Hail To Links! The "Sweet Caroline" Edition

Hail-to-links_medium

Less than three weeks until college football starts, but some former Panthers are already seeing some action in pre-season NFL games. We'll check out what is going on with Jon Baldwin and Lucas Nix, take a look at how someone in the extended Pitt family received a gold medal, tell you about the latest accomplishment from our 3rd quarter intermission entertainment, and more...after the jump.

What does Pitt, the Olympic shot put, a gold medal, and Kiwis have in common? In short, Steven Adam's sister. Valerie Adams took home the silver medal but was awarded the gold after a positive drug test by the winner.

Living up to his full potential. SBN Kansas City recently spoke to our own Anson Whaley about Jon Baldwin's past and his potential.

Reliving the Sun Bowl. Lucas Nix was probably the most entertaining part of last night's 3-0 Cowboys/Raiders game. That's not saying much.

In unfortunate new uniform news. Virginia Tech decided that they would wear these helmets this season for a white-out. I'm sorry Hokie fans.

Reaching out, touching me, touching you. Neil Diamond received his star on the Hollywood Walk-of-Fame this past week.
