Chomping at Bits is mega-sized today, and is heading home for the weekend. Whee!
More Muschamp contract details: I still haven't seen Will Muschamp's contract, so I may have to work on that, but the Orlando Sentinel and Only Gators have plenty more details about Muschamp's deal. Only Gators, in particular, has a fantastic chart listing all of the football assistant coaches' salaries, as well, and I wish I could show it to the guy in one of my classes this semester who told me that Charlie Weis was making more than Muschamp. If only. Meanwhile, ESPN's SEC blog positions Muschamp as "stuck in the middle" of the SEC coaching fraternity when it comes to salaries, which strikes me as a rather stupid phrasing, given Muschamp's paucity of head coaching experience.
Reche Caldwell arrested for, well, you can guess: Is it any surprise at all that the only thing current or former Gators appear to be getting arrested for right now is holding that sticky icky? Reche Caldwell was arrested for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended/revoked license on Thursday in Hillsborough County, according to the Tampa Tribune. The most important detail of this story is that Reche Caldwell's real first name is Donald.
Gators stalking Walker: Holmes County Bonifay's Chris Walker may be one of the finest basketball recruits in the Class of 2013, and Florida definitely wants him to stay in state and head up to Gainesville. Scout profiles Walker and notes Florida's interest — Florida is one of four schools to have offered Walker a scholarship, and Kentucky is looming — and paints a picture of an athletic forward who could be a go-to player for a program before heading on to the NBA.
Quick hits: Taurean Green is still cheering on his '04 teammates from the Canary Islands ... Chris Leak just signed with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders ... Sports By Brooks' Brooks thinks it's notable that sports that aren't football and basketball don't make Florida much money, for some reason ... Florida's lacrosse team, in action at the ALC Tournament this weekend, has connections to slain Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love ... Tebow Gator isn't lighting up Churchill Downs this week ... Gigi Meyer keeps on causing problems for her dad on Twitter ... and, finally, The Bull Gator notes that Muschamp may be a Coke man.
It's actually kind of believable that Muschamp could have been selling Coke at games, because Florida's Pepsi deal hasn't existed forever, but I don't know exactly when it came into effect.
