THIS WAS March of 2014 at the NFL owners meeting in Orlando, Fla., just two weeks after the Eagles had slipped something into the drink of Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and persuaded him to hand over Darren Sproles for the bargain-basement price of a fifth-round draft pick. On that day at the Ritz-Carlton resort, Chip Kelly talked of all the wonderful ways they were going to utilize the dangerous pass-catching running back. "We've got to be smart enough as coaches to get the ball in his hands because he's a dynamic player with the football in his hands," Kelly said.

Welcome to the No-Lose Season for Jeffrey Lurie, even though some would portray 2012 as the most perilous for the Eagles' owner in the recent history of the organization. After watching the team fail to win a playoff game for three straight seasons, after betting the limit on quarterback Michael Vick, and after putting the head coach on notice that this is truly a make-or-break situation in his tenure here, Lurie certainly will be watched closely. The television cameras will peer into the luxury suites to catalog every cheer and every grimace.

The Detroit Pistons hired former 76ers and Trail Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks, the team announced Monday night. Detroit fired Lawrence Frank in April, a day after the once-proud franchise finished 29-53. Frank was 54-94 in two seasons with the Pistons. Cheeks was 284-286 in the regular season and 5-11 in the playoffs as coach of the 76ers and Portland. He was fired by Philadelphia during the 2008-09 season with a 9-14 record. Cheeks spent the last four seasons as an Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach.

Throughout those early days of 2013, when Chip Kelly was explaining himself in interview after interview as the NFL's hottest head coaching candidate, he revealed a dimension of his mind that remained rooted in conventional football thinking. At Oregon, Kelly had unleashed that revved-up offense of his, and he had everyone wondering whether he believed that the speed and simplicity of his system would allow any quarterback to orchestrate it, that his innovations were enough to overcome any quarterback's shortcomings.

Shane Battier visited the 76ers on Thursday. The team met with the former NBA player as a way to reach "out to basketball people . . . trying to grow our organization," coach Brett Brown said. Brown said the Sixers picked Battier's brain to see if there's a connection down the road. They may decide to offer him some type of role with the team. However, both sides ruled out Battier coming out of retirement to play for the Sixers. "That ship has sailed," said Battier, 37. "The playing ship has left the port.

THE SOUL re-signed quarterback Dan Raudabaugh to a 2-year contract, the Daily News has learned from a league source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Raudabaugh, the team's offensive leader the last three seasons, represents the first key player to rejoin the club. He has an extensive relationship with head coach Clint Dolezel. Dolezel was re-signed in September, also for two seasons. The Soul went a disappointing 9-9 this past season and was eliminated by Cleveland in the first-round of the playoffs.

NEWARK, N.J. - Superstar forward Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the New Jersey Devils and the sports world Thursday, retiring from the NHL to return to his native Russia. In leaving, the 30-year-old Kovalchuk walked from $77 million left on the 15-year contract that he signed with New Jersey in 2010, including guaranteed annual salaries of at least $11 million over the next four seasons. The Devils announced the stunning news Thursday afternoon, saying that the 30-year-old Kovalchuk had alerted general manager and president Lou Lamoriello earlier this year that he wanted to return home with his family after 11 seasons in the NHL. "Gentlemen, this wasn't a decision made by the New Jersey Devils," a testy Lamoriello said at the end of a conference call held less than an hour after the retirement was announced.

Staying within the family, Monsignor Bonner has promoted Greg "Bubba" Bernhardt from assistant to head football coach. Bernhardt, 34, was the team's offensive coordinator for the last five seasons. Before that, he served in the same position at Cardinal O'Hara. "Obviously, I'm extremely excited," he said. "Since I got into coaching, it's been a dream of mine to be Bonner's coach. " Bernhardt, a 1995 Bonner graduate, was a wide receiver and cornerback for the Friars' 1994 Catholic League championship team.

