Charlie Weis was fired, it's up to Kelly to revive the fortunes of a team that just completed the worst decade of football in the history of the storied program with a 70-52 record and three losing seasons. Kelly got a 5-year deal from Notre Dame and will be introduced as coach this afternoon in South Bend, Ind. Irish athletic director Jack Swarbrick confirmed the hiring in a statement.

BETHLEHEM – NFL teams give starting jobs to undrafted rookies about as often as Ryan Howard gets wood on a low-and-outside breaking ball. But last year, the Eagles gift-wrapped their punting job and handed it to Chas Henry the day he signed with the team. They let their old punter, 37-year-old free agent Sav Rocca, walk, signed Henry and informed him that unless he got caught running naked across the Lehigh campus or made remarks about Joe Banner's height, he would be the team's season-opening punter.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - For all of the big names the Eagles have brought in, there's a good chance a critical moment in their season will come down to the play of a fourth-round rookie. Alex Henery, taken in April's draft, is the only kicker in Eagles training camp and is poised to assume all the pressure that comes with booting key field goals for a team with Super Bowl ambitions. Holding for Henery likely will be another rookie, punter Chas Henry, signed as an undrafted free agent after winning the Ray Guy Award as college football's top punter last year.

THE EAGLES opened the preseason last night, and for the first time in 12 years, David Akers wasn't their kicker, and for the first time in 5 years, Sav Rocca wasn't their punter. Akers and Rocca were two of the 13 unrestricted free agents to whom the Eagles waved bye-bye when the lockout ended last month. Whether that's going to turn out to be a wise move or a dumb one in The Year Of All-In, only time will tell. Almost as interesting as the decision to let both of their veteran legs walk is whom the Eagles have brought in to replace them.
