Athlon's Essential 11 Links of the Day: November 8, 2013


This is your daily link roundup of our favorite sports posts on the web for Nov. 8.

• Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory had a mock impromptu wedding with her tennis player boyfriend on Ellen. Seems like an excuse to link to aKaley slideshow.

• Oregon got its skulls quacked (sorry) for three and a half quarters last night. Naturally, Ducks fans didn't take it too well. Nor did wide receiver Josh Huff, who gave up a little prematurely.

• Triumph of the Nerds: Stanford players showed up to the postgame presser wearing nerd glasses.

Here's what the Stanford offense must've looked like to Oregon players and fans.

• You were probably watching college football last night, but Adrian Peterson was in full beast mode.

• Meanwhile, Baylor dinged up Big Game Bob's reputation even further, although the Bears didn't come out unscathed.

LSU fullback JC Copeland fell in the shower, suffered a concussion, and referred to himself as Luscious Brown. Don't tell Roger Goodell; he'll outlaw postgame showers.

Vijay Singh's lawyer has made a rather explosive allegation about PGA Tour drug testing. Could get interesting.

George Brett went nuclear on an autograph-seeker. Read the story before you judge Brett too harshly.

New Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon has a good sense of humor. He's going to need it.

• Fresh off making history, NASCAR driver Darrell Wallace Jr. showed he truly belongs in the sport by smacking a competitor.