From time travel to movie reboots, television's preoccupation with the past continues this fall, as networks, cable channels, and streaming services turn to familiar titles, faces, and ideas. Kiefer Sutherland is back. So are Sarah Jessica Parker, Kevin James, Geena Davis, and Woody Allen. But the news isn't all old. Three of the shows I'm most excited about are dramas about an accidental president (Sutherland in Designated Survivor ), a British monarch ( The Crown )

The garage door rose Thursday morning and a new season introduced itself. The morning sky, flimsy and blue the day before, had acquired a grave heftiness overnight. The newspaper rested among the first fallen sycamore leaves scattered across the lawn. Stepping outside, I shivered. And sighed. Autumn, when the air cools, the light fades, and the earth browns, is a melancholy season. "You expected to be sad in the fall," wrote Ernest Hemingway, who understood sadness. That's certainly true when you're a fan of a going-nowhere baseball team drearily playing out its September schedule.

There will be three programs in 2016, including Nutcracker , and three in 2017, with a shorter period between programs.

PENN, the defending Ivy League co-champion, will finally begin its season Saturday afternoon at home against Lehigh. A year ago, the Quakers started 1-3 for first-year coach Ray Priore, their longtime assistant. They wouldn't lose again, which means what will mostly be remembered is beating Harvard and the title. But they did drop their first game, 41-20, at Lehigh. And that's hard for them to forget. "They tattooed us pretty good," said Priore, whose team has been picked to finish second, just behind Harvard, in the preseason media poll.

VILLANOVA finished 6-5 last season, despite losing Walter Payton Award-winning quarterback John Robertson early and most of their running backs by November. If the Wildcats had gone 7-4, they probably would have made the NCAA playoffs. The wounds were mostly self-inflected. The Wildcats had a fumble returned for a length-of-the-field touchdown against them in an 11-point September home loss to Penn. They gave up three non-offensive touchdowns in a season-ending, nine-point loss at James Madison, when they still had a chance to earn a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title.

Radko Gudas, who will miss the World Cup because of an injured right wrist, was among a handful of Flyers veterans skating at the team's practice facility in Voorhees on Monday - 12 days before they are required to be on the ice. But while Gudas said the wrist has been slow to heal - he can't shoot because of the pain - the burly defenseman is confident he will be ready when the Flyers open the season Oct. 14 in Los Angeles. Gudas, along with Flyers teammates Jake Voracek and Michal Neuvirth, had been among the players selected for Team Czech Republic, but he had to bypass the upcoming tournament because of the wrist injury.

From venerable old Franklin Field, where, it is whispered, the ghosts of Chuck Bednarik and Steve Van Buren dance at midnight. From Veterans Stadium, where, it is whispered, human sacrifices were flung from the storied 700 Level. From Lincoln Financial Field, whose current residents await a merciful end to their suffering. And still they come.

A LITTLE OVER a week ago, Cheyney won a football game for the first time in exactly four years. The Wolves broke a 43-game losing streak with an opening 21-20 overtime win at Lincoln on Sept 1. It was their first victory since Sept. 1, 2012, when they also won at Lincoln (34-21). Understandably, coach Chris Roulhac, one of the good ones, was still basking in the glow at this week's first small-college luncheon. "Friday was a good day to be on campus," he said with a big-time smile.

Maddie Elwell had her knees up, her feet perched on the passenger seat of her mother's silver Ford Fusion. Her ear buds were in so she didn't have to listen to what her mom, Denise, had on the radio - something "classical or Michael Bublé," Elwell joked. Snow covered the ground of the parking lot in Yardley, where the car idled. It was there that Elwell sat, refusing to get out for her first practice with the Yardley Makefield Soccer club in the winter of 2014. While it may not have been an auspicious beginning for the Wissahickon senior, that parking lot was the start of Elwell's becoming the player her Trojans coach, Shannon Creamer-Franke, always knew she could be. In fact, the coach - "Frankie" as the team affectionately calls her - was the reason Elwell ended up in the snowy lot in the first place.

  As lifelong Eagles fans, hope thrives despite zero Super Bowl wins and an overall title drought of 55 years. Why shouldn't it, we ask? True, there is a new rookie head coach, a new rookie quarterback, suspect talent at a few key positions, and low regard for our squad by the pundits. But it is also true that the Eagles are currently undefeated and we fans are actively engaged to help influence the outcome. We help provide one of the best home field advantages in the league.
