Here's another wrinkle to Rex Ryan wearing a Chargers jersey at the Daytona 500 today: his son, Seth, just took a season-long coaching internship with Chargers coach Anthony Lynn. He'll work on both sides of the ball. Seth Ryan served as Clemson's holder last season.

Why is Rex Ryan wearing a Chargers polo at the Daytona 500 today? I'm told new Chargers coach Anthony Lynn sent it along. Free gear for Ryan to represent Lynn's team after Ryan helped bring him up with Jets and Bills.

With utility man Chris Taylor now getting some time in the outfield, one Dodgers roster spot could come down to Tayor, Charlie Culberson or Enrique Hernandez. All three are in the starting lineup Sunday against the Brewers: Hernandez in CF, Taylor at SS and Culberson at 3B.

On the complications of getting 10 starting pitchers appropriate work in spring games, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the logistical challenge will take some finesse. "I think in a perfect world, they can all pitch in an A game," Roberts said. "But sometimes they will have to pitch on a back field and that's just the way it is."

Just a reminder: Less than a year ago, someone flew a plane over Westwood with a "Fire Steve Alford" sign trailing behind it. Talk about your all time backfires.

UCLA has some absolute ballers, man. But their defense/toughness late against both Oregon and Arizona got wins. (And they can fill it up.)

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

UCLA pulled down 37 percent of its misses at Arizona. If the Bruins do that the rest of the way, any fretting about this defense may be missing the point.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer
