Happy Hump Day, Sooner Nation! It is a great day, because we now have NBA Basketball to tide us over from Saturday to Saturday. Speaking of things (and people) being back, Adrian Peterson brought home some hardware this weekend. We look at that and more in today’s hot links:

OU Links:

National Links:

  • Here’s how Mike Gundy came home and built Oklahoma State football. Say what you will about the Pokes, but Bedlam is more fun when both teams are good. Gundy has done quite a job in Stillwater. His 109-51 record as a head coach is impressive... especially considering when the fact that he’s 2-10 against the Oklahoma Sooners ;)
  • In case you aren’t on Twitter and weren’t forced to subject yourself to a ton of horrifying screen shots, Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome leg injury in last nights season opener. His first season with the Boston Celtics is over before the rest of the league has even played a game. This reaction by the Cleveland Cavaliers bench tells you pretty much everything you need to know.
  • Speaking of the NBA, Tim Cato wrote a great piece on the culture in Oklahoma City that has built them into legitimate championship contenders one again. The Thunder begin their season Thursday night at home against Enes Kanter and the New York Knicks.
  • One last NBA note: Kevin Durant hit a buzzer beater to beat the Houston Rockets last night... but it was waved off after replay showed he didn’t get the shot off in time. Just a shame. A real shame.
