THE WAY David M. Jacobs sees it, aliens from outer space have been kidnapping humans for aeons and sexually molesting them to create human-alien hybrids that walk among us today undetected and will soon take over Earth. He knows that sounds crazy. But he long ago quit caring what people think of him. As director of the International Center for Abduction Research, Jacobs, 71, has made it his life's mission to investigate claims of extraterrestrial abduction. "What I'm doing will either be an interesting but nonessential footnote to popular culture or the most important thing that's ever happened to humankind.

Downingtown's Bryn Boggs, an Inquirer first-team all-area football selection this past season, has made an oral commitment to Wisconsin. Although Boggs, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back/defensive back, rushed for more than 1,000 yards this past season and 2,773 in his career, Badgers coach Barry Alvarez plans to use him as a cornerback, Downingtown coach John Barr said. Boggs, who helped lead the Whippets to the Class AAAA state championship game this past season, also made visits to Clemson, West Virginia and Georgia Tech before deciding Monday on Wisconsin.

Woodbury fullback/linebacker Chris Pressley has made an oral commitment to attend Wisconsin, Woodbury coach Zack Valentine said. "He felt comfortable with his visit and with the academics," Valentine said. Pressley, a bruising 6-foot-1, 258-pound senior who rushed for 1,590 yards last fall and was a second-team all-South Jersey selection, carries a 94 average in class and plans to major in business law, Valentine said. Pressley, who was recruited as a running back, is built like Overbrook High graduate Ron Dayne, who went to Wisconsin and won the Heisman Trophy in 1999 and is now with the New York Giants.

Jerry Butler, a lightning-quick running back from George Washington High, needed only one official recruiting visit to make up his mind. Butler, clocked at 4.19 seconds in the 40-yard dash, has made an oral commitment to play football for the University of Wisconsin. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior visited the school over the weekend and committed to Badgers coach Barry Alvarez before returning home Sunday. Football recruits cannot sign binding national letters of intent until Feb. 2. "It just felt like I really fit in there," Butler said.

Penn and Wisconsin had waged the battle of the afternoon in the final race of the day at the 87th annual Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships on Onondaga Lake yesterday, but as the crews of the varsity eights collapsed in their shells, no one was certain who had won. "It was five strokes (remaining) at the most when we pulled even," said Andrew Goldberg, the coxswain in Penn's boat. "I didn't know who won. I really didn't know. Wisconsin didn't know either. " As it turned out, the Quakers' dramatic charge had given them a victory by two-tenths of a second, as they finished in 5:56.

PASADENA, Calif. - Although Stanford didn't score many style points in the 99th Rose Bowl, the Cardinal could celebrate because it didn't let Wisconsin score any points at all after halftime. Kelsey Young and Stepfan Taylor ran for first-quarter touchdowns, Kevin Hogan passed for 123 yards, and No. 8 Stanford won its first Rose Bowl since 1972, beating the Badgers, 20-14, on Tuesday night. Jordan Williamson kicked two field goals for Stanford, including a 47-yarder that gave the Cardinal a 17-7 second-quarter lead.

BOSTON - Just off the TD Garden court, Scoop Jardine put his head against his father, both rubbing the back of the other's head, smiling and loving the moment. "I really want to cry, but I'm going to hold it in," the Syracuse point guard told his father, Tony. Jardine had just experienced what had to be the biggest victory of his collegiate career, and by a razor's edge avoided it being the last game of his career. The Orange are into the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time in nine years because they forced a tough last shot out of a hot team, getting past Wisconsin, 64-63, in a thriller that saw the losers make 14 three-pointers, including six in a row in the second half.

Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis yesterday regained the upper hand in the tight Democratic race with a solid win over Jesse Jackson in the Wisconsin primary. Sens. Albert Gore Jr. of Tennessee and Paul Simon of Illinois trailed far behind, and the results further weakened their candidacies. Gore, after a strong showing in the Super Tuesday voting last month, failed again to win outside the border states, nor did he reach the threshold for continued matching federal funds.

