Saturday Morning Links on VTM | Rivera Wins 800m US Jr Championships; Weekend Open Thread

A general view as riders make their way through the mountains during stage eleven of the 2012 Tour de France between Albertville and La Toussuire. - Presse Sports-US PRESSWIRE

Freshman Nick Rivera wins the 800m US Junior Championships. Curry took a pay cut. Kingsbury Q&A.

1. Rivera Wins 800m at U.S. Junior Champion! Wow! Congrats to freshman Nick Rivera for winning the 800m and is now the US Junior Champion! Wreck'Em!

2. Curry Takes Significant Pay Decrease | I don't know what else to make of this, but former head coach Kristy Curry took a $350,000 pay decrease to take the Alabama job. This is likely one of those deals where job security likely was more important than the amount.

3. More New Photos | Totally Texas Tech has new photos of the video board going up.

4. The Perils of Playing a True Freshman | MGoBlog takes a look at what happens when you play a true freshman quarterback and the absolute best case scenario would be what David Ash did last year. That's not what I want. True freshmen quarterbacks shouldn't play unless absolutely necessary.

5. Kingsbury Q&A | FootballScoop did a Q&A with head coach Kliff Kingsbury, including what he thinks is important for a quarterback.

6. Oklahoma St. Preview | SB Nation's Bill Connelly previews the "plug-and-play" Oklahoma St. Cowboys.

7. O'Bannon vs. NCAA | SB Nation's Patrick Vint is also following this case and it's a good summary as well as what to expect next.
