The Big East is apparently ready to make one final push to keep its embattled football league together. With the defections of Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the Atlantic Coast Conference, with TCU, who had been scheduled to join the league next season as a full member moving to the Big 12,and with Louisville apparently ready to join the Horned Frogs in moving to the Big 12, the Big East options seemed limited.
But that may change. According to sources in the Big East, the conference is looking at a plan which will invite Navy, Air Force and Boise State into the league as members in football only as well as Temple and Central Florida as members in all sports. The possibility of adding Villanova as the 12th team in football is also being discussed.

More marks could be made available for good spelling and grammar during GCSEs, the Stormont education minister has said.
Pupils may also be assessed at the end of the two-year course, as opposed to the current system of examination on a rolling basis.
The changes would help reduce bureaucracy caused by re-sitting, free up teaching time and ensure those taking the tests are more mature and ready for them.
John O’Dowd announced the consultation on the proposed changes yesterday. Similar methods were adopted in England.
He said: “I, and my department, remain committed to delivering an education system that meets the needs of all pupils in the north of Ireland. An important element of this is ensuring that public examinations are sufficiently robust and in the most suitable format.Tags: Gcses, Gcses Considered

Almost half of Northern Ireland’s integrated schools are failing to meet Department of Education criteria on the percentage of pupils they must have from both traditions.
The Belfast Telegraph has obtained new figures showing that 45% of integrated schools do not have a 30% or more intake of pupils from a minority community.
That means, of the 62 integrated schools here, 28 do not meet the department’s viability criteria on religious balance.
Some integrated schools here have less than 5% of their intake from the minority community — fewer than some state-controlled schools.
That is in stark contrast to a recent Mori poll which indicated 88% of parents in Northern Ireland would send their child to an integrated school.Tags: Integrated Schools, Pupils

A bad season turned worse this afternoon for Boston College as the Eagles went into the final minute of their game against Duke trailing by a point.
But with 41 seconds left, Nate Freese, who had missed an extra point earlier in the game, missed a 23-yard field goal attempt with 43 seconds left, which preserved a 20-19 decision for Duke.Tags: Boston College, College

ST. LOUIS — The third preseason game was a nice bounceback for the St. Louis Rams. Coach Steve Spagnuolo wants to see more like that, and plans on using starters in the final tuneup.
Scores | Standings | Stats | Roster | Schedule | Transactions | Injuries | Depth
Normally, most first-stringers play sparingly if at all in the last preseason game. Because of the lockout, the Rams have plenty to iron out before the regular season.
Even if they’re 3-0.
The Rams go for their first perfect preseason since moving to the Midwest in 1995 on Thursday night at Jacksonville. Spagnuolo’s not impressed with the record, and also wants starters to get another shot of game-day anxiety before the season opener Sept.Tags: Starters, Starters May

Welcome to the Mountain West. Now leave your jerseys at the door. Boise State’s new conference has made the following decree: the Broncos cannot wear their all-blue-on-blue uniforms during home games in conference play. Think back and recall new San Diego State coach Rocky Long’s statements back in April, when he claimed that Boise’s all-blue look — blue shirts, blue helmets, blue pants, blue field — gave it an “unfair” advantage. To Long, the monochromatic color scheme made it difficult to scout Boise in advance, since the players did not stand out on film, and it takes player at least a quarter to get used to the field. According to Long.
When he made his statement during the Mountain West’s spring conference call in April, it seemed like a throwaway: Long just nudging the new guy a bit, more or less. That it becameTags: Boise State’s, State’s

I hinted at more departures late last evening, and the first of those has already become official. Former Michigan recruit John Gibson has signed with the Kitchener Rangers.
Gibson is the second straight high-profile goaltending recruit to back out on a commitment to Michigan in as many years. Last year, the Wolverines lost highly-touted goalie Jack Campbell to the Windsor Spitfires.
That leaves the Wolverines with just fifth-year senior Shawn Hunwick returning, and nobody lined up behind him beyond that. Unless the Wolverines can find a very last-minute replacement, walk-on Adam Janecyk will likely back up Hunwick.Tags: Gibson, Gibson Next
