ARLINGTON, Texas - Nothing like putting out a juicy oh-by-the-way rumor before the biggest college basketball game of the season. But former Kentucky star Rex Chapman tweeted before Monday night's national title game that Kentucky Coach John Calipari will be the next coach of the Lakers. Chapman doesn't site any sources or offer any timetable. Calipari said this week he was probably going to need his hip replaced shortly after Monday night's title game between Kentucky and Connecticut.

Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez will be forever linked. In our memories, anyway. The New York Jets finally parted ways with their embattled former starting quarterback this month, and now the team's coach is talking about altering the tattoo on his arm that currently features a woman wearing Sanchez's No. 6 jersey. Surely, that design seemed like a great idea at the time. Well, maybe not. But it's even sillier now. A reporter asked Ryan about the ink Tuesday, and the coach seemed to decide its fate right there on the spot.

Photographer Catherine Lacey Dodd writes in an email: "I grew up in the UK and rain [is] a part of everyday life, so when the drought came to an abrupt end in SoCal, I knew I not only needed to mark it in some way, but also to enjoy the experience and its sensory pleasures. My son donned his seldom worn rainboots and umbrella and we ran out into the neighborhood streets for this shoot, splashing in the puddles, capturing the motion of the water and sheltering under the umbrella.

Black Monday won't darken the skies over Rex Ryan. The New York Jets coach is staying. Jets owner Woody Johnson announced as much Sunday after his team's 20-7 victory over Miami. “We're going to keep Rex Ryan, and he's going to be our coach next year,” Johnson told reporters after the game. “I couldn't be any prouder of this team.” Ryan, dogged all season by rumors he would be fired, coached his team to an 8-8 record with up-and-down rookie Geno Smith at quarterback.

Rex Ryan was on the short list of short-timers. He was doomed. His New York Jets were coming off a 6-10 season, had a new general manager — one who didn't hire Ryan as coach — had traded their best defensive player in cornerback Darrelle Revis and had a mess of a quarterback situation. The clock was ticking on Ryan, and few people would have been shocked had he lost his job within the first month of the season. This was a team that should have won maybe four games. After seven games, Ryan is at least in the early conversation for coach of the year.

British actor-singer Noel Harrison, best known for his recording of the Oscar-winning ballad "The Windmills of Your Mind" and as secret agent Mark Slate in NBC's 1960s TV series "The Girl from U.N.C.L.E," died Saturday night at the age of 79.
