John Calipari agreed Tuesday to leave Memphis and the dominant program he built and take on the challenge - and riches - of returning Kentucky to glory. Calipari, 50, will receive an eight-year, $31.65 million deal plus incentives, the university said, eclipsing the $3.5 million average salary of Florida's Billy Donovan to become the highest-paid coach in college basketball. The school, which fired Billy Gillispie on Friday after two seasons, also will pay Memphis a $200,000 buyout. The Tigers offered a more lucrative package than Kentucky's to lure him to stay, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported.

A year after he complained weekly about a lack of carries, Ravens running back Jamal Lewis basically shrugged when asked about the possibility of sharing the ball Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Dividing the carries in a crowded backfield has become an increasingly hot topic for the Ravens (4-1) after Lewis continued to struggled in the 13-3 loss in Denver and his backups - Mike Anderson and Musa Smith - looked much sharper.

SAN DIEGO -- There are no more excuses. No more talk of the rain making the football too slippery to hold onto. No more chatter about a quarterback slowed so much by groin and back injuries that he can't avoid defenders swiping at the ball. No more discussion about a money jar for offenders who can't protect the ball. When the topic of turnovers is broached, the Ravens just have no explanation for why they have been one of the NFL's worst teams at securing the ball this season. It's a matter that Ravens fans are tired of debating and coach Brian Billick is tired of addressing.

Should Musa Smith and Mike Anderson get more carries for the Ravens? Yes, but for another team. Trade one of them for a decent offensive lineman and fill a big hole. Too bad trades are so rare in the NFL. Jeff Mariner Phoenix Smith and Anderson do both burst to the line with speed, going where the holes should be. Jamal Lewis' "stutter-step, bounce-outside move'" appears to be read well by defenses. But at 4-0, who's to second-guess? Jeff Novotny Annapolis

Running back Jamal Lewis' remarkable rookie season could hit another chord of high notes Sunday when the Ravens close the regular season against the New York Jets. With 1,312 yards, Lewis needs 88 more to become just the 11th rookie in NFL history to rush for 1,400. He and backup Priest Holmes (581 yards) need 107 to combine for 2,000 this season. Only Minnesota Vikings running back Robert Smith and quarterback Daunte Culpepper have combined for more (1,954). Finally, a big game could help Lewis catch the Denver Broncos' Mike Anderson in the race for Offensive Rookie of the Year.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Providing some definition to his offense yesterday, Ravens coach Brian Billick officially named Jamal Lewis his starting running back and indicated the team could wait until the draft to add a veteran quarterback. The Ravens have taken a slower-than-expected approach in finding a quarterback who could compete against Kyle Boller for the starting job. While a dozen free-agent quarterbacks have reached agreements with other teams, Billick explained that the Ravens have not engaged in serious contract negotiations for a reason.

Last year, in his first season with the Ravens, Anderson ran 39 times for 183 yards with one touchdown. This season, he is a backup to Willis McGahee. How have you managed to stay encouraged during your time with the Ravens? Just by staying positive. I've been at this thing for so long that it feels like forever. You learn to take the good with the bad and the bad with the good, and you learn to find that median. Don't get too high and don't get too low. I want to stay in the middle because that gets you through.

Although the Ravens have won their first three games for the first time in franchise history, the rushing offense hasn't provided the spark that several experts had predicted. The team's rushing average of 109 yards is ranked 16th in the NFL, and none of the team's top three running backs - Jamal Lewis, Musa Smith and Mike Anderson - has a 100-yard rushing game this season. Coach Brian Billick pointed out that the offense took to the air (43 passing plays compared to 27 running plays)

The Ravens report to training camp today with fairly high expectations for a team that went 6-10 in 2005. They think they should make the playoffs, not that they're going to shout that just yet. Enough prognosticators support the idea that it would seem to have merit, or at least, shouldn't be immediately dismissed as the blather of a losing team that tends to overrate itself. Veteran quarterback Steve McNair's arrival is, of course, the reason people are excited, and given Kyle Boller's struggles, there's little doubt the Ravens are about to fare better at the game's most important position.

DENVER -- Wasn't Denver supposed to have the No. 2-ranked offense in the NFL? Didn't the Broncos talk all week about how they wanted to atone for last season's offensive failure in the playoffs against the Ravens? Wasn't Brian Griese supposed to be Denver's new version of John Elway? The Ravens' defensive players heard about it, but they didn't believe it. As a matter of fact, it just irritated them. So as they ran onto Invesco Field yesterday, they had only one mission, and that was to destroy the Broncos' offense.
