Golden Nuggets: Your potpourri of 49ers news

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

49ers links for Friday, November 30, 2012.

We had some technical issues so the Golden Nuggets didn't go up at their normal time. There are a few interesting articles out there and I wanted to get them posted for folks getting into work and looking for a little bit of this and that about their 49ers.

For people who miss the Nuggets when they normally post early in the morning, they remain up in the cover for much of the morning. Aaron and James provide a lot more detail when they do them, but once in a while I'll fill in and mine are shorter and just generally includes the link and the author.
