For its annual Sportsman of the Year honor, Sports Illustrated simply could not choose between a pair of iconic coaches.

Therefore, both Pat Summitt and Mike Krzyzewski have been recognized by the magazine, with the University of Tennessee Women's Basketball Coach and the Duke University Men's Basketball Coach covering the latest issue of the publication:

2011 Sportswoman and Sportsman of the Year

Last month, Coach K set the all-time Division I mark for coaching victories, less than two years after leading Duke to yet another national title.

Summitt, meanwhile, put her stamp on 2011 in a more personal way: in August, she announced that she'd continue her legendary coaching career despite a diagnosis of early-onset dementia.

Krzyzewski and Summitt join John Wooden and Dean Smith as the only coaches to receive this award from Sports Illustrated. They'll be honored with a banquet in New York City tomorrow night.

News reports are confirming the rumor we told you about weeks ago. The Queen of Pop, Madonna, is going to be the halftime entertainment at the Super Bowl XLVI.

Prince, U2, Black Eyed Peas, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Who and Janet Jackson have done the honors of late.

According to a joint statement by the NFL and NBC, which will air the game, Madonna will perform with help on the field by Cirque du Soleil and Jamie King February 5.

The Madonna

The Black Eyed Peas halftime show this year was kind of bad, so Madonna takes the stage to find the bar set relatively low for such a mammoth TV spectacle.

Taking place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the title game coincides with Madge's new album release - her first effort since 2008 - around that time.

Her new single, "Give Me All Your Love" leaked recently, before being pulled by the singer's label. It generated serious buzz and generally positive reviews.

Rachel Uchitel who?!

For the first time in more than two years, Sunday marked the return of the Tiger Woods we used to talk about, with the golfer draining a birdie putt on the final hole to win and fist-pumping in his trademark red and black ensemble.

Tiger rallied to win the Chevron World Challenge with this dramatic effort:

He went 749 days and 26 tournaments without winning as he tried to repair a golf game that used to be the best in the world, as well as his formerly impeccable image following one of the most (if not the most) celebrity scandals in history.

The drought is over now. How does it feel for the 35-year-old?

"It feels great," he said. "Kind of hard for me to elaborate beyond that. I know that it's been awhile, but for some reason, it feels like it hasn't. I think I was screaming something. But it was just that I won the golf tournament. I pulled it off with one down, two to go."

The rest of the golf world had better look out in 2012.

Olympic snowboarding god Shaun White may be in some serious hot water if photos taken of him laying (half) pipe at a hotel party in 2009 have made their way online.

Dude is not clothed and not not having sex in them.

Several party goers managed to snap photos of White's naked romp with some girl, but his people managed to erase all the pics ... or so they had thought.

Shaun White

At least two of the pics have surfaced, though, one in which Shaun is making out with a hot blonde gal in front of other people, clothed, and another in which Shaun appears to be getting it in missionary style, grinning at the camera, totally nude.

Oh, and the ginger carpet matches the drapes, apparently.

The seller is looking for a serious payday, but so far has not found a buyer ... which doesn't really shock us to be honest. The Olympics were almost two years ago now, and when was the last time you thought about Shaun White?

He's awesome at snowboarding, but we're just saying.

A few weeks after his first public statements since his arrest on sexual abuse charges - in which he admitted to showering with boys, but rejected any notion that he's a pedophile - former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has spoken out again.

With 40 charges already filed against him, and with a new accuser coming forth this week, Sandusky told The New York Times:

"These allegations are false, I didn't do those things. I'm not the monster everyone made me out to be. I didn't engage in sexual acts."

The disgraced ex-coach will be in court on December 13 for a preliminary hearing, as he's currently charged with molesting eight kids over a 15-year period.

NFL star Rolando McClain was charged with four crimes Thursday following a dustup in his hometown, but it's a photo of him being taken into custody that is truly noteworthy.

Visiting his hometown of Decatur, Ala., the Oakland Raiders linebacker got popped after police say he held a gun to another man's head then fired it beside his ear.

Looks like somebody had a good laugh about it at least ...

Happy Arrest!

Police said the victim suffered injuries to his head and face during a fight with another man (who was also arrested) and that he begged McClain not to shoot him.

The former Alabama star obliged and fired it inches from his head instead.

McClain was charged with third-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment, and discharging a firearm within city limits ... while in town for his grandpa's funeral.

All things that make a man smile ear-to-ear apparently.

This is one of the more insane, and ridiculous moments in amateur sports history, but wow. Just wow. There are no other words needed to sum up the video clip below.

Don't try this at home. Not only is it somewhat dangerous, but it may take you a million attempts to jump off a boat at full speed and catch frisbee flung from a bridge.

The result was a catch so insane, you assume it's fake, but multiple camera angles and news reports confirm it's not. Whether you love sports or not, you'll cheer this:

Jay Cutler calls the shots on the football field, but when it comes to planning his own wedding, he says it's an activity best suited for his fiancee Kristin Cavallari.

"I don't really make too many of [wedding] decisions," the Chicago Bears quarterback said Wednesday on the Windy City's Waddle & Silvy ESPN radio show.

"I hear about them in passing or if I have to possibly write a check or something like that, but other than that, whatever she wants to do, I'm on board."

Jay and Kristin

Joking that he's "just kind of along for the ride," he told the show's hosts that they are "asking the wrong person" when it comes to knowing about the date or location.

But, while the star isn't devoted to helping plan his big day, he is committed to making this relationship work the second time around. That's the important thing, right?

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler got engaged a second time this week, after calling off their wedding this summer. "They're much happier together now," says a source.

"They just now understand each other a lot better. He understands what she needs and she totally supports him. They're there for each other 100 percent every day."

Prepare yourselves for one of the stranger, more sordid rumors you'll hear all year...

Laurie Fine is the wife of Bernie Fine, the Syracuse assistant basketball coach who was fired last week in the wake of allegations by three former ballplayers that he sexually assaulted them at various times during his 36 years on staff at the university.

The most damning piece of evidence against Bernie is a phone conversation recorded by accuser Bobby Davis in 2003. In it, Laurie appears to acknowledge her husband's despicable behavior, telling Davis:

"I know everything that went on... Bernie has issues, maybe that he's not aware of, but he has issues... you're better off just staying away from him."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are joining forces in their official new roles as ambassadors to the British Olympic and Paralympic teams.

Sadly, Pippa Middleton is not royalty and thus, will not be participating along with the aforementioned, adorable trio. She remains royally cute, however.

The Royals are part of a group of 27 other ambassadors named from among Britain's most inspirational and accomplished Olympians from previous games.

  • Wills
  • Kate Middleton, Hat
  • Ginger

In the cuteness department, team Great Britain has already won gold.

"Catherine, Harry and I are honored" and "hugely looking forward to an incredible sporting competition, but are also looking beyond next summer's games to the springboard it will provide for future success and excellence," William said in a statement.

"London hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will inspire so many people – particularly the young – to be the best they can be," he added.
