Two Quick Pieces of News.

First and foremost Antione Drakeford won the 400 meter dash at the Big East Championships held at Gettler Stadium this weekend. Drakeford blazed a 46.31, this is his second Big East title in the 400. He won it in 2008 with a and came in second last year with a time of 46.21. Last year Antione advanced to the NCAA Championships in the 400 and missed a spot in the finals by a couple of places. His march back to the NCAA's in Eugene at the legendary Hayward Field will begin on the 28th of May at a regional site to be announced.

Second Patrick Coyne was very impressive at the Nike Elite 11 Regional event at Ohio State. By most accounts he was either the best or second best QB at the event. Based off this performance Coyne seems to be a strong candidate to attend the Elite 11 QB camp in Southern California this July. I know that there is a large group of UC fans who don't care too much about recruiting. But the relevance of this for UC fans is this; Patrick Coyne is probably going to wind up as a highest rated QB ever to sign on the dotted line for UC. Even if you don't like to pay attention to kids until they don the Red and Black getting selected to the Elite 11 is a big deal. The list of former elite 11 QB's reads as a who's who of College QB's over the last decade. Coyne has a great chance to join that fraternity.
