Georgia senior Kristie Krueger highlighted the second day of the Mt. SAC Relays by shattering the school’s 5000-meter run record late Friday.
Krueger, whose previous best of 16:30.09 was set at the 2010 Southeastern Conference Championships, sped to the top collegiate finish (second overall) after clocking a 16:00.66. This tops the previous school record of 16:13.96 set by Erin Jones at the 1997 NCAA Championships.
This is the second-fastest time in the SEC this year and No. 16 on the national performance list.
My latest conclusion based on scanty evidence - The B1G is a stinking cesspool of thuggery:
Nebraska's outgoing star cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was arrested Saturday on suspicion of assaulting a police officer, possibly hurting his status in next weekend's NFL draft.
Dennard, 22, has been projected to be as high as a second-round pick. But NFL.com draft analyst Gil Brandt said Dennard's arrest could drop him from the third to fourth round, a difference that could cost him about $300,000 in salary over a standard four-year rookie contract.
"It doesn't help the kid any," said Brandt, a former player personnel director for the Dallas Cowboys.
Dennard is known for his aggressive play. He and South Carolina receiver Alshon Jeffery were ejected from the Capital One Bowl for taking swings at each other. Brandt said he wouldn't connect Dennard's behavior in the bowl game to the incident early Saturday.
"Jeffery was probably catching a few passes and blocking him a few times, and you get frustrated. That's what happens," Brandt said. "I'm not sure why at 2 o'clock in the morning you're out and what provokes you to punch a police officer."
In typical blood-thirsty SEC style, I see this as a positive for UGA:
After nearly 40 years of marriage, Missouri football Coach Gary Pinkel and his wife, Vicki, have separated, Pinkel confirmed in a statement released by team spokesman Chad Moller.
"I am saddened to say that my wife and I separated at the beginning of this year," Pinkel said in a statement he released Friday afternoon. "Thank you to family and friends who have shown us support. I would ask that you please respect the privacy of the entire Pinkel family during this difficult time."
Gary and Vicki Pinkel met at Kent State, where he was a football player and she was a member of the cheerleading squad. They have three grown children — a daughter and two sons — and five grandchildren. Pinkel, who turns 60 on April 27, once told the Tribune he first met Vicki during a one-hour elective dance class at Kent State. They married shortly before his senior year in 1973.
I did a double-take to make sure I was in the right place last week as the Notre Dame Club of Chicago's annual Knute Rockne dinner got under way inside a Sheraton-Chicago ballroom. It may be a sign of the times that the room was maybe two-thirds full for Brian Kelly; the Irish are coming off back-to-back 8-5 seasons and have won 10 games only twice in the last 10 years. It's not that Kelly lacked confidence. There was a hint of a swagger in his voice as he talked about the program he is building and the system he is installing, and the staff changes he has made reflected the degree of each aide's compatibility with both. He's excited about them, too. One of my tablemates said he'd be a lot more excited about that system if Kelly had beaten Tulsa or South Florida with it, never mind Michigan or Stanford. But this was not a night for skepticism.
