Sidebar link incorrect[edit]

The link in the sidebar which says

College: Oklahoma

actually links to the Oklahoma State Cowboys football page instead of the Oklahoma Sooners page. Maybe someone can fix this, I don't know how.

2005 Vacated Victories[edit]

I think, if the wins that were vacated in 2005 are relevant to the Adrian Peterson article, it should also be noted that ruling was appealed and reversed thereby reinstating the wins: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3258745 — Preceding unsigned comment added by AMP81 (talkcontribs) 03:16, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

I may have missed it in the article, but I don't see anywhere in this article that mentions the Sooners vacating any wins, so there's no need to introduce anything about the wins being reinstated. – PeeJay 11:58, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
From the "Sophomore Season" heading: "On July 11, 2007 the NCAA announced the Sooners would have to vacate all victories from the 2005 season, including the bowl game, due to NCAA violations.[33]" — Preceding unsigned comment added by AMP81 (talkcontribs) 00:43, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure why I missed that the first time I looked. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll get that fixed ASAP. – PeeJay 20:35, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Adrian Peterson beat his 4-year-old son's scrotum[edit]

The police say that Peterson beat his 4-year-old son's scrotum, back, buttocks, ankles, and legs.[1][2]

Peterson sent a text message saying, among other things, “Got him in nuts once I noticed" about beating his son's scrotum.[3]

Personal life Christian section…. 7 out-of-wedlock children[edit]

Peterson is the biological father of at least 7 children. Many baby mamas. - http://www.tmz.com/2013/10/16/erica-syion-adrian-peterson-baby-mama-children-count-tmz-live/

He had a child with Ashley Brown years before he married her and, while they were in a relationship, Peterson fathered a bunch of other children with other women. - http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/11348826/adrian-peterson-talks-life-changes-death-son

Should this article be titled "Adrian Peterson (American football, born 1985)"?[edit]

Should this article be titled "Adrian Peterson (American football, born 1985)"? If not, why is "Adrian Lewis Peterson" the primary topic for "Adrian Peterson"? --Jax 0677 (talk) 19:48, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

This was decided in 2010, when a consensus agreed that this Adrian Peterson was significantly more prominent than the other running back of the same name. See Talk:Adrian Peterson/Archive 1#Requested move (and the neighboring discussions on that archive page). I don't think anything has changed that; his recent troubles would only contribute to his notoriety. --Arxiloxos (talk) 22:47, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