At his weekly meeting with members of the media yesterday, Temple football coach Bobby Wallace pointed out a couple of positives to take from the Owls' 63-16 loss at No. 20 Arizona State on Thursday. It was the first game of the season for both teams. "The score looks horrible, and I'm embarrassed about it, but not about how we played at times," Wallace said. "It's not like they toyed with us or manhandled us. We're playing a top 20 football team at their place, and I think for a quarter and a half, we played well.

STATE COLLEGE - Bill O'Brien made sure his players knew Penn State was a 24-point underdog against Wisconsin on Saturday. That was enough inspiration. The Nittany Lions went to Camp Randall Stadium and handed the previously 15th-ranked Badgers a 31-24 loss. "I can tell you flat out that they took offense to the fact they were 24-point underdogs and that nobody, even in State College, thought they could win that game - except the kids in that locker room, and the coaches in that locker room," said O'Brien, who finished his second season in Happy Valley with a 7-5 record (4-4 in conference)

MADISON, Wis. - Five days before Penn State came into Camp Randall Stadium for Saturday's final game of the season against 14th-ranked Wisconsin, Bill O'Brien decided he would challenge his players by telling them what the bettors in Las Vegas felt about them. The Badgers were favored by 24 points, and, frankly, O'Brien's players were offended. "We didn't realize how much it was," linebacker Mike Hull said after the 31-24 upset victory. "We were pretty pissed off about it. I think it gave us an extra edge.

STATE COLLEGE - It's cold, it's the Big Ten, it's November. And behind its usual, bulky offensive line, Wisconsin has run its way to the BCS doorstep. The 15th-ranked Badgers are eighth in the nation, with 297.8 rushing yards per game, and have two running backs averaging better than 100 yards per contest in Melvin Gordon and James White. And at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow at Camp Randall Stadium - in Penn State's final contest of the 2013 season - Bill O'Brien's team is tasked with slowing them down.

A SECOND complaint has been lodged against the Wisconsin-Green Bay men's basketball coach Brian Wardle , this one alleging verbal abuse and bullying. Gina Cougill , the mother of senior forward Brennan Cougill , wrote to university chancellor Thomas Harden last week, shortly after the parents of former center Ryan Bross filed the initial complaint against Wardle. Gina Cougill provided a copy of her letter to the Green Bay Press-Gazette . In it, she accused Wardle of minimizing her son's clinical depression as a "distraction," and said other players have been subjected to worse treatment.

It turns out there is someone who can tone down the taunting and irreverent antics Marshall Henderson is becoming known for. His name is Marshall Henderson. Mississippi's flamboyant guard missed 12 of his first 13 shots and was 0-for-6 from three-point range Friday when he finally connected for a long three-pointer in a second-round NCAA game against fifth-seeded Wisconsin. Then, he remained unusually businesslike while scoring the rest of his 19 points and leading the 12th-seeded Rebels to a 57-46 victory in Kansas City.

DAYTON, Ohio - Freshman Georges Niang matched a season high with 19 points, and Iowa State, showing it can do much more than just fire away from outside the three-point line, dismantled Notre Dame, 76-58, on Friday night in the NCAA tournament in Dayton, Ohio. The 10th-seeded Cyclones (23-11) will play No. 2 seed Ohio State on Sunday. The Buckeyes advanced with a 95-70 thrashing of Iona.

WISCONSIN CAN be awfully good when it is making shots. Ohio State found that out Sunday. The 20th-ranked Badgers shot 53 percent from the field, their best performance of the season, to rout No. 13 Ohio State, 71-49, in Madison, Wis. "The guys got good looks, and they went down," Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan said. "They didn't change anything. I'd like to say we did, that we found something. " It was a dramatic turnaround offensively for Wisconsin (18-8, 9-4 Big Ten) after Thursday, when the Badgers went scoreless over the final 5 minutes in regulation and then managed just four points in overtime while losing at Minnesota.
